Bibio – Anything New

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

CRUNCHY GOODNESS! The intro to this amazing track is long and entrancing. British producer Bibio (Stephen Wilkinson) certainly has some talent. His music is influenced by the likes of Boards of Canada (haven’t listened to them enough to comment on this) and Daft Punk (this is evident in the last third of the song). I first heard this song on our local NPR station in LA during one of their bits and it’s stuck with me. Hopefully it sticks with you and I’ll gladly take any “thank yous” below. Enjoy.

OK Go – The Writing’s On The Wall

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Okay, so excuse the bandwagon post of this video. It’s just so freaking amazing! This is a band that puts a ton of time and thought into their music videos as well as their music. Because of videos like this and the personality they bring to their live shows, it’s easy to say that they are true entertainers! A welcome return from a band that truly inspires the mind through the images. The song itself is good and is radio ready, which (along with this video) will hopefully mean a revitalization of a great band many people may remember as the guys who danced on treadmills. Don’t remember that? Well you should probably click here. Enjoy, y’all.

Knox Hamilton – Work It Out

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

“I know, I know…” I cannot believe it has taken me this long to get back and post on here. What better day to get back to posting than my 2 year anniversary of this blog, though. So let’s get into a song we have all heard a little of but probably not the whole thing. This little number is a freaking gem by an outfit called Knox Hamilton. The chimes will haunt you and ring in your mind all day as you hum your neighbors into insanity. Choppy distorted guitars and sustained synth also make this an extremely dreamy track and they totally nail it on this one. You also have to get behind a band that is personal with its fans. They have personally responded to just about every comment on this video. Cool bros, cool song, what else could you want.

HAERTS – All the Days

Friday, November 1st, 2013

In a world full of melodies that haunt us throughout our days, it’s nice to see some bands strive for the dissonance that intrigues us and leaves us wanting more anyway! This is such a song that does just that. The haunting beauty of this song is eclipsed by the words “Leaving me would leave me free to reach above now.” A song about moving on; the perfect emotion to have with the meaningless songs that surround us and don’t challenge us in the least to understand what is truly behind it. Get lost in the entrancing drums of this song and forget the past as we all move forward.

Liars – #1 Against the Rush

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

This song is so beautiful. It’s so light and airy with nice, clean plucking throughout. The synth that comes in towards the middle is really fun and how it slips flat. This song is just so interesting so give it a couple listens and hear all the elements making it so ominous.
