Dusting Off The Vinyl

I love me some iTunes....especially the Party Shuffle.

Unbeknownst to myself, I've been able to quell any uncontrollable urges to drop coin on an iPod, so the iTunes does just fine at work.

The best thing about said setup is rediscovering some forgotten artists that found their ways to the dark crevasses of my computer.

These are 2 artists with whom I entourage you, dear reader, to re-aquaint yourself:
Rooney - Rooney

This California quartet perform their best Weezer impression to perfection in this debut.
Their take on Cali pop rock would make Ric Ocasek and the Cars proud.
The perfect summer music.

That Girl Is Love
If It Were Up To Me
Joan Jett & The BlackHearts - Fit To Be Tied: Greatest Hits
The original badass chick.
The female Chuck Berry.
If you want some bluesy cock rock, look no further.

Bad Reputation

Do You Wanna Touch? Yeah!
I Hate Myself For Loving You
Love Is All Around (cover of Mary Tyler Moore Show theme)
Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (Reduxe)

This second release by one of the 90's most influential bands is anything but sophomoric. A real leap into the stratosphere on top of becoming a mainstream and critical darling.
It takes a special talent to pull off that trifecta.
A West Coast gem.
