10 REASONS OTHER BLOGS ARE COOL, TOO

Posted: May 24, 2007 by dillion in Uncategorized

1.

The Hood Internet offers Spoon vs. Ghostface. Not sure how well this works, but mad points for the concept.

2. Copy, Right? has the Kaiser Chiefs covering “What Time is Love?” (KLF) and Len (remember them? “Steal My Sunshine”?) covering New Edition! It can’t get syrupier than that. If syrupier is a word, of course.

3. Aquarium Drunkard has some Ryan Adams and Whiskeytown rarities up for the taking. I used to like Ryan a lot, but lately he leaves me cold.

4. Ryan has some covers, too. Like that cool Jessie’s Girl cover by the treadmill band.

5. The Plugg offers Greg Laswell’s cover of Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. And it’s supergood.

6. Okay. This is a reason this blog was cool months ago. But anyway . . .

We posted on the great Mooney Suzuki’s new album a while back. Did you buy it yet? No, you didn’t. It’s not out until June 9th! The date got pushed back or something. But you should check out our old post and check out the album, too. It’s hot. As evidenced by this track:

99%-Mooney Suzuki.

Proof that some bands never stop being great. Plus, if you get it off iTunes you get 4 bonus tracks. And while I’m plugging these guys, I’ll give you some dates:

7. Covert Curiousity offers a great run-down on Spoon, in honor of the new release, including some cool and rare mp3s. This post is what blogging is all about. The only criticism I have of it is that I didn’t write it.

8. This picture:


is from Motel de Moka, where you can always find cool, eclectic mixes. Another great blogger.

9. Cable and Tweed offers some live Laura Veirs. I’m on the fence with her, but go and make up your own mind.

10. And finally . . . Check out Passion of the Weiss’ review of The Boxer. He thinks it’s The National’s best album yet.
