We haven't had one of these since the Daft Punk Soundtrack fiasco. So let me share something to get the ball rolling again.
This is the album Ring from Cameron Mesirow aka Glasser.
Its pretty funky. Reminds me of a rain forest. But also has some electronic music in there as well. Check it out.
Today's song of the day is a bit different. It's the entire discography of the Bloodhound Gang.
Now you may be asking Anonymous, how can you have every song one band make be song of the day? Well I can, because they have a formula for making songs.
Let's review it shall we?
Sexual puns + catchy beat + young teen boy sense of appeal = blood hound gang song.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xat1GVnl8-k This is Bad Touch, probably one of their most famous songs. Lyrics like "You and me baby ain't nothin' but mammals/So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel" appeal to the formula. It's seriously just a song of sexual innuendos.
According to wikipedia this is one of their other popular songs.

Sample Lyric: Yeah I'm hung like planet Pluto hard to see with the naked eye,
But if I crashed into Uranus I would stick it where the sun don't shine,
More formula usage here.
This is Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo. FUCK. Clever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZpxaiNV_sM&feature=related
They've been around since 1992, and they manage to sound like every generic band on whatever year they release the album. I say that's impressive enough for a song of the day.
Special Affections by Diamond Rings
I love this album. Its instant pop. I imagine this as an album that if I were having a party, I would plug this thing and play, no objections from the crowd. If you want to revisit the late 80s and early 90s synth-pop age (in a good way (i know...a good way? impossible)) then this is for you.
Besides being sounding like it was recorded in a basement, there isn't much wrong with the album. The lyrics are a little dry sometimes, but the beats stick in your head like glue. Give it a try.
