The Beat Frequency - March 12, 2010

Cake's "Love You Madly" is in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, one of the funniest films I've ever seen. I watched it again with my roommate before spring break happened.

Washington's "How To Tame Lions" is easily my favorite new track off of the SXSW torrents. You should listen to it. To get this, and a ton more songs from this year's SXSW festival, check out the following site here.

Band of Horses' "I Go To The Barn Because I Like The" gets the award for most incomplete song title and it was also on the season finale of Psych this past week. Broken Bell's "The High Road" is a new one from the collaboration between Danger Mouse and James Mercer from The Shins. We then played "Rules Don't Stop" by We Are Scientists, a new track from them, which is pretty catchy.

We also had a lot of fun with the record player playing "We've Got The Beat" by The Go-Go's for absolutely no other reason than playing with the record player.

PS22 doing "Lisztomania" was the best thing ever. Click here for the video. Be prepared to think it is the most adorable thing ever. I want the director's job. Continuing with our Phoenix theme we played "If I Ever Feel Better" which has some fantastic lyrics in it. Next we had Yael Naim (you might remember her from "New Soul" which was in a lot of Mac commercials) doing a cover of Britney Spears' "Toxic", which I guiltily love (both versions actually).

More music in there followed by the new song from OK Go, which has a sweet, sweet music video with a Rube Goldberg machine that took the team involved 4 months to make. It was worth it. Check out the video here. It's even cool to watch silently.

Also, I'd been on a binge of The Smiths this week, which was most of the reason for playing the She & Him cover of "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want" (featured in (500) Days of Summer) and "How Soon Is Now?" earlier.
