Music of the Sphere

Hope this pic don't bug ya. (Yuk.)
All righty-dighty, here we go with the third and final post of recent finds at my favorite blogs. (I'd been cranially concocting a dark, brooding, cynical intro, but opted instead for chirpy. I guess I've been broody because I've been worried this blog has seemed more like a catalog or grocery list or something. Actually, if I could find a grocery where they had tuneage this good, I'd definitely shop there. Okay, the hardest part of this post is now done.) Thanks, bloggers, for letting us sample whatcha got. Choip.

The Jesus and Mary Chain - April Skies - 5 Acts

The Bridge Gang – London Sky Tonight (demo) – Nothing But Green Lights - This one plunked my twanger again on a drive last week.
MGMT - Kids - Red Blondehead - So did this one, which I actually posted previously, but so what?


M83 - Graveyard Girl - Quarter Life Party
Taxipop9 - Pop Trash & You Thrill Me To Death - Coast Is Clear

Ramones - I Want You Around - Bleedin' Out - Do I evah! (Want you around.)

Music of the Sphere

We tend naturally toward embarrassment, but the musical riches we've gathered today burn us scarlet. We could lay 39 supergroovies on you right here and now, no questions asked, but fear that might be excessive. So get ready for several days of rapid-fire MOTS posts so you won't miss a single song. (Hosted sampleables often do get taken down, you know.) We'll begin with a couple of new blogfriends who don't know us, to wit:

Sheridan Dupre X, Big B, Mike, and Emmett over at Art Decade. . .

The Beatles - Thank You Girl - Art Decade - The first two words of this song title are pretty much what we want to say to all these generous, hardworking hosterposters.
The Byrds - It's All Over Now, Baby Blue (1st Version) & Lover Of The Bayou (Live) - Art Decade
The Damned - New Rose - Art Decade

. . .and Matt over at Perceptions. Delusions.

The Kinks - Better Things - Perceptions. Delusions.
The Ramones - I Don't Care (single) - Perceptions. Delusions.

Eric over at CYSTSFTS is up to Post #15 in his excellent series, "It came from the nineties." Here are some of the ones we like best, along with several from other posts.

Ash - Kung Fu - Can You See The Sunset From The Southside?
The Lemonheads - Alison's Starting To Happen & Confetti - Can You See The Sunset From The Southside?
Screaming Trees - Nearly Lost You - Can You See The Sunset From The Southside?


We'll be Bach.
