What’s up, sports fans? It’s that time of week again where someone on this site writes about three tracks that are killing it on their stereo. Come get some:
1. “Leathers” – Deftones
Deftones writes about sex and they do so with a mixture of angular nu-metal and atmospheric – oh, forget it. You know what Deftones sound like. Don’t play that game. They’re like Tool or Slipknot: they have a signature sounds that means you can chuck literally any of their songs on instantly recognize it as them. I love them so dearly, and “Leathers” was the first single off Koi No Yokan for a damn good reason.
2. “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros” – Flight Of The Conchords
They call me the/Hiphopotamus/Flows that glows like phosphorous/Poppin’ off the top of this oesophagus/Rockin’ this metropolis/I’m not a large water-dwelling mammal/Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis/Did Steve tell you that, perchance?/*shakes fist. “Steeeeeeeeeve!”
In short, dude’s got mad rhymes.
3. “Reign Of Darkness” – Thy Art Is Murder
Because there isn’t anything more fun than seeing Thy Art Is Murder at a show and yelling “YOU WILL SEE THE TRUE FACE OF PANIC!” while CJ does his weird eyeball bulge thing.
