The Black Keys - Lonely Boy

180 huh? Love this rave up from The Black Keys with Modest Mouse. The video is ehh, I mean I get it, we're suppose to both laugh with and at the middle age dude lipsynching, but honestly, how many of us middle age dudes have NOT done this at home when everyone is out. No one? Oh... well... me neither you know.

Vela - Warrior

Not sure if she is the next Ke$hia or the next Gaga, but I like the song, cool drums. And you can download it from soundcloud:

Penguin Prison

Well, not to hype this too much, but this MAY be the album o f the year. Not sure? Listen to a stream here (and then go buy it, I now you will if you like some good old electropop!) I mean this is really classy stuff. Reminds me of Sparks/Chromeo/Peter Gaberiel/ etc. Penguin Prison - Penguin Prison

Gina Lily "Deliver Me"

OK, so today I do a search on iTunes to see if the new Cotton & Gin single "Traveling and Folding" is up. I put in "Folding Gin" boom, nope, not up yet (grrrr). But this album does pop up by Gina Lily (the "gin" part I guess) - looks homemmade. The copyright is Gina Lily, so I guess it is. Eh, worth a chuckle to click on a song to see how bad it is. Holy FLurkin Snit, it's not only not bad, it is actually quite good! "Monsoon" ht me first, but all the tracks are really well done, good songwriting, well produced. Ms. Lily's voice is somewhat borderline to be honest, but she makes it work really well. It reminds me of a lot fo stuff from the early 1990s like Toni Childs, Julia Fordham etc- this is not polished autotuned pop, this is real, somewhat earthy, pop music. I am lovin this record and I have no idea who this person is. Its a shame really, she's not hooking up with (not this record anyway) or releasing a sex tape, so I guess she'll never really get noticed. Too bad. this is the kind of record A&M or Elektra would have put out. If yo uknow what I mean then you know that this is a good, well done record that will sink beneath the waves without a trace. Sigh.

SebastiAn "Love In Motion" featuring Mayer Hawthorne (Skrillex's Funkt-Out Remix

You know me as practically a Skrillex stalker, but lately I felt he was in a real rut. Well, he digs himself out to a large degree with this tasty remix.

Come On, Come On (Joe Claussell Dance Dance Version) Scott Hardkiss f./Lisa Shaw

I am not sure why I love this track so, but I do. Perhaps it is the jazz fan/jam band fan inside I me I try to dny, but it might also be that this is just a really cool downtempo dance track. listen n love

Watch the video, the song will stick in your head.
