Stuff the Capitalist (aka KD) Likes: The Goldfinger Channel on Pandora...

Who am I?  Who cares?  Good questions.  It's my site, so I'm going to tap into a Friday once in a awhile by telling you more about who I am - via a "Stuff I Like" series.  Nothing too serious, just exploring the micro-niche that resides at the base of all of our lives.  Potshots encouraged in the comments.

I like Pandora. Big deal.  So do all of you with an iPhone.

More specifically, I like the GoldFinger channel on Pandora.  Not specifically because of Goldfinger, although I like them a lot.  Who can forget their classic cover of 99 Red Ballons?  See the video below (email subscribers, click through):

Nice.  But the real power of Pandora is that it doesn't let you just listen to what you want.  It's stretches Album-ruin-jonnys-bar-mitzvah your horizons a bit by making recommendations on what you might like if you like Goldfinger.

I added Goldfinger to my Pandora stream after eating dinner with some smart HR folks in the South/South-Midwest this week.  One of them told me to add the Neon Trees.  Good advice.  (shout out - hi team!)

So I start listening to the Goldfinger channel, and I get introduced to about 5 bands like them, including a classic cover band called "Me First and the Gimme Gimmes".

You don't get that from a service that sucks.  Pandora gives me what I want, then diversifies me.  

BTW, the CD cover that I saw from the Gimme Gimmes was "Ruin Jonny's Bar Mitzvah".  Sold.  And yes, that's one of the Foo Fighter's guitarists that contributes to the Gimme Gimmes.

I'm KD, and I like the Goldfinger channel on Pandora.

Tell me what I should add on Pandora in the comments...

You're way cooler than I am but I'll suggest Vampire Weekend. I love Pandora for the same reasons you do. I've discovered stuff I never would have found otherwise.


YES! Ben and I were at a concert on Sunday night and Superman came on between sets. It really made me want to play some Tony Hawk on the N64.


Side note: The Bosstones will be in ATL next weekend!


To answer the question - Love these on a run...

Ted Leo
The Fratellis
The Killers


LOVE Me First and the Gimme Gimmes! Try Flogging Molly, Reel Big Fish, Drop Kick Murphys, Buck O Nine (personal SoCal fave), Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers (different flavor than the rest; so much fun to see in concert!).


The RATM channel on Pandora introduced me to Rise Against, whom I now worship with practically religious fervor (including having their logo tattooed on my leg).
