BETTE DAVIS AND THE BALCONETTES “Shopping On The Internet”

11 May

If you miss riot grrrls and punk rock girls who’d spit in your face and steal you beer along with your heart… then this song is for you.

They’re not Americans, they’re late 90s British punk. And we only wish we had the chance to see them play live.

It may take you more than one listen, but check the lyrics… some may stick with you perfect for those time when you could use a good ¬†laugh.

HANNI EL KHATIB “Family”

11 May

 

This dude Hanni El Khatib is a genuine rocknroll badass. And we’re damn sure glad he came along. The world needs a little more of his sort of boot-stomping wildman rocknroll. It’s good for the blood and good for the soul.

I’m sure he’ll be all over commercials as soon as you’re reading this but hell it’s still damn good music.

And this video… shit like this is the best side of globalism. One giant melange of world culture… with plenty of strange-beautiful nudity, pointless but fun guns, thrown around motorbikes and Japanese gangsters in their tight whiteys. This video has everything!

DOCTEUR L “Let My Baby Ride”

4 May

The song “Let My Baby Ride” from Leos Carax’s film “HOLY MOTORS”

You may not have the same love I have for accordions… not many people do. But this song is just undeniable fun.

It makes my gypsy soul smile hearing such a swirling, jangly tune played with such contagious enthusiasm. It’s like the flu, good luck avoiding its infectious appeal. Go ahead… try.
