Cursed by stupid stupid henchmen. its um angry ska punk shit
Listening to the new Robyn album, "Body Talk, Pt. 1". It was back in 2005 that she released her last album "Robyn" on her own indielabel, then a few years later it broke through on the UK charts and later on got a US release along with much critical acclaim. I think maybe she's nervous about this follow-up. She shouldn't be, it's very good. Dancing on my own is the best track. THE BEST TRACK
ALSO I LISTENED TO THIS OVER THE LAST WEEK:
Sleigh Bells - AAAAAAH MY EARS HURT BUT I CANT STOP LISTENING
Crash Test Dummies new album - Better than the sum of it's parts but still not very good. But at least it sounds like they're enjoying themselves on a few of these tracks. Good for them!
They Might Be Giants new album "Here Comes The Science" - an album of childrens songs about Science! Best of all is the song about THE ELECTRIC CAR! Now, there is something slightly sinister and underhanded about making a song, for the kids, spouting pinko leftie treehugger propaganda about electric cars, but Goddamit if I cant stop singing it as I drive to work every morning. Lets take a ride in an electric car/Happiness resides in an electric car/You can even ride an electric car/Won't you take a ride with me?/Come and take a ride with me!
yeah it's been a good week.
My kids used to be nuts for TMBG - gotta get the science one.
Currently on the .mp3 player: Yes - Time & A Word
At Starbucks, listening to a reggae version of Country Roads, taking me home to West Jamaica.
I got sticky-icky-icky-icky weeeeeeeed
I got a shot of tequila in meeeee
Yes, but the best track on the new MIA album is BORN FREE.
I'm not gonna link to the official video because it's depressing as hell and not really what the song is about I think.
"Born Free" kicks in with those drums all KAAA KAAA KAAA BUH-KAA-KAA-KAA-KAA K-K-K-K-K-K-K-KK and I'm all "MR. SELF DESTRUCT NUH NUH NUH NUH NUH NANANA"
Feisty Cadavers by John 5. And if you do not know who John 5 is you should be ashamed of yourself. I have not heard a guitarist capable of putting such feeling into his work like this guy in a long time (for instance "Can I live again"). Ok, maybe not so much "a long time" as I'm sure those of you who know their shit will hear his influences such as Satriani, but still, damn this guy can play.
it might just be the fact that that song is pure sex lifting off the runway
Whaaaats gone wrooooong......I cant seeee straight....beeeeen toooo looong soooo fuuull ooooof hate.....
Soilwork are Swedish and they're definitely more alt/nu-metal than death metal in recent years. I've heard detractors say they sound like Korn; to that, I say, Korn wishes they sounded this good.
Anyone who complains that Soilwork sold out, but still likes In Flames, doesn't know what the fuck.
Put this song on your partymixes after Majorz Lazer's "Keep it going louder" but before Hot Chip's "Ready for the Floor" trust me it's gonna work out great!
Currently I've got three albums in rotation:
Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty, Big Boi's supremely entertaining solo album. Top track currently: Daddy Fat Sax
The ArchAndroid the debut album from pop/soul singer Janelle Monae. It's a hugely ambitious, genre straddling concept album that on first listen left me too stunned to even appreciate the ridiculously good music on it. One song doesn't do it justice but here's the single anyway, featuring none other than Big Boi also.
American Slang, Gaslight Anthem's third album. A little bit of a disappointment this one but there is enough of that good ol' rock n roll bluster in songs like the title track to keep me entertained.
I'm thinking I might be up for some metal next and that new Soilwork album looks like it will fit the bill nicely!
