For Kids In The Hall. Can you, or can’t you, kill Rock & Roll?
Due to continued internet issues, my ability is post is zero to none. However, I’m moving this weekend, and then hopefully everything will be better.
I love how Willow Smith manages to make cutting-edge R&B while acting completely age-appropriate, as in this video. What else could you expect from a child of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith?
Have a great weekend, people!
This song sounds a little like it could have been written by an ex-druggie ’60s folk singer, or … Kurt Vile. Listening to it, I’m lying in the grass, I’m looking at the stars; I’m sitting in a rocking chair on a porch somewhere, sounding grizzled, and telling some youngin’ about the good old days. Kurt Vile isn’t saying a lot, mostly just conveying something that can’t be put in words, but somehow makes it into this song.
I’m starting a new job today, hence the mix:
Elvis Costello – Welcome To The Working Week
The Replacements – I Will Dare
Ryan Adams – To Be Young (Is To Be Sad, Is To Be High)
Belle & Sebastian – White Collar Boy
The Dead Milkmen – Do the Brown Nose
Drive-By Truckers – This Fucking Job
In other news, blog updates may be a bit tricky this week with my continued internet connection issues. Updates may be few and far between.
Spider Bags’ new single will be out in two days (Tuesday, Oct. 19), so I’m getting this post in just under the wire. I’m ashamed to admit that the band has been around since at least 2005 and I’ve only just heard of them. I’d say using anything with the word “country” to describe this Chapel Hill-based band is pushing it, but the song is a fun-filled post-hangover anthem, and I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more.

For Monty Python‘s Argument Clinic:
Either Katy Goodman aspires to be Jenny Lewis 2.0 (she of the redheaded brigade and many, many musical side projects) or she’s just incredibly restless: in addition to her continued work with Vivian Girls and All Saints Day, she’s also recording as La Sera. Of course, all the blog-kids are all over this most recent development and I am so behind the times. Personally, I’m finding the aesthetic of La Sera very appealing, and can’t wait to see where it goes!
