FJM Spotify Sessions

Hi.  It's no secret that we are FJM fanboys.  If you're looking for something to fill up about 13 minutes of your eartime this morning, you could do worse than the Father John Misty Spotify Sessions.  No new material here, just the same old great stuff. Though it seems they've slightly updated I'm Writing a Novel, which happens to have one of the best opening lines I've heard in a song in some time.  Coincidentally these are also my favorite three songs from the album.

Spotify link here.

Unfortunately it seems that he has cancelled his Twitter account recently, which was a great source of entertainment for me.  Please come back man, and stay away from those Canadian Shamans.


Action Bronson - Rare Chandeliers (mixtape)

Album Cover of the Year. 

Also: This:
This video never gets old. theres a whole bunch of these where he's cooking bison burgers and ahi tuna and whatnot, but this is the best one is,  he instructs you on how to cook a "bachelor" meal. He's usually in a restaurant for his cooking videos but for this one hes in some terrible apartment and doesn't have all the utensils he really needs on hand to properly make this meal, but he makes it work. Informative. Very helpful, thanks dude.  



This song is so chillwave you guys, I really love this creepy anime video. Kinda porny, kinda horror. This is what should have happened in the pool scene in "Kids".


Candelbox-Far Behind (Video)

Hey Blog readera! Here's another throwback to when radio music totally rocked! Could Justin Bieber sing like this? He's really talented but he doesn't have pipes like this dude! This band totally shreds like its nobody's damn business! Rock on everybody!

You can buy their album  here!  or at your local Tower Records.

Sébastien Tellier - Pépito Bleu (Official Music Video)

He's Back and...
What Ze Shit is this.
I love it. Video of the Year
Off the forthcoming "My God is Blue"

"Don’t listen to my album; listen to my message. Enter into vibration with my music. Let’s merge our dreams, together spreading this communal energy in an immense blue wave that will wash over the world– and truth will emerge.” – Sébastien Tellier


Duran Duran-The Chauffeur (Lightly NSFW Video)

It's pretty obvious Duran Duran stole some of Robert Palmer's backing band to make this nearly pornographic music video. Did they think it was more "artistic" if the band didn't appear in it; did a lot of closeups of inanimate objects to make them appear meaningful or symbolic and shot it black and white? Well it worked guys! "The Chauffeur" is titillating andddd tasteful!

If you guessed fleet foxes, you're absolutely right! lol enjoy y'all!!


Yellow Ostrich - Strange Land

Yellow Ostrich's first album was the brain child of Alex Schaaf and was recorded in his bedroom. The second album has been recorded and Alex has added a few band mates and it was probably recorded in a much bigger room. I first saw this band at Glasslands in Brooklyn and he got on stage and played his album from start to finish. He was new to the scene and nervous but killed it. I knew there would be good things to come. So here we are with the release of his second album and a few songs have been released that sound great. You can head to their site for some free downloads. Below you can quickly stream them to to see if you like.


The Lumineers

I will be taking back my post as the alt country connoisseur and will be floating through some new guys that are on the up and up. The Lumineers album is not yet released and there is a lot of the DIY videos of them popping up on the world wide interwebz. It is sweet heart felt tunes that will catch your ear and is just the type of thing I like to take in on a cold Tuesday evening. The "Hey Ho" song is obviously the single but there are others that are good. Can't wait for the album. Hope y'all enjoy.



PSA: Obama has been infected by a Reptilian Host (Proof)

Hopefully I won't get followed or bugged by the CIA for posting about this, but the lamestream media is ignoring the imminent danger posed to us by Reptilians and the word needs to get out!! This is a great concern to me that this information is kept from us and soon we're all gonna be slaves to the Reptilians who are already hatching plans against us from deep inside the Earth's core, in outerspace and in their Reptilian other dimension. Both the CIA and FBI are fully aware of all of this, even though both agencies have denied the existence of Reptoids and Reptilians. They are obviously in cahoots about keeping this from the general public, probably to avoid panic by the American sheeple. However now that there is proof that the President is being controlled by a Reptilian who has been surgically implanted inside of him; something must be done, and I had to take to the internet to warn my family and friends of the danger we face.

This is all no secret at the higher levels of government, after all....why do you think that Newt Gingrich said our president is from "Planet Obama"...Newt Gingrich knows something is going on and he's hinting at it at the video below...

He said "He doesn't seem to operate on the same planet you and I do"!!! Well, obviously! Newt knows about the other dimension that the Reptilians live in, and that Obama is now being operated by a being who came from there. He's clearly hinting at it and yet the public has no idea at all what he's talking about and think he's referring to Obama's economic foreign relations policies. Sad how blind they are.

However Obama is not the only reptilian host human in the US government, look closely at Donald Rumsfeld's eyes in this photo, he's not even trying to hide the fact that he is in fact a Reptilian. It's obvious.

This untouched photo is proof that Beyonce is a reptilian host, look at the scales on her right temple.
Also, consider the lyrics to her song: "Upgrade You" which are clearly about turning Jay-Z into a reptoid as well...
"That little glimpse of light
Makes that diamond really shine
And you already is a star"
Reptilians are star people (obviously) and as you can read from lyrics they come from the light. So there, proof.

For more information about factually relevant facts about reptoids visit www.reptoids.com
and also take a look at this site which has some disturbing images which show proof that there are many powerful public figures to be infected by a reptilian: http://stargods.org/ReptilianPage.htm


Goldfish - Fort Knox

This band from Cape Town South Africa has made a song that will undoubtedly make you want to get up and shake your ass a bit. One fan of theirs has made a video doing exactly that and will mesmerize most men for the entire 3:19. So I have killed to birds with one stone. I have found an electronica group from another continent and I have a new found respect for the hula hoop.


Hunx & His Punx-Cruising

This dude used to open up for Jay Reatard and be his BFF. So already there's cred, and then there is this song about cruising for dudes with a video to boot with the leather outfits and mustaches and all that shit that just is awesome. If I type in "Rick Santorum Campaign Song" enough times do you think this might show up? lets find out.

Franco Battiato-Areknames

 Franco Battiato is now a very popular and respected singer in Italy. His career peaked in the mid eighties, which is long after he'd toned down the weirdness of his early albums in favor of more normal song structures and album works. Which is great, however these early albums, the ones which caused him to lose an Italian record contract and thus apparently rethink his approach to music are what I find much more interesting. Between 1971 and 1974 Franco Battiato released some very strange yet extremely carefully produced and well crafted experimental psychedelic progressive electronic albums (I really don't know how better to describe them) which are really fucking good if you're not all ready turned off by my description of them. They are simply not for everyone.

Fetus (1971), Pollution (1972), Sulle Corde di Aries (1973), and Clic (1974); are a bizarre cluster of works that explore a progression from psychedelia into semi classical music with an aplomb for absurdity, and a clear lack of desire for accessibility. There is absolutely no emphasis on making a "single" let alone a "song"; these are album works, born of time when that could happen; yet even in that era, these were still too weird to catch on. Crafting a song with a giant break in it filled with ocean sounds that fade out as the track then builds back up with chanting accompanied by a strummed acoustic guitar and a blaring synth line... is simply not going to reach a wide audience-no matter how well it seems designed. That's life. Having said that, beautifully simple oft times distorted and reversed melodies abound in these works, random samples are weaved into tracks, and multi part song structures are par for every track; it also seems as if the finest stereo technology effects available at the time are used to their fullest effect in these works; and all of this results in some truly incredible headphone music. It's weird but pretty great. Here are two examples:

This one is from his second album "Pollution" which is a little more "song based" but not by much.

This is the most accessible song from the first album in terms of "singles".... it being a 5 minute song suite about god knows what.
