This is dedicated to the long, passionate make out...
Click here for more wetness.

As spelled out in the post title, today's offering is dedicated to the young lovers of the world. The ones who have an entire life ahead of them. The ones who play it safe while still living dangerously.

Ah, the long passionate make out. Is there anything sweeter than that first breathy kiss? The kiss so powerful that teeth bang together and lips become raw?

The entwinement that most certainly screams out " I want more!"

Yes, these kisses certainly lead toward the burning loins and passionate moans of pleasure.

Hello young lovers...this is for you.
Mazzy Star - So tonight that I might see

Roy Orbison
Click here to Go!Go!Go!

When the name Roy Orbison is mentioned, usually people tend to say "Oh, I love Pretty Woman..."
After listening to this they would have to say things like "Rockabilly Gal is rad!"
Enough said. I present to you: The Rocker!

Dale Hawkins
Click here for early tornado warnings!

Since today is lazy, the following text comes from a well written Wiki page:

Dale Hawkins (born Delmar Allen Hawkins on August 22, 1936 in Goldmine, Louisiana) is a pioneer American Rock singer, songwriter, and rhythm guitarist who is often called the architect of the swamp rock boogie. (Fellow rockabilly pioneer Ronnie Hawkins is his cousin.)
In 1957, Hawkins was playing at
Shreveport, Louisiana clubs, and although his music was influenced by the new rock and roll style of Elvis Presley and the guitar sounds of Scotty Moore, Hawkins blended that with the uniquely heavy blues sound of black Louisiana artists for his recording of his swamp-rock classic Susie Q. Fellow Louisiana guitarist and future Rock and Roll Hall of Famer James Burton provided the signature riff and solo. The song was chosen as one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

Favorite track: Tornado!

I'm not even gonna talk here. Greg Cartwright makes me want to quit music because he's so rad.

Please enjoy "Crystal Gazing, Luck amazing"

And out of respect to Bob Barker...Please remember to spay and neuter your animals.

To receive you must at least be a cool person.

Just a friendly reminder that this blog runs on a "thank you" fuel that can only be powered by you folks who say thanks and appreciate the tunes.

This isn't a quick process this whole sharing thing, you know?

David Bowie is Hunky Dory.
Click here for good times.

Because I'm pretty drunk right now, I'm feeling too lazy to write something witty or factual on my own , I decided to search the internet for a description of this album and all of the ones I found were so lame that I decided that I was just gonna go ahead and write something matter how drunk I am.

Who cares if there's a posibility that I'll re-publish this almost four times in a row because I'm anal about spelling? Especially when I'm drunk?

Am I drunk right now? Yep.

Most of what I read was rehashed music journalist type nonsense:
Ambiguous, Fey, blah, blah

It's actually just a really good album to put your cool on the shelf for a minute and rock out to.

And there you have it folks!

The Black Keys are good!
Click here to stop kissing your cousin.

My wife and I had the immense pleasure of watching Pat Carney and Dan Auerbach tear up a very small stage in Los Angeles once. After they played, like a goon I went up to them and had them sign my copy of Magic Potion. They were cool about it. They were also cool about the fact that in such a great big city, the turnout for their performance was definitely less than stellar. They gave 100%

Anyway, once we got home the first thing I did was grab my guitar, plug in my amp, place the knob on volume ten with the drive meter cranked up all the way and.....

...completely sucked in comparison to the guitar mastery of Mr. Auerbach. There isn't a modern guitarist I know of besides Jack White or a drunken Ben Wolcott that possess such shredding skills.

Download this album. It's called Chulahoma. It's a history lesson in awesomism!

Attention fellow music nerds: It's officially debate time...who is the greatest modern guitarist in your humble opinions?

Dr. Dog recommends using a toothbrush!
Click here for the best nachos ever!

I love Dr. Dog with all of my heart and I sincerely hope you buy their t-shirts and go to their shows. If you haven't picked up their latest record, hit the little red X in the upper right corner of this screen and go get it. Lo-Fi basement songs for the discriminating listener.

I don't have too much else to say except maybe it's a good idea to get the bong from under the bed.

C'mon Mr. DJ, you ready for takeoff in the Airplane Man?
Click here to regulate the juke.

Somewhere on this blog I posted another Mr. Airplane Man record, Moanin'. I like that one more than this one, but I am mostly alone on that decision. According to the fans, this album is the keeper. However, just as Moanin' does, C'mon DJ instantly transports you to a bar somewhere in a real rough and tumble town. A bar where the pinball machine is always occupied by a greased up, leather wearing, dude that keeps his two beers on the glass top. He'll knife you if you get too close.

Here's the video to Jesus on the mainline.

If you are easily offended leave now before this image burns in your head.

After a few minutes you're like " you like pigs or not?"

This is completely NSFW and if for some reason you were just hatched somewhere, that means Not Safe For Work.

Here's something you can't front on...
The Kinks - Sunny Afternoon

Isobell, oh Isobell
Click here to not mind riding your bike in the rain.

What can I say that you haven't heard about Ms. Campbell? We all know she was in the incredible Belle and Sebastian. We all know she had a bad breakup with the lead singer, Stuart Murdoch. We all know she put out a duets album with the gravel voiced Mark Lanegan. We all know she has a really pretty voice and an ability to write perfect pop songs. We all know she's Scottish.

What else?

Oh yeah, I almost forgot...she loves dogs!

Pre-Decemberists country vibes
Click here to get your glasses fixed.

In 1999, before Colin Meloy fronted the Decemberists, he and a few Montana friends were making music under the name Tarkio. The sound is pretty different from his recent material, leaning toward a more alt-country sound. That's not to say that "I guess I was hoping for something more" is a bad record. In fact, it's just the opposite. The hyper-litarism was just beginning to form and you could tell that his time spent going to school in Oregon made quite an impression on the young man from Misoula.
*This isn't quick work...unlike saying thanks.

Beneath a Tennessee sky

"Been in Nashville for approximately one month. People are friendly, but it's not the old country paradise I was looking for. Maybe it's because I don't have cable and didn't realize the "new" country rules these parts, but what the hell happened to good ol' country and western?"

There's a bar down the lane with a poster in the window that says "Top 40 Night!"
That's a little dissappointing isn't it?
I met the old bass player for Johnny Cash. He was inducted into the hall of fame that night. He wore cool wallabees and dark jeans. He was over 70 years old.
I shook his hand and wondered if I'd break it beacuse it was so frail.

Enjoy the stuff that helps me get through the days...

Mr. David Viner's 2nd album.
Click here for something that says "shhh! a lot.

Not long ago the stunning debut by England's David Viner was posted here and I'm sure it was enjoyed by many. Now I present to you "This boy don't care." An incredibly excellent follow up by a shamefully ignored musician.

I'm sure he's not sitting around like a slouch. Rumor has it that he's leaving an international trail of broken hearts behind him. I think he's probably drunk with whisky on his trousers somewhere in the world right now.

I hope he makes a new record soon.

LIVE at Icky Thump Records!
Click here to have a baby.

This particular recording isn't the highest quality, but it's free and being a complainer might get you a fat lip.

My wife and I were the winners of a local radio contest which allowed us to attend this history making show from the White Stripes. I'm not a math guy, but I heard there were only about 250 people there. It was tight, sweaty, smelly, and really wet.

Anyway, this recording was ripped from the stream. Enjoy it.

Now here, take this...

Lullaby Baxter Trio
Click here to dream a little dream...for me.

This is definitely in my top most beautiful albums of all time list. It's long out of print and as far as I know, mostly unknown. Earlier this year Lullaby Baxter released her second album "Garden Cities of Tomorrow" to acclaim and for a minute it was all over the blogosphere for download.
Hopefully most of you actually went out and purchased a copy of that, but if you weren't in the know then, you'll certainly track Ms. Baxter's movements after hearing "Capable Egg."
It's actually funny that she didn't set out to be a performer. The following text comes from

Montreal, 1997. Lullaby Baxter is waiting tables at Jello Bar. Coaxed on stage for an impromptu number, she sings Billie Holiday's signature song "Lover Man (Oh, Where Can You Be?)". This, her first public performance since grade school, brings down the house. She buys a green guitar and learns "Leaving On A Jet Plane". Someone at the laundromat says, "Anyway, try writing songs." So, she and friend Lutwidge Sedgwick write songs. For example, "The Anyway Song". Before long Lullaby Baxter is putting on shows around town. Bewitched studio owner Howard Bilerman runs backstage and offers to record a demo free of charge. Baxter's jazz-singer sister Anna-Lisa meets with Atlantic Records staff producer Yves Beauvais (Madeline Peyroux, Olu Dara) and hands over said demo. Beauvais flies to Montreal, catches Baxter's show, and offers her a recording contract on the spot. Baxter flies to San Francisco and records her debut with Tom Waits's session players Oranj Symphonette. Atlantic Records releases Baxter's debut album, Capable Egg, in 2000. Critics are effervescent. There is a far-flung tour, all manner of interviews, and money for plush new towels. When the clamour winds down, Baxter scratches her head and says, "J'ai vu tomber tant de choses que j'avais crues éternelles" (I have seen the fall of so many things that I had thought eternal). Time to disappear. Time to meet a painter (Jean-Pierre Morin) and bear a son (Lorenzo Wolfgang). Time to mother. Time to take the towels out of the dryer. Time to hum. Time to think about a new album. Time to write a 111-page manifesto entitled Sing Songs for People."

Brendan Benson
Click here to rid yourself of the clap.

I'll admit, Brendan Benson's sugary sweet approach to 1970's California pop wasn't immediately my thing. I had only heard of him because of his connection to a certain Detroit duo. I was underwhelmed when I heard this album so I put it on the back burner for the rest of the year. Then the Raconteurs album came out and I grew an appreciation for the stark contrast between him and Jack White. I decided to dust off this album while I was laying around doing some daydreamin' and it was as if I had "gotten it!"

Benson is not trying to be some Detroit guitar God. No, he's perfectly content keeping it calm and relaxing. His lyrics are really smart and that's always a plus.

Your girl will enjoy this when it's Sunday and she's writing poetry in her room about you. Douche.

Hello, end of August.

It's been a while since I've posted here and since I care about my readers I figure I'll tell you there's been such a delay.

Mostly, I've been waiting out this nasty case of blogger's disease. Peanut over at Peanut's Playground told me to safeguard myself, but like a fool I ignored the advice and fell victim to caring if people left me comments.

It made me sad that so many dowloaders forget to say thanks.
I say "forget" because I'd like to give so many the benefit of the doubt.
That being said, here are a few albums that are completely enjoyable if you are in the right mode.

Oh, robot.

Metallica - Kill em'all

This album was delivered to the world by a band that was the awesomest at what they did in that timeframe. Unfortunately in recent years they aren't as important. Maybe it's because I'm older and I expect much more?

Hey Cliff, how's Heaven?


Bellevue - Demo recordings

Next up are the demo recordings of a band named Bellevue. They have since switched out a few members and whittled themselves away into a three piece. They are now called Des Roar. (check earlier post for link)

It's clear that the songwriter and lead singer, Ben Wolcott, has had a few sleepless nights in bed listening to headphones blaring The Strokes fronted by a two headed Lou Reed/Brian Wilson monster hell bent on destroying the fucking guitar.

A rad band.

Let's keep it fun for the workhorse.

Hello to all who read, bookmark, come upon this blog...

My name is Oh. robot. I like to provide music that you can use while drinking.
I only ask that you leave a comment so I can feel that you enjoy what I do and would like me to do more.

Per day, a bunch of people take, take, take....that's cool because I do it too, but I also leave at least a "thanks man" wherever I get tunes from.

There are good folks and bad folks....pick a side.

To everyone who actually left comments here...I love you.

I remember when this band came out. For a teenager with a silly hair these guys were incredible. The very end of the "you're living all over me" cassette had all this Lou Barlow craziness that bugged me out the first time I heard it. From that day they've become one of my favorite bands. Here's some Ear bleedin' country!

Buy their new album.

I can't tell you anything about this band except:
A. They are really good.
B. They are loud.
C. They are friends with the Kings of Leon.

The White Stripes - REDD blood cells
Click here to kick it old school.

The following comes from here:
In the summer of 2002, Steven came up with the idea to do an art experiment by adding bass tracks to 2 White Stripes songs and sharing them with Redd Kross fans via the internet. The overwhelmingly positive response inspired him to cover the entire "White Blood Cells" record. Word spread quickly over the internet and soon press such as Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork Media, the NY Times, BB Gun to name but a few ran articles about "Redd Blood Cells."
Enjoy the goodness!

Blanche are incredible.
Click here to become a ghost.

I am a really huge fan of this band because they somehow make a brand of music that seems old timey at the same time as sounding very today.

Led by Dan Miller, who at one time was the frontman in a Cow Punk band called Goober and the Peas, which also featured members of the Detroit Cobras and a little guy by the name of Jack White.

Today he, along with his wife Tracee, lead an incredibly tight band that has so much substance, all other bands should quit today.

Please enjoy "If we can't trust the doctors"

Please use your cash to buy product from Blanche.

Cat Power's Myra Lee

Cat Power has come quite a long way from the on stage vomiting and cut short performances.

I'm not sure if this was ever released on vinyl, but it's the one my record player has been longing for.

Guppyboy will not cause fights in Jeffersonville

Here is a nice treat for all of you if I may say so.

Earlier tonight, my lovely wife and her brother got into a fistfight with the bouncers at a Hollywood, California bar called "Citizen Smith"

The bouncer approached her brother and demanded that he finish his beer because they were closing...they actually close at 2:00AM, but the bouncer must've had a bad watch because it was only 1:28AM.

Wifey's brother told the bartender that he still had a half an hour to finish the beer that was just sold to him, but the bouncer didn't like what he heard and grabbed him, punched him, and was just about to do more until my wife, like Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, jumped off of a potted plant and jumped on his back.

The reason I wrote all of this is because I think that if that bouncer had a copy of this album, he would've handled his customers a little better.

Rose Melberg will cause nice dreams
Click the above link to speak to nature.

Admitedly, I'd never heard of Rose Melberg until one fateful night when I came across the wonderful site

Here I learned of one of the sweetest voices in twee/indie circles.

After that fateful night, I was devoted to Mrs. Melberg's soft songs and I went on a hunt to find more of these angelic sounds.

99% of the time, I download something and try hard to buy from the artist direct. In the case of Rose Melberg, I bought the limited vinyl release of "Cast away the clouds." (Only 450 copies worldwide)

Thanks to Bradleys Almanac I became musically smarter.

Visit his Boston based site and buy all Rose Melberg releases because she's not a stupid rock star. She's a normal gal...and that's a good thing.

Anyway, here she is live for your listening pleasure.

PS. If you use the link, mention Oh, robot. Thanks cutie!

Today is "Icky Thump in my opinion" day.

I heard the album Icky Thump at 4:30 in the morning and here is my opinion...

Thank God for 30 second Youtube clips because by the time the cd got to the song "I'm slowly turning into you" I felt this wave of mystery and figured that I have just heard ear massaging music from the future.
Upon first listen I am feeling so many things...
My first impression is how noticeable it is that Jack has abandoned the dirty sound of their first three albums.
There are times where you can spot a trace of the rawness...

"Little Cream Soda" was running around the backyard of the "Handsprings" 7" and that was refreshing White Stripes territory.

I wonder if Jack is still smoking? His voice is sounding nice and high again.
I can't figure out why Meg lives in Los Angeles? I saw her at Target and she seemed happy. I also saw Marcy Von Bondie lookin' trashed, leaning up against a payphone, but that's a differrent post altogether.

"Catch Hell Blues" is good. Period.

"Effect and Cause" is terrific. It sounds like what will be referred to twenty years from now as part of the "White Stripes country phase" Meg's drumming is perfectly timed and compliments the lo-fi backyard feel.

I like the album, but the high point of the listen was "CONQUEST"
(I put that in caps because this song is epic.)

I wish they'd release a 7" on red vinyl with a reworked version of "Broken Boy Soldier" and this song...

Friday, June 1, 2007

This is his tough record.

Von Bondies Peel Sessions
Click here for clear skin.

Before getting punched in the face by Jack White, Jason Von Bondie and his gang made some excellent rock and roll music. After the punch...well, Pawn Shoppe Heart was an excellent record, but there's been too much of a hiatus from them. Anyway, enjoy this album.
*I did get to see them live and it may have been one of the top three finest shows I've gone to.

In keeping with my earlier offering of the fantastic band, The Essex Green, I figured that I might as well keep a good thing going by bringing you The Sixth Great Lake's album "Up the country"

It's basically the same band with a few differences. Where The Essex Green went towards the more trippy folk of the sixties, The Sixth Great Lake headed into the quieter side of mushroom use. Beautiful guitars strum while birds fall in love....

The Greenhornes have a gun...for you.

click this link to become a pinball wizzard.

The Greenhornes are a beautiful thing. They create stunningly faithful music that feels modern and dusty. As a rhythm section they put in work as "The Do-Whatters" for Loretta's Van Lear Rose album, The Raconteurs, and the Oh, robot favorite: Little Jack Lawrence plays the banjo, bass, and all of a sudden sings for Blanche.

I had the chance to see them live at a very intimate show where there were only about twenty people watching and it didn't seem to phase them a bit.

Thank you for stopping by.

I'm very happy you all have come, but I regrettably ask for one small favor....
leave a comment.

Mr. Airplane Man is Moanin' for sympathy...

Click this link to get free beer at the bar of your choice.
Mr. Airplane Man, God bless em', came along at the worst possible time. Although garage rock had been in existance for decades, Jack White had the new world convinced he was the creator.
Although he is definitely a high point for the scene, bands like 68' comeback, The Buzzards, and Mr. Airplane Man were overshadowed.
Not today...because I promise to deliver these overlooked bands enjoy a little attention by offering them to you.
...but hey, Jack, don't are the Jesus Christ of rock today. I picked up a guitar after years of no guitars because of "Hello Operator."
Thanks bud.
