What the hell? Is it time for another musical High 5? I hate these things. Oh well, nothing to do but dive into it. Half of the songs that I love are pretty much 1 hit wonders. While these bands may have other good songs, they really only had one hit. So please spare me the defensive arguments if I touch a nerve. I understand, I too love the Sundays, Letters to Cleo, Better than Ezra, Cake, Chumbawumba, The Verve, Harvey Danger, The Toadies, Deep Blue Something, Fine Young Cannibals, Space Hog, and so on … ok, maybe not so much on the Chumbawuba. So without further adieu, may favorite 1 Hit Wonders.
Oh glory glory, glory unto this.
Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday!, the album drops.
This video has melted my mind. It has forced me to evolved, and for that I am better off. I know it is probably like tots old for the 4chan and tumblr wizards out there, but I’m just getting my first taste. It is the wonder.
I’m only posting about El-P’s song “The Full Retard” to rub up on the entire album that it’s from, Cancer4Cure. Woah baby. I’ve always been a fan of El-P’s production credits on shiz for heroes of mine like Aesop Rock, but with this album he has vaulted directly into my soul. Don’t let the obvious choice for single choose you, the album has some spine to it. It’s a depressingly dystopian middle finger to the sprawling police state, drug usage, and does all this while asking asking and then answering the question, “What’s worth dying for?”
I’m in love.
‘Cause the new song dropped and we’re hitting the show tonight.
I’m pretty fucking stoked for Ex Lives, the upcoming album by Every Time I Die. They’ve dropped a new video for the song Revival Mode and while I wholeheartedly think its a (departing from their regular swag) jam, the video is creepy enough to entertain me regardless.
Hit the jump to check it out.
New OFWGKTA in the house! As ever, I’m torn. Their genuine insanity, ingenuity, and do-it-yourself monstrosities blow me away. At the same time, they’re so overtly (even if they’re the worst thing of all, ‘only kidding’) sexist and homophobic that I have to cringe through my grins.
Hit the jump to check out their new video. It’s fucking insane.
