New Music For The Weekend: 5/18/07

Burningpilot is another one of Transgressive Records' brilliant finds. Although I don't love their name (my Dad is a pilot), I definitely love their blustering post punk. My favorite song of the moment is "Can't Kid A Kidder," which features a killer synth riff laid over top of a killer guitar riff. This song is so catchy that it's basically ridiculous. Also check out their old school video for "Two Words, Two Syllables" above, which reminds me of The Talking Heads.

The Hard Tomorrows
The Hard Tomorrows will be entering the studio soon to begin work on a new record, which is fantastic news for fans of the electrifying DC quintet. Their criminally overlooked debut was one of my favorite albums of 2006--it's so good that I still listen to the record once a week almost twelve months after it was released. Download their new wave-y cover of the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks" below, which was apparently recorded for a teen movie.

Patrick Wolf
Patrick Wolf: A couple weeks ago, Patrick Wolf announced that he was retiring from music. Thankfully, it turned out to be a big misunderstanding--the flame haired singer will continue playing his bizarre mix of electro-tinged, orchestral pop music for at least another day. Make sure to check out "Get Lost" from Wolf's third album, The Magic Position. The song's bouncy melody and Motown influenced backing vocals are joy personified. Believe me, it'll get stuck in your head for days.
