Memoir

Sunday, July 15th, 2012

I am in a nostalgic 80’s mood today. After sharing with you an 80’s sounding Malka Spigel track earlier tonight, I have received this real fun track by a band called Goodbye Labrador, titled Memoir, featuring tasteful guitars riffs and vocals that reminds me of Bernard Sumner (of the New Order and Electronic hall of fame). After a quite hectic and exhausting day, I have played Memoir a few times, and forgot…

 


Love, French, Better

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

Gold Zebra hail from Montreal where they recorded ‘Love, French, Better’ few months ago, a gorgeous song heavily influenced by the eighties. GZ are Julie / Vocals & JP Richard / Synthesizer / Guitar


It Hurts

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

Charles Hurts is a band from Belfast and they sound like a 50`s – 60`s type band, although I could swear the vocals are 80`s vocals. This song is real fun though, I found myself humming parts of it all day today. Check it out, ‘Like Glue’.

 


The Spectators

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

I have received a mail from an old acquaintance of mine, Dennis White, who happens to be the owner and founder of the Seattle Dadastic sounds label. Dennis has been releasing and introducing to us many local legendary punk, pop and R&B bands and artists, one of which is The Spectators, a band Bob Mould called ‘the best unreleased band in America’. The Spectators Call it KAOS‘ was recorded about 1982 at Triangle Studios back when it was owned by Jack Weaver. Dennis hopes to release a Spectators digital album sometime in the near future. In the meantime, Listen to ‘Call it Kaos’, from this inspiring band, especially to the awesome guitar playing of Byron Duff. This is organized chaos though, and to me it sounds like The Talking Heads meets Devo on speed.

Is this eternal?

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

He says he is Influenced by Eno, Budd and God. We have some unsolved issues with blind God believers, but it’s a long and tedious battle, and this is definitely not the time or place to discuss it. There were times we thought Eno was nearly God, but when he started interfering with earthly matters he knows nothing about, we understood he is as limited as any other human we know. There is no doubt Andrew G. Clark is as talented musically as he is as a visual artist. The roots of his music lie deep in Eighties synth pop. It might sound a little poppy for some of you, but we enjoyed listening to this musical project of his, ‘Future trends’, on this springy Saturday afternoon.

Is this eternal?

I need that record

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

Records, vinyl, albums, record shops. For those who grew up almost half a century ago and were and hopefully still are into music, it is almost a way of life. The smell, the sound, the excitement that brings you new release, or the anticipation of an important album from a significant artist, you know, Bowie, Beatles, Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, Zappa, and so on and so forth. I believe more and more readers of this blog, recognize mostly the mp3 icon on their desktop, no disrespect, and soon enough wouldn’t know what a CD looks like, and I am afraid, hardly ever been to a record store. It is a new era of digital downloads, itunes, emusic, sharing, youtube, facebook, twitter and myspace. My 13 yr old daughter listens to songs blasting of her mobile phone cheesy speaker streaming of youtube. Continue reading the entire article

Super Fly

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

I guess I don’t have to introduce you this guy, but if I do – Curtis Mayfield was a funk and Afro American music pioneer who has influenced so many funk soul and hip hop creators for many years and still does so. I have heard this song by him and was amazed how funky soulful and timeless it sounds.
