[BEST SONG EVER] Riff Raff "Jody 3 Moon"

[BEST SONG EVER] Riff Raff “Jody 3 Moon”

  I guess this is technically more of a skit than a song but who cares because really we should be referring to it as a goddamn masterpiece. “Jody 3 Moon” by Riff Raff, from the forthcoming album Neon Icon (out tomorrow on Mad Decent), is so good that I have stopped my three day...
[BEST SONG EVER] Merchandise "Figured Out", Plus a Mini-Interview with Carson Cox About How He's Probably Stalking Me

[BEST SONG EVER] Merchandise “Figured Out”, Plus a Mini-Interview with Carson Cox About How He’s Probably Stalking Me

When I discover a song I love, like really, truly, achingly love, it encircles me like a hug, tender but firm, and doesn’t let go for a long, long time, whispering its lyrics into ear and stroking my hair with its melodies. I will listen to it thousands of times, until the words, which were...
[BEST SONG EVER] Wreck & Reference "Corpse Museum"

[BEST SONG EVER] Wreck & Reference “Corpse Museum”

Oops…Wreck & Reference Did It Again: BREAKING NEWS: One of my current favorite bands, Wreck & Reference, is readying their new full length album ‘Want’ (via The Flenser) and they’ve just premiered the first single. Holy fuck – it is intensely epic and terrifying per usual. It sounds like they’ve sampled a tornado ripping through a...
[BEST SONG EVER] Cuckoo Lander "Dumb Dee Diddy Dumb"

[BEST SONG EVER] Cuckoo Lander “Dumb Dee Diddy Dumb”

words: Yasi Salek You know how sometimes a song is so sexy and empowering that even when you are sitting at your dining room table in bleach-stained sweatpants and a t-shirt that is about two days past acceptable wearing time you feel like Beyonce rolling around in the salty waves on a white sand beach...
[BEST SONG EVER] Natural Child "Don't Wake The Baby"

[BEST SONG EVER] Natural Child “Don’t Wake The Baby”

I really want to write about this new Natural Child song but my brain keeps packing its suitcases (insert emotional baggage joke here) and heading out to Tennessee to find a new life, a house with a porch, homemade mint sweet tea, a lazy dog, and a rugged, emotionally unavailable, pick-up truck driving man to...
[BEST SONG EVER] Guantanamo Baywatch "Love This Time"

[BEST SONG EVER] Guantanamo Baywatch “Love This Time”

I listened to the new Guantanamo Baywatch song “Love This Time” four or five times on repeat and then I wrote this thing below. They may or may not be related. It’s like swimming in the ocean in the fall, she says. When the water is so stabbingly cold it feels like a beginning, and...
[BEST SONG EVER] White Lung "Down With You"

[BEST SONG EVER] White Lung “Down With You”

This new White Lung song made me think of hate-fucking, but then again a lot of things make me think of hate-fucking (whiskey, porn, some episodes of “New Girl” etc), so I decided to ask vocalist Mish Way what the song was actually about (while still adding it to my romantic “Hate-Fuck” playlist, because you...
[BEST SONG EVER] The Coathangers "Adderall"

[BEST SONG EVER] The Coathangers “Adderall”

This one time in college I took Adderall with the intention of studying (ie learning an entire class worth of material before the final as I had sort of neglected to attend any sessions the entire quarter) but just as I was about to joyfully (and quickly) skip along to the library, I noticed the...
[BEST SONG EVER] Destruction Unit "The World On Drugs"

[BEST SONG EVER] Destruction Unit “The World On Drugs”

(Destruction Unit ruining The Echo, photo by me) Usually when a band is populated with too many people it gives me anxiety (in all fairness, a lot of things give me anxiety, ranging from even numbers to musicals to Jane reading over my shoulder as she is currently doing go away Jane) but there’s something...
[BEST SONG EVER] Bleached "Outta My Mind"

[BEST SONG EVER] Bleached “Outta My Mind”

All of my friends think it’s really weird that every song I like is about either heartbreak or break-ups or loving someone so much you have to murder them to put your heart at ease, because I’m in a pretty bormal (that’s boring + normal) relationship, and I don’t have much to be bummed about...
[BEST SONG EVER] Ty Segall "The Motivator" (T. Rex Cover)

[BEST SONG EVER] Ty Segall “The Motivator” (T. Rex Cover)

Oh for fuck’s sake Ty Segall can you just stop being the coolest fucking person on the planet? Why do the rest of us even bother getting out of bed in the morning when you’re out there making some of the best music of our generation (via your several different vehicles, including your mind-blowingly amazing...
[BEST SONG EVER] The Orwells "Halloween All Year"

[BEST SONG EVER] The Orwells “Halloween All Year”

Let’s overlook for a moment the troubling fact that a song that opens with the lyric “We are young, they don’t listen”* penned by 18-year-olds resonates so strongly with a 30-year old person. I’ve come to terms with my eternal teenage-dom (sort of), so let’s leave dwelling on that to my parents and my bank...
