Saturday Night Tunes - Pissing Off DreKeem Since 2011

It's so embarrassing when they're obviously looking for me.
It's so embarrassing when they're obviously looking for me.

The first person to tell me that today is Sunday, not Saturday, will be forced to listen to the new Belle and Sebastien.

Welcome to today's edition of Saturday Night Tunes, where I can learn you about the music I've been listening to while making fun of your musical tastes.  Because I'm in Austin and I can, that's why.1

For a change, my music has been oddly tame and uni-genre recently.  David Bazan's Strange Negotiations, which could be considered somewhat hipster douchebag, adds some nice singer-songwriter action to my ears.  Sometimes, it's nice to bring the house down before cranking it up.

Sloan kicks it up a notch.  From Canada, one of the few remaining power pop bands, hit their 20th year together releasing The Double Cross (get it?).  At times, it sounds like a soundtrack from a Will Ferrell movie, but it makes my old, white ass want to get up and dance, too.  Though, you know, it's not like they're playing a Czech waltz or conjunto.

Finally, and getting the most play over the past month is Thievery Corporation's latest release, Culture of Fear.  As somebody who enjoys music from wherever, its international flavor is especially enticing to me.

What about you, BRB?  What are you fine people listening to?
