More music picks for your Monday. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music. Just note: any prices we quote are accurate as of when this post goes up.
First off we lead with Wolf Gang and “The King and All of His Men.” This is a pretty nice acoustic version…but please subscribe to the Mahogany Sessions, whatever they are, so they can fix the focus problems on their camera.
And one I’ve been meaning to post for a while now–just kept getting shelved for some odd reason. The Modest Mouse song “Convenient Parking” as covered by Sun Kil Moon. The album is Tiny Cities (made up entirely of Modest Mouse covers) and yes, it’s available from Amazon on CD–but the MP3 is just $4.99 and that’s way, way cheaper than the hard copy. So yeah. It’s also available on Spotify.
Next to that: the Mexican ska band, Panteon Rococo, with “Punk-O.” That’s from their 2002 album CompaÃ±eros Musicales. Again, horns. You know I’m just a sucker for horns. That album is only available as a CD from Amazon. Other albums of theirs are available on Spotify.
And as I’ve mentioned on the latest Sound Board, I’ve become sucked into the world of dubstep…hence the inclusion of “Scorpions” from Nero. An excellent album that helps me think. The album Welcome Reality is available from Amazon as both a CD and MP3–although the MP3 route (which I took) was only $4.99. It’s also available on Spotify.
And next to that, we have The Submarines, covering The Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Just Like Honey” from their new EP, The Shoelaces. The EP is available as an MP3 download for just $4.95. Or the EP is on Spotify here.
And last but not least, apparently The Cramps have a new vinyl set of their early singles that’s hit, entitled File Under Sacred Music. Lovely. So that’s an excuse to post “Domino,” yes? Yes.
The set sounds awesome: “Released as a single CD and a limited-edition box set with ten 7″s. The vinyl box set contains six replica sleeves and four new sleeves especially designed for this edition, also reproduced in the CD booklet.” But it’s pricey. Their music is available on Spotify as well.
