Marinelli's Songs For the Day

I kinda went on an indie rock tear the other day, so if you like tight jeans-wearing, long hair-having, sexuality-questioning musicians, today is your day.

In an Aeroplane Over the Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel
As I understand it, Neutral Milk Hotel is a now defunct indie band from the 90's. Acoustic melodies, and lyrics that don't make any sense.
The Twist - Frightened Rabbit
A wavering lead singer kind of takes away from an otherwise good song with a cool piano melody.
Lump Sum - Bon Iver
This dude has a voice that makes angels cry. Ignore the first twenty or so seconds, and you got yourself a beautiful ballad. Definitely check this guy out if you like this kind of music.
Percussion Gun - White Rabbit
Crazy drumming makes this song worthwhile
Howl - Florence & The Machine
Wailing female vocals and and an almost military sounding drumbeat.
Until We Bleed - Kleerup ft. Lykke Li
Spooky vibe, with some typical Lykke Li weirdness. Drive around at night with this one on.
Belshazzar - Johnny Cash [Machine Drum Remix]
Classic Johnny song gets a kinda cliched update. I like it anyway.
