New Music :: Evangelicals

Evangelicals are pretty much great times 12. I have found myself slowly listening to this more and more and had a moment of clarity this afternoon when I realized this album may be the best new music out there. Oddly enough, they are apparently from Norman, which I didn't know until just now when I looked them up. That is kinda interesting - here we have Norman, OK, the land full of Sooner douche, and somewhere trapped in that mess is a bastian of indie music greatness, which also produced the Starlight Mints and the Flaming Lips. This is both confusing and intriguing to me. Some of the songs on this album kinda sound like Broken Social Scene and some of it kinda sounds like Clap Your Hands, but different then both. Really, really great music for 2008.
2008 is the first year where when I say it or type it I kinda feel futuristic... 2007 didn't really have that feeling - but 2008 definitely does. Is anybody else with me on this? We are kinda in the future these days I think. Think about it, plasmas are kinda everywhere; I carry all my music in my phone; I can watch episodes of Rob and Big and Mythbusters anytime I choose... the future is upon us.
Here are a couple samples off the new Evangelicals album that is pretty much a must buy to anyone that likes good new music. Party Crashin' is a fav of mine.

New Music :: Holy Fuck

Here's something new for you to listen to, Holy Fuck. Holy Fuck is an improvisational electronica band from Toronto... apparently they got together to make electronica that can be enjoyed live and not just something that was looped and spliced and stored on a cd. It makes for some pretty solid listening. Holy Fuck is instantly infectious and would be a great soundtrack for a dance party. I saw the Fiery Furnaces and Super Furry Animals on Friday and Holy Fuck opened for them, at that time I wasn't familiar with them and missed the show... what a mistake. Sounds like it would have been the best of the three. Here are a couple samples for your enjoyment, the album is available on iTunes. The Pulse is really great.

Stereophonic Zoology!

Stay Classy Dallas has a new friend in the blogosphere, her name is Stereophonic Zoology and she is the brainchild of Craig the Great. Craig is a buddy of mine and fellow art director @ TL and his blog is taking on serious steam. Tons of posts and lots of cool vids. Like Stay Classy, Stereophonic Zoology has a vehement interest in music, and the two blogs have very similar taste - so you might see a little overlap. Sprinkled in between are some pop culutre rants and random bits of local events. If you love SCD you will love Stereophonic Zoology.

Happy Friday!
