Kill Rock Stars: free mp3 singles and Britney's baby

A sluggish damp and rainy Jersey fall day does two things. 1) slows down the internet and 2) invites leisure time to hunt and peruse boring things like your webstats and look for free singles. A perfect band name could be Britney's baby. What it would sound like would could be something off of Linda Perry's lost album In Flight, a Ani Defranco female vocal single called "Freeway", combined with maybe something of off Men's recovery project, their freebee, "Sexual Partner", a herky-jerky drum/guitar reality song, tune about getting off, something that certainly happens to images of BS. It would be repulsive in nature this is certain. Countering is a very simple Hendrix beat tune w/ some very white rappin' narrative bit "is all for updated", which sounds like if Big Bird took you through the alphabet and let you know what Barr stood for, if you couldn't tell by their arty title: Beyond the Reinforced Jewelcase, no DMX word craft here and not all like the beasties, which is usually the point via KRS, so ok I get it - thanks! Last-up, is "Wrong time capsule" by Deerhoof which you should grab right now if you were going to clog the internet with a mp3 download. The hard l/r mono mix is a little annoying, but if you , there are echoes of Blonde redhead, and the right channel guitar rips like the Laughing Hyenas or Preston's strat from Mule. If you have no clue what I am talking about you should make a b-line and just download Asheley'S new album somewhere and then stab your eardrums with a spoon.

That's funny--a sluggsish, damp and rainy Massachusetts day creates similar activity, often resulting in spending inordinate amounts of time on memepool or metafilter.
