Music to Make Love to Your (Hipster) Old Lady By
Here's a quick preview of our SIRIUS Blog Radio show this week, which will air Wednesday night at 10 Eastern. We cribbed the title from Lovage's genius 2001 release, and the entire episode will feature music appropriate for "setting the mood," so to speak.
For the first preview track, I turned to the expert on these matters, Moka. Her "bedroom" playlists have been helping bloggers hook it up since 2005. She insists that Lindstrom & Prince Thomas' new self-titled LP is ideal for setting the mood, and who the hell am I to argue? This track definitely has an Air vibe to it:

For those of you who will be flying solo (if you know what I'm saying), don't worry, I've got you covered too. This Serge Gainsbourg cover, which features Mrs. Jack White, should be just as effective as that worn copy of Barely Legal or your "1 Night in Paris" bootleg:
Cat Power I Love You (feat. Karen Elson) mp3
Muzzle of Bees recently reported on Hatebeak, a metal band whose lead singer is a freaking parrot. We tracked down the mp3, and I can safely say, without hesitation, that this is the absolute worst thing I have ever heard...
Hatebeak God of Empty Nest mp3
...Until I heard this. Reportedly, Hatebeak will be releasing a split with (and I'm not making this up) Caninus, a band fronted by two pitbulls. Where's PETA when you need them?
Caninus Human Rawhide mp3
