Awaiting M. Ward...

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Things I’m looking forward to next week: M.Ward’s new album. Seriously CANNOT wait. If you don’t know who he is, you better wake the f up. He’s most famous as the “Him” of the group She and Him with Zooey Deschannel (the girl from Elf, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, crazy girlfriend on Weeds, etc.). Their album was prob one of the best albums of 2008 in my humble opinion. But his solo stuff is pretty darn fantastic (see post #1 about me and folk-y music...). Is it the 17th yet? In the meantime these songs have been rotating through my iPod with ever increasing frequency...

It's like Alvin and the Chipmunks took a bunch of speed and learned to rap...

Durrty Goodz - The Youngers

Girl Talk. I have a love/hate relationship….I have to be in a certain mood to enjoy it. BUT this just makes me crack up. From the album Unstoppable the beginning of this song is just too too good to not like it. Background music from Richard Marx’s “I’ll Be Right Here Waiting For You” and Khia’s “My Neck, My Back” on top of it, is pretty fucking funny. The rest of the song kind of blows but the beginning is soooo worth it.

Girl Talk - Non Stop Party

Though nobody can replicate OutKast’s greatness, The Knux are trying valiantly….

The Knux - Bang Bang

And finally Peter Gabriel covers (with Hot Chip) a song that mentions him. Ha. Very clever.

Peter Gabriel - Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa
