Spank Rock – Sweet Talk
I’m officialy hooked. iTunes and last.fm have taken over my sweet little life forever. Forever, ever. Forever, ever! I can’t even begin to imagine how much time I’ve spent on both these last few days..lol. It’s horrible but awesome at the same time.
For you dimwits (hah, just kidding) that don’t know what last.fm is, it’s this thingy…lol. You download a plug-in for your musicplayer of choice (mine being the sexy iTunes) and it registers everything you stream, every song, every artist etc. Then the plugin uploads the information to last.fm and BAM! You got it all there. The cool thing about is that there’like a billion user on there, and an amazing amout of music (any band or artist you can think of is on there) and you can discover new music all the time. So, I’ve discovered Sufjan Stevens, Modest Mouse, Prefuse 73, Handsome Boy Modeling School and Four Tet!
Sufjan being somewhat like John Mayer and Jack Johson, only better
Modest Mouse being an awesome indie rock band, that reminds me of a cross between Yeah Yeah Yeahs, OK Go and The Thrills
Prefuse 73 is genius. Kind of like RJD2; instrumental hip-hop inspired by electronic music.
Four Tet is electronica at it’s very best. RÃ¶yksopp on acid.
Handomse Boy Modeling School. Fusion of hip-hop and electronica. Hard to explain, you gotta hear it for yourself.
God, I really needed some fresh music so I’m glad I finally opened my bright eyes to the wonderful world of last.fm. Aaahh. If you haven’t heard (of) any of those musicians I just mentioned – check them out NOW! They’re awesome. I’m planning on checking out some more indie stuff, cause I’m sick and tired of listening to mainstreem music. Not that it’s all bad, but I like music that not everybody listens too. Makes me feel special lol. :blush:
Bands I plan on checking out: Death Cab for Cutie, The Arcade Fire, Elliott Smith, Death From Above 1979, New Order and Sonic Youth. Oh yes. Can’t wait.
