Name a Band / Song We Should Know About

I've posted Skatune before, but I really loved this interpretation of the main tune from one of Nintendo's most underrated games.

The new Die Antwoord is quite a change from what I’ve heard before

I don't normally care for them (though some of their instrumental tracks are pretty good) but I like that song.

"We've secretly replaced Pandasuit's Die Antwood with Gorillaz! Let's see if he notices..."

I seriously wonder how Damon Albarn was not behind this. It's a letter-perfect homage to Gorillaz.

I kept waiting for the rave beats to slam in with Ninja and Yolandi doing frantic call and response verses. But no, they stuck with it. Only the biting satirical lyrics remain from their usual rave-hop stuff.

I find it quite relaxing. They really have a stellar, creative set of music-makers. Love this.

Bonnie Raitt, in her 70s, is still releasing full-length albums, singing beautifully, and shredding her guitar. Love it.

I came back to this recently and forgot how good this particular soundtrack is. Nico Muhly will probably be my favorite composer forever. So unique. I instantly recognize any music that he's touched.

That series is pretty good too.

Hadn't listened to this particular BTS album in awhile. So good.

Happy Halloween Weekend (K-pop style)

Pink Fantasy - Tales of the Unusual (Zombie Version)

PIXY - Bewitched (Eng Ver.)

Dreamcatcher - BEcause

New Iggy Pop song is Old Skool! Love it!

I posted this thousands of posts ago, just a reminder to check out Type O Negative.

Listen to them every year around Halloween. Steele's passing was a shame.

This makes me smile... LOVE IT!


The Chipmunks, one of their 80's pop albums, but slowed to 1/16th normal speed (Sludgecore). Instant Goth classic?

Pretty Carolina by Jontha Links. I heard this is popular with RUST streamers. I heard it on a scooter range test time lapse on YT. I can't get it out of my head. Love it
I hope the lead gets more work. She is talented, charming and very easy on the eyes.

One of the dancers slips but they all keep going, dancing on snow and ice and missing the mat sucks.

Moar Maynard please

As you wish! Great interview here...

Lux Æterna

I'm really not the biggest fan of Metallica. That being said, I was really pleasantly surprised by that tune

The new Metallica single is good, but I expect that it'll be the same situation as with their last album: a great three minute banger as the first single, followed by an album full of turgid, repetitive six minute songs that needed an editor.


Oh man, out of any tour in recent times, this is one I would like to see. Not gonna travel to Seattle for it though. I saw Death Cab in Eugene, OR at a small venue on the Transatlanticism tour, so I kinda lived that era.

Caroline Polachek - Welcome To My Island

It was summer of 1985 and Friday nights on the relatively new cable station named TBS they had a show called Night Tracks that played music videos. I'd tune in weekly and my favorite video that they would play was "Shame" by The Motels. I've been on an 80s kick lately and tracking down some of the most memorable songs from my past and putting them on a Spotify playlist. Unfortunately I can't find this song on Spotify, or any of the other usual streaming services. Youtube has the video, but it's only in 360p.

The Motels - Shame

Sharing it here because I don't want this song to be forgotten.

They also did "Suddenly Last Summer", which pretty much played all the time for a while on the "College Radio" stations - what we'd now call Alternative.

"Suddenly Last Summer" and "Only the Lonely" are, I believe, their two best known songs. I think those two still get a lot of radio play on stations that play 80s music. The Motels have a lot of other great songs too that get overlooked. "Total Control" is another truly great song by them.

Has anyone mentioned Thank you Scientist in this here thread? Their Terraformer album is my, by far, most played album this year.

Weird Al talking about his most iconic tracks. One of my favorites is missing from that video
