So some friends of mine (hardy har) started a podcast about music. Basically we pick out songs, share them, and discuss them. Sometimes it’s terrible. Sometimes it’s fun. It’s like this blog, really, and I’m enjoying it, and you should too!
If you have tracks to share, comments, or suggestions, leave them in the comments!
The Antlers, a band responsible for one of 2011’s best albums, Burst Apart, have recently announced that they will be releasing another record this July, title Undersea. Anyone who loves lyrics about heartbreak set to some of the most beautiful ambient guitar music ever recorded should be pretty excited. For those who don’t, well, you should get excited also, because The Antlers are awesome. Check out this video they released announcing the new album:
Undersea will be released on July 24th, 2012 on ANTI-.
I have never known much about this band except their music, but I have been in love with their music for a long time.
Yes, you read that correctly. Now you have no reason not to pre-order what is likely to be a great album. Just head over to RAGC! bandcamp page and choose between two options (one has already sold out (!)).
The album will be released on June 12th.
Gotye, now incredibly well known in the United States and internationally for his pop hit, “Somebody That I Used to Know”, now has even more to be happy about. The song has now topped the Hot 100, Alternative, and Dance charts at the same time. It just goes to show that a song that is well written with wide spread appeal can truly strike a chord with a diverse group of music listeners. Congratulations on your accomplishment, Gotye! I look forward to any future material that comes from you. This artist is truly one to watch! Also be sure to check out his album Making Mirrors, which is one of the most diverse pop records to be released in recent years. And yes, being diverse is a good thing in this case.
