  when you need to get your mind off things, listen to myspace ear candies

Friday, April 24, 2009

im currently fixing some paperworks i need sometime in May. but then since im online, and its way past my bedtime, i need some background music to soothe the pressure and keep my head from falling.

so i thought, everytime i login at myspace, i get tons of requests from bands and artists, why not feature them on a post? well, those who i like and accept anyway.

there are a lot of trash music (well i dont mean the genre) out at myspace but there are also so many indie and unsigned artists out there who are ear candies that i can chew!

here are my inbox picks for today: (according to date of invite)

1. gravity causes confusion
2. television skies (~this one's my fave)
3. blue night
4. here come the snakes
5. suspiria

~ influences that are my faves: catherine wheel, pale saints, slowdive, placebo, the cure, love and rockets, adorable, cranes, echo & the bunnymen, house of love, jesus & mary chain, my bloody valentine, killing joke, radiohead, brian eno, the smiths, joy division, cocteau twins, james, psychedelic furs, the swans

~ genre: rock / post punk / shoegaze

1. how its never actually going to go away
2. know its never actually going.. (~i like them both)

~ influences that are my faves: Sigur Rós, Eluvium, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Cure, Brian Eno, Massive Attack, Björk

~ genre: ambient / electronica

1. lightspeed (~this is their dino side)
2. laughing at all that is cold
3. gilding the eagle (~lo-fi and my fave)
4. from sky to me (~reminiscent of "green to me" title but sounds more of "apollo" by hum)

~ influences that they did not mention which i totally totally adore: hum, dinosaur jr.

~ genre: rock / shoegaze

1. the bird in the ice EBRDX
2. the bird in the ice
3. violet wrists (~touch of darkwave, and my fave)
4. dust for kissers
5. palace of owls
6. cape the pearls (~prefer the piano less the choir-like background)
7. macaw (~could be nicer if the track was not cut)

~ note: influences not mentioned, but i sense dashes of Antony and the Johnsons. the vocals is a cross between Ian Curtis [joy division] falling inlove (and not mad love) and the smoking popes without the punk riffs. next songs were more reminiscent of morrissey.

~ genre: indie / post punk / melodramatic pop

1. to birds of prey
2. a day in.. (~my fave)
3. needle in the hay
4. blackbird
5. a poison tree
6. waves buried below
7. the wild flower's song
8. moen tnwnhbl (~however its read, this is a fave)
9. sketch

~ influences that are my faves: pavement, spiritualized, my bloody valentine, yo la tengo, eluvium, lou reed, mazzy star, the who, sigur ros, the flaming lips, modest mouse, the smashing pumpkins, the beatles, neutral milk hotel, explosions in the sky, the magnetic fields, mogwai, bob dylan, the velvet underground, godspeed you! black emperor, the smiths, the apples in stereo, cat power, the beach boys, spacemen 3, belle and sebastian, radiohead, the shins, brian eno, superchunk, nick drake (whew! long list! they did not mention Mojave3 tho i taste some songs are on their league)

~ genre: Experimental / Psychedelic / Ambient

..so that's it. i dont accept all invites, fyi. but sorry to deny 2 rap singers, a clothing line, and not accepting 2 other bands who has influences that i like but they just dont sound like my cup if tea today. music is good but the vocals and lyrics just lack quality. and oh, a singer who doesnt know how to tune his guitar! ha! for the last 3 invites mentioned, lets see in a few days maybe this phase will pass. lol
