FLASHBACK FRIDAY! WHISTLE EDITION!

Peter-Bjorn-John-Young-Folks-4

I’m really psyched about this week’s video because it’s such a fun song. Back in 2006, a little group from Sweden called Peter, Bjorn, and John released one of the catchiest songs ever called “Young Folks”. The band has released other music heard in commercials and elsewhere but this song is probably their most popular. In fact, it was so popular that even Mr. Kanye West sampled and used the song for himself! You can listen to that here.

Here’s the amazing video:

There goes FLASHBACK FRIDAY again!

This Friday we take it back to 1988 with the song “There She Goes” by jangle-pop band, The La’s. You might remember the cover by the band Six Pence None the Richer from 1999 but I prefer the original. This is a quality pop song by a very short lived and underrated band from the 80s and 90s. The video is nothing special but the song is super catchy and easy to play on guitar if one is so inclined.

Have a good weekend!

 

FLASHBACK FRIDAY!

It’s vintage music video time. Remember 1995? Me neither. But this video is super cool and very 90s. Folk Implosion was one of the many bands of alt-rocker Lou Barlow. The band released four albums throughout the 90s and more recently they released an album in 2003 but disbanded shortly thereafter. The song “Natural One” became a huge hit after it was released on the soundtrack to the movie KIDS in 1995. You can watch the trailer for this controversial flick here and if you haven’t seen this movie go find a way to watch it now because it’s excellent. I found this copy of the “Natural One” music video on YouTube and the sound quality is not great but it’s a fantastic song.

Here’s “Natural One” by The Folk Implosion:

 

FLASHBACK FRIDAY! THE JERRY EDITION!

Sometime the week is so crazy that you just need a little bit of encouragement. You need someone to tell you that you’ll be ok. Things can get crazy but you’ll survive. Or…you’ll get by. Sometimes you need to blast a classic Grateful Dead track so loud in your car that people think you have lost your mind completely. Here’s the Grateful Dead’s classic “Touch of Grey”. Don’t worry friend, it’ll be alright:

FLASHBACK FRIDAY!

Sloss_Furnaces

Well, this week in the Magic City, we had some more insane weather events which caused major problems for some people in the area and, perhaps, smaller problems for others. Monday night was supposed to be the big Vampire Weekend indie rock concert event at Sloss Furnace but due to unforeseen, but somewhat predicted, inclement weather the show was moved to the BJCC and, ultimately, postponed (insert sad emoji or cucumber emoji or some other emoji, I don’t really know).

 

So, now ticket holders will wait and see when the band will come back and play a make-up show. Personally, I was looking forward to seeing Vampire Weekend but also looking forward to going to a venue I still have not been to, Sloss Furnace. Anyway, since it’s Friday and we are all still kind of bummed about missing the show I thought I’d remind everyone how we fell in love with these New York prepsters (How’s that for a typical blogger description of the band?). Here’s there 2008 breakout single “A-Punk”.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY! BRITPOP EDITION!

In case you missed it, this week Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz, and the short-lived but awesome The Good, The Bad, and The Queen) released a new single and announced his album Everyday Robots coming out on April 28. You can check out the new track “Everyday Robots” here but today we are giving you a classic video from is original band, Blur. The song is “Coffee and TV” from Blur’s 1999 release 13. I remember waiting patiently for MTV2 to debut it way back when I was in high school. A quintessential Britpop track with a semi-animated video treatment about a milk carton having a weird day. Although Damon didn’t actually sing on this track, Graham Coxon did, it’s still a really cool video. Don’t you feel sorry for that poor little milk carton?

Have a good weekend.
