If you are up on your Internet game then you know about Christian Bale’s flip out on the set of Terminator 17 or whatever. If you are all up in the music blogosphere then you know about The Mae Shi‘s jammin tune they wrote, recorded, and had online 24 hours after the Bale audio broke.
With lickity-spilt turnaround like that and a catchy factor that is off the charts it’s safe to say these L.A. based spazz-rockers ARE professional. Take a listen to my favorite jam off their 2008 Lp HILLLYH.
BONUS: If you really have your YouTube game tight and you know what happened to David after the dentist then you will appreciate this. I know I did.

It’s all about the slow burn. Feel the heat rise as the guitar in Keep Yourself Warm builds from churning milk… to churning butter… to churning out a rock and roll anthem that makes me want to put my headphones in other people’s ears. However, if you are paying attention to the knowledge being dropped in these lyrics you will know that putting things in other people’s holes is not the path to happiness. Hear that, kids?

Don’t let Baz Lurman’s latest galloping turd turn you off to the land of Oz forever. It’s time we reconcile the loss of those 165 minutes and let Australia start redeeming itself. Cue End Of Fashion. Their musicvideos may contain some pretty morbid serial-killer type stuff but as you can hear, their music is far from black nail polish and eyeliner. Australia’s End Of Fashion pack some big anthems and swinging hooks on the rest of their Nicole-Kidman-free 2008 release Book Of Lies.

Y’all probably heard this tune before and are like “Yeah, its great, but its like wicked old. I hope all the music you put up here isn’t gonna be from like 2004.” Well no, this one is just super pertinent! Its the first post on this blog! And if you are in PolandÂ the video is in this months episode of Cafe Muza. Check it!
