So, I’m still ‘touring the facilities’ in my long, white jacket and I think it’s gonna take the rest of the week. THEREFORE, my fine feathered fellow KROQ joqs are tossing you a bone and playing videos at you here on the series of tubes in my absence.
My friend KAT is up today – her first choice is by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Friends [/lastfm]and it’s called “Friend Crush”. I’m crossing everything that I can that this is some sort of clandestine message to me. Like, maybe she’s had a labotomy recently and suddenly I don’t look so bad.
Anyway, about it she says: “I love the retro sound of this and the weird keyboard is very dreamlike.”
Her second choice FER YA is by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Royal Bangs[/lastfm] and it’s called “My Car Is Haunted”. It’s so bleeding new there isn’t even a video yet, so pretend there is no such thing as ‘talking, moving pictures’ and just listen instead.
“Love this band Royal Bangs,” says she. They hail “from Knoxville Tennesse. Patrick Carney discovered them on MYSPACE when [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Black Keys[/lastfm] were on hiatus.”
