Music Monday 30

Changing pace (and continents) a bit, this week I'm sharing a catchy song from Arctic Monkey's second album. With clever lyrics and a great British indie rock sound, it's easy to get into their music.

Continuing from last week's genre of nerdcore music, albeit with a different theme, comes a song about hacking and the complete futility of computer security. This particular track was featured on the DEF CON XX compilation album!

The year is 2006, you're fifteen years old, and you've just installed your first BitTorrent client. While perusing The Pirate Bay to download your first 320kbps full-album rip, a thought crosses your mind: "what if I never had to pay to see a movie?" That's when you discovered aXXo, and life was never the same again. This song, released on FSR's only full-length album, accurately captures the ethos of a young internet pirate.

Sometimes you just want to dress in all black and slam in the pit, fantastic. (Did you know a piano could rock?)

This band makes cool psychedelic music with weird key and time signatures, unconventional rock instruments, two(!) drummers, and has released more albums than you have toes (I hope).

"So we jumped up on the table and shouted ANARCHY!!" This is one of the quintessential punk rock songs with covers by MxPx, Streetlight Manifesto, Diesel Boy, Philly Boy Roy, Jay Green (acoustic) and others I'm sure.

Yet another amazing KEXP live studio recording - this time by Spoon! I think it's great how this band has evolved their style over time while still retaining their signature sound.

My freshman year of college, Citizen Cope played a free (for students) show on the field outside my dorm. I had no idea who he was but I went anyway and had a good time! I know it's not the typical rock music I tend to post, but his songs tell a soulful story and are catchy too.
