a lesson in rhythm

A Lesson In Crime

a lesson in crime by tokyo police club (paper bag records) is a very nice option if you're tired of the same old stuff playing on the radio. they remind me of many bands at once (their press kit mentions bowie, joy division and the arcade fire, among others). as usual, feel free to buy at emusic.

the only son makes good songs!

the drop to the top

only son (cassette recordings) sounds honestly good to me. the solo project of jack dishel, the songs that i've managed to listen from his first album are very melodic, somehow reminiscent of matthew sweet and belle & sebastian. if you go to his myspace page, there are 3 songs to listen to. for those with a few extra credits, buy the best tracks at emusic.

sing this song whilst you shower!

Gnarls Barkley
(from the debut album "St. Elsewhere:)

I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place
Even your emotions had an echo and so much space

And when you're out there without care
Yeah I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me Crazy
Does that make me Crazy
Does that make me Crazy

And I hope that you are having the time of your life
But think twice, that's my only advice
Come on now
who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you
think you are, ha ha ha bless your soul
you really think you're in control

I think you're Crazy
I think you're Crazy
I think you're Crazy
Just like me

My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on the limb
All I remember is thinking I want to be like them.
Ever since I was little, ever since I was little
It looked like fun
And it's no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done

But Maybe I'm Crazy
Maybe you're Crazy
Maybe we're Crazy
