Lost In The World

29 Sep

Justin Vernon and Kanye West, the collaboration finally makes sense on this song. Unbelievable, love it. Can’t wait to see what Kanye does next – the brilliant asshole that he is…

Jimmy Eat World

24 Sep

School has suffocated my life as of late, and for that I’m sorry.

Bleed American was, and is, an album that evokes an unbelievable amount of memories. Which is a testament to the weight it carried. The songs were basic pop-rock at heart, but their simplicity allowed for me to fill in the gaps with my own emotion and thought. (Very hypothetical, school is clearly leaving its mark).

However, Jimmy Eat World disappointed with their next few albums; maybe because I was no longer young and vulnerable to pop melodies and overdriven guitars, or maybe because they just sucked. Either way, I can’t help get excited about Invented (releasing next week) after hearing what has been offered up.

Mumford and Sons

Known about these guys for a while now, yet never fell in love. Yet with the leaves now falling, the summer now ending, and the drinking now starting (studies first of course pa…) they somehow seem all that more relevant. Enjoy.

Show Her Beauty, Before The Damage Is Done

8 Sep

I’ve had this album since it was released in August, but it has been overshadowed, overlooked, and generally neglected by me. For no real reason at all, I just never got around to it. The same actually goes for the band as a whole. Their two previous albums Funeral, and Neon Bible are incredibly praised and critically acclaimed by pretty much everyone with a voice worth listening too; yet I never really jumped to give them a listen. Maybe it’s some subtle subconscious effort to reject the camaraderie of pretentious music listeners, or maybe it’s just pure stupidity. Needless to say, Arcade Fire makes some pretty special music, while addressing some really engaging themes. So if you aren’t part of the group I just insulted, and haven’t heard this already; have fun.
