Track of the Day: Dusty, Dazey, Southwest Blues

Jul
15

Sound Sweet Sound, what sound might that be? It's a benign band name as far as they go and could signal pretty much any sort of sound, but no matter what they called themselves, not much can prepare you for their epic, acid western track "Up to You," which sounds straight from the Tex-Mex border regions, but SSS actually hails from Toulouse. And I just love it when that happens . . .

Jul
15

For the first time in franchise history, Jurassic World will actually feature a functioning Dino-park, complete with attractions, and visitors, and all of the trappings of a real-life theme park. In fact, as our previous sneak peaks at the film showed, the filmmakers have gone the extra mile in building particularly elaborate sets, complete with fully-stocked gift shops and park facilities. As a big theme-park enthusiast, this is particularly exciting for me, as it means being able to pore over all of the movie's cool props, like this leaked park brochure.

Track of the Day: Low-Key, Brash, and Warbly Synthpunk from POW!

Jul
14

What's immediately striking about POW!'s "One-Eyed Scorpion" is the 'off-ness' of the synth: you're used to hearing this sort of sound: fast and freewheeling shifts during the chorus, the 3-chord garage tripod, slight Liverpool accent, indistinct lyrics. Then you realize that constant drone, almost heavenly it's so thick and enveloping, is not just an extremely fuzzed-out bass--it's a synth, a glorious synth roaring away like a motorboat grafted to a nuclear generator.
