blog 2009/09/18 - CPI's MP3 blog gets abridged and funky; PMS playlists
You know what? I'm all grumpy and moody today.
I also realize that delaying posting a blog this week will just make me feel worse, so here we go with another post, except this time I am just going to write one sentence for each entry.
Copeland - Chin Up: I just love the line "you're breaking your neck to keep your chin up".
Esser - I Love You: Another line I think is great: "Love is no excuse for bad art".
Fly.Union - When We: A super sweet soul loop brings this track together.
In-Flight Safety - Torches: Sometimes I just have nothing to say and let the music rock out around me.
MC Chris - DBS4: DRINKING BLUNTS AND SMOKING 40S I WON'T TALK ABOUT SHIT GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY FACE!!!!!
Mother Mother - Wrecking Ball: If this band was to get any more cheery-happy-pop they'd come out with sequined outfits and have synchronised guitar dances on stage.
P.O.S. - P.O.S Is Ruining My Life: Like most semi-intelligent beings I try and avoid rock-rap crossovers with a passion, unless unless unless...
Paola Prestini - Inngerutit: Prestini's 2008 album Body Maps on John Zorn's Tzadik label goes down as one of the great contemporary classical accomplishments of 2008; amazing.
Peaches - I Feel Cream: I was suprised to find as many good songs on the 2009 album I Feel Cream, but Nisker has brought out some heavy-hitting friends to raise the bar, even if it is often more of the same.
Peaches - Talk To Me: Case and point, Beth fucking Ditto!
Polly Scattergood - Please Don't Touch (The Golden Filter Pop Mix): This comes off as a darker and more seductive take on La Roux and other 80s revivalist pop reworks on the market, and surpasses many of them by far.
Promise ft Drake - In My City: Oh hell yes.
Soft Circle - Light Bright: From a split 12" with stoner hcicks The High Places, this is the way I always wanted drugged-up stoner trance jams to sound like.
The Blueflowers - Watercolor Ghost Town: Sexy indie folkpop yes.
The Dodos - Acorn Factory: I regretably have to admit that the new Dodos album "Time To Die" does not live up to the staggeringly high expectations we placed on it, but that is truly our fault.
The Dodos - Troll Nacht: The ramshackle folk bliss is here, but oh how I wish I could love it all as much as I love these two tracks
The Shoes - Keep That Control ft Scream Club (Yuksek Lost Control Remix): Finally, Scream Club get it right and outsource the beatworking and only focus on being sassypants.
White Lies - Death: In a perfect world, the FM rock stations would play people like this.
Windmill - Plastic Pre Flight Seats: Modest Mouse rock riffing with many more women involved.
