Eric Fensler

I listened to a funny podcast interview with the guy to did the GI overdubs. Here you can listen to the podcast:

Here is something from Eric's newer project, TRS-80:

Foetus - Time Marches On

This song might be my new favorite song. Just heard them today for the first time, they've been around since the 80s, their old stuff is hard core noise rock, with industrial vocals.

The Prodigy Invaders Must Die

The new Prodigy album comes out March 2, 2009. I like this new song they released, called Invaders Must Die, also the same name of their upcoming album. Why did they name it Invaders Must Die?

Armand Van helden - "When the lights go down"

A great house track with rock guitars. The video features characters from your favorite childhood books. This is what happens in the Library after dark.

M.I.A. - "PAPER PLANES" cover-samples Clash - "Straight to Hell"

When I first heard this song, I thought it was an awesome mashup of M.I.A. and the clash. But it's not a mashup, this song is on her awesome album. In this video, two of beastie boys make a cameo, see if you can spot them.

I eventually listened to the Clash song "Straight to Hell" and the M.I.A. "PAPER PLANES" back to back, and realized that they did not sample the Clash, but covered the riff, so it's like a cover-sample.

Here is the original Clash song:

Now you can play them back to back in the comfort of your home or office.

Rock on!

Benny Benassi - Satisfaction

Original artsy video that has a Kraftwerk aesthetic to it:

Here is the sexy hot version, girls with power tools!

If you want another sexy video, check out the video for Simian Mobile Disco - 'Hustler', embedding is disabled for this video, but you can click the link

Bonde Do Role - 'Office Boy'

Fun music from Brazil, sort of falls in the M.I.A. genre of music.

Cloud Cuckooland

It's fun new music inspired by old timey music. You know, sort of like Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Watch out for musicans, those sneaky bastards.

This video would be cool even if they did not own a beat down old 1980s Volvo station wagon like I use to own.

Groovy Dancing Girl to Daft Punk's Stronger

This is a classic fan video.

How does she dance so fast? How was that done? She played the song very slow while dancing and filming, then while editing the video, they sped up her movements and played the song at real time. Got it? Now go make your own fan video. DIY.

Hot Chip - "Over and Over"

For me, this song ranks up there with New Order's Blue Monday. This song is that good. It just gets better with repeated listenings.

And here is fan a video, the song is sped up a bit. Fan videos are the democratization of the World that the interwebs are supposed to bring us. Rock on!

Her sunglasses remind of some famous sunglasses:

Datarock - Fa Fa Fa

Warning: This song might be your new favorite song. At one point in this song, about 2 minutes and 21 seconds, my ears go cross eyed with musical joy. Maybe it's just me, but try it one for size and tell me what you think.

Leslie and the Lys - "How we Go Out"

Uh. I can't explain this, you just have to watch it. But I can say my favorite lyric of this song is "...and I am scrap booking everything we do."

Original UpRock!

So I guess this how some danced in the 50s. Dancing like this while Jack Kerouac was on the Road.
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!”

- Jack Kerouac

Music DJ Z-Tripp.

My Drive Thru - Santogold, Julian Casablancas, N.E.R.D produced by Pharrell

I can't stop pushing the reply button on this video and nodding my head while standing in front of my computer. The video is sponsored by Converse, so it's an all star video for Converse all stars.

Santogold rocks.

Yo! Gabba Gabba - "Party In My Tummy"

Shows for kids have gotten a lot hipper than when I was a kid, Yo! Gabba Gabba has stuff so cool even parents could like it. This breakbeat groove is infectious, makes me dance in front of my computer.

Other episodes of the show have Biz Markey teaching kids how to beat box.

Los Campesinos - You! Me! Dancing!

Here is a fun punky pop band. The video reminds me of 80's video games and Futurama in some odd way.

But what is even better, is the fan video made for this song. These girls are barefoot on a suburban driveway while there is snow on the ground. At points, like when one is lying down on the ground, I am not sure what they depicting; this weirdness makes it all the more interesting.

Von Iva

Von Iva, an all female band from San Francisco. The lead singer has an amazingly deep bluesy/soulful voice for a white girl. The song kind of cracks me up because it's someone from San Francisco singing about how Los Angles is killing someone. Typical SF vs. LA rivalry, but I don't think the song was intended to diss LA.

Vacation video of trip to Los Angeles Venice Beach, Music by Soft Tigers - Mr. Ice Cream

Our trip to LA LA land for a friends wedding. Visited Getty Museum and Venice beach. I took the videos on my Samsung SCH A990 3.2 Megapixel mobile phone. While on the vacation I was thinking about what songs I could play in the background, it was very hot, and we ate ice cream often, so I thought Soft Tigers - Ice Cream Man. Thanks to JJ at the Paste Mob blog for for turning me on to this song.

Pirate Cat Radio Now Has a Cafe Too

Pirate Cat Radio, one of my favorite online radio stations, and a favorite pirate terrestrial station at 87.9 FM in the Mission district of San Francisco, now has a cafe located at 21st and Florida. I had an excellent iced coffee there, and could look through a big glass window to see the DJ studio. I talked to Monkey who was very knowledgeable about the station, and he gave me some tips on my own internet streaming aspirations.

I found myself watching this video a few different times over a few days to study and understand what was going on. For some reason it fascinates me.
