when cameron was in egypt's land
Start your week off with a bang with this version of the classic "Louie, Louie" by Iggy Pop, from the Coffee & Cigarettes soundtrack (it plays over the end credits, btw). It seemed like a fun, simple & relatively carefree way to cure that case of the "mondays" that's lurking around the corner.
My obsession with all things Broken Social Scene and/or Emily Haines continues with this track, from 2000's mostly instrumental Anthems for the Could've Been Pills. For the uninitiated, KC Accidental is Broken Social Scene, and this track features Ms. Haines lending her vocal talent for the betterment of all mankind. It doesn't have the pop hooks of some of the material on You Forgot It In People, but it does feature BSS's dense production & should please you drone-pop fanatics out there.
weekend update w/o kevin nealonAfter the Franz Ferdinand no-ticket-having fiasco from last Friday, my weekend woefully regressed into Cameron Frye territory. Yes, yes...it was quite pathetic. But if I did nothing else this weekend (and I did very little), I am glad that I stumbled across a blog that I really liked, the Winnipeg-based Pop77. Blogger Chris features mp3's (including downloads from his weekly radio show, "The New Synthetics," which is currently spinning on my iTunes), along with other pop culture musings & random artistic wonderings. Seems like my kind of blog.
bonus MP3: If you haven't already heard, Austin TX's Spoon has posted two demos from their forthcoming album up at their website. These are must-hear IMO, much like those new demos from Jersey rocker Ted Leo that were put online a couple weeks ago...
MP3 Spoon - "I Summon You" (demo)
MP3 Spoon - "Sister Jack" (demo)
MP3 Ted Leo - "Me & Mia" (demo)
MP3 Ted Leo - "The Angel's Share" (demo)
MP3 Ted Leo - "Congressional Dubcision" (demo)
