TWIM: Gauntlet Hair

Gauntlet Hair - Keep Time
Gauntlet Hair - Mop It Up
Gauntlet Hair - Top Bunk
Heavy effects, droning, repetitious, psychedelic describe this Chicago/Denver band. Not sure about the whole album but Keep Time Andq Top Bunk are worth making it on any current playlist.

Mixtape: A Ghostly Mix for Halloween

Get ready for Halloween with these Forty-one great tracks. The theme is clear and obvious - Ghost. Some are spooky, some are nice, most are indie, but a few are classic. They are ranked in relative order from strongest to weakest, but everything on the list is K approved. The one exception to the order is the Phish song which got added at the last minute and should be up in the top 15.

Here is the top 11:
1. Ghost Riders In Sky - Johnny Cash
2. Ghost - Neutral Milk Hotel
3. Ghost Rider - Suicide
4. Anyone's Ghost - National (free cover version by Silver Swans)
5. You Ghost - Kristen Hersch w/ Michael Stipe
6. The Ghost Song - The Doors

TWIM Oct 25

After taking most of September and October off, I am back in an attempt to rejuvenate my blogging career. So I am starting off with This Week In Music, which will focus on my favorite tracks and albums that are new releases. This weekend I'll also add my favorite tracks from the summer and focus on playlists / mix tapes using Spotify. If you aren't on Spotify join now. A great link to all the music you could ever want and if you put up with a few ads here and there it is free. However I did notice the new Coldplay is not available on Spotify at the moment, boo hoo. Two great garage rock albums out this week with The Beets and The Strange Boys.

The Beets - Doing As I Do
The Beets - Friends of Friends
Album Let the Poison Out

Strange Boys - Me and You
Album Live Music
