Duck Sauce’s “Big Bad Wolf”

You’ll remember Duck Sauce from last year’s ridiculously huge hit “Barbara Streisand”. Well, the American/Canadian DJ duo of Armand Van Helden and A-Trak are back with this absurd NSFW video for their new track “Big Bad Wolf”. Is it as catchy as “Barbara Streisand”? I’m not sure. Do I like it? I do. It’s definitely a less funky track, more house, darker. I will have to listen on good speakers and not the shitty headphones I have on right now.

Jury’s out.

Chairlift’s “Amanaemonesia”

Today Charles invited me to a private alpha of a new site called This Is My Jam. The idea is that you post a song that you’re jamming to but you’re only allowed one song at a time. So as soon as you switch it, your old song goes away. Pretty interesting, I think. Anyway, just clicking around today I stumbled across this gem of a song.

I don’t know anything about the group except that they’re British, I think. But I know I love this song and the video. It’s so perfectly weird in a heartwarming, accessible way. I love the dance, I love the karaoke lyrics at the bottom, I love the lo-fi aesthetic. It’s just really great.

The Sword’s “Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians”

I don’t know what a Hyperzephyrian is, but that doesn’t stop this track by The Sword off 2008’s Gods of the Earth from kicking total ass. Of course, by now, everyone knows that The Sword slays. You should know that. I know it. We all god damned know it. The Sword is awesome.

I post this video now in light of my post about Township the other day. It was directed by my friends Mike Colao and Josh Litwhiler and shot here in scenic Williamsburg, Brooklyn in a warehouse by the East River. Pastoral! You’ll see me as one of the chain-pulling dudes and as the front Ark Bearer wearing a gas mask that was much too small for my face. The pressure gave me a brutal headache, but I was all, “Fuck it, man. Let’s do this shit.” Even better, I can now say I’ve been on Headbanger’s Ball. Check that one off the ol’ bucket list.

Enjoy this shit or it will enjoy you.
