25 X96 Fall Music Suggestions

After last, Big Ass Show, Saturday one thing is clear: Summer is over. It's gone, baby. We are now in the season of reverence, thoughtfulness, self-reflection, warm beverages and too-soon festive decorations lining store shelves.

So, in the spirit of the changing leaves and chilly air I have assembled 25 songs that I think fit the season. It's probably not the cheeriest of playlists, but there is some great stuff here. Some of it you may know and some not so much. Some of the songs are new and some old. And yes, the list leans a little hipster - tis the season of scarfs, after all.

Feel free to leave some of your own suggestions in the comments.

(Note: This is a playlist, so hit play and let it roll).

1. Radiohead "How to Disappear Completely"

2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Skeletons"

3. Julian Casablancas of The Strokes "I'll Try Anything Once"

4. Jeff Buckley "Hallelujah"

5. Alt-J "Warm Foothills"

6. Arcade Fire "Rococo"

7. Mando Diao "How We Walk"

8. Foo Fighters "Walking After You"

10. Fleet Foxes "White Winter Hymnal"

11. Perfume Genius "Queen"

12. Interpol "My Blue Supreme"

13. Phantogram "The Day You Died"

14. Stars "In Our Bedroom After the War"

15. Beck "Waking Light"

16. Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins "Melt Your Heart"

17. Smashing Pumpkins "To Shelia"

18. Young the Giant "Mind Over Matter"

19. Incubus "Stellar"

Fresh X: Weezer - Stream the New Album

You can finally listen to the new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" a week before it's released.

To my surprise many of the so-called hipster blogs and critics have thrown high praise on this album. It could be because Ric Ocasek, who produced their "Blue" album has returned to produce this one, or perhaps it's okay to like Weezer again. Could be the music is that good.

You can decide for yourself by streaming the album over at iTunes Radio.

Enjoy,

-Corey O'Brien

Fresh X: Weezer Share Another Track From Their New Album Corey O'Brien |

Fresh X: Weezer Share Another Track From Their New Album

The new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" will be out on October 7th, so I am guessing we will get a full stream of the album sometime next week. Until them the band has shared another track. This is the closest thing I have head to the "Blue Album" and it makes plenty of sense since Rick Ocasek produced that album as well. Two minutes and fourty-nine seconds of what could work as a sequel to "Buddy Holly" in spirit.

Enjoy.

Fresh X: Radiohead's Thom Yorke Release Surprise New Album

Thom Yorke is a sly guy. Last week he was teasing us by posting a short video of mysterious, white vinyl on a turntable. This led many to speculate that a new Radiohead album was in the cards.

That isn't what was in the cards. The cards of the day and Thom Yorke say it's time for a new Thom Yorke solo album. It's called "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes" and it's available via Bit Torrent here. Thom is nice enough to give a taste of the album for free with the first track, "A Brain in a Bottle" with accompanying video as a free download. For a mere $6 you can get all 8 of the tracks.

Go forth and enjoy all the bloops, beeps and melodic moans.
