Monday, Monday

***Here's a nice "Loving Hands" remix of Dappled Cities' "Fire, Fire, Fire" that kind of makes me wish I liked to boogie. Like, if I ever did, I'd certainly want this playing. It's like the slow mo version of what those crazy club kids do.

***When I read that an artist has played with Ben Lee and Rachael Yamagata (who hooked up with Rhett Miller on his last release, The Believer), then I'm likely to take notice. That's why I figured I'd listen to Chris Stills. After giving it a listen, I've decided it's too redundant for my taste, and not really groundbreaking. But, as always, you can decide for yourself.

Chris Stills - "Fool For Love"

***Forever the symbol of the break-up of one of the biggest and most respected bands of all time, Yoko Ono has set up an online peace demonstration. I can go for that, considering my kid brother is over in the middle of a violent war right now. It's called Imagine Peace, and it comes on the verge of the emergence of the Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland, coinciding with John Lennon's birthday, which is this Tuesday, October 9th.

***If you're into quirky, experimental sounds, and you haven't caught onto the Octopus Project yet, then you might want to. The music has electronics throughout that make me think someone is going to pop out and dance some kind of Irish jig. It also makes me wish I had a pet leprechaun that could make up words to these instrumental songs. Despite all of that, I still don't care for it.

They're coming to Atlanta this Thursday, October 11th at the Drunken Unicorn.
