Now lets talk about New music. I'm talking about Crystal Castles second album know as Crystal Castles II. The album has been out for a few mounths but it is jsut now growing on me. There is nothing that get's me going like Crystal Castles sporadic beats and avant garde vocals. There music reminds me of playing vidio games a a child. I kow this might sound odd, but Crystal Castles have become one of my favorite bands. Go buy there albums and go see them live. I know I will. :)

The Velvet Underground & Nico album was released in 1967 . It is the soundtrack to 1960's New York and Andy Warhol's Factory. This album shows the dark and gritty streets of New York City. It talks about drug dealers, S&M and heroin. It's in complete contrast to the 1960's Sunny California flower Power. The album has first class Andy Warhol production. And to Warhol's request The Velvet Underground added vocals by German model Nico on three standout cuts off the album. Warhol also designed the album cover, so that the banana can peel off. Today The Velvet Underground and Nico is regarded as one of the best albums of the 1960's. And is considers the first Alternative rock album and the blue print to Punk Rock. Enjoy!
Hole - "Live Through This" is the latest album in what I deem a classic. This album came out in the wake of singer Courtney Love husband Kurt Cobain Suicide. Becaues of this Courney Love's lyrics take on a whole new meaning. Lyrics like "If you live through this with me i swear that i would die for you " and "Someday you will ache like I ache". Just make you feel the pain and raw emotion in Coutneys voice. When I first heard this album it blew me away that a woman can be so powerful. And I still haven't heard a woman as powerful as Courtney Love is on Live Through This.
