weezer

late to the this party, i know.

O.K. I realize that this band has already been hyped to death and halfway exists to give people an excuse to use their name in ironic or non-ironic ways, but I was shuffling through a bunch of music yesterday in anticipation of end-of-year listmaking and goddamn if this song isn't ridiculously catchy.

Black Kids -- "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You" [mp3]


Like so many songs that I end up overplaying, there's just the tiniest bit of lyrical ambiguity. The recording is fuzzy enough that I can't tell whether it's meant to be a teen girlcrush jealousy story? Also there's some shouted counting and rhyming words with the same words awesomeness.

age of consent cover

While I'm in the mood for posting things that you might already know about, there is this Kevin Drew cover of "Age of Consent" [mp3].

It was recorded as part of an interview on a PRI show called Fair Game [publicbroadcasting] that also included an interview with Noah Baumbach. The show is pretty much exactly what I imagine that conservative haters of public radio assume all public radio is like.
