Song of the Day: "River"

Do you think Civil Twilight took their name from a Weakerthans song?

Discuss amongst yourselves.

Song: "River" 
Artist: Civil Twilights

Happy Birthday J-rod

J-rod gets extra credit for translating this:
Milford tribute to Kevin on granny (special church)
To this:
Mumford's tribute to Levon on Grammy's (autocorrect) 
Technically I said spell check not auto correct, but c'mon, dude's got skills. Or knows a lot of drunks.

Happy birthday dude! Rock on!

Song of the Day: "Professional Griefers"

It's sufficiently old that it's nominated for the upcoming Grammys, but it's new to me. Here's Deadmau5.

Song of the Day: "Before I Ever Met You"

Her name is BANKS and if you think she sounds like Fiona, take a step back. The sound has just as much  Portishead and Poe in there. And it's a good sound to have.

So please don't call her Fiona 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Also I'm totally digging the song.

Song of the Day: "Ceilings"

Another track from Local Natives' sophomore release Hummingbird. It's a nice midtempo mood piece.

If that sounds like me just saying random words, welcome to Monday before coffee.

Song: "Ceiling"

Almost perfect products!

Lamb Chop and Mr. Bill dog toys
Mr. Bill dog toy = genius!


Why is it almost perfect? Because it has a fucking squeaker. That's like double 9/11.


Song of the Day: "Judge, Jury and Executioner"

Dude from Radiohead and Flea (aka dude from Chili Peppers) and producer Nigel Goodrich and a non-R.E.M. dude from R.E.M. and some other dudes = Atoms for Peace.

Which is why it sounds so much like Radiohead and not a bit like R.E.M. or RHCP.

I'm liking it but you know me.
