So I’m gonna take this oportunity to expose a few artists/songs/music videos from different genres. I usually stick to one and go along with that, but I figured, what the hell, I found a pretty good combo today. Check out the awesome music, after the break
First up, is a music video by folk/indie artist Oren Lavie. The song is great, but the video is jaw-dropping. Apparently Cold Play recently put out something similar, and seems that a lot of fans are trash talking them. While it’s not exactly the same, I have to say, I find this one a bit more appealing.
Next up is a song by The Roots, a hip hop band based out of Philly, if I’m not mistaken. This song premiered on a late night show this week, and so far, I like what I’m hearing. Head over to Hypebeast to listen to it the way it’s meant to be listened.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Alejandro Sanz, a spanish ballad musician and songwriter, is that most of his good songs are usually depressing. That, or the whole theme is about letting go, in a happy way. In this song, Shakira is the invited artist (This is really his song, unlike ‘La Tortura’, where he is just following along with her)
And finally, a rock/indie band that caught me by surprise a few months ago, called King Kahn and the Shrines. Their sound is pretty original, they have hilarious songs, although, sometimes, just sometimes, I cant stand the vocalist’s raspy voice. I still recommend it, just know it’s not for everyone (although, I dont know what to make of this video, to be honest)
