I can’t tell you how excited I am for this weeks video! Another SXSW group that stopped by the OAS studios earlier this year, Wildcat! Wildcat! are one hell of a fun band to listen to! Not only that, but their video for “Mr. Quiche” involves a break-dancing-cat-human-hybrid. I can’t even dance without wearing a costume, so props to whomever dawned the outfit… you win.
There are songs that you like, songs that you love, and then there are songs that no matter what, constantly play over and over again in your head… and you’re completely fine with that.
This past March, Kodaline stopped by OAS studios and performed an absolutely incredible rendition of their single “All I Want”. Ever since then, I find myself singing along with it at the most random times (sorry about that fellow LA subway riders).
That being said, I am happy to share with you, our latest video, Kodaline!
Sigur Rós have a new album, Kveikur, out next week. HOWEVER, if 7 days is just a little too long to wait, then you are in luck.
Amazon is now streaming Kveikur in its entirety, for free, leading up to its release on June 18. You can also pre-order the album through Amazon, or iTunes for all you Mac-heads.
Its a tad different than the Sigur Rós sound you may be familiar with, but absolutely worth the listen.
There’s a really interesting article that was posted to NPR last week, about a growing trend of cover songs being released, in which artists are actually covering dance/techno/house music. Seeing as how most of this music is more sound, and doesn’t seem like something a guy on an acoustic guitar could really make their own, its really interesting to read about this growing trend.
However the main take away from this is the cover they posted of Daughter, (yes, the same Daughter that blew us away during a SXSW session last year), and her rendition of the new Daft Punk track “Get Lucky”. If anything, you need to check this out. I’m on the fence of whether or not I like it, but I’m curious to see your thoughts on the matter.
With all the excitement surrounding Dawes coming in to the OAS studios last week, I didn’t get a chance to show you The Milk Carton Kids live on Conan performance! We just released “Hope of a Lifetime” and “Years Gone By” on our Facebook page, however when they played Conan, Joey and Kenneth did a fantastic rendition of “Honey, Honey”.
And if you don’t have it yet, their third full length album The Ash & Clay is available now!
Speaking of Facebook, are you following us on Twitter yet!? Because you really should be.
