Lady Dandelion - Lonesome Boy

Really like this jazzy trip-hop sound. Great song. More please!

Sufjan Stevens & Gallant - Blue Bucket Of Gold

So... I'm gonna go ahead and say this is better than the original version.

Dude's vocal range is ridiculous.

Saturday, April 14, 2018

Ian Pooley - Followed

One of my favorite electronic producers. Genius in simplicity.

Friday, April 13, 2018

Ondatrópica - Hummingbird

It's Friday. Here's a little something to help you mix up that cocktail.

Thursday, April 12, 2018

G. Tom Mac - Cry Little Sister

The anthem from a near-legendary cult classic. This song still has weight. Here's another version that you might not have heard before. Can't top the original.

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Black Honey - Dig

So fresh they don't even have a Wikipedia page yet.

Monday, April 9, 2018

Judas Priest - Spectre

New album. 44 years after the first. It's never too late to rock out.

Sunday, April 8, 2018

Aurora - Teardrop

There's a lot of covers out there of this one, probably the most famous trip hop track in existence. I like this version. Skip to about 1 min in to avoid the banter.

Tuxedo - Do It

Need some funk in your Friday? Look no further. Pretty much any track from these funkin' maniacs will do. I dare you not to get your boogie on. I double-dare you.

Thursday, April 5, 2018

Green Day - Longview

This is actually the first time I've ever posted anything by these guys. Probably a reason, I pretty much stopped listening to them completely after Nimrod. Anyway this is still my favorite track of theirs. Enjoy in all its uncensored glory.

Skull Fist - Bad For Good

Best metal hair band still going? These cats are awesome live. Still got my shirt.

Sunday, April 1, 2018

Bicep - Glue

First day of April. Kick back and relax. You've earned it.

Friday, March 30, 2018

Phum Viphurit - Lover Boy

Alright let's bring it back to 2018. Just funky enough for this Friday afternoon.

Barenaked Ladies - One Week / If I Had $1000000

Right, it's hard to stay angry when these gents are back on stage together.

How 'bout an old school tour fellas?

Monday, March 26, 2018

Rollins Band - Liar

I was going to post this awesome live performance from '94 but then I thought, nah, this video is legendary. Happy Monday.

Sunday, March 25, 2018

Kraak & Smaak - Stumble

It's been a helluva weekend. Let's turn down the juice a little.

Friday, March 23, 2018

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Lusine - Slow Motion

Big fan of Jeff McIlwain's work. Just came across this live performance, it's brilliant. That's Trent Moorman doing the funky stuff on the drums.

Sunday, March 18, 2018

La Roux - In For The Kill

I'm ready for another album. Come on Elly, get it together.

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Martin Solveig - Jealousy

Before his tracks became unbearably obnoxious. Lee Fields on vocals.

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Friday, March 9, 2018

Warren G - Regulate

The Jammin' Remix featuring Michael McDonald. Shibbity dibbity doo.

Quality video mashup by DJ Eksel.

Ibeyi - Tiny Desk Concert

Didn't know who they were before. Now I know.

1. Oddudua
2. Deathless
3. Valé
4. Transmission / Michaelion

Seven Mary Three - My My

The great underachievers... American Standard was such a good record. So why didn't they kick on? Evolution of sound is natural, but they just seemed to lose their identity along the way. The studio version of this song might be the most underappreciated grunge track from the 90s.

Saturday, March 3, 2018

Arvo Party - Chevy Chase

It's Saturday. We need some hardcore disco beats. Complete with this sweet video edit from Equilibrium, a movie that could have been better than it was.

Focus - Hocus Pocus

The in and out cuts on this upload grind my gears. Performance is legendary.

Sunday, February 25, 2018

FM Hi Low - Human Enemy

This video doesn't really do justice to how good Fraser McDonald and friends are live, or how great this track is... so I'm posting the audio link below it too.


TAKE TWO
(studio cut)

Saturday, February 24, 2018

Green Velvet - Flash

This is actually the Channel X remix. Bumpin' house. It sounds almost nothing like the original, a legendary track that was among a few to welcome me into the wide world of electronic music. My personal favorite remix was this one by Danny Tenaglia.

Friday, February 23, 2018

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Minotaurs - Echoes

Apparently from Guelph, Ontario? Very cool, would like to see them live.

Black Pistol Fire - Speak Of The Devil

I like this loud business. Let's mix in some blues with that grunge.

Sunday, February 11, 2018

Saturday, February 10, 2018

Anderson Paak - Come Down

It's Saturday. That means it's time to get down. Shout outs to G-Load.

Friday, February 9, 2018

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats - NPR Tiny Desk Concert

High quality Friday afternoon sunshine sociable music. I could go for a pint.

1. I Need Never Get Old
2. Look It Here
3. I've Been Failing You
4. Mellow Out

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Young Fathers - In My View

New album on the way from these cats. Did you know they're from Scotland? This new track reminds me a bit of Massive Attack in the production.

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Kimbra - Human

I posted a song that apparently featured Kimbra in it the other day though I'm not super convinced. Haven't actually heard any new music from her in a while. New album apparently coming in April. Looking forward to it, always find her work interesting if not great.

Tuesday, February 6, 2018

Ravyn Lenae - Sticky

First song I've ever heard from this artist. Super phat.

Monday, February 5, 2018

Hey Rosetta! - I've Been Asleep For A Long, Long Time

This is supposed to be Metal Monday. Well let's be honest for a moment, there are no rules around here. Rules are for the birds. Please direct any complaints you might have to this brick wall.

I slept for about 13 hours last night. Straight. On the couch. TKO'd. No dinner. No Superbowl. No writing. Suffice to say I was tired. Sleep didn't really happen for me apart from a couple hours nap here for there from about Thursday. Starting to think I have too much on the go.

Today is catch-up day. El Bloggo is now good to go. Sort of. Still have a few Best Of's to get to further down the road.

In the meantime Tim Baker & Co. are bringing me back to life. Hope they're enjoying whatever it is they've been up to since December. Probably a lot of not much.

B00ty - Loosen Up

Saturday. Dance. Chunes. I dare you not to boogie.

Friday, February 2, 2018

Thursday, February 1, 2018

Gowan - Strange Animal

Throwback Thursday.

I wanted to post the original 1985 video, alas I couldn't embed it so....

2006 live piano version in the Glenn Gould Theatre it is.


P.S. it's February.

Matt Wells - You Walk Behind

I didn't have an appropriately heavy track cued up for Metal Monday, so here's a throwback acoustic rendition of a dope track I posted once upon a time.

Sunday, January 28, 2018

Zoot Woman - Ordinary Face

I was gonna post the music video for this track, but then found this acoustic version. There's a bunch of them on their channel.

Saturday, January 27, 2018

Boney M - Gotta Go Home

It's Saturday. That means it's time for dancin'. Let's do it disco. If you think you might have heard that hook in another song more recently, you're gat dang right.

Friday, January 26, 2018

Shogun - Vulcan

Wooooo this Scotsman spittin' fiya! Warning, PG-13 language.

Thursday, January 25, 2018

Chousand - Wizard Wig

What happened to these guys? This song was simple but catchy.

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Fader Creep - Reality Hits You Hard Bro

Far and away the best 'remix' of George Lindell's ridiculous recollection of the incident in Arizona. Always enjoyed Fader Creep's videos, a bit dark and well constructed.

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

Monday, January 22, 2018

The Distillers - Drain The Blood

If we're gonna post a cover, might as well post the originals. Had almost forgotten about them. Are they metal enough? I'm gonna say they qualify.

Sunday, January 21, 2018

Lauren Wakefield - Bittersweet

Came across this talented artist completely by surprise. The first video was this cover song which was pretty decent. This is an original. Great voice.

Saturday, January 20, 2018

Louis La Roche - All I Had

What is it about stage names? How much does the headline influence the song's impact? Is it merely for purposes of attraction? Would this track be any less funky if it was released by Brett Ewels?

I don't know the answers to these, as they seem by and large subjective. Gotta admit though, if Louis La Roche had a sound this would be it.

Thursday, January 18, 2018

The Cranberries - Ode To My Family

Was just a few weeks ago that I posted their biggest song. Suppose this could have been posted yesterday, but the other track was already queued up when I heard the news. A terrible shame. Rest easy Dolores.

Monday, January 15, 2018

Nigel Hall Band - Everybody Wants To Rule The World

It's too bad there isn't a soundboard recording of this somewhere. At least none that I know of... but there is another video of this exact performance. Maybe someone could do some doctoring? Really enjoy this arrangement of a timeless classic.


Sunday, January 14, 2018

Dreamcar - Kill For Candy

The weekend isn't over yet. Let's keep the tempo high. These guys are a 'super-group' made up of members from No Doubt and AFI.

Saturday, January 13, 2018

Azari & III - Manic

It's Saturday, and you know what that means. Time for funky beats.

Friday, January 12, 2018

Redman - Da Goodness

Such a great track, butchered by censorship. Somebody rip the proper audio and mix it with the video because this is just horrific.

Monday, January 8, 2018

Heilung - Krigsgaldr

Metal Monday. Viking opera? From Denmark.


Watch the whole LIFA concert here.

Sunday, January 7, 2018

BRNS - Many Chances

Had to post this for the video alone. Turns out I like the song too.

Washed Out - Burn Out Blues

It's the first Thursday of 2018. Are we allowed to feel burned out yet?

Wednesday, January 3, 2018

Barenaked Ladies - Break Your Heart

My favorite song from a band that died unceremoniously in 2009. I debated posting this fairly recent version by Steven Page but then thought it would be more appropriate to post the full band in their heyday.
