I have to admit, I must have been hiding under a rock because this was the first I have heard the song playing while I biking along Yonge St. during Open Streets Toronto this past weekend. The song was out almost all summer! I caught myself bobbing my head to it.
Calvin Harris first debuted in 2007 with an album called “I Created Disco” and his third solo album, “18 Months” got him international cred. To date, Calvin has 4 albums.
This single collaboration with the London dance trio, Disciples, got my head nodding in the train on the way to work. The video was released on August 6, 2015.
So great to hear fresh stuff coming from across the pond!
It goes without saying that the Labour Day weekend is, unofficially, the last days of summer. Without further ado, here’s my list of things happening around town. Items 2, 3 and 4 you need to have tickets (although read up on #4 – there are ways to see it for “free”), but otherwise these events are free. Have a great weekend! (more…)
There are tons of events happening this weekend, I don’t know where to go to yet! Here’s my quick list (and brief synopsis of the event) that I can share.
An English avant-rock band. Cool.
Ah, ‘Ye’s second appearance on this list. I remember my ‘cousin’ Ira always saying “summertime Chi” whenever he could, and I never fully understood where he was getting that until I heard this autotuned monstrosity.
I’m not saying I don’t like this song by calling it a monstrosity. In fact, I mean that in the most complimentary way possible, if any. Seriously. T-Pain’s autotuned voice just makes the song for me.
The video makes the song that much better. I don’t know if you know, but I do want to go to an art school to pursue graphic design and illustration, and the graphics in the video just blew my mind. The kind of stuff done in it is intense, man. Also, I’ve really been trying to up my wardrobe, clothing and fashion design/style has become a rather intriguing area for me lately. Kanye is usually seen wearing outrageous outfits, but his clothes in the video are so clean and subtle. I’m a fan of subtle.
Oh yes, another Two Door Cinema Club song for all my fans out there.
I find myself loving this band more and more each and every day I spend listening to their music, yknow?
My friend calls me a hipster for listening to them, but what does she know, she’s a hipster herself.
Go ahead and do as I say, enjoy this song.
Ah, yes, Gotye. A hit here in America because of Somebody That I Used to Know. Most people here where I live don’t give two shits for the rest of an artist’s music so long as they have one hit, which, in all honesty, pisses me off. If you find an artist appealing, look further into them. It’s a simple enough task, nearly everyone, even 2 year olds, have access to some sort of browser of the interwebs to view or listen to some songs.
One of my more personally favored songs happens to be what I believe to be his best song off the album Making Mirrors, Eyes Wide Open.
Have a listen, boys and girls.
Okay, if you’ve been following along with my Earworm posts since the beginning, you’ll know that this was the song I first featured on my Earworms, click https://justwroteablog.com/2012/08/16/earworm-by-my-side-by-david-choi/ to get the down low.
The music video for this ballad was produced and directed by my favorite independent production company, WongFu Productions (see their work http://wongfuproductions.com/).
This isn’t one of those crappy “love” songs that are on radio circulations.
Enjoy the video.
