#MusicMonday – Songs in 140 Characters (Or Less)
“It is my ambition to say in ten sentences; what others say in a whole book.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche
Another installment of the week’s assorted listening, comin’ atcha………
MP3: The Qualia – Station Wagons
Nostalgiac electronic indie-rock with a nod to the ’80’s & a dash of Molko/Corgan in the vocals. Engaging music tailor made for flashbacks.
MP3: Apteka – Traitors
True to last EP, swirling guitars remain with a distinct Perry Farrell hit to the singing. A worthy dose of shoe staring follow up.
Beat Radio – Golden Age (download free here)
Latest of Singles 2010 is a call to give our dreams our all, soundtracked by pulsing electronics & stuttering percussion. Another strong addition.
Portugal. The Man – Dead Dog (free download below)
Gloriously nonchalant ode to a public house, replete with spacey effects, hazy vocals, & simple but memorable beat. Effortlessly excellent.
MP3: Cast Spells – Pioneer Scalps
Sunny, stripped down tune with a distinct beach day feel,vaguely reminiscent of The Magic Numbers in places. Partially removes winter blues.
