Song of the Day – Tuesday 12/28/2010 White Denim December 28, 2010

Sorry MizMuzers…I’ve been trying to write today’s and yesterday’s posts via my iPhone as Big Brother has blocked access to all social networking, blogs, merchant sites, and anything fun at my day job.  Please forgive any missing links, mislabeled pictures, incorrect info—basically, the post below may be total bollocks…

White Denim is a four-piece hailing from Austin, Texas.  Their music draws influence from dub, psychedelic rock, blues, punk rock, progressive rock, soul, jazz, experimental rock with home-based recording, jamming approach, intense looping work and unusual song structures…

You can download the band’s latest LP, Last Day of Summer on their official website for FREE here!

Song of the Day – Wednesday 12/22/2010 Captain Beefheart December 22, 2010

Today’s SOTD is dedicated to Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart who passed away on Friday…

Don Van Vliet was an American musician and visual artist best known by the stage name Captain Beefheart.  The LAist stated: “Trying to explain the world of Captain Beefheart to the uninitiated is a fruitless task. The music that Don Van Vliet and his shifting crew of dedicated accomplices known as the Magic Band unleashed between 1965 and 1982 defies description and confounds any attempts at drawing a comparison. The phrase “Beefheart-like” has come to be used as shorthand by music writers trying to describe any old thing with a bent toward oddball beats and dissonant chords, but it’s impossible to get a sense of what Beefheart is about by listening to any or all of the bands trying to live up to that description.”

Song of the Day – Tuesday 5/4/2010 The Black Keys May 4, 2010

Akron, Ohio’s blues-rock duo, The Black Keys, took a couple of years off to pursue solo projects, but now the boys are back together and have realized that absence truly makes the heart grow fonder…After pursuing separate music ventures playing together just felt right as drummer, Patrick Carney states, “the most important thing we learned was how easily we communicate with each other. I think it’s much easier for Dan and I to play with each other than it is for us to work with other people, but we really just started to appreciate it recently.”

The band’s sixth album, Brothers will drop on 5/18/2010 and they will headline at the Fox Theater in Oakland on 9/29/2010.
