Dropping out of high school always seems like the wrong route to go. Dropping out of high school, traveling Europe, manifesting in as much culture and music as you possibly can, though, seems oddly like a route I'd rather take over college. Not only is Final Fantasy a video game and a band, but Beirut goes a step further by being both a band and the capital city of Lebanon! What awesome homophones. Beirut has an uncanny ability to make guitars unmissed. Quoted from his myspace, the instruments used are as follows: a trumpet from Paris, farfisa organ, accordion, piano, ukelele, mandolin, glockenspiel, violin, cello, tambourine, an air powered organ, a congo drum, and a broken microphone (stolen from the University of New Mexico). If you like sounds from intruments you've never heard of, like me, you'll probably enjoy Beirut.

Final Fantasy isn't just a video game..

What?! No! It's Owen Pallett's overwhelmingly awesome Final Fantasy. You know him.. maybe. He's the blonde Canadian violinist, part of the Arcade Fire. I had no idea such a thing, his 'band' even existed prior to a few days ago. I can honestly say, I never thought twice about a possible Arcade Fire sub-endeavor, but I love it. His solo popularity seems so overdue.. or maybe it's just me. And maybe I'm just so surprised at my own unpuctuality not knowing Final Fantasy was more than just a video game. Shame on me.

I can't find his myspace.. Owen Pallet on Amazon

When I have a headache, I turn on Lightning Bolt; especially their newest Hypermagic Mountain. Usually, it makes my headache worse, but then after about 2 minutes in, my headache has dissipated.. odd. Maybe the noise in my head and Lightning Bolt's sound waves subconsciously counteract, and kind of cancel each other out. A two-piece drum and bass duo, from Rhode Island, have been composing distorted and bizarre technical brilliance for the past 7 years. The epiphany of a younger, smaller, louder, fuzzier, more experimental sonic youth, formed in art school. I think they’ve practically structured their own genre. Once you’re past the ringing ears, the concept they’ve created is sort of ingenious. The lyrics are barely audible, but awesome; Dead Cowboy is even political; involving George W. in an Afghan pit. They’re a difficult band to comprehend, really, unless you listen. Your ears will hurt. They’re disorganized. But I guarantee they won’t be boring.

Acid Pebbles

My new favorite compilation album. Well, favorite long forgotten obscure mid 60's singles album. The 60's; the only decade I'd actually want to live in.. if I couldn't live in the 1920's Jazz Age (the girls then had cooler haircuts). The psychedelic facet of the time is totally neglected (currently, of course). I didn't realize that until I discovered the Pebbles Volumes. Hendrix was obviously awesome; Rubber Soul and Revolver were and are two exceptional albums, thanks to a mind-altered Beatles, but the other forgotten bands are almost just as cool.. well, maybe not as cool, but you know, nearly. I'm just disappointed that I can't find more info on the Pebbles' artists; like Jefferson Handkerchief and Adjeef The Poet. Any band who names their song 'Squafrech Lemon Comes Back' deserves more recognition. Even after a few good decades..

New Young Pony Club

A day in and I lied already. I'll mini review.

The single 'Ice Cream' is obviously recurring... if you haven't noticed. Similiar to Irish band, The Chalets, sounding a bit like The Gossip and Gang of Four.. a little; they'll certainly get you dancing, or make you want to dance, if you can't dance, of course. DJ Mehdi's Mix of Ice Cream is downloadable on the first mixtape before this blog. It is, in fact, awesome. Oh, and FYI, Get Dancey is way better than Get Lucky..

Ice Cream is an awesome video.
