It’s the Monday after a pretty exciting weekend for myself, and being sleep deprived and hungover is no way to go through life, son. Come on in and get your Dylan on.
As The Onion and other publications could tell you, college kids love them some Bob Marley. In fact, there’s a good chance that on every dorm room floor and in every frat house there are at least two Marley posters for every three rooms. It’s just science.
Oh yeah, it’s that time again. Ring the bell, GMODT is in session. Today we have Lee Fields, an old-school soul singer in the save vein as James Brown, Otis Redding etc. His just released album “My World” is recorded in the spirit of those greats but also with an eye to a more current audience. The music may be indebted to an early 70′s sound, but there are just enough modern flourishes to keep things interesting. As a recent…
It’s another Monday and you know that means- like it or not, it’s GMODT. Today I have the new indie “super group” called The Dead Weather, a band made-up of members of such groups as The Kills, Queens of The Stone Age, The Raconteurs and most importantly, Jack White from the White Stripes. Yeah, that makes three bands Jack White has started and, unlike the other two, this one is actually pretty good! If your a fan of Led Zeppelin…
Mention Issac Hayes to people of a certain age and the two reference points you get are probably the “Shaft” theme song and the voice of Chef on South Park. While both those things are pretty great, Issac Hayes had a lot of quality music that doesn’t really fit a specific recognizable niche. These excellent tunes sometimes slip through the cracks but I’m here to make sure they get some recognition.
I’m sure after the intense “Transformers” fire storm the podcast caused, we all could use some music to unite us once again. Today I present to you the El Michels Affair, who have this decade been either studio musicians or playing back-up to the likes of Amy Winehouse or The Wu-Tang Clan.
I hate to be the one to break this news, but a performer by the name of Michael Jackson passed away last week. I think at this point the only way people can relate to this guy are their own personal stories about experiences with his music.
I know what your thinking: Mondays are a drag and I need that little extra something to get me going through the day. What might that be? Friends? Family? No. The answer: bongos. Lot’s of em. This week on GMODT we feature the one and only Incredible Bongo Band and tracks off their sole album, “Bongo Rock”.
You wanted the best, you got the best – It’s your weekly music post by GMODT! Today we have a group called Quiet Village, whose two sole members (Joel Martin and Matt Edwards) are big names in the DJ/dance music scene.
Really, the weekend should have ended so much better. The weather was warm, summer officially arrives next week and I was confident everything was going to come up GMODT. But last night ended in a hospital waiting room and the L.A. Lakers winning another NBA title.
Has everybody already heard this Lil Wayne “Kobe Bryant” song? I can’t begin without addressing what a crime this is. How come Spike “Knick Fan for Life” Lee didn’t soundtrack “Kobe Talkin to Teammates” with this song? Also, is Kobe’s new game face intense or painful to watch? Does he just “Want A Championship That Bad” (copyright pending), or does he have indigestion?
To quote the mid-90′s sensation C & C Music Factory: Y’all ready for this? It’s that the time again where I drop some tasty treats on to the interwebs. Today we have two selections from the remix album by DFA, two New York based producers/DJ’s.
It’s a special Tuesday edition of GMODT nation, don’t think I forgot about you! Today we have the one and only Oasis, who just so happen to be the authors of the first CD I ever bought! That would be “Definitely Maybe”, their first album in 1994.
Yo, stop: GMODT time. I hope everyone had fun watching lacrosse tournaments and series deciding basketball games this weekend, and your ready to start off Monday right- on this website. On a side note, I have had the privilege of seeing into the future of this site, and let me tell you, it’s bright. Like, lens flare in the new “Star Trek” movie bright. Big things, people.
Today kids, we sloooooow it up. Stress got you down? Still pumped up from last weeks post (and sexy boots)? Then I think I have just the thing for you… some songs from mellow chillout artists like “Kid Loco” and “Thunderball”, and to class it up, the last track from Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue”.
Alright, get ready and try to experience what I’m about to chirp in your lobes, it’s Get Mitch or Die Trying! Today’s lesson- remixes! A remix can be many things, but mostly it’s an excuse for someone to say “while this song currently goes to 10, I think I can give it that extra something that makes it go to 11“.
Welcome all to another Monday!…another Monday made that much better by Get Mitch or Die Trying. I’ll keep it simple and straight to the point- today we have a young man from Cleveland, Ohio who goes by the name Kid Cudi. He’s about to expand your mind.
What it is LaxNation. It’s time for your Monday music upgrade. From GMODT central command here in Portland, OR it’s in the morning and already 60 and sunny, so some feel good music built for the spring time is on the way.
Buckle up kids, it’s time for another installment of “Get Mitch Or Die Tryin’!” Before we get things rolling, make sure you take a sec to listen to the new “Mr. BS Report” podcast, or as I like to call it “Two Guys One Podcast“. It features normal contributors Striding Man and Mr. Blue Sky along a few very special guests. Make sure you listen to the end!
