Track of the Day: Hollow Moon by Awolnation

This song has been out for awhile now and it is a pretty decent song and certainly worth hearing. But it is the track of the day because IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY.  The main refrain, starting at :52, reminds me of SOME SONG but I can’t place it.  I have asked a few musically minded friends and they all agree that it DOES sound like something but they can’t place it either.  My friend Jon did say the base line is a sped up version of U2’s Numb and I can hear that for sure.  But the top layer … Continue reading Track of the Day: Hollow Moon by Awolnation

Episode Recap: Justified: Dark as a Dungeon (S6, Ep 8)

The first few episodes of this season seemed like things were hurtling towards something dramatic but lately things have slowed down and the plan settles into place.  I am assuming motivated by his talk with Winona and commitment to be a family with her, we start this episode as Raylan is going through his father’s house, cleaning it out, burning pictures and papers and even having a mortician come out to remove the graves from the land. Ava and Boyd, back from their night in Bulletville, check in on the mine and Zachariah, who essentially demands more money from Boyd, … Continue reading Episode Recap: Justified: Dark as a Dungeon (S6, Ep 8)

Track of the Day: Black Mambo by Glass Animals

Let’s celebrate Hump Day with a sexy little song from Glass Animals.  This little English Indie band is relatively new, releasing their first album in June of 2014.  Their music is sexy and smooth and something about the chillness of it puts me in a good mood, which is much needed this week.    And while some songs might make you bob your head,  this one will make you grind your hips for sure.  Enjoy GOOEY: FACEBOOK | TWITTER | WEBSITE | buy “Zaba” on iTunes Oh yeah they are on tour right now too! https://soundcloud.com/3615_chillout/glass-animals-black-mambo Continue reading Track of the Day: Black Mambo by Glass Animals

Episode Recap: Justified – The Hunt (S6 Ep7)

After Limehouse told Boyd that Ava was lying to him, we knew something was going to happen, and happen it did.  Boyd takes Ava on a “vacation” up to his family cabin in the woods.  When they get there the subject of marriage comes up and that Ava thought her first husband was nice and normal and he snapped and got crazy violent after marriage.  Will Boyd be the same way?  He takes her by the neck and slams her against the wall, hard enough she bruises, but she is able to kiss him and stalls a fight.  The next day … Continue reading Episode Recap: Justified – The Hunt (S6 Ep7)

Eargasm of the Week: “Hold Me Closer” by LANKS

LANKS is one of those artists that manages to take sounds that might not individually appeal to one’s ears but once he combines them all together, it is a euphoric melody to the ear. I sort of imagine him in brightly lit scientific lab but instead of smoke billowing from test tubes, it’s a drum heart beat here, a distorted wailing noise there, and the sound of electricity over there…smiling madly as he combines it all into music. He has quickly moved into our obsession music list. We can’t stop listening and won’t stop listening. What I like about “Hold Me Closer” is that … Continue reading Eargasm of the Week: “Hold Me Closer” by LANKS
