You Are my Muse…

Oct 13, 2010

So, I’m not sure how I haven’t gotten around to at least mentioning this on my blog, but holy crap.

I’ve knocked one more band off my “OMG, I TOTALLY, SRSLY, HAFTA SEE THEM” list. And, as you may surmise from the title, that band is Muse.

It was, as to be expected, truly spectacular. Probably one of the best concerts I’ve seen in my life. Incredible, to say the least.

Torpeedoh – Buckwild

Jul 27, 2009

A friend of mine recently decided to take the plunge and release his latest album of awesome mashups online for free. If you’re unaware what mashups are, Wikipedia has you covered:

A mashup, bootleg or blend (also mash up and mash-up) is a song or composition created by blending two or more songs, usually by overlaying the vocal track of one song seamlessly over the music track of another.

It’s some really awesome stuff, and definitely worth a look into. Click the image to go to the download page:

NPR’s Best Music of ’09 (So Far)

Jul 26, 2009

Just stumbled upon this list of NPR’s “Best Songs (so far) of 2009”, as voted on by its listeners. While the list is distinctly indie / folk (though, does that really surprise you from NPR?), it’s not too bad.

NPR listeners cast thousands of votes for the year’s best music (so far) and kept the race tight. In the end, Animal Collective edged out every other artist for both Best Album and Best Song. Artists like Grizzly Bear, The Decemberists and Neko Case weren’t far behind. One thing was clear: that 2009 has been one of the strongest years for new music in recent memory.

In addition to being an awesome candy substance, it’s also the title of this sweet AMV I found:

Set to “Candy Pop” by Heartsdale ft. Soul’d Out. What I found out most impressive about the music (besides the sweet beat) was the mix of Japanese and English from a Japanese group without sounding Engrishy. The video is also really well done and set to Haruhi! Definitely one of the best AMVs I’ve seen. The weird silence around 0:45 is actually part of the song.

And I realize it’s somewhat old, but I just stumbled on it and loved it, so I thought I’d poast.

Lots ‘o Cool Mashups

Jul 22, 2009

This one comes from Overdub, and features Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” and Radiohead’s “15 Step”.

Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit Up

Jul 19, 2009

This is probably one of the coolest mashups I’ve seen in a while. Rick Astley v. Nirvana. Supremely awesome.

Pendulum @ Gastonbury

Jul 13, 2009

So, I’ll be honest. I’ve never really looked into Pendulum before (I’ve heard them mentioned among certain circles, but never really listened).

After this video, though, I might have to go get their two LPs:

Oh yeah… “This video does contain strobe lighting!”

Guitar Weeping

Smallest drumset Mike Portnoy will ever play. BRB guys, recovering from awesome.

New Strings

Jun 23, 2009

God, new guitar strings are so awesome.

I must remind myself to replace said strings more often.

(Yes, this is somewhat of a cop-out post, but I have a “real” one coming up tomorrow. :D )
