For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “40 Days” by Conan O’Brien & The Basic Cable Band

The end of an era…

The end of an era…

Last week was the final episode of Conan O’Brien’s late-night show as we know it. Come next year, he’ll be launching a brand-new show with a brand-new format. There are some things about this change that are very exciting! But one thing that’s not so exciting: his new show will not have a house band.

So for their final episode, Conan O’Brien let Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band tear up the place. Here, partake and enjoy for the last time:

I watched the very first episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien back in 1993 when it was the Max Weinberg 7, and I’ve been with these guys ever since. It is sad to see them go.

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Fool” by Frankie Cosmos

You make me feel like a fool…

You make me feel like a fool…

I first heard of Frankie Cosmos (which is not the actual name of any members of the band) only a couple of weeks ago, because this song was used in an amazing new cartoon series that I’ll tell you all about soon. I believe this song might be the very definition of “twee.”

I also love that this song is barely over two minutes long. I love songs that don’t overstay their welcome. In fact, on the album that this song is from, the longest track is only 2:43 and many songs are under two minutes.

Also, the lead singer, Greta Kline, is the daughter of academy-award-winning actor Kevin Kline and famous actress Phoebe Cates! Now you know!

Anyhoo, hope you enjoy(ed)!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: Gorillaz “Humility”

JB + 2D!?

JB + 2D!?

Hey, Gorillaz came out with a new music video last week! Jack Black is in it! Take a look-see here:

So a few things: Jack Black appears in this video but does not actually play any of the music or sing any of the lyrics in the audio. Also, Murdoch has been replaced by Ace, a member of the Gangrene Gang from PowerPuff Girls. For serious! Take a look-see here:

Still playing with balls.

Still playing with balls.

Anyhoo, “Humility” is a preview from their upcoming new album, The Now Now. Didn’t Gorillaz just come out with an album last year? I’ve fallen behind!

For Your Wednesday Listening “Pleasure:” Two New Trevor Peach Albums!

Described as “unhealthily pessimistic,” “morbidly morose,” and “crestfallen in the downtrodden extreme,” Trevor Peach has been writing and performing music since 2004, recording mixtapes for close friends, only recently releasing his entire discography online via Bandcamp.

Well, just a few days ago he surprised us all by releasing not one, but TWO albums!

The first is very punnily-named When In Art, Make Doubt, which Trevor recorded with the Foregone Conclusions backup band. It is 13 brand-new tracks that you can (and should?) listen to the whole thing RIGHTCHEA:

The second album, Wordless Speechless Voiceless, is an anthology of music created between 2014 and 2018, remastered without lyrics. So basically Karaoke versions of FIFTY-TWO FRIKKIN’ Trevor Peach songs so that you can “entertain” your friends by singing to them. In all seriousness, though, it sometimes gets lost in all the overwrought lyrics, but listening to the instrumental versions of Trevor’s songs reminds you that he is actually a rather exceptional guitarist… when he isn’t morosely strumming the same 5 chords in the same rhythm over and over again for three minutes.

There you have it. “Enjoy” these new musics!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: E=MC Hawking

e=MC Hawking

e=MC Hawking

You probably heard that renowned science guy Stephen Hawking passed away a couple of weeks ago. Yes, he was incredibly influential, and yes, he helped shed light on just how mind-screamingly WEIRD our universe is. But today I’m paying tribute to his biggest contribution to the world: his body of music as a dope MC.

Here is Stephen Hawking as MC Hawking with “e=MC Hawking”
