Fantasy Football Champion’s Anthem!

Did you just win your fantasy football league or something equally epic? Not quite sure how to make your competition aware of just how much better you are than them? Worry no more my friend, we have the video for you. Let the trash talking commence!

Whether you won overcoming incredible odds, or you just simply steamrolled over your competition in dominating fashion, this song will let the other participants know whats up. You won, Champ! You are the Conor McGregor of your league, and those other guys just want the privilege of being in your AWESOME presence.

So the next time you have one of your league members tell you about how they ACTUALLY did well in a different league… or how injuries hit THEM really hard… or how kids make it SO hard to be active… or how they were actually good in the REGULAR season (and then choked)… or some other BS… just know that you may be dealing with a butt-hurter. Just instruct them to STFU and crank up these tunes and let them know they can lick your balls!

*this video applies to all sorts of haters. Side effects from this video on haters may include:

-Whining
-Extreme Butt-hurt
-Crying
-Complaining
-Keeping Reggie Wayne

*If their butt-hurt last more than 72 hours, kindly tell them to visit their butt-hurt care professional. 

You can download all of our songs off of iTunes or SoundCloud!

Your Friday Jam: Some F-ing Rhymes

“Do ya know what we need, man? Some rhymes.”

Absolutely. What are ya, insane?”

No I ain’t. Action Bronson‘s always dropping a rhyme.”

What?”

Yeah. He’s got a lot of rhymes dropping all around him in the songs, and it always works.”

You’ve lost it, haven’t ya?”

No, I’m serious.”

Me too. That’s stupid. Name one thing you gonna need a rhyme for.”

You don’t f-ing’ know what you’re gonna need it for. They just always need it.”

What’s this ‘they’ shit? This isn’t a song.”

Oh, right.”

Is that right, Chance?”

All right. Drop your stupid f-ing’ rhyme.”

I’ll drop my stupid rhyme. I’ll drop it. This is a dope rhyme right here.”

Your Friday Jam: Losing Side of Twenty-Five

In a matter of a few hours I will be heading out for some live music – a band introduced to me by my brother just this year.  American Aquarium out of North Carolina possesses a gritty, roots rock sound that meshes perfectly with tobacco and alcohol – specifically cigarettes and brown liquor.

Apparently they considered calling it quits just a few short years ago.  The band was unable to gain much traction outside of a small group of loyal followers, and with hardly enough cash to support themselves the members went into the studio for what they thought was going to be their last album.  Turns out Burn.Flicker.Die. actually sold, and American Aquarium came back with another album earlier this year.

I have never seen them live, but have heard that it is quite the experience and am very much looking forward to rocking out with them this evening.  Before I do, please enjoy “Losing Side of Twenty-Five”, from their latest album Wolves.

Your Friday Jam: Is Back!

Guess who’s back, back again.  Klar is back, tell a friend.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, bros and hoes, it is I, your purveyor of excellent music, back with another jam to kick-off an epic weekend.

Deciding what song to play this week was rather difficult.  Mac Miller has a new album that is quite good.  Brandon Flowers (of The Killers fame) released his second solo album earlier this year that I never got around to posting.  However, this spot has always been a “fly by the seat of my pants” area, and I usually just post whatever song I was jamming to that day.

This week is no different.  And while you should 100% listen to the above mentioned albums, this week’s jam is coming to you from Johnny Cooper.  Cooper combines the two excellent genres of red dirt country and alt-country, and does a brilliant job of it as you can hear from “Can’t Hold Onto You”, off his 2009 album Follow.

Your Friday Jam: Spanish Mary

Most folks consider Bob Dylan to be one of the greatest songwriters America, if not the world, has ever produced.  The man was prolific in his work, and wrote a number of songs that he never actually recorded – masterpieces that were destined to never be heard.  Thankfully, in stepped The New Basement Tapes, a group of musicians who decided to band together and let the world hear these previously unrecorded Dylan tracks.  In 2014 Jim James, Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Taylor Goldsmith, and Rhiannon Giddens all banded together to perform twenty Dylan songs, and the result is truly spectacular.  Every song on their album, Lost on the River, is worth more than one listen, but the track below might be my favorite.  Enjoy this week’s Friday Jam.

Your Friday Jam: THE KING

This week’s Friday Jam is a combination music post and UFC post.  My favorite MMA fighter, The Notorious Conor McGregor, is fighting this Sunday night in Boston (and on Fox Sports 1), and a win for him solidifies a title shot.  The last time the Irishman fought in Boston he was on the under-card, yet the UFC still dimmed the arena lights and blared his song for his walk-out.  What was his song?  Well, it started with one of the most epic of Irish ballads, the Foggy Dew with Senad O’Connor and The Chieftains:

And then turned into the most fitting song for the location, Shipping Up to Boston by The Dropkick Murphy’s:

So enjoy the fight this Sunday – you will see one of the most talented strikers currently walking the face of the earth, the King, the Notorious, Conor McGregor.

Your Friday Jam: Waiting on the Maker

For anyone who has listened to even a handful of my Friday Jams (or simply taken a peek at my iTunes library), you know that I am a huge fan of The Departed, as well as their previous incarnation, Cross Canadian Ragweed.  With their latest album HippieLovePunk releasing next week on Tuesday, January 13th – this week’s jam just HAD to come from the upcoming album.  However, I had already posted all of the pre-released tracks here already, and we ain’t about reruns here.  Then, as if by Divine providence, The Departed released another track just a few days ago.

Maker is a tribute to a member of The Departed’s road crew, Lovey, who believe it or not, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting before at previous shows with The Departed.  Lovey owns the distinction of being the world’s oldest roadie (it’s not like anyone fact checks these things), and the song perfectly encapsulates his laid back attitude.  And when the keys come in towards the end of the song… dear Lord.

Click on the image below to check out Maker.  Also, pre-order the new album here (they have several different packages available).

Your Friday Jam: Conceal, Don’t Feel

No words are necessary for this post.  Just remember, let it go.

And Merry Christmas y’all!

Your Friday Jam: Ooga Chacka

Before you start complaining, I know this movie came out months ago (and the music decades ago), but the soundtrack just fit the film so perfectly  that I’ve been listening to it at least once a week pretty much since the move was released.    Besides, who doesn’t love some feel good jams set to a feel-good movie?  What are you, a Communist?  Or just a bunch of a-holes?

Guardians of the Galaxy will be out out on Blu-ray (and DVD for you Neanderthals) on December 9, so practice those dance moves in case you need to save the galaxy.

Ooga chacka, ooga ooga, ooga chacka…

Your Friday Jam: Hozier

This weekend’s jam comes from Andrew Hozier-Byrne, a young musician born and raised in County Wicklow, Ireland.  You’re probably seen the Beats by Dre commercial with LeBron James featuring the lead single off of his first album Hozier (which also happened to be the lead single off of his first EP Take Me To Church in 2013).  Thankfully Beats chose this young man to be the sound of their latest campaign – if they hadn’t many people would have never discovered his music.

Today, however, you’re getting my personal favorite track off of Hozier’s debut album, It Will Come Back.  The bluesy-rock sound reverberating from this song, and honestly the whole album, is hauntingly beautiful.  Hozier seems to hearken back to the great American singer song writers of the 20th century and seems to encapsulate the sound of Americana.  Such natural talent is truly a breath of fresh air during this time of over-processed popular “music”.
