This is a site by music fans (and musicians) for music fans. We’ve got a serious itch for good music (as we’re sure you do as well if you’re reading this) and MEDICATION is the scratch (so to speak). Take your medicine kids. Swallow this. What you'll find below is a variety of music hand picked by us and our close friends just for you! Don't you feel special?!?! These songs are only posted for evaluation purposes, so please don’t trip out. We here at “The Head” really love and support well-made music, and make every effort to support the artists we dig on by purchasing their work (we only post shit that we own). The purpose of this site is to simply share good music with others who will also hopefully continue to support these artists. It’s a win-win situation, got it champ? We encourage everyone to purchase music, concert tickets and $47 dollar tour shirts in XXL from the artists you feel merit your dollar bills (if you are gonna listen to something again and again... why not?). We also encourage everyone to never have kids, do drugs & worship Satan though. In other words, if you happen to be one of the fancy-pants that own the copyright to one of these songs and would like a song removed for our site, please don’t sue us. Please just let us know by emailing us at email@example.com. We’re not here too harsh anyone’s mellow. If you are a band, label or distributor and think we'd be interested in your music, please feel free to send us a cd to Buddyhead PO BOX 1268 HOLLYWOOD, CA 90078. Feel free to chew on our nuts too biiiiiiotch!
I'm feelin' this song right now... I swear there's something in the air. It's either that or Andy Weatherall and his band, Two Lone Swordsmen, are reading my mind again. "No Girl In My Plan" is gonna be coming out soon on their new record called "Wrong Meeting" (which is killer by the way). if you didn't check out the last full length "From the Double Gone Chapel" you might wanna get on that immediately, they cover The Gun Club's - "Sex Beat". These guy win.
Happy fuckin' Saturday... I'm in a killer mood and I'm pretty sure it's due to the french press coffee.
Here's a youtube clip previewing snippets from the new Queens record... it's really short but if I remember correctly Aaron told me he was still able to burn rope to it. It's gonna be called Era Vulgaris which if you move all the letters around spells Rad Vagina... I think. It's gonna be DROPPING in record stores on June 7th and from what I heard they're doing it hip hop style with guest spots galore... expect to hear Julian Casablancas from The Strokers, Trent Reznor from a small band named NIN, Mark Lanegan from the Screaming Trees and um.... Queens Of The Stone Age and Billy Gibbons from ZZ top in some form on the new record. I'm hoping for a killer bee type song with all of em that kinda sounds like "Triumph" by Wu tang Clan. That song was killer and I don't even like hip hop. Fuck I miss Ol' Dirty. Anyways, hit QOTSA dudes on the web at www.myspace.com/queensofthestoneage and www.qotsa.com.
My friend Sam asked me if I'd heard this Rod Stewart covers record he recorded in 1998. Of course I hadn't... but to my pleasant surprise when I did Rod turns out some pretty killer covers of "Cigarettes and Alcohol" by Oasis and "Rocks" by Primal Scream. Rod takes those songs and makes em his own. Rod rules. He also covers The Faces song "Oh-La-La" which he never got to sing cuz his disco career was taking off and homeboy didn't come into the studio. Totally worth the $2 bucks youre gonna pay for this when you find it in the used bin. DO IT!
Also, as of today you can stream two songs from the new Black Rebel Motorcycle Club record "Baby 81", which I've heard and it's going to be one of the best records of 2007. It fuckin' smokes... hit up their website @ http://www.blackrebelmotorcycleclub.com/ to stream "Weapon of Choice" and "666 Conducer".
Speaking of Oasis.. Lily Allen can't party with Liam... click here.
Start the countdown cuz the Cassettes are heading out on a good old fashion American tour in two days! They'll even be busking on the street in some cities and selling Cassettes tea at their merch booth! When was the last time you heard of a band doing that? I can't wait til they hit LA... If you haven't checked them out yet, download the two tracks below. You can get their new cd 'Neath The Pale Moon from your local record store or from one of the online services below. You might wanna also pick up the reissue (with bonus tracks) of their second record O'er The Mountain which features members of Dead Meadow as the backing band. The singer of The Cassettes, Shelby, produced their first two records. But the DM dudes aren't in the band anymore, it's a full new and improved lineup now... for more on The Cassettes visit their myspace page @ http://myspace.com/thecassettes, their website @ http://www.thecassettes.com/ and Wikipedia page @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cassettes. 17 Feb 2007 Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar - Charlottesville, Virginia 22 Feb 2007 Brillobox - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 23 Feb 2007 Art Hospital - Bloomington, Illinois 24 Feb 2007 The Brick - Kansas City, Missouri *note: new location!* 25 Feb 2007 Hi Dive - Denver, Colorado 27 Feb 2007 Rock Coffee - Spokane, Washington 28 Feb 2007 Towne Lounge - Portland, Oregon 01 Mar 2007 Funhouse - Seattle, Washington 02 Mar 2007 Diablos - Eugene, Oregon 03 Mar 2007 Blue Lamp - Sacramento, California 04 Mar 2007 ... busking/recording...
