the parlor mob - "can't keep no good boy down"
i first heard these dudes the other night while looking at some of the bands that are lined up for this year's sxsw, and kind of wondered where they've been all my life. love it!
bona roba - "the slip"
this was one of one of my favorite songs way back in '06, when i was turned onto rockstar inxs contestant neal carlson. turns out he had a great rolling stones-y band called bona roba, which coincidentally included lady gaga's current boyfriend luc carl. RANDOM!
rock 'n' roll soldiers - "anthem"
unfortunately, the memory i associate with this song is feeling badass and happy as i listened to it in the car, leaving my morning shift at dunkin' donuts when i was 19. still good though!
injected - faithless
a good 1/8 of my sophomore year of high school was spent trying to convince everyone that these guys were good. i still believe it!
