This is by far one of the strangest music videos I have ever seen. But I will say one thing – I’ll definitely think of it every time I hear the song. Needles to say, I’ll be taking the stairs from now on.
Some days are made instantly better with the right soundtrack, today is one of those days. Listen well
Flight Facilities’ new album is flawless and ‘Merimbula’ is definitely one of the album highlights because apart from being a solid track, it’s also a slight departure from their signature sound. If you haven’t heard the album already, you need to get your hands on it immediately. Why? Well, give this track a listen. It should be all the convincing you need.
Who wouldn’t kill for this?
So I spent all of yesterday binging on Weezer’s Pinkerton album, in the same way I binged on it in my dorm room back in 1996. Then I went through all the b-sides from Pinkerton, and they sound just as good as any of the songs on the original album. ‘Waiting on You’ is like a 50′s Doo Wop song interpreted in classic Weezer fashion. The lyrics about heartbreak, the harmonies, the synthesizer, and of course the guitar lead – these are all staples of the Pinkerton era.
Luckily you don’t have to travel very far for paradise. As of now, nobody knows who Zhu is.
Dinosaur Pile-Up is playing the NH7 Weekender festival this year in India, and I’m pretty bummed about missing it. Apart from some of the other acts performing, I would love to see these guys perform live. Based solely on this music video for ‘Peninsula’ which is a compilation of their concert footage, I’m sure it’s going to be one kick ass performance.
Also, listen out for that guitar lead at 02:10 – it’s just plain awesome.
I’ve been listening to this song ever since my first year in college in 2002 and with each repeated listen, I realize more and more that it is the reverb in the chorus that keeps me coming back every time. The last time I listened to it I was on a 6 hour whale-watching boat ride in Sri Lanka. So I guess whether you’re in a dorm room, a boat, or an office, this track will always be appropriate.
I have a lot of respect for Mark Ronson as a music producer and musician. He has made and been instrumental to a number of tracks that you love, including much of Amy Winehouse. Listen closely to understand why, Kevin Parker’s contribution doesn’t hurt either.
