After resisting reunion offers for 20 years, the New Radicals reformed to play their hit You Get What You Give at the inauguration. It's a personal song for both the Biden and Harris families. Still a great tune:

Jordan Merrick: Low Country. Merrick is from Brisbane Australia. I found him quite by accident just trying out random youtube videos. He doesn't have much notoriety but he pens an interesting tune.

After 28 years, the electronic music duo known as Daft Punk call it quits using an interesting clip from an earlier short film they did to announce the split.

Gotta love these guys even if you didn’t love their music, because they committed fully to their musical personas. I know there’s pictures of their real faces but most of us only know them by their chromed armor sci-fi tinged visages.

I didn’t love everything they did but I love anything 80s inspired, and their Moroder-esque vibe was wholly 80s. Anyway I feel someone else on these boards will have a whole lot more to say about them so I’ll just hang up and listen.

I don't even know where to begin!

You know that album you bought at 13 years old that changed your life? Daft Punk's Homework was probably that for me. For a kid in the suburbs where rock ruled, it was a gateway to clubs, house, techno, dancing, raves, record collecting and having good taste in music.

Discovery changed my life again, turning timeless samples into new classics. Their pyramid tour in the late 00s was a show I'll never forget.

They closed things up naturally: with big studio project Random Access Memories and a few hit tracks with the Weeknd. Everything they touched turned to gold.

People are cynically saying they'll reunite in the future, but I don't know, they've been pretty happy to not be in the spotlight.

So music definitely calms the youngin' so any time she gets fussy we play random tunes. She doesn't seem to have a real preference yet, which is good because little kiddie music makes my fucking ears bleed.

Taking advantage of the fact that she doesn't yet understand racy lyrics. I definitely can't play tunes like this for her later on...



We have a part-time nanny for her at present--just a nice lady from the neighborhood who watches her 2-3 times a week so we can go to work. The only downside is that she's apparently a big Steely Dan fan and plays that for her all the time. I don't hate them by any means but they've always been kinda meh to me.

Kid friendly music- I think I wore out all my Bob Marley and Johnny Cash discs. They just didn't come out of the CD player... And yes, my older daughter is that old. Younger one had a "go the fuck to sleep" playlist of the same stuff, plus the likes of Jack Johnson. :fffffuck:

Kids Bop was invented by Satan to torture parents.

Ohhhhh don't get me started on Kidz Bop. My God I want to punch a wall when that noise starts.

Anyway, I'm on a bit of a Pink Floyd kick of late. Really surprises me how quickly that band just disappeared from pop culture. Dark Side of the Moon was in the Billboard Top 100 until the early 2000s, and then, poof, it was like they just went away. Growing up in the 90s they were the default "cool" band alongside Led Zeppelin, but something changed post-2000. Even classic rock stations started to stay away from their stuff. Really strange. I still haven't sat down to listen to their final album, The Endless River. You'd think there'd be a resurgence in prog rock and electronic rock since today's power-pop appears to be very 70s and 80s influenced, but...nope. Not really.

On a side note, I have decided I really don't like AJR.

Throwback but fucking insane regardless. Gary Willis on fretless bass.

Listen from about 1:20 onwards for a least 1 minute. I don't think I've ever heard anything like it. Deep groove beast. This would give Jaco a run for his money. And check out the drummer kissing the groove behind him. So light. So sweet.
