Welcome to another October edition of Music Monday. Today I’ll be rambling about Terrified by The Rural Alberta Advantage.
Okay, so, if you listen to it, you might think that it’s kind of a stretch to include it in a Halloween month line up. It’s not really about anything spooky or scary. Well, tough nuts, this is my blog, and I get to stretch however I want. It’s called Terrified. Close enough.
Time for another edition of Music Monday!
Now I’m actually going to be covering a song that most of y’all have already talking about if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter. I really loved Garbage back in the day. I lost track of them sometime after they did the World Is Not Enough song, and hadn’t thought much about them for the next decade and some change until they went on the Nerdist to promote the release of Strange Little Birds. I enjoyed a couple of songs off Strange Little Birds but something about it felt off. Different, at the very least. But I listened to the songs enough that algorithms knew to offer me up anything new from them.
That brings us to a few weeks (months?) ago, when a new single titled “No More Horses” popped up on my radar. From first listen I was hooked. The heavy beats, the lyrics, the haunting sound. It was everything and more that I wanted from a Garbage song. I can’t wait until the album comes out.
Let me know what you think!
Hey folks! Happy (or equivalent) Monday!
This week’s track is the creative anthem by Japandroids, the tweet-killingingly-long-titled “Near to the Wild Heart of Life”. It’s a really rockin’ song about a singer leaving town to pursue his dreams, surprisingly with the support of pretty much everyone in his life. It’s one of the most absurdly positive songs I’ve heard in a long time and I love it.
Some of you might thinking “Fred, you love every song you post here,” and that’s right. I’m not going to post a song just to hatefuck it. These are songs that I like. I liiiiiiiiike.
Anyway, I couldn’t find a video that would stream from the blog, so instead I’m including a link to their bandcamp page. If you’re going to have to click anyway, you might as well click to the source.
Hope you enjoy it, but either way, let me know what you think!
