Song of the Day
[Song of the Day] CCFX - "The One to Wait" + Remix

[Song of the Day] CCFX – “The One to Wait” + Remix

“Is it right to stay? Is home a trap and growth a phase? Never guess too late Or you will be the one to wait” Somehow the Universe just finally delivered this gem to me. Olympia, Washington’s CCFX put this track out on DFA Records and I’m supremely happy they did– it’s the perfect blend...
[Song of the Day] Idles - "Danny Nedelko"

[Song of the Day] Idles – “Danny Nedelko”

Today's song of the day is a bass-driven pro-immigrant punk rock anthem from this English band, Idles (pronounced "idols"). It's extremely refreshing in today's political climate.
[Song of the Day] Temple of the Dog - "Say Hello to Heaven"

[Song of the Day] Temple of the Dog – “Say Hello to Heaven”

TEMPLE OF THE DOG “SAY HELLO TO HEAVEN”   This one hurts. I almost feel like I lost a friend. Vague memories of time spent with my brother around our house as kids, and the Superunknown record cover with its flashes of red and blaze and blurred black and white ever present. Chris Cornell felt it all,...
[Song of the Day] RATATAT - "Cream On Chrome"

[Song of the Day] RATATAT – “Cream On Chrome”

RATATAT “CREAM ON CHROME” Five years later…RATATAT has blessed us with a new track, “Cream on Chrome.” It’s a good day.
[Song of the Day] Big Scary - "Why Hip Hop Sucks in '13"

[Song of the Day] Big Scary – “Why Hip Hop Sucks in ’13”

BIG SCARY “WHY HIP HOP SUCKS IN ’13” Apparently this week is an Australian takeover. Day two goes to Melbourne duo Big Scary. The song I chose is off their 2013 release Not Art, although I recommend Twin River EP as well. Enjoy.
[Song of the Day] Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "Multi-Love"

[Song of the Day] Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Multi-Love”

Unknown Mortal Orchestra “Multi-Love” “Multi-Love Checked into my heart and trashed it like a hotel room Who is your God? Where is she? She wants to bury me in Austin under Uchiko. She don’t want to be a man or a woman She wants to be your love” The song of the day today goes...
[Song of the Day] Maui - "Slide In"

[Song of the Day] Maui – “Slide In”

MAUI “SLIDE IN” You’d expect the sound to be some sort of tall can wielding,  lo-fi garage rock. Nothing wrong with that of course, but after listening to London four-piece, Maui‘s latest single “Slide In,” you get more of an Arctic Monkeys / Deerhunter vibe with drugged up, guitar laden melodies. Definitely worth a listen. Enjoy.
[Song of the Day] Cloud Control - Dojo Rising

[Song of the Day] Cloud Control – Dojo Rising

CLOUD CONTROL “DOJO RISING” Just found the Australian indie pop band Cloud Control, and they’ve been a huge part of my life since they entered it a few hours ago. The entire album is great, but if I had to choose one track, it would be “Dojo Rising.” Here are a few more selects from their...
[Song of the Day] Jessica Pratt - "Back, Baby"

[Song of the Day] Jessica Pratt – “Back, Baby”

Jessica Pratt “Back, Baby” [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/175335041″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] Last night Jessica Pratt played in Portland and now all I want is to become a bioluminescent unicorn just like her. This song was my favorite thing that happened and she played it just after thanking some friends in the audience for putting up with...
[Song of the Day] Lia Ices - "Thousand Eyes"

[Song of the Day] Lia Ices – “Thousand Eyes”

“Thousand Eyes” is off Lia Ices September 2014 album Ices, the follow-up to her wonderful 2011 Grown Unknown. I enjoy Grown Unknown more than Ices, but Lia Kessel still produces several great songs this time out, “Thousand Eyes” being one of them. You can find Lia Ices albums through her Website or Jagjaguwar and follow...
[Song of the Day] Shannon and the Clams - "Rip Van Winkle"

[Song of the Day] Shannon and the Clams – “Rip Van Winkle”

“Rip Van Winkle” and “Into a Dream” are both off Shannon and the Clams 2013 album Dreams in the Rat House. I missed this when it first came out last year, but have been blasting sunny beach music loud to scare away the gloomy weather and found these songs in the process. They’ve had no...
[Song of the Day] The Abigails - "Twenty Nine"

[Song of the Day] The Abigails – “Twenty Nine”

I don’t think I could do a better job of placing The Abigails in a certain genera than they did themselves with “Drunken Nylon String Twang.“ “Twenty Nine” is off their 2014 album Tundra which can be found on their Bandcamp or through Burger Records. “Black Hell” and “The Waiting Game” are both off Songs...
