Dog Fashion Disco: “Envy the Vultures” from the album “Sweet Nothings”

Pretty sure this genre is called “eargasm.”

Antemasque: “Providence” from the album “Antemasque”

Do you want to sit in my basement and stare at a lava lamp and listen to this whole album with me? Of course you do. Don’t be stupid.

Peeping Tom: “Five Seconds” [feat. Odd Nosdam]

The fifth month of the year seems like the perfect time to share my favorite songs featuring the number five. And who better than Mike Patton to kick off…well, anything, really?

Truthful Tuesday - I wrote a song once.

Holy Molar: “Cavity Search”

If you don’t like what’s going on in this first track, you’ll absolutely hate what goes on in the next four. For me, it’s just what the doctor ordered!

Foxy Shazam: “Introducing Foxy”

This song shouldn’t have you dancing in your seat. It should have you flailing! *starts a pit in my living room*

Electric Six: “After Hours”

This month is dedicated to my favorite first tracks. I really appreciate when the first song on an album is like a musical punch to the face - getting my attention and letting me know exactly what I’m in for. I could fill the entire month with just Electric Six songs, but I decided to go with the opener from my favorite album of theirs. Enjoy!

Music Monday - High School Reunion

Queen: “Death on Two Legs”

The best diss track you’ve probably never heard.

Dead Kennedys: “Kill the Poor”

Because if you’re going to get into punk rock as a teenager, you might as well get into the best!

Nirvana: “Lounge Act”

If you’re Gen X or younger and you never had a Nirvana phase, were you even a teenager?

Pixies: “All Over the World”

I got “Bossanova” and “Doolittle” at the same time and both albums blew my young, impressionable mind. I was so obsessed, that for Christmas that year my parents got me a bass guitar because I wanted to play and sing just like Kim Deal.

Eventually those dreams gave way to my natural inclination toward the keyboard, but rumor has it that some days you can still find me standing on my bed, air-strumming and singing my little alternative heart out.
