The Soviettes

silverunity: The best way to describe The Soviettes is through a little mental imagery. Close your eyes. Bravo for realizing that you can’t read with your eyes shut. Imagine the B-52s. Now imagine the B-52s taking a little too much Ritalin. Still with me? Good, now you have a good idea what The Soviettes sound […]

Atom and His Package

Sasha:SilverUnity introduced me to Atom and His Package (aka Adam Goren) a few years ago and I can’t say I was impressed, in fact I think I was annoyed. It didn’t last though, his songs are so catchy that you don’t even realize they’re in your head until you start wondering “why am I singing […]

The Mountain Goats

Sasha: I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write a Mountain Goats post. The Mountain Goats are John Darnielle and whoever he decides to make music with (currently the wonderful Peter Hughs.)

Your Father is Unaware

Sasha: MP3: The New Pornographers- Your Daddy Don’t Know (Toronto cover) This song has been in near-constant rotation in the Housewives house for a couple months now. Originally appearing on the soundtrack to FUBAR: The Movie, this Toronto cover is a perfect mix of bravado and cheesiness. I love the way the New Pornographers stay […]

Teenage Bottlerocket

silverunity: As much as I love punk, trying to find good light-hearted punk music is almost like trying to find intelligence in the Bush administration… downright impossible. However, Wyoming’s Teenage Bottlerocket delivers true pop-punk in the veins of the Ramones, Groovie Ghoulies, and The Vapids with their cd “Total”. The songs are catchy, fast and […]
