Four (so-so songs) for Friday

Promising title, eh? I’m sure you just can’t wait to dive in.

Well, when I go from one pretty average Four for Friday posting to the next without anything else substantial in between, this is what we’re left with.

That said, these songs really aren’t all that bad.

The Strokes – Under Cover of Darkness // This one is off their upcoming album, Angles, due out later this month. Not my normal kick, but nothing wrong with branching out a bit.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Belong // Also off my well-worn path of ultra low-key, but there are things to like about this song.

Jamie Barnes – Approach My Soul, The Mercy Seat // Now this is more like it.

Mumford & Sons – Sister // So word is that they were on the Grammys. That’s big time. Of course, it also means that now that they’ve gone “mainstream” I’m probably all done with them. That’s not entirely true (just mostly true). I’m actually glad that some quality music got a little well-deserved recognition.
