Friends Of P.
by The Rentals
(112 plays) | (0 fans)

It turns out that when the members of Weezer struck up a friendship with Ric Ocasek (who produced their self-titled debut album), they also hit it off with the Cars frontman's supermodel wife, Paulina Porizkova — the proof being this song by this Weezer offshoot group. As Ocasek explained, "I found out later that [the Rentals' Matt Sharp] had written that song about my wife. I thought the song was OK, although I thought it was a bit silly. The truth was that Rivers [Cuomo] and P were actually the ones that got along really well." https://bit.ly/3kjS11D Enjoy the video for "Friends of P.": https://youtu.be/wi-H6ohY37k

Metal Guru

T. Rex lead singer Marc Bolan explained: "It's a festival of life song. I relate 'Metal Guru' to all gods around - someone special, a godhead. I thought how God would be, he'd be all alone without a telephone. I don't answer the phone any more. I have codes where people ring me at certain times." https://bit.ly/3hHw5eW T.

Head Cheerleader
by Pom Pom Squad
(21 plays) | (0 fans)

Pom Pom Squad is an indie rock/grunge band from Brooklyn, New York. Their debut album 'Death of a Cheerleader' came out June 25th. Songwriter and vocalist Mia Berrin co-produced the album alongside Sarah Tudzin, the Los Angeles-based producer, engineer and leader of Illuminati Hotties. https://n.pr/3ejLYpW It’s a razor-sharp bite of cathartic punk that the Brooklyn four-piece’s powerhouse frontperson Mia Berrin wrote in the traumatic throes of her adolescent feminine awakening while realizing the ever-present gaze of the male patriarchy. https://pompomsquad.bandcamp.com/album/death-of-a-cheerleader

Rockit is the 7th track on the Gorillaz' 2007 album, 'D-Sides'. It was originally released in order to promote the cancelled Gorillaz side-project, "Reject False Icons". https://bit.ly/3kB9RgT The Gorillaz music video, "Rockit". The Gorillaz are walking around near Kong Studios, they seem to be going somewhere. They are menaced by floating heads of celebrities with false eyes and creepy growing tree branches. Murdoc's Pazuzu statue joins in the singing of the chorus. https://bit.ly/3wGk39V https://youtu.be/_ue714d1V6I

Herbie Hancock will be at The Paramount on Tuesday, September 21st. No doubt he will bring the keytar. https://bit.ly/36EeGO6 https://www.herbiehancock.com/ Here is the video for "Rockit": https://youtu.be/GHhD4PD75zY A vinyl single of Fab 5 Freddy's "Change the Beat" was used for scratching in the recording of this iconic single from Herbie Hancock's 1983 album 'Future Shock.' This was the first hit song to feature scratching, and for anyone not familiar with hip-hop, it was the first time they heard the sounds of a record being manipulated on a turntable to the beat. The technique was pioneered by the DJs Grand Master Flash and Grand Wizard Theodore, who performed throughout New York. Flash explained: "Scratching is just cueing the record. A deejay has to back-cue the record, but he only hears that sound himself. We felt, Why just let us hear it? Let's pull the fader halfway up while the other record's still playing and make this scratching noise, back and forth, to the beat." https://bit.ly/3wLg9wF

“VWETO III is intended for movement. It’s to be played when you birth yourself back outside after a long introspective period to get the things you need. It intends for you to be your own superhero and wants to be your theme for power.” Georgia Anne Muldrow https://georgiaannemuldrow.bandcamp.com/album/vweto-iii -- Check out KEXPs Midnight In A Perfect World with Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaime from January 2020: https://kexp.org/read/2020/1/27/midnight-perfect-world-georgia-anne-muldrow-declaime/

Remix of "Helicopter"! Deerhunter front man Bradford Cox has cited American novelist Dennis Cooper as an important lyrical influence. This heartbreaking song and its refrain of "Now they are through with me," was inspired by the writer's account of the shocking death of a teenage gay prostitute in Russia. https://bit.ly/3rk6Dzt https://youtu.be/G5RzpPrOd-4
