This week I’m going a little harder than the usual Two For Tuesday. First up is San Pedro by Mogwai
Mogwai is a band I’ve liked for a number of years. They were introduced to me by a roommate from college, Brooklyn Scotty. He’s been talking about these Scots to anyone who would listen for so long that I think he’s now their unofficial American publicist. And while I’ve been a fan for awhile now, I’ve never put a song by them on Modern Rock. Their music is usually not very accessible; it comes off as just noise to many listeners. So I was very surprised to hear their latest album, Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, actually includes some listener friendly tracks like this one. Great song and pretty interesting video too.1
This week’s second track is American Trash by Innerpartysystem.
This video has been featured on MTV2’s Subterranean for the past couple of weeks, and I’ve grown to enjoy it. I had a mental block towards it when I first heard it, as it’s been years since I’ve listened to anything even remotely electronica/industrial. I’m still not sure if I think this song is good per se, but I do enjoy it and it’s overly snarky video. What do you think? As always, hope you enjoy!
1. In fact, for all I know that might actually be Brooklyn Scotty walking in all black. He was known in college for wearing a similar hat and I could definitely see him demanding to be in this video.
