Musee Mecanique - "Sleeping In Our Clothes"

I mostly love the intro, about 0:00-1:50. But what a mesmerizing and masterful intro it is.
"Hunger is the purest sin"

I really dig Musee Mecanique. I played a show with them when they came through oklahoma they stayed at our house and recorded a bit of a woodie guthrie song on our pro-tools set up. Really great people.

Regina Spektor - "Dance Anthem of the 80s"

Every time I think that this girl's exhausted the possibilities of what a human being can do with their voice, she pulls out something totally new and crazy and amazing sounding.  Her whole new album is fantastic, actually.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Everything Everything - "My Keys, Your Boyfriend"

Fantastic and catchy song, actually very hard to find at the moment if you're not in the UK. I did find it here.

An absolutely fucking phenomenal and, frustratingly, almost completely unknown London artist:

"Should I bring my own chains?"
"We always do..."

Everything Everything - "My Keys, Your Boyfriend"

Fantastic and catchy song, actually very hard to find at the moment if you're not in the UK. I did find it here.

I discovered some background info on this song, and the lyrics. It gets much more interesting. The band posted this description of the song on their myspace blog:

imagines what it would be like to try and have any kind of normal relationship if your country was being bombed constantly by an occupying nation, from the point of view of a self-obsessed, post-traumatic stress disordered R&B lothario

EDIT: See next post for lyrics...

Screw it, I just transcribed the lyrics myself. Used the original track, the music video, and a live in-studio video. It's a much more interesting song now...



Lucifer, you're lying dead
Crosses on the kitchen sink
Barb wire in the bathroom
I can't make new memories since

Flashbacks to the time
This shell-shocked apartment was the place
I met with your boy
It's a model thing yeah it's a model thing oh
He looked at me funny and I oh oh
Think our secret's out and I oh-oh-oh
I try to explain
But then munitions reign
And we're the epicenter oh

It's like I'm watching the A4 paper takin' over the guillotine
It's like I'm watching the A4 paper takin' over the guillotine

And I wanna know what happened to your boyfriend
Cause he was lookin' at me like whoah
Yeah right before the kitchen was a dustbowl
And tossin' me the keys and I can't forget how
Then everything just coming through the windows
And half the street was under my nails
It's like we're sitting in a Faraday cage
When the lights all fail

I fly through the walls
All pieces colliding and I
See Raymond apart
He's a-frowning now
Waggin' a finger at me boy
His knees bend the other way ah boy boy
Are you guys together honey b-b-boy
Oh but now I can't find his torso hm hm hm
I guess you're separated oh

It's like I'm watching the A4 paper takin' over the guillotine
I just wanna know...
It's like I'm watching the A4 paper takin' over the guillotine

And I wanna know what happened to your boyfriend
Cause he was lookin' at me like whoah
Yeah right before the kitchen was a dustbowl
And tossin' me the keys and I can't forget how
Then everything just coming through the windows
And half the street was under my nails
It's like we're sitting in a Faraday cage
When the lights all fail

The lights all fail
Lucifer, you're lying dead
I do believe there are more bases in sight
The lights all fail
Crosses on the kitchen sink
[Unintelligible]
Babies on the bullseye
I do believe there are more bases in sight
The lights all fail
I can't make new memories since 'ries since 'ries since
[Unintelligible]

And I wanna know what happened to your boyfriend
Cause he was lookin' at me like whoah
Yeah right before the kitchen was a dustbowl
And tossin' me the keys and I can't forget how
Then everything just coming through the windows
And half the street was under my nails
It's like we're sitting in a Faraday cage
When the lights all fail

And now everybody gotta go hungry
And everybody cover up their mouths
And I haven't seen the body count lately
But lookin' at your faces it must have been bad
And everybody answers their phone calls
But people say the army's on fire
It's like we're sitting with a parachute torn
But the airport's gone
"Hunger is the purest sin"

Yeah, I'm really grateful to you for mentioning that song - it's become the tune of my winter, and I've been introducing everyone to the band. It wasn't until I'd listened to it a couple of times that I realized the video is essentially a pretty literal translation of the lyrics: guy meets up with friend to tell him he's been sleeping with his girlfriend, then they start getting bombed.

The reference in their description to an "R & B lothario" lends more credence to my theory that they're referencing R Kelly's Trapped in the Closet with the line "Cos he was lookin' at me like 'whoa'" (in a similar moment of stand-off between two guys over the issue of an adulterous woman in TITC Kelly sings, "Then he stepped to me, I'm like 'whoa'".)
"Should I bring my own chains?"
"We always do..."

"Bike" by Hotrats (early Pink Floyd cover). Produced by Nigel Godrich, apparently. Fantastic song!
