Bob Mould - The Descent - filmed in Portland


 In honor of Bob Mould's show at the Wonder Ballroom tomorrow night, here's a cut from the new album Silver Age, with a video filmed in Portland. Enjoy!

Ben Folds Five & Fraggle Rock


 I get this crazy happy feeling inside when I'm listening to The Underground and I hear the title music from Ben Folds Five, from 1999.

So imagine my joy if you will when I learned that Ben Folds Five is putting out a new album. And so I watched the video, and there was nothing there but pure joy. Well, and Fraggle Rock. 

I'm too old to have experienced Fraggle Rock as a kid. Indeed, this is my first experience. But they can headbang as well as anyone else I've seen. This exurberant, bouncy tune!

"If you see Ben Folds Five, and you see Fraggles dancing around, and your day isn't exponentially happier, you're dead inside." - Chris Hardwick
