    Ten Fé - Future Perfect, Present Tense

    [​IMG]

    A British duo. This is their sophomore album and I absolutely love it. It’s got an uplifting, energizing sound to it like early Arcade Fire but it’s more genre bending incorporating elements of electronic and soul into rock. Slight 80’s vibe. And it isn’t happy crap by any means. Well grounded in a level of real sadness similar to Arcade Fire. But uplifting in overall tone. Beautiful sound quality.

    Finally circled back to this and really enjoyed it. The album cover perfectly captures the vibe. "Caught on the Inside" was a standout track for me. I want to see the movie that would have this song playing over the end credits."Can't Take You With Me" is great too.

    Say Sue Me - Where We Were Together

    [​IMG]

    A Japanese surf rock band that is so much more then surf rock. (Lyrics are in English). One of my favorite bands. Great surf rock style music with excellent riffs and song writing. What really sets them apart though is the vocalist and their lyrics. They say they found the vocalist at a cafe. They heard her talking and immediately wanted her to sing in their band. So her talking voice must be as unique as her singing voice which is like nothing you’ve ever heard.

    Their lyrics are all about dysfunctional city life - boring jobs, self deprecating songs about being boring, a song about beating up a girl if she cheated on her husband/boyfriend that’s super violent in an intentionally funny but subtle way. They manage to speak to real, serious issues in society in a playful, light hearted, often humorous way.

    here’s one bit of a song:

    “I should go to bed early to go to work tomorrow
    And I drink a lot on weekends to forget about work
    I’m excited that today is Saturday
    I’m just satisfied that I need to go to work today

    When I quit this job
    I’ll never get a new job
    When I quit this job
    I’ll never get a new job
    Don’t say to me "get a job"’

    excellent sound quality

    mood is chill and uplifting but not overly so. a bit of The National style darkness.

    It’s hard to pick an album all their albums are great.

    Is that a good thing? I feel like that’s fairly common.

    Glad you like them!

    I have to say this is my favorite song by them. On the album “Big Summer Night”. The lyrics and the way she delivers them is just so awesome.



    “Are you sleeping
    Are you sleeping with my boyfriend
    If I’m right just gonna kill kill kill
    Motherfucker kill you and him
    Kill your parents, brothers, sister
    Animals, broken glass, and doors
    Never forever do you understand
    I will keep this promise
    I will keep this promise
    I will keep this promise
    I will keep this promise”

    75 Dollar Bill - I Was Real

    [​IMG]

    Hypnotic, genre bending, psychedelic rock music incorporating elements of African music, Drone music. Ambient, Psychedelic Rock. The pace is fairly fast and upbeat and also repetitive in a really good way as they memorize you with twisting riffs and rhythms. The main instruments seem to be electric guitar and acoustic viola creating a very unique sound. Backed up by bass and drums and light keyboards.

    sound quality is excellent

    Thanks for posting these last couple of bands. I picked up 3 albums from Caamp. To me they sound like a mix of Mumford and Ray LaMontagne and if you have not heard the latter, give him a listen. Say Sue Me is also in my wheelhouse as I’ve a huge fan of surf guitar!! I’ve seen The Ventures and Dick Dale live! More modern favorites are Aqua Velvets and The Mermen.

    Devil Electric- s/t

    [​IMG]

    My favorite female vocalist metal band. Based out of Melbourne Australia. They really make it work. Lyrics are good, and her vocal delivery is awesome. She’s not screaming but she has a lot of unique inflection. And it doesn’t hurt anything that she’s gorgeous. Lots of great heavy riffs with really sweet rich electric guitar tone, goood bass lines, excellent drumming as well - all instrumentation is top notch. They’d sound good without any vocals at all, but she actually adds to their sound in a positive way and is convincing. There are a few other female vocalist metal bands I like but they don’t make it work so well.

    i actually am not that into metal with tons of screaming. Personally. It just gets annoying to me.

    Sound quality is excellent.

    A nice video on YouTube of them just playing the final song on the album:

    I like it. Reminds me a lot of Black Mountain's early stuff; maybe just a little bit further towards the metal end of the rock-metal spectrum.
