The Do “Tightrope” from Live Sessions At Studio Pigalle (Six Degrees 2012) N —This is a freaking Janelle Monae cover. I assure you this is a good thing. http://soundcloud.com/thedo/tightrope-janelle-monae-coverBuy it!
Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra “Institutionalized” from A Tribute To Repo Man (American Laundromat 2012) N —Another home run tribute from this label. I have yet to be disappointed by any of their comps and so far this one continues the standard. Palmer knocks this out of the freaking park.Buy it!
Neon Trees “Lessons in Love (All Day, All Night) [feat. Kaskade]” from Everybody Talks / Lessons In Love 45rpm (Mercury 2012) —My daughter bought this 45 simply because it's shaped like a heart, which I've bought more expensive records for less reasons. It worked out, this is a cool bit of musical candy.Buy it!
Dragonette “I Get Around” from Galore (Interscope 2007) —Maybe I'm getting too geeky at 4am, but, thematically this song is similar to Liz Phair's 'F and Run', only this song embraces the booty call and ignores the loneliness that follows.Buy it!
Sea Monster “Psychotronic Roller Boogie Disco Queen Sock It to Me” from Live at Continental: Best of NYC, Vol. 1 (Continental NYC 2005) —This is the greatest song every recorded about any roller rink related subject matter.Buy it!
