Welcome back to my weekly list of things I love that you should love too for the week of May 30, 2016.
1. Lady Dynomite: What do you get when you combine the comedic genius of Maria Bamford with the TV stylings of Arrested Development's Mitch Hurwitz? Well perfection of course, in this case that perfect is the Netflix series Lady Dynamite. Lady Dynamite is the perfect blend of Maria Bamford's voice with Mitch Hurwitz's aesthetic. Shit is perfect television joy. Maria Bamford is a god damned national treasure.
2. Zilla Rocca - Anything I Touch I Bruise (Remix Album): My guess is that you have never heard of Zilla Rocca before because your brand of nerd is comic book, not rap. Don't let that scare you away from one of the more interesting voices in the indie rap scene. Zilla is drenched in noir stylings and scotch. His remixes add layers of complexity and class to already brilliant works. Listening to the Zilla Remix is like watching Elmore Leonard rewrite Ferris Buehler's Day Off, it was already perfect, but now its more layered and has more muscle cars and shit.
4. Off!: The Circle Jerks sits comfortably in the top 5 of my all time favorite band list. So you could imagine how overjoyed I was when I learned that Circle Jerk front man had a new group called Off! and that it didn't even slightly suck, in fact it was pure perfection. It was everything you would hope the man that made the classic album Group Sex would evolve into. Off! is going to become your new favorite band....unless you are an asshole or something.
