Here are all of gorillawit's jams.
by The Julie Ruin
Well, I'm not sure where the goofy, cutesy garage rock/dance jingles of The Julie Ruin's last album ran off to, but Blueberry Island would sound right at home on a late 90's Yo La Tengo album, which means you're goin' in the right direction kids, keep it up :D

Only a few days till #AustinPsychFest and I'm using the next few to post some of the retro throwbacks I've come to love recently, like this one from the second coming of Cream, #Fuzz !!! Hope to see everyone there... if only :(

by Father John Misty
♫ "I wanna take you in the kitchen – Lift up your wedding dress someone was probably murdered in"♫ So macabre I couldn't help but laugh!

by The Decemberists
From what is shaping up to be another great album judging by this and a few other songs I've heard, enjoy a new song from the Canadian indie folk/rock stylings of The #Decemberists!

by Motel Motel
Two of my favorite things; Coffee and... motels i guess. Although the coffee you get in your room at motels usually sucks so I guess that's a great reason to go to a fine coffee establishment and get yourself a gourmet cup of coffee. Regardless, cool song!

by Yo La Tengo
Yo La Tengo, one of my all time faves doing what they do best. cozy little song, suddenly, a flood of uncontrollable noisy feedback guitar with total disregard for the other band members steady melody, then 5 seconds later, back to business!

by The Rosebuds
50% moody rock, 50% awesome Viking sing-along

by The Replacements
Apparently a singer by the name of Lorde did a cover of this song to some fanfare. Sounded alright but I gotta go with the original. "Quittin' school and goin' to work and never goin fishin'. Water all around, never learned how to swim now " :)

Everyone knows the Caesars of Rome had always believed, Hail to the Clear Figurines! I'm not sure what it means and I was too lazy to google it but it sounded pretty cool to me :D

by Yo La Tengo
When I found out my all time fav's YLT were playing this year's #FunFunFun fest in Austin TX, I had to post something by them. It was a hard decision, might post multiples for the next few Jams, but I finally decided to post one of my favorites by them (probably nobody else's favorite, but whatever. I named my dog after this song). Enjoy fellow Jammies!

by Sonic Youth
A friend reminded me of this Sonic Youth cover of this #Carpenters song recently. Needless to say, I had forgotten that it rivals (if not surpasses) the original in my book. This one goes out to you :D
Jammed: 18th May 2014
by Billy Joel
Billy Joel is a total non-guilty pleasure of mine. His lyrics are so chock full of "Go F*** yourselves! Live your own damn life" that I can't help but love the gut. I'll be surprised if this posted jam gets any listens at all (let alone an actual "like"), but the albums "Turnstyles", "The Nylon Curtain" and "The Stranger" are total cassette classics for me and some of my favorite albums ever. Goodbye subscribers who thought I had good taste :D (JK, if you don't think the Piano Man rawkz then I beg of you to try out songs like "Only the Good Die Young" and "My Life" and just about anything off "The Nylon Curtain" if you still no like... oh well, I'm sure we agree on other stuff. I've just been in a New York State of mind lately (inside joke)) They turned our power down Drove us underground But we went right on with the show!!

by TV on the Radio
A #Valentine's Day song from an unlikely source, but I think it's one we can all relate to. No lyrics about a choir of birds singing out his/her name or stars colliding or whatever. TVOTR pull no punches with lines like, "I hunger for you like a cannibal, not gonna let you run, I'm gonna take ya, I'm gonna shake ya, I'm gonna make you..." well, you can guess where it goes from there :D
Jammed: 15th Feb 2014
by Thao & The Get Down Stay Down
Thao doing a cover of a Yo La Tengo song... which is also a cover of the George McCrae song... that was originally written by Harry Wayne Casey of KC and the Sunshine Band. It's like the song version of Inception!
Jammed: 2nd Feb 2014
Wait! There's more…
