Anyone who's ever attended San Diego Comic-Con (or gawked at the aerial photographs of the lines) will probably tell you that this event has to be the geek community's premier gathering spot. After all, where else can you see the Avengers 2 trailer early? But did you know that in terms of attendance, Comic-Con doesn't even rank in the top five for nerdy events? Or that it's not even the biggest one in the US?

Songs They Send Us: Trippy New Stuff from Ummagma

Nov
02

People send us songs. We pass them on to you. Because we love you. Enjoy!

Sporting "delicate, airy, gossamer type vocals [that] hold glimmers of Cocteau Twins", and "cinenmatic soundscapes with elements of Pink Floyd", Canadian / Ukranian duo Ummagma are poised to release Kiev - The Remixes, an album of remixes featuring artists like Sounds of Sputnik, A Copycat, and Brazil's Mind Moves. The album revolves around the Ummagma's captivating signature song "Kiev", which is inspired by the Ukranian city that was the scene of so much violence during last year's bloody Ukranian Revolution. A mesmerizing mix of guazy, atmospheric sounds, trembling beats, and fragile vocals, "Kiev" is a near perfect song that seduces the listener in and out of consciousness. Trust me, you'll dig it.

People send us songs. We pass them on to you. Because we love you. Enjoy!

When I confront a band that claims influences like The Kinks, Small Faces, and Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, my ears get all tingly. UK based quartet Rivertairs do just that and more! According to their press release they create music that blends "vivacious vocals, whimsical guitar parts, punchy bass lines, shimmering keys, vintage beats, and shaking tambourines" into curious little vignettes of musical happenstance. Their latest single, "Jack", which will be available as a free download soon, is available for preview now!

Songs They Send Us: Afroman Still Smoking Weed, Because It's The Right Thing To Do

Nov

People send us songs. We pass them on to you. Because we love you. Enjoy!

You've probably already seen this one but they sent it to us so I'm going to pass it along. Remember Afroman's "Because I Got High"? Of course you do! That song was hilarious, and it was everywhere in the early 2000's. It was in movies like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and could be heard blasting out of every college dorm in the early 2000's. It's a classic! And now it's back, remixed with a positive slant! From the press release!
