Belong review - or, why to never buy an album
So I just had to buy the new Pains of Being Pure at heart album. Cause the song “belong” was so good. But the album Belong is not that great. 3/4 of it are boring songs that sound all crappy and like really bad songs. The lyrics are ok sometimes, but often the music is all cheesy. Pitchfork hasn’t done a review so I will give it a score… So my formatting got a...
Even more thoughts on the new Pains of being pure...
So actually I realized that the new pains of being pure at heart song sounds like “Together” by Suede. That and that Ride song. Don’t believe me? Fucking listen to it.. Or maybe I’m just senile. It’s probably senility. Oh and seued sure were coopl back then. oh well! we all get old now and then.
More thoughts on the new Pains of being pure at...
Ok, I just realized that the new Pains of being pure at heart (Pains…) song “belong” is sort like “Vapor trails” by RIDE. But Pains… made it a lot better. They took the song and put big big alt rock 1990s alt rock guitars on it so that it’s great. It’s like how Pains… took the that old Cure song and made it much better and more 2000s...
Good new songs
Puro Instinct - “Lost at sea” I like this song cause it sounds like it’s from the 1980s. Pains of being pure at heart - “Belong” I like this song cause it sounds like the 1990s. Oh it’s finally coming back!
blood orange is ok, but is lightspeed champion...
So Lightspeed Champion had the most disappointing album in 2010. Yeah it was fucking terrible. And it was 2010, trust me. But I heard this Blood Orange song. It’s alright by me! Blood Orange == Sumpthin Blvd… MP3
Songs for a Foot Locker commercial -- the best rap...
In light of the current trend of white/indie webpages (pitchfork/gorrilla vs bear) saying rap music is good, I too will make a list with the best rap songs of 2010. 1. DJ Felli Fel/36 Mafia/Lil Jon — “I wanna get drunk” Who can’t relate to this one? This one will help you get through your day at work. 2. Hyperizers — “Don’t...
Songs for a Target commercial -- 2010!!!
These are the best songs of 2010. In other words, these a songs for a Target commercial — 2010!!! 1 Forever and Ever Amen The Drums So was this in a VW commercial? So I guess they have to win this year. They are on a major label. But that’s ok, cause their album was so good. I only have the patience for one album a year, thankfully there was a good one...
Holy crap, toro y moi actually made a good song!!!
It’s a world miracle!!! After all these years, TORO Y MOI finally wrote his first good song. I could not believe it when it actually happened. But oh my, this song is very good. Oh and what the fuck is up with the new hypemachine format. It is fucking retarded. TORO Y MOI — STILL SOUND
Boy Least Likely To - Christmas Isn't Christmas
This new Christmas song is good. I like it! I think this band just writes songs in the hopes of getting it into a movie or tv commercial. They have been very successful so far. I’d like to see this one in something, as long as that annoying little girl from Juno isn’t in it. Or Christina Ricci. She’s really annoying too. Merry Christmas!!! Boy Least Likely To - Christmas...
It's Christmas times!!!
BLUR the wassailing song…
The Drums in a volkswagon commercial
That Drums song “let’s go surfing” is in these volkswagon commercial. That’s ok, cos the Drums just want to make some dough and that’s ok cause their songs are good I guess.
WU LYF -- Big in FRANCE????
So I noticed that ‘a lot’ of my visitors were from UK. Manchester to be true. Are they Wu lyf? Well, so I need some new wu lyf material. So it turns out that wu-lyf are big in france. There is a fest in france called les inrockupibles magazine fest. The organizer really, really likes wu-lyf. Don’t believe me??? Read this below… - Any regrets, groups that you could...
Songs on Elbo.ws hot chart are fucking bad.
A gimmick i saw on another blog was to review the songs on the Elbo.ws hot chart. I listened to the first two. Man, were they fucking awful. They were like catchy, but the songs were really fucking stupid. 1 Generationals - Trust —- This band is called the ‘generationals’. That is bad obviously. I think they are stupid foreigners so they don’t know no better. And...
Cover of Twin Peaks Theme is very good
I like this song. It reminds me of the original but is in a different way. THere’s another cover of this song floating around by some other band, but it’s pretty sucky. This one’s good though: MP3: Girls Names — Falling (Twin Peaks Theme)
New GIRLS song "Heartbreaker" is so good
This new GIRLS song is very good. Or at least I like it so much. It takes me back to the very soothing 90s. I also like how lead singer wears a Suede shirt. Maybe that’s why I think 90s. I like the 90s. Girls — “Heartbreaker”
songs in commercials ?!!?! 2007 is back yo.
Has anyone noticed that Los Campesinos is a Budwiser commerical now?! It was their one of two good songs from their first album. I remember that the comeback song for their second album was freaking weird. It was about how the dude’s anorexic girlfriend didn’t eat enough food. I remember reading a few years back that bands get $200,000 to 500,000 for a song being a in a...
Deerhunter are terrible!!!!!!!!
Has anyone noticed that Deerhunter are fucking awful!?!?! So I read that pitcfork.com gave their terrible albume a 10/10. Then I looked up deerhunter and that dude is fucking scarey looking. then I remembered that don’t the pitchfork guy get homo with the physical deformatity atlas sound? maybe he’s really into physically deformed ugos. Corruption of that sort is really stomach...
WU LYF - the great English hope
So the other day (August?) NME released the best 50 new bands ever list. Unfortunately, only one British group was able to crack the list… And it’s WU LYF! (Although a lot of these other bands I’ve never heard of, so maybe that means they are in fact British). WU LYF and their two pretty good songs are the last hope for England. How depressing. You can download these two...
what's up with Wonka exceptionals
So I looked up on the internet to see if anyone had eaten a Wonka Exceptionals bar. Cos they keep advertising every freaking night. Who is buying these bars???! Well, the online reviews all say they are just terrible and expensive. Go figure. I tried to find one for myself at CVS but they didn’t have any. And then more internet research sez that they had a big gala event with a red...
wu luf - more comments myspace
http://theirbatedbreath.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/vagina-wolf-world-unite-lucifer-youth-foundation-nic-cave.mp3 WU LYF - NIC CAVE MP3 So apparently google analytics says that when I dis WU LYF, people visit my blog. Ok then, I will make more fake nme covers and such. So, yeah, this is their other good song. Hopefully they write another good song soon or else I’m out of ideas.
WU LYF - overrated? or just pointless?
http://gvsbchris.com/HEAVY%20POP.mp3 WU LYF - Heavy Pop mp3 So Gorilla vs Bear had a WU LYF song on it a couple months ago. That seems like it would be good and exciting and all, but I don’t think that this band really translates well into the whole internet era of music. If it were the good old days and NME and Melody Maker were around, this outlandish bunch of dudes would have...
La Chat (3 6 mafia) -- Baby Mama
This was good song. The video was on the Baby Boy dvd, back when buying dvds was so awesome. dsfdf
Does gawker have professional joke writters for...
Cause for every article there is a string of bad jokes in the comments section. But not so bad that they are interesting. Just a boring kind of bad. Its like they hired some writer from the jay leno show to write jokes that make the comments section more interesting/funny/less boing to read. The fact that the jokes are so corny suggests some professionals are behind it. If only gawker could...
Wow, that last Cribs video made me look up Ghost...
The new cribs song-- housewife
I guess when Johnny marr joins your band you get kind of sucky, as in modest mouse and the cribs. Electronic was kind of wack too. But the cribs can maybe turn this sad trend around at least a litttle bit. The new song “housewife” ( with j marr right?) is ok afterall. It’s not as good as the great songs from the second or third albums, but it’s way better than that ignorent one. So things could...
What’s up with the wonka exceptionals bar commercials? They are fuckig boring but they are always on. Has anyone seen these in a store? I haven’t but does that count for anything?
did big boi dis lebron james in Shine Blockas???
In “Shine Blockas” at 1:25 Big Boi says, “Word to Labrown James, you some chicken chow main, you done say the silly things.” I don’t like Labron either.
a good song i kind of like
#Island Summer — unouomedude # This song is kind of good. I can’t complain, now can I? It’s free song I guess.
yo yo, zup?
Bad Romance vs. Jen ai marre
Are these songs similar? And there’s like some French in the Lady Gaga song too. Is this supposed to be like that? I can’t tell..
Songs for a Kohl's commercial - the worst songs of...
Atlas Sound - Walkabout This sounds like some quirky shit they would have played on some fruity 1990s show like Real World - San Fransisco. Or maybe that stupid show “Friends” and they would all dance around like morons wearing bad clothes. Dirty Projectors - Stillness is the move This music video seems like something some 10 year girls in the 1990s would have made after they got...
I always liked this version of the holiday song...
Kimberly Clark Gift Box
I have recieved a delightful Kimberly Clark Gift Box in recognition of my blogging efforts, and helping Target find music for their TV commercials. It was huge, and has Kleenex and several kinds of booty wipes. Oh What a Day!
Songs for a Target commercial - the best songs of...
Since only the very best songs of 2008 made it into Target/Crayola commercials, I thought I’d be kind enough to post a preview of the songs we’ll be hearing on tv in 2010. These are the BEST SONGS OF 2009. It was a really good year this year… 1 Higher Than The Stars The Pains of Being Pure at Heart 2 Last One Awake (Friend Version) Memory Cassette ...
TMobile My Touch commerical is annoying
That T-mobile my touch commercial is so annoying. it has a bunch of old geezers showing that some crappy phone has pointless applications. i can’t wait till all the baby boomers have died.
Monday Jamz The good life is very affordable,...
The good life is very affordable, but you have to move to a rural area and go with the flow and get fat. Houses out there probably only cost like $50000, and you don’t really have to work too much since everyone is fat. That’s certainly something to think about this Monday.
“i’m sorry we lied” is a really...
