Heidy ho, BRP readers. How about a few songs to warm you up on this chilly Saturday?
Let's start with LCD Soundsystem. This band is coming to Philly for three, yes, three, sold out nights at the Fillmore. I'll be there for one of them, and I'm really looking forward to it. There will be plenty of dancing and grooving when LCD S is on stage. Ready to hear something? OK, one of my favorites is North American Scum. Here we go:
Here's another very cool band - The Exploding Hearts. Formed in Portland, Oregon in 2001, the band ceased to exist after three of its members were killed in a car accident in 2003. That's tragic and so very unfortunate. But through the magic of recorded music, the guys live on. I love the song Throwaway Style and think you'll dig it, too.
Do you want to keep rocking? I sure hope so. How about Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown? These guys harken back to the days of classic rock, and along with the Struts and Greta Van Fleet, were recently written up in the Wall Street Journal. Check out this tune, called Loaded Dice and Buried Money. They don't make rock like this anymore ... not!
I'm not the biggest jam band fan out there, but I do like Phish. I also like this song by O.A.R. It's called Hey Girl and it's catchy, the lyrics are simple but fun, and once you hear it, you have a hard time getting it out of your head. I like the horns!
One more? Well, fine, but just because you asked. If you want something catchy, and a weird video, I have just the thing. Fall Out Boy's Sugar We're Goin' Down has a very odd video featuring a young dude with antlers. I know, what the hell, right? Anyway, listen to the song and enjoy.
I've got to split now. Please don't weep - I'll be back shortly. And hey, there's a ton of archived stuff for you to check out! I'm still working on the Protomartyr write up, and Cheap Trick is coming to town this week, woot woot! I have lots of shows coming up and I'll be sure to inform you of my antics. Check back often as I'm trying to get back into the groove. Stay warm, start getting fired up for the best holiday of all - Thanksgiving - and have so much fun that you can't stand it.
My name is Bill, and I live in the greater Philadelphia area. I love music, and I have a lot of opinions. This site is primarily focused on music, but sometimes I get off track. I hope you enjoy.
