What is the Light?

December 9, 2009

I forget how pop-wonderful The Flaming Lips can be. I’ve been pretty disappointed with them the past couple of years, but I’ve been slowly bringing out some of their older albums, e.g. The Soft Bulletin, which is where I pulled the title of my post from. “What is the Light?” is a true musical delight. When they released this album back in 1999, it was their 9th. NINTH. These guys were pounding out music. Their first full length Hear it Is is a pleasure to hang out with, I’m also a fan of Transmissions from the Satellite Heart which arguably features their most famous track “She don’t use Jelly.” It’s so famous you can even hear a sample of it on Wikipedia.

Moving on, my show is tonight from 8 to 10 pm listen in on KRUI 89.7 fm or online here. I don’t have many shows left, so listen in.

Here’s some of the set:

People are in love with Christina Martinez….

May 19, 2009

One of my favorite things to do since starting my blog is to check my stats. It tells me what people search for to get to my blog, how many people come on a daily basis, and what links they hit when they are here. But, what has been most interesting for me the past month or so is the searches that people are doing to get to “Radio Loveless the Blog”.

The top searches are listed below:
1. Christina Martinez
2. Boss Hog- Christina Martinez
3. Christina Martinez’s Boobs.

This shocked me. I have posted about Guided by Voices, Shoegaze, My Bloody Valentine, PJ Harvey, but the thing that everyone wants to know about is Christina Martinez and its the album cover of Christina Martinez’s band Boss Hog that I posted in the 1995 to 2000 shown here that seems to get all the attention.

I love Christina, don’t get me wrong, but what is it about this woman? Is it that she is nude on over 50% of her album covers (some featured below)? Is it her sultry voice? Is it because she got to marry Jon Spencer? Is it just because she is so damn HOT?  I just don’t understand. Someone please explain this to me.
