TNT’s Music 6/4/10

1. “Strawberry Quick” by Sandman Viper Command – Great track!  Good for any situation walking, driving, chilling, drinking strawberry quick, whatever.  Indie infused with a garage sound that’s actually catchy.  They’re playing NXNE June 17th and 18th, if you should happen to find yourself in Toronto, ON.
2. Paint The Town Red” by The Hotcakes – This is my favorite song from The Hotcakes and it was amazing live (saw them 5/25 @ Mercury Lounge).  A great anthem, I always try to out sing this track.  Although I never do, the important thing is that I feel like I do.
3. Pin Down” by Leah Siegel – Such a NYC gem!  Leah Siegel’s voice gives me the chills while scaring the shit out of me; a dark Judy Garland who plays guitar, if you will.  You need to listen to all of her clever lyrics and seriously catch a live show (sign up for her mailing list for show announcements).  Just saw her 6/2 @ Bowery Electric w/ bassist Tim Luntzel; her haunting, soulful voice had the room’s full attention.
4. “Age Of Reason” by American Classic – Another up and coming band to keep an eye on is American Classic.  Their set at Maxwell’s last night was addicting, leaving me wanting more.  Kevin Lyman- put this band on VWT 2011, I’m sick of hearing crappy punk rock wannabes with minimal talent.  Do not miss American Classic on 6/19 @ School of Rock in S. Hackensack, NJ
5. “Johnny Got A Boom Boom” by Imelda May – Rockabilly/Blues from Dublin?  Why not!  Imedla May performed “How High The Moon” with Jeff Beck at the 2010 Grammy’s and I’ve been enthralled with her ever since.
6. “I Need $$$” by The White White Lights – I think we can all relate to this song, hence, why it’s on this list.  Also, The White White Lights rock; they remind me of what the Yeah Yeah Yeahs used to be.
7. Coma Politik” by Theodore Grimm – Another amazing rock band from northern NJ, Theodore Grimm will rock your face off.  I hear psychedelic rock that you can dance to.  I am well overdue to catch a live show.  Check out the song “Pullin Shape” too, ce magnifique!
8. “Home” by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Hoverbee says:  I didn’t like “Home” at first, but it grew on me ridiculously.  I like the male/female call and response singing/talking action, the whistling, the tambourine, the horns, and in some parts, the guy’s voice reminds me a bit of Johnny Cash.  It manages to be country without sucking which is, in my opinion, REALLY hard to do.  They are definitely folk and also a bit gospel, which also kicks ass if done correctly.  It’s more about the feelings the songs give me: like I don’t live in 2010.
9. “This Fiction” by Adelaide’s Cape – This acoustic folk/rock band from the UK deserves your attention.  I love all the finger picking in their music, don’t know why, they just do it well with their catchy rhythms.
10. “Another Time” by Brahms – I saw Brahms on 5/25 @ Pianos and let me tell you, they might just make list of bands that I’d hire for a house party.  Currently on tour with Passion Pit and Tokyo Police Club, Brahms is making their electro rock voices and laptops heard all over major cities in the US.
11. “Passion Pit Sleepyhead Remix” by The Knocks – I’m not a huge Passion Pit fan, but I do enjoy this remix by NYC Duo The Knocks, another group to keep an eye on this summer!  Originals (loving “Can’t Shake Your Love” at the moment) or covers, The Knocks can conquer any sound.
12. “Burn It Down” by AWOLNATION – When NVMP meets up with Andrew W.K. @VWT 2010, the first thing I want to ask him is “When are you teaming up with AWOLNATION?” because I think both bands would tear the stage up for an unforgettable show.  Oh!  And to have your mind complete blown out of your head, check out  It’s too cool to even describe, but I will tell you that it’s in 3D!

TNT’s Music

1. “His Story”  by  Not Ok – Some true punk music!  Yet another Australian punk band that I feel in love with.  This song will kick your ass and make you wonder just what Christopher Columbus did…listen to the spoken breakdown, I guess it’s the bridge.  Take it or leave it, what do you think?
2. “Set The World On Fire!”  by  HELL&LULA – Such an awesome beat!  Is it rock?  Techno?  Electro?  I don’t care, this is a great genre spanning song.  Here’s a tip…Pop out our MySpace Playlist for more continuous listening and less clicking.
3. “No Medication”  by  Washington Square Park – NEW BAND ALERT!  Okay, drop everything because there’s a new punk band coming out of NJ that deserves your attention!  Check out “No Medication”, this song got me hooked.  Coming soon- WSP live show review and a few words with front man Max Rauch and guitarist Keith Williams.
4. “Texas Tea”  by  Young the Giant – This band used to be called The Jakes, proving that the name of your band has nothing to do with your music.  “Texas Tea” is a catchy pop hook with melodies that paint a vocal masterpiece.  Have a listen…
5. “I Don’t Mind”  by  Polly Mackey & the Pleasure Principle – I fell in love with Polly’s deep and rich vocals a long time ago, this is one of my favorite songs by the group.  This indie pop/rock band from the UK is a group to keep an eye on.
6. “Early Warnings”  by  Foreign Born – I’ve been talking about this band a lot lately, but how could I not?  It’s soothing and memorable all in one, the guitars really make this song come alive.  I love it.
7. “Embers and Ashes”  by  The Static Cult – This band needs to come to the USA ASAP!  They sound like next Bad Religion/Rise Against.  Bottom line, they rock!  This is one of my favorite songs, also check out “Hold Tight Hope.”
8. “Crawl Like A Dog (feat. Mark Lanegan)  by  Creature With The Atom Brain – I’m not really sure why I like this song, but I do.  Maybe you will too.  Definitely some similarities to Rob Zombie relaxed vocals.
9. “Tunnelvision”  by  Here We Go Magic – I’m hooked in the first five seconds of this song.  I love this indie/folk sound, AMAZING!  I hope this band is playing the Siren Festival this year, hailing from Brooklyn, NY, I see no reason they wouldn’t be invited to play, but let this be the first ask.
10. “Why Didn’t You Get A Haircut?”  by  Math the Band – I don’t care why you didn’t get a hair cut, but I do care about how much fun I’m having while listening to this song.  I could imagine myself doing a speedy robot dance to this song, lots of jumping is also included.  Anyway, less about my dance skills and more about Math the Band.  They just started a tour with MC CHRIS, immediately after their performances at Bamboozle.  Hope you can catch a show, I’ll be at Maxwell’s in Hoboken for the June 30th date if you wanted to buy me a drink for introducing you to this killer duo.  Maybe we can share a bowl of Candy Cereal with Math the Band, check out this scrumdiddlyumptious video. 
11. “Shake It Loose”  by  The Kicks – I saw The Kicks in NYC last week and was instantly blown away by this talented Nashville band.  This band does not fit into any one genre, which is why I featured two of their songs on this playlist.  “Shake It Loose” has driving guitar riffs that make you want to move.  I suggest catching a live show soon, some of their guitar solos are sick!
12. “Good Morning”  by The Kicks – When I heard this song live, I though “Instant radio hit”.  This is one of their slower jams, but still packed with power.  It gave me chills when I heard it live, its vocal beauty is gorgeous.  I love harmonies that bounce off the walls with resonance.  TNT is impressed.


14 Songs that TNT can’t get enough of this week. April 16, 2010

Hello Non-Posers!  Thought you’d like some new music to check out because, honestly, who doesn’t love new music?  These songs are from NVMP’s MySpace Profile Playlist and will be up all week for your listening pleasure.  Click on the Artist’s name; I’ve provided their MySpace links, so if you like what you hear, please add them as a friend.  Hope you enjoy the music!  They’re all great songs, but I highly suggest “Every Band in the U.S.A.” by The Fold (which mocks Miley Cyrus and shockingly, every band in the U.S.A.  It’s hilarious but sadly true), “Dream City” by Free Energy (Makes me feel like I’m in California, strutting around in Venice Beach, CA.  I dare you to listen to this song and not strut your stuff, whether you’re in California or not), “Caution Wet Floor” by Miz Metro (I just couldn’t get enough of her this week, she’s fabulous!  Watch out Gwen, Metro’s wailing out strong!), and “When We Were Young” by Thieves of Aon” (Dear Thieves of Aon, please come tour in the US, I wish to see you live as you are currently one of my new favorite bands.
