Music: Cymbals Eat Guitars, Bill Frisell, Deadbeat, Death, Lonely Island

A few joints I’ve found trolling iTunes, and some other spots.

Cymbals Eat Guitars - Why Are There Are Mountains

Cymbals Eat Guitars - Why Are There Mountains

Dope album.  Kind of shoegazey at times, sometimes hard rock, sometimes poppy – a lot of the times in the same song.  Just a nice mixture from song to song.  One of the better pick-ups for the year.

Bill Frisell - Unspeakable

Bill Frisell - Unspeakable

This dude’s album is kinda weird and dope….dope samples, strings, horns, it’s like jazz, but not really.  I have no clue how to pin it down, so I’m not going to try.  It’s just worth your time to find.

Deadbeat - Roots and Wire

Technical dub.  Plain and simple really.  For those that like dub and dubstep, like me, you’ll prolly like this selection.  Heavy and layered well.  Like the second track says – “…it’s the deep structure of reggae…”

Death - ...For The Whole World To See

Death - ...For The Whole World To See

This 1974 release is my absolute favorite release of 2009, just passing PPP’s Abundance.  This album is nuts and the story is hella interesting:  3 African American brothers from Detroit, who were in an R&B act, get the punk bug from listening to MC5 and The Stooges – and made this ill album.  It’s said that Clive Davis offered them a deal, but they refused because Clive want them to change their name.  It’s good to see classic material being uncovered for our ears.

The Lonley Island - Incredibad

The Lonely Island - Incredibad

HILARIOUS!  It’s that simple.  “J**z In My Pants” – classic.  Has all the classic songs from SNL included, plus other equally funny tracks.
