I’m not really what you would call a hipster, but I don’t always like what could be considered radio music. Here is my list of top 20 songs out of what is in the top 50 singles list on iTunes. Comment at the bottom and let me know what would be your choices. ENJOY!
I’m not the biggest fan of rap and hip-hop, but this song is catchy as hell! I was hesitant to check it out because it was sent as a spam message in my email, but I’m glad I did. This song would be a perfect addition to your party mix! Check out the video below to listen to “Popular” by Sinatti Pop, and tell me what you think. ENJOY!
First off, THANK YOU Will Ferrel and John C. Reilly! That has been one of the funniest movies in the past few years, and all the others y’all make are not far behind. BUT, this isn’t a movie blog. SO, I am here to give my list of the top 10 best vocalists in the post-hardcore/hardcore/screamo genre. Many of these artists have been made popular for their voices, and some may be just because their band rocks, I don’t know. All I know is, these guys can actually sing! Some of these guys are not with some of the bands listed as them being from. I am simply pointing out where the name/voice may be familiar from. ENJOY!
To all of you fans of Never Shout Never, it’s now time to get excited. For his new album, Christofer Drew is releasing a “Limited Edition Time Travel Lithograph + CD Bundle“. So now, not only can you be excited for the new album entitled, “Time Travel”, but you can also be pumped for some extra goodies.
Like the title states, this song is going to blow your mind! It’s 3:00 A.M. and I can’t sleep, so what do I do? I look for music, that’s what. I have never been more confused after finding this band! By confused I mean, ‘holy-crap-this-is-so-awesome-but-what-kind-of-person-would-think-of-this’ kind of confusion. Just think about this: the best way to describe this band is if you had a band like Panic At The Disco or Fall Out Boy, and you forced them to make a baby with Darude or the Benassi Bros. Yes, I am saying this is what the end product would be a scene – techno love spawn. Weird right? BUT, so good! This band is called, And Then There Were None, and I recommend you give them a listen. My favorite song by them is, “The Hospital“, but the video below is for their song, “Thank The Watchmaker” which is also a very good song. Check them out, it will be worth your time! ENJOY!
I absolutely hate that there are styles of music that are considered “mainstream”. For example, listen to the majority of songs on pop music stations, I can bet my life’s savings that 7/10 or 8/10 songs there will be some sort of electronic sound or some part with auto-tune. I’m no hipster, but I hate it when ‘artists’ such as Ke$ha and Lady Gaga are on the radio and making millions of dollars when there are more talented groups out there. There are bands/artists out there that have more talent in their little toe nail than in some popular artists’ entire bodies. That comment may seem like a bash on Ke$ha and Gaga, but it’s not an attack at them, it’s at the music industry today. To me, Lady Gaga is a genius; she doesn’t have much talent when it comes to singing, and I personally don’t know if she writes her own songs, BUT she is a marketing genius. She knows how to go out there and get her name permanently lodged in your brain. Basically all I’m saying is that the music industry / audience would recognize or at least give a chance to some of those groups out there that have the talent and/or are creating/recreating their genre. And that is all, there is my rant. Please feel free to reply and share your opinion here. To see what I’m talking about by terrible music being what is tearing up the radio waves and winning all the awards, click this video of Ke$ha live.
Along with their amazing new album, Incubus has a new video for one of their new songs, “Adolescents”. Some people may consider videos like this to be boring because it’s just a film of the band playing the song, but in this case I disagree. This video is, like the title state, “simple but amazing”. The black and white film style is a beautiful choice for this group because to me it seems to correlate with their ‘mellow sound’. Later in the video there are some slow motion breaks and other dramatic effects that make an amazing video out of what some may call, boring. click for more. ENJOY!
