The fabulous life

Despre a cui existenta am aflat in ianuarie

Posted in Café de la Musique by daianara on January 31, 2010

In luna ianuarie mi-am continuat love affair-ul cu Sputnikmusic. Elitistul din mine se bucura ca a iesit din normele Myspace/Last Fm/Grooveshark. The obsessive compulsive part a gasit o comunitate de oameni care fac liste. LISTE!! How can you not love that? Umm, on second though… *cough

Asadar, sa incepem cu desertul. 2 formatii complet diferite, 2 albume care mi-au placut in proportie de 50% (or more).

The Raveonettes sunt o trupa daneza de rock alternativ (according to the Internet) a carei (probabil cea mai mare) realizare a fost sa aiba 2 piese incluse pe soundtrack-ul Gossip Girl (don’t watch the show to know if that’s big or not). Albumul include piese ca Suicide, Break up girls, Last dance, Boys Who Rape (Should All Be Destroyed). In ciuda titlurilor alese surpriza! nu e un wrist cut album. E happy pop, in your face pink, make all your troubles go away. Din punctul meu de vedere e perfect pentru ianuarie. Oh, and if you’re a guy, and you can boogie to this, my (still) hypothetical hat comes off to ya.

Highlights: Last dance, Bang!, Suicide, Gone forever.

Cursive-americani. Indie-rock. Includ instrumente ca violoncel sau orga in muzica lor. Albumul pe care l-am ascultat se numeste fix “The ugly organ”. E ok pana pe la jumate (primele 6 piese) apoi devine previzibil deci boring. Insa in timpul in care inca te prinde…what a ride. Exemple de versuri: “my ego’s like my stomach, it keeps shitting what I feed it”. Sau: “Cut it out, your self-inflicted pain is getting too routine”. Sunt trupa la care cred ca o sa revin doar pentru a vedea ce-au mai fost in stare sa scrie. :)

Highlights: The recluse, Art is hard, Some red handed sleight of hand.

Bat for lashes-the cherry on top of my imaginary music dessert. Bat for lashes e ceva ce cautam fara sa stiu, iar acum ca am gasit-o inca nu stiu foarte bine ce e. Stiu doar ca ma simt al naibii de bine ca am dat peste muzica asta. Probabil cea mai cunoscuta piesa e Daniel, but screw that. Here at indie headquarters we like indie stuff. Recomand din suflet Glass si Moon and Moon. The most mood inducing music I’ve heard in the last year.

Firimituri

Adica restu’, alea alea care au mers sa fie ascultate de vreo 2-3 ori dar fara impact considerabil.

Gotan Project-Cand aud lumea mentionand formatia asta cu o reverenta aproape mistica nu stiu de ce, dar ma gandesc la name dropping. De parca ar fi parola secreta care, odata rostita, te face sa intri in clubul select al celor care se “pricep” la muzica. En fine, e doar tango combinat cu electro music. Merge Una musica brutal, dar am atat. Ah da, album era La revancha del tango.

Puscifer-V for Vagina. Puscifer e unul dintre proiectele lui Maynard James Keenan, de la Tool. Kinda like A perfect circle, just more offensive, dark and depressing. Wouldn’t give it the time of day, daca n-ar fi Rev 22 20, care mi-a placut. Neaparat in varianta Dry Martini Mix.

Neutral Milk Hotel-In the aeroplane over the sea. Alta trupa americana luata in considerare din 2 motive: 1st albumul asta e in top 3 la vinyl sales in State, it’s that good. 2nd, Holland 1945, una dintre piesele incluse pe album a inspirat-o pe Amanda de la Dresden Dolls sa scrie o piesa de teatru. Gasit online, too bored too watch. Albumul e ok-ish, insa singura piesa care a ajuns sa-mi placa e prima parte de la King of Carrot Flowers. Listen to the harmonica! And ignore the crappy video.

2 tipe prea deprimate pentru binele lor: Emilie Simon-The big machine (French chick with a high pitched voice) respectiv Paloma Faith-Do you want the truth or something beautiful? Mnoah, asta din urma mai stie ceva, voce asemanatoare cu Amy Whinehouse dar fara drug issues. Respect pentru Stone cold sober si piesa care da titlul albumului. Daca stai sa asculti versurile si intri in the mood, te-a terminat. Handle with care.

BONUS!

Low. Cica genul abordat e slowcore. I like it so much that it  almost sounds obscene. Am probat tot album Secret name de pe care iese in evidenta Immune dar neaparat de incercat alte 2 piese, aparent, cele mai bune pe care le-au scos: Point of disgust  si Dinosaur Act.

See you with more at the end of February. :)

    Glass is amazing!
    Hypnotizing rhythm and a voice that focuses all emotion… de-li-cious! Thanks for it!

    Nu stiu de ce dar imi pare fantasy music, ce ai asculta in timp ce citesti Tolkien sau R.R. Martin. But that doesn’t make it any less awesome. Glad you liked it. :)

    […] moon, sunny lucrul pe care-l regret cel mai mult e ca nu mai pot alerga; melodia asta (de la Daianara) m=ar face sa-mi iau […]

    Puscifer rocks!

    Meh.

    Caută şi versurile de la Diferente – Gotan Project. Tell us what you think :)

  7. daianara said, on February 20, 2010 at 10:44 am

    Cautat versurile si piesa. Am auzit: “Imagine all the people living life in peace whooooohoooooo”. Noah, merge dar suna exact la fel ca restul pieselor. Cat despre mesajul pacifist: meh. Just mho. :)

    thank you for the pretty music. Selectii cam plangarete totusi.

  9. daianara said, on February 26, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    You’re very welcome. Defineste-mi “plangarete” te rog. And ps: gasesc foarte amuzanta partea cu UBB Cluj din adresa ta. :)

    • Popa said, on February 26, 2010 at 4:07 pm

      plangarete, gen bune de baut in memoria unei fostei prietene, ori potrivite pentru savurat o prea frumoasa insomnie. as putea continua filozofeala, dar nu prea imi place sa ma bag in seama…

  10. daianara said, on February 26, 2010 at 4:44 pm

    Weird, nu prea le-am vazut asa. Bineinteles, depinde si de starea persoanei care le asculta. Have a sit on the virtual couch.

    • Popa said, on February 26, 2010 at 5:03 pm

      apropo, ziceai ca ti-o plcut partea cu UBB cluj, imi poti zice care anume, ca m-ai facut curios. eu uit automat ce scriu.

  11. daianara said, on February 26, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Ah, nu ma refeream la vreun post anume doar ca atunci cand se primesc comentarii spre aprobare, alaturi de alte detalii, apare si IP-ul&the internet service provider. In cazul asta UBB Cluj. :)
