I love her!
I love her!
I have been listening to this album a lot lately, and I’m definitely lovin it. Give it a listen below and tell me what you think! (my fave tracks are “No Power” and “Synthesocietal”)
PS: If you don’t have SPOTIFY…get on that!
It’s been three very long years since my favorite French band, Phoenix has released an album. But today, fellow fans of Phoenix, our wait is over!
OH MY GOSH! It’s finally here! If you haven’t checked out the album yet go do that RIGHT NOW! It’s below (Soft Kitten is my fave)! AHHHH I am beyond excited, and it is safe to say that Metric has topped all of their previous albums with this one. I can’t wait to see them at Lolla and then in Tampa! Yayyyyyyy! Oohhh and don’t forget to watch their music video for the album’s first single “Youth Without Youth” that was premiered today! Click here to watch.
So I have recently stumbled across this goldmine of a band! I actually found them when I was researching The Color Run and in one of their promo videos they featured Imagine Dragons‘ song “On Top of the World” and I loved it so much I had to listen to more of their music!! Oh my gosh am I glad I did!!! Imagine Dragons is a Vegas based band of 5, Dan Reynolds, D Wayne Sermon, Ben McKee, and Daniel Platzman. They have four EPs out right now titled “Imagine Dragons”, “Hell and Silence”, “It’s Time”, and my favorite “Continued Silence“. I really like ALL of them! Although I have to admit I found that most of the tracks I fell in love with were from the “Continued Silence EP”. The best part about this band you might ask? The fact that I haven’t heard anything like it, specifically the way that each song sounds different from the last, I think that’s a special quality to find in a band (their albums make for good car dance parties!…just sayin). I am mainly writing this review with “Continued Silence” fresh in my mind…actually playing in my ear-bud at this very second! On the band’s website “Continued Silence” is referred to as a “six song in-your-face sonic grenade that breaks musical boundaries and yet is strangely relate-able by its improbably diverse audience” and I couldn’t agree more! My two favorite tracks by this Vegas band are hard to choose, but if I had to I would pick “Radioactive” and “Demons“. I have to say this EP has some serious TV and Movie potential..come one Music Supervisors, scoop them up quick!! I just really think this band is a great find and I hope you guys like them as much as I do..I really can’t get over how great they are!! If you do, make sure to support and go buy their EP, like em on Facebook, and PLEASE listen listen listen (below)! would love to know what you all think! Happy listening fellow music lovers!!
In case you didn’t know, May 1st Metric‘s upcoming album Synthetica became available for pre-order! You can pre-order the album in several different ways, Digital, Vinyl, CD, or the coolest way: The Synthetica Stereo Box! We all know what Digital Downloads, Vinyl, and CD’s are so I am going to skip right over that to tell you about this Stereo Box (because it is juts TOO cool!). The Synthetica Stereo Box originated from a Buenos Aires artist Andres Guerberoff. Emily proposed that Andres and the band come together to create a sort of diorama box that also holds music…THUS THE SYNTHETICA STEREO BOX WAS BORN!
Inside the box there will be the Synthetica CD, a 20 pg booklet w/ mirrored mylar insert, 11x3D photographic slides (one for each song), instruction manual. The 20 booklet contains the photos from a group of architects in the 1960’s who came up with dystopian views on how the future would look, these are the photos that also inspired the whole Synthetica Album!
Only 500 have been made and EACH AND EVERY ONE will be numbered and signed by THE BAND THEMSELVES (is it getting a little bit awesome in here or is it just Metric?! lol). The second I found out about this awesome stereo box I bought one immediately, I have to asmit I am MOST excited about the autographs but how freakin’ cool is this box?
Here is a video of Emily Haines describing the Synthetica Stereo Box, and what to expect when you get yours!!
