TRACK 1:Do You Really Wanna Know (Papercuts)

This one came from a free Amazon download. A bit of an ethereal, dream pop confection from the fourth studio release of this band led by songwriter Jason Robert Quever. A very laid-back, non-aggressive tune that is night-and-day different from …

TRACK 2: Female Guitar Players are the New Black (Marnie Stern)

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

And I think oh_pook hit it on the head … there is a lot going on in this song! But Marnie Stern is worth your time to check out if you’re a fan of guitar, as she is one of the most accomplished female guitar players like ever.

TRACK 3: Skull (Sebadoh)

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

First of all, “Sebadoh” is just fun to say. And Scott, you hit this one on the nose! Good ear. Found this one off another free Amazon download (seriously – you need to check these out!). Pioneers of indie-rock, Sebadoh Includes Dinosaur Jr. bassist Eric Gaffney.

TRACK 4: Infinity Guitars (Sleigh Bells)

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

“Brooklyn noise pop” is how they’re described. They had me at “Infinity Guitars,” this was a free download track and I love the sassy cheerleaderish vibe that it provides. And is that a tambourine I hear? Love it, especially around the 2:00 mark where it goes all manic-panic.

TRACK 5: Block After Block (Matt & Kim)

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

A little bit punk, a little bit dance & a lot of fun. This duo makes a big, infectious noise. This was another free download and I’m now a fan of this Big Audio Dynamite-tinged pop. New disc is dropping in 2012, let this one make you happy until then.

Thanks for playing! Stay tuned for your next Friday Fiver! Coming … well … next Friday. Hence the name. :)
