  • My Old Kentucky Blog treats us to an old New York favorite: The Talking Heads’ And She Was. She sure was.
  • In last week’s roundup, Jason tipped me off to Now I’m tipping you off to Wendy Rene’s After Laughter Comes Tears. You’ll thank me, I’ll thank Jason.
  • Ground control to major blog.  Best Week Ever presents your next 10 minutes: enjoy Space Oddity. A blog soup hooks up this Bowie favorite.

  • Cocaine Blunts hearts Biggie Smalls and Biggie Smalls hearts his bitch. Listen to the unreleased version Me & My Bitch and get in on the action.
  • If you loved Tom Brokaw’s The Greatest Generation, it probably won’t affect the way you feel about The Lost Generation, a 70’s soul outfit that tempers funk with a "resigned sadness." Thanks Ear Fuzz!
  • If you’ve already gone through the four stages of the Arctic Monkeys, it’s time for phase five: Watching their SNL performance online.
