The Motorettes - Baby Come Home

This great cut has only really one purpose – can you remember 1976 & all the fun groups that made you dance at cbgbs??? A big, greasy cheeseburger for your ears made at one of those joints that looked like busses stripped of their wheels and left stranded with a grill and bright lights so people passing by could actually see the oil dripping off your chin as you tried your best to keep from bopping while eating – an impossible task with music this fun. A punk-flavored take on Springsteen is simply adding a milkshake to the meal. The Motorettes

The Panic Channel - Lie Next to Me

“Space/seems like it’s organized against me/but I/victim of gravity/can fly when you lie next to me.” A very cool cut – especially after doing their best for 11 cuts to attempt to tear every cell out of my ear and shred it through a black hole hidden deep inside a “dream worth remembering”. I expect Adam Sandler would use this in if his next movie if he heard it. The untitled cut that follows feels like it could easily fit in the old movie – 2001 A Space Odyssey. The Panic Channel

Pama International - Fisherman

"I need to feed my family" moves the beat until I am no longer dreaming but dancing with this plea for being sure the wealth of the nations reach down to those in true need. The reality, sad but true, is the fisherman has to stop thinking of making wealth for himself so he can pay more taxes so more poor people can be exploited. Of course, this song is an allegory to all 'businessmen' whose sole purpose is to exploit and think they are earning wealth for themselves, when in reality they are making the government rich and starving their fellow earth dwellers. Very cool song worth tasting many many times. Pama International

The Mars Volta - Vicarious Atonement

Traveling though inner space is a great way to experience music. This track flows everywhere and anywhere in and out and through. Definitely an experience worth seeking out. Can't figure out what the heck the singer is on about: "Maybe i will always haunt you/Mark the somnolence with truth", but for the eartaste it doesn't matter. The music works. Mars Volta


I plan to simply comment on a track that has caught my attention. I will not include a history of each band, etc - there's plenty of that on the web. Just want to let anyone gliding through here know about music worth seeking out. Won't talk about crap. Not worth eartaste's time.
