A Proper Burial


Archangel :: Burial

)))))))remix((((((((


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.

Kooks

Nurse With Wound & Stereolab

Simple Headphone Mind

The jam of the evening.

Top hits in 1961



Lonnie Donegan - Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor?

Only when it's on the bedpost overnight.

If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make foghorns out of?

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.

this is the fucking SOTD

TALKING SHIT ABOUT A PRETTY SUNSET
MODEST MOUSE

Thee best of thee best.

why won't they turn the heat down!?


Who do you think you are, some kind of aquarium drunkard? I think I'm going berserk. I can't think. How can I? The universe is expanding and it's full of cosmic debris. But what business is that of mine.

Sorrow - The National

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.

Playing Slotts


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.

More for me


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.

alpha BETA gaga

Feliz cinco de mayo



I don't know my Santana like I should, but I know this song comes highly recommended from an opinion I highly respect. So, in celebration of Cinco de Mayo, here is Mr. Carlos Santana with Samba Pa Ti. Margaritas and Mexican beer for all!

I've even got the month of May



Found a better song -

The Rolling Stones covering My Girl. Nothing in the world sounds better.

Also listen to Back Street Girl on that album. FUCKING FANTASTIC.

I'm officially locked back into a Stones phase.

Bubble yum


Summer feels like it's juuuust around the corner. SO, here's something I'm planning on driving around with all summer long- Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People. They may be hipsters, but they're hipsters with some catchy bubblegum.

Son of a bee sting



Love is Strange - Mickey & Sylvia

This little number spans decades; recorded in the fifties, featured in a film set in the sixties and carrying a scene in a movie from the eighties, it's a dream come true.

Lewis Allan Reed



Here is an organ-infused, soul(ful or less, I'm not quite sure) version of Sweet Jane by a short-haired and blond Lou Reed. He's shiny and skinny, like any good disco. He's even wearing sunglasses on stage. Join in or get out.
