So after the high I felt after last week's interview with house legend Derrick Carter, I feel the strong need to post something fantabulous. I don't care that that's not a word. I say it is. So there!
So I finally got around to buying a couple new tunes I had meant to grab. And they're the focus of this week's post. They're both fun, funky, and keep with my style of just being a little off kilt when it comes to musical tastes. And that's a good thing. I think it's why George keeps me around. Between you and me, I think it's because he was afraid I'd launch an affirmative action case against him for not having enough of us pale skinned folks on staff. Kidding, of course. I'm translucent.
So enough stupidity. You want music. I know. The first is a track that was making huge waves online just a couple months back. It's the group YACHT, and this track is a cover of the track the Fabulous Stains did called "Waste of Time". You can now finally pick it up via whichever buying method you'd like. Great track!

Next is the track "Golden Phone" by UK oddball Micachu. I say oddball in the nicest way possible, because holy fucking christ, you need to see this kid's hair! I mean, it's like her - yes, that's a female - hair is Flock of Seagulls gone terribly wrong! But dammit, this song is just catchy as all hell, and has that great balance of catchy and poppy as well as underground just enough. So here's "Golden Phone!

And seriously. Check this girl's hair. WTF? I can forgive it.
And from the folks at BIZ 3? I am gonna pass along a little message about a contest. It's the HARD Fest. And you can win tickets! Check out the info on how you can win by clicking here.
As usual? Buy stuff. It'll help the economy. And if you buy a song, an angel gets its wings. Know how I know that? Because I'm a wholesale wing seller. Fact. I <3 CAPITALISM!!!
