The Elected's new album

There's some news that after a release of some B-sides at the end of this year, Rilo Kiley is going to call it quits. That is a huge bummer. However, as long as the members of the band keep making music like the Elected and Jenny & Johnny, then I'm a happy camper not at camp. (There's a Salute your Shorts reference in here somewhere, because the lead singer of the Elected used to be on the show... DONKEY LIPS!)

Anyhoodles, the Elected's new album is awesome. Listen and enjoy!

Music and movies

Such a fun art form... combining such epic footage of world traveling!

This was written about by my friend Stephen Greenwood at Gadling...

"Before watching this video, I was unaware that it's possible to intentionally be inverted or airborne in a kayak, let alone both at once.

If you love river sports and/or beautiful cinematography, then settle in for three and half pulse-raising minutes and check out this trailer for River Root's kayaking film dubbed Frontier.

Featuring scenes from Mexico, China, Iceland, Norway, the U.S., and Canada, Frontier follows a group of kayakers as they explore some of the world's most powerful rivers and seemingly impassable whitewater. The full length film is due out on DVD this month and is available for pre-order on the River Roots website. Needless to say, if the full film features more scenes like the final clip of the video, then I'll definitely be ordering a copy."

Stephen also deserves credit for getting me hooked on this other epic adventure video... 2 more things on the bucketlist!

This guy will be all over the radio in a couple months

No typo "The Weeknd" is one of the most catchy slow jamz album i've heard in a while! This guy is going to be mixed in to all kinds of tracks coming up. Free mixtape can be downloaded at (slightly NSFW mix-tape art... boobie!)

Allegedly “shrouded in mystery” despite social media presence (with accompanying photos) on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Soundcloud, and YouTube, as well as major support from fellow Torontonian Drake, alternative R&B act the Weeknd -- a solo outlet for vocalist Abel Tesfaye... filled with drug references (and vid and pics) and lyrics longing for sexy time. Overall a great little album that is kind of "like 4am drunk face dance lounge music".

Also Robocop remix?! Slightly disturbing, but surprisingly well edited. And we all love that 70's show.

Although probably left best for a new post (we all know Russell Brand is a lucky guy) so is BB! Before you wind the party down, Benny has released a fun new REEEEEmix! (Warning, its no satisfaction distraction)

Yes, the Bruce Dickenson

I haven't a clue why this band sounds so familiar... only 1 song really hit numero uno in the US (as I recall, it was in 1976). Oh wait, its Don't Fear the Reaper, a perfect credit song to a Six Feet Under episode... The band Blue Oyster Cult was thankfully already on my itunes, and I realized that I also loved the hook from Burning for You.... I'm pretty sure it must have come up on my Journey pandora station a few times.

Blue Oyster Cult - I'm Burning For You by killaayla

This band is still around apparently since 1967, and originally was called Soft White Underbelly (named after a WWII zing from Winston Churchill describing Italy), a name they still used occasionally when playing small gigs during the 70's and 80's. The band originally formed in Long Island, NY and after one fateful bad review of the 1969 Filmore east, the manager decided to change their name. And pretty much every time they released a poorly received album: first to Oaxaca, then to the Stalk-Forrest Group, and finally the Santos Sisters before settling with BOC.

Here is a new band I was referred to by one of our dedicated fans.. and new up and coming band that is surprisingly catchy... and almost a modern twist of Blue Oyster mixed with a bit of Third Eye Blind vs. Silversun Pickups.

Classy ending... let the credits roll (sorry, no gay dexter in this one!)

I put my pants on just like the rest of you, one leg at a time. Except when my pants are on, I make gold records

songs that might sound like other songs

great fun new song by the strokes reminds me of a song I used to listen to as a kid! (internetz ftw!)

Here is the strokes song first... who just released this album after a second round of recording to make sounds more inspired by bands like MGMT, Crystal Casteles, Arctic Monkeys by experimenting with different production techniques.

Here is one of ottmar lieberts best known instrumentals... (one of my nostagically inclined favorite songs of all time)

I know the above two songs are only vaguely similar... but girl talk got me confused with which song he sampled from! You decide: smashing pumpkins vs. layla... rod steward vs. shakira... but seriously, i still can't believe queen copied vanilla ice.
