The new album Brothers by the Black Keys is really really good. I’ll start with that.

There has been a little buzz around the first track, Everlasting Light, which has pretty much the same chord structure as T Rex’s Mambo Sun. Listen for yourself, be the judge. Both are great.

and here’s Mambo Sun by T Rex…

Who knows if the Keys had this song in mind when they wrote Everlasting Light, but I don’t really care. The album is killer, brothers.

Here’s their new music video for Tighten Up, their new single.

Surf’s Up Saturday

22 May

Although some of the more recent trends in indie rock are well represented in Surfer Blood’s new album Astrocoast, I cannot help but enjoy it. Reverb voice? Surf inspiration? Multi-percussionists?? checkcheckcheck. No matter, this is a pretty gnarly song.

nice live version minus reverb voice here

Tasty barrel time?

Maybe next time…

Something more local that happened and has me a bit salty is the Pike St. Shepard Fairey mural in Covington, KY was whitewashed on Tuesday. Destroying cool artwork does not sparkle with us here at WMWM.

I don’t know, it looks like a peace sign right up there, but that kid has an automatic weapon. Maybe there’s a hidden message somewhere. I can’t figure it out, just cover it up with white paint.  Oof.

re: Spring

19 Mar

Esteemed Reader,

Spring is nearly upon us. Act and dress accordingly. Jean shorts, tank tops and sunburns are ascendant. Bicycles are unstoppable. Smiles are contagious. Sunglasses, Sunglasses, Sunglasses. Flip-flops are just barely this side of tolerable. Barefeet are lovely. Bare bodies are lovelier. Sweaty, Sweaty, Sweaty dance parties are mandatory. Undershirts are despicable. Man-cleavage, Girl-cleavage; if you got it, flaunt it. Unbutton as far as good taste dictates and then at least one more. Don’t be afraid to get a bit nautical. Don’t be afraid to get a lot nautical. Subtlety can be wonderful. So can excess. Make something beautiful as the sun rises. Make something beautiful as the sun shines. Make something beautiful as the sun goes down. Make something beautiful even if the sun isn’t shining. When you get down to it, almost as much as we wish we were birds we wish we were fish; fly off something into the water. Vitamin D intake is not a zero-sum game. Indulge guiltlessly. Bonfires are well worth smelling like one for the next four days. A good swimsuit all but guarantees a good time. Hugs are pretty rad. Eating ice cream is totally subversive. So is love.

Your Springtime Lover,

johnpaulcurtin

Happy Tuesday!

I’m in a Chromeo-related throwback mood, maybe it has something to do with Canada taking us down in hockey, who knows. So, I’m going way, way, way, back to the video that got me hooked on them in the first place:

Maybe I should add a “Things the French-Canadians Got Right” category.
