I love this QotSA album. The 5 music videos they put out from it have been quite spectacular as well.

For anyone who hasn't received the kickstarter teaser, Glenn Case will release his album "Throw Money" on June 14th. This is truly an amazing album and I have actually teared up listening to him realize his dream. This is the album we've been begging him to produce and whatever expectations some of us may have had of Glenn, it fucking blows them out of the water! Any of us with any influence anywhere should be pushing this towards world domination. Think Elvis Costello meets Hall & Oates. Inspired, crafted, captured and bottled. Glenn, you should feel damn proud, as I do for simply knowing you. Good job!

I would like to hear Glen's album.

I will buy it.



But I don't know what this bizarre image has to do with anything:

I think Glen's album is probably better than a songwriter meeting 2 nobodies .

Go Glen!!

This wasn't a plug for Hall & Oates, but a comparison with one of the most commercially successful pop writing duos in history. You (or I) may not like them on artistic grounds (or others), but the craft with which they produced enormous hits is relevant here, and Glenn's product is similar in many ways. Calling them "nobodies" is simply a subjective judgement. I think Glenn has it in him to achieve commercial success writing sincere pop songs with the quirkiness of the first and shine of the second reference.

Everything I've heard from the album on SoundCloud is great. It has potential to pick up a major label, if he even wants to go that route.

I wish I would have watched that, Roy. You have the coolest job! The only job I can think of that would be better than that is vagina photography, but I have no idea where to apply for such a career.
Be a pal and give us more notice next time. That would be swell. :)

I know we've touched lightly on Foxy Shazam, but I think this band is really entertaining. Real different and fun to listen to as well as watch. It's like if Paco Del Stinko wrote the lyrics and Booty Chesterfield was the band, lol. When they get picked to play on SNL, they will blow up, mark my words. I know these things.

So you're saying their lyrics are cheap and hastily written? Well...awright!

I am listening to the new Neko Case. Very excellent.

John Brodeur's new album, "Little Hopes," finally came out a few weeks ago. It's very different than his older stuff, while staying to the same excellent sensibilities that make me love his music so much.

BLT, my brother says that Foxy Shazam are amazing live, and I wish I could see that. I had a difficult time getting into their album (or is it albums? When I first looked into them, they only had the self-titled one), but that was mainly due to the production.

Paco, you're right, that new Neko Case is terrific. I listened to it yesterday at work. It might be her best solo work yet.

fluffy, thanks for the heads up on the new John Brodeur. I checked to see if Little Hopes is on Google Music All Access, and sure enough, there it is. I'm listening now. It's a little tighter and shinier than Tiger Pop, but I'm really liking it so far.

I think a person really needs to be in a certain frame of mind to get into it. The mixture of dark subject matter, pop party rock and sarcasm with a REALLY tight band that rocks! I think I enjoy them so much because it's a lot of how Dee and I think when we are making BatP music. And everyone knows Paco's dark humor. Like our song Witch Hunt, we still laugh at that song. It has a bouncy upbeat feel and Dee sings it with a bit of whimsy, yet it's very dark and sarcastic.

This Foxy Shazam song makes me start busting out laughing at the 3:28ish mark. This is why I like these guys at this time in a sea of bourgeois music flooding our ears on the daily.

I don't necessarily think that's true what's keeping me from getting into them. I adore early Electric Six; "dark subject matter, pop party rock, and sarcasm" seems to be pretty much their M.O. too. But when I was listening to Foxy Shazam's self-titled album, the main impression I got was that it was too noisy, and that in most of the songs, the cymbals especially were just too loud and grating. I figure they're just another casualty of The Loudness Wars, and that I probably would have enjoyed the album if it had been mixed and mastered with more finesse.

I got shit on by a pigeon last week. Bastards.

Anyway, I'm currently listening to the Song Fight! archive on shuffle play:

I'm tweeting the songs I find that I like here again, like I used to do:

Currently I'm rocking out to this song:

John Brodeur released an Elliott Smith tribute album, and it's fantastic.

Went to France. Bought an album. A coldwave album. This version has english subtitles so you can revel in "that Blood Simple scene set to music" feel. From last year. Dance, xmas fuckers, dance.

I wasn't sure where to put this. A guy that makes beats took my Tokin Daily theme song and remixed it. I think it's awesome! https://soundcloud.com/lasersmoke/laser ... aberry-pie
