The Mix List August 2nd, 2009: Got A Sussussus

Suspect Device – Stiff Little Fingers – The Dublin punk rockers biggest hit is an incendiary warning about a possible incineration in the middle of the late 70s back when Ireland was at war. The song has one of the great hooks i”Got a sus-sus-sus-sus-sus-sus-got a suspect device”.

Upholstery – The Beach Bums
You’ll Need thiose Fingers For Crossing – Los Campesinos
Let’s Ride – The Game (with Travis Barker)
Tomorrow Is A Long Time – Rod Stewart
Love T.K.O – Teddy Pendergrast – Left over from my soul crooner listening a coupla days ago, the former Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes was always the best vocalist to come out of the Philadelphia sound. This smash would be a hit if it was released today. Maxwell should be so lucky.

Ray Of Light – Madonna
Lenin – Arcade Fire
Panic In Detriot – David Bowie – Looks a lot like Che Guevara…

My Life – Iris Diment – The wonderful country singer is going to be at the Highline August 22nd.

New Perspective – Panic At The Disco
Folding Chair – Regina Spektor
The Sandman, The Brakeman and Me – Monsters Of Folk – And here is the # 3 (guess Mike Mogis is producing) this time by M. Ward and it’s plonk in the middle. A middling folk swinger -pretty and pretty nothing much.

I See Monsters – Ryan Adams – Speaking of monsters: Adams in the most prolific and consistent songwriter this side of Conor. This gorgeous folk obscurity is off “Love Is Hell”.

Imma Do It- Fabolous and Kobe – I dunno Kobe but his rap on this masterful song off “Loso’s Way” produces an up and come. Fab uses a strings sample to great advantage and the paranoid lyric is very funny and very clever:

C Is The Heavenly Option – Heavenly – Heavenly were part of the Twee Core movement and this song -Los Camp’s cover introduced em to me, should be being played in High Schools all all the country
