We lead off this week with a track from the new album by And So I Watch You From Afar from Northern Ireland. It’s the opening track from Gangs, entitled–and I double checked this–“BEAUTIFULUNIVERSEMASTERCHAMPION.”
And now it’s “Eliza” from Viper Creek Club:
And here’s one of my favorite instrumental bands, 65daysofstatic, and “Don’t Go Down to Sorrow.”
Looking forward to when they start to score films. This is off their 2007 album, The Destruction of Small Ideas. It’s available as both a CD and MP3 download. The MP3’s version’s just half the cost, so FYI on that.
And keeping my track record intact of bands breaking up after I clue into their existence, this is Controller.Controller and “Silent Seven.” I first ran across these guys and figured anybody who throws in a Rockwell reference pretty much rocks the house. This was in mid-2006 after the second album…shortly thereafter, the band was kaput.
Here we have a track from the soundtrack of District B-13 aka “that crazy parkour movie.” There’s a lot of French rap on the soundtrack and while I like it well enough, most of my attraction to rap and hip hop lies in lyrics…and I don’t speak French. This instrumental track, “Motors” by Da Octopusss though, is universally tasty.
Oddly, the soundtrack appears to be out of print and isn’t available as an MP3. Weird.
I don’t know much about the origins of this track, except it’s a mashup by Tim G. If anybody knows more than that, please let me know. Otherwise, here’s a bit of Andrew WK smacked together with The Beastie Boys.
