Pitchfork Music Festival cd: free sweet sounds

Last month Emusic offered an anti-records sampler. This month to one up them there is a free sampler from the pitchdorks, and Damn it's pretty good. Granted some of the bands were obvious includes; but the ones I had no clue about are worth my download bandwidth. The best part is the free part, no need to go scowering their site, or any of my usual free mp3 haunts. Get the Pitchfork music 'samplete' while it is hot. Besides the obviouse selections: tapes n' tapes, art brut and ted leo; the unknowns struck as familiar chords and beyond my expectation of the usual pitchfork disapointments of late. They must have picked bands by penalty of death. Normally I am very disapointed on the bands they decide to "hype". They've been fired many countless times not just for their poor word choice but moreoever for their really bad taste. I am Diging the futureheads tracks, although sounds like big country, also like the hip-hop of Mr. Lif and the indie sounds of chin up chinup. Not bad. thanks!

Redhotchillipeppers vs The Raconteurs

Call it a comeback, the RHCP "Dani California" video on music.com is pretty cliche but for a band that has been around as long as Flea and boys they can get away with it being that they've been a band since the 80's. The samhain misfits and glam section are funny while the nirvana part is pretty dark considering their relationship with the black tar, almost killing Keidis a number of times. See Scar Tissue.

The band backed by jack white, The Raconteurs, does steady as she goes,decent band, great fun for White but nothing special in the video, the song has the obvious chorus and would expect them to have taken some risks. The winner here deserves a full cd purchaseStadium Arcadium. i will though be happy if mr white doesn't go near the stuff.

Shout at the Devil posts

Part of my normal saturday routine is going to emusic but lately it's been agravating because so is the rest of working stiff world. So thanks internet mp3 devils for posting some great tunes on 6/6/06 and there abouts. Here are some mp3 blogs that really are going to help your commute. I guess I'm floating with six six six, the always reliable I am Fuel you are friends, can you see the sunset, and LA's RockInsider's post on the devil made me do it. thank you f'rs

Music We-tards at Wefest

ok, I made it back in one piece from drinking lots of beer in various forms and hanging out with a bunch of dear wefesters. I even started a group for all wetards to post and contribute photos on flickr. Jim Testa wrote up a great summary on his jerseybeat.com website about the whole wetard thing, aviso'hara's extra-ordinary drummer Benny will live in infamy. Needless to say if you didn't go down for this jammed packed Memorial Day Weekend's all star festivities of sleep deprivation: you haven't lived. Your not a worthy musician or rockband, poet, music writer, dj, or pimp.
