Three that I've been liking recently:
- "The Last High," the Dandy Warhols (YouTube). (Note that when I link to YouTube it's for the song not the video; indeed I recommend queuing it up and then putting it in the background, so that the video doesn't affect your opinion of the song.) This reminds me a bit of the Afghan Whigs in 1965/"Lost in the Supermarket" terrority, slinky pop-rock about dysfunctional relationships. Can anyone tell me if this typical of their stuff? We have two other songs of theirs that doesn't sound much like it at all, more guitar-ish.
- "A Million Ways," Ok Go and Bonerama (YouTube). Many things are better with a horns section, and this is one of them.
- "Devil Take My Soul," Son of Dave (featuring Martina Topley Bird) (iLike, possibly only a sample). Catchy R&B.
What are you listening to lately?
