All Over The Place: Music In My Head

I saw Sufjan in Oakland last week and the show was bananas. Fresh, ripe bananas. We're talking french horns, two drum sets, back up dancers, spaceships, etc. It was almost as good as the Black Keys show. Maybe just as good. I'm hesitant to compare the two, but I guess if both artists were foodstuffs, Sufjan would be bananas foster and the Black Keys would be fried chicken. I don't know where I'm going with this.

Maximum Balloon- "Groove Me" (Director's Cut) from Carlos Lopez Estrada on Vimeo.

Sounds like the love child of David Byrne and Michael Jackson. Also, the American Dream is a black man in a Smith College baseball cap.

I never got into Animal Collective, but apparently, this band sounds like them. Also, I love projection light shows more than crisp October mornings.

J-Roddy Walston and the Business - "Don't Break The Needle" from Benjamin Gauvain Hoste on Vimeo.

Firstly, I always planned on calling my backup band "the Business," so thanks for fucking me over on that one, J-Roddy Walston. Secondly, this band and song are both so f-ing fun and from Maryland.

This song is so Mumford and Son-ish in both sound and cheesy sentimentality, and it makes me feel nice. Also, real talk, I'm into the lady-man in this vid. She looks like Paul McCartney.

This is a dangerous song to listen to if you take public transportation, because you'll want to punch all of the smelly plebs invading your personal bubble right in their smelly mouths. Does no one brush in San Francisco? Have we moved beyond that social norm?

O Captain! My Captain!:

Other Bo Carter tunes include, "My Pencil Don't Write No More," "Please Warm My Wiener," "Pin In Your Cushion" and "Your Biscuits Are Big Enough For Me."
