To Read, To Hear, To Watch.. I Command It

Tired of what the radio has to offer lately? Sick of the same old CD's? Fear not, O dedicated reader, I have the cure for what ails you!! Here's a bite sized segment of some off the beaten track tunes and videos guaranteed to make you wish you were born with more ears!

Yes, gentle readers, I'm talkin' about..... Music:

Check out Franz Ferdinand. 90% of the songs on both of their full length CD's are catchy, poppy, fun and chock full of energy. You may have heard this bad boy, or maybe this one.. Goofy videos, but damn, these guys get under your skin!


Goldfrapp. Ooh La La is right! This is the finest "electroclash" band I've encountered to date. The lead singers voice melts down some of the cold brittle feel of electroclash. I'm sure it's only a matter of days before someone comes up with a new musical category for these guys..

Interested in hearing more electroclash, or just want to read about some of the hippest new artists? Check for new stuff on Jere's Blog here!

So you want strange and maybe not terribly well known in the US? Try these on for size... Nephew.. Or The Rasmus, HIM and Apocolyptica (GO FINLAND!).. Tired of Evanescence, try Nightwish.. Holly "hubbbbba" Valence.. Kate Ryan.. Alizee..

So you're sick of the new stuff because it's got no soul, well, friend, look no further!! Collected here are some of the best of the best from the past. Don't be shy, click away....
