Here are all of 1908cub's jams.
The title of 'Pride of Denton, Texas' belongs to Centro-matic, but Midlake is a very close second, despite the letdown of their last record. This is my favorite song from their best record, "Trials of Van Occupanther."

Where The Postal Service started. Still one of the best songs in the catalog.

One of my favorite bands since I began photographing shows a little over five years ago. Their blend of earnest and heartfelt folk songs recall Dust Bowl-era Oklahoma and mid-century Appalachia; dirt-smudged faces and courting couples. I'm going to see them on Saturday in Brooklyn. It's their first show in nearly a year. They've lost their multi-instrumentalist, Jocie Adams to her new band but there's a new album on the way and I can't wait to hear some songs from it.

I was lucky enough to be sat next to Memoryhouse on the short up-and-down flight from Dallas to Austin on the way to SXSW. Lovely people. I had only heard two songs of theirs which were on a free Beko digital single of "To The Lighthouse" and an earlier version of "Lately" (appended with (Deuxieme.)) Both versions sample Jon Brion's "Phone Call Theme" from the soundtrack, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." I always thought I liked Deuxieme better but the newer version has won out. It's lush and dreamy, much like most of Memoryhouse's material: atmospheric, almost-heartbreaking, soundscapes that traffic in gorgeous and lilting.

In terms of the most perfect pop songs ever written, I'd put this one right up there with The La's "There She Goes" and Matthew Sweet's "Sick of Myself." In and out in less than three minutes, a catchy guitar hook and melody, simple plaintive vocals - this song is pop perfection.

A band that is criminally underrated and can write an indie rock/pop song with the best of them. Even if they have a tendency to be a little silly and uneven, there's an honest bit of songwriting chops here. Their "What the Hell Do I Know?"EP is pretty much perfection. But this is not on it.

This song became a jam a while ago, in the old school way - listening to the car radio. In December of 2011 I was driving back from the Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings show in upstate Tarrytown with my friend, Dave. When this came on WFUV, I fired up Shazam to figure out who it was. Such a great song then and it's been in rotation a lot the past week.
