  • “Fever Dreaming” – No Age
    It has been just over two years since the L.A. duo No Age graced us with a new record. Their sophomore Sub Pop release  Everything in Between was very well-received and chock-full of jam-worthy tunes. “Fever Dreaming” is personal favorite of mine from not only this album but the band’s entire catalog. The intensity of “Fever Dreaming” is captured in the rapid-fire delivery of Dean Spunt’s vocals and reinforced with the screeching fuzz of Randy Randall’s riffs. An overall great tune whether you’re getting amped for the weekend or generally attempting to wreak havoc.
  • “Ain’t Gonna Stop” – Natural Child
    Sounds like Rolling Stones and they rock like their fellow Nashville counterparts/buds (see: JEFF The Brotherhood, Heavy Cream, Diarrhea Planet, Pujol). Check’em out, kiddies.
    PS – NSFW — their album cover is a pic of a girl’s bum.
  • “See No Evil” – Television
    A Black Cat jukebox staple and pretty much one of my favorite albums of all time. Yeah, I said it.


  • “Sleeping Children are Still Flying” – Blue Sky Black Death
    This is the kind of song pasted over a takeoff montage in a 1980s-style film. And on this day of all days of the week, Friday, we’re all taking off to fly to our weekends. Figuratively, of course. Just listen to the damned song.
  • “Like Spinning Plates” –  cover by Christopher O’Riley
    Once this heats up it sounds like, as one commenter noted, this man has three hands rather than two. The bare-bones, intentionally messy style brings a different sort of gravity to this classic.
  • “Lunacy” by Swans
    This week has been the kind of week where you need a little “In taberna quando sumus” music in your playlist.


  • “Clique” by Kanye West and the G.O.O.D Crew
    Because I’ve got this sick YouTube link, I’m white and you know white people get money, don’t spend it.
  • “Atlantic City” – cover by The Hold Steady
    Because requiescat in pace.
  • “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst” by Kendrick Lamar
    Because I follow trends.


  • “I Knew You Were Trouble” – Taylor Swift
    RED is far better then it has to be. It is not only a carrier highpoint for Swift but one of the best records of the year. Also the should be single “I Knew You Were Trouble” or T-Swift’s dustup song is one of the best things she has ever done. I can’t get it out of my head.
  • “Turn Me Up” – Carly Rae Jespen
    I’m still amazed no one is listening to Kiss. It is a perfect pop record and “Turn Me Up” is one of the best Kylie Minogue songs Kylie never got to sing.
  • “Adrenochrome” – Emeralds
    Emeralds are by far one of the best experimental groups out there. Their soon to be released album Just to Feel Anything (out November 5th on Editions Mego) is not to be missed.
