Jam of the Day: Aquilo - "I Gave It All"


As a rule, I don't discount any song/genre of music until I have heard it for myself and determine whether I like it or not. Pop music seems to the be the one area where certain friends of mine become surprised that I like something. In my opinion, if a song is good, a song is good, and I will be the first person to try and get the word out. There is nothing monumentally striking about atmospheric pop duo Aquilo, aside from the fact that they know their way around a dramatic ballad. "I Gave It All" is just 4 minutes of pop song beauty.

New: The Smashing Pumpkins - "Being Beige"


First peek at The Smashing Pumpkins' new record Monuments to an Elegy. You can listen to the track over at Pitchfork.

25th Anniversary: Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine


Hard to believe this album came out 25 years ago today. Pretty Hate Machine was a seminal college record for me and still sounds as good as it did back then. While the album is chock full of amazing singles like "Head Like A Hole," "Down In It," and "Sin," by far my favorite track is and was "That's What I Get."

Video: Interpol - "My Desire"


Interpol plays to a half-empty dive bar in this lonely clip for their song "My Desire."
