FINALLY!!!!! Official word has been released on the 4th album by electro/punk rock goddess, Peaches! I Feel Cream is out in the states of May 5th (just in time for drunken fun on the Mexican holiday!). Back in October Miss Peach mentioned that Simian Mobile Disco, and Digitalism were among some of  the producers on the new material. As if word of more Peaches goodness wasn't enough, this information  sent us into a Pointer Sisters kind of excitement!

Last week with the official announcement of the new album, Drums of Death whom also lent his midas touch to the new album felt the much appreciated need to make a Peaches mix tape showcasing some of the new material. By the sound of it, it seems as if Peaches has taken a more vocal and pure dance direction with this record. I feel this is the perfect direction to take with the new album. While her last three efforts were all superb in my book, it's nice to see her getting in touch with the other side of talent she holds. With a bit of a preview on Downtown from Impeach My Bush, she surely has a pretty ass voice. One that I welcome with open arms.

Peaches is EDM's Madonna, except much dirtier and much more original. She is truly queen HBIC, and I can totally see her releasing albums for quite a while. Peaches never gets old, and thrills and excites with each project.  May 5th can not come quick enough. ENJIZZOY! --MikeeGB

ROCK CLASSICA: Elvin Bishop - Fooled Around & Fell In Love

Obviously for me the best kind of "rock" music would be the type that adds a bit of electronic elements to it. Bands like ELO, Journey, The Who, and...Elvin Bishop. In the 70's the use of a synthesizer made for an interesting sound that took rock music to a whole 'nother level. 

Fooled Around & Fell In Love is one of my favorite tracks from the era of 70' synth inspired rock music. It's got such an incredibly eerie feel to it while at the same time still being somewhat romantic. Since the movie Summer Of Sam featured it while the killer went on a rampage killing couples having sex in their cars it creeps me out even more.

On this day of love and devotion I hope you enjoy this timeless classic regardless of it's "cheating ways " message. I hope it makes you want to go out into your car with a loved one and have sexual relations. Just be sure to have a glock, and always be on the look out! LUV MikeeGB

TV LAND: Opening Theme of United States of Tara

Ok so in case you have yet to become obsessed with this new "dark comedy" sitcom, I am here to do my job and praise the fabulous! 

I had been looking forward to this show once I read that Diablo Cody who wrote the movie Juno was working on a Showtime sitcom about a woman with multiple personalities. They already had me. Then I come to hear Toni Collette (a very exquisite actress, and an all time fav) was going to play that very woman. The show hadn't even aired and already I was a fan. 

Now let me just say we are already on episode 4 and this show definitely went above and beyond my expectations. It's a FANTASTIC show that you all MUST get into. It funny, sad, thrilling, and genuine all in one. I urge you ALL to get into the Showtime action and make Tara your new best friend.

The opening theme is also quite fantastic itself. It has no official title but we can say it has a working title of United States Of Tara Opening Theme. Written and produced by Tim Delaughter of the Polyphonic Spree, it's absolutely a perfect fit to open the show. Enjoy a 57 second clip below, hopefully we'll get a full version of this magical track. Also for those feeling the strings of a shitty economy I have placed a link to watch the FULL pilot episode! ENJIZZOY!! -- MikeeGB
