Random Music Mix

It’s been a bit again. Sorry. But let’s enjoy a random weekend music mix. Igorrr – Downgrade Desert I once asked people for music recommendations on Twitter, and this band was suggested. They’re really weird – like you couldn’t tell that from the spelling – and therefore right up my alley. Peeping Tom – Mojo (featuring Rahzel & Dan the Automator) Oh, speaking of weird, here’s one of Mike Patton’s many side projects. If you didn’t know, Patton has so many side projects, I know for a fact I can’t name them all. Nice if you can keep that busy. Cry Club – Robert Smith Don’t know a lot about this band, except it’s a couple of queer Australian musicians, and the song is catchy as...

Character Theme Songs

Ever since I mentioned that I felt Roan’s life had a theme, I realized a lot of my characters did, but I hadn’t shared them. So I’m doing it now. In a couple of cases, the characters had an opinion that differed from mine, but they won. Roan Of course, he kicked this all off, when I revealed his life’s theme song, as I saw it, was Modest Mouse’s Dashboard. Because the repeated theme of “It should have been could have been worse than you would ever know”, as … yes. Roan’s life has been a bit like a slow motion car crash, and yet somehow it’s still not the worst case scenario, and he knows it.   But the major conflict was in picking a personal theme, as Roan would personally pick a dozen songs, all shuffling...

Saturday Music Mix

Another day, another random music mix. Why not? Kilo Kish – Collected Views From Dinner Kilo! Not a bad start to things. And if you ever get a chance to see her live – even virtually – you should. She’s awesome. clipping – Baby Don’t Sleep Ooh, fun. About a guy being hunted while also being literally lost in space. Sisters of Mercy – This Corrosion Aww yes! Rise up, my old school goth fans. Listen to a bedrock hymn of our ghostly people. My Chemical Romance – Thank You For The Venom Ha! Rise up my emo people, for here is one of your foundational bands. (For Infected readers only – this is Dylan’s favorite band. Really!) The Twilight Sad – Dead...

Music Mix Monday

We’re just going random again. Let’s see what we get. Metz – Blind Youth Industrial Park I did not realize this had a big video attached to it, but it does. It’s a weird one. Future of the Left – Arming Eritrea We are developing a shouty/loud theme, music wise. Pretty much par for the course for me. Murder City Devil – Bear Away This is one of those rare songs that I think is better in its live form. Why? Listen to it. It still slaps. Zeal & Ardor – Devil Is Fine This is a slight deviation from the theme, but not really, because most Zeal & Ardor songs are ten times harder than this. But the lyrics fit perfectly. Babymetal – Distortion And here we have...

Random Music Monday

Holy shit, what a rough week. Let’s try and distract ourselves with some tunes. clipping – Blood of the Fang Considering this week – and honestly, the last few years, decades, century – this feels like an ironically dark and appropriate opening gambit. I mean, the “Hands up don’t shoot” line is the first honestly chilling moment, and the second is the repeated line “They still shooting”. Yeah, they are. And Diggs’ flow could kill us all, but so far he hasn’t weaponized it. yet. Police Teeth – Send More Cops Can an ipod weaponize sass? Because, wow, coming after Blood of the Fang? For those not in the know, the line “Send more cops” is from the horror movie Return of the Living Dead....

Sunday Mix Tape

So I decided to do another random music shuffle, to prove I’m alive and still writing. Sometimes while I’m writing I have my ipod on shuffle and listen to whatever, and sometimes an interesting mix comes up. And this is one of them. ** Grove – Fuck Ur Landlord You know you’re in for a fun time when this one kicks everything off. Elliott Smith – Ballad of Big Nothing Talk about whiplash! Although the songs have something in common – they’re both very angry. But only Grove sounds like it. These Arms Are Snakes – Horse Girl Please get used to this musical phase shift. It happens quite a bit with me. Shredders – Xanthrax Another tonal and genre change. I think that’s the...
