a tune for Tuesday vol 24

YBW and I were in the car Sunday afternoon. I remarked I didn’t have a song for my tune for Tuesday this week, and how that’s strange because I tend to plan them. I asked if he had an idea for a song and he presented me with this.
He told me he wasn’t sure I would like it, that it’s not really my sort of music.
I told him it sounded like 1970s funk (which is what I like about it) mixed with a little bit of Beastie Boys.
We laughed at the analogy, but I’m not wrong.
The more I listen, the more inclined I am to enjoy it.

Here’s YBW’s pick for this Tuesday’s tune, Parquet Courts with Wide Awake.

Please listen responsibly.

a tune for Tuesday vol 23

The first time I heard this song I was mildly interested but switched back to the Broadway channel before it was finished.
The second time I heard this song I listened longer.
The third time I heard this song I realized I kind of liked it.
The fourth time I heard this song I turned it up.

Clearly it needed to grow on me. Perhaps that won’t happen to you.
Here’s Matt Maeson with Cringe.

a tune for Tuesday vol 21

I’ve waited six long years for a new album by my beloved Vampire Weekend!
Sometime this spring we’ll get double album FOTB (Father of the Bride).
SQUEE!

This is Harmony Hall.
Notice the lyric “I don’t want to live like this but I don’t want to die.”
This line is also used in Finger Back from 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City.
I’m so ready for this record to be released!

Please listen responsibly.

a tune for Tuesday vol 19

Before they were on every top 40 station with Sex on Fire, these three bothers and their cousin were a funky little group that had an even funkier little following. Honestly, when they became more commercial, I found myself missing their older, funkier, more raw sound.
From their debut album, Youth and Young Manhood, here’s Kings of Leon with Molly’s Chambers.

Just another girl that wants to rule the world
Any time or place
And when she gets into your head
You know she’s there to stay

Please listen responsibly.

a tune for Tuesday vol 18

This song!
I’ve loved it for well over ten years now. Every single time I hear it, it really is like hearing if for the first time.
Listen how beautifully it captures the moment when the beginning of the end of a relationship becomes a clear realization.
This is The Libertines with Music When The Lights Go Out.

Please listen responsibly.

a tune for Tuesday vol 17

This is a Thing 1 song. I left her house yesterday and find myself missing her this morning.
My girl loves herself some P!nk. (so much so that this was our song at my wedding reception)
This is Raise Your Glass.

Please listen responsibly.

a tune for Tuesday vol 16

This is one of those songs I heard in passing and ignored the first couple of times. But the more I hear it, the more I like it.
Here’s Fruity by Rubblebucket.

a tune for Tuesday vol 15

The first time I heard this song I was like, WTF? It didn’t even sound like Weezer to me.
The second time I heard it I was caught by the lyric: The future’s so bright I gotta poke my eyes out.
The third time I heard it I was hooked and I’m not really sure why.

A something from their soon to be released The Black Album.
This is Can’t Knock the Hustle.
(the vid is weird, but I love the song)

Please listen resonsibly.
