They Only Look Scary: The Dead Weather

If there is one thing that we love here at Broke Ass HQ, its music. From Ashley’s post about the crushing on Natasha Khan, or the sweet, soulful sounds of Stu’s [and now my] obsession with Stax Records, we live for the music. Lucky for you, I have been working less on haikus and more on FREE MUSIC MIXES FOR YOU!

As a little offering to get some of you into some of my favorite music, I’ve compiled a mix of some of my all-time favorite summer jams and some new ones to get hip to. There is a song from the new Jack White/Alison Mosshart genius pairing project, The Dead Weather, a new jam from Brody Dalle’s dance-tastic new side project Spinnerette, as well as a few surprises and of-the-moment favorites that many of my friends would probably shrink back in shock from. But music is music and there is no better time for pop music than summer. So rage, rock, relax and rejoice to the sounds offered up by me, for FREE, to you. Let us know what you think '” there might possibly be more mixes to come from some of our contributors throughout the summer!*

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]

      Hey Liz-

      Sorry about that. I guess when it was set up we didn’t realize that only 10 downloads were allowed. We will try to remedy that. Thanks for hollering.
