AAAAHHHHH!!!! I WENT TO SAN FRANCISCO THIS WEEKEND AND THEN STARTED A NEW JOB AND HAVE HAD NO TIME TO BLOG!!!! sorry.
But did I still listen to music? Hell Yeah. Let's FINALLY get started.
WET- I Don't Wanna Be Your Girl
PAPA- Tender MadnessI can't believe how much I love every song on this album! I also can't believe that I didn't go see them when they were doing their residency. IDIOT. But that is a constant story in LA. It has a slight National feel, not going to lie, but this definitely has their own flavor. I think it's the deepness of his voice and the drumming pattern on certain songs. The constant theme I picked on is yearning. Which is a great emotion to build quality love lorn songs with if I do say so myself! Favorite tracks include: Put Me To Work, Young Rut I Am The Lion King, Tender Madness and my top pick, If You're My Girl Then I'm Your Man. Which is ironic, since one of my singles this week is the complete opposite. I wish the Hood Internet would mash up these two songs! Geez, I think I just listed half the album.
Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr- The Speed Of Things
If you ever get a chance to see these guys in a small venue, highly recommended. Let's just say they take some cues from the Flaming Lips and there is usually bubbles, balloons and electric light up body suits. Fun and poppy, this album is an easy listen that would be great for that Sunday morning while you cook breakfast and have coffee. Favorite Tracks: Hiding, Don't Tell Me, Gloria.
Few things about this:
1. I love the intimacy of this video. How by them touching you flash through the cycle of their what their entire relationship would be in these tiny little moments and they walk away.
2. The director really has a thing for stedicam spinning shots. It made me laugh because if you ever see what it looks like filming those types of shots for that fairy tale whirlwind moment like I have, it's ridiculous. I bet the camera operator fell and ran into a bunch of shit in that apartment. Lots of takes, just saying, but it looks awesome at the end of the day. PAY OFF!
3. uh oh BOOBIES!
4. She is REALLY mad at him for wearing that black turtleneck.
5. OH OH! He's the guitarist for the Strokes!
6.Great song. Great Album Listen HERE
