Mood Music: The Gods Themselves - "Marilyn Monroe"

Of the numerous subsects of punk music, art and dance punk have got to be some of the more fun and fashionably viable for those that choose dapperness over chaos. And though dance punk had a much bigger moment in time earlier in the 2000s, The Gods Themselves rock the genre like nobody's business. Their incredibly catchy tunes and pristine glam style have landed them on more than just the musical stage, but on tv screens as well. 

Their show with Cindy Wilson of The B-52's wasn't that long ago, they've also been featured on Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, showing off their utter charm as individuals and their chemistry as a unit. 

Get into one of their latest tracks "Marilyn Monroe" below, and be sure to catch their next show on 3.02 with Motopony and Hotels at the Tractor Tavern.

   

Motopony Play Neumo's July 7th

Seattle quintet Motopony, who just released their self-titled debut last month, will headline a show at Neumo’s on July 7th. They will play with two other Emerald City locals, Smokey Brights and Cumulus. Motopony’s sound is a winning combination of Grateful Dead-esque folk music and the funky and soulful voice of frontman Daniel Blue. Listen to one of the album’s highlights, “Seer,” below. - Josh Johnson
