King Khan

August 14, 2017


King Khan is all set to release his first solo album, Murder Burgers (due October 13).  The first single, which is just down below, sounds like … well, it sounds like a King Khan track.  Who needs a surprise today anyhow?  It’s Monday.  Just hit play and turn it up.  Enjoy.

Top 50 Songs Of 2016: Part 4

December 1, 2016


And the list continues on.  Enjoy.

Part 1 is HERE.
Part 2 is HERE.
Part 3 is HERE.

PS – I got a ton of take down notices, so you’ll have to listen via Spotify.

20)  :Thee Oh Seees – Plastic Plant:  Out of all the music that Thee Oh Sees released in 2016 (two albums worth, to be exact), this track is my favorite.  Total jam.

19)  :King Khan – Never Hold On:  The normally noisy King Khan contributed this gem to the soundtrack for The Invaders.  He should do more slow burners.

18)  :Hazel English – Make It Better:  Here’s one that I’ve been glued to since I first heart it.  There’s just something hypnotic about Hazel English.

17)  :Chook Race – Sometimes:  If you’re all about jangly pop, then this one from Chook Race is a must-listen for you.

16)  :Tangerine – Sunset:  This infectious pop tune from Tangerine is totally something that more people should have been yammering about in 2016.

15)  :Terry Malts – Used To Be:  I’ve jammed the hell out of this Terry Malts song.  Those guys sure know how to write a hook.

14)  :Lucy Dacus – I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore:  I believe this one from Lucy Dacus was actually put out in late 2015, but I didn’t catch it until the re-release this year.  So it counts!  Anyhow, it’s a stellar track that drips with sincerity.

13)  :Car Seat Headrest – Does It Feel Good (To Say Goodbye):  This song by Car Seat Headrest is from the soundtrack for a short film called Loudini.  It makes me want so sit on a porch somewhere with a bottle of whiskey.

12)  :Nothing – ACD (Abscessive Compulsive Disorder):  If you still need to get in some quality shoegazing before 2016 fully comes to a close, I highly recommend doing it with this Nothing song blasting in your headphones.

11)  :Fujiya And Miyagi – Serotonin Rushes:  You’re dead if you can listen to this Fujiya And Miyagi track and not want to dance or at least smile.

Quickdraw: The Mystery Lights, Mercury Girls, King Khan, Still Parade, Har Mar Superstar

April 18, 2016


Music!  Enjoy.

:The Mystery Lights – Follow Me Home:  The mighty folks over at Daptone have created a rock imprint, WICK, and The Mystery Lights’ debut will be its first release.  I’m really digging this slinky single.  The band’s self titled album is due out June 24.

:Mercury Girls – Ariana:  Mercury Girls are pretty new (they just got going in 2015), but they already have a sound that’s rather honed.  Hit play immediately if you love indie pop.  The Ariana single is due out May 20 via Slumberland.

:King Khan – Never Hold On:  King Khan recently crafted the soundtrack for a film called The Invaders, and that’s where this soul-enthused slow burner can be found.  I love it.  The Never Hold On single is available now via Bandcamp.

:Still Parade – Chamber:  Here’s a new one from Still Parade (aka Niklas Kramer).  It’s a sparkly effort that’s very warm and inviting, and you should expect it to leave you feeling excited about his upcoming LP.  Concrete Vision is due out June 3 via Heist Or Hit.

:Har Mar Superstar – How Did I Get Through the Day:  Aside from this being a very appropriately titled track for a Monday, it’s also a lo-fi retro gem that features Har Mar Superstar (aka Sean Tillmann) crooning his little heart out.  Best Summer Ever is available now through Cult Records.
