Pixies fans. Read this.

Pixies

So I have been on a complete Pixies binge lately. I purchased their phenomenal album “Trompe Le Monde” which means “Decieves the World” in French. But when I originally typed in “Trompe le Monde” into Google Translate, I had it set from French to Spanish by accident. Here’s what they gave me.

Screen Shot 2013-01-25 at 3.18.35 PMNow “Doolittle” doesn’t mean anything in Spanish, and I wanted an English translation anyway, so why do I bring this to your attention? “Doolittle” coincidentally is the name of the Pixies’ preceding album. . . . . .Weird right? Somebody workin over at Google must be a sneaky little Pixies fan right?

Gary Clark Jr. – Numb

Saw this on Conan the other night. Fackin love it guy. This dude is like Hendrix/Blues influence meets hip-hop, with a voice so smoov, it’ll make you wanna slap yo mamma! Seriously, if I could have this man’s voice, I’d make sweet ear love to the masses every night. And that deep fuzz-sound of the guitar w/ that low tuning (gotta be down to D right? maybe even C) makes it sound so badass.

My only complaint. . . Does he know that main riff is just “Come Together” by the Beatles? He must know right? Thing is, I don’t even care, this song rocks.

Tracks that stick out to me are:

New Deftones Ain’t Half Bad

I’ve always liked Deftones. And compared to most new rock albums coming out in 2012, I’m gonna assume “Ko Noi Yokan” is definitely worth getting. I’ll let you know once I get it.

Global Showcase: The Whigs

 

From Athens, Georgia

The Whigs new album “Enjoy The Company” dropped in September and they still gaht it guy. And they’re still on the up. All four of their albums differ from each other in all around sound and style, but they all manage to be solid rock albums. “Enjoy The Company” sticks to their theme of constant evolution as a band and incorporation of all types of rock genres, mainly Alternative, Southern, Indie, and Dance Rock. It’s also a step in a positive direction from their last album. Get familiar.
