Greg’s go music

I’m a creature of routine before a night out with my friends. Pushups and dumbbell curls, check. Shower, check. Big dinner — with no garlic — while watching “Flight of the Conchords,” check.

That leaves getting dressed and leaving my apartment in the right mood, and you can bet I’ll have my laptop blasting something upbeat during that time. I thought I’d pass on what’s currently fitting the bill for me, and they’re both from one of my favorite artists.

LCD Soundsystem is pretty much standard listening for any hipster, and I’m no different. His new album, “This is Happening,” isn’t my favorite of his works, but it’s got a couple of bangers:

Pow Pow — I know the Black Eyed Peas put out a song with a similar title, but from this position, I can say this track is much better.

Drunk Girls: I love a dance song with a message. James Murphy mixes profound observations “Drunk girls know that love is an astronaut/It comes back but it’s never the same” with juvenile ones “Drunk girls wait an hour to pee.” And he’s right each time.

And it’s hard to knock this call to arms for every bar: “Oh, Oh, oh, I believe in waking up together/So, oh, oh, That means making eyes across the room.”

The Talking Heads are strong with this band.

My current favorite happy up to date band is MGMT. Take psychedelic, eighties, electronica, pop, funk, alright a hell of alot of good stuff and throw it in a blender.
