Penguin Prison : ‘Calling Out’ on a Monday

I was lucky enough to see Penguin Prison play a live set with vocals for the second time on Saturday night and it was nothing short of fun.  To give you an idea of how fun it was, he begun his set with a cover of Lionel Richie’s ‘All Night Long’. I also discovered during the set that he has a new song out. I listened to it for the first time today and it’s pure 80’s goodness.  So let’s keep the start of the week nice and happy.

The Mars Volta : ‘Goliath’ on a Saturday

A few days ago, the keyboardist for Jack White’s band passed away.  But for me he will always be the keyboardist for the Mars Volta. It just so happens that I have been re-visiting all their albums of late, and it’s easy to see that a lot of the band’s sound can be attributed to keyboardist Ikey Owens.

Case in point : ‘Goliath’.  Anyone who thinks twice about listening to the Mars Volta really needs to put headphones on, and give this 7 minute masterpiece a listen.  It’s brutal, it’s fierce, and it’s a music time bomb that ultimately explodes from 03:50 onwards.  I’ve got goosebumps just thinking about it.
