Perfect Pussy

That's what they call themselves, which is about as good as any name I've heard in quite a while. They may be the best band to ever hail from Syracuse, NY and their sound fuses a kind of free jazz Ramones with vocals that are as intense as a Christian Bale on-set tantrum. I even hear a touch of Blonde Redhead (one of my favorite bands) in there.

It's been a very long time since I've heard punk that'd prick up these pogo-aged ears. This does it.

The Way of Love

Here's Courtney Love from her series of videos in which she digs into the gold mine and dispenses quintessential Love-ian philosophy on life, art, love, and whatever else the @%#$ she wants to talk about because she is the goddess of Love.

I thought you should know.

In this, episode four, she shares a few words on dressing for court and why she doesn't say motherf#%ker.

Prepare to Be Dumbfounded

The group's name is Babymetal. They're a mixture of death metal and J-pop. They're precious as hell. The rhythm track should leave a black skidmark down the middle of your brain while the vocals and effervescent melody add a layer of caffeinated corn syrup.

The most death metal of the lot: Here, they pose in ruffly white dresses while a satanic voice chants "Death! Death! Death!" Coming at you on a cresting wave of jail bait sugar.

Here's a more serious Irish version from the '90s: This woefully underrated band was Scheer and they hailed from County Derry, Northern Ireland. Cute girly vocals over dueling chainsaw guitars.

Hear the whole album here. It's a good one.
