Mothers are so hot right now

Today I am trying to focus on work in the waning hours of my week, before heading off to play dice, four-square and double dutch tonight in a Denver warehouse, if’n my body remembers how.


Meanwhile, I am listening to The Dead Weather, the latest scathing musical side project of Jack White, along with Alison Mosshart (The Kills), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age), and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs). I haven’t figured out why this song suggests I treat anyone like my mother, but I like the way it sounds:

Treat Me Like Your Mother – The Dead Weather

And, I am also thoroughly entertained with Drowned In Sound’s feature on the indie-rock reconnaissance notes of Grizzly Bear guitarist Daniel Rossen’s mother:


While trolling for GB reviews, I somehow came across Deerhunter at the Bowery Ballroom on Pitchfork or somewhere and was shocked at poor Bradford Cox’s appearance. He just looked positively terminal and that gold dress didn’t help either….

Read the rest of her emails here. Best mom EVER.


  • That note about Bradford Cox kinda bummed me out. But GB mama blogging officially ends the rest of my Friday work day more goofing off. Hooray!

  • i didnt know that all of them were in a side project together.. i like it :) but after hearing it, i think that it is pretty good representation of the different styles of the white stripes, the kills, and queens of the stone age.

    i likey

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
