The Cardigans – Hanging Around

I’ve been having 90s flashback danceparty recently and dug into some old Cardigans. I saw them in D.C. back in the day and they rock the hell out. This video was inspired by Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. It’s awesome!

((Sounder)) – Daily I will Calculate the Distance

This song came up on my Pandora, and I thought I’d heard it before, but I couldn’t recall where and then I couldn’t find anything about this band on Wikipedia or anything. I found a Bandcamp page with these tags and that is all I know: alternative, ambient, classic rock, folk, indie, post-punk, Austin.

Good stuff. I’d like to hear more if I can dig it up.

#musicmonday Ween – Object

Ween – Object

A creepy little ditty by Ween made creepier with a fan-video featuring movie baddies.

Lyrics after the cut

You’re just an object to me.
I’d like to get to know you better.
Paste you across, my body, you’re just an object to me.
You’re just a piece of meat.
And I am a butcher.
I love you better, love you forever, you’re just an object to me.
Why, sit in the shade?
Drink what we made from a lover’s cup. Dreams don’t always come, when you fall asleep, you’re just an object to me.
I’m gonna do something wrong.
No bodies gonna like it.
But I’ve got my pride, and my time isn’t free, you’re just an object to me.
You’re just an object to me.
I feel a little better.
They found your sweater.
You’re just an object to me.

Datarock – True Stories

this song bubbled up on my play list again after a long hiatus. From the lyrics to the key changes to the world beat and jerky rhythms it’s a near flawless pastiche of a Talking Heads song.

#Musicmonday – Jasper and His Robot Heart

On Friday we had the pleasure of having Jasper and His Robot Heart play an instore at Riverside Art & Supply Co. We cleared out a corner of the shop and stayed open late during the UrbanAir festival (an Airstream caravan that spent the weekend on Main Street, Eaton Rapids). The music was awesome and we look forward to having them back to play again soon. Here are a few of the songs (My apologies for the coughing 4 year old in the background of all these, Jonah was just getting over a cold.)

Jasper and His Robot Heart – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Jasper and His Robot Heart – Hearts and Thoughts

Jasper and His Robot Heart – Can’t Hardly Wait


One of the many Airstreams on display at UrbanAir… excited to see them again next year!

#Musicmonday – Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams

Filed under: dance,music monday,music video — Tags: , — Tod @ 2:59 pm

The other night Corey and I were up late reliving old “New Wave Hits of the 80s” compilations we had when we were wee teens and how those specific mixes were instrumental in shaping our tastes today. We both agreed that Sweet Dreams by The Eurythmics was an all-around flawless 80s song.

Fast forward to this morning someone was blasting this song from their car at the intersection while we loaded more displays into the shop. I like it when the universe provides a soundtrack. Who am I to disagree?


Annie Lennox was the second caricature I did for my regular Column Quote puzzles back in 2010.

Foreigner – Juke Box Hero

While Corey was away at the Cursive show, Jonah and I rocked out to Foreigner. This song is pretty much flawless.

Trailer Trash Tracys – You Wish You Were Red

Heard this song on The Impact… and in classic Impact fashion, I heard it every other time I turned on that radio station. I don’t know that I would expect a band called Trailer Trash Tracys to sound like Mazzy Star, but have a listen and tell me what you think! I like it!
