Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun

Handpicked: Soundgarden – “Black Hole Sun”

Here’s the skinny on the song: “Black Hole Sun” is the third single released from Soundgarden’s fourth album, Superunknown, and is probably their most recognized song to date.  The song was released as a single in May of 1994 and […]

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony - Home

Handpicked: Bone Thugs-n-Harmony – “Home”

I know we don’t post a lot of rap on Electric Mohawk, but there is something about “Home” that just fits. This Bone Thugs N Harmony song was released on Thug World Order  in 2002. I am really starting to get into mashups, and this one seems to pre-date the growing movement. I’ve always been a […]

System of a Down - Aerials

Handpicked: System of a Down – Aerials

“Aerials” by System of a Down is one of those songs that just gets me every time I listen to it. While the seemingly cryptic lyrics may deter some people from the song, I find them essential.  The instrumentals on the track are what sold me on the song. I’d say that this is probably my […]

Spacehog - In the Meantime

Handpicked: Spacehog – In the Meantime

It wasn’t until Rob Berrones put up a pretty sweet 90s music playlist that I was re-introduced to “In the Meantime” by Spacehog.  The song is a mellow mid-90s rock song from the band’s debut album, Resident Alien, and a song I’ve always been keen on.  Many of you will probably recognize it. Random thought: is […]

Blaqk Audio is an electronic music side project of AFI members Davey Havok and Jade Puget.  Their debut album, CexCells, was released  in August of 2007, and released their first single called “Stiff Kittens”.  The song is still my favorite from the album and reminds me of a mixture between De/Vision and julien-k.  Personally, I think […]

Handpicked: The Apex Theory – That’s All!

With all of us taking a break over the weekend for the holiday, I’ve fallen a bit behind on this. Oh well, time to move forward!

The Toadies - Hell Below / Stars Above

Handpicked: The Toadies – Plane Crash

Most people that have heard of The Toadies have most likely only heard the song “Possum Kingdom” from the album Rubberneck.  After a few mishaps, the band released a follow up album in 2001 called Hell Below / Stars Above. I’m very surprised the follow up album didn’t do as well as I thought it […]

Take the band Orgy, add some pop and additional elements of electronic music influenced by the likes of Depeche Mode and The Chemical Brothers and you get julien-k. Created by former Orgy guitarists Ryan Shuck (vocals, guitar) and Amir Derakh (guitars, synths), the band is the juxtaposition of Orgy post-Vapor Transmission, where the opposing direction […]

The Normal - TVOD

Handpicked: The Normal – Warm Leatherette

“Warm Leatherette” is the b-side to the only single ever released by Daniel Miller, using the alias The Normal.  The song is significant for a number of reasons; first, it’s an excellent example of early Industrial and Gothic music. Second, the release of the single “TVOD” (Television Overdose) that features the song was the gateway […]
