Music for the masses

Before I start, check out Blender Mag’s list of the best music cameos on the Simpsons. Maybe you agree and maybe not — but heck, it’s a ton of awesome clips (Barry White on Whacking Day, anyone?). YouTube proves its usefulness once again.

And now! Music. I was cleaning out some of my old folders and found some good stuff. Download it all … every single one is worth at least 30 seconds of your listening time.

    The Real Tuesday Weld has a new album coming out soon. There’s even a preview mp3 to be had, either at his site or my own. It sounds completely different to his previous stuff if you ask me, but not bad either. I don’t quite know what to make of it – it’s kind of a smooth electro-ish sort of pop sound. Peculiar!

    Oh yes, I have the new song … I’m reserving opinion on the album, because as you say, it does sound a whole lot smoother. The Clerkenwell Kid does Lounge Lizard or something.

    Hi, any chance you could send the Okkervil track my way? I’d be eternally grateful!
