If ’90s era Beck time travelled to the present day and made a new song, this Parquet Courts song would definitely be that song.

This version of “Captive Of The Sun” is a remix of the original, which was on 2016’s Human Performance. The original didn’t feature Bun B. I wonder what kind of bet he lost to have to contribute to this song but it adds a nice dimension, like chipotle does to mayo.

Anyways, at first, I was like ugh, but after a few listens, I have decided I liked it.

Check it out.

Song of the Day: Hercules & Love Affair Featuring Faris Badwan – Through Your Atmosphere

It’s only fitting that on the day of the release of the new Horrors album, we post a song featuring their lead singer. “Through Your Atmosphere” is one of two collaborations with Hercules & Love Affair on their new album Omnion. It’s a solid dark dance tune and just adds to an already impressive summer resume for Faris Badwan.

It’s been a long time since I loooooooooved a Hercules & Love Affair song (probably not since “Blind”) but this one I love. It’s got this moody yet beaty vibe to it. Probably a track that goths dance to. Check it out.

While all the aging rock critics are busy criticizing the new indie pop bands for overusing the millenium howl, hip hop has been busy inventing new ways to have catchy choruses that well, simple but effective. Not sure many songwriters would come up with the chorus line from Asap Ferg’s track Nasty. Here it is:

Ay, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Ay, ya, ya, ya, ya, yeah
Ay, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Who dat, who dat, who dat, who dat, who dat, who
Who dat, who dat, who dat, tryna get up in my crew

You would think it’s stupid, but you can’t get it out of your head after listening to the track. Anyways, I can’t get over this track, its fun and sounds good. Migos is having a good year.

Song Of The Day: Doom Side Of The Moon – Time

Doom Side Of The Moon is the brainchild of Kyle Shutt, guitarist for The Sword and as you might have figured out from the name, it’s a stoner/doom metal tribute to Dark Side Of The Moon, the Pink Floyd album that launched a thousand laser light shows.

The project features Shutt’s bandmates from The Sword, as well as vocalist Alex Marrero (Brownout / Brown Sabbath), saxophonist Jason Frey (Black Joe Lewis / Hard Proof), and keyboardist Joe Cornetti (Croy & The Boys).

According to Shutt, “The idea came to me after getting baked and wanting to hear a heavy version of “Time” and yeah, that does pretty much sound like the kind of idea one might come up with while under the influence. I’m not sure that the world really needed to hear what Dark Side would have sounded like if it was recorded by Black Sabbath, but their version of “Time” is suitably heavy and epic sounding and I’d imagine all involved probably had a lot of fun making this.

Doom Side Of The Moon is out December 8 via Music Theories Recordings/Mascot Label Group.
