I’ve just launched my music blog — http://oceanslips.tumblr.com/
This is full of music, old(ish) and new, so I decided to create a separate space for it. The music-related articles I’ll be posting here will be more geared towards what bands are coming to town/interviews with said bands/and new album reviews.
When I get my new record player(my first one just recently bit the dust…tears), I’ll be reviewing the latest on vinyl, here.
oceanslips.tumblr.com is the place to go if you’re looking for music to add to your listening spectrum, not limited to what’s just come out. The music is shared via youtube, so everyone can play it without needing to download any special player. The video accompanying the music isn’t usually the point, but sometimes they’re pretty cool, and I’ll usually say that.
Being in Berlin, youtube has been showing this to me a lot more than I’d like:
“Unfortunately, this video is not available in Germany because it may contain music for which GEMA has not granted the respective music rights. Sorry about that.”
Solution: vimeo.com oder thedailymotion.com. Probably more, this is just what I’ve found so far to substitute for the youtube vids I can’t watch!
Ahhh, Jack White!! He keeps doing this. Putting out ripping music, who’s chords strike relevance down to my pulsing blood. I guess that’s why it works so well.
I can’t say I’ve listened to the full album sufficiently yet, even if I have heard ‘Love Interruption’ upwards of ten times. I feel any comment on the raw of the lyrics will reveal much more about me and my recent love-history than I’d care to share with the unknown, suffice to say — it gets me. It gets me good. I can feel it, it makes me want to get up on stage and rock, even riff off some blues. If only I could play guitar.
Anyone who’s been in a relationship that’s screwed them(haha), I think you’ll dig that song. I heard he nailed it in his performance on SNL, maybe youtube it.
Oh, okay fine, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSLem5hLxLc
My favorite song so far though, other than that ‘Love Interruption’ which I kinda feel stands on its own, is ‘Missing Pieces’. Again, maybe revealing a bit too much, but the final lyrics just nail the love-struck victim on the head with truth. No better way, I say. It’s only the opening track, though, so I guess I’ve got the rest of the album to go listen to…
