Song of the Day: "Autumn Love"

There's a big rush of new releases coming out which can only mean on thing: it's almost Jesus's birthday!!!!

Pass the pumpkin spice whatevers.

Song of the Day: "Ganja Burn"

It's unusual for me to see Nicki Minaj as the sole artist credited on a song. She's pretty ubiquitous as a collaborator these days (which is why I say it's unusual for me to see her as the sole artist... duh).

This has got a charm to it.

Song of the Day: "Curse of the I-5 Corridor"

Neko harmonizes with Mark Lanegan, and I can never remember who he is.

Oh, right, him.

Song of the Day: "Movin' On"

Paul Weller's 14th album as a solo artist comes out in September. E thinks True Meanings will sound distinct, and different from the Mod Father oeuvre, in the way Confessions of a Pop Group differed for The Style Council.

I'm just shrugging cause all I know is I don't know shit these days.

Song of the Day: "Cats and Dogs"

Best Coast are following one of the myriad paths I have for Liza to finally win a fucking Grammy: kids music. Think about it: Liza + Little Richard + Elton John + Ellen + Fred Schneider... gay parents (and possibly some str8 parents wanting to seem cool) would be all over that shit.

And that's who votes for the Grammys: gay parents (and str8 parents trying to seem cool).

It's a whole thing.

Song of the Day: "Crack the Code"

During part of this song I might have characterized it as "Dawes does The National"--something that, on paper, would be compelling--but it falls apart based on insipid songwriting.

Is it possible to be aggressively insipid? Asking for a friend.

Awkward but True

Friend: Where's Clark these days?

Me: Well, a third of his ashes are in the trunk of my car.

Womp, womp.

(Technically it's a hatchback.)
