Music blogging

With the post-Thanksgiving shopping orgy in full swing this weekend, I thought I’d share some perky, happy music with you so that you can feel soothed and relaxed. Unfortunately, I don’t write much in the way of perky, happy music, so here’s something hyper and unpleasant instead.

Beating Plastic starts out nearly funky, before turning into a blast of mechanical percussion and snarky synth. It’d make a good soundtrack for the moment when you’re stuck in traffic at Corridor G trying to find a place to park, right before you reach your limit and explode with an obscenity-laden tirade and start shooting laser beams out of your eyes.
