The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Take Five (1961) Comments | Mar 25 2010
The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Take Five (1961) Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, Joe Morello and Gene Wright. A fantastic song!
Empire of the Sun just released the new video for Standing on the Shore. The video keeps up with all of their odd / amazing previous vids. Does anyone else feel that Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore of EPOTS look a lil’ like hobbits?
Does anyone else see the resemblance?
A relatively new project coming out of Toronto is Brothers, with over 73 Billion friends on myspace already will only bring great things with such exposure. It also makes you want to be a Brother as well so add them and be part of the fun! Their rough and catchy tunes keep me listening and their energetic and hard hitting riffs and dancey melodies keep me doin’ work. In accordance with the blurb taken from Brothers myspace I too always fell that the more instruments adding to the depth of the music creates interest making it more fun to write, preform and listen to. This is exactly what they have done all while managing to keep the Brother count at 3 members. For a reference on this check out Man Man and their video on Pitchfork.TV.
Below is a wonderful description of Brothers taken from their myspace:
I’ve always thought music needed to have as many guitars/pianos/harmoniums/hand claps/voices as physically possible, with never ending sonic layers. BROTHERS is a very standard three-piece rock outfit. I’ve always thought that a song needed an enormous amount of annoying time changes to keep it interesting. BROTHERS has only a few annoying time changes. I’ve always been too nervous and critical of my voice to sing in other bands. In BROTHERS, I am the lead singer.
I can’t wait to hear more from these Brothers and be able to make it to one of their shows. For now just sit tight and enjoy these courtesy MP3s.
Boxing day has passed,and hopefully peeps got some sick nasty sales…or maybe not. ONe thing that i did notice were the lineups to get into stores that were not even having boxing days sales such as AA and urban outfitters, i just didn’t get it. Does anyone know of anyone who waited 1/2 an hour get get into a sale-less store on boxing day? If so was it worth it?Just posting a mix of random songs there pretty good and could debatable be “holiday” themed??? Enjoy the best comic of the year above. Cheers
New Le Castle Vania Remix kicks off the holiday season with a remix of Rave Is King by Fukkk Off which evidently dropped today (fresh from ALT ). Just letting you know I still choose disco! On this note I love what Le Castle Vania did to Rave Is King with the heavier disco grooves, sick nasty. This is def. going up with his recent edit of Zero Machine which was released a while ago.
I’ve been kinda MIA this past month so hopefully this post will partially make up for it. I was finishing the last of exams and projects of my degree and now I am done. Feeling kinda empty here is a range of tracks that have gotten me through the past weeks day and night. The only thing missing from this post is the copious amounts of Vente coffees that I consumed…I don’t even want to begin to try and count. Anyways enjoy the music rollercoster of House, Ghetto, Crunk, Electronic, B-More and what ever else I threw in here. I understand its not the best practice to just list links to myspace pages for the mp3’s I’ve posted but quite frankly there’s to many artists for me to transcribe their history and beliefs to so lets get started:
