Red Right Hand: 7
*He is not a secret agent. Not at all.

 

7

I'm totally swiping this from Warren Ellis. He got tagged with it by some Kid Shirt guy, but...whatever the fuck. It is as follows:
List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to.
Dresden Dolls - "The Jeep Song"
Dresden Dolls is the unofficial official band of Hellcat. I dream that when Hellcat is bought and shot as a pilot and picked up to series on Fox, that the Dolls will record the theme.

Portishead - "Silence"
Really, the only track on the new album that reminds me of Portishead. Ten years between albums might not have served too well. This one, though, is classic Portishead.

Nine Inch Nails - "Demon Seed"
Unexpectedly my favorite track on the new NIN. Some interesting lyrics, an odd mutating structure and an interesting deconstruction toward the end. And some nifty vocal effects. Yeah, I said fuckin' nifty.

Deftones - "The Chauffeur "
Lately, the first thing I start playing whenever I pick up my guitar. Prior, it was the Doctor Who theme. Better than the original Duran Duran recording. Though, about even with the live version from Arena that has that rumbling bass piano in the beginning.

Nick Cave - "Dig, Lazarus, Dig"
Just cuz it's weird. It's not not like his usual dreary tales of bloodletting. Which isn't to say that I'm not inordinately fond of those, as may well be obvious. This just has some kind of weird alternate version of the 70's vibe going on. It's like a world where Gerald Ford got a second term or something.

Nine Inch Nails - "35 Ghosts IV"
There's just something crime-ridden about this. Like some New York cops that jack up a guy and wire him to nail some dealer. Except he's wired with an ocular implant and the the dealer is selling sex slave clones of Eva Mendes. Wait for the cop show guitar solo at the end.

Elemental - Cup of Brown Joy
Just fucking watch the video.

And here are the seven people who will completely ignore my tagging them (nor do I blame them). Emily. Bill. Shawna. Avitable. Josh. Shinkicker. Adam.
