Rogue Wave - Permalight artwork

Last week, Stereogum posted a new one from Rogue Wave‘s upcoming album Permalight (above album artwork via Spinner). “Good Morning” is more electronically-oriented than the band’s past releases, but there’s a familiar infectiousness at work:

The Dodos played Letterman on Friday. Dave’s introduction is priceless (“Their album is entitled Time to Die. Well, Happy New Year!”), after which the band launches into “Fables”:

Finally, a couple of exciting guests on Daytrotter recently. Yoni Wolf (WHY?) did a session a few days back, featuring three songs from the still-fresh Eskimo Snow and Bob Dylan’s “As I Went Out One Morning”, explained below:

This is a Bob Dylan song from the album John Wesley Harding. I inherited a bunch of my parents old records, this being one of them. I could never really get into it for a long time and preferred Blonde on Blonde or Bringing It All Back Home or something but I decided to give it more of a chance at some point and it lived on my turntable for about 6 months. I like how understated it is. This song is a very good sample of the record. I also really like the songs “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine”, “Dear Landlord”, and “All Along The Watchtower” (Dylan’s version is much subtler but I believe much more powerful than Jimi’s)

Little Wings also did a session recently, with four unreleased songs and a cover of Damien Jurado’s “Last Rights”.
