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?
