I 'm acually not really sold on these guys music to be honest. But I wanted to post something halloween themed and this is what I came up with. This track is pretty fun though. Something to freak right out on. Right? Just to add what The Horrors lack in sound they make up with there absolute flawless style.

I have been holding off posting some tracks by this very special pop act from Sweden for too long now. I will say that this is my favorite band of 2007 and they put out my favorite record of the year "Boylife". These are special.

What can I say? I'm a sucker for the spikey guitar delay. And also obviously..."the sex has made me stupid the sex has made me stupid the sex has made me stupid."
How do these robots know so much?

I was first introduced to Kate Bush through The Futureheads when they covered "Hounds of Love". I bought her album and instantly fell in love with the opening track "Running up that Hill". It had a real magical sound to me. Now that song has now been covered by gloomy NYC band The Chromatics and they certainly do the track no shame.

This song is featured in the movie "Dedication" which I just posted the trailer for below. Also on the soundtrack is "Ask Me Anything" by The Strokes which makes this movie even more cool if that was even possible from what we see in the trailer. Love the casting for this. I'm a huge fan of Mandy. I think she is very underrated. This seems to have a Garden State thing going which obviously isn't a bad thing. I find ironic that Mandy who dated Braff is the lead chick in this. Then there is the trendy indie soundtracks but where Grarden State mostly had a acoustic bare sound this is filled with lush keyboards and a abundance of mellotrons and synth's all over the tracks by The Strokes, Fischerspooner, and Deerhoof. Well played.

"Give me your heart. Give me your soul."
Love this band. Always will. The synth's in this are the most lovely part. And I will give them the award for best cover art in 2007.

This track has SERIOUS a.d.d.! Like Of Montreal meets Devo meets Scissor Sisters. Any song that challenges me to "get your hands on some cheap wine" is a instant classic in my book.
"Music to have asthma to."

My Dad once sat me down and told me "Kevin your an asshole. But I'm still gonna love you even though your an asshole."
To this day it sticks out and seems so surreal to me. It was the sort of thing that Wes Anderson would write. That sort of sad humour.
