The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Take Five (1961) Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, Joe Morello and Gene Wright. A fantastic song!
Yallz should prolly check out theNEWblog for its seemingly relevent content. The blog covers everything from film, fashion, art, music etc. So take a gander. The video is know a little old but still interesting. It is just a collection of “what’s hot” right now.. enjoi
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?
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:
Empire Of The Sun are one of those bands from Australia that are proving there are no “bad” music coming from the land down under. Empire Of The Sun consist of Nick Littlemore of Pnau and Luke Steele of The Sleepy Jackson. Who knows I could be hatted for this reference but Empire Of The Sun kind of reminds me of a Australian MGMT in a with their easy listening pop psychedelia. Many people have been claiming that the remix of Walking On A Dream by Sam La More (Sam Littlemore the brother of Nick Littlemore) is the best rmx of the song. While it is good, my vote goes with VanShe Tech remix. Empire Of The Suns debut album is currently available on iTunes - watch the video and when you see the album link click it and it will talk you to the iTunes store.
The new song by The Killers does not suck, it is just as authentic and majestic a band can get. Noting The Killers are getting weirder and more obscure their music keeps raising the bar for the fusion between Indie Rock and Alternative music. Human starts off with similarities to U2 and blends into a more familiar sound of When You Were Young but making sure that they are not just banking of the sound and success of their previous hit. I found Human also shares similarities with the Toronto group Put The Rifle Down. Aside from the roaming majestic animals I am in awe of Brandon Flowers feather vest… like what? A-mazing. The Killers new album Day & Age is being released November 25, 2008.
I’ve been playing around with new music video and Overlay.TV’s interactive features for online video. That’s how I addeed all the dynamic content, text and links into the videos. Help the artists out and link to where you can buy their albums/mp3’s online. Overlay.TV allows you to link through the videos you post to itunes/beatport/amazon etc. YE!
Matt and Kim are an infused indie pop duo from Brooklyn with raw and catchy tunes. Their track Yea Yeah which really allowed them to take off came out over a year ago and they have done it again with the newly released Daylight single [video above]. I first say Matt and Kim in Toronto last summer when they played at Mod Club and quickly realized that they are probably the happiest people I have ever seen. Their whole set both of them had a huge smile across their faces and were authentically loving life being super fun and just playing their music. If you want proof if this claim just watch their new video for Daylight or their Yea Yeah video, happiest people ever!
Matt and Kim have an upcoming tour and perfectly enough they are coming to Ottawa again playing at Mavericks. I am there and so should you! If your hitting it let me know! Pick up your tickets at EndHits YE!
