So today I was eating lunch here in Bangkok, when all of a sudden The Good, The Bad & The Ugly came on. So here I am posting these intro titles because they are so damn hot. Produced in 1966, there is also a Spanish version: El Bueno, El Feo, El Malo.
The Raveonettes “Lust Lust Lust”
I heard the Raveonettes late one night when some music channel had those shows where they would play new videos by upcoming artists. Would have been in 2003 and the video was for “Attack of the Ghost Riders” I really think they are amazing. This album is no exception.
Beach House “Devotion”
Their new lp is dang good, kinda want to say it’s better than their last, I could be wrong.
Fleet Foxes “Sun Giant EP”
Travis suggested this EP one day. Think its has that spirit of the Beach Boys. Unexpected.
The Nostalgia 77 Octet “Weapons of Jazz Destruction”
Amazing group. They can do no wrong in my eyes. I buy almost everything they do. If you are into real jazz, you should check this.
Build an Ark “Dawn”
I was so happy when I heard this was coming out. Even happier when I heard it. Spiritual Jazz today? Yep. It’s good and very real. My personal favorite right now. Carlos Nino for president.
Erykah Badu “New Amerykah Part 1”
can’t decide if it is her best or not. It’s dang good. You can never beat her “Green Eyes” track on “Mama’s Gun” but this lp is essential if you are into her at all.
Being in Thailand, I sometimes miss the circuit of some pop things (music videos for example), which doesn’t bother me either. But last night while at the gym I caught this Mika video. I found it a nice blend of Milton Glaser meets a less perverse Keiichi Tanaami. Nice to see some of these artists influence being brought back and included into a modern music video.
