Tueday Morning Music Fix: The Rosebuds, Why?, Nick Cave and More


Animal Rights

Toonces the Driving Cat won’t go down in history as SNL’s crowning achievement, and my guess is the problem was casting. See what could have been with the Rosebuds’ video cover of Salt-N-Pepa’s ahh, “Push It,” or just grab the MP3 below.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin was put in an awkward position last year when the former Russian leader died, but the Springfield, Missouri, outfit held on to the name and is getting ready to release its sophomore LP. Grab the very catchy first single below, thanks to Stereogum.

Pershing is out April 8 on Polyvinyl.

Mustache Ride


Nick Cave (with Bad Seeds intact) is following up last year’s excellent Grinderman side-project with Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! The album comes out April 8 on Anti- Records. Until then, check out the video for the title track and marvel at Cave’s creepy ‘stache, right here . Also, the special edition of his 1989 novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel hits bookstores today.

Hair Plugs

Male pattern baldness is no laughing matter, so to prepare us for Alopecia, Oakland’s Why? has cooked up a cover of the Cure’s “Close to Me” that’s dark enough to bum Robert Smith out. The song won’t be on the upcoming LP, but if you haven’t copped the first single, “The Hollows”, you definitely should.

Why?: “Close to Me” MP3

Why?: “The Hollows” MP3 from Alopecia

Alopecia is due March 11 on Anticon.
