New Release From White Bells – Ghost House [EP]

My (internet) friend and sometimes contributor to this site has recently come out with a new EP filled with demos. I have listened to Ghost House several times and say it's his best released music yet. His Bandcamp tags describe the album as alternative, acoustic, emo, folk, and punk which would be accurate representations of the music. If you enjoy any of those genres, give it a listen. At six tracks it is fairly quick listen, but you'll wish it was longer. If you like it, share and follow him on Twitter (@iamwhitebells).

I had a chat with him via email and here are a few "interview-y" questions from that.

How long did you work on this album?
- I started recording demos late last year. I went through a lot of bad ideas but was able to scrape together Reductionist, CO[See his Bandcamp page to listen] by March. I meant to polish and use some of those songs for this EP but ultimately none of them worked.
Did you have any help or did you do everything yourself? I think I heard some violins in there, and probably some other things other than guitar? Did you do those too?
- Haha that's funny because someone else said they heard violin. It's an acoustic & a guitar reverb. I played around with some sounds to accompany the acoustic before I settled on what I did. But yeah it's all me.
What's your favorite song on the album?
- That's tough. I think The Tennis Court Oath would make a really cool full-band song. But standing on their own I couldn't pick one.
What's next for White Bells? Working on new songs, still refining these? Performing live at all?
- I'm going to keep working on songs, & I'll be performing around Boulder in a few months.
Anything else?
- Go Blackhawks.

Thanks for your time!

Song of the [Time frame I’m no longer adhering to]: St. Vincent – Cheerleader

I-I-I-I-I-IIIII just wanted to share this track from St. Vincent's 2011 album, Strange Mercy. I have only just started listen to her but am enjoying it so far. Once again, I'm pretty late to the party. I'm arriving to the party so late it is actually the morning, and the house is a fucking mess, I can hear a girl throwing up somewhere and multiple people should regret things they no longer remember.

St. Vincent came out with a new album this month titled St. Vincent. I have listened to it once and am listening to it again as I write this, so that's a good sign. Check that out if you like this song.

Enjoy, I know I-I-I-I-I-IIIIII did. Although I haven't watched the video, so let me know if that's any good. Thanks.

TTMML: FRANKIEonPCin1080p – GETTING STARTED! – Arma 3: Altis Life – Ep. 1

A friend, who is more into computer games than myself, recently sent me this video. Since it is 20 minutes long I was hesitant to watch but after being told, “dude, this is hilarious” or something to that effect, I gave it a shot.

Hearing the first words spoken was all I needed. Not only did I watch this first 20 minute video, but I have spent countless hours watching FRANKIEonPCin1080p's videos over the past two weeks. I could listen to British people talk for hours, and I have.

The premise of this game is essentially a very large game of “Cops and Robbers”. Frankie and his pal run around the game dicking around with the natural order of the cop/robber relationship. Along the way there are jokes, laughing and people who recognize his very recognizable voice. He has a fairly large following from his similar, but less mocking, DayZ videos.

If you like video games and laughing, or just like listening to the soothing British voice, give this sitcom length video a shot. If you make it through the end, can you please answer the question, “who the hell are the people that play cops in this game?”

Check out FRANKIEonPCin1080p on Youtube.

TTMML: Broad City [Comedy Central]

Bored, far from it. Brode, getting there. Brood, not quite. BROAD City. There we go. <--This is dumb, probably should delete.

Broad City is a new Comedy Central half hour comedy, Executive-ly produced by Amy Poehler, and it is hilarious. Now, I'm only basing this off of one episode, but have I ever steered you wrong before? Not that I know of.

Starring and created by Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Broad City follows the life of two women living and working(?) in New York City. The show actually got it's start on Youtube as a web series (you can watch here, https://www.youtube.com/user/BroadCity, watch first episode below.) in 2010, which I have not yet watched, but have added it to my long list of things to watch, read, listen to, etc.

The show is on after Workaholics on Wednesday's at 10:30pm EST. Call your local cable provider to make sure you have Comedy Central.
