I recently just discovered this artist called “Zomby“. He is siiiickk. It is hard for me to describe his music. To me his music has a 90’s dance feel to it with 8-bit….kinda like Crystal Castles…there is also some Flying Lotus style in it. Anyways what draws me to his music is how random and off beat the songs are. Its almost unpleasant sometimes because I am trying to make out the beat and rhythm but overall I keep listening. I’m addicted to it and I don’t know why. I respect Zomby because his music uses different notes and there is so much syncopation in it. I never know what to expect. I love it. Anyways here are two of his songs that I personally enjoy.
Zomby- Helter Skelter
Awwhh Cut Copy, I can never get enough of them. I have slowly realized that they have the best endings on their songs. For pretty much half of their songs, the endings are my favorite part. I always wish that they would have their ending beats more in their songs. Instead I get a 30 sec taste of it. Anyways Knightlife knows what I’m talking about!
Cut Copy- So Haunted(Knightlife End Edit)
Then Cut Copy has a great song called Strangers in the Wind. The end is my favorite part in that song too. I haven’t found anyone who remixed the end yet…:/ so I guess I will have to work on that!
But heres the original Strangers in the Wind.( Note the end beat….yesssssss)
p.s. I don’t know why there are images of random drunkness…..I was desperate for the song.
Some songs I listen to are so epic to me that time is in slow mode. Everything seems so simple and elegant. Moving with a steady pace….here nothing can go wrong….to me, this is it. This is life at its purest form.
Interpol-NYC (This song is so peaceful and flawless to me)
ha I even found a video thats in slow mode for the song….its fits well.
The Walkmen– We’ve Been Had ( I absolutely love the piano in this song. Reminds me of Ragtime music)
Oh I found this video someone made for the song…..the concept of the video fits really well with the song…
Recently I have been listening to this band a lot. My new soundtrack to my life. Anyways, their music is very simple and basic but at the same time hits and nails every song with the right notes. Did I mention the guitar is amazing? Since I am at work….and bored, I will have to post their songs through you tube vids.
While you’re at it….just get the whole CD.
Calvin lookin Pimp
My goodness, so I checked out the new Calvin Harris album, Ready for the Weekend……I’m speechless! I swear he never disappoints me. Each song is hit after hit after hit. I feel the album name was prefect for his songs. This is seriously my new CD for weekends. All I can say about the songs is they come at you with such force that it is impossible to ignore them. Calvin brings the fire!!!! Check this CD out and get bloooownnn.
Calvin Harris- Yeah Yeah Yeah La La La
Calvin Harris- Blue
Where does Empire of the Sun get their songs names from??? They are so random but it works because everything about them is. Empire of the Sun is a band that you learn to “like” and appreciate over time. When I first heard them it was offputting because I had never heard a style like theirs before. They are original and as time went by I started to enjoy almost every song. I appreciate the randomness of their music because its unique and intriguing. Nick Littlemore, a band member of Empire of the Sun also has an earlier existing group called Pnau. I have grown to appreciate Pnau as well and I hope to hear more music from these groups.
Empire of the Sun- Swordfish Hotkiss Night
Pnau- Wild Strawberries
I enjoy the song Cheerleader from Grizzly Bear and was curious if they had a video for the song. They didn’t but I found a video someone made for the song. The video fits very well with the song, however I seriously think the man in the video is Don Knotts….you know the awkward man who makes everyone laugh from the Andy Griffith Show. If it is him, where is the original video from??? If it is not him let me know. Just a side note if you are ever in for a good laugh I would recommend watching his movie The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.
