Song of the Day #398 - i'm bored, i'm screaming like i got no soul

Their first album was way too hardcore punk for my tastes, but I'm liking what I'm hearing here.  Raucous, rowdy and fun.  Reminds me of Mando Diao, but not as neatly packaged.

The Computers - Love Triangles, Hate Squares

ps - don't smoke e-cigs in a movie theater. cmon, dude...have some decency.

Ra Ra Riot goes synth!

Ra Ra Riot - Beta Love

ps - still coming to grips with the fact that i watched a 45 minute stone temple pilots greatest hits set on saturday and didn't realize until the next day that it wasn't scott weiland fronting the group. (but rather, chester bennington of linkin park...he sounded and looked EXACTLY the same)

After seeing Andrew McMahon tonight (former lead singer of Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin), I just had to bring it back... 

Something Corporate - Konstantine

Song of the Day #391 - and i thought if i towed the right lines...

Somehow this song, and really Grant Lee Buffalo as a whole, totally escaped my musical knowledge until just recently.  Better late than never!...

Song of the Day #389 - you broke my one rule, you treated me cruel

A very different (and more musically upbeat) take on the throes of heartbreak than yesterday's Phosphorescent song.  Bring on the horns!

Har Mar Superstar - Lady, You Shot Me

ps - i don't have my tv on, but castle is probably on right now

Song of the Day #388 - but my heart is wild, and my bones are steel

Pretty epic.  Right now I want to go out for a late night drive on an empty freeway, roll down the windows, and just blare this as the cool night air pumps into the car...

Phosphorescent - Song for Zula

ps - why is castle ALWAYS on?  i have never seen an episode of castle...but somehow every night my bedroom tv defaults to an episode of castle after i've put it on mute and stopped paying attention.
