Misheard lyrics. I can’t listen to that song without smiling at this part, so I finally decided to make this.

If you’re not fimiliar with Thrice, this is from their song So Strange I Remember You. Look it up, it’s a great song.

Songs Pt. 4

I’m taking a break from editing Road Trip ’08 videos to put up some more music. Here’s what I’ve been listening to lately.

1. Colour Revolt – Naked And Red
The new Colour Revolt album ‘Plunder, Beg and Curse’ comes out on April 1st and EVERYONE needs to give this a listen. This is my favorite track from the album so far, but the whole things is really great. If you dig Attack In Black or The Constantines, you’ll probably dig this.

2. Estelle ft. Kanye West – American Boy
What can I say? It’s a catchy song with a good beat, good words and a good hook.

3. Anthony Green – I’ve Been Dying To Reach You
As far as I know, this was a song Anthony wrote and then recorded in John Feldmann’s home studio with one of the guys from Weezer. Regardless, it’s a super catchy song and I’ve yet to dislike it in the few years I’ve had it.

That’s all for now, and as always if you have any connection to these songs and wish for them to be taken down, just ask and they’ll be removed right away.

Recently I’ve been spending a lot of time checking out a handful of really rad music blogs, and I’ve been finding some pretty great stuff. Instead of unloading all new stuff at once, I’m just going one at a time but also posting some old favorites. Stay tuned.

1. Paper Rival – Alabama
Bare bones drum rhythm, acoustic guitars and enchanting vocals. I haven’t been able to stop listening to/singing this song in my head since I first heard it.

2. Brand New – (Fork and Knife)
I just had to post it. If you liked Untitled 7, here it is with better production and a few tweaks. One of my favorite 2006 demos, now one of my favorite Brand New songs.

3. High and Driving – Baby Girl
Okay, I’m going a few years back with this one but it’s simply a fun track to sing along to.

Once again, please comment and let me know your thoughts. I see the numbers for people download, yet no one’s commenting. What the deal?
Also, once again, if you have anything to do with these songs and want them taken down, let me know.

What can I say? I like sharing music. Here’s pt.2.

1. Child/Rebel/Soldier – US Placers
Imagine Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West and Pharrell rapping over a Thom Yorke sample. Now, stop drooling and download the track.

2. Manchester Orchestra – The Procession
An old one, but still one of my favorites. I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of this song; such simplicity.

3. Owen – Never Meant
I’m not sure whether to call this an acoustic version or a cover of American Football. I mean, can you cover a song you wrote yourself? Either way, an amazing version of what is quite possibly my favorite song of all time.

Once again, if you have any power over these songs and want them taken down, let me know.

And if you like/dislike any of these songs, let me know as well. I like feedback!

Songs Pt.1

I’m going to start posting songs on here that I can’t stop listening to. Now that myself and my friends are living in ‘adult world’ (sigh) I don’t get to see everyone as often, and one of the most common questions I get when I do see my friends (asides from ‘what’s up?’, ‘how’s work?’, ‘how’s Toronto?’) is ‘so, what new bands should I check out?

Hopefully at least a few people will appreciate this. (Mr. Vickers?)

For those of you who are new to the internet, right click on the artist name/song title and select ‘save file as’ to download songs.

1. Kevin Devine – Just Stay
Acoustic guitars, catchy melodies, well thought out lyrics, strong build-up, powerful ending. Not to mention the ‘whoa-oh-oh’s.

2. Weatherbox – Trippin’ The Life Fantastic
Offbeat instruments, interesting vocals (Attack In Black-esque), solid lyrics and melodies, and most appealing is the progressive style of the song with very limited repeating parts. Who needs a chorus?

3. The Snake The Cross The Crown – Cakewalk
Simplicity at it’s best. A slow and steady buildup featuring banjos, harmonicas, hand claps, and foot stomps.

I guess 3 is enough. More to come, whenever I feel like it.

ps. if you don’t comment, it feels like no one’s reading this. so please comment and let me know your thoughts.

pps. if you have any connection to any of these bands (label, management, etc) and wish for the songs to be taken down and the free promo to also be taken down, just let me know and i’ll do so.
