TGIBitchTapes, my friends. Another week, another Friday, another awesome mix for you to listen to while preparing for a glorious weekend. Feel free to listen to this while pretending to fill out expense reports and Twittering.
1. Vivian Girls - Where Do You Run To
>>>> Think the Shangri-Las mixed with a touch of Nirvana, surf and a whole lotta reverb. Listen to these gals at least once a day. Check out the video for "Tell the World" in all its low-fi glory!
2. Iggy Pop - The Passenger
>>>> Oh, Iggy. I can forgive your creepy physique for this song alone.
3. Kanye West - Stronger
>>>> Essential before hitting the clubs, bars, raves, or book readings. You know, whatever constitutes a night out on the town!
4. TV On The Radio - Golden Age
>>>> My vote for album of 2008. The music video features dancing cops on a mountaintop above the clouds. Yeah, I know. Maah-velous.
5. Cut Copy - Lights and Music
>>>> Totally excusable to stand up and dance now.
6. Jackson 5 - I Want You Back
>>>> Classic. All I gotta say about that.
7. Sigur Ros - Gobbledigook
>>>> These guys are always up there for my favorite band and this song makes me giddy. Check out the amazing footage of Sigur Ros performing this song with fellow Icelander Bjork on drums.
8. Tilly and the Wall - Pot Kettle Black
>>>> Shares the same title with an excellent Wilco song, but these guys rock it a little bit harder. Watch'em take it to the streets!
9. The Beatles - Martha My Dear.
>>>> Don't think there needs to be any explanation for this song.
