Pendulum - 'Propane Nightmares'

Innocently enough, 'Propane Nightmares' begins with tame Spanish horns. But at the 1:05 mark, the song explodes into a full dance hall assault.

Metronomy - 'Heartbreaker'


Britain's Metronomy is at the height of its game on the indietastic, dance-rock anthem, 'Heartbreaker.'

Squelching keyboards and a funky bassline lay the foundation for frontman Joseph Mount's reassuring lyrics. Tired of constantly having to pick his friend up after heartache, Mount sings,
"I've been down, time and time again. The girl's no good, for me and you. She hurts me too."

It's a pretty spot-on ode to bromance for anyone who's ever played the sounding board in a friendship.

The track breaks down into a groove of handclaps and saxophone, with whistling to boot! It's definitely one of the catchier tunes I've heard in the past few months.


Metronomy
just released its sophomore album, Nights Out in September. Give 'Heartbreaker' a spin below, and visit
Metronomy's official website and myspace to check out more from the band.

Want to Know Why We Haven't Been Updating?

Recently, we've had a couple of our posts, featuring non-downloadable streams of some of our favorite songs, taken down by our blog host.  Because our blog is hosted by a third party, we were provided no notice.  

Apparently, the problem isn't isolated.  Drowned in Sound recently posted this, journaling the phenomenon.  With that said, we're evaluating the direction the blog shall go into the future.

The Dead Trees - 'Shelter'



Here is the new single from The Dead Trees, a quartet based out of Portland, Oregon. 'Shelter' begins as a slacker rock tune, but as soon as the chorus arrives and the vocals kick in, the song is taken to a whole new level. (Think John Lennon's splitting voice box on 'Twist and Shout'). Simply, the song kicks!

You can stream 'Shelter' below, or you can access the mp3 directly from the band's label here.

Radiohead Live in Concert: NPR Music Podcast

If I could get away with just linking to National Public Radio music articles all day, I might. But posting on this one was simply beyond my control.

NPR's Bob Boilen takes us back to Radiohead's August 28th concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl in California for a 2-hour performance of epic proportions.

The band brilliantly showcases it's latest effort, In Rainbows, while scouring it's extensive catalog for old favorites and deep tracks alike. Every song manages to sound meticulously practiced, yet completely spontaneous. Decade-old singles are rejuvinated as if being played for the first time.

The result is a spectacularly atmospheric retrospect of the band's career, and NPR's live recording of the show captures the quality and sheer intimacy of the moment.

Boilen compares the show to the first time he saw Pink Floyd perform Dark Side of the Moon, saying, "Radiohead's show at the Santa Barbara Bowl came as close for musicianship and creativity as any show I've seen in 37 years. I've seen a lot of shows."

You can stream and download the entire experience for yourself by clicking here! And I highly suggest you do so!

Earth To Andy - 'Still After You'

Earth To Andy was one of those bands that released a pretty decent album, and then just up and called it quits. 'Still After You' was the stand out single from Chronicle Kings, and it screamed crunchy guitar, orchestral crescendo, and a guttural vocal. For the brief time it was played on the radio, the tune was pretty ultimate.

Caught On Tape: Nine Inch Nails - 'March of the Pigs'

Need to let out a little angst?

Trent Reznor sure has done his share of venting. For all of the tortured songs that Nine Inch Nails has recorded over the years, few have matched the level of breakneck sonic annihilation that is 'March of the Pigs.' From NIN's 1994 album, The Downward Spiral, the song captures all the industrial nihilism Reznor could muster in a 3-minute single.

But it's not the rapid-fire drum beats or dehumanized noise that make 'March of the Pigs' so brutal. It's the two rare moments of Reznor's unaccompanied clarity that break from the grind to create a subtle, pop hook.

The music video for 'March of the Pigs' was stripped-down to a single, shaky camera shot, with the band performing live in a white room. The minimalistic video emphasizes the raw sound quality and aggressive nature of the band's performances.

What makes such a simple concept work so well here is Reznor's full-on rockstar takeover. He screams, he stumbles into the other band members, and he throws his microphone more than once - causing stagehands to enter the frame to fix problems. The video seems completely unrehearsed, and embraces its awkward flaws to emerge as a strong (and amusing) declaration of defiance.

Watch below to see what I mean:


There. Now, doesn't it make you feel better?

Dick Prall Concert Recap - August 2, 2008

Weatherwise, it was a nearly perfect evening when Dick Prall took the stage at the Simon Estes Riverfront Amphitheater last night in Des Moines, Iowa.

It was my first time seeing Prall live, and I'm very glad I did. His entourage included an electric cellist, as well as a sax player. And Prall's voice was in tip top pitch. The ambiance was very chill and relaxed---especially with the Honker's Ale flowing freely. At the end of his set, Yours Truly and his girlfriend had the opportunity to meet Prall, as he autographed a newly bought copy of Weightless. Prall was a very classy guy.

As you may recall, I previously posted a stream of 'The Cornflakes Song.' This time around, I'm including a few other choice cuts from Weightless. Overall, I think its quite a solid album.

The music streams are below:

Dick Prall - 'Side by Side'


Dick Prall - 'Halfway to Hollywood'


Dick Prall - 'If it Bends'

Forgotten Gem: Simply Red - 'Something Got Me Started"

By the time Simply Red released its hit 1991 album, Stars, it had already been around for half a dozen years - building success through tracks like 'Holding Back the Years' (1985) and 'If You Don't Know Me By Now' (1989).

However, it was Stars' opening track, 'Something Got Me Started,' that got me started listening to Simply Red.

The song's dance grooves and jazzy keyboards were a pleasant shift from the group's easier-listening, soul-pop leanings. The album as a whole was funkier than the group's previous three offererings. While the album's title track went on to become the bigger single, 'Something Got Me Started' still deserves recognition for its pure clubability.

To start your own 90s dance party, click the song below:
