Glass Candy - Rolling Down The Hills
"I dunno why but I've been on a feel good trip lately. Any music I listen to has to have a beat and has to induce some kind of jerky physical response. This record does exactly that. I'm not a good dancer so the jerky response thing works really well for me. I don't know much about Glass Candy other than that they formed in 1996 in Portland, Oregon and they really dig disco. I'll be checking out their catalogue though and if they have some fun stuff you can bet I'll be posting it."
Gossip - Standing In the Way of Control
"I am not going to use this forum to comment on Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto's appearance. If I choose to do so it will be via Twitter, thank you very much. Besides, as a musician I appreciate good effort by my peers regardless of their person. Beth has an AWESOME voice and kind of reminds me of a Janis Joplin with much less grit [and talent, ultimately]. I use that comparison loosely, there will never be another Janis. I'm just trying to point you in the right direction here. So now that I've thoroughly bashed the Gossip and their lead singer feel free to enjoy their truly amazing record LOL."
Spank Rock - What It Look Like (Todd Edwards Remix)
"I can't lie: if you remix a Spank Rock record I will listen to it. Doesn't that just make me a loyal fan though? Nothing wrong with that. This mix gets right into it with the drums setting the tone up front and it's all uphill from there. There is some impressive stuff going on in here especially on the hook! And just when you think the record is over you 'Apple+Tab' it over to iTunes only to see that there's another 2:19 to go! POW!"
