Here we go again….
On the last episode of Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations”, it showed him recording some material with UK trip-hop outfit Morcheeba. The bit featured in the episode was a track where he talks about Michael Caine in Get Carter, but I found out that track hasn’t been released yet. I tracked down the following single, though, which is based on one of Bourdain’s short fiction pieces: Morcheeba (feat. Anthony Bourdain) – “Lisa.”
The bit of music that was used in all of the advertising for the third Jason Bourne film, The Bourne Ultimatum, but did not appear on the soundtrack. An excellent piece by Crystal Method, featuring a now-thankfully-Fred-Durst-less Wes Borland on guitar: Crystal Method – “Weapons of Mass Distortion.”
One of the songs that I was listening to quite a bit in the mid-80s, that thankfully has not been co-opted by the false-nostalgia merchants desperate to convince middle-of-the-road America that they listened to “I’ll Melt With You” back then…. Dramarama – “Anything, Anything.”
For all the folks who are all squishy and romantic, whether because of yesterday’s Corporately-Mandated Expression of Love Day or otherwise, one of my favorite love songs, and my all-time favorite song by Ani DiFranco. Ani DiFranco – “As Is.”
Keeping it in the love song mode for a bit, some new stuff from producer extraordinaire (and Grammy winner as Producer of the Year) Mark Ronson, who put together this cover a Mary J. Blige tune for a tribute album marking the 40th anniversary of BBC Radio 1: Mark Ronson (feat. Wale) – “You’re All I Need To Get By.”
And lastly, more hipster-spy electronica from NYC-based Ursula1000 (who did “Kinda Kinky” that I posted a long while back, for those that remember)…Ursula1000 – “The Girl from N.O.W.H.E.R.E.”
There ya go! Enjoy.
