This is the end of the whaleroad

(source of the title - it's not from Moby Dick)

Just a note: I've been packing and finishing house-type projects for the past few days because I'll be leaving for Oberlin on Saturday (the joy of the 9-hour drive!). I'm seriously looking forward to getting back to Obie-land, where hippies and hipsters roam free in their natural habitats. The posting will be sketchy for the next 5 or 6 days, but stick with me - things should get back to normal by next Tuesday. There's no lack of bands I'd like to post about, just a shortage of time.

Noah & the Whale
I've been smiling at these British fellows' music all week - it would have been perfect for the Life Aquatic. Think low-fi goodness geared towards sing-a-longs, complete with handclaps and tambourines. The band's first single (it's of an EP length) is due out September 24th.

[the 1st track is highly rec'd!]
Noah & the Whale - 5 years time
Noah & the Whale - Jocasta
Pre-order 5 years time single
Noah & the Whale's Myspace

Or, The Whale
Good alternative country and folk rock (whatever term floats your boat) seems to come from all directions - in this case it's from San Francisco, and it's accessible and unpretentious, catchy and enjoyable. I'm thinking it'll be perfect for the long drive to Ohio, especially since I'll be with my favorite Bob Dylan fan.

Or, the Whale - Call and Response
Or, the Whale - Fixin' to Leave

Bonus: White Whale - O'William, O'Sarah
