It's the only Everly Brothers I own, sadly. Found it in the bottom of a discount bin at Walmart about two years ago.
Anyway, it's a great collection of songs, expect "Ebony Eyes," maybe.

My favorite is undoubtedly "Cathy's Clown" - a magical song. My second favorite (and one I was first introduced to by Harry Nilsson) is "Walk Right Back."
I'll have to look for more of their albums.

^That's the only Everly Bros album I own as well. Love all songs except for the limp 'Lucille'.  The favourite's gotta be 'All I Have To Do Is Dream'.

Listening to Daft Punk's 'Random Access Memories' for the first time right now.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

If Don were isolated from Phil, went along as a separate picture, I'd be thinking it's Laurence Juber, former member of "Wings". Anyway, back on topic, I finally listened to Kirsty Maccoll's debut & when track 11 came on, I was gobsmacked to find out she replicated the Rip Chords' awesome cover of "She Thinks I Still Care", only "he" instead of "she", with the "Blue Moon" guitar solo & spoken bits: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQKgaPqvAig&feature=kp

I heard plenty versions of it (Del Shannon, John Fogerty, Beck) & they all had the George Jones-sung melody. Having folk & country roots, one would expect that Kirsty would do likewise but instead, she picked some surf band's obscure cover (though there's basically only a lyrical similarity). So cool, that means she's actually been listening to The Rip Chords, loved their cover so much so she then decided to sing the song that way. Compare: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIXNJDmgCGk
The latter wins by a lot - it's too catchy & the background vocals are way superior here.

The Bilinda Butchers, named after the vocalist/guitarist from My Bloody Valentine, are an excellent dream pop group that makes gauzy snythpop and have three EPs and some demos on their Bandcamp -- all for free too!

In particular, you should check out their 2011 EP Regret, Love, Guilt, Dreams...



...and the Goodbyes EP from 2012:



They'll have a new album out sometime in 2014, possibly within the next couple months as I read in a recent interview that they're almost ready to send it off for mixing.

I've been listening to this album lately, too.

"Hickory Wind" is a masterpiece of loneliness.

I came upon this split EP with contributions by Yohuna, Emily Reo, MoonLasso, and Brown Bread last night. I had not previously heard of any of these artists but it's an excellent slice of ambient pop music. The music is largely insular, dreamy and synth-based with fleeting female vocals laid over it. There isn't a weak track on the release but I'm particularly taken by Emily Reo's contributions...

A metric f***-tonne Blue Öyster Cult by way of the Columbia Albums Collection between repeated plays of Colin Blunstone's "One Year" and everything by Everything But the Girl.
