Out In The Country by Future Hits 93bpm
Very cute song, only outdone by the cheeky band name. From San Francisco.
A Million Years by Alexander 91 bpm
Alexander is the singer from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, who has appeared in two of my other posts; here and here. Very sweet love song.
We the common by Thao and the Get Down Stay Down 90bpm
This is the same Thao from Mirah and Thao so if you like this you may want to go listen to them too.
A Movie Script Ending by Death Cab for Cutie 92bpm
Death Cab for Cutie are from Washington.
Rich Hum Of air by Shannon Wright 89bpm
Shannon Wright is from Atlanta, Georgia. I love this song, it has a sort of odd sound to it. Well her voice sort of stands out; she's intense.
Shine by The Album Leaf 92bpm
From San Diego. Instrumental, pretty.
