Christ, this year's been pretty good in terms of music.
Oh most definitely.
I've never been a big fan of Daft Punk, but Random Access Memories
is fantastic. Some of my favorite tracks off that record are "Instant Crush" (Julian Casablancas' voice, man, it's fuckin' perfect), "Fragments of Time", "Within", and "Get Lucky". Jables said it right, they really are some of the catchiest songs I've ever heard.
I'm also really diggin' QOTSA's new record Like Clockwork
. Just about every song on it sounds like a hit. It's a really refreshing "rock n' roll" album. When Josh Homme sings "Giuchie, Giuchie, Oh la la, Do run run, You wont get far", on "If I Had A Tail"
, I get goosebumps.
Also, Adam Green and Binki Shapiro's collaborating record came out this year and it's just such fun music to listen too. If you can find it on Spotify, I highly recommend listening to it. Both of them have such attractive voices.
And of course, I've been listing to Comedown Machine
by The Strokes. Such a different sound for them, but it is sooooo
goddamn good. "Tap Out"
, "One Way Trigger"
, and "Welcome To Japan"
, are all songs people need to check out.
