Changing taste in music

I don't know who to blame for this, or where it comes from. There was a time in my life where the majority of my musical interests basically ranged from alt rock to hard rock. Throw in some 80's and Ice Cube and there you, go, that was what I liked.

A year ago my friend JL posted a story about his trek to Podunk, South Something, and listening to the Scissor Sisters over and over again. I picked up the album and did pretty much the same thing. (listen to it over and over again, not trek to Podunk). During that time I was also becoming more interested in the 80's-esque style of Killers, Elefant, Interpol, yadda, yadda.

Enter Gnarls Barkley, which made me go back and find more of their individual earlier work and then I get hooked on Lady Sovereign, this awesome kid from England, which then expands my collection to more Streets/Dizzee Rascal fare.

How awesome is THIS?! Lady SOV is coming back to the States to play. And when? My birthday, bitch! El Rey, NOVEMBER 15TH. Boo-YA! I'm so there.

And I expect it to be better then the Scissor Sisters show I just saw. I was SO EXCITED for that. But it was a) in the Shrine Expo, which has the shittiest accoustics next to, say, a barrell, b) Ana Matronic's mic was shit and c) it was the first show for the new album and clearly, they weren't as tight on the new stuff as the old. But it was still very entertaining, so I give it a 7 out of ten. And seriously, WHEN did audiences get so damn tall?! Same thing happened at Rob Zombie. I can't even see at floor shows anymore. WTF?!

Anyway, check out this awesome new Gnarls Barkley video. OK, the ending is kinda nasty. OK, really nasty, but it's still cool.

Oh, and Little Lost Robot posted this a few weeks ago, but it makes me so happy you gotta go check it out as well.

One last thing! What do you think of the new James Bond song? Chris Cornell did the intro this year. I think it's pretty good.

It ain't yo Mammy's Bond Song
