There are so many great Bush videos circulating the Internet.
I like this one here.
Its amazing where people discover new music these days.
I seem to keep hearing good tunes in commercials. I’ve gotta give credit to some amazing people working in the advertising industry. They’ve helped launch successful music careers for musicians who deserve the attention.
Remember a Sony BRAVIA (televisions) commercial where 250,000 multi-coloured ‘superballs’ were released down two steep streets in San Francisco. Visually stunning commercial, nice piece.
‘One More Time’ was the first some I heard from The French Kicks.
Like the Walkmen (who the band shared a label with and toured together), this band originally came from from Washington, D.C. but really started their sound in New York. Everywhere I look on the web, everyone used the same line to describe them “post-punk aggression and mod melodies and harmonies”. I would say take the Strokes, slow them down a bit, and warm their guitar sound. Then add romantic vocals.
Great live band as well. On two occasions I witnessed lead singer Nick Stumpf command a room with confidence. Like the crowd wasn’t even there.
I’m a big fan of the song ‘Only So Long‘ which is on their myspace page. Diggin deeper? Head to the video section of their website, check out this great slo-mo video for ‘The Trial of the Century’.
Yeah, you come to mind…
Many thanks to whoever put together this page.
I’ve tried clicking on all the phrases from Napoleon Dynamite, but I find myself stuck on ‘Tina come get some ham’…
Went to see a band called the Juan Maclean on Monday night. It was one of two things that got me to listen to this band. Either their crazy and hypnotic album cover or the fact that they’ve consistent stayed on the Canadian campus radio charts for the better half of last year.
What do they sound like? Live-electro-house-dance-beats with vocoders. Some songs reminded me of the songs which I remember from the Revenge of the Nerds soundtrack. Also, I really like to see people playing an instrument called the theremin.
Check out the track ‘Tito’s Way‘ on the myspace page.
Strongest track I think is ‘Give Me Every Little Thing’, find it on their homepage under ‘Video’.
So I found this old Sailor’s hat at Value Village today. I gotta say, it fits very well. Kind of makes me feel more worldly.
But I keep getting this suspicion that the ghost of some old Sea Dog (or alley Captain) is going to take over my brain and the writing. Someone warn me if I start referencing bands as being too “Bilgy” or worthly of tossing “Cackle Fruit”.
The band has a nice sound (down-tempo electronic). I love this track “Wizard Of Ahhhs“. There’s a great build there.
