All 9 minutes of this classic Velvets track. The music bares a strong resemblance to The Doors.

I can’t speak for anybody else, but I for one really love these neo-new wave bands/singers. Hannah Georgas is Canadian, it seems, and this song is pure bliss. I love how mellow and laid back it is.

It’s a shame this guy hasn’t made music in almost 20 years. Back in my AOL days (circa late 1994) I used to annoy the living hell out of people in chat rooms hyping up One Step Ahead of the Spider. Most people probably thought i was a paid A&R guy from the record label, […]

I wanted to post the title track to their latest ep (it’s 13 minutes of pure perfection), but YouTube didn’t have it, so I’ll post this single instead:

It’s cute, it’s funny, it’s catchy and it mocks an old hippie song. Sounds like a winner to me!

First we had Cults, now we have Churches. I’m not sure why indie pop bands of the 2010s are borrowing band names from the 80s and simply making them plural. Both Cults and Churches have female lead singers, so I’ll blame the women.

Makoto was made in Japan…  

I hope Merle writes his autobio before it’s too late. His life would be 1,000 times more interesting than the flash in the pan TV stars writing about their lives.

I guess this song sums up the “twee as fuck” ethos better than most others.  Her voice is really great and I love the horns.

I don’t really consider Taylor Swift to be country (and I doubt she does either after her last album), but she is probably the best pop singer around, and Red is one of this year’s best albums. And this sounds like classic U2 without Bono’s sanctimony. Can’t beat that.

Along with George Strait and Alan Jackson, Toby Keith is the best modern day country singer. Steve Earle doesn’t even come close.

I have no idea why that “explicit content” banner is at the beginning of the video. I guess it’s the split second shot of boobies? Pretty tame, especially in the internet age. Oh well, great song anyway. I love that guitar sound.

I think I hear something about “ponies in the wilderness of life” here. Good song.
