your parents will hate it
Saw The Incredibles last nite, which was fantastic. Pixar done did it again!
This track came up on the random shuffle on my iTunes this morning, and it just felt like the perfect song for a Friday. Lyrically it might not have much significance for the weekend (I'm not looking forward to being particularly superficial tomorrow), but it's got the right energy going for it, being all rocking & anthemic & all. From Costello's 2002 album, When I Was Cruel.
But what song to pair up with the previous one? This Sleater-Kinney tune was the first song that popped in my head, so I'm going with it, trying to get this weekend off to an upbeat start. The Portland OR punk trio recently signed to Sub Pop, and I cannot wait for their next album, which they are currently recording in NYC & hope to release in "late spring/early summer 2005." This track is from the gals' 2000 LP, All Hands on the Bad One.
bonus MP3 Incredibad - "Ka-Blamo! (Didier Red Remix)"
Incredibad is the musical not-so-secret identity of The Lonely Island, who are three funny dudes (as well as fellow NYU alum, or at least some of them are). They've currently got the hit show The 'Bu going strong over at Channel 101, and according to their TLI blog, they're being spotted all over Hollywood. This is an older Incredibad track (albeit a remix), featuring the dudes attempting to ape the Beastie Boys while injecting a new cool catchphrase into the American lexicon. And hey, there's also a video!
