The first single from their upcoming album Internal Logic is itself a sort of quick primer on the band’s own unique ‘internal logic’, which mostly taps into the punk urgency of spur-of-the-moment chord changes, angular, picked patterns and abrupt beginnings and ends. I’m not sure what they chime in harmony during the chorus, but it might as well be “Just strike! / Just strike!”. Previously: Disappearing Industries

Here is one more quick one before the weekend. I literally just got this track dropped in my email a few minutes ago. I gave it a quick listen and was really impressed by what I heard. Hopefully you will be too.
Knowing literally nothing about whoever the artist b.u.i.l.t. is, I find myself already excited to hear whatever he comes up with next. This is the only track on his Soundcloud page and I’m having trouble finding any other info on him. The song is called “Strange Land” and it’s an exuberant pop number that recalls 1990’s MTV R&B in a way that it more concerned with having fun than sounding sexy. It sorta reminds me of something that Autre Ne Veut might come up with if he was more interested in following conventional pop song standards. It’s a great track that’s certainly going to be getting a lot of play from me this coming weekend.
Chris Gerringer knows that feel. And it turns out, several different characters from across the geek globe know that feel too, linking them in ways that brings them all closer together. Whether it’s mourning dead parents with Batman and Harry Potter, tight living spaces with Pikachu and Aladdin’s Genie, or the demoted scientific status of the Triceratops and Pluto. I know most (hip) people have probably seen some of these before, but Chris’ series is so endearing and so right fucking on that it deserves one last look. I hope you know that feel too.
