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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
The Black Keys just put a 4 song live EP out for free on the internet that was recorded during their fall 2006 tour and it's pretty fuckin' awesome. But let's be honest... if it's free, it's me. Here's the down-low on these four smokin' tunes...

You might wanna check out this new video from everyone's favorite divorced sibling rock duo... The White Stripes. The clip was co-directed by Jack White and the Malloy Brothers, I didn't know who the bros were so I googled em and it said they've directed (the amazingly bad) Metallica's - St. Anger music video, the goofy Kid Rock - "Cold and Empty" music video, The Shins - New Slang music video and are currently working on a movie titled "8 Track" which was written by Zach Braff (who just so happens to be the reason The Shins have some cash in their pockets now).
The video is for their new single "Icky Thump" which is way better than ANY of that crap on that last turd record "Get Behind Me Satan". The only negative things I have to say about this new jam is the keyboard solo sounds like a shitty bagpipe (NO GOOD) and John Gillis is kinda rapping ala The Beastie Boys (NO GOOD AGAIN). But both of those things are growing on me a little with each listen. At least homeboy finally got wise and put down that goddamn marimba, picked up his axe and wrote some heavy riffs again. Good call Jack, I hated your shitty marimba and that dumb doorbell song man. Sorry, I'm just being honest. Don't do that to us again, k?
Anyhoo, the video is cool as shit. Meg looks killer with brown hair. Oh and Jack & Meg finally gave in and got a myspace page. Yo Jack, get crackin' on writing a new Raconteurs record.

If you're looking for a music website that's updates alot and always has killer jams on it, bookmark http://www.aquariumdrunkard.com/. I hadn't been over there for a while so I played some catch up on that site today and really was blown away by this
Terry Callier album cover. It was the reason I listened to the song, which is killer too in case you were wondering. If you know of cool sites I should be linking, have song/video recommendations or naked photos of yourself email them to me. Only females need apply to that last one, male with nude photos can send yours to email@example.com.
Yeah yeah, I know... way too much Queen of the Stone Age shit on here lately. Someone even nailed me on it here in the comments of the last QOTSA post... But, in my defense... I'm a really lazy person plus i've been really busy lately doing really cool shit (can you say BIG SUR?) and let's face it chumps... Bulby fucking rules man. "Shut up, grow up & turn it up!" I haven't even heard the album so I can't tell you much about it, but what I can tell you is I'm ready to party with this dude Bulby. The guy wins. "Count me in!"
Nope it's not a George Harrison cover, it's the first new song from The Jesus & Mary Chain in nine years and it's really fuckin good. Get in the studio and record this shit dudes! They played this jam when I saw them at The Glasshouse as well as at Coachella (the mp3 below is from The Glasshouse show). And then they recently played it again for their third appearance on the David Letterman show last Monday (scope the video below) with William sporting a "Scotland" soccer jersey (probably because David Letterman introduced them as an English band first time). Either way, I'm excited that these guys are back and can't wait for their record that I heard they're gonna start recording next year... should be tits!
Here's a little song called "Sick, Sick, Sick" that just so happens to be the first single from the new Queens of the Stone Age record that they're calling "Era Vulgaris". I dunno what "Era Vulgaris" means, but it makes me think of Vagina... which is always a plus. Yes, I am 12. The video features their new bass shredder "Mikey Shoes" from Wires On Fire as well as enough gross shit to make you not wanna eat for the rest of the day. After I saw it the video this morning all I've been able to get down is a couple gallons of French-press coffee and a POM Blackberry Tea. The POM tea is not only a killer drink but you get to keep the glass, which rules for loser bachelors like me. Anyways, back to Queens... what do you guys think of this new song and video? Post your comments, let's hear your reviews!
On a totally unrelated note, this weekend I'm road tripping it up to Big Sur with my friend Sam to see the singer of The Black Crowes, Chris Robinson, perform at The Fernwood with Entrance (click here for the flier), hang out in the woods, go inner tubing and discover our inner-hippies. Anyone else going and getting as weird as we are this weekend? Or do you know of sights we need to make sure and check out while we're up there? Expect to see rad photos of hippies letting their freak flags fly on my Flickr account early next week! You can't stop this party. It can't be done!
