2/16: Songs About Movies and Television

Still trying to incorporate more rap and R&B into the show to varying degrees of success. I found out about J Dilla so late that I have my plate full just trying to catch up with him. Nevermind all the Madlib that’s coming out. If anyone wants to point me in one direction or another, I’d appreciate it. Anyways, J Dilla was all over the place. I’m sure you know about him more than I do. So I’ll shut up about it. Here’s a video of his to check out. Can’t wait to get more from him:

The center of the show was White Hills’ 13-minute psych-epic, “Let the Right One In.” It’s from their latest album out on Thrill Jockey, which is about one-half jam greatness and one-half introverted, annoying, adolescent lyrics about how nobody cares and what have you. Not sure who thought that was a good idea, because the parts without the whining sound excellent. Anyways, the song is named after one of the best vampire movies I’ve ever seen. Here’s a preview. Go watch it. Read the book, too.

Lots of posts below this one: new reviews, a butt-filled preview of the new Bonnie Will Oldham record, Italian rock ‘n’ roll gibberish, and so forth. Check it out.

Thanks for visiting.
