Bilbo Baggins - Back Home

So I was going to post Leonard Nimoy's "Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins", but then I guess I already did a couple years ago. Instead I found this band, I do believe it will suffice.

Christopher Lee - In The Willow Meads Of Tasarinan

Here's one that I did know about. Christopher Lee probably would have made a pretty awesome Treebeard, but I suppose he did just fine as Saruman.

Ed Sheeran - I See Fire

So it was "Hobbit Day" a short while ago, which apparently is celebrated on the anniversary of the release of The Hobbit. I am a Tolkien fan, and am looking forward to the upcoming completion of the movie trilogy (despite its glaring incongruencies with the book), but this seems like taking things a bit too far. Meh, who am I to judge? Might as well just jump on the bandwagon. Happy belated Hobbit Day! Here's a relevant song with millions of views that I had no idea existed.

Primus - Live At Woodstock

I inadvertently took the weekend off. Let's wish Les Claypool a happy birthday together.

SBTRKT - New Dorp, New York

Might as well just come out and say it. I'm not feelin' the new album. I absolutely loved the self-titled LP, it was my favorite release of 2011, and when this new disc was announced it was a shoe-in to be a contender for my best of this year, but this one just... doesn't do it. Don't count your chickens? 

If you're into weird indie hip-hop hybrid stuff you'll probably like it. I tried to get into it. Gave it a few listens, and nothing, just... meh. This track... cool video, don't like the song. I suppose that's not surprising since I'm not really into Vampire Weekend. Anyway, I hope you like it more than me.

Sylvan Esso - Coffee

This is Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn, out of North Carolina of all places. Nice and smooth, good for a late night chillin session. Like.

Austra - Painful Like

I'm back at last! Nice little road trip, good times had all around, now it's back to business. We need some beats. This one comes courtesy of Jenn. Thanks Jenn.
