Some Music I Liked This Week


If nude buns make you uneasy, then you may just want to listen to this track from liv instead of watching the video. Both the video and song transport you back to the late '60s or early '70s with their illustrations and harmonies, respectively. liv includes Lykke Li and members of Miike Snow and Peter Bjorn and John.


American Wrestlers

According to a press release for this tune, the title and inspiration is derived from a common subject line in spam email. That's the kind of inspiration I can relate to since we switched email servers at work. If you need to "fully restore incontinence without risky surgery," I can forward you some useful advice.

American Wrestlers are set to release their second album, Goodbye Terrible Youth, in November. If you like the tune, you can drive down to Omaha, Nebraska on December 1 and see them at Slowdown.



My interest in this track can be summed up in the experience of my first listen:

[See artwork.]
"Cool animal tongue."
[Press play.]
"Sweet Casio beat."
[Guitar comes in at :33]
"Ah, that's groovy."
[Vocals come in at 1:23]
"Oh, Ok. Talk rock. It fits, I guess."
[Dude starts screaming at 2:13]
[Post it online.]

The song is by HMLTD (formerly Happy Meal LTD).
