Friday Music Day: Head Canon

Long ago, there was a song I enjoyed (and yes, this story would be greatly improved if I could remember the identity of the song) where I heard the lyrics to one key segment in a very specific way. M

later, I heard a live version of the song, where the singer enunciated the lyrics much more clearly, and I could hear what he was actually singing. Whereas the lyrics that I THOUGHT he'd been singing had been clever, the actual ones were juvenile and dull. It ruined the song for me completely.

So, tell me about instances where your head Canon outshines the real thing.

Or just drop your 10. It's still a thing!

Parquet Courts “Almost Had to Start a Fight / In and Out of Patience”

I've not really been a huge Parquet Courts fan until this year. Wide Awake changed all that. Every song is just so... Energetic (and danceable, which Newbish appreciates).

Middle Kids – Edge of Town

Welcome to nibbish week!

We'll kick it off with a song that I've been enjoying this year from Australian band Middle Kids. I like this version, because there's a little bit longer of an ending.

The rest of the EP is solid, too - especially "The River", which I was initially going to post here, but this is the single, so there are far more videos available for it.

Friday Music Day: New Music

Having a kid hasn't slashed as much time from my hobbies as I might have expected so far (subject to change, obviously). I still play a fair number of video games, I will watch baseball, and I still listen to quite a bit of music.

The one thing I don't do nearly as much anymore is find NEW music. I almost always did that late at night after Linds went to sleep. Anymore, I'm just as tired as she is, so around the time I'd be perusing blogs and whatnot, I'm falling asleep on the couch, instead.

As a result, I haven't really heard a lot so far this year. The Operators album is pretty sweet, the new Mitski song is good. New M83 is deeply cheesy and odd....yeah.

Any recs?

Also, drop your ten.
