With perfect time, Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin begins the weekend after the election. This Genius list is in honor of that. Leave yours—or your random ten—in comments.
Original song: “Crystal Cat”—Dan Deacon
1) “Ghost Hardware”—Burial
2) “Future”—Cut Copy
3) “Hallelujah”—The Happy Mondays
4) “Destroy Everything You Touch”—Ladytron
5) “I Get Around”—Dragonette
6) “TKO”—Le Tigre
7) “Television Rules The Nation”—Daft Punk
9) “Romeo”—Basement Jaxx (this is one of my top 5 favorite dance songs, ever)
10) “New York, I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down”—LCD Soundsystem
Instead of playing videos from the Genius list, I thought I’d play some stuff from bands that the Norbizness and I are going to check out.
The Octopus Project:
You can check out the lineup here. Because they have a system where there are double stages—as soon as one band goes off one half, the other one goes on the other—it’s both awesome (no waiting) and overwhelming (you really do have to make hard choices).
