MUSIC WEEK #15/16

Can't believe this happened again. Not only is it two MUSIC WEEKs combined in one post, but it is also late. I got excuses no one really has time for excuses so let's GO. I promise to do this every Friday from now on. Why? Because Friday is the end the the week. Friday is the icing on the cake. Friday's where I round it all up yo.

I have also not posted a lot recently due to things "in real life" happening and occurring all at the same time. Let's all get over it and enjoy what music I gravitated towards these past two weeks.


MADPETE 省广奇兵 - CANTONESE BOOM BAP
Retro hip hop in Cantonese with real simple charm

2MORROWS VICTORY - VOIR (JUSTUS)
Dream-skate-hip-hop - it exists

EARTHQUAKE ISLAND - THE CASE OF GALASTROPHY
Sample-based chill in this wonderful album

CORY JREAMZ - HOWL
The incomparable up-and-coming rapper delivers more indefinable alternative rap

VULKANO - VISION TRICKS
Bassy dark indie pop from Sweden

YO'TRUE - WILD RICE
Ex-Tellison member pleasantly surprises with this sugary-sweet throwback pop

FOREST SWORDS - THE WEIGHT OF GOLD
Ancient English esoteric rites in music form

HARRISON - LOLIPOP LOVE
80s rework = future funk

ALMA ELSTE - VIRTUALISM
Sultry-voiced Parisienne emotively croons over synths

X PRIEST X - SAMURAI
Cuttingly stylish 80s-esque pop from Florida

ANAMANAGUCHI - ENDLESS FANTASY
Chiptune epic that actually sounds like an endless fantasy

SUPERFOOD - TV
Fabulously mundane lyrics and slapdash indie rock a bit like an English Weezer

RROXYMORE - FLTNORDF
A beautifully constructed techno odyssey


That's that. There really has been a lot going on that I haven't covered, this is probably like 20% of everything I had meant to write about but didn't for some reason or another. Either way, I find my 1st favourite in MADPETE's Cantonese hip hop - just really does it for me, y'know? My 2nd favourite is Forest Swords, just love that frantic sound. And my 3rd favourite would be... let's say HARRISON, because I can't help but be sucked into that funky funk groove.

Next Friday. Promise. A nice little round up. Oh and by the way, the image this week comes from whatevenamdrawing - check his funny-funny drawings out at whatevenamdrawing.tumblr.com.
