Guilt?

Okay, I'm switching the redirect links back to Shrinkster, for a number of reasons, but mostly because site founder Kyle has been so VERY helpful in getting us a workaround on the issues people were having with right click->save as, and because now I can track and find out how many people are clicking on various songs. Let me know if you have any problems.

Green Day - Letterbomb - It's confession time kiddos. I love Green Day. Or, more specifically, I love Dookie It was the first CD I ever bought for myself, and just hearing it, it warped my fragile little middle school mind. I don't think I knew anybody growing up who didn't have a copy of that album. It was the album, and more specifically, "Basket Case" was the song, by which we all suddenly seemed to become cognizant of Music as this... thing, with power, with meaning, something more than just background noise on the radio, and that stuff you sang in chorus or played in the band. It was the soundtrack of my preteen years. And then, I abandonded Green Day, and Green Day abandoned me. Around when I started high school, I discovered NOFX, and the whole wide world of other punk bands, not to mention my local booming ska scene. Green Day meanwhile, were going all soft. As my friends followed them off and away from punk, I stuck with it, and grew to ignore Green Day. I still tend to listen once to anything enw they put out, just for nostalgias sake, but they haven't managed to impress me since, or, for that matter, amuse me even most of the time. But Green Day have a new album coming out soon, entitled American Idiot. Letterbomb is a song from this album. And by god, it's the second coming of Basket Case. The sound is tightened up, the production denser, but Billy Joe's forgotten all those fancy chord changes, and plugged back in, and the band has remembered how to be all they were ever good at - overgrown adolescents with a Ramones fixation and a California sneer. And they've still got it. My inner 12 year old is pogoing his ass off, and I've got a grin a mile wide.

Head Automatica - Brooklyn is Burning - Our other selections today come from Head Automatica, the fusion of Glassjaw's Daryl Palumbo (yes, THAT Glassjaw, the emo band from LI. I told you, this entry is about Guilt.), and Dan The Automator. Basically, Dan does what he always does, and Daryl, well doesw what he always does too, and proves that he's never not one to cash in on a trend. Thing is, with these two tracks, he does it pretty damned well. Palumbo calls it "Electronic Cock-Rock" - which sounds about right. If the Scissor Sisters represent Glams softer side, all Elton John Pianos and disco beats, Head Automatica, bring the rock. Fuzyzy rolling guitar licks, and vocals that wouldn't sound out of place circa 1982. Meanwhile, Nakamuras contributing a pretty vicious beat that could serve handily in a hip hop song if it weren't so overlayed.

Head Automatica - Beating Heart Baby - unfortunately, Palumbo hasn't totally lost his emo tendencies. Fortunately, in the context of beat heavy, party ready glam rock, it manages to make for a pretty decent power ballad. And besides, you can never have enough cowbell. Now if only they could sound a bit less like the Rapture, and maybe if Palumbo could release an album when a trend is actually hot as opposed to dying, he might have something. It's a damn shame he's always late to the party, because at least in this genre, he's got some real talent. (I'm a long time hater on glassjaw for reasons that only have a little bit to do with their music. But this blog is for talking about the music, so I will spare you.) Okay readers, you may all proceed to tear me to shit for todays entry.

Hmm.... Download Linked File As works in Safari....


What browser are you using? I'll forward on to Kyle, and see what he has to say.

You can also always just follow the link normally and then File->Save As.

yeah right click "Save link as" doesn't work in mozilla. but the normal stuff worked fine. man don't apologize so much for this! daryl's vocal acrobatics make this stuff so much fun to listen to, i'd heard the early leak of head automatica, but i'm digging this stuff a lot more. who cares when he hits the trend, the background vocals on "beating heart baby" are so much fucking fun!
