Friday Music

After a couple of weeks on hiatus, Friday Music is back. I'm already all hopped up on caffeine, so I'm going to take this opportunity to hang out with Social Distortion for a while today. After that? Well, it's up to you of course, so you tell me....

B - You know me and poppy punk stuff, so I guess this isn't a big surprise. But, I really like the new Fall Out Boy album Infinity on High. I've got it in my iTunes if you want to give it a shot.

hoop: Thanks! I'll finish Social D's Prison Bound first, then I try Fall Out Boy. I've heard of those guys a lot, but I don't know if I've ever heard their music.

how 'bout a lil INTERPOL?

SleekPelt said...

hoop: Wow, I'm very surprised by this album. Some of it is actually very cool, and some of it is a bit turd-muffinish, I think, but it's way more creative in general than I expected. I'll listen to it a few more times to see if the weaker songs grow on me. And full props to the Leonard Cohen-"Hallelujah" reference.

anon: Indeed, Interpol it is. Very nice suggestion for this Friday afternoon.

I'm on a Gram Parsons kick; including covers like "Sin City" from both Beck and Uncle Tupelo. There ain't nothing like the Grievous Angel!

SleekPelt said...

chud: Always such a pleasure to see you at RtN, pal. My Gram Parsons Pandora station is kicking. We're starting with "A Song for You." Thanks for the suggestion.

tine b: There are some names here I'm not familiar with; thanks, I love new stuff. I think I'll check out Candi Staton and Mugison this afternoon.

Uhhh. Next Friday, If I remeber I'll have something real cool.

SleekPelt said...

tine b: I was a bit concerned about Candi Staton at first, 'cause the first song sounded a bit discoish for my tastes, but she followed that up with some very nice, soulful songs.

Mugison, on the other hand, is amazing! Very much up my alley and I can't wait to hear more. Thanks!

SleekPelt said...

anon: Silversun Pickups are pretty cool. They have a bit of a Smashing Pumpkins thing going on, and they also remind of a band I was into for a while called Jealous Sound.

josh: Feel free to leave it on this thread -- I'll check it next week too.

Thanks I posted. All the rats are not abandoning the ship, count on this rat to ride out the storm. JW

josh williams said...

Is it Friday? Boy did this week fly, well I'll have some suggestions next Friday. Have a great weekend! JW

josh: I'm going to Millville this week, so I'm afraid Friday Music will be on hiatus once again. I'm always taking requests, though.
