Hi. Here is some new music:
Keane – Stop for a Minute
Thanks to Andy for providing me with this one, easily my favorite song of the moment. Video is a little weird first time watching it, but for some reason the second time I threw it on I liked it a lot more. The song however, is awesome right from the first go.
Hoodie Allen – January Jones
More white people rapping! Huzzah!
The Wombats – Tokyo (Grum Remix)
The regular song is pretty good but I like the beat of this one better, make sure to skip ahead from the straight fist pumping start, the rest isn’t nearly as head pounding.
Bill Withers – Lovely Day
A little old school chill out funky time.
Due to getting in at 1am tonight, heading out at 7am for the Hampton’s and Biggie’s wedding tomorrow, then London right after that, this post will only contain one, very new, very awesome, song. Courtesy of Wonn, thanks for keeping me hip.
OK Go – White Knuckles
This is a pretty good song by OK Go, but the video has tons of dogs in it, so it rules. Enjoy.
I will actually probably post this on Friday, but I’m stuck in an airport right now.. ironically (I think?) not because of hurricane Earl II (<-- the second?) but because of a "mechanical issue" which is making me miss my connecting flight (<--favorite thing evar!) (<-- next to parens right now). Anyway, here it is, the newest hottest beats y'all have been looking for. Play them at your hurricane parties this weekend.
iTunes Version of the Bed Intruder Song
Okay, not really new, but definitely awesome. Thanks to Cantu for this link. Hide yo’ daughtas! Hide yo’ wives! Errbody gettin’ raped up in here!
Miami Horror – Holidays
Hello funky disco. Man I couldn’t be happier that disco/funk is making a pseudo-resurgence in the form of these type of songs. If you can listen to this and not be in a good mood / want to dance / drink / party / have an awesome time then you are a soulless individual who probably hates puppies and happiness.
Bruno Mars ft. Cee Lo Green & B.o.B. – Otherside
All star cast produces a song you’d expect from the three of them working together.
Tokyo Police Club – Wait Up
Okay I meant to post this one approximately a month ago, because it just may be one of the best music videos I’ve ever seen. I won’t spoil it, but, if you like dogs as much as I like commas in this paragraph, you will love this video. The reason they used the dogs in this video is because 100% of the proceeds for the purchase of the songs/videos go to the ASPCA (prevention of cruelty to animals). Good band, great song, better video, enjoy:
Mike Posner – Evil Woman (sort of cover, definitely more than sort of awesome)
The Roots – Right On (ft. Joanna Newsome)
Two Door Cinema Club – Undercover Martyn
Another one that has been out forever, but posting this in honor of the fact they will be playing in conjunction with Phoenix at Agganis this fall, tickets on sale Saturday. You may also remember them from my last post with a slightly newer song of theirs, Something Good Can Work.
Natasha Bedingfield – Touch
Doesn’t quite grab and hold your ears hostage as much so as her original absolute masculinity killing song, Unwritten, but still pretty solid and out just in time for the end of summer.
La Roux – Bulletproof
This was definitely a hit last year overseas but seems to be making its way into an increasingly “techno” accepting American music scene. Anyway, sure most of you have heard it by now either way, but if not, welcome to 2009 in all its Euro-filled glory with this video.
That is all for this Friday, go forth with your new (or old) music and enjoy the weekend!
Since people are always asking me for good new music, I’ve decided to occasionally add a few songs here that are awesome. I don’t want to turn this into a music blog, or make any promises I’ll regularly (like weekly) add songs, but I’ll shoot for every Friday since that is when I usually comb the tubes for new hot beatz.
So without further ado, I bring you this Friday’s list of awesome, potentially not new but still great, tunes that you’ve probably never heard:
LCD Soundsystem & Franz Ferdinand – All My Friends – this version is way better than the non-Franz one
RL Burnside – Let My Baby Ride (let it go for a minute when it starts to rock)
Vampire Weekend – Everywhere (Fleetwood Mac cover) – probably best cover song ever, by anyone. no room for debate so don’t even bother.
Lazee ft. Neverstore – Hold On – kind of old now, but great song, better video.
A warning from the Jump Smokers:
Spoiler alert: It is every night. Never the less, this article does an excellent job breaking down the order of the which nights are better than others.
“It’s Friday. A glorious weekend of drinking awaits you. You can hardly wait. It’s not five yet, but you yearn to break free of work NOW and drench yourself head to toe in pure Thunderbird.
Yesterday, I noted that Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, and I recklessly declared Saturday the drunkenest day of the week. Ah, but is that always necessarily true? Let’s start this exercise by stating flatly that the best day of the week to get drunk is, of course, ALL OF THEM. There’s no wrong night to get drunk! That’s the beauty of alcoholism! But, for shits and giggles, let’s rank the nights of the week for drinking purposes anyway.”
