Velvet Owl Turn Ons - March 2011

Winter is finally on its way out, so what better way to welcome the chance to shed the overcoat and don a cheeky little blouson than the Velvet Owl playlist for March. 

Yuck 'Georgia' - Formed from the ashes of Cajun Dance Band, Yuck are updating the shoegazing manifesto written by Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth in the early nineties.  This track comes from their debut album released earlier this year. Turn it up loud!

Elbow 'Lippy Kids' - The standout track from Elbow's new album.  Garvey's songwriting just gets better and better. 

Holy Ghost! 'Do It Again' - This track has us cutting a rug all over Velvet Owl Towers at the moment.  The latest signing to James Murphy's DFA label, Holy Ghost! make us want to party like it's 1989. 

Grinderman 'Palaces of Montezuma' - Nick Cave and his band of merry noiseniks in a mellow mood. Beautiful!

Jessica Lea Mayfield 'I'll Be The One You Want Someday' - Sounding like a leaner Lucinda Williams, this track is taken from Mayfield's Dan Auerbach produced debut album.

The Go Go's 'Our Lips Are Sealed' - A perfect pop song to herald the start of Spring.

Those Dancing Days 'Reaching Forward' - Sweden's finest purveyors of electro-pop return with a new album in 2011. Our schoolboy crush on lead singer Linnea Jonsson doesn't appear as if it will be dissipating anytime soon.

Iron and Wine 'One More Try' -We can't get enough of Sam Beam's new record at the moment, and are confident in predicting 'Tree by the River' will feature as a track on our end of year 'best of' compilation. This, however, is something altogether different. A cover of George Michael's power ballad 'One More Try' recorded for the AV Club.
