So I was on a field review for my work yesterday and we visited this beautiful old heritage house built in the 1870’s. The thing that really struck me about this building was it’s stunning roof line. I would latter learn that this shapely roof line is called a ‘Mansard Roof’. Here’s a picture of […]

Gigamesh puts the sunshine in my kicks with his infectiously catchy, sexified dance remix of Foster The People’s Pumped Up Kicks, which was first featured in this preview for Sunday @ Coachella.

Toned Down Tuesdays: PJ Harvey – Let England Shake

May 3, 2011 by

0

PJ Harvey is a master of experimentation. A seeker of originality, Harvey’s sound is never duplicated from album to album. This is true for Let England Shake. Her music is the result of a  combination of influences like fellow english poet T.S. Eliot and musical groups the Doors and The Pogues – as well as […]

April 25, 2011 by

What do you get when you combine singing through a fan, broken synths and garage band? You get Yeasayer’s sophomore album “Odd Blood”! This far out album is extremely psychedelic and unique which, could initially deter some listeners, however the amiable vocal stylings of singer Chris Keating contrast the extraordinary sounds perfectly. This record has […]

The Cave Singers are back with a new album entitled “No Witch”. It seems to be an aggressive departure from  their other stuff. A few tracks have Tool-like deep guitar riffs, followed by “I Am the Walrus” sitars only to be constrasted by what sounds to be James Brown’s Church Choir. This album has a […]
