Out with the old...


A few short minutes ago, 2008 arrived here on the east coast. My goal was the write about all the old albums that I was going to before the ball dropped. Since that didn't quite happen, I'm going to cheat a little and give you one big mass of music that you can listen to while thinking about how long your resolutions are going to last. Here goes:


Some really off-the-wall rockabilly/blues/punk via Denmark:

Powersolo - Baby, You Ain't Looking Right
: It's Raceday ...And Your Pussy Is GUT!!!

Powersolo - Hillbilly Child : It's Raceday ...And Your Pussy Is GUT!!!


Visit their website, their label Crunchy Frog Recordings, and become their friend on MySpace.

The most recent effort from Weeds theme song co-singer:

Johnathan Rice - We're All Stuck Out In The Desert : Further North

Johnathan Rice - It Couldn't Be Me : Further North


Visit his website, his label Reprise Records, and become his friend on MySpace.

Quasi-punk energy levels meet a little zaniness:

the johns - Coney Island
: The Johns Wanna Dance

the johns - I Want It Bad : The Johns Wanna Dance


Visit their website and become their friend on MySpace.

Sounds like Pony Up!, but one ups the girls from up north with an additional male vocalist - somewhat B-52s'ish (try Tarantula below - sound close to Roam?):

Polynya - Tarantula : Polynya

Polynya - Cubicle
: Polynya


Visit their website and become their friend on MySpace.

Mostly soothingly mellow instrumental work with equally placid lyrics. Nice counterpoint to the above punk tendencies.

Zillionaire - I Won't Let You Down (This Time) : The Street Lights Have Been Turned Down

Zillionaire - The Occasion Of The Water Heater
: The Street Lights Have Been Turned Down


Become their friend on MySpace.

Oh, and by the way, Happy New Years!
