I Remember by deadmau5 & Kaskade

 

Now normally I wouldn't listen to deadmau5 but this trance track is gorgeous.

 

Eh that's one if his tracks that I'm not that huge on.

 

Two Door Cinema Club - Something Good Can Work

 

Just got their album, some of the album versions are a bit different to the versions I've heard, but it's not too bad so far.

Black Keys - Tighten Up.

 

Always wondered who the song was by, then I stumbled upon it by accident after hearing a different song on the radio that blew my mind.

 

Their older material is much, much, much better. You must check it out.

Listened to what I could find from The Big Come Up; not bad. You can hear their roots much better in their original songs, however I believe that their most well known songs from their debut album (Leavin' Home and She Said, She Said) are both covers. Although I like their bluesier songs, the more Beatles-esque songs such as She Said, She Said aren't my style.

 

I preffer their second album, personally. Listening to "Have Love, Will Travel" right now. Thickfreakness sounds like it was made in the 60's, I hear Hendrix calling through Dan's voice and guitar.

 

Yeah, they did some covers on their first albums.

 

Thickfreakness is golden ('Thickfreakness' and 'Set You Free'), as is Rubber Factory ('10AM Automatic', 'Stack Shot Billy', and 'Grown So Ugly' in particular plus a Kinks cover with 'Act Nice and Gentle'). Magic Potion, in my opinion, in too riff oriented and gets stale after a while.

 

I will say that I appreciate some songs a lot more after hearing them live. I've seen them 3 times and the energy of their live show makes even the so-so songs great. 'Busted' from The Big Come Up comes to mind.

Just Got To Be from Magic Potion is an awesome song. I agree that the rest of the songs on that album get stale after a while. Although Your Touch's opening riff reminds me of Heartbreaker by Led Zeppelin.

 

To make this post less off-topic, this is what I am listening to right now.

Honestly, I'm still on the fence. I was hoping for something that would make me feel better about John not being in the band anymore, but it didn't really impress me.

 

Listening to some Bon Iver.

Oh my god that live stream of AnCo was so good. Bad quality, but they played extended and improved versions of Brothersport, Taste, Summertime Clothes, We Tiger, Did You See the Words, and a bunch of new songs that are REALLY GOOD. The MPP songs all had guitar and drums added instead of all electronics. I'm so excited for their new album now.

 

Anyways, now listening to this:

Ok, dunno how I missed that post before, but I just listened to the single. It's pretty hard to get used to the Chili's without John, he's just so good, plus I miss his backing vocals. Maybe that song will grow on me like Dani California did, but...it's still weird.
