Gorillaz – Plastic Beach

If you’ve possibly managed to have not heard of the new Gorillaz album, you should know that it officially releases on Wednesday (March 17th), though legitimate streaming previews have been available online for a couple of weeks now. With summer fast approaching, you don’t want to be caught without a copy of this in your car. Go order it from amazon.com right now.

Bonobo – Black Sands

Strike up the fireplace and vacuum the bear skin rug, because Bonobo puts out.. some of the sexiest music you’ll ever hear.

Fifteen Randoms

I saw one of those classic posts on the book of faces today: put your iPod on shuffle and list the first fifteen songs that play. Talk about presumptuous. I know they have a fairly large market share, but I’m still holding out on Apple products. More to the point, I was curious to see what would turn up if I shuffled the current musical contents of my hard drive and decided I should post the results here since I update so infrequently. I think the results are pretty indicative of my music listening habits: all over the place.

  • Stardeath and White Dwarf – Smoking Pot Makes Me Not Want to Kill Myself
  • St. Vincent – Black Rainbow
  • Battles – Race: In
  • Pink Mountaintops – Outside Love
  • Fabulous Diamonds – LP4
  • Iron & Wine – Homeward These Shoes
  • George Williams Aingo – Akiko Nu Bonto
  • Kings of Leon – Notion
  • Karl Blau – 2 Becomes 1
  • Dananananaykroyd – Infinity Milk
  • Murs – Me and This Jawn
  • Wild Beasts – Woeboegone Wanderers
  • Ladytron – Another Breakfast with You
  • Kings of Convenience – The Build-Up
  • Paul Desmond – Embarcadero (alternate take)

Sexton – plus phrough live!

Watch this video full screen with your volume way up. This is a promo video Duane put together for the art show we’ll be hosting this Friday at LFP.

If that’s not awesome enough, and I know it is, I will be playing some wicked bass riffs with some friends. We’ll be winging it. We’re not polished. We’re not pretty. But we’re not afraid. Things kick off at 7. Don’t be fashionably late or you’ll miss something.
