Thanks to the musical ear of a man simply known as Kyle, every week Cuzoogle will feature six songs/videos that you should check out. This week Kyle is featuring Fagottron, Young Galaxy, God Speed You! Black Emperor, Cat Power, Stars and his No. 1 pick..
Surprising Turn of Events Edition
6. Fagottron – “Alice”, Not a giant fan of how this guy refers to himself, but hey…I’ve got a sense of humour too. According to the artist’s information; 90% of this track was created using music and sound effects from the Disney movie. Here’s hoping he doesn’t get sued.
5. Young Galaxy – “Come and See”, I’ve just recently expanded my music collection thanks to Barnudio (!) and a lot of it is just new to me. I’ve heard this track a few times this year, but have never gone looking for it. The influx of new music has resulted in my confusion over what I’ve heard and just heard of. This is a great pop song with an ok video.
4. Godspeed You! Black Emperor – “Rockets Fall on Rocket Falls”, It has been far too long since I have heard new tunes by theses guys. So, I’ll settle for this amazing live version, the quality is pretty good for a fan recording. If you are a fan of documentaries, you may hear some of their older stuff in a couple of newer releases.
3. Cat Power – “Metal Heart”, I could write essays about Chan Marshall’s voice, it blows me away. If I still made mixed tapes for girls I liked, a Cat Power cover or two would probably make an appearance. This is good music for wooing, not that I do that sort of thing anymore.
2. Stars – “Bitches in Tokyo”, I still really like this band, but their videos are turning in to weird art projects. I saw them live a couple of months ago and they really played to the audience. They took the time to make sure everyone was having fun. Gotta respect that and they continue to create great pop music.
1.Band of Horses – “The General Specific”, I could make an entire Six Pix just comprised of this band’s music. I love them that much. I saw Mogwai at the Phoenix this week and I was going over the list of good bands I had seen there. These guys were at the top of said list.
