Justice – Stress

These days it seems like a song can be discovered, blow up and fade away all in the same week. Unfortunately, this video was a victim of this new rapid pace consumption. Possibly inspired by Mathieu Kassovitz’s “La Haine,” “Stress” captures the not so romantic side of the Paris suburbs. Hard. † Here’s the live performance of “Stress” from “A Cross the Universe.” Sounds like your watching Hitchcock or something, I can only imagine how crazy this concert was.

Wu-Tang Clan – M.E.T.H.O.D. Man

I’ve decided something: Commercial things really do stink. As soon as it becomes commercial for a mass market it really stinks.” – Andy Warhol

If Drella was around in the early 90’s he would have listened to Wu-Tang. Regardless of genre or even art form, not many artist achieve what Wu-Tang did with their early music. Trying to explain it could be a book.

360 degrees of perfected styles, raw art at its best.

The White Stripes – Conquest

This song is bad ass.

Andrew Bird – Oh No

Wesleyan (MGMT, Santogold, Boy Crisis, Amazing Baby) seems to just pump out musicians like Duke breeds NBA basketball players. Andrew Bird sits quite comfortably with the aforementioned, perhaps the best musician from the bunch, he can play violin, guitar, mandolin, and glockenspiel and he’s a great whistler. His music is not as new sounding as some would like but in now way is it lacking. “Oh No” is the highlight from his upcoming album “Noble Beast.” Good stuff.

Lily Allen – 22

I like Lily Allen ; ]

This song is about a girl who spent her 20’s partying it up, living the life and soon realized she was 30, alone, in a mediocre job and with no sight of love. Tragic.

Cause all she wants is a boyfriend, she gets one night stands.
She’s thinking how did I get here? I’m doing all that I can…
It’s sad but it’s true how society says her life is already over.
There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say.
Until the man of her dreams comes along picks her up an puts her over his shoulders. It seems so unlikely in this day and age.”

Dee Dee Sharp – I’m Not In Love

Dee Dee Sharp

Don’t know how many time’s I’ve tried to explain this to my ex-girlfriends. The intro and outro are absolute bliss.

Im not in love, so don’t forget it
Just a silly phase I’m going through.
And just because I call you up,
Don’t get me wrong, don’t think you gotten me…
I’d like to see you, but then again that doesn’t mean you mean that much to me.
So if I call you, don’t make a fuss,
Don’t go and tell your friends about the two of us…”

Haha, you can’t take yourself too serious when you like someone ; ) One of the most authentic love songs I’ve ever come across. High quality.
