SATURDAY MORNING IN MY FANTASY WORLD

Can we talk about the utter sweetness of friends who make you LOL HOPZ for your birthday?

Hey.

Do you like music?
I know it's way early to talk about favorites of the year and actually, heirarchy is bogus business and not tremendously productive in the first place, but I thought maybe I would share this mini list because a few people have asked.
MY ACTUAL FAVORITE RECORDS OF THE YEAR 2007 IN NOT ANY SORT OF EXACT ORDER:

1. Fiest - The Reminder. I did not "get" this album until I saw her play a show and I was besmitten. I listen to it often. Maybe you might like it too. I don't know if it "better" than other records, but I like to listen to it for light solo dancing, cooking and cleaning accompaniment.

2. Boys Noize - Oi Oi Oi. He's German, but he does French crush-you blown-bass thump so well.

3. The Screaming Females new one. Not as much in actual listening as in heartspace/live show experience because Marissa is doing a more theatrical singing that I'm not positive I can hang tough with.

4. NO AGE - Weirdo Rippers. I don't think I fully understand all the way yet because I haven't seen them play yet, and I think that is the other half of their 1000 pc. tiger puzzle.

5. The Diplo remix of M.I.A. "Boyz" sticks better than anything on her record, though I really like Kala's feeling of third-world boo-ya, frosty almost menacing anti hook production, fuck-you-first-world sour notes. Her gunplay and money love seems to be born of a different angle than the current MP3-remix-blog-mash-up-money-lifestyle-eagerness--urgently-circa-now-era songs that feel like being slapped in the face with a dick wrapped in coke-rolled $20s*, nonetheless, I just can't make it through the entire album.
