Musical Taste: Portal 2 and The National – Exile Vilify

Since it’s late, I’m tired/getting sick and I just finished Portal 2, I thought I’d leave you with this lovely fan made music video for one of the songs from the game, The National’s Exile Vilify.

Musical Taste vs Trailer Watch: Fight for Your Right, Revisited

I…don’t really know what to say. This has an absurdly huge cast, is a sequel for a 25 year old music video, and could be truly amazing, or a spectacular miss. Either way, color me intrigued. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the red-band trailer for Fight for Your Right, Revisited. Fight for Your Right, […]

Musical Taste Video of the Day: Ramones Live (with cheesy Sci-Fi movies)

From NPR’s All Songs Considered blog, we have this awesome recording of the Ramones live at The Palladium in 1978, all with a running background of monster and science fiction movies. I’ve always felt that punk rock and geekiness are a good fit, both a bit of a counter to the mainstream. And this video, […]

Musical Taste: Dropkick Murphys – Going Out in Style

Dropkick Murphys – Going Out in Style St. Patricks Day is next week, so it seems only appropriate that in building up to a week of blackouts and pretending to be Irish, those staples of Boston Irish Punk, Dropkick Murphys would release a new whiskey and folklore infused record. And with their first in four […]

Musical Taste: Daft Punk, Kid Cudi and Tom Waits

According to Pitchfork, the soundtrack has been pushed back from its original November 22 release date to December 7. However, if you head over to the […]

Musical Taste Link of the Day: Tron: Legacy Soundtrack getting closer

So. Tron: Legacy. Ever since it was announced that genius electronica musicians Daft Punk were doing the soundtrack, we’ve dealt with a steady stream of fake music attributed to them. It looks like that time is over. While the website doesn’t do much yet (except play a fantastic bit of the score) there is a […]

Musical Taste: CeeLo Green, the hit of the summer, and the Rebuttal

So if you’ve somehow missed it, over the last couple of weeks, a new single from R&B artist, CeeLo Green, has been taking the internet by storm. The song goes by the moniker “Fuck You” and is an awesomely NSFW throwback to early Motown. Initially, there was just a simple video for the song, the […]

Musical Taste Video of the Day: This Gigantic Robot Kills by MC Lars

I grew up in the 90s, and accordingly, have a soft spot for ska music. You know, you start with a typical punk song and then all of a sudden, the horns kick in and everyone is skanking (the dance, not the….well I don’t even know how you’d verb the other thing). So when I […]
