1. Marvelous Beauhunks – Don’t Mind Doin’ (What I Just Did)
Tito’s real name is Glenn Goodman, we apologize to all the Glenns, Titos, and Jermaines out there who may have been offended.
Grab a copy of “Do Not Resuscitate” and ask for the Gold Package for Steven Wright to call you and read the book out loud. Be sure to tell him Nanobot sent you.
2. Curious Quail – Disappointed Smiles (Formula for a Generic, Academy-Award Nominated [But Not Winning] Ron Howard Film)
“Dudel dudel dudel dudel” = Super Mario Underground Music
Legend of Zelda theme with a full orchestra? Someone beat us to it.
3. False Priest – False Priest
Handshake – Sleeping Snarling
So… probably not proto-grunge, but still pretty great
4. Dear Indugu – Frame Of Gold
“Dear Ndugu, you’ll be glad to know that Jeannie’s wedding came off without a hitch.” [Spoiler? Nah, the movie is 12 years old – if you don’t want the plot ruined, you should have seen it already]
Quick history lesson: Clay, Greg & Kevin all worked at the same company in Denver, CO until it became financially insolvent. They then decided to keep the party going with a music blog. Greg had to be a jerk and leave for Boise, ID (sure, Clay spent 2 years in Austin, TX and then came back, but still).
5. The Grizzled Mighty – Wallflower
A little more info on Treefort Music Festival
And a little of The Grizzled Mighty live for you, as well.
6. Picture Atlantic – White Knight
How chaotic is “Twist?” Quite.
7. Lunar Pilots – High As The Stars
Learn more about Greg’s favorite defunct British band: UnAmerican
Yeah… that’s not what Clay meant when he said “whalloper…” Maybe “whopper” would have been better?
8. Slowdim – Uh Oh
Clear Channel is way too big, and has been for a while.
