Well now. This is pretty. Owen does a pretty stand up job of taking an already great Against Me! song and making it his own.
He is doing a whole album. It’s called Other People’e Songs, which is just perfect. Listen and love below.
Want to feel better about life? Want to start your Friday off right? Well do we have a song for you.
This song by the – er – interestingly named Big Data will get your feet moving back and forth with the help of White Sea’s kicking vocals.
Big Data, who has some issues with modern day technology, has some more songs worth spending some alone time with. I linked to his Soundcloud page above.
So pardon me if something I loved is lost, but since when does Baths (or simply Will) write one night stand jams written as if he did not care? This man cared too much. Just listen to Plea. Remember the power behind, “Because we are still not valid”
(If you not heard his daytrotter sessions you should go find those)
“Forgot to thank you for your love whatever you name was.” Damn, that’s cold.
Of course the beats are still there. The drum machine, sprinkled with all the right extras, still hit home like only Baths could. It’s still relentlessly catchy even if it’s lost some of it’s wide eye romanticism.
Well isn’t this a peach?
I can say that I would irrationally love any song with Tegan and Sara featured. Ever since I heard those lovely ladies serenade the world with Living Room I have been a fanboy. But it’s the combination of Night Terrors and Tegan and Sara that make this song tick.
The song hits home as two close co-workers decided to leave today. So as I sit and weep at their departure I am just hitting replay on this beauty. Think Michael in that episode of the office except I am listening to the whole song. Save me Tegan. Save me Sara. Night Terror have an album coming out though! Learn more here.
Remember when we used to publish on the regular? Those were fun days. But this song by HAERTS (such an annoying name to say, type) is pretty great. It’s all loopy and groovy in the right places. Big meaningful drums and sex undertone vocals. Wait till the end where snapping fingers and overlapped vocals take over your life.
Hello Bon Iver? Is that you?
No. Just someone that has the same viciously dark, mysterious vocal tones and lyrics. Well count me in. It might not have been recorded in a lonely cold cabin, but it’s still as pleasant on the ears as you can get. Just try and imagine it’s the dead of winter and the middle of summer.
Magic Man are like a pet tiger. You get this baby tiger when it’s young and adorable. The size of a puppy. You learn to love it. Grow with it. But in the back of head you know this thing is going to become a full sized tiger at some point and it may or may not want to eat you. So you love, but you also fear.
Magic Man have risen from a small internet sensation to a full blown loved band. They have tons of real, non-internet fans. I am sure they have groupies. Tour buses soon. I am sure a sold out House of Blues awaits them. And they deserve their future. If their new album, which drops on July 8th, contains more jams like the one above than they deserve to play in front of huge crowds. It was nice having them as a pet tiger, but I am scared to lose them as a full grown tiger. Soon they will be eating humans. That analogy came apart at the end.
