23 Apr 2006, 14:28 by NajmiTrain’s fourth studio album For Me It's You, is the band follow up to 2003’s My Private Nation. Fortunately for Train they are able to avoid the pitfalls that marred their 2003 release, but they are not able to pull it together into a complete package. The album has a more relaxed and stripped down feel from their previous work, but that “feel” contributes to what, at times, seems more like generic mainstream music than the more unique sound Train as made for it self over the last eight years.
One of Train’s strong points, lyrically, has been the ability to weave specific everyday aspects of life in more ephemeral overarching themes. Case is point is the band’s most popular song “Drops of Jupiter” wherein mentions of Tae Bo and fired chicken seemed to fit seamlessly. However, on 2003’s My Private Nation, Train used a plethora of common day events to little effect. As the band sang about being cool like a “soda can on ice” and wishing they had “dance moves like Patrick Swayze” the…
26 Mar 2006, 12:49 by AusGnomeWell it's 11pm sunday night, bags are packed ready for a big day at university tommorrow. It's kind of sad that the weekend goes by so quick. Then again it's probably just alot of wasted time on my behalf. Oh well, song discoveries for this weekend include:
Counting Blue Cars
I Come From a Land Down Under
The Way We Get By
Swing Life Away
Hunted by a Freak
So all in all it was a pretty fruitful weekend, after hearing these songs I recommend all of them. They rock :P.
P.S. Dammm yooouu Cupnoodle, *points to Mogwai* T-T
P.S.S. Fixing up the tags >.>
1 Mar 2006, 06:46 by SparkleKittiAleady, this year has been a great year for music. Discovering a bunch of "real" artists, as opposed to my happy world of poppy music, like Lindsay Lohan or Ashlee Simpson. I mean, I'm not going to deny I'm listening to them. But I've found some new things too.
First of all, current obsession: KT Tunstall. I heard her song Black Horse and the Cherry Tree and HAD to buy it. Then listened to her other samples. Only bought a few, but love what I hear. May have to get the rest.
Next isJason Mraz and Tristan Prettyman. I put them together because A) they're dating and B) they sound similar. Similar styles, funky acoustic sounds and interesting rhythms. And both good voices. Yippee. I like them! Every time I hear more songs, I like more of it.
Thanks to last.fm, I heard about Kristin Hoffmann. Downloaded her free songs off her website, and so far I like them. I mean... I'm not obsessed, considering I listened to her today, but it ain't bad at all.
