    Electric Love // BORNS

    I heard this song for the first time on the Cedar Point beach near the Hotel Breakers. Anyone know how songs can bring back memories? Yeah this one does for me for Cedar Point so I love it for that reason alone. Plus it's a catchy song. Every time I hear it I get both happy and sad and wish I could be at the Point as it brings back memories of the awesome time I had there. But nah, I'm in the plains of Kansas with nothing exciting around.

    Recently discovered the album Ten Love Songs by Norwegian singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfør. It's got energetic and powerful to somber and delicate. Recommended to anybody who likes other Scandinavian artists like Röyksopp, Robin etc. Also, recommended to everyone else because it's amazing.

    Yeah, Ten Love Songs is a masterpiece. The church organ breakdown in 'Accelerate' <3 her vocals on Silencer are out of this world <3 Memorial transforming into a orchestral interlude leading you into another world <3 And ending with 'Insects' descending into turmoil. Brilliant sequenced album. The best way I've seen to describe it is 'gothic ABBA' that style ranges from industrial disco to lush orchestral arrangements. The songs are great (well... Trust Me is a bit useless) but everything works so much better as a complete package. It pushes my top 10 of the decade.

    Thanks to Cedar Fair's Fun TVs, this song is now temporarily implanted in my brain. Thanks Cedar Point, Kings Island and Worlds of Fun.

    Seeing this dude in Manchester with TesseracT supporting, can't wait at all - shame it is so long away. This beaut of a track has guest vocals by Joe from Gojira.

    Might as well post another Tesseract song, this one is from their debut LP (although is basically two EPs). If you like your prog heavy you'll adore this band.

    If its not obvious i've been rather obsessed with Swans lately. Thought it might to be fun to post about them and see some reactions.

    I'm not even sure how to describe swans as far as genres go. They started out as Noise/No Wave in the 80s, but after their break up and reformation they're more of a noise/progressive/Avant-garde(?) outfit. Either way their songs are very long and can feel pretentious or tedious at times, coupled with some (at times) some really terrible lyrics. But I get the feeling the music is done this way on purpose to make a statement or to keep with the original idea of the band back in the 80s which was to be as dark, noisy, and generally nonsensical as possible.

    In my recent obsession ive been more drawn to their newer stuff, specifically their albums To Be Kind and The Glowing Man

    Then again i've always loved obscure and pretentious music sooooo, enjoy!!!

    The Gaslight Anthem, they are on a hiatus now but they are definitely my favourite group.
    Brian Fallon however, released an album while on Hiatus, went to see him live in Manchester. What can I say? Absolutely :censored: amazing. Lyrical masterpieces.[youtubevid]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2RVttubRs4[/youtubevid]

    Nabbed the chance to see Augustines in Manchester to so that was fantastic
    [youtubevid]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3RzXlZx9sE[/youtubevid]

    Finally time for the shameless plug for my cousin over in Ireland with their new single ;)
    [youtubevid]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oX2Pmq8hDVQ[/youtubevid]

    All these bands have lyrics which have so much meaning when you listen to them, Brian Fallon is a musical genius.

    Why do they have to split up? Only got into them last year. Luckily managed to book my ticket to see them yesterday.

    Uplifting "contemplate the universe" type song* with some lovely warm production to match. (Minor NSFW for artistic naked people)

    Recently found out that ancient, 80's-tastic rockers The Cult are still going.
    There's, like, 3 albums worth of stuff that I didn't even know about. This one, off the most recent album 'Hidden City', really caught my attention - Ol' Billy Duffy goes off on one and it's freakin ace!

    Well... they kinda sound a bit like every other rock band ever, just like they always have. Derivative as fook, naturally, and yeah there's some Queen in there, but there's also some AC/DC, some Zep, some Stones. All the good stuff.
