The Persuaders – Trying Girls Out

I’m not a one girls guy, and they know it. When it comes to love I don’t lie, and the girls respect me for it. Ain’t gonna say my nose can’t be over but right now there’s just too many fine ladies out there to choose one from…” The Persuaders – Trying Girls Out Subscribe […]

The Velvet Underground – I’m Waiting For The Man

When this album was released in 1967 it was largely ignored. Fools. Since then it has been recognized as one of the most influential and critically lauded rock albums in history. It was recorded in 1966 during  Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable multimedia event tour, which I wont even try to describe. Don’t know if […]

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – A Teenager In Love

Am I the only one that finds this song a little strage? I mean it’s pretty clear the song is about the sad story of a teenager so deeply involved with drugs that he has no friends, is willing to try anything and ends up overdosing.  The instrumentation and vocal performance however, have that hopeful […]

The Black Ghost – It’s Your Touch

This Smooth Jazz 101 inspired track is nothinig short of amazing. The chord progression is as cheesy as it gets but somehow still manages to have the feeling of something you would want to hear at a cool after hours joint. This track is completely out of place in their album, which makes it that […]

One eskimO – Givin’ Up (Don Diablo Remix)

Stephan, Don Diablo’s manager sent me this in the AM… I’m just going to post his email, I can’t disagree. “Don Diablo delivers this week’s hottest record with his remix for One eskimO’s “Givin’ Up”, which is taken from their forthcoming album “All Balloons”. Don Diablo takes the original song to another level with added […]

Lykke Li – Little Bit: The Remixes

I started binging on Youth Novels again and with that comes all the amazing remixes the album has inspired. Perhaps the most remixed track from the album is Little Bit, I can think of about 8 off the top. From what I gather this song is about a “friends with benefits” type of relationship that […]

Air France – Collapsing at Your Doorstep

In her usual fashion, Steph Lund sent me this amazing song a few weeks ago but I’ve been so busy that I never got around to posting/listening to it. This song truly is something else, bliss is pretty much the only word I can use to describe it. I’m off to Nantucket for the weekend so […]

Pete & The Pirates – Mr. Understanding

The pop/punk blend is a feeling I really can never get enough of, at least when it’s done right. Pete & The Pirates are a band from Reading, England, they formed in 2005 and have since released two official EPs. Their sound is a mix of 80s post punk and 90’s American indie rock, fresh. […]

Bat For Lashes – What’s a Girl To Do?

These guys sampled the drums from “Be My Baby,” one of my favorite 60’s songs performed by The Shangri-Las and produced by one of my musical heroes, the pop mastermind Phil Spector. At face value, this song is about the thrill being gone, the end, going from liking someone to indifference. The callous overtone may turn […]

Nickel Eye Feat. Wale – Brandy of the Damned (Marc Ronson Remix)

Just got reminded of this song by Sean Mattison, the man everyone should be following on Twitter. I remember hearing the original a while back but never really kept it in rotation, this remix may change that. It was produced by Marc Ronson, notice the trademark brass arrangements and funky break beat. Wale, with the […]
