Nov 14 2010, 1:45 di iouemptywaveshey guys. i was just thinking....people should listen to better music. there are tons of crappy rap and pop songs swarming the media these days. i wishwishwish so badly that movies, tv shows, iTunes, etc. would promote music that you know, doesn't suck.
here is some music that is awesome. you should check it out.
1. Camera Obscura - My Maudlin Career
I love them. The lead singer, Tracy Ann Campbell, has such a charming, sad, Scottish voice and it makes my heart cry. These are total rainy day songs and I lovelovelove it.
Favorite Song: James
2. Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles
Don't even try to compare #1 and #2 because they are nothing alike. I realize that this is a HUGE jump in genres but Crystal Castles is amazing. I love it because it's such heavy techno and you cannot, even if you try, understand what Alice Glass is saying. Looking up the lyrics for some of these songs (to see what people think she's singing) is quite hilarious.
Favorite Song: Untrust Us
tied with my other Favorite: Crimewave

Dic 13 2009, 0:57 di likecrocodilesPresented in alphabetical order, because with this many tracks it's impossible to rank them.
1. Juanes - A Dios Le Pido
If you're a Spanish teacher, this song is great for teaching the subjunctive. It's also Juanes' best song.
2. Kaki King - Air And Kilometers
Kaki King manages to wring an incredible amount of emotion out of her guitar. The breakdown about a minute in is great.
3. LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends
Surprisingly, the repetition of the keyboard line for 7 minutes doesn't get tiring, but just adds to the melancholic punch of the lyrics: "You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan, and the next five years trying to be with your friends again."
4. Yeasayer - Ambling Alp
It's got a great hook and appealing vocals, but it's the complexity of this song that brings it up a notch: the intricate bassline, the synth run at the end, the drums that anchor the rhythm.
5. Thom Yorke - Analyse
Deceptively simple and terribly affecting.
6. Porcupine Tree - Anesthetize
Ago 16 2009, 3:24 di pessimysticaFor about the past 30 years in alternative rock, new-wave, post-punk, goth rock, grunge, indie, & other similar genres, the following are many of my personal favorite basslines to play along to. I have included songs that helped me learn how to play the bass (in the mid 90s), songs that i personally tabbed out for myself & an online page I had up for many years (RIP, Geocities - message me if you want the tab for the linked tracks &/or with the play icon), & songs i keep coming back to to either play along or just enjoy the bass blasting thru my speakers. Sure, there could be many more, but these are specifically ones that I can play & have listened to constantly... so they are, for the most part, not exceedingly difficult, but many are very fun! I even left some of the easy ones for variety... so hopefully anyone who sees this, particularly those that play bass guitar, will find some that they enjoy as much as i have :) Also, feel free to post any of your personal favorites below that could fit this list. …
Gen 14 2009, 18:19 di rebeccapope96the cart was red
and the wheels were brown
something was said
and they all fell down
something must be said in this instance
tragic little incident that we can't fix
and i thought to myself
what metaphor could this stand for
what could it possibly mean
but meaning is what breed of value
the kind you bow to
or the type you like to breathe
but breeds have anomalies too
three leaves of the clover
what of the fourth should you find it
lucky few stay sober

Jimmy Eat World Day. The Middle
Baz Luhrmann: Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)
My friend Ken played this song for me. Life lessons.
Justice Day. Phantom Pt.II (Soulwax Remix)
Gorillaz Day. DARE
One of the best songs by Gorillaz.
The Unicorns: Unknown Title
For reasons a bit unknown I had "hearted" this song on the 6th of Nov, so for that it qualifies to be the song of the day. Does not sound too bad.
Cut Copy Day. Feel the Love
Feel the Love!!!!
Broken Social Scene Day. Stars and Sons
One of the best tracks by Broken Social Scene.
Metric: Combat Baby
Combat baby, combat. HAHA. A fighting song. Makes me want to wrestle.
Lug 23 2008, 5:37 di capitalchI think college was the best time to discover music for me and probably a lot of other people. Before I ever knew about blogs or anything like that, I used the university radio station (The Blaze) and music store (Hoodlums). Looking back, there were so many songs I love to this day. By the way, Hoodlums closed because of flood damage and I miss it. Some of these songs I woke up to every morning because my alarm clock was The Blaze. I also watched MTVU every single day my freshman and sophomore year. My freshman year (in 2004), I turned 18 and there was a heated political atmosphere which is also reflected in the music. I miss those days! Anyway, here are a bunch of songs semi in order from when I remember hearing them.
The Postal Service: The District Sleeps Alone Tonight
Goldfrapp: Number 1
The Caesars: Jerk It Out
The Dandy Warhols: We Used to Be Friends
Augustana: Stars and Boulevards
Aqualung: Brighter Than Sunshine
Sondre Lerche: Two Way Monologue
Badly Drawn Boy: Year of the Rat
