Roxy Music: "Dance Away"

For some reason, that Best Coast song reminded me of this Roxy Music song...

Best Coast: "When I'm With You"

Really well-done surf pop, at least I like it. Wonder if McDonald's knows about this video? Maybe he's the clown from McDowell's...

Beloved Rogue: "Daysleeping"

Brooklyn band, looks like they've just released an EP so far... check em out at www.belovedrogue.com. I really like their sound... Heard this on NPR Second Stage podcast.

Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band: "Albatross, Albatross"

I like these guys a lot, so far. Their new album sounds better to me than the last one (released less than a year ago, another good sign).

This video is for "Albatross, Albatross" from last year's self-titled album... Also check out their new album Where the Messengers Meet, I've been enjoying the song "Leaving Trails".

Old Stuff Friday (Texas Rock Edition): ZZ Top, Flatlanders, 13th Floor Elevators

ZZ Top: "LaGrange"

Flatlanders: "Sitting On Top of the World"

13th Floor Elevaors: "You're Gonna Miss Me"

Asteroid: "Time"

Can't remember where I got the tip on these guys, somebody on Rate Your Music compared them to someone I like, so here you are... Swedish stoner rock... a bright line if there ever was one. Their 2010 album is called Asteroid II, which brings back fond memories of other imaginative bands who called their second album II: Meat Puppets, Led Zeppelin... okay, there weren't that many, were there?

Guided by Voices: "Glad Girls" and Circus Devils: "The Girls Will Make It Happen"

Just your basic genius guitar-driven rock song... sometimes the Four P's are out of balance, and it's almost all Pop.

And sometimes, the Psych side takes over... and you get Circus Devils.
