Big in Iceland, 2003

Sat, 11 Jun 2011 17:58:59 +0000

Three songs were all over the radio and TV when Kelly and I were in Iceland in 2003 for our honeymoon, and I find that they frequently pop into my head. “Be Faithful” by Fat Man Scoop I love the sampled from “Chic Cheer” & Black Sheep, but what gets me about this song is [...]

“Claire” by Baxter Dury

Thu, 02 Jun 2011 14:18:59 +0000

After a helping a friend set up a new blog this week, I realized it was time to revive DRNRN!, which I’d been planning to do for months now. Mostly after seeing what Kaleb’s been doing over at Dynamite Chair, I’ve been thinking of changing my approach (which had been to post single tracks from [...]

“You sold the cottage” by Martha and the Muffins

Sat, 26 Jul 2008 18:34:07 +0000

Before another month goes by, I have to make another post. I have many on deck, and a big project to procrastinate from, so I’m hoping to squeeze in a few posts this week before we go on vacation the first week of August. & on the cusp of something great is the perfect time [...]

“Subways” by Urban Verbs

Tue, 10 Jun 2008 23:06:33 +0000

Urban Verbs reunited recently. My friend Haley told me in advance. I was meaning to post this a while before Haley, outta nowhere, asked me about them. NPR has a recording of the show. A good band that you can learn about here. The fact everyone will tell you bout them is that this is [...]

“Sunny Day,” by Pigbag

Sun, 01 Jun 2008 21:55:36 +0000

Pigbag is an absurdly funky post-punk ensemble. I ripped this track (the version from the Stiff US 12″) recently for a mix I listened to while training for the 2008 Buffalo Marathon (which I ran last week and got a PR of 3:44!). It’s got all the Pigbag trappings, frenetic funky beat, horn blasts, and [...]

“And He Descended into Hell” by Microdisney

Tue, 06 May 2008 20:28:20 +0000

A strange, downtempo, twangy number from Microdisney, which feaures Sean O’Hagan of The High Llamas and Turn On (and, frequently, of Stereolab). This album will feel familiar to any High Llamas fans, as it includes many lush arrangements of strangely-worded pop songs. Plenty of banjo as well. What’s a little strange about it is that [...]

Phantom Tollbooth two-fer

Sun, 27 Apr 2008 16:33:44 +0000

A few days ago, I went on a long walk on Brooklyn in search of some clementines. I ended up getting some at a produce stand in Cobble Hill, which is separated from my neighborhood by the Gowanus Canal, a filthy, opaque body of water that fills with poop when it rains. Jonathan Lethem called [...]

“Kelly Kilogram” by Janeen Brady

Tue, 15 Apr 2008 21:49:43 +0000

Sorry for two reasons! First, I apologize for not posting for so long… I’ve been having some hardware issues lately that are keeping me from getting good recordings. Hope to have that sorted soon. So, on to the next apology: this post is only about half as good as it should be. I bough this [...]

“This Is How It Feels (robbery mix)” by the Inspiral Carpets

Sat, 08 Mar 2008 17:07:00 +0000

It’s time to get your early-90s dance on. This track is from the remix EP of the Inspirals’ downer hit single from 1990. The b-side of this ep, the “drum mix” is nearly unrecognizable as a derivative of the original single, but this version has a bunch of bit that you’ll remember. What I like [...]

3 solo works by Pere Ubu’s David Thomas

Tue, 04 Mar 2008 22:10:59 +0000

Due to some irritating computer problems across three systems, I’ve been unable to post lately. Sorry for the delay. I hope, in the mean time, you’ve found that I’ve posted many great new music blogs to the Now Rock N Roll Now! section of the sidebar. Click through to find some great tracks. Today’s post [...]
