Another Swinghouse Post

You know what’s cool? Those swing band from the fifties. They were cool. You know, the style of music you’d imagine yourself hearing while wandering through a post-apocalyptic Nevada Desert, some broad singin’ at you over the radio to go get a job in order to fund her expensive lifestyle. Which was okay, because she was your broad, and you were wearing a suit, and because you were wearing a suit you could easily make all the money you and your wife needed. Of course, this didn’t turn out to be the way things went, because one of the following occurred: Continue reading

Sounds: Placebo

I’ve been listening to Placebo recently, starting with their self-titled and now Without You I’m Nothing, their second. I’ll talk about the second, as it’s newer, and in my opinion, better. And as my opinion is, in my opinion, better than yours, it’s also your opinion.

And I think that I may have damaged the disk last time I had it running at home. Well, not me. The dog knocked over the XBox.

Sounds – Eve 6, The Society Islands

Eve 6, where have you been all my life?Eve 6 - Horrorscope

I stumbled upon their “Horrorscope” album about, oh, two days ago and WHY DID NOBODY TELL ME ABOUT THESE PEOPLE. I mean, this is, what, eleven years old? I mean, I’m not going to say that it sounds brand-new, but I’d argue it doesn’t sound it’s age. That said, I still don’t mind The Stroke’s This Is It, so go figure. Continue reading
