Like Girl Talk but with much more enjoyable artists. A lot of notable indie-rock bands are featured, two of my favorites TMBG and Neutral Milk Hotel are included. I give this album two thumbs up based on those two inclusions but there are so many other great moments. Highly recommended.

Hip-Hop, Punk Rock

This might seem like a left field post but let me explain. I used to play a lot of Tony Hawk games; one of the songs, “California Babylon”, was featured in the soundtrack. I loved that song and this album is the holder.

From Wikipedia: The group’s music is a combination of hip hop, reggae, drum n bass, dub, and punk. Although many are used sparingly throughout the album, punk and rap remain as the most prominent styles. Lyrically, Rob Aston describes their songs as ranging from topics such as murder (“Quick Death”) to the passing of a loved one (“Sad But True”) to failed friendships (“We Trusted You”).

After the release of their first album, The Transplants briefly disbanded in 2003, due to all members being involved in their own projects, including Rancid and Blink-182. Then in 2004, they reunited to record their second album (Haunted Cities) before going on hiatus again.

One of the best of ’09. What else can you expect from a classic band that continually releases consistently good content? I will say that this is their best since 2002’s Summer Sun (that album is a masterpiece, I don’t care what anyone thinks). Every song is refreshing and the album rolls perfectly. Download it, now.

P.S. sorry for the lack of posts from me, I’ve been doing personal stuff and just haven’t been up to posting.

It’s been way too long since I last uploaded an album.  Now, I’m sure everyone knows “Mr. Blue Sky”.  But the fact of the matter is that they’ve made ALOT of other great songs.  Jeff Lynne is a truly exceptional singer and songwriter.  It has a similar feel to other 70’s rock bands, but don’t be thrown off by that.  This albums is very acessible and a perfect listen for someone who wants to get into ELO’s music.

THIS ALBUM IS IN 320kbps. IT’S A CERTIFIED WINNER IN MY BOOK!

Stand-Up

Thanks to our friends from Shock Mountain for this.

This album is one of the best stand-up albums I’ve ever heard. Black tells stories with his tongue in cheek sense of humor. I really don’t know what else to say, just take a listen.

Black Lips Discography

Filed under: Albums — Teddy @ 9:10 pm

Perhaps it’s time to hop on board if you haven’t already.

“Playing garage-flavored punk rock with a Southern accent, a messed-up and bluesy undertow, and the gleefully destructive impact of a 15-year-old with a bag of firecrackers, the Black Lips are an Atlanta-based combo who after their debut in 2000 soon developed a reputation as one of the Peach State’s wildest bands.” -All Music Guide

This just leaked and it’s already contender for album of the year. The lyrics are raw, the music is powerful, and it’s all around really damn good.

See that Mike Doughty post two places down? Listen to that album and then this album or vice-versa, your mind will be blown. This album has hip-hop qualities and when they are placed with lyric master Doughty magic happens. This is also the time period he was into hard drugs so take that as you will.

This man is the Sufjan Stevens of geek-rock. He plays a load of different instruments and sings about how he wants to be city hall and loads of other topics. He also makes the Toothpaste For Dinner comic you’ve most likely seen somewhere on the net. Recommended for fans of Jonathan Coulton.

Mike Doughty was once the leader of white-boy hip-hop/funk inspired super group Soul Coughing. Now he makes albums under Dave Matthew’s label, hell, he is backed by Matthew’s band on this album; and you know what, it works perfectly. This album is nearly jammy and oh my what a mistake that would have been, however Doughty makes it his own with his recognizable voice and clever lyrics. Actually clever lyrics is an understatement, this man has a talent for wordplay. This is what Dave Matthews could be and this is what Dave Matthews SHOULD be, if he were copying Doughty’s style, well I would be happy to call myself a DMB fan.
