music while i am in gulf shores

That’s right, this is a scheduled post for your enjoyment.

1. Unicorn Dream Attack – Jamie

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

This is an interesting 8 bit cover of Weezer’s Jamie. I still have an old tape of Ben, Blake, Wayne, Chris, and me singing and playing the song in Wayne’s old church. I heard it not too long ago and it took me back to my high school days.

2. The Slew – It’s All Over

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

The Slew is a combination of Kid Koala (Eric San), Dynomite D (Dylan Frombach), and some former Wolfmother members (Chris Ross and Myles Heskett). Kid Koala and Dynomite D were commissioned to create the soundtrack for a documentary that will no longer be made so they decided to take their creation on the road with the help of the Ex Wolfmother members. This is just a taste.

3. Canadian Wildlife – Winter’s Moon

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

This song is very slow and beautiful. Somehow the band name Canadian Wildlife is reflective of their musical style. Winter’s Moon sounds like a small song in a large open space (not unlike Canada). Oddly enough, I can’t find a website associated with this band. Let me know if you happen across it.

Any feedback on the songs… what you like/don’t like is appreciated.

elek trance video

Why I like this: Mostly because I found it randomly with a search for my son’s name, Elek. I can’t figure out whether I love this or hate it still… so it’s going in the love bucket. I don’t know why. Randomness and stupidity.

a little something to get you over the hump

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Kid Cudi is an up and coming indie Hip Hop artist from Cleveland, OH who now works in Brooklyn. You may recognize that the backup vocals are Memphis’ MGMT. Ratatat is also featured. Kid Cudi’s debut full length album is due out Sept. 15 (my birthday).

shoops2. Shoops – Move Bounce Flip

This Montreal duo’s debut “Love/Lust” is due out in the near future. According to them their music sounds like

Your girlfriend listening to Kanye West while she touches herself.

anyamarina3. Anya Marina – Move You

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Be patient with this song… give it a couple of listens and see what you think.

Musically, Marina and her producers Brian Karscig (guitarist for San Diego’s Louis XIV, who produced 10 tracks) and Britt Daniel (of beloved indie-rock band Spoon, who produced two) keep things rocking at a dynamic clip.

You can find her album Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II at Amazon.com.
