Colour Me Impressed

12 minutes – July 19th 2009

Bad habits are hard to break. In our case, we keep posting our Sunday night feature on Monday mornings. Luckily the beginning of the work week haze is perfectly suited for a nice time sink. Grab a cup of coffee, avoid your boss (you have a “work related” tab open in your browser -right?) and sit down with this week’s video picks.

Ponytail – Celebrate the Body Electric (It Came From an Angel)

We recently recieved a letter* fromĀ a reader asking if we could find a video that was guaranteed to give them a headache if not make them vomit all over themselves – I think we delivered. Plus Bikesnob NYC recently commented that this band is the Primal Jersey of the music world – while not exactly a compliment, I think it is important to maintain cultural relevance and link to BSNYC whenever possible.

*By letter, we mean that I could not come up with a more original way to introduce this video.

Grizzly Bear – Ready, Able (Live on Letterman)

Cass McCombs – You Saved My Life

This track sounds slowed down in a way that perfectly reflects a hot summer afternoon as Cass weaves his way through a crowded festival. This is what’s it like to “be somewhere” without really feeling any connection to your surroundings, kids.

Mr. T Experience – Ba Ba Ba Ba

Lately I’ve been revisiting my 15 year-old self’s love of bay area pop-punk. The Mr. T Experience always struck me as a cut above the rest. Their love-lorn lyrics were always a little more clever than the majority of their snotty counterparts. The band’s frontman later on went to prove me right, by writing the clever and quirky “coming of age” novel, King Dork. This track comes from my favorite MTX album, Love Is Dead.
