The Holidays


Fresh off the presses, the new song of the down under band 'The Holidays' gives us all hope that well composed tracks aren't limited to the end of the year months.   This track features a bouncy ball synth-rhythm section and trickling musical percussion that unites seamlessly with a visual journey which is provided by an apparently well traveled protagonist.  Meanwhile, the vocalist serenades us throughout the course of the sensory feast with a tale of summer travels that are at once both nostalgic and blissful. You'll want to go home for "The Holidays" after watching this!

NOBUNNY



I had the pleasure of experiencing NOBUNNY live in one of my favorite local venues a few months ago, and let me tell you it was one of the most electrifying shows I have ever seen. These guys bring an incredible energy to the stage and it spreads like wildfire throughout the crowd.   I've included a video of them semi-live for this reason.  If you ever see them in your locality, do yourself the favor and just go!

Death Grips


Beware!  If this is the first time you see this act, your likely to take quite a shock to the system. The first time I saw them was a few years ago when, I saw a person apparently able to translate the communication of rage and directing it in a such a compleat (sp. intentional) manner as if he was a living case study of someone completely acting instinctual and utterly dangerous.   Needless to say I was knocked out with my first impression by a presentation of raw, ferocious power.  Now it has been a few years, and the sound production of this act has now elevated to the pinnacles that match that vision of sheer terror that I once saw on my computer screen.   This act is total fire, and I can not look away. You won't be able to either, it's inescapably melt-down magnetic.

Class Actress

Hey everybody, I am back with this month's video selection.  Today I bring you Class Actress, which appears to be mainly the chief work of the clever actress and musician Elizabeth Harper.   I really feel like this track summons up elements of some of the better classic New Order material, yet while giving it its own chic twist with a smooth yet poignant vocal delivery style akin to the feeling of drinking that first rich latte after a busy day at the office.

BLSHS





In honor of 'almost' Valentine's day, a day of much emotional turmoil on both the positive and negative sides, I present to you the most excellent synth-dance song that I have discovered yet in 2014.  It was fabricated in a town that is not widely known to produce such dance flooresque diamonds such as this.  It's great to see Houston return to the dance hit treasure map with the work of BLSHS.  Oh, and I hope your Valentine's date this year makes you or still makes you blush!

Atlas Sound

The historical hotbed of indie music in the south of the USA never fails to produce evocative sounds.  This track from 2011 brings you a sound that sort of resembles warped kind of vision of questioning things behind a fishbowl glass. This act is the solo project of Deerhunter's Bradford Cox and is just perfect accompaniment if there ever comes a day for you where you feel your senses teetering on the edge of nothing.

Blouse



This act has been brewed to perfection hailing from what has become one of the coolest communities on Earth.  The drifty, dreamy yet slow dancy enablers Blouse lovingly bring you some well crafted tunes that coincide with their very thoughtful lyrics.  This particular video features them doing an impressive live set recorded from an art museum.
