Kraftwerk's 'Numbers' Is The Greatest Breakdancing Song Of All Time

Can you honestly deny this?  If you have never heard this jam, then possibly, but it's damn near impossible otherwise.  The countdown at the front of the song is fair warning, what come next is pure energy.  The beat, the arpeggiated analog synth line, the continued counting in various languages; you have to move!  And this is not just for breakdancing.  My old bones still have to move whenever I hear these four Germans paving the way for electro.  Just watch the video below.  If this doesn't do something to your soul, then we probably can't be friends.  Dance folks, DANCE!

elephone's library is available for licensing!

Both of elephone's full length albums are now available for licensing!  

The band grew out of a longtime friendship between Ryan Lambert (a former actor - Kids Inc., The Monster Squad) and Terry Ashkinos. While living in Los Angeles, Ryan and Terry were in separate punk and indie bands who frequently shared the stage touring across the country. Terry moved to San Francisco in 1998 and the pair began writing songs together, collaborating over a distance. Over time they realized that they may be on to something – so in 2003 Ryan decided to move to San Francisco to pursue a new band with Terry, and elephone was born.

What happened to this week?

It certainly hasn't been slow!  We have some good news on the way, potential good news on the way, and this from The Revue!

"The Society of Rockets are from San Francisco and they recently started sharing tracks on their Soundcloud account. 

“Telescopic Man” is about everyone wanting to be bigger than who they really are. The track reminds of early 60s rock and includes some disco vibes throughout.

“Telescopic Man” is from a collection of EPs that was supposed to released on an album titled Populuxe. The Society of Rockets now have new material with their upcoming release titled Plutonium Blues."

Super cool!  They should probably be in films, just saying, music supes.
