The Raconteurs – Rich Kids Blues

The Raconteurs

No synths, not much experimentation and yet these guys still manage to stay relevant in the age of space age bachelor pad music. Their second album “Consolers of the Lonley” was refreshing to say the least, some simple, good ol’ guitar music. “Rich Kids Blues” is my favorite track but the entire album is a great listen. And yes the lead singer sounds like Jack White from the White Stripes because it is Jack White from the White Stripes. Good stuff.

The Black Ghosts – Repetition Kills You (RAC Remix)

Great remix. The original is good too but the production sounds a little generic, either way “The Black Ghost” is a cool band. Their lead singer is Simon Lord, former lead for Simian, now know as Simian Mobile Disco. Check them out.

M.I.A. – Arular

With the success of “Kala,” many of us may have forgotten or possibly not even know of M.I.A.’s first album, “Arular.” While not as adventurous as her sophomore effort, Arular still packs the same social consciousness, catchy cadences and hard hitting rhythms that make Maya irresistible to begin with. A true underground classic. Here’s “Hombre” & “Pull Up The People.”

Beirut – Postcards From Italy

I posted the new video for “La Llorona” (cry baby in spanish) yesterday and I have to admit, at first listen I was completely lost, then amazed, then lost again. That song is so theatrical and epic, it’s fantastic. You feel like your watching a movie, what kind I don’t know. Here’s “Postcards from Italy,” another great song from their upcoming March Of The Zapotec EP scheduled for a February 17 release in the US. High quality.
