A nice eclectic mix of music this week, and it’s really piling up since these posts are coming less frequently. I typically don’t pay much mind to videos but I like the one for Rush Midnight, and of course the song is great.
There are a couple other tracks I had to post YouTube videos for, as I couldn’t find other shareable versions in my initial searching. Remember, those won’t get picked up by the exfm player, so be sure to check those out manually.
A new week and a couple more Fleetwood Mac covers. If you like the band Hum, be sure to check out Title Fight. Lastly, if you have been keeping track, Blonds has made it on the site a couple times and now their new album which comes out next week is available for streaming at Stereogum.
This week saw the passing of Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch (MCA), at the age of 48. Over the last number of days there have been many wonderfully things said about the man, the Boys, and their influence on my generation… thoughts and stories more eloquent and coherent than I could ever say or share. It’s just amazing to see the impact he/they had, and sad to hear of his passing at a relatively young age.
I could share some of my favorite Beastie Boys songs below, but I just don’t even know where to start as there are so many, and you’ve all heard them before I am sure. You can’t go wrong with Paul’s Boutique and Ill Communication (I’ve practically had them on a loop since Friday) and if you’ve somehow never given these albums a listen, do yourself a favor and check them out.
Also check out these other fantastic arists & songs I have discovered since my last post, all over the place this week so there is a little something for everyone.
