EMPT: Greatest Hits 2009, Vol. 2

The_Greatest-Cat_Power_480

Round 2: Fight!

I feel bad for anyone who see’s those words and doesn’t immediately hear the Street Fighter voice in their heads, this post would have started off a lot more entertaining for you. So last week we started our greatest hits series which will be one post a week till the end of the year highlighting some of our most loved post. We’ll start off with Lose You, from Peaches’ I Feel Cream. My post on this song inspired a comment by a guy named Richard which is probably the most entertaining and passionate comment I’ve seen on this site to date. Check out the original post here and scroll down to see the comment.

The next song is a mash-up by Brooklyn’s own Bearbot. The song features the lyrics to Young Folks which is hands down my favorite PBJ song. I wrote a post about it back in September, check it out here.

Finally, I’d like to close off this installment of our greatest hits series with one of my favorite songs from 2009, Electric Tickle Machines – Women Are The New Men. I pretty much wrote a book report on this subject so I won’t talk much about it this time around but check out the old post here and listen to a great song about a very relevant topic, enjoy.

Peaches – Lose You

Peaches is like the indie pop Lil’ Kim. Her lyrical themes are sexual, intense and just downright dirty, I love it. For the squares who can’t handle this type of circle, she may be a little much for you. Her new album, I Feel Cream, is due in a month and from what I’ve heard it won’t be dissapointing. Yes the album is called I Feel Cream, and yes her last album was called Impeach My Bush and the one before that Fatherfucker.  Yes, you are a pervert. By no means however should you mistake Peaches for some sort of brainless pop music slut, there is in fact a method to her madness. When asked why she would call her album Fatherfucker she said:

Why do we call our mothers motherfuckers? Why do we stub our toe and say, “Aww motherfucker!”? What is a motherfucker? … We use it in our everyday language, and it’s such an insanely intense word. I’m not one to shy away from these obscene terms that we actually have in our mainstream. Motherfucker is a very mainstream word. But if we’re going to use motherfucker, why don’t we use fatherfucker? I’m just trying to be even.”

Modern feminist? Unorthodoxed rebel? Whatever it is, you’ve gotta love the hyper aware people in this world, they’re the only one’s always trying to make things better. With so much complacency, indecision and middle-mindedness in 2009, it’s hard to find people with real conviction and indentity. So here’s to Peaches and her new album, enjoy fatherfuckers.

Simian Mobile Disco – Hustler

I like girls, that like girls, who like me & like girls.

Is it just me or has there been a significant  increase in the amount of girl on girl make out sessions in New York City nightlife? It’s awesome. I won’t ask too many questions or speak too much on the subject so just carry on girls, carry on.

A good friend put me on to this video way back when it came out, I think it was ‘06… Great beat, great concept, excellent execution. Here’s a little kiss & tell for your Friday morning, enjoy.

“I’m a hustler baby, that’s what my daddy’s made me.”
