So, I found this band yesterday. I had heard of them before, but only vaguely. Oh boy was I missing out! They're a trip-hop, fusion, jazz sound thing group that I don't really know how to properly classify. What I do know, is that they sound great!

This song, which I heard yesterday, will kick you in the ass. It's so good!

Glory Box

I'm listening to it right now, and I don't know that words can properly describe how wonderful it is. I hope you enjoy it like I am.

They look like ROBOTS!

Guess who is an international band? I certainly had no idea for a long time, but I guess it's because I simply didn't ask. Anyways, hailing from the Hexagon aka France, it's:

DAFT PUNK! Let's kick it off with a jam that everyone knows!

That is some amazing hand work!
The next song is one that's not as famous as some of the others you can find, but it's a personal favorite of mine.

And finally, we'll finish off with some new work. As many of you may or may not know, they did the soundtrack for Tron:Legacy, and they even made a cameo in the movie!

That's got a heavy sound, and apparently it's not on the actual soundtrack, but it kicks ass anyways!

Let your ear soak in that sexy goodness for a while. See ya on the flip side. Later!

Most of you have probably heard of, if not listened to, Rammstein at some point or another. But this morning, I heard this song:

Frühling in Paris (Spring in Paris)

I loved it. It's got a slower pace, but it's still got that heavy rock sound they're so famous for.

Here is what is arguably their most famous song, at least here in the States, and a supremely badass one at that:

Du hast (You have)

And one more that I found on Youtube, and just listened to for the first time:

Fueur Frie (Fire Free)

These guys are so full of win it's ridiculous and it makes me want to learn German more than ever. I was already planning on it, but this just motivates me more.

Citizen Cope

This guy has a unique, but amazing, sound. He's another American, but it's what I can think of off the top of my head at the moment, as I find myself with a few spare minutes. All of your comments were really kind, and this is the easiest blog to update, so I can do it quickly.

My favorite song of his, by far:

There is also a Santana remix, with Santana's guitar laid over it. Check it out, it's awesome.

Here is another great, and more upbeat, song by Citizen Cope:

He's got a really soulful sound. It's good stuff. He's also the guy who made that song "Let the Drummer Kick." You may have heard it around. I think it was used in some commercials and stuff.

Change in plans...

Thank you all for reading and following and listening, but this is going to see a major slow down in posts. It's the smallest of my three blogs, and I've got so much to do coming up in the next few months that I just won't have the time to devote to it. I'll try and post videos when I find them, but maybe leave out the writing? It's just about time management at this point. I hope you understand, and I really do appreciate all your support.

Thanks again. :D

Adele- British Vocal Powerhouse

A fantastic young artist who has burst onto the scene the past couple of years is Adele, a lovely lady from Britain. She has rocketed to stardom with her album 19, and has continued her amazing vocals and classic style on her new album 21.

The first song I'm sharing is Hometown Glory, an anthem of what it means to experience the place that helped shape you into the person you've become. I'm giving you the live version, because you'll quickly realize that the beauty of her voice doesn't rely on studio enhancement.

The next track is a favorite of mine, called Set Fire to the Rain. It's from her new album, which is where you can find other amazing songs like Rolling in the Deep.

I hope you can come to appreciate these fantastic songs like I have, and see the beauty in an approach to music that stands apart in the modern music scene.

FIR- Female lead rock from Taiwan!

The next band I've got for you is another really well rounded band who is also pretty popular in Asia. FIR originate in Taiwan, and sing all their songs in Chinese. They've got a range of songs, from melancholy to fast and fun, but my personal favorite is a slower song called Wo Men De Ai (Our Love). Enjoy it.

Here is another one that you've GOTTA listen to! The music in this one is amazing, and is truly moving. I feel like I know exactly what's going on, even if I can't understand the words. You can ignore or enjoy the video, whichever you wish.

And here, since I said they were upbeat, is a song that is pretty much a dance rock song. Fun beat to groove to.

They've got multiple albums out, and plenty of other great songs. I suggest you browse around on Youtube, you might find a song you love! Thanks for checking these out, I hope you enjoy them.
