< -- - - Naaah, not the hot woman...Music (:...Well, actually, yeah that too...But nah, its Music :) Every Tuesday, starting now, I'm going to show you guys, (with my slight bias of the Music that I like) of my 5 tracks of the week in descending order !! So lets begin at...
No 5 - (Artist) Escape The Fate - Issues
Well, this song, although quite mainstreamy, which is what (lets be fair) Escape The Fate are heading to...Actually has a nice beat to it, a cool mini solo, and the Music Video to it is not bad...Of course, album wise, their self titled album is seriously...A bunch of shit...Don't buy it, their older stuff is much better, not only that...But one of their tracks, "Massacre" from the album is basically a rip off of an even shittier band - "Bring Me The Horizon"...Stooping that low won't get you fans...But anywho, here's the video to "Issues":
Now at No 4! - (Artist) Sonic Syndicate - Jack Of Diamonds
This was the first song I listened to by them when discovering this Sweedish sextet. The intresting thing is that...For all those people who knows their music, its quite similarish...At least definitely the intro of "Still Remains" song "The Worst Is Yet To Come"...Could it be ripping them off? Probably not, or at least intentionally, nah. But, this was the beginning (as I do extensive research of bands by listening to their back catalogue) of their change of direction in music...And okay, this sorta music I can tolerate from them, because its not too different from their older stuff. However, whatever you do...DO NOT buy their newest album...(This song came from their 2007 album "Love And Other Disasters")...Definitely their older album stuff is worth a listen! Anyway, here's the song by them, and lads...And women that like looking at women...You'll like the vid !
Now we're in the Top 3! - (Artist) Sonic Syndicate - Baby Girl
This is probably not as technical as the two songs above, but I prefer this over Escape and Syndicate...Why? Its not because of music preference, because I like most kinds of music anyway...Its more the fact it sounds more...How to put it...Honest, and really has a bit more of a uniqueness to it, more than the current music scene at the moment...Anyway, your probably asking...Who the hell are they? Well, they are a female trio from Finland, living very close to the Arctic Circle. They're very much unknown...So unknown that I found it VERY difficult to find the download to their EP, but I have got their first album, and also...I have found their VERY FIRST BOOTLEG!! So if you want their bootleg, then contact me! Anyway, the music they have is a bit more varied than the "Baby Girl" song suggests, as when I listened to the album, it had a good level of variety to it...Not only that, but it was really a sorta "In your face, Fuck you" album...Which I like...In other words, an album thats not only honest, but made with alot of spirit by the trio! Here's the video below:
No 2 - (Artist) Eiko Shimamiya - Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni
For all those that don't know. This song is also the opening credits to the Anime "Higurashi No Naku Noro Ni"...(Same title as the song...Coincidence eh)...Nah seriously, this song and its theme is dedicated to the anime, and if your curious in regards to the anime, you can check what its about right here ->>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higurashi_When_They_Cry . So...Why is this song rated so high? Well, Shimamiya has quite an eerie and unique style of Jpop/Jrock music compared to alot of the artists in that scene today. Not only that, but she's one of the very few Japanese artists that have quite lengthy and progressive songs in her music...And very unique and not generic either, so I give her music a good listen! It may not be to anyone's taste, but the lyrical content, the delivery and the sheer overall music of Eiko Shimamiya makes it such that she's the No 2 in my Top 5! Also, a random note while im watching the video (Shown below)...She does have some "Lady Gaga" like fashion...And this was made before Lady Gaga was even known (2006)...Could she have been influenced by Eiko!?
Now we're onto our No. 1...And it was on "NME Magazine" of all places that got me discovering this band...
It was in big, red bloodied writing...Of this one massive word, with 4 women above it...It was basically, one of those covers that would tickle most people's fancy...
Unfortunately, 5 minutes after I wrote that, NME were bitches to NOT include that front cover image on their website...But they have their main article image on it...Just go on their site...Grr!!
They are a progres...I don't even know What sort of band they are, but let me tell you now...They are seriously going places!!
You don't even know the band name...Haha, silly me...
No 1 - (Artist) Warpaints - Elephants
This band, upon listening to their song (And this was their debut video song of their EP) the best way that it could be described is..."Trippy", but at the same time, these 4 women (In the video there's a male drummer, but I can assure you its a all female band) with intricate soloing, harmonies, and music I never really heard of in any way whatsoever...The only word I can say in describing the band "Warpaint" is "Breathtaking"...For the simple fact that they are very unique, and diverse, and have great musical talent too...I've noticed also that the music industry and people alike are taking them seriously. How do I know? Well, firstly, when I tried *cough* downloading *cough* their material, the links have been removed by Music higher-ups, which usually only good/rising/popular bands have that happen to them. Not only that, but for a debut album, Warpaint debuted not bad in the charts! Maybe not a top 10, but definitely a great start! Emily Kokal (The vocalist) of the band, has that quite naturally beautiful sounding voice (Like Florence And The Machine), which also blends in well with the music style that they have! Definitely give these LA Rockers a listen...They are definitely going to be huge in this decade!
Well, that about wraps it up for today's article! And hopefully later in the week i'll post about something else!! Till next time...Peace!
