Mike Laverick just posted an article about music and that triggered this one. I already did a couple of posts with youtube clips so let’s continue the tradition. Unfortunately I could not find the official videos of the latter two… but who cares anyway.
Editors – Papillon
Probably one of the best concerts I’ve seen over the last couple of years. There’s not much more I can say, they played an amazing show and this is one of the tracks of their latest album. Each album they’ve produced has a different sound but it doesn’t sound forced, it’s an evolution….
Besides music that’s almost depressing I also love music which sounds energetic and aggressive but has positive touch. One of the bands that most definitely falls into that category is Minor Threat. Minor Threat is more or less responsible for the existence of a sub genre called straight edge hardcore. For those who don’t know what “straight edge” is check wikipedia.
One of the bands that I haven’t seen live but that blew me away with a new album is Them Crooked Vultures. Although not all review were positive I think people reviewing music should take a couple of steps back. Expectations around Them Crooked Vultures were so high that it was impossible to meet these. That was also never the goal of Them Crooked Vultures. These guys wanted to produce a solid rock album and they did.
I am not so enthusiastic about “Them Crooked Vultures”, saw them at Lowlands live. What do you think about this:
