Random Coolness – 10-07-13 Music Monday

Random Coolness Videro JamesGood morning Count Blog-ulas!  Enjoy a special Random Coolness with links to streaming new music to start your happy week!  Who says Monday has to be depressingly dull?

First Listen : NPR – NPR has new music streaming from Cults, Dismemberment Plan (yeah!), Lucius (great new music), Darkside, and more!  This is the premier site for streaming not-yet-released music.  Especially check out the Dismemberment Plan.  They are crazy weird and especially good for the fan of Mars Volta, Modest Mouse, or Man Man.  Good stuff!

Sleigh Bells -‘Bitter Rivals’ – If you like shred and pop music, then it gets no better than Sleigh Bells.  Dig in to their new album via Rolling Stone.

Cage the Elephant – ‘Melophobia’ – Missed this one and even thought the album drops tomorrow, still a chance for a listen before it comes out in the morning.

What is the Best Pixies Song? – Rolling Stone’s weekend rock question asks, “What is the best Pixie song of all time?”  My favorite is probably either ‘Debaser’ or ‘Caribou’, but it is tough to make a decision.  Any one else have a thought?  You’re probably right no matter what you pick.

Listen to Unreleased Gorillaz Song – Via Sterogum, check out a 90-second orchestral piece from Gorillaz they wrote with the Syrian National Orchestra.  Pretty cool stuff!
