Yeah Yeah Yeahs- Show your bones


Grouper- Dragging a Dead Deer up a Hill

Grouper was really good live. I saw her open for Animal Collective, and I thought she was better. Animal collective had a great performance as well, they played a variety of songs from numerous albums and had a lot of energy on stage. If you listen to more then just their last album, you should go see them. and definitely see Grouper.

Kap Bambino- Zero Life Night Vision

Born in October 2001 in Bordeaux, France along with their own label WWILKO, Kap Bambino (Orion Bouvier and Caroline Martial) play an effective and energetic contemporary electronic music. Based on incisive rhythms, intoxicating riffs and dyslexic lyrics, this music defies classification. Out of control, it is sometimes pop and melancholic, sometimes skinned-raw, but always aggressive. They try to exist in the fringe of the French musical movement. -

new modest mouse single

i was really excited to find out of Modest Mouse's new single,  "satellite skin". They had previously told he public after their last album that they were going to go back to analogue instruments and go back to their older styles. I was very disappointed in their new single, i must say. I would not recommend getting it. The instruments are analogue and do sound a lot better then their previous album, but the vocals are not good and it is not what your expecting from a Modest Mouse song. It turns to rather a country-esque vibe towards the middle of the song. I would just get "the fruit that ate itself" instead.

Bad Brains- Bad Brains

if you're into good punk music, you're into bad brains.

The Blow-Paper Television

Paper Television is a wickedly generous and clever record of not-quite love songs and elaborately metaphored stabs at the rituals of simple human communication. At the show, as on the record, love is compared to gold, consumer goods, god, even the Louvre. Getting busy is a business negotiation or a threesome with a guy and the greater universe. -pitchfork

Neutral Milk Hotel - Beauty (1992)

Beauty is a self-recorded demo tape by Neutral Milk Hotel. It was originally recorded on cassette and distributed among other Elephant 6 musicians. i find this ep stunning in its early 90's, low-fi melodies. everyone definitely should get this.

polaroids not dead, its taking a nap

Polaroid is transforming itself from an analog Instant Film Production Company to a global Consumer Electronics and Digital Imaging company. Production of analog Instant Film stopped in June 2008, closing the factories in Mexico (Instant Packfilm production) and the Netherlands (Instant Integral production). Impossible b.v. has been founded with the concrete aim to re-invent and re-start production of analog INTEGRAL FILM for vintage Polaroid cameras. Coming hopefully in 2010.

His real name is Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 1st Marquis of Púbol. thats badass.

Dalí employed extensive symbolism in his work. For instance, the hallmark "soft watches" that first appear in The Persistence of Memory suggest Einstein's theory that time is relative and not fixed. The idea for clocks functioning symbolically in this way came to Dalí when he was staring at a runny piece of Camembert cheese  on a hot day in August.

The elephant is also a recurring image in Dalí's works. It first appeared in his 1944 work Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening. The elephants, inspired by Gian Lorenzo Bernini's sculpture base in Rome of an elephant carrying an ancient obelisk, are portrayed "with long, multijointed, almost invisible legs of desire" along with obelisks on their backs. Coupled with the image of their brittle legs, these encumbrances, noted for their phallic overtones, create a sense of phantom reality. "The elephant is a distortion in space," one analysis explains, "its spindly legs contrasting the idea of weightlessness with structure." "I am painting pictures which make me die for joy, I am creating with an absolute naturalness, without the slightest aesthetic concern, I am making things that inspire me with a profound emotion and I am trying to paint them honestly." —Salvador Dalí

more like the best music video ever

who will cut our hair when we're gone?

The Unicorns (2003)

This is one of my favorite albums i own. They only made two full length albums before they broke up. The Unicorns are a terrific mixture of simple complexities. That doesn't really make sense but if you listen to their music i think you would understand what i'm talking about.

you should probably check this site out.

Blank Dogs- On Two Sides (2008)

Blank Dogs are actually singular: It's the insanely prolific one-man Brooklyn-based band of Mr. Blank Dog. We don't know too much about the biography of the guy behind the bedroom new-wave pop/punk and he's usually covering his face with masks or bedspreads, but that's fine. I saw him in Olympia, Washington. He played with a couple of other people. They were way good live.

Diva and Lola Dompe are two sisters from Los Angeles.
In 2004 they started a band called "BLACKBLACK" with Lola's boyfriend Alex Greenwald from Phantom Planet, who performs as his alter-ego "Clark Schädelkopf" in the context of the band. Schädelkopf means "skullhead" in German. The Dompe sisters are both daughters of Bauhaus drummer Kevin Haskins. this side project offers up an indie rock sensibility with an extremely energetic backdrop of experimental noise.

download their album here.

i keep it real, number one on the food chain.

Deerhoof - Reveille (2002)

my favorite songs on this album are three, eight and ten. the whole album is good though.


The books-Thought for food (2002)

Every once in a while a record like this one appears out of the ether without clear reference points. Web details on The Books are sketchy, but I have ascertained that they're a duo consisting of guitarist Nick Zammuto, who lives in North Carolina and has released some solo material under his surname, and cellist Paul de Jong, who lives in New York and has composed for dance, theater and film. After that, the pool of Books information dries up fast. The music is similarly unknowable, in the sense that it's difficult to classify. Musicians famously hate to be 'put into a box'; well, if more bands sounded quite as original as The Books, the practice would likely cease. If this record is the product of any sort of 'scene,' it's not one I've heard of. Thought for Food is going to sit comfortably in my collection in its own little category, a small world unto itself. - Pitchfork

Modest Mouse-sad sappy sucker

Modest Mouse's Sad Sappy Sucker is actually composed of the band's first recordings when they were 14 and 15, some of which remained unreleased until 2001. Several songs were recorded at Olympia, Washington's Dub Narcotic Studios in 1994. The record was released by K Records on April 242001, available in both Compact Disc and vinyl LP.
