Bark bark


Daily posts were shot to hell well over a month ago. Yet the blog remains innocuously plugging along. Be sure to watch the vid.

Here's a song for all you kings and queens and graduate in-betweens:

Indian Love Call

Heyyyyyy, so....with this link, don't play the papa roach song. Or play it and don't blame me. Anything by Tears for Fears after that will be worth your while. ESPESH Mad World.

If you're not into that, dig yourself some Slim Whitman:

Yaaaaaase

The soundtrack of summer, all up in this song.

This song sounds like the synthesized version of those words.

God bless Copenhagen


This song blew me mind. May it yours as well. Trentemøller is a native Dane and a thunderous electronic beat wizard, much like Hamlet.


after you listen to that, watch this:

Bum ba dum


My bro Joe was recently in Japan and he brought me back a package of Koala Yummies. It is the greatest after school snack ever created. By humans. This particular box is even better because it has Japanese characters all over it. I love it and shall treasure it forever. Now that I've said that, here is a completely unrelated song:

Around the Bay - Department of Eagles

exceptionally good drumming in this song.

Back with a vengeance



Given my long hiatus, I should really have something special here for ya'll tonight. Ya'll being.... who exactly reads this blog? I don't know. At this point it's surely down to zero. So that's why I began this endeavor in the foist place, to entertain moi. Number one. Me, myself and I. So here it is, Erin! All for you! And all the other Erins (spellings may vary) out there who may possibly give a crap. For anybody else, it's a toss up.


Oso is Spanish for bear. I know stuff (oh-so mucho).

Bananas


Not his best movie ever, but in it we see a sound evolution of Woody's love for 30's and 40's jazz. It goes from slapstick silly in "Bananas" to romanticism in "Annie Hall" to epic Gershwin pieces featured in Manhattan. Man loves city. City loves music.

Where we're going we don't need roads.


It's time to dubstep into the future. I don't know what that means, but this song/artist is mellow dub step madness. may it lighten your day.

Do you notice this thing happening with people and their computers and everyone becoming a DJ?

Okay guys, you don't know cool until you've heard this song and it's vocal range.

Jackson 5

I'll Bet You

....and exhale:

These are not pretty musicians



Good thing too, I don't like my musicians pretty.

Everlasting Light

This is a song by The Black Keys.

What else can I say other than I love it?

I ain't worried and I ain't scurried


Have a Good Time

I should be depressed, my life's a mess, but I'm havin' a good time.

I ain't worried and I ain't scurried.

Le clan des Siciliens



John Zorn -- avant-garde composer and also former of a punk band in the 80's. However this song is a cover of Ennio Morricone's The Sicilian Clan. Zorn/Morricone (pictured respectively) make a lovely pairing. I want to see this movie now (a french film by Henri Verneuil from 1969). Check out the trailer with what looks like the original Robert DeNiro:

The hand of the devil is warm in the night





Okay, so. Here is a song and a half. More like a song and a video, both courtesy of that lovely gentleman at gvb. The song is cave grill and the band is arch m.

Two more treats from gorillavsbear: this beach housey song called Outer Limits by SLEEP OVER.

And lastly, I love this Terry Gilliam-esque video. It's like watching paper dolls come to life:
By the way, this should have been the U2 song, because it's fucking radical -

Munchies, or: Get Your Snack On



I am a bad blogette. I neglect blogly duties. But that can all be fixed by listening to this mind bending wizardry:

Elvis Viles


Who can resist Elvis? Not I. Those lips, those sideburns, that mascara! (in some cases). He really is a gorgeous man with an even more gorgeous voice. I've always liked this song - Surrender - and someone put a lurvely little video together for the song. Long live the king.

In Through the Out Door



Fool in the Rain :: Led Zeppelin

That's right, it's an obscure, whistle blowing infused rarity. Raise your hand if you hate when DJ's say they're pulling the led out...

That's someone raising BOTH their hands. I know, I'm endlessly entertaining.

Ever heard of a little show called Soul Train?

Loudon Wainwright III: father of Rufus and Mary, actor, singer, and tamer of shetland ponies, the man is a legend. He's been around since the 40's and he's even appeared on a Scorsese soundtrack. Anyone who is a III is a well established individual indeed.

Not in much of a 'splaining mood these days. Let the music speak for itself, I say. Witty commentary is merely a distraction. Oh dear, I've said too much.

Speaking of Beatles



Here is a cover of a cover. The Beatles covered Barrett Strong and Flying Lizards covered it still with their own spatula noise. It's only a matter of time before spatula noise becomes a staple of music everywhere.

What a drag it is getting old...



Mother's Little Helper is rapidly becoming one of my favorite Stones songs. I mean, they're not Beatles, but thanks for playing anyway guys.

Annie Clark

Also known as St. Vincent, this song is from her album "Marry Me." It's layered and beautiful and starts with a swirling piano. I can't put up a picture of her because she's too stunning. And I don't know how on pcs.

All My Stars Aligned

What was your question? I've got the answer.

Adam Sandler's most underrated performance

Overture - Jon Brion

Tis the opener of the Punch-Drunk Love soundtrack. And it shouldn't surprise you that the transition into "Tabla" is seamless. That song may in fact be better, but the Overture is just so beautiful.

I put a spell on you



Four Tet is a gentleman named Kieran Hebden who bends acoustic riffs into strangely sweet shapes around bubbling beats. Everything is Alright could easily be called hypnosis.

Sorry if this link slows your page up, but it's worth hearing. Mike Slott, praised by Flying Lotus, is a soundscape magician. Check out the song Sun Tan.

Harmony harmony


This blog is intended for anybody who wants to hear a song a day. Also it's intended for people partial to my recommendations. So if you fit into these two categories, this post is for YOU! Now today I see there are ten of you. That's swell. Thanks A.N. Fizzle for becoming the tenth. "10" looks so much better than "9." Now that protocol is out of the way, we can get down to Erasure. If you already take them less seriously because of the picture, don't watch this video. Merely turn it on and walk away from your computer so you can enjoy what Erasure has to give {a lot}. Always Erasure.

CASH



We've all heard Johnny Cash covering NIN, but this lesser known cover (and dare I say better) is of Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus. It's one helluva song, may it wow you.

Well bless my soul, Grooveshark is improving their website. As lala is shutting down, Grooveshark is stepping up. So here are some motherfuckers called Rafter (the foul language is theirs, not mine). Fruit and Paper are 2 of the songs from their newest album Animal Feelings.
