Song of the Day - October 13, 2005

We had a taste of this next band last week on my 100 Proof Whiskey playlist. Well, I couldn't do with just one sip. I need more of the Ex-Girl. Unfortunately, they only have one album on Rhapsody, Back to the Mono Kero, but it is an excellent one. I must say that it is an acquired taste. The Ex-Girl are 3 Japanese girls that are an amalgamation of many musical styles and influences. There are definite riot grrrl, new wave, and noise pop influences here. Try to imagine a combination of the B-52's, Queen as geisha girls, and Sleater-Kinney. My song of the day is Sasuke. This is relatively mild compared to the craziness of "Waving Scientist @ Frog King." I like craziness by the way. They also do a quirky version of "Pop Musik." Other outstanding tracks include "Tozka" and "Solid States Kerock 'N' Roll." Click on the link to hear the entire album Back to the Mono Kero
