Winter Music Time: Tune of the Week VII

It’s been a while since I’ve updated, but I’ve been in Thailand for the past while. Oh woe is me, I know!

But I wanted to share Com Truise. I downloaded this a long time ago actually, but I took me a while to get into him. Yes most of the songs off the album are remarkably similar to one another, but after a while I decided that was a good thing. It’s his style. and if you like his style, then you want more of it.

I’ve been really enjoying this album though, Galactic Melt, as it reminds me of Tangerine Dream and Risky Business (I think the name Com Truise should be indicative that this is no coincidence).

Think blue lights under cars, the city scape at night, girls riding motor cycles, and warm summer evenings (or as it happens, winter evenings in a tropical country). Anything dark with a bit of light. Shade with joy.

Fall Music Time: Tune of the Week VI

This song speaks for itself. If it doesn’t put a smile on your face I just don’t know what will! When I first heard ∆ (Alt-J) this summer, I didn’t think they were even speaking English. I figured oooh, something upbeat from Iceland for once instead of Sigur Ros (no disrespect, but its not exactly uplifting music).

If you like this song, grab their entire album “An Awesome Wave” and have fun walking home on crisp fall nights with a smile on. Jump in the puddles with your gumboots and revel in the little things! You wont be disappointed! Enjoy!

Summer Music Time: Tune of the Week III

I proudly introduce you, or reintroduce to those who are already fans, Tycho.

Specifically, the new Album Dive. Equal parts chill, equal parts summer, this album makes me want to sit on a train with my headphones in a foreign country while looking out the window. Fly over Japan while the sunrises looking out the window as the plane circles around Mt Fuji (true story, but replace Tycho with Cut Copy). Start a backyard midsummer night’s evening barbeque with friends.

What I’m getting at, this is the life soundtrack for good, dreamy times. I think the musical artwork aptly amplifies this vision:
