Your Brain on Sound

Tumblrweed full of music stuffs & miscellania

Lindstrom ft. Christabelle - Lovesick

Are you sure you’re going to call back? 

This is the most relevant song in my life right now. Silly “friend” who’s bad at phone. He loses his phone at least once a day. 

I’m not saying Grimes is making crazy technical//complex music. But she does appear to mark the birth of a new female consciousness. No big deal. 

Fearless. 

Expressive. 

Playful. 

We have arrived. 

remember the time we thought we were grownups. but we were just kids w/enough money to buy stupid tats? 
i don’t. 
i don’t remember.

Burial fills the niche for every obsessive thought you’ve looped as your precious long term relationship falls into shambles.

finally hopping on the azealia banks train. everyone kept talking about how nuts we went when 212 came on on friday and i had no idea what song they meant. now it’s clear i’ve heard it a million times. love the jacques green cameo. cheesecheesecheese.

New music renders me safe from any minor mishap fazing me or the fog of ennui that lurks beneath. It pretty much guarantees my week will be awesome. So how do I find new music? In this case, I saw a mind-blowing music video for “Evil Twin” by Modeselektor. I knew that a good brain had been involved and found that he had directed another video for Siriusmo.

I think the dubstep that has come over to the US, and certain producers— who I can’t even be bothered naming— have definitely hit upon a sort of frat-boy market where there’s this macho-ism being reflected in the sounds and the way the music makes you feel. And to me, that is a million miles away from where dubstep started. It’s a million miles away from the ethos of it. It’s been influenced so much by electro and rave, into who can make the dirtiest, filthiest bass sound, almost like a pissing competition, and that’s not really necessary. And I just think that largely that is not going to appeal to women. I find that whole side of things to be pretty frustrating, because that is a direct misrepresentation of the sound as far as I’m concerned.

Jacques Greene - Another Girl

I wish that all Top 40s love songs could be put through the Jacques Greene converter to come out this exquisite and lite.
