I just got done listening to Wild Orchid Children's debut album. It is absolutely insane. In fact, it may be this weekend's "get pumped" record along with the new My Disco. In light of what landed in my inbox this week, let's get amped up and ready for Halloween weekend with five adrenaline pumping records the likes of twoshows I witnessed this week
Fear Before the March of Flames'Art Damage - An absolutely insane record that never lets up until the interlude before the album's closer. The record pumps energy from every drum line and and guitar lick. It's all backed by Dave Marion's abrasive vocal delivery and is 30 minutes of abusive hardcore for that two o' clock feeling.
Girl Talk's Feed the Animals - Nothing like listening to a chopped and screwed version of Clear Channel meets your parent's record collection to get the night going right. As much as the elitist in me wants to shun, how can you turn your nose up at all the fun? Seriously, there's not a track on this album you don't want to attempt trying the "stanky leg" while "walking it out" at the same time.
Wu-Tang Clan's Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) - Easily one of my favorite hip-hop albums, the opening "Bring Da Ruckus" is the perfect lo-fi throwback with enough passion to make one inherit "IDFK" mode at any point in time. Even the wimpiest part of my spine is enhanced by any and every track across the point blank delivery of this record.
The Hippos' Heads Are Gonna Roll - A ska album? How cliche...I mean, of course it's upbeat and pumps some horns and synth into the party, but it's my party dammit, and you're invited! This is one of those albums that not only brings me back to the days of less responsibility and mediocre allowance, but full blown speakers of excitement and adventure.
Every Time I Die's Hot Damn! - If you don't know who I am by now, you haven't been paying attention to my work...this one should be self explanatory...
