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.
Listen to it below, or go to his Bandcamp Page to listen, along with his other tracks.
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.
St. Vincent - Cheerleader
According to the number of views on their five or six music videos currently on Youtube, I am late to the Metronomy - The English Rivera craze. A friend recently recommended them and I am really enjoying TER. It's a fun, poppy, indie album that will pass the time enjoyably. If you like this, check out some of their other tracks, The Look and The Bay which are the two most popular on Youtube.
Metronomy - "She Wants"
Portugal. The Man recently came out with their seventh studio album, Evil Friends. Despite my love of a couple of their albums, I haven't yet fully listened to Evil Friends. I plan to soon though, and you should also do the same because of the half listen I gave it was classic Portugal. The Man.
"Evil Friends", the album titled song has a pretty great video that is shot all in night vision. The snowy-ness, clothes, and hatchets remind me of my days living in the U.P. of Michigan (also some weekends I spent in northern Wisconsin). So if you are from there, you might enjoy it even more. Song is decent and picks up a bit into it. Give it a listen, WOULD YA ALREADY?!
Portugal. The Man - "Evil Friends"
Liked this? Check out another Portugal. The Man song, "So American".
This song needs no introduction. If you think it does that means you probably haven't listened to it so just stop reading this nonsense and listen to the song. "Debaser" comes off Doolittle, a little late 80's alternative rock album that could. As you can see on its Wikipedia page, it is HIGHLY regarded.
