It's Cool to Know Nothin'!

I am totally totally obsessed with the new Kaiser Chiefs single "Never Miss a Beat". It's loud, crunchy and very sing-along-able. Unfortunately, I am having my own economic crisis and I don't see the end anytime soon, so the best I can hope for is the Amazon gift certificate fairy to visit me in the middle of the night.

Then I got to thinking about all the other cool music out there that I do not own.

1. Bob Mould- he put a CD months ago. For those of you not in the know, Bob is a fantastic musician who was a part of the post-punk band Husker Du in the '80's and then power pop band Sugar in the '90's. He has integrity.

2. Vampire Weekend- cute white nerds from NYU that make catchy sorta ska like danceable songs. Check out the new single "Kids don't Stand a Chance".

3. Death Cab for Cutie- been around for years, mopey stare at yr shoes music. The new CD came out at the beginning of the year and I have been dying to hear it in it's entirety.

4. The Ting Tings- snotty British boppy sound. Good stuff!

There are thousands of others that I cannot name as I don't have enough room or time. I'm embarrassed to say there is stuff out from 10 + years ago that I haven't purchased yet (Yeah Yeah Yeahs). And the all the stuff I had on cassette that I never converted over (The Clash, mother fuckin' Danzig). Where are you Amazon fairy?

My death metal loving husband is obsessed with the Ting Tings. It's weird seeing him sing along to "that's not my name."

Check out TV On The Radio - "Return to Cookie Mountain" or their new one "Dear Science" They are f'ing incredible! Also, finally scored a copy of the 1994 classic by The Toadies, "Rubberneck!" Get that yesterday you!
