This weekend, I realized a few things. Main one being, I am spending far too much time realizing all these pointless things. So I will come back to them at a later stage, and plough on with a few songs. A bucket load of music to choose from this week as well… enough talk, more music!!!
Song 1: Home – Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros
Johnny Cash backed up by the Arcade Fire. Kind of. Has me going all day.
Random Useless Fact: No one in the band is called Edward Sharpe! Hilarious.
Song 2: Finn Bikkjen – Casiokids
I seem to have a thing for bands whose lyrics I can’t understand. Sigur Ros spring to mind. But with an electro-pop twist.
R. U. F: They’re from Norway. Obviously.
Song 3: Surprise Hotel – Fool’s Gold
Initially, I didn’t really like this song. However, it soon grew on me. I think. Hints of Vampire Weekend, but a lot more tribal (if that’s the correct term).
R. U. F: They are singing in… Hebrew! Just realized, another band with lyrics I am clueless about.
Song 4: Rome (Neighbors Feat. Devendra Banhart) – Phoenix
I am a big fan of remixes. However, if a song is remixed by a whole load of different people, it wears a bit thin. When a whole album is then remixed by endless amounts of people, it is waaay too much. Then I heard this remix.
R. U. F: Devendra Banhart played his first show in a church at a gay wedding. Very random. Very useless.
Song 5: Summertime – Girls
Last song, another new album, another one of a slow burner. Their debut album is aptly named ‘Album’.
R. U. F: The lead singer used to be a member of a cult, the Children of God.
Feel free to throw some new names into the hat, the more the merrier!
