cat scratch fever

Track list:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - show your bones - honeybear

Comments: It's great we love it, blah blah blah. Hasn't enough been said? Just listen to it already.

The Doers - whatcha doin? - keep yr shirt on

Comments: Yeow, it's like funk prudery! You'll be glad to know Jonelle gives it a 7.2 out of 10, 10 being the highest, and 1 being the lowest. That's not bad.

The Cosmopolitans - wild moose party - how to keep your husband happy

Comments: Hilarious girl band alert. They're so B52s, but it's forgivable because they were out at the same time. Now they're a distant memory, or at least a recently formed one, because I've never heard them before.

Loose Fur - born again in the usa - hey chicken

Comments: I think it's pretty good, Jonelle's not a fan. Hey, it happens. It sounds a bit grateful dead-ish, although did the dead ever sing about farm animals? I'll have to look that up.

Final Fantasy - he poos clouds - the arctic circle

Comments: hmm, violins.

filthy, nasty.

Track list:

1. Scissor Sisters - scissor sisters - filthy/gorgeous

Comments: This guy defies physics. How do you dance around shirtless, sing like you've got clamps on your nads, and drip irony out of every pore all at the same time? Well, maybe it's a generous irony, but still.

2. Frank Peebles - various: prince george covers - Sex at 31

Comments: Mmm, spoken vocorder jazz.

3. Death From Above 1979 - blood on our hands (single) - blood on our hands

Comments: will coloured vinyl ever get tired? My verdict: hell no. We actually meant to play the other side of this record, but we accidentally... didn't. What the hell, I love this song too. The elephant noses never fail to charm me, and the songs are all exactly the right length, somehow. It hits me pleasantly in my 'rage against the machine' cortex.

4. Orchards and Vines - tomorrow and yesterday - in the darkness

Comments: awesome, seriously, I'm not even kidding! Oh damn my eternal sarcasm.

Tragedy: Jonelle just managed to drop her rammstein cd down a crack in the control board. It's lost forever, and it's probably going to start a horrible fire.

On with the show!

Track list:

1. Kid Koala ft. Lederhosen Lucil - various: see you on the moon - fruit belt

Comments: this is a kids album, and it's completely awesome. I WANT it.

2. Cat Power - the greatest - the greatest

Comments: this album is not very depressing, like we said. It's completely awesome. I WANT it.

3. Dr. Rage and the Uppercuts - hittin' wood and diamond hard - hittin' wood

Comments: doo da da da doo doo da da da DA DAAAAA! Yikes. We were hoping for some inappropriate content. Instead it just kind of is... wait! He said "between a memory and a dream"! TOM PETTY THIEF!!

4. Hank Williams III - straight to hell - thrown out of the bar

Comments: everybody's favourite.
