The BBQ Song. Once this gets in your head, good luck. It won’t come out.
This video clip looks like it is straight off cute overload, but the sweetness is offset by Of Montreal’s dark sense of humour and heavy bass-line. This song is Wraith Pinned to the Mist (and Other Games), from the album The Sunlandic Twins. I wonder if somewhere a student writing a thesis on their song titles…
Have a great weekend!
Yes, the computer is still in the shop. But there’s still Gogol Bordello and what is quite possibly the world’s best song:

We went down to the Rialto last night to catch a benefit concert by Calexico. Best show I’ve seen in ages. They pull off an unexpected blend of mariachi, folk, and straight-up rock, including a Neil Young cover featuring two full mariachi bands and a slew of guest vocalists on stage. Calexico is perhaps Tucson’s most successful troupe of local musicians, capturing the dual American-Mexican character of the city. Watch the video, though, to see for yourself.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is another Aussie band that has made it into my regular rotation. Nick Cave was recently interviewed by Terry Gross, where we learn that his parentage includes a librarian and an English teacher. This may explain the sophistication of his lyrics. In any case, I like it.
