Free Music Fridays...#4

1. "Be Cool" Home School
A snappy little pop song with petals of rosy guitar jangles-- the perfect song for our first official day of summer

2. "Born to Die" King Khan & the Shrines 
Described by Khan himself as "an apocalyptic ode to the heinous war machine that to this day ruins our lives." In other words, a way-cool, joyous soudning psych antem complete with brass and string sections, richly obssessed with a wah-wah pedal.

3. "Hello" The Mantles
A brawny piece of garage rock with a refrain that suddenly tingles between the ears.

4. "Honeypot" Thom Yorke
Once a discarded remix of Radiohead's All I Need, Honeypot is a dark trance of cycling beats, switches and ticks under Yorke's whimpering falsettos.


  1. My favorite of this batch is "Born to Die" by King Khan & the Shrines, which for some reason reminds me of The Rolling Stones, in a good way.

  2. Totally agree with that, and yes, certainly in a good way.
