And now it's time for our long distance dedication. Elastic says that No Cool Story has been a terrific blogger friend for only a few short months but she feels like they've known each other, for like, forever, and stuff. Elastic has endured life as a musical orphan for many years as her acquaintances curl up their lips and snidely ask, "Just what is that music that you're listening to now?" Now, finally she knows somebody that appreciates and shares her eclectic if not irreverent musical tastes. No Cool Story, this song is dedicated to you.
KWAN hails from Finland and let me just say that there is nothing sweeter than Finnish fusion rock. This is the Infidel Jam Of The Week since I suffer from a woefully short attention span, and..........I like Twinkies on a moonlit night but sometimes I wear my plaid skirt with go-go boots just to mix it up.......wait, what were we talking about again? Oh yeah, I LOVE this band, KWAN, because they incorporate a little of everything into their music to create an atmospheric sound like no other I've heard stateside. Give it a least a minute to hear the main chorus and to snicker at the lead singers nose piercing. Apparently, looking like a raging bull is all the rage in Finland this year.
NCS, are you enjoying a moment of unbridled jubilation that UPOP is back on the air like I am? How ahead of the musical curve are we? Miss Biotech Goddess and I both love Royksopp too, and now they're using them for Geico commercials. My girls and I adore Goldfrapp and Target tapped their song, "Fly Me Away," for their ad. We knew about these acts eons ago, and I feel really smug about it too.
