Is Joel Plaskett Emergency the best thing to come out of Canada since Molson xxx? Short answer, yes. Canadian answer, eh. I mean just check out his video for "Fashionable People". The dude looks like Michael Cera and sounds like Tom Petty. I bet he has to beat the poon off of him with a stick. I was sad to learn that Joel Plaskett recently passed though, on account of drowning in pussy. Nah just kidding, my man is still slaying to this day. I will say, when the song started talking about fashionable people doing questionable things I couldn't help but think of one celebrity in particular. Yup, you guessed, I'm talking about Frank Stallone. Check this funky track out below which is off of JPE's 2007 album Ashtray Rock.

It's been a minute since I've listened to Skizzy Mars, but "Hit Me Harder" popped up on my soundcloud stream the other day and I couldn't wait to give it a listen. Needless to say, I was instantly hooked by the new track and haven't been able to stop listening to it. This new song will be on Skiz's upcoming Alone Together album which is due out April 8th. Stream it below.

Do you like American music? I like American music. Don't you like American music, baby? I want you to hold me, I want your arms around me. I want you to hold me baby. Did you do too many drugs? I did too many drugs. Did you do too many drugs too, baby? Nothing like some classic Violent Femmes to start your week off on the right foot. And yes, I like "American Music". They didn't know the music was in my soul baby...

If you are sitting there wondering why Little T is calmly singing about making mistakes instead of angrily rapping about Shaniqua not living here no more, well you're not alone. Actually, if you understand any of that previous statement, then you most certainly are alone. Loser. And if you have absolutely no clue what I am talking about, join the club. What I was referencing was the fact that Tim Fite made a "Big Mistake" in a previous lifetime where he was one half of the "hip hop" group Little T and One Track Mike who had a "hit" song in 2001 called "Shaniqua". You may remember it, I believe it was Buzzworthy at one moment in time, but most likely you forgot about it completely. But as the song says, everyone gets to make one big mistake, and I am willing to forgive and forget. Especially since this track is so damn catchy and enjoyable. This song is off of Tim's 2008 album Fair Ain't Fair, which is loaded with one great track after another. Check it out in video form below...

Great tune I just came across here from The Menzingers, a punk quartet out of Scranton, PA. And I gotta say, there's something so familiar yet forgotten about their sound that I just can't seem to put my finger on. This track, "Good Things" off of their 2012 album On The Impossible Past, is just full of such emotion that it is sure to stir up some lost memories that years of Jack Daniels therapy had supposedly taken care of. Give these guys a listen and check out more about their new album and current tour over at their website...

I happened to watch the teen horror flick Unfriended the other day when it was on television. Not that it was a movie I was particularly interested in watching, but I caught it from the beginning and the first few minutes kept my attention. Don't judge me... Anywho, besides Blaire being a total sociopath and a bitch, the movie was fairly entertaining. For me though, the best part came when the credits started rolling and "We On" by B. Cooper started playing. This song was originally released in 2011 on B.C.'s Cashier of the Month album and then appeared again on the Unfriended soundtrack. The song and style kind of comes across as a mix between Big Sean and Scarface to me and is a chill tune perfect for those warm weather playlists you're getting ready right now. Check it out below.

Well I figured today was as good as any day to post "Any Day" by Typical Cats, wouldn't you say? If you have a problem with that, well you just better stay out of my way, or you'll pay. Listen to what I say! Then after I'm done we can go eat some hay, make things out of clay and lay by the bay? I just may. What do ya say? Yes? Well, okay...

This song seems perfect for a Monday. It's upbeat, catchy and makes you forget just how much of a son of a bitch Monday's can be. "Earthquakes and Sharks", besides being two things I do not ever want to encounter, come together in this seemingly fun-loving song by Brandtson to talk about all of the "great" things there are in Mexico and California. So while you might be thinking that things couldn't get worse on the shittiest day of the week, just realize that most likely you don't have to deal with earthquakes or sharks. And if you do, well just listen to the song anyways to make yourself feel better. This track is off of Brandtson's 2006 album Hello, Control. I gotta say that it's pretty amazing that this song came out 7 years before Sharknado. Ahead of their time...

Chances are you are struggling to get going this morning. Whether it was from all the drinking you had to do in order to make last night's Superbowl watchable or because you were huffing paint down on the corner with the bums again, you probably need something to ease you back into this week like an old man into a nice warm bath. Lucky for you, The Lumineers felt that this was the appropriate time to release a new song off of their forthcoming sophomore album Cleopatra, and it has everything you need and more. The new track "Ophelia" comes on soft and tickles your eardrums with some soothing piano which leads directly into those tranquil harmonies that we've all come to love from this trio out of Denver, Colorado. New album is due out April 8th...

This new track from Bronze Radio Return popped up on Spotify the other day when I was listening to a few random playlists I came across and needless to say, I like it a lot. It's just such an incredibly upbeat song that you find yourself anxiously waiting for the song to be over just so you can hit the repeat button again. Fun fact about this sextet out of Hartford, Connecticut: The name Bronze Radio Return was inspired by an old radio that lead singer Chris Henderson grew up listening to in his fathers art studio in Maine. The band now likes to think that the music they create pays homage to the music they grew up listening to. Pretty neat stuff, huh? "Light Me Up" is the lead single off of the band's newly released album of the same name...
