Jams We Love
For our column Jams We Love, we're turning you onto the songs that keep us going every day. We'll showcase a new playlist every week so you can start things off right. Today, because holiday shopping season is now in full swing, we put together a bunch of songs related to spending sprees.
For our column Jams We Love, we're turning you onto the songs that keep us going every day. We'll showcase a new playlist every week so you can start things off right.
1. Black Sabbath, "War Pigs"
The heavy metal legends are reuniting for a world tour in 2012 and recording their first new album (to be produced by the legend named Rick Rubin) in 33 years. They dropped this news-bomb on 11/11/11–I had a feeling that was going to be an awesome day! Crank up their classic "War Pigs" and celebrate.
1. M83, "Intro", ft. Zola Jesus
Their Thursday show's been sold out for months and months and months. Tickets are currently on Craigslist for $100 or more. Why?! you might be asking. Well, the French electronic pop act helmed by Anthony Gonzalez puts such immense reverb on everything until it sounds so epic you can't help but sucked into the gorgeous vortex it creates.
1. The Cramps, "Zombie Dance"
This rockabilly toe tapper is a low-down, dirty party jam that could melt facepaint. R.I.P. Lux Interior.
We're dedicating this week's Jams We Love to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, which hits Golden Gate Park this weekend. These songs highlight just a few of the acts we're most looking forward to catching this year–there are way too many to throw in a single playlist!
1. Kurt Vile & The Violators, "The Hunchback"
This is easily one of the best epic jams Kurt Vile and his band does (and boy, do they excel at those). Like Crazy Horse in their heyday, once this group gets into the groove, it has a hard time quitting. Once you hear this turned way up, you won't want them to either.
