I wish I was more in touch with 2011 music, so I’m not, so instead you get old stuff.
Anyway, The Modern Lovers’s self-titled debut is a bloody great album. It’s basically Velvet Underground inspired garage rock / proto-punk with a unique flare. If you haven’t listened to it already, go do so. Now. It’s awesome.
Here’s a great album by little known hardcore punk band Shoulder. It takes a lot of great qualities from previous bands like Hüsker Dü and just does the music really well. There’s not too much to say about it, but if you enjoy hardcore, definitely check this one out.
I’ve had this album sitting around for quite some time on iTunes but never got around to checking it out. Over the last few days, I’ve had to listen to it over and over. It’s a great album that is extremely consistent, with even the worst songs having some merit. The country label is a bit off-putting, but it’s a lot closer to alt-country and consists of influences from many different genres.
So yeah. Sky and the Ocean by Volebeats. Check it out.
Okay, so I’ve decided to start Tumblring (sp?) again. Instead of posting random songs with absolutely no context like before, I’m going to try following this-isnt-music's approach to posting which involves psuedo-reviewing the music (or at least giving an opinion about it,) something that for some reason didn't cross my mind months ago. This style combines my love of reviewing music and short attention span very well.
And that’s about it. Hopefully this will be a success.
All I have is Battlefield Bad Company 2 (love this game) and I need some more, preferably FPSes. I’ve had my eyes on Bioshock 2 and Red Dead Redemption but I’m not sure what else is great. Anyone have some suggestions?
