Goodbye Horses

Fan Death covers Q Lazzarus' classic and oh-so-sexy 'Goodbye Horses.' I tend to play the original late into an evening, late into a set, late into a haze of sweaty boys and girls who fell in love on the dance floor. Now I have two options when I feel like saying goodbye to a night and goodbye to some horses. Pretty awesome...

I'll include the original for those who don't have it, because you should, because its amazing, just because.

Wave Machines

It happens to be 74 degrees, sunny as balls and the perfect Saturday afternoon to pop the sunroof, head north on 101 and sing along to the wave of happy pop and club bounce that the Wave Machines stir up. Keep the lights on, released on 4/20, is the first release off their upcoming debut album, "Wave if You're Really There." Enjoy, and break out the SPF...

My Monday Night, Your Twisted Wires

I love rediscovering music that lost itself in iTunes USA. Music, like dogs or dreams, often get lost in dark places. This song popped back into my regular rotation thanks to my upcoming Monday night trip down to Mezzanine to see Glass Candy. Opening is none other than Twisted Wires, a fellow Italians Do It Better cup of synthy disco Joy Division . Check it...
