I hear new music almost every day from all over the place, but I don’t always feel like an entire album review is warranted. So I decided that I’ll post some of the songs that really stand out to me every week, new or old, doesn’t matter, just things I’m liking. I’ve decided to call it A Few More Beats – And Maybe, A New Sound. I borrowed this title from somewhere, and it’s up to one of you to figure it out. If you can tell me where I got this name, I’ll send you something rad and random in the mail, no matter where on earth you are. I’ve Googled the title and done a number of searches, so hopefully it’s not too easy!
Lon Chaney by Vetiver
Vetiver has a new album coming out called Thing of the Past, a cover album of old and rare songs. I probbaly could have written a review about this album, its really damn good, but this one song really stuck out to me. The song is a remake of a Garland Jeffreys song of the same name, and it’s absolutely haunting. Though it comes in at around four and half minutes, I don’t ever want this song to end, with it’s beautiful piano part and it’s moaning cello.
Chemtrails by Beck
Beck just the other day released this new song of his upcoming album Modern Guilt and it’s sounding really good. The song is called Chemtrails, and it’s kind of haunting as well. This new album is being produced by the unstoppable Dangermouse, and it’s clearly evident once you hear how layered and crisp everything sounds. This album is gonna be a definite purchase for me, I can’t wait to hear more.
I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You by Black Kids
I’m really excited about the Black Kids upcoming album, especially after hearing their first EP, The Wizard of Ahhhs. They kind of sound like a mixture between the Cure and The Go! Team, which means dance party forever. I dare you to try and not dance to this song, with all it’s awesome synths, guitar solos, and harmonizing.
