Last week was a bit of a bummer; one good song and a bunch of stinkers. Well, this week more than made up for it. Muse continues to kick ass. Steve Martin and Edie Brickell team up to prove that bluegrass isn’t just hillbillies being told how to dance. Rob Scallion breaks away from the guitar. They Might Be Giants are back. Therapy? makes their entire album available to stream for free.
Muse – Dead Inside
A bit more on the techno side of Muse’s eclectic range. If you’re at work, be aware that this lyric video features a naked girl dancing in a kaleidoscope effect. Lots of boobies.
Steve Martin Featuring Edie Brickell – Pretty Little One
If you haven’t noticed his musical efforts since the late 1970’s, you might expect Steve Martin to be doing reprises of “King Tut”, but in fact, he’s been doing an awful lot of bluegrass music – he’s incredible on the banjo. And if you haven’t noticed her musical career since the mid 1980’s, you might think Edie Brickell stopped after singing about not getting too deep in “What I Am.” In fact, she’s… well, honestly, I haven’t noticed her career since then — that is, until a few months back when I found out she was collaborating with Martin.
Here they perform a duet of sorts, telling a great story about a moronic brute who thinks he can take advantage of a girl who knows how to protect herself.
Rob Scallion – Theremin
Scallion normally plays guitar, but he set a goal that with 500 Patreon patrons, he would get and play a theremin song. Here it is:
They Might Be Giants – Underwater Woman
A bit experimental, even for TMBG.
Therapy? – Disquiet FULL ALBUM
We featured their song “Still Hurts” two weeks ago. Now you can check out the whole album. If you like disturbing Irish metal, then this is the album for you.
