This is truly I Think You’ll Like This Song moment. Maybe you’ve heard these before, maybe you haven’t, have a listen and prepare to have your socks rocked off. Two tracks from the Mystery Jet’s second album 21, one that is so eighties it is one of the best things ever and another featuring the delectable Laura Marling. Either way you’re laughing.
Now this could split some people down the middle. Yes, for the next You Should Own This we have gone with a track from the band OPM, those skater guys that did Heaven Is A Halfpipe. OPM were one of many Nu Metal/Punk bands that emerged in the early 2000s and then faded just as quickly. OPM’s Menace to Sobriety was a so-so album but one track from it has always stuck with us and is regularly in rotation in our speakers and that is Reality Check. An unassuming laid back look at life in California. We like it a lot, and if you do that’s great, and if you don’t, lets still be friends…k?
To be fair, we’ve already featured Atmosphere in You Should Own This. But considering the tad worse for wear state we’re in right now, we realise how much Sunshine should be in everyone’s lives. Perfect laid back beat just in time for the summer after a monster of a night before. Enjoy.
Chances even if you’re not familiar with the name The EELs, you’re going to be at least familiar with a few of their songs. They’ve been featured on TV and film for the last ten years or so. You might recognise Mr. E’s Beautiful Blues from Road Trip, Fresh Feeling from Scrubs and Chuck, Flyswatter from Desperate Housewives, My Beloved Monster from Shrek, Your Lucky Day In Hell from Scream 2 and the list could go on. One of those great 1990s alternative indie rock bands like Cake and Barenaked Ladies, The EELs are still going strong and to our utter delight playing Sunday night at Glastonbury.
This song was everywhere when it came out, rightly so, it’s a great song. Bran Van 3000 from Montreal are still going strong with new album The Garden released in 2010. But here’s the classic Drinking In LA, sit back and enjoy this one preferably with a drink in your hand.
Atmosphere is one of our favourite hip hop artists. This Minneapolis duo, consisting of rapper Slug and DJ Ant, is one of the best examples of real hip hop we’ve come across in both commercial and underground circles. Bubbling under the surface since the 1990s, those that know about Atmosphere know that this is some of the realest hip hop there is. If you don’t know about Atmosphere, you might recognise You that got some widespread attention back in ‘08. It was hard to pick just one song from Atmosphere, over all the others, that we think you should check out. Truth be told we think you should go and check out more from these guys after you listen to this one. But the one we would have to take on a desert island with us, gun to our head, is Yesterday from When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold. Enjoy.
We could pick a few songs from the Donnie Darko soundtrack to feature in You Should Own This, and you know what, we probably will in the future. Today we bring you a classic and one that everyone should have in their collection. This is what the 1980s did best.
Fake Empire is our favourite song from The National. Don’t get us wrong, we love a lot of The National, but this song remains a little special for us for a variety of reasons. We love lead singer’s Matt Berninger baritone delivery of the thoughtful and introspective lyrics. We love the slow build up that culminates in a hectic coming together of guitars, horns, strings and everything else in between for a euphoric endpiece. We love this song. We think you should too. Like our post on The Shins’ Sleeping Lessons, we’re giving you Fake Empire in its original glory, a live version AND an amazing remix by producer/emcee duo Ryan Lewis and Macklemore, so enjoy.
Brother/sister duo Angus & Julia Stone are HUGE in their native Australia. They came top of Australia’s foremost yearly all over the world best of in music countdown, Triple J’s Hot 100 with Big Jet Plane. we love that song but we think Mango Tree is our favourite of theirs. It’s so simple, so beautiful, so lovely and just so so good.
