So, I discovered Adam Emond, who takes existing songs and cuts out every other beat. The results are pretty wacky.
I’m kinda mixed on this track to be honest. It’s a fun little doom surf track, but it lacks the heavy drive of something like Hipster Shakes or the drawn out intensity of a Fever Breaks. I like it, I look forward to seeing it live, but I worry BPF’s best days are behind them.
When looking up bands for a music festival that I really want to go to at the beginning of may (though I’m not sure I’ll be able to), I found the band “Spanish Love Songs” and they are really good. They are also in a recent trend that I found of bands such as Off With Their Heads or The Menzingers, who sing really kick-ass songs about deeply depressing shit.
Still one of the best music videos ever:
I’m very grateful for the existence of ColorsXStudios
I’m a BIG fan of The Correspondents lately.
Auralnauts came up with a clever idea: Turn YouTube’s ContentID system into a charity. They’ve produced an original album that they expect you to freely download or purchase (links in description), then upload to your own channel. If/When YT catches it, all profits from monetization will go directly to the Inner City Arts charity.
Oh man, The Correspondents was my jam a few years ago. And their old school approach to practical effects in videos is awesome.
New track from Auralnauts!
I’ve been drifting through japanese music videos. Why has nobody told me there was a colab between Asian Kung-Fu Generation and Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra?
New Chemical Brothers album. They’re actually playing Forest Hills Stadium in August. I’m going to see Weird Al there, but I don’t think I need to see Chemical Brothers Live.
Some good tracks on this new album, though.
I dig the new Chembros album.
This is easily my favorite track:
I’ve been wicked into Post-Rock lately.
I’m pretty sure Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven is going to be one of my Desert Island Discs if I every make such a list:
Been getting into Russian punk/alt rock and these guys are a blast
One of the modern synthpop bands I keep an ear out for has a new video out:
Just loving the synth lines on this, and the video, and the vocals, and just all of it.
