This time of year makes me seriously sleepy, what with the sun going down in the middle of the afternoon and everything. That’s why I’ve put together a mix that reflects the quiet, lazy vibe of the weekend. And because we imagine you, like us, are going to spend at least part of the next few days at your childhood home, we’ve included some oldies that might remind you of the stuff you listened to in high school. From Belle & Sebastian to College to the Cocteau Twins and more, we hope you enjoy!

We were super stoked about the discovery of Kurt Cobain’s 50 Favorite Records, and in tribute, we made a little mix, featuring some of those bands. Enjoy some of Kurt’s favorite tracks from The Pixies, Daniel Johnston, Mazzy Star and more. You’ll notice that several songs on this compilation were actually covered by Nirvana — including tracks by The Vaselines and David Bowie.  And then when you’re through, throw on your beat up CD of Nevermind for extra nostalgia.

The Ermahgerd Song!
Gersberms (Yer Gervin Mah)

I am going to take “Gersberms (Yer Gervin Mah)” by Hard n’ Phrim feat. Swedish Chef as a positive omen for my European vacation. For those of you who are not yet fluent in the language of Ermahgerd, that translates to “Goosbumps (You’re Giving Me).” This tune is inspired by the Ermahgerd Girl, who inspired the Ermahgerd meme, which brought me more joy, perhaps, than ehrnytherng ehrlse this yehr.

I Wanna Eat The Whole Cake

Hannah Montana is deader than dead: Miley Cyrus’s newest musical offerings include “Bitches Love Cake,” this totally weird (on purpose) dubstep song with Borgore. It’s got a baby goat, panda and unicorn costumes, and a big ol’ cake . Oh, and Miley Cyrus’s freakishly long tongue. As commenter LR52185 told me when he sent this in, “Miley must have some Gene Simmons in her … her tongue is huuuuuuuuuuge.” All the better to lick Liam Hemsworth with, I suppose.

“This one song that I’ve got, I don’t even know what the title would be, it sounds like something John Lennon would be doing in his very psychedelic stage. It starts with these congo or bongo drums carrying this strange rhythmic pattern. And then a tambourine doing off-time hits with it… It’s pretty bizarre. But it’s pretty catchy. Who knows, maybe we’ll stick it on the next Nickelback album.”

–Chad Kroeger reveals to Men’s Health that Nickelback is sitting on a crazy, psychadelic, paradigm-shifting, super experimental–but still catchy!–song in that maybe, just maybe, will make an appearance on the band’s next album. As an avid Nickelback fan, I will be waiting with bated breath. Another major revelation from Chad’s interview? He and fiance Avril Lavigne call each other “Chavril” at home(!), and Avril has taken total control of their wedding plans: “Let’s just say she’s … steering the ship towards what is going to be the most unique wedding that the planet has probably ever seen.” Be still, my Chavril-loving heart!

It’s The Rap Coloring Book!

Whether you’ve got 99 problems or you’re a motherfuckin’ monster, chances are you probably like coloring books. (Everyone likes coloring books.) And this quirky rap coloring book will keep you busy coloring in Jay-Z and connecting the dots on Tupac. Too bad Nicki Minaj is excluded, because you totally could have used all the crayons in your box coloring on her crazy hair. [ANIMAL New York]

Courtney Love

Courtney Love is working on a movie or Broadway musical about her relationship with Kurt Cobain set to Nirvana music, according to none other than Britney Spears’ ex-manager Sam Lufti. Lufti is currently suing Spears and her parents for defamation and explained in court yesterday how he’s been keeping busy.  ”[Love and I] are currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on [Love's] life and Kurt Cobain’s,” he explained. Outside the courtroom Lufti clarified the musical/movie is just “an idea,” which I suppose it has to be for now because Love is on bad terms with both her daughter Frances Bean Cobain and Cobain’s ex-bandmates. But hey, if creating a musical that might never get made is keeping Courtney Love busy and off Twitter, I say go on with your bad self.  [Guardian UK] [Photo: Bauer Griffin]

I grew up in a small, rural town where muddy trucks would cruise up and down main street with rifles mounted in the back window and country music blasting from the speakers. I grew up hating country music. I thought it was stupid, cheesy, and ignorant. To me, country music was the soundtrack to a conservative, small-town mentality that felt incredibly stifling. I tuned it out in favor of pop, rap, oldies, indie rock, and metal (for years my musical taste could be easily summed up as “Everything except country!”) until one day in 2003, when the Dixie Chicks caused a firestorm by speaking out against President Bush on stage. This was progressive, ballsy, the complete antithesis to everything I thought I knew about country music. I realized if these kinds of women were singing country songs, maybe it was time for me to reconsider my hatred for the genre. I slowly–and secretly–starting getting into country. Pretty soon I was asking friends for country recommendations and discovering that I have a serious banjo fetish.

This year I drove two-hundred miles roundtrip to attend a country music festival and even took a trip to Nashville to get my live banjo fix. My high school self would be stunned. Here are seven things I’ve learned to love about country music since my conversion to a proud country fan… Keep reading »
