Electric Six – Fire

Electric Six - Fire

Amazon.com
Electric Six is the most exciting band to come tumbling out of Detroit since Kiss. Sporting grimy leisure suits and hilarious stage names (the guitarists are known only as Surge Joebot and the Rock and Roll Indian), the ragtag group comes up with a deliriously catchy disco trash sound on its smart, hyperactive debut. Studio 54 horns mingle anxiously with AC/DC-influenced garage riffs, while frontman Dick Valentine rants maniacally over jerky, suggestive punk-funk songs like “Gay Bar” and “I’m the Bomb.” Plus, rumor suggests that single “Danger! High Voltage” features the White Stripes‘ Jack White on backing vocals and, less plausibly, Bill Clinton on saxophone. How cool is that? Very. –Aidin Vaziri

I’m done with classic albums, at least for now. Today, I present to you:

Bedouin Soundclash

A friend of mine introduced me this album as “the perfect album for a rainy day”. Then, a few minutes later, he said “nevermind what I said before, this album is perfect everyday”. I agree with him, even though I think it sounds better on sunny days. It’ll bring you to a good mood, definitely.
