VERVE - Endless Life

The guy who made this - Muscarine, whoever the hell he is, deserves a medal for both attempting and succeeding in adding visuals to this otherworldly song.

The Sleepy Jackson- God Lead Your Soul

Love me some Sleepy Jackson. Australian dude with a giant ego. Their music draws more from solo John Lennon than anything else. The guitarist Jules tried to get my wife to go backstage with him, the bastard.

Kasabian: Empire

The new Kasabian album is officially totally badass. This video seems bit on the "waste of money" side but the song is solid.

Janes Addiction - Classic Girl

I always loved this video and I've been meaning to track down a copy of the Gift movie, not easy. It's amazing how well the Ritual de lo Habitual album has aged. I found it unlistenable in 1990. Now it's one of the only albums from that era that I still get strong urges for today.

The Rapture - Get Myself Into It

I remember when I bought this album as though it were a day ago. It was actually two days ago and I've been obsessed with it ever since!

The Faint: Glass Danse

And from Omaha, Nebraska!? I generally hate 80's music but I can love the Faint.

Flaming Lips: do you realize

The most beautiful song I've ever heard. I bought this album immediately after the Station fire. The first time I heard this song, it was 3 days later and I was sitting on a gorgeous beach in the Dominican Republic, sipping a caipirinha. I actually felt like I was dead and that I was experiencing some sort of alternate ending, it was a terrifying and wonderfully unforgettable experience. I still have trouble listening to the words without becoming a complete puddle. It's about anybody and for everybody.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Going To Hell

Saw these crazy bastards last night and it was nothing short of mindblowing. Go ANTON!!! He was in rare form... as always. It was the first time I saw Joel, he was hilarious. He only plays when they're in San Francisco.

Lovage - Book of the Month

I've followed Mike Patton's overflowing body of work over the years, no easy task. I've always admired his commitment to constantly put something out and willingness to draw from the darker sides. His work ranges from barely listenable to completely amazing. Lovage is his collaboration with Dan the Automator (Gorillaz) and Jennifer Connolly (Elysian Fields). Apparantly there is a 2nd Lovage album in the works. I'll be there.

Publish My Love - Rogue Wave

Rogue Wave is easily the best new band I've stumbled into this year. I actually have to consciously stop myself from listening to them too often. Highly addictive.
