 got an email the other day alerting me to a KCRW 4 songs you should listen to right now blog post.  The group they were highlighting is called Gold Spectacles.  The London band is still pretty new, just 300 “likes” on Facebook but some positive hype translating to some spins on soundcloud for their song “Steal You Away.”  I think KCRW called it baroque-pop?  Groovy beat…I could get into this song if I were on a mission.

London is a big place, so it stands to reason we’d hear from another group form the Capital.  New Arcades so a synth dream wave.  I kinda hear some Hot Fuss era Killers on this song “Don’t Let Go.” They say, “Think of blue skies, urban nightlife and hazy sunrises…”


Finally a band from Leeds aping the style of Vampire Weekend.  The group is called Marsicans.  This song is right good fun.

Go with yourself.

Had the strangest dream last night (yeah, this is a dream blog).

I have been reading tons of fantasy lately as I plug away through George RR Martin’s A Dance With Dragons.  Lots of sorcery and shape-shifters and things that go bump in the night.

Watched a bit of True Blood last night… lots of sorcery and shape-shifters and things that go bump in the night… and tits and vampires with perfect abs.

Last night I dreamed that I could change my appearance and I changed into an “Eric The Sexy Vampire” type dude to seduce Coral.

I tried to get her to cheat on me, with me… which she did.  It was sexy times.  When I had enough, I did the big reveal… “muhahahaha, it is I!  Evil Warlock-Husband Jeremy, not a sexy vampire.  I can’t believe you cheated on me!”

Coral said, “I didn’t cheat on you… it was you I had sex with…”

wah wah wah…. she’s always so much smarter than me, even in my dreams!

Evil Warlock-Husband Jeremy will continue to plot…


Check this rad jam out… it is from the True Blood episode “She’s Not There.”

The Zombies (who are amazing By-the-by) originally dropped this hot #2 single in 1964 and is a highlight of my 60s sets at Veneto Lounge.

When the credits rolled on True Blood and this song came up… I instantly recognized it and Coral was jiving on it too… but what is this cover?

It is Nick Cave and Neko Case… the song was commissioned for the show by the music supervisor who happens to be a radio DJ in LA on KCRW.

Neko Case + Nick Cave – “She’s Not There”
