The Walkmen's "Heaven"

Below is the new video from The Walkmen for the title track of their new album Heaven, which came out last week. The song basically sounds like every other Walkmen song. Which means it sounds fantastic. I got to see them live in the winter of 2010. A real treat, don’t miss them if you [Read More...]

"Sorry OK Yes" Reminds Me of the Black Keys

Check out the catchy crunchy electric guitars on this song “So” by the band Sorry OK Yes. Especially give this a listen if you love the old school Black Keys (as I do). That’s the basic vibe here. Their stuff can be purchased here, though I don’t see anything for this song there. I haven’t [Read More...]

Menomena's "Evil Bee" (Camels With Hammers Blogathon Insomniac Theater)

One of my favorite, relatively unknown bands is Menomena. Here’s an awesome video for their song “Evil Bee”: Your Thoughts? [Read more...]

Tegan and Sara in "Body Work" and "Carpool Confessional"

The song is credited as primarily Morgan Page’s but all the singing is Tegan and Sara so mediocre lyrics aside, I’ll consider this one a Tegan and Sara song. It’s great to see and hear them again: AND they’re recording their new album finally! And they’re filming all their trips to and from the studio [Read More...]

Shelley Segal on Her Religious Producer and Pseudonymous Band Members For Her Atheist Album

Kylie recently interviewed Shelley Segal who wrote An Atheist Album (which I very much liked and recommended you pick up). Particularly notable revelations were that the album’s producer was religious and that the band members, fearing for their careers in America, opted not to have their names listed in the credits of the album rather than [Read More...]

St. Vincent's "Cheerleader"

A new video from the incomparable St. Vincent: This is the closest to anthemic that Annie Clark ever gets and that makes it too relatively straightforward for her. What is here is good if there were something else, less direct also going on. The song feels half done, more like a traditional pop song than [Read More...]

More Encouragement of the Unabashed Desire for Self-Expression, Love, and Fame

Having earlier today in my all day blogathon celebrated and analyzed Kermit the Frog’s unapologetic fame seeking, I thought it would be fitting to post one of my very favorite songs, as it is on the same theme and performed by artists with whom I generally identify much like I identify with Kermit: Your Thoughts? [Read more...]

Tegan and Sara Pose With Black Eyes—Is It Wise?

I love Tegan and Sara immensely. I have tens of thousands of songs on my i-pod, and yet will play their songs on repeat for whole days. Sometimes I will play a single one of their songs on repeat for a half hour straight. I go so far as to consider The Con my single [Read More...]

Shelley Segal's "An Atheist Album" Is Very Good

Remember this catchy, defiantly anti-religious song we brought to your attention in October? Well now Shelley Segal’s An Atheist Album is available for downlaod and I have taken a listen to it and I am extremely pleased with it and can totally recommend it if you like the video above at all. I am always [Read More...]
