Siouxsie and the Banshees - Cities in Dust

Handpicked: Siouxsie and the Banshees – “Cities in Dust”

There is no doubt that Siouxsie and the Banshees were an influence on a lot of today’s music, especially their early punk phase. I’m more of a passive listener of this band, where I pick and choose only a handful of  songs that I really like. Today’s song is one of them. I have to […]

Bright Eyes- The People's Key

Handpicked: Bright Eyes – Triple Spiral

I’ll be the first to admit that I have never really been the biggest Bright Eyes fan, and I am still not (at least right now).  The only song I’ve really liked prior to The People’s Key was “Four Winds”. I got exposed to the new album on pure circumstance by downloading the 2011 Lollapalooza sampler […]

R.E.M.- Losing My Religion

Handpicked: R.E.M. – Losing My Religion

I’m sure many of you out there have already heard the news released today that R.E.M. is calling it quits after 31 years, which sounds negative,but it’s really not. From what I’ve read, the decision was mutual, there’s no hostility between band members, and they can now work on other projects. I think of it […]

New Order - Bizarre Love Triangle

Handpicked: New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle

Today’s song of the day is a song that really got me into this group. I remember hearing “Bizarre Love Triangle” by New Order early on in my high school days, and it provided the perfect gateway for me to get into New Order. I’ve always been familiar with New Order, but never had the […]

Depeche Mode - Precious

Handpicked: Depeche Mode – Precious

To some degree, I’ve always been a Depeche Mode fan. I can’t say when I started really getting into them, but I do remember hearing “Enjoy the Silence” on local radio from time to time while growing up. When Exciter was released, I still remember seeing the video for “Dream On” for the first time. […]

Placebo - Special K

Handpicked: Placebo – “Special K”

I remember at a very young age seeing Placebo’s music video for “Pure Morning” airing on MTV when the song was released. Naive at the time, I shrugged off the video and didn’t know what to make of it (I was around 10 or 11 at the time, and this music thing was sort of […]

A Perfect Circle - 3 Libras

Handpicked: A Perfect Circle – “3 Libras”

The majority of the music that I’ve found to be very compelling and influential to me was sought out and found during my late junior high and high school years. Obviously, age and other factors were responsible for this, but there is still much of that music today that carries the profound effects it did […]

Queens of the Stone Age - Little Sister

Handpicked: Queens of the Stone Age – “Little Sister”

Today’s handpicked song of the day comes from Queens of the Stone Age. “Little Sister” was a great single to release from 2005’s Lullabies to Paralyze, the follow up album to Songs for the Deaf.  I picked this song because of the great guitar riff, abstract solo, and complex drumming. All of these elements create a […]

Hot Chip

Handpicked: Hot Chip – “I Feel Better” (KCRW)

I’ve decided to spin up another series to get all of you immersed into all of the great music that’s out there. I’ve decided to challenge myself to a music based 365 project where I post a different song everyday that has some sort of value to me.  Another constraint I am putting on this […]
