Your Friday Five: #6
Nothing or no one/will ever make me let you down
Siouxsie Sioux turned 53 yesterday. Try not to feel old, but go ahead and shadow dance. I won’t tell. Live 1983. 1987, shoulder pads, glory .
- Speaking of Siouxsie, I love the song, “I Knew” by Lightning Dust. It sounds a bit like Siouxsie fronting Fleetwood Mac (indulge me for just one song guys). It can be found on their flawless album (which was my #2 fave album of 09) Infinite Light. Pour yourself a tasty beverage and take 9 minutes to listen to their Tiny Desk concert from NPR.
The Cinema Somnambulist is blogging his way through a bunch of “Doomed Movies”. Here he tackles the Prince filmography. “Every journey, even a purple one, has to come to an end. After subjecting ourselves to the terror of Graffiti Bridge and the accidental masterpiece that is Under the Cherry Moon, my friend Nafa and I had to complete the Prince film cycle. The thing that worried us the most was that Purple Rain would just be a good movie. How the hell are we supposed to deal with Prince just being in a good film?”
- Free Tunes Alert: You can get a free Fol Chen remix EP on EMusic. I will keep recommending these guys and girls to anyone who will listen to me.
- The New Pornographers new album is out. If you like songs that are good, then maybe you will like it. Goddamn, I love pop music. Watch. How awesome is the little swoon harmonies when they sing, “As a a rule…”? Plus, whistling. Plus, Cello in a power pop song. Plus, Neko Case.
