My Eyes are Just a Little Sweaty Today

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

KTiFlight of the Conchords – The Distant Future (2007)

Some months ago, I shared an album from Ylvis which reminded me of the Flight of the Conchords. I realized they haven’t been shared in this game yet. So here you go.

Just in case you didn’t know, these two guys are Australian New Zealanders actors, comedians, and musicians. They started with a radio show, which then evolved into a 22 episode HBO show. I think all of the songs on their two albums and this EP come from the two series. Continue reading

The Ocean Brine Turn into Wine

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

The Skullduggers – Staggers and Jags (2012)

And now for something completely different.

I’ve had these guys on my list for a while, and I meant to share it a couple of weeks ago (for International Talk Like a Pirate Day). So it was the perfect thing to share this week … when I couldn’t decide what else to share. Continue reading

It’s About to Get Heavy

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

The Struts – Everybody Wants (2014 2016)

This week Tim shared The Struts’ Everybody Wants … which I shared last June. And that’s okay. They really rock, and I’ll take whatever excuse to listen to them.

When they re-released this album in 2016, they changed the tracks. And then in 2017, there was a Japanese edition with a few bonus tracks. I have all of the tracks from the different versions, so on my computer it’s all one album. If there are song titles you don’t recognize because you have one version of the album or the other, I really recommend hunting down the other tracks on this album. Continue reading

Stranded on the Shore

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

This week I’m wrapping up my tour through musical children of famous artists. I’m sorry to say that I’ve been unable to find any sort of solo record from either of Ringo’s boys. That means you get a different Beatle’s kid.

James McCartney – Me (2013)

I feel like it’s fairly common for artists to have their children play on their albums (James played on Paul’s Flaming Pie), but Paul McCartney is the only artist I know of who has played on an album credited to one of his children. Maybe because a lot of guys have died before their kids started their musical careers. Continue reading

She’s the Breeze on Sunday Morning

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

This week I’m continuing my tour through musical children of famous artists.

Harper Simon – Harper Simon (2010)

Son of folk legend Paul Simon, I think Harper follows in his dad’s footsteps. Although in more recent years Paul has become a bit more experimental, I feel that Harper’s songs are very poetic and set to modern folk. There may still be some elements of country in there, but just as folk from the Vietnam War era wasn’t the same as it was 50 years earlier, Harper’s version of folk is similarly updated. Continue reading

Strange Things Happening Everyday

 

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

This week I’m taking a little break from my tour through musical children of famous artists to revisit three early rock and roll tunes. Continue reading

Get What You Deserve

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

This week I’m continuing my tour through musical children of famous artists.

Sean Lennon – Friendly Fire (2006)

Sean is more like mid-to-late-Beatles (which includes the Yoko influence) John than Julian was. It’s a bit more experimental than his brother, but not so far as Dhani Harrison. It’s hard for me to say what genre it is exactly. Continue reading
