pete doherty iluuuuu

tomorrow is pete's 30th birthday. later this month his new solo album grace/wastelands gets released in the us. it is pretty much amazing.

i was pretty excited when i saw 1939 returning on the tracklist because i have a version of that song i ripped off youtube. it is a lovely, lovely song and the album version is perfection.

--> 1939 returning <--

another rough song i had ripped off youtube was salome. and again the album version is too great.

--> salome <---

here's one more track for good measure. i hadn't heard this one before, but i absolutely adore this song. (it was co-written by carl barât, btw)

--> a little death around the eyes <---

also, he's looking way too adorable in the video for the first single off the album, last of the english roses.

you can pre-order the album here @

two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl

so basically watchmen kicked a bunch of ass. and the soundtrack did too.

---> unforgettable - nat king cole <---
---> the times they are a-changin' - bob dylan <---
---> hallelujah - leonard cohen <---
---> all along the watchtower - jimi hendrix <---

i told you i would stay

i know that ed is a little upset about grizzly bear's new album veckatimest leaking so early. i debated blogging about it. but i love this album SO MUCH already i just have to. HAVE TO. it is absolutely perfect. but, seriously kids, go out and BUY IT when it's released. i know that i intend to get me some pretty pretty vinyl.

these are my two favorites. i had the live version of two weeks from letterman this summer and loved it. then i heard this version. and died a little from the pretty. i simply cannot WAIT to hear it on vinyl. i know this track alone will blow me away.

---> two weeks <---
---> i live with you <---

again, go to insound or somewhere in may and BUY IT.
