Daily Download: "Blood and Marrow," Amandine

Published December 19, 2005 8:01AM (EST)

The debut record of Swedish band Amandine on Fat Cat records, home of the Animal Collective, Múm and others, "This Is Where Our Hearts Collide," is almost disconcertingly straightforward, modest and lovely alt-countryish indie rock without a hint of envelope pushing or adventurousness. "Blood and Marrow" sounds like a prettified Will Oldham tune. Also available for free download is "Halo."
