The Boss Seeks Approval

In honor of Bruce Springsteen's new album the Springsteen camp is asking bands to show how they have been influenced by the The Boss. I think this is weird. You don't see Paul McCartney going around and asking every rock band today to pay homage to him and the other Beatles. Seriously Bruce, you are the last person on earth who should have low self-esteem. Leave that to college Djays who think no one is listening to their 3am radio shows.

Anyways, here are the Avett Brothers doing "Glory Days." Go here to see more bands upping Bruce's self-image.

200 Million Thousand Billion Hundred Ones

The Black Lips have done it again. Their new album, which hits stores on Tuesday the 24th is a great work running on the heals of their 2007 release "Good Bad Not Evil." The latest effort, "200 Million Thousand," utilizes the sounds of 60's surf punk and Cole Alexander's drooling vocals to create another fine, sweat-lathered album. I usually can't stand it when bands abuse lo-fi, (Clap your hands say yeah's second album), but "200 Million Thousand" pulls it off in stunning fashion.

Get to the shelves of your local Walmart or Kmart or Target or Walbaum's or Super Stop this Tuesday and pay full price.

For now:

Starting Over - Black Lips

The Defeat of the Evil Robots

We are back up and running after a long and arduous hiatus. After months of construction, technical difficulties, and dealing with cyborgs, WRMC is officially back in the hands of real live humans for your listening pleasure almost 24 hours a day (we still have a few 3am-6am spots open if anyone is interested...)

Don Diablo v Missy Elliot

Don Diablo has been dropping a retarded amount of hot mixes and new tracks over the past couple months. Like 4 a week. Hes like the Lil Wayne of new remixes. Somewhat absurd.

Anyways, a remix on the 'Work It' acapella just dropped in my inbox, and is definitely worth a download. He takes nothing from the original song (besides the lyrics) but makes a dope and dancable mix. Its not quite a clubworthy as some of his other recent mixes, he takes it in a less bass-driven direction. Check it
