Various Re-post-ions: Two Minutes to Late Night (again)

We try not to shine the light on the same sight over and over again, but Two Minutes to Late Night is just that good. Also this week’s cover includes long time friend of the blog Adam Turla from Murder by Death (along with members of My Chemical Romance, Distillers, Thursday and Soul Glo) covering an Annie Lennox classic, so you know we have to share the love.

This Day In Music History

Today is Jim Yester of The Association‘s birthday. The late 60’s sunshine pop group had a string of hits including “Windy,” “Cherish,” and “Along Comes Mary,” but our favorite has always been their perfectly dreamy version of the Addrisi Brothers song “Never My Love.” Happy Birthday Jim, thanks for the tunes.

Tuesday Tip-Off: Billie Eilish

We know that we don’t normally talk about mainstream pop, but we also recognize when respect is due. Not only do we unabashedly love Billie Eilish‘s music (including this new banger) but we also love her sense of humor, subversive attitude and swagger. Some scumbags on the internet making comments about how much weight you’ve gained? Make a music video of you running around a mall stealing food while singing “Get my pretty name out of your mouth.” It’s every bit as punk rock as when Joe Talbot of IDLES sings “I want to cater for my haters…eat shit” and we (hand clap) are (hand clap) here (hand clap) for (hand clap) it.
