Three Records I Am Into Right Now
Sorry for the lack of music posts here at AVC. I am going to make it up to you with three for the price of one.
The new record is not as edgy as the prior two, with more acoustic guitar and melodies. But they write great songs and this is so listenable.
I've been listening to them on hype machine since then and finally succumbed and bought the record. To be honest, it's not consistently great, but there are five or six killer songs on it.
Their music is described as "electronic indie dance rock". I guess that's a good description. I call it fun.
Made In The Dark - Hot Chip - While we are on the subject of electronic music, I have been into the remixes that Hot Chip does for the past year. They are often featured on the Hype Machine. My all time favorite is this remix of the Stone's I'm Free.
I got the new studio album and like the MGMT record, I feel that it's mixed but brilliant in parts. The diversity of style and sound is simply amazing.
I can't find an mp3 on the web right now, so click thru to my tumblog and listen to Touch Too Much, a ween-sounding track that is my current obsession.
