Top 10 Songs of the Week (4/4)

view all

Whatever preventative measures you take to avoid hearing loss, get ‘em ready, because we have a boisterous countdown this week. From Thee Oh Sees’ tight songwriting to Jack White’s vicious instrumental, this is a list loaded with frenzied rhythms and six-string warfare. Competitive rhymes from Drake and nostalgic hiss from Ricky Eat Acid are here for good measure, but that’s relatively easy listening.

10. Thee Oh Sees – “Drop”


It’s possible Thee Oh Sees have appeared on this countdown more than any other band, and that’s not just because they release a lot of songs. John Dwyer runs his label, Castle Face, and his various musical projects with businesslike efficiency, but never at the expense of his art (this is 100% DIY, a la Rough Trade and Merge). And he’s wise when it comes to choosing which album cuts to tease. Latest single “Drop” — the title cut from their forthcoming, pre-hiatus-recorded album — is tight, cheerful, and more song-oriented than the neurotic psychedelia of last year’s Floating Coffin. There are “oohs” and “ahhs” and Kinks-esque riffing, and those guitar solos after the verses are the kind of wild moments Thee Oh Sees are known for — sure to spark moshes and put the sweat on the floor. –Jon Hadusek

Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Z jakiej przyczyny nie wstanę oraz Koszule nie odejdę? modne koszule (Kliknij tutaj) Czemu nie usiądę, niech mnie wyrzucają
Popatrzył w górze, gdzie poniżej okapem hełmu domyślał się wpatrzonych w siebie,
zimnych oczu. Łoskot bezpiecznika. Oczywiście zatem. Tańczące cienie na mokrym
asfalcie, wydłużone, niepodobne przedtem do ludzkich. Odpoczynek punkty, wszystek okupiony
wysiłkiem, żeby się nie przypatrzeć się, Tam nie został.

After been without work for 6 months, I started freelancing over this site and now, with a little effort I easily bring in around $150 to $200 per/h! Without any doubt, it’s the easiest and most financially rewarding job I’ve ever had. It changed my life for the better and now I couldn’t be happier. This is what I do
