Super VGA – Pharmacy

super vga modern medicine

I received this highly contagious track from Super VGA‘s new album “Modern Medicine” and like Rhianna’s umbrel-uh-uh-uh, I can’t seem to get it out of my head. Here’s some info Jeff sent over about the song Pharmacy: I don’t know if it’s always been conscious, but we somehow tend to find a balance between happy, approachable sounds and somewhat desperate ideas. I got this cheery little loop that Ryan had thrown together in my inbox at one confusingly/humorously(?) low moment of my adult life and I sent him back the first two verses and half a chorus an hour later. The initial demo wasn’t refined into a proper song until about a year after that.

SuperVGA is Jeff Waldron (Los Angeles), Ryan Wardell (San Francisco) and Vic Stafford (Atlanta). The three live in separate cities and have been collaborating electronically for years. You can checkout a video on how that 3-way process works here. Modern Medicine is out now digitally (iTunes, Amazon.com, emusic.com, Insound.com), with an official CD release date on October 14th.

Tokyo Police Club – Juno (Ra Ra Riot/RAC Maury Remix)

Tokyo Police Club – Juno Lyrics
I’ve got a place in the arctic circle.
I’ve got a place that i painted white.
I’ve got a home in the salty ocean.
So right, so right.
All of the lions in your bedroom.
All of the tigers we ignore.
Pulling the wool down over your eyes.
Yes sir, yes sir.

You and your soapy eyes called it off so late at night.
But your hands in your heart cuz your head’s always right.
You and your soapy eyes called it off so late at night.
But your hands in your heart cuz your head’s always right.

I’m gonna go back for the science.
I’m gonna stay for the decimals.
No one will ever know the difference.
Same old, Same old.

Fine, you arrive, this swoon needs eyes.
Fine, you arrive, this swoon needs eyes.

You and your soapy eyes called it off so late at night.
But your hands in your heart cause your head’s always right.
You and your soapy eyes called it off so late at night.
But your hands in your heart,
cuz your head’s always right.

You know your type.
You know your type.



Sometime Around Midnight Lyrics: Cross Crutch Debate

Filed under: Indie Music 2008

cross versus crutch

There’s been some debate over at RLS regarding the correct line in the song “Sometime Around Midnight” from The Airborne Toxic Event. Is it cross, crutch, crux, crush, curse…? (See: Sometime Around Midnight Lyrics) And what’s a wonderwall anyways? (The song “Wonderwall” by Oasis is actually a song about “an imaginary friend who’s gonna come and save you from yourself”- Noel Gallagher).

The lyrics in question: “But you know that she’s watching. She’s laughing. She’s turning. She’s holding her tonic like a ________. The room’s suddenly spinning. She walks up and asks how you are. So you can smell her perfume, you can see her lying naked in your arms.”

The Airborne Toxic Event – Sometime Around Midnight

Mikel (lead singer/guitarist) from the band was cool enough to offer RLS the correct word plus a brief explanation for its use: The line is “cross” and I meant it to mean sort of like she’s holding her drink ominously, as if it’s offering her comfort and guidance.

Thanks Mikel. This is another reason why we love indie music. There are still major label hits out there that are being misunderstood daily, with no courtesy in offering their listeners a valid explanation….
(See Fall Out Boy – This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an _______?)

Here’s the first video from Antony and the Johnsons new 5-track EP Another World, set to be released on October 7th. You can pre-order it here.

The appropriately short and sweet description from Rough Trade Records UK is as follows: “a beautifully simple and elegant video.”

Antony and the Johnsons – Another World
from Another World (EP), 2008

Antony and the Johnsons – Another World Lyrics
I need another place. Will there be peace? I need another world. This one’s nearly gone. Still have too many dreams. Never seen the light. I need another world. A place where I can go. I’m gonna miss the sea. I’m gonna miss the snow. I’m gonna miss the bees. I’m gonna miss the trees. I’m gonna miss the sound. I’ll miss the animals. I’m gonna miss you all. I need another place. Will there be peace? I need another world. This one’s nearly gone. I’m gonna miss the birds. Singing all this songs. Been kissing this so long. Another world. Another world. Another world. Another world…

……………………………………………………………………………………………………

The last we heard from Antony was with the collaborative 2008 album from Hercules and Love Affair.  Am I the only one that still can’t get Blind out of their headphones?

Maybe not so Indie…but…it’s Goldfrapp, and it’s Saturday!

Goldfrapp – A&E
from Seventh Tree, 2008

Goldfrapp – A&E Lyrics
It’s a blue, bright blue Saturday.
And the pain has started to slip away.

I’m in a backless dress on a pastel ward, the shining.
Think I want you still.
But it may be pills at work.

Do you really wanna know how I was dancing on the floor?
I was trying to fool you when I’m crawling up the door.
And theres a tune at things you say that you don’t do.
Why don’t you ring?

I was feeling lonely, feeling low.
Feeling like I needed you.
Like I’m waking up surrounded by me.
A&E.

It’s a blue, bright blue Saturday.
And the pain has started to slip away.

I’m in a backless dress on a pastel ward, the shining.
Think I want you still.
But it may be pills at work.

How did I get to accident, emergency?
All I wanted was you to take me out high.
I was feeling lonely, feeling low.
Feeling like I needed you.
Like I hoped you’d call and hoped you’d see me.
A&E.

Télépathique – I’m Not the Man You Think I Am Lyrics
I’m not the man you think I am.
I’m not that kind of guy.
Beneath the sleek exterior,
there’s less than meets the eye.

I’m just what you’ve been looking for.
Your wildest dream come true.
I’m not the man you think I am,
but I’m the man for you.

I’m unimportant business
I’m late for my premier.
I’m doing you a favor
just by being here.
Surely you can buy a drink
for someone so renowned.
I’m not the man you think I am,
but I’m the man you found.

I’m burning with indifference.
I’m sleeping with desire.
I’m selling snow to Eskimos.
I’m preaching to the choir.
My past is catching up to me.
My chits are coming due…

I’m not the man you think I am,
but I’m the man for you…
