For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Different Windows” by Smokey Brights

Smokey Brights Different Windows

Is this the kind of monster that you need…

Thanks once again to Eva & Cedric, the Walker Twins of The Black Tones, and their music video show Video Bebop for once again introducing me to an amazing music video that I’d have otherwise probably never seen! (Seriously, you should watch new Video Bebops whenever they are released).

This time it’s local (of course) band Smokey Brights. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them live at some point. But anyway, “Different Windows” is a fantastic song. It’s gots groooove to it. And the video is hilarious, full of dime-store costumes and bored musicians on their cell phones, all with a wonderful 80s VHS vibe to it. Partake and be pleasured:

You have now been smokily pleasured!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Ghetto Spaceship” by The Black Tones

Ghetto Spaceship by The Black Tones

Don’t you worry, baby(s)…

Didn’t I just do a Black Tones song as my Wednesday Listening Pleasure at the beginning of this month? Oh, yeah, I did. Shut up: they’re good and I really enjoy their music. Plus they’ve released their first-ever official music video! It’s for “Ghetto Spaceship” and features a dramatized version of a time when the Walker Twins’ mother was pregnant with them. Since they’re in utero, they’re of course naked. The Walker Twins do seem to enjoy to be naked. Here’s Cedric on the cover of their album Cobain & Cornbread for example:

Who want some cheese?

Anyhoo, “Ghetto Spaceship” is from Cobain & Cornbread. Partake and be pleasured:

You have now been nakedly pleasured.

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Bear Named Sue” by Vanna Oh

Vanna Oh! Bear Named Sue

“I put him in my pocket, saved him for another time…”

Vanna Oh is a local Pacific Northwest musician whom I’m deeply ashamed to admit I had never heard of until this week. I heard of them thanks to Eva & Cedric Walker (of The Black Tones) and their new music video show called Video Bebop on The Seattle Channel! Thanks, Walker Twins!

So anyway, Vanna Oh simply shreds and I absolutely adore this song and the resultant video, which does great things with primary colors and also with film speed. Partake and be pleasured:

You have now been pleasured!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” by Eva Walker, Julia Massey, & Alaia D’Alessandro

"Won't You Be My Neighbor" by Eva Walker, Julia Massey, & Alaia D'Alessandro

These guys…

Three Seattle musical powerhouses, Eva Walker of The Black Tones, Julia Massey of Warren Dunes, and Alaia D’Alessandro of Tres Leches, have collaborated on a cover version of the Mister Rogers theme song. With twinkling pianos, sublime strings, and soaring harmonies, it is as delightful and pleasurable as you would expect:

Go grab a tissue to wipe your eyes. You have now been pleasured.
