Julian Casablancas – Left & Right In The Dark

By now I’m sure most of you have heard about the new Julian Casablancas album Phrazes For The Young, and if you’ve heard the whole thing I’m curious to know what you think about it. I posted 11th Dimension and we all know how great that song is but I can’t say the rest of the album had the same impact. It’s a decent album but aside from that song, Left & Right In The Dark and say maybe two more there’s just nothing that standout to rave about. Don’t get me wrong, I like the album but I may have to listen to it a little more to really understand it.

With that said, I thought it would be nice to go back to 2001 for a second and post a little post-punk/garage rock revival for your Thursday morning. The new Julian Casablancas still writes incredible songs but I have to say the energy and sound he was so meticulous about creating back in those is second to none. The vocals seemed to blend in better with the production and everything came together to give you that unique experience that pretty much created that garage punk movement at the time.

Someday is my favorite track from The Strokes extremely hyped and critically acclaimed LP, Is This It. No special fx, no lasers, no spaceships, just rock & roll. I’d like to elaboraterate more but have way too much on my plate today, enjoy a break from the space age.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Novembre

Holy shit it’s November and I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is another year has nearly passed and you feel like you haven’t done crap with you life – lame. The good news is that Steph Lund has been kind enough to provide you with some new inspiring music to play as you make your resolutions so you don’t repeat the same mistakes yet again – fresh. That said I present you guys the latest version of the beloved monthly mixtape Le Miel du Mois By Steph Lund. Every month is my new favorite for totally different reasons and November is no exception.

Le Miel du Mois: Novembre

Yeah Yeah Yeahs = love. Heads Will Roll has been on a previous Le Miel du Mois, BUT, there’s no real rules to Le Miel du Mois except for consistency in awesomness, plus i’m not shy to repeat – in case you didn’t know that about me “and if you dont know now you knowwwwwww”

Happy November, happy fall, time to embrace the cold and get warmer via bigger headphones and larger boom boxes to shield you from the wind. Rock on.

*Breakout artist for Le Miel du Mois Novembre: Delorean. I am already in love with Delorean, even though theycurrently only have 4 songs out there, check out their EP, favorites include deli (on this mix) and seasun – original and the remix – both on their myspace page, here: http://www.myspace.com/deloreandanz
