OBSESSIVE COMPULSIONS: FILTER’s Weekly Picks
By Staff on December 17, 2012
FILTER likes music. There's no hiding it. We also like our own opinions a whole bunch, so once a week we give the masses a fleeting glimpse into our selective stereos and Internet browsers to let them see firsthand what fuels our endless devotion. We like to think of it as community service. We're selfless like that. So without further ado, here are the official, inarguable, objectively good FILTER Weekly Picks—providing everything from new LPs you should be spinning to the latest good-fer-you videos. Yeah, we're good at what we do:
Finally getting to see The Rolling Stones live and doing so from REALLY up close! -- Mike Bell
The Darkness -- "Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End)"
Why: Robots, lasers, fur vests, leather pants, double-kneck guitars, and so much tinsel and glitter...C'mon kids! Don't let the bells end. This was, is, and forever will be, perfect. -- Samantha Barnes
Townes Van Zandt -- Sunshine Boy: The Unheard Studio Sessions and Demos 1971-1972
Why: The greatest. -- Pat McGuire
Bob Dylan -- "It Must Be Santa"
Why: Because, DUH! Perfect song. Perfect video. Don't hate me. -- Wes Martin
My sister Julia (the parrot)
Why: After everything that has happened within the last few days, I am so thankful to have people I love close to me during this holiday season. Also I think this photo shows off some of our better dress up outfits (I'm in the middle). -- Bailey Pennick
