The Two-Minute Miracles – “The Bee Hell”

Observe the rooftop beard in winter.

“The Bee Hell” comes from Volume IV: The Lions of Love (2007). Torontonians can catch a rare appearance by The Two-Minute Miracles tonight, at The Great Hall, for (weewerk) Records’ 13th anniversary shindig.

Mad Ones – “Walking The Ceiling”

That jerk Palpatine won’t let anyone have any fun. All Chewbacca wanted to do was use his newly-gained superpowers to fly around the forest, but ol’ Lightning Bolt Hands couldn’t stand to see someone enjoying themselves.

Can Chewie defeat the most dangerous man in the galaxy? Who will control the power crystal?

Pick this single up for free at Mad Ones’ Bandcamp site.

Sleater-Kinney – “Bury Our Friends”

Joyous day—there’s a surprise Sleater-Kinney album on the way (January). You’ll find that beauty up there, on it.

It’s apparently Miranda July gettin’ down in the creepy old man mask.

King Tuff – “Black Moon Spell”

Get your devil horns out and your head-bangable hair ready; you’re going to need them for this one.

No song has made me want to air guitar right from the get-go more than King Tuff’s “Black Moon Spell”.  It’s actually next to impossible to resist the urge. Presently I’m writing this in a public place, so resistance is necessary. It’s also futile. Oh, fuck it! Air guitar in public it is.

Try and stop me.

God Help The Girl – “I’ll Have To Dance With Cassie”

No, it’s not a Grease remake; this scene comes to us from God Help The Girl, written and directed by Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch.

We have to call out Murdoch, here, for a blatant double dip. “I’ll Have To Dance With Cassie” originally appeared on the album God Help The Girl, in 2009. It’s making the rounds again, now, on the God Help The Girl Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, which contains most of the tunes from that older record, plus some extras.

P.S. That’s Catherine Ireton’s voice you’re hearing, not Emily Browning’s.
