I never, ever, ever, ever thought this song could sound even remotely good, but this is pretty damn cool. And sexy. LFMAO should just fuck off and die now.

TUNESDAY: How to do a Dolly Parton cover

A couple of weeks ago I posted a killer cover of the White Stripes song “Seven Nation Army”. Here the White Stripes totally rip a new one into a Dolly Parton song. Gives me chills every time I hear it. Enjoy!

TUNESDAY: The Flashbulb – Undiscovered Colors (live)

Benn Lee Jordan (born October 28, 1978) is an American modern jazz and electronica musician operating under many pseudonyms. Since 1999 his most widely distributed and eclectic music has been released under the name of The Flashbulb. Other popular names Benn has released as are Acidwolf, Human Action Network, and FlexE.

As The Flashbulb, Jordan typically releases electronic or cinematic styled music. His style differs strongly between albums, but they all have a cohesive bond tied around fast drum programming, jazz-influenced melodies, and a wide array of live instrumentation from various instruments Jordan has acquired. He also often records his melodies through MIDI-synced guitars. His guitar style and skill has gained attention because he typically plays it strung backwards, and makes heavy use of fast sweeping and tapping. More recent Flashbulb albums have featured violinist Greg Hirte, who is featured heavily on The Flashbulb’s 2008 album, Soundtrack to a Vacant Life, as well. Soundtrack to a Vacant Life is, as Jordan stated in a 2008 interview, a step away from the breakcore genre. He also said that this step is likely to be a permanent trend in the direction of his music, which has been noted in more recent releases under his own name, such as Pale Blue Dot (album) and Louisiana Mourning.

TUNESDAY: Cloudkicker – Dysphoria

Cloudkicker is a single dude called Ben Sharp who sequences all the drums and plays all the other stuff himself. I’m not a fan of nu-metal at all, but this guy does some shit that actually produces a physical resonse from me. Do yourself a favour and checkout his website http://cloudkicker.bandcamp.com/ where you can download all his stuff in any format you like and even give him some money if you want.

Do it!

PN Adds: You can also find his blog here AND he’s been doing an AMA over at reddit here.

Also, Cranky… It’s not nu-metal. Nu-metal is Korn, Limp Bizkit, Godsmack, and other assortments of shameful fecal matter. Post-rock/extreme metal/shoegaze would be the best places to categorize him.

TUNESDAY: Hol Baumann – Radio Bombay

Hol Baumann is the stage name of Olivier Orand from Lyon, France. He has been composing and producing albums, theatre, movies and documentaries for many years. Passionate about what he calls his “sound sculpture”, trying to find a balance between “standard” instruments and the sound textures of electronic music. The small magic of his pieces falls between the genres of downtempo, electronic and ethnic fusion.

I’ve been stuck on this album for the last week or two. Simply brilliant, moody and atmospheric. This track in particular just stands out for me. Indian vocal hooks works beautifully here. Continue reading
