Needed something to help me relax today, and this Blind Pilot track hit the nail on the head. Reminds me a bit of one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Sondre Lerche. Check it out…
I had never heard of the The Rest, but I’m glad their upcoming sophomore release, Everyone All At Once, found it’s way to my inbox. An album composed of dreamy and melancholic pop songs, perfectly laced with just the right amount of falsetto, you float from song to song, unable to ignore the hypnotizing effect it has on you. Then, in an instant, it’s all over. Leaving you with that yearning feeling you get when you have been abruptly woken from a great dream that has seamlessly carried you through the night. Fortunately, once you’ve stepped out of the dream world, there is a repeat button.
Enfant Terrible: a French term for a child who is terrifyingly candid by saying embarrassing things to adults, especially parents. The Webster’s Dictionary also defines an enfant terrible as an unusually successful person who is strikingly unorthodox, innovative, and/or avant-garde.
What would we do without Wikipedia?
With songs chock-full of blips and bleeps, and the occasional solo that sounds like a child with ADD, who has yet to learn the meaning of the mute button on their Game Boy, I suppose you could call We Are Enfant Terrible avant-garde. Sound a little too much? Layer the song with an awesome synth baseline and some 80′s kick drums, and you barely even notice because your so busy two-stepping around the house. So be on the lookout, it wouldn’t suprise me one bit if these guys ended up on a Kitsuné compilation….the sound is right up their alley.
es, I do like Lily Allen, and I’m not afraid to admit it. What’s not to love about a saucy English lass cursing over a bubbly pop tune.
So today is the official release date of Lily’s single “The Fear”, off her upcoming album It’s Not Me, It’s You, even though it’s been floating around for some time now. It’s your average pop song, but like most of the time with her….it’s her razor sharp lyrics that make it all the more enjoyable.
Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars and passing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
and that’s what makes my life so f***ing fantastic
And I am a weapon of massive consumption
and its not my fault it’s how I’m programed to function
Thanks go to Fluxblog for the track.
Still a huge fan of The Bird and The Bee, I have been patiently awaiting their sophomore album, Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future, which is due out Jan. 27th. Continuing to keep things fresh, this time around they’ve managed to produce tracks that are much more danceable and funky, that is to say, as much as you can being signed to Blue Note. Sticking to their guns, they still have their trademark sound of the 60′s, so it’s guaranteed to be another great listen…
