Santacon is one of the many strange things that goes on in New York. Basically loads of egits all meet up in the city dressed as Santy. Many people choose to get shit faced and go from bar to bar acting the maggot. So if you feel like dressing up in red and don't want to get chased by the bulls in Millickstown head to NYC around the Christmas.
Either some bastard robbed it or me being some stupid bastard lost it but I have had to purchase my third Iphone. After going without for 3 days I cannot do without.
I went to the Greenwich Connecticut store and they totally messed up, the phone wouldn't scan and they wiped my information and after a 2 hour experience I still walked away empty handed except for the $100 bag of Iphone goodies I got because the fecked up. Later myself and Bridie went the the Westchester Apple store were they got me up and running in 5 minutes. Moral of the story is don't be a toolbox and loose your Iphone
Deadly tune and nice video from Throw Me The Statue. Throw Me the Statue is an indie pop group from Seattle, Washington, United States which consists of singer/songwriter/guitarist Scott Reitherman and a revolving lineup of musicians and formed in 2005. TMTS’ debut record “Moonbeams” was issued in 2008. It features the single “Lolita”. The band’s new EP, “Purpleface” was released in early 2009.

Years ago I heard this song and could not find out who it was, you have to remember that those were the days before Shazam. So much has happened since BRAN VAN 3000 released their debut CD, GLEE. They've watched as their first single, Drinking In L.A., became a staple at stations like ENERGY 108 and climbed its way to #3 on the national campus charts. Shortly after, the video went straight into medium rotation at MUCHMUSIC and later, graduated to heavy. Thus putting Bran Van 3000 on the musical wagging dogs tail.

I couldnt find an original video but here is the song "News" from Tune Yards the class new band. Possessing an expansive sound that marries a coarse folk ingenuity with the bold pop sensibility of an R&B siren, BiRd-BrAiNs was assembled with a staunch DIY aesthetic. Recording herself using a digital voice recorder and produced using shareware mixing software, she was described by Stereogum as “a self-contained Sublime Frequencies compilation, jumping between blues, African tunes, shiny reggae-esque sprawls, and lo-fi folk”, infusing the worldly sonic palette of M.I.A. or post-punk pioneers The Raincoats.
Having played across the U.S. and taken SXSW and ATP by storm, tUnE-yArDs will be touring Europe throughout September with Dirty Projectors. The album ranges from the surreal to the sublime, with ‘Lions’ described by Pitchfork as “halfway between a singsong schoolyard rhyme and a graveyard blues” whilst ‘Jamaican’ could be the blueprint to a Timbaland-produced gem with it’s ricocheting drums pattern and intoxicating tape loops.
The record receives a limited edition CD screen-printed release, prior to a full release later this year.

When you think of Palm Beach, Florida, what comes to mind? Palm trees swaying gently in the balmy breeze? Scantily-clad bikini buxom babes rollerblading down an infinite slab of coral-colored concrete? How about anthemic, bombastic, life-affirming indie pop? If the latter didn’t occur to you, let us introduce you to Surfer Blood: they call West Palm Beach home and, while still in their early 20s, have penned an album worth of catchy, summery indie songs that even the most hook-laden power pop band. Rockon the catchy riff in the middle.
The hillarious Hills spoof. !!! Thanks Frankie "peanut" Mc Cague.
Cant believe this is the first Bob Dylan tune that I put on the blog. I feckin sin I say, a sin. I remember the good old days back in Ardee when first hearing Bob. You know the story about when the Beatles met him and they started smoking weed, kinda the same thing for me except all I had to do was hear him. Bob you bastard !! The last line of the tune really hit home for me when returning to Ardee after being on vacation in New York many years back.
I have to say I'm not the biggest gangsta shit music fan but I cant help like the tune from Kid Cudi, Its probably the fact that he is aided by Ratatat and MGMT.
Cool Tune !!! Smoke em.
I first got to lovin Weezer back in about ninty three with there song Buddy Holly. They are still pumping out great tunes but I must admit I think they got a little to poppy the past few years but whatever, I love the new tune, enjoy !
It’s a chorus of voices, a lot of reverb echo, some electronics of the messed up cheap variety, or toy pianos. It’s far away…a little underwater. A lot of noise and yelling, a garage a thon, sounds recorded live in that way that most live stuff doesn’t come close to. From Sacramento, CA
