Radiohead on SNL

I never fully embraced the Radiohead album from this year (King of Limbs). I listened and liked it but it never buried itself into my core the way Ok Computer, Kid A, or In Rainbows did. However watching the performance of Lotus Flower I am forced to go back and dig deeper. King of Limbs will now be on repeat this week, I will be drinking the Radiohead Kool-Aid.

Late Night Viewing Sept. 19 - 23

A busy week on late night TV. You will need to set aside some time to see all the big performances. Would be even more, but I couldn't find Elbow on Fallon or Death Can for Cutie on Carson Daly. Performance of the week goes to Clap Your Hands, just edging out Wilco. Ready to hear arguments to the contrary.

Coldplay - Paradise on Letterman Tuesday Sept. 20
New track sounds like Coldplay, sounds good.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Same Mistake on Fallon Tuesday Sept. 20
The album is getting average reviews, but I really like it. Sure this sounds like "Country Yellow Teeth," but that was a great song.

The Decemberists - Calamity Song live for Carson Daly show Tuesday Sept. 20
Really a concert performance. The sound isn't great, but the song is.

Wilco - Born Alone on Letterman Wednesday Sept. 21
Can't wait for the album!

The Kooks - Junk of the Heart on Leno Wednesday Sept. 21

Telekinesis - Please Ask For Help on Fallon Thursday Sept. 22
A great to buy if you don't own it yet.

The Jayhawks - She Walks In So Many Ways on Letterman Friday Sept. 23
Looking old.

Video: Otis Redding Try A Little Tenderness

Happy Birthday Otis! 70 years old today! Sittin On the Dock of the Bay is a classic, but this is my favorite. Discovered the song through the move "Commitments," but once I heard the Otis version it was lights out.

Cheat Sheet #24 2011

Some of this music I have been sitting on for a month. August was filled was good times and great vacations. Now it is back to the grind, but a lot this music will bring back the lazy days of summer sound.

The Drums - What You Were source My Blob Cliche 
The Drums -Please Don't Leave source My Blog Cliche
Got that same surf guitar sound, so they aren't inventing anything new, but we do seem to get a darker album this time around. I like it.
New album Portamento out Sept. 6
Band Website

Atlas Sound - Tera Incognito source Photog Music
This is not my favorite music, but many people are drooling over this (and anything Bradford Cox does) so I included it. Nice and mellow, perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
New album Parallax not out till Nov. 8

Nurses - Trying To Reach You source All the Young Punks
Nurses - Fever Dreams source Bow Legs Music
More of that garage and surf sound sound. Great annoying vocals that are catchy as hell. Love the sound of the guitar effects on both of these tracks.
New album Dracula out on Sept. 20Band Website

Justice - Audio, Video, Disco source Earmilk
Catchy and cool electronic music.
