Xiu Xiu

First The XX, then jj, now Xiu Xiu. Who's next, Duran Duran? I actually really dig this song. If you think this video is somewhat disturbing (if not somewhat erotic), check out the one for the title track Dear God, I Hate Myself. Click on the title for more info.

Xiu Xiu: Gray Death - Watch more Videos at Vodpod.

Best Coast

Here's nice short tune in the vein of The Raveonettes. Great song title. Beautiful video, which is from the French film Un Homme Et Une Femme. Beautiful car, beautiful woman. Click on the title to learn more about Best Coast and their self-described surf/pop/gospel sound.

Diane Court: I love you. How many more times do I have to say it?
Lloyd Dobler: One more would be nice.
Diane Court: I love you... please. I love you.

Storm Redux

At least our weather maps are accompanied by music. This album was on my most-played list in high school. I was a HUUUGE Big Country fan. RIP Stuart Adamson. I don't expect anyone to listen to the whole 6:22, but I don't care. Seems appropriate for our latest me·te·o·ro·log·i·cal event...

This is a mesmerizing down-tempo instant early Song-of-the-Year nominee. Partial cover/dub of My Life by The Game and Lil Wayne.

And how can you beat that tasty outro? I absolutely love these types of covers - the sexy chanteuse covering a classic - lounge style.

Check out The Januaries and The Cardigans each cover Black Sabbath, Paranoid and Iron Man, respectively.

The Concretes cover of The Stones' Miss You.

PS I Love You

This song and video are borderline classic. Fat guy jamming with clouds and lightning bolts on his face. There is something about this song the more and more I listen to it. And the more and more I listen to it, the more I want to listen to it. It's nice and short, over half of which is music. PS - I love my codas..
