Quantcast

This Tuesday, August 19, Brooklyn kindie stars THE POP UPS will release APPETITE FOR CONSTRUCTION (pre-order: Amazon | iTunes), their third full-length effort, and the follow-up to 2012's excellent, GRAMMY-nominated RADIO JUNGLE (reviewed here). To mark the impending release, THE POP UPS have partnered with THE ROCK FATHER to debut "Block House" as part of their #10Songs10Days promotion. With a deliciously-80s synth-pop groove, "Block House" is a celebration of building a mighty tower of alphabet blocks - a time-honored tradition for kids everywhere. The third track on the album itself, "Block House" fits perfectly into a collection of songs that are "dedicated to the simple joy of making things with family and friends." Stream it below...

I've always been fond of Dan "The Automator" Nakamura. particularly from his work on projects such as LOVAGE, HANDSOME BOY MODELING SCHOOL and HEAD AUTOMATICA. Now, the DELTRON 3030 and GORILLAZ collaborator has announced a new pairing, GOT A GIRL - in which he pairs with actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead (DEATH PROOF, KILL THE MESSENGER). While Bulk Recordings won't be releasing their debut album, I LOVE YOU BUT I MOST DRIVE OFF THIS CLIFF NOW until July 22, check out their new single, "Did We Live Too Fast?" below...

Listen: THE FAINT - "Dress Code"

On April 8, THE FAINT will release their new album, DOOM ABUSE through SQE Music. After giving listeners a taste with "Help in the Head," the band has today issued a track that sounds straight out of a montage scene in a 1980s teen comedy. Check out "Dress Code" below, and if you dig it, pre-order the album on Amazon or iTunes.

From out of nowhere comes this little tune that you absolutely need to hear, especially if you're into (or not into) the work of TRENT REZNOR or his main creation, NINE INCH NAILS. "This is a Trent Reznor Song" comes from Freddy Scott, whose work I was not familiar with until this landed in my Facebook feed about 20 minutes ago. Yes, this is a parody, but it's also pretty damn endearing. Listen to the song in the soundcloud player below... and crank it up!

I arrived during the end of the Disco era, yet somehow MECO managed to impact my young, STAR WARS-loving mind during the late 1970s, and somehow, even in 2014, I will admit listening to "Cerrone's Paradise" (the full, 16-minute version) in it's entirety if I happen to catch it on SiriusXM's "Studio 54" channel... which I listen to on occasion between Liquid Metal, Backspin, Outlaw Country and Kid's Place Live. So what if someone wrote a disco song two decades too late, and then waited another decade plus to release it? Kindie artist MR. HARLEY just may have the answer, with the release of his new single, "I Wrote A Disco Tune (20 Years Too Late)." Listen below...
