I love these guys.
I love these guys.
Found this guy on Busy P’s page, and I’ve got nowhere to let the guy live. So for now, I’ll let it stay here. At least until I have another listen.
So Me, Breakbot, and Busy P mix
Man, it’s been awhile and I know it. I hope deep down I’m not just writing this out of guilt over procrastination and laziness. I really just thought I’d kick off this balmy season of music with a little something something in scribbly to get the ball rolling.
June was a dry month for me and zee tunes and beats. After seeing a few consecutive bad shows, shows which I won’t name since I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade, I’ve been at a loss for words, motivation, and that exploration kick. I can’t tell you how many half-written posts, researched bands, and semi-juicy thoughts I’ve had that I haven’t felt compelled enough to finish or even start writing about.
Finally, they release this video. Ever since Kavinsky tweeted his excitement over this video, I’ve been on the prowl. Last week I even took the bait and fell into a trap, clicked through to the “video” only to find an image of a gross steak. Kudos on the secrecy and hype build up.
The video is not what I expected, though I didn’t know what to expect. It is a treat for the eyes, though. The way the images flow into one another goes perfectly with the style of music in my opinion. I love that guy moving his hand to the ticking clock and the girl bouncing off the music. Isn’t it crazy how someone can come up with visuals for music that no one else really thinks of, but when people watch it they see the perfect fit? This doesn’t always happen, of course, but it’s amazing to me that some people have the gift of imagination and creativity to visualize music in a way that no one else does.
I took the coastal drive down to LA this last weekend, and I only had one mixed CD to play. Just one for a whopping 10 hours total on the road! Naturally, it went on repeat. There were some fun tunes on there, but there was one that I refused to skip even after the repeat thing got quite old. Actually, I lied, there were two songs that really did it for me. The Knife’s You Make Me Like Charity was one of them, but the one I have in mind is Chromeo’s Way Too Much. With a simple yet cool sounding beat, I feel two major things: 1. I want to dance. Nothing crazy, just a cool, nonchalant, disco kind of sway. Maybe throw in some finger pointing if you know what I mean. 2. I should be driving down the road a la video game times with night lights passing me by and Dave 1 and P-Thugg performing in the scenery. Something Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road-esque. Can you picture it? I did and it made my night drive pretty damn exciting. Speed racer indeed.
