Olafur Arnalds – Living Room Songs

July 16, 2012

We’ve featured Olafur before and filed him under “people our age who make us feel shit about ourselves.”

Likely you’ve heard of him if you’ve listened to anyone name drop post rock groups or are into Neo-Classical at all.

This collection of songs was recorded over a period of seven days where he recorded one song in his living room a day. You can hear the floor boards creak if you’re listening closely enough.

This release doesn’t disappoint compared to his previous releases, and he’s probably my favourite composer yet. He’s said he tries, and I think he achieves, bringing classical music to t-shirt and jeans folk.Also, fun fact, he drummed in a Hardcore band “Fighting Shit” before he started composing.

Crime Novels – No Fences

July 5, 2009

l_218307c09bce446aa5c5765bbbb22367This is a bit of a change of pace from the usual sort of stuff that gets posted here. Where I found this is a mystery. I suspect it may have been when I was the last person ever to hear about Crystal Castles. Or maybe it was when I was lurking through SXSW bands and picking out what I liked. It could also be the fact that it resembles Screamo in some regards and in reality, I guess this isn’t such a change after all. But now this is here, and we can all enjoy it. So at long last, behold the very little known “eletro-punk” artist that is Crime Novels.

Bitcrush – Epilogue In Waves

May 29, 2009

15-1196562190-960lLately, I’ve been in the mood for easy listening. With that, here is an Ambient-esque blog entry. In a lot of places, you’ll read that this was a nice blend of your typical Post-Rock instrumentals, as well as the Electronic aspect. I agree.  Doing some research, I found out he has been in a couple Electronic acts. That would do it.
