5 of the Now

  • The Chemical Brothers - The Salmon Dance The Chemical Brothers - We Are the Night - The Salmon Dance This was an instant favorite from the new album. It's wacky but a good tune. The video is great, and kids love it, which makes it nice that they edited the track for the video. Here's the YouTube copy. If you like it, I suggest you pick it up from the iTunes store.

  • Scissor Sisters - Take Your Mama Scissor Sisters - Scissor Sisters - Take Your MamaI was jamming to this the other day and realized I haven't had any Scissor Sisters in the 5otn. This 30 second preview doesn't really capture the fun and energy of the track. This is a great album.

  • The Crystal Method - Cherry Twist The Crystal Method - Vegas - Cherry Twist I had the good fortune of seeing the Method live, twice, back in '97 and '98. They've just released a deluxe edition of their album Vegas to celebrate its 10th anniversary. It really is one of the great electronic dance music albums. Cherry Twist didn't see as much success as some of the other tracks on the album, but I especially enjoyed it live.

  • Moby - South Side (Hybrid's Dishing Pump Remix) Chem Bros, Crystal Method, Moby, and Hybrid. Is it the late 90s? Gwen Stefani helps Moby take it up a notch and then Hybrid knocks it out of the park. I'm a sucker for strings in electronic music.

  • Adam Freeland - Silverlake Pills Adam Freeland - Silverlake Pills - Silverlake Pills Rockin

Good stuff, although I'll pass on any Scissor Sisters stuff.

I'm going have to dig for somewhere to pick up the Moby track though.
