Me, Myself, and iPod 5/19/10: Arson never sounded so catchy

All right, time to get back to pimping tunes I like, rather than making examples of fame whores. And this first one still has me dancing.

School of Seven Bells – Babelonia
I could listen to this one all day. Hypnotic, My Bloody Valentine-inspired dream pop, with a gorgeous female voice in the lead? Can’t wait to hear the full-length, due in July.

Futurebirds – Johnny Utah
Hey, they named a song after Keanu Reeves’ character in “Point Break.” What’s not to love?

Admiral Radley – I Heart California
I always thought Grandaddy was slightly overrated, but this project, which features main Grandaddy Jason Lytle with members of Earlimart, is off to a good start.

Awolnation – Burn It Down
Little Richard fronting Cash Cash? Whatever it is, it’s what I wish the Eagles of Death Metal sounded like, and where I wish more new bands would draw inspiration.

Gordon Voidwell – Ivy League Circus
Pretty damn funky for a guy named Gordon.

Parallels – Find the Fire
Hey, every generation needs its Quarterflash, right? Or is it Animotion?

Pete Francis – Glue
I don’t know anything about Mr. Francis, but this song reminds me that I need to pull out Gus Black’s Word of Mouth Parade and give it a spin.
