Hand-picked: J Dilla – So Far To Go

Going through Spotify’s pre-made playlists can be hit or miss. From the “Mellow Beats” playlist, I found a good one. This song is reminiscent of late 80s R&B coupled with a “Cruising” feel. Enjoy.

Cold Cave - Cherish the Light Years

Handpicked: Cold Cave – Icons of Summer

My buddy Seth introduced me to Cold Cave a few weeks ago and I haven’t been able to stop listening to their albums, particularly their latest, called Cherish the Light Years.  I’ve been very impressed with their sound. It sounds like a mixture of Bauhaus, Tesla Boy, Crystal Castles, and New Order. Cold Cave stems […]

Straight No Chaser Christmas

Handpicked: Straight No Chaser- The 12 Days of Christmas

Happy Holidays! If you are like me, you get annoyed with Christmas showing up before Halloween. But, after Thanksgiving, I welcome a chill in the air, the lights and the old familiar songs of the season. This one just so happens to be my new favorite.

Prince - When Doves Cry

Handpicked: Prince – When Doves Cry

You cannot dismiss the idea that Prince’s older music was a big deal way back in the 80s, and still is today.  “When Doves Cry” was the first single from Prince’s 1984 album, Purple Rain, and was the top selling single of that year. Here’s Prince at his finest. This always has been, and always […]

Finch - What It Is to Burn

Handpicked: Finch – Awake

What It Is to Burn by Finch is one of those albums I periodically must revisit.  Every time I listen to the band’s debut album, I am reminded of how diverse each song is, especially for the time it was released (2001). Each song encapsulates its own sub-genre of post-hardcore and alternative rock. Today’s song comes […]

The Dandy Warhols - Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia

Handpicked: The Dandy Warhols – Mohammad

Over time, “Mohammad” has become my favorite song from the Dandy Warhols.  The song is the second track from their third album Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia. Nestled between the songs “Godless” and “Nietzsche”, “Mohammad” paints a surreal landscape that evokes imagination and serenity. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this track. Big thanks to my friend, […]

Gogol Bordello - Super Taranta!

Handpicked: Gogol Bordello – Alcohol

Gogol Bordello is one of my favorite ethnically driven bands out there. Described as gypsy punk rockers, the band knows how to put on a great show. I saw them a few years ago in Chicago at the Metro with some friends. The opening acts were kind of shitty, but Gogol’s 2+ hour set and […]

Handpicked: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross feat. Karen O – “Immigrant Song”

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film soundtrack is one I have been looking forward to since I heard that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross would be writing the score for it.  Much to my suprise, though, would I find out that they would include a badass cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” featurning Karen O.
