This is music blogging.
Music, today’s, it’s horrible. At least, what most of the people I know listen to, just bad.
Turn on the radio. Do you hear that? The crap hip-hop (and I do like hip-hop. It’s just like everything else I listen to, I only like good hip-hop, ie., J. Dilla, Wale, Cannibal Ox). The rock music could be the worst, though, and that may only be because that’s what I listen to the most. Screamo/emo/whatever-you-call-Nickelback, Grime? I don’t know. Something beside’s horribly scary. Then the pop crap.
(pop has always been bad. idea of pop: not music, bite-sized commercial chunks of melody and lyrics. but that’s what the song is nowadays, i suppose complaining would be useless)
Go ahead and turn the radio off. That’s torture enough.
Today’s generation sucks, seriously. Music-wise, attitude-wise. And the worst part is I’m a part of it. But there’s good new music out there.
This column (as implied by the number one up there) is modern music I deem good. And most of it will be stuff found around the internet. What I mean is, songs that haven’t already been covered by Pitchfork or sites along those lines. Yes. Some of these songs may be from dreaded Myspace bands. Or blogs. Other things. We’ll see.
The song is called Hide Me, by the Golden Filter. I have yet to encounter an album of theirs, which is sad. Pop/Electronic/Techno maybe. I’m no good at classifying music. The first place I read about Golden Filter was on Katie West’s Tumblr. She posted a make-out video, basically, and it had a nice soundtrack. Video above.
Next track here, because embedding didnt work.
Another good song from the web, by somebody cal led at Kongregate Collabs. This is a collaboration site, supposedly bringing together artists of all kinds to work on video games. This is a cool idea, hopefully one that’ll bring more fun products like this. The the original page for this piece is here.
Sadly I couldn’t find a way to embed this piece. The track is listenable here.
Last track for the day comes from another Tumlbr page, 5lights. 5lights was a lot of artists working on Warren Ellis’ ROTOR project idea. Really cool text pieces, great looking art, lots of naked women in it’s last month. All around a great product, this site. The song is by Star St. Germain.
That’s it for today.
