Music Monday? That sounds like it’s going to become a feature. Don’t worry. It won’t. Unless it does, in which case, I’ve lied to you. Whatever the result, here’s some nifty musical stuff of which you should be cognizant. No, it’s not all new, so quit acting so cutting-edge.
I always thought that staccato guitar-strum thing in “Tear You Apart” sounded like that bit in “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” and this proves it. The addition of Joy Division seals the deal.
Who: A Plus D
What: Love Will Tear You Apart (She Wants Originality)
Continuing my love affair with the wonderfully voiced and perfectly produced Rihanna, there’s this treatment of UMBARELLA ELLA ELLA ELLA HEY. Dang, it’s so infectious, I’m even typing like that.
Who: Divide & Kreate
What: Umbrella (Divide & Kreate Remix)
Catchy song plus nostalgic Johnny Quest-style animation equals big fun.
Who: Peter, Bjorn, and John
What: The video for “Young Folks”
What’s this Friday? Why it’s the Morrissey show at Chastain, of course. I’ll be there with tears in my eyes and gladiolas in hand. Sounds like about a dozen of us are going.
