Technically, and by technically I mean definitely, it’s Tuesday and I’m posting my #musicmonday a day late… whoops! Anyhow, here’s what’s good that I’ve been listening to.
1) Radiohead – Have you heard these guys before? They’re so rad and I love them! haha… I thought I’d make a random suggestion since most people know Radiohead like the back of their hands. But there’s one little EP that you might not know about. It’s called Airbag/How Am I Driving? and was released way back in 1998. I grabbed it when I was in high school after falling in love with OK Computer but they no longer make the EP, thus it’s rarity. That being said, if you really want to find it, use Google.
2) Gorillaz – In the build-up to the new album, which I’ll be talking about after this post, I’ve been listening to some older Gorillaz stuff. I always felt like some of their best songs were the one offs that never made it onto proper albums. On G-Sides you have Faust, on the Feel Good Inc Japan Only EP you’ve got Bill Murray and Spitting Out The Demons, and then there was the track called Hong Kong which was written for the Help: A Day in the Life compilation. All of these are amazing songs which are worth your time to check out.
3) Owen Pallett – After two months now I can still say that Mr. Pallett’s album Heartland is one of my favorites of the year. In all honesty I think the beginning of the album isn’t as strong as the end of it, so it might be hard for some people to get into the album. If that’s you, I’d suggest starting at Red Sun No. 5 and going from there.
