The preparation for turkey week is full gear today. There’s a lot of work to be done before the whole family comes over to my house on Thursday. I’m really keyed up to see everyone, so I thought I’d pick out a few songs from my siblings on #2ForTuesday
First up is Kill Your Heroes by AWOLNATION
My brother Paul introduced me to this band back in January. I was somewhat leery at first, but seeing their show at Pops turned me into a believer. This single is about as radio perfect as Modern Rock gets in 2012.
Next up is Big Bright World by Garbage
Garbage always reminds me of my sister Cathie, both the band and piles of smelly trash.
In the case of this song by the band Garbage, there appears to be some kind of witchcraft. Somehow Butch Vig managed to turn the clock back 15 years and crank out this 90s vintage tune. Easily the best thing outta Shirley Manson in at least a decade.
So there you have it, Kill Your Heroes and Garbage. Happy Turkey Day!
