Sunday Scoop: Songs Never Played Together

Man, was I “out there” when I picked the last Fiver or what?  Talk about all over the spectrum!  Ah, well – say what you will about the carnival ride of genres – you can’t say it was boring…

Two Old, Two New, One a Blend Just For You

Happy Friday, and welcome to the recently resurrected Fiver, wherein we post five tracks – totally blind – for your aural digestion, and impatiently await your unfettered reactions to them in the comments below.  Per the norm, we shall return again on Sunday with the Scoop – the “big reveal” that illuminates all.

I Don’t Want to Go On the Cart

Monty Python reference notwithstanding, allow me a moment of most grave sincerity to say that I have SO MISSED you people! Ri here…the one who dropped the ball, went into a cave and left this poor site to die a slow, miserable death. What has it been…two years ago, now? I’m pretty sure we missed…

And then there were five. Plus a bonus track.

I was gonna say it’s 5 plus 1 because “Friday six pack” doesn’t have as nice a ring to it as Friday Fiver .. but who am I kidding? Everyone loves a six pack. Except when those people like airbrush the six pack onto their abs. But the tattoo of the six pack is kind…

The Fiver

“… Are you restless like me?” That’s the refrain that’s been running through my head (FTR, it’s from “Up the Cuts” by Against Me!). I’ve been digging into music willy-nilly over here, trying to fill in some music-shaped hole that I have. Springtime is a stressful time for me, and I deal with stress through…

Friday Fiver – The SXSW Edition

SXSW is starting.  My husband is down in good old Texas for the geek portion of the conference.  He is missing the music, which is probably a good thing because I would be green with envy.  I love the music that comes out of SXSW – some of my favorites started at SXSW. So today’s…

Let there be fiver

It’s Mari! I’m posting a Fiver of random songs. You can decide whether or not that’s a good thing.

Dreamers who Fake it in Wooden Ships while giving Candy to Dead Parrots

Track 1:  “Fake It” by Seether I love this song…not a little because I feel exactly this way on LOTS of days.  Plus, the music has just enough edge without trying too hard to be grating or angst-ridden or creepy.  Funny, I haven’t sought out more Seether – maybe because this song stands alone and…

Friday Fiver: Random Shuffle Edition

Ri here – yes, the one who never visits you anymore.  Apologies – here’s my attempt to make it up, with a quickie Fiver that I plucked at absolute and total random from the embarrassingly large amount of music and random files I have uploaded to my server…just in case I ever need them. No…

Fridays taste better with Fivers.

Happy freakin’ New Year! It’s Fiver time.
