This Toronto-based trio needs to produce more music. I completely love their electronic/shoegazer/dark wave sound.

Cello Song

Cello Song

by Nick Drake

Gabrielle Drake has just released a book about her posthumously famous brother, Nick. While some critics and fans tend to focus on the depressive and "doomed" aspects of Nick Drake's music & lyrics, I've always from him sweetly, if a little sadly, romantic. http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/nov/15/i-want-to-complicate-the-nick-drake-story

Bela Lugosi's Dead

Bela Lugosi's Dead

by Bauhaus

Sure, this song always gets trotted out this time of year. There's a good reason for that. My introduction to Bauhaus was via Tony Scott's 1983 vampire film "The Hunger". Bauhaus, David Bowie, and a chain-smoking Catherine Deneuve wearing fishnets + black leather. Oh, my Goth!

Ten Years Gone

Ten Years Gone

by Led Zeppelin

SPIN Magazine just took a stab at ranking all 87 Led Zeppelin songs, from worst to best. Of course, I don't agree with all these rankings, but I found I agreed with most. I most assuredly agreed with their ranking of "Ten Years Gone" in the #7 spot. After "Kashmir", it's the best song on "Physical Graffiti". http://www.spin.com/articles/led-zeppelin-every-song-ranked/?utm_source=spinfacebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=spinfacebook

The Exploding Boy

@RaymondLuk The anniversary of "Disintegration" reminds me of my very first Cure record, which was the album of singles "Standing on a Beach". Not a bad way to be introduced, in my mind. I always preferred the side of the album that was dubbed "B-Sides". This song was one of those.
