Patience is a Virtue

18 May

If you’re a Bon Iver fan, you know that “Calgary” is the first single in two years. God, why do you make us wait so long? Folksy, haunting, soothing, layered music. I.e. quintessential Bon Iver music. I.e. Amazing.

Reptile’s Theme by Skrillex

18 May

Skrillex crafted the theme song for the character Reptile in the new Mortal Combat 9. The game is the most brutal gory game I’ve ever seen, it’s ridiculous. Search for the fatality moves on youtube if you dare. Something Sonny would play for sure.

Gucci MANE

18 May

Cheaaa B0iii. Rap ain’t really my cup of tea but Gucci Mane is funny 5hit, he jus works for me. He’s thug as hell, and so over-the-top, dat therz no question of me takin him seriously, it allows me to enjoy listenin to him. He’s fucking hilarious. This was my first impression of him b4 he got popular: My Kitchen. And the fact this is remixed by the most stereotypical chillwave-whiteboy-hipster artist makes it even more hilariously and ironically dope. Yeaaaa Fattt BLunTzzz wit ma iced out Bart … ” I don’t have to bore her or financially support her, he do all dat lame stuff I just keep it gangsta”… “my watch so stupid icy I cant even tell da time”…”I hangout with stars, you would im an astrologist” good sh1tt

The Jezabels

18 May

A powerful indie rock group who met at the University of Sydney a few years ago. This song was featured in the second half of the Danny MacAskill’s famous biking video “Way Back Home” (which you MUST see). At first watch, I falsely assumed the band was Scottish because of the theme of the video and their similarity to The Cranberries.

Sydney’s We Say Bamboulee

18 May

As you might know already, Her and I will be spending next semester at the University of Sydney. We haven’t even got there yet but I’ve already stumbled upon an incredible song by a Sydneysider band,We Say Bamboulee. I fell in love with the sunny harmonies and ambient synth. And no I don’t know why they reference Wisconsin. This youtube video is also an interesting find, a compilation of photos from a couple’s trip to the city.

“Young Blood” (White Sea Remix)

18 May

You might have to know the song to appreciate this remix. Stripping the song to a minimum, it starts with a sincere chorus of whispers by the likes of the Xx. At the drop it launches you from a white sea into a strobe-lit dp of forgiving joy, putting the song at a cosmic level and weaving the lyrics to remind you what this bittersweet song is all about: youth, love, and whispers.
