MMMorsels: Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves

I think too much. About most things, really. But mostly-right-at-this-moment I’m thinking too much about this blog. I am determined to enjoy this, not let myself turn it into something it’s not, just so I can feel superior for having ‘sacrificed’ myself for it’s well-being. At what point did all the things you love to do, turn into the things you have to finish?

You know, I should probably just send this to my therapist and save us both an hour this week.

ARTIST: The Good The Bad
TRACK: 026
SIDE DISH: Raw and Spicy Surf Rock for the Boozy Floozy in all of us. Their songs don’t have lyrics because, as they put it, “we couldn’t find [a singer] that would stand behind the drummer. But we don’t need a vocalist anyway. The music speaks for itself. We use the music so we don’t have to say I Love You.” Idealism is so charming when viewed with the hindsight of a hardened cynic.

ARTIST: Mon Khmer
TRACK: Birthplace
SIDE DISH: These boys – nay, men – out of Brooklyn are the aural equivalent of the socially-awkward nerd from high school who grew up to be the sexy architect in the tight, dark jeans at your reunion, unironically sipping a Sazerac and fiddling with his long, curly hair: intriguingly complicated, yet reassuringly honest about this whole situation we call life. Swoon!

ARTIST: The Drums
TRACK: Forever & Ever Amen
SIDE DISH: I always love it when my UK peeps turn me onto a band from Brooklyn I’ve never heard of before. What the What?

ARTIST: Wolf Gang
TRACK: The King & All of His Men
SIDE DISH: This is some synthy shit, even for me, and they’re really just a Euro-trashed derivative of The Killers, but I’ve a feeling I’ll be jamming out to this all summer. Do the tribal beats here make anyone else want to reenact the Anteater Mating Ritual from “Can’t Buy Me Love?”

ARTIST: Midnight Lion
TRACK: I Will Be King
SIDE DISH: Some more synthy fluff that I clearly have a hankerin’ for. I don’t know, I can’t explain it! But enjoy.
