Patrick Carney, Ralph Carney - Bojack's Theme (Full Length)


Artist:  Patrick Carney, Ralph Carney
Song:  Bojack's Theme (Full Length)
Album:  Bojack Horseman (Music From The Netflix Original Series)
Genre:  Funk

In between school and such I've been watching an old favorite show again.  I had forgotten just how much I loved it's theme song so I decided to check if there was an actual track.  Turns out there's a whole album that they put out this year less than 15 days ago, so that's fantastic.

Check out the show if you haven't, it's my favorite little slice of depression.

KONGOS - Take It From Me


Band:  KONGOS
Song:  Take It From Me
Album:  Egomaniac (2016)
Genre:  Rock

Well here's another band that I was so sure I had shared before.

As a general rule I love the stompy rock sound these guys have.  That's something I've found I enjoy more and more recently actually, "Stomp Rock".  I don't know how to describe it other than it's the kind of music that makes me want to, generally, stomp and clap along.  Either that or there's actually stomping sounds in the music.  Sometimes both.

I'm majorly whacked out by allergies right now though, so I gotta go.  But keep your eyes open, I'm doing an album review on Saturday or Sunday.

Zomboy - Outbreak


Artist:  Zomboy feat. Armanni Reign
Song:  Outbreak
Album:  The Outbreak (2014)
Genre:  Dubstep
Language:  Strong

Got this song from the guy that I bought my new(ish) logo from actually.  We were talking about various Dubstep artists we enjoyed and later in the evening he dropped me this song.

Gotta say, I really like it.  The fact that there's the rapper going over a traditional Dub song works really well since he's not trying to override the song, he's really flowing with it nicely.  Hella pleased with this tune.

Tee Grizzley - First Day Out


Artist:  Tee Grizzley
Song:  First Day Out
Album:  My Moment
Genre:  Rap, Hip Hop
Language:  Strong

So I have a plethora of playlists on Spotify, one of them being a Rap playlist.  I don't know how, but it actually has 24 followers right now, so I try to take it seriously and update it regularly.

Since it's called "Violent/Angry Rap" I do try to keep in that vein as well, and since I can't oversaturate with individual artists this means I hit a lot of the Spotify suggested stuff at the bottom of the list.  Cause of that though I tend to add a lot of artists I don't know too well and I rediscover them by shuffling them up.

Tee Grizzley would be one of those guys.  I found this song on the list just this past Saturday and was impressed at how clean and clear his vocal work sounded compared to a lot of the rappers I listen to, since the group I tend to frequent hits up the Mumble Rap spectrum a little bit.  That's not a bad thing, but it makes dudes like this stand out a lot.

Panic! At The Disco - Hallelujah


Band:  Panic! At The Disco
Song:  Hallelujah
Album:  Death Of A Bachelor (2016)
Genre:  Alternative

Y'all know what today is, right?  Freaking 3 YEARS I've been doing this now!

A lot has changed too, like, I switched post formatting a lot.  Used to just have a YouTube link and a band with a lot of info on whoever they were.  Then I switched to include a picture.  That was only for like, special weeks though, like the Week Of Evil I run in October.  I'm also realizing that I started on the 17th, not the 18th.  So that's embarrassing.  Thought it was the 18th for ages now, haha




After a while (meaning late last year) I decided to institute what you see today, but not quite as in depth.  It was kinda ugly though, and at the time all my videos exceeded the limit of the blog writing space.  I can't get a picture of that since I already updated all my borders to fix it, but you'll just have to trust me there.


As you can see, the old method was not only kinda ghetto, but the images were too small.  I also lose images right and left since I take them from google, and if I don't pick somebody like a magazine or Wiki it tends to disappear on me.

I suppose I don't have a lot of room to complain on that front though, since I'm not exactly buying the images to use.  Shh, don't tell anybody.

But hey, here I am still, posting new music every freaking day with only 2 repeats to date.  Once cause I was unoriginal, and the other cause I was requested to.

Hey hey though, I've had a blast over the last 3, and I hope any of you who've either just picked up or have been following from the beginning think the same.

Foo Fighters - The Sky Is A Neighborhood


Band:  Foo Fighters
Song:  The Sky Is A Neighborhood
Album:  Concrete And Gold (2017)
Genre:  Rock

Here's some Foo Fighters music I'm actually quite excited about.  This song is a really nifty "Stomp Rock" kinda sound that makes me wonder what the rest of the album will end up like.  Like, if it's all like this I might start enjoying them, it's a good musical direction for them.

It made me think of what Kongos sound like honestly, which is a sound I'm not fully familiar with but enjoy nonetheless.

Trivium - In Waves


Band:  Trivium
Song:  In Waves
Album:  In Waves (2011)
Genre:  Metal

I honestly thought I had posted Trivium at some point in the past, but apparently I keep forgetting to.

Here's my mildly low effort post of the day, the song that got me a couple weird looks after school on Friday cause apparently nobody picked up on the fact that I enjoyed Metal and such.

See, in real life I'm a relatively subdued person that is reasonably chill about most things.  My usual black aesthetic doesn't really affect me there since our uniform is black, so the vaguely imposing vibe I've been cultivating for the last 2 years is kinda lost on them.  Plus I wear long sleeves, so you don't see any of my kinda angry looking spiky tattoos.  Shame.

Kings Of Leon - Family Tree


Band:  Kings of Leon
Song:  Family Tree
Album:  Mechanical Bull (2013)
Genre:  Alternative Rock

At school we had some music playing, and since the system wasn't connecting to the teacher's computer properly we got to listen to Ganon's college station.  We heard a Foo Fighters song I didn't hate, some Cage The Elephant, and other such Alt Rock acts.

This song stuck out to me though and I rather dig it.

Social Distortion - Don't Drag Me Down


Band:  Social Distortion
Song:  Don't Drag Me Down
Album:  White Light White Heat White Trash (1996)
Genre:  Punk Rock

I'm gonna need to apologize.  Until I get my sleep schedule locked down better and wiggle all my commitments into their nice little boxes I'm gonna have some subpar blog posts for a bit.  A lot of them will probably fall into old trends I had like, 2 or 3 months back rather than keeping up on new stuff like I want to do, even if I don't always swing it.

With that, here's a callback to the Punk kick I was on for quite a bit there.  It's a solid little tune that does most all of the Punk band stuff that I enjoy.

Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know?


Band:  Arctic Monkeys
Song:  Do I Wanna Know?
Album:  AM (2013)
Genre:  Grunge

A band who I'd never listened to before has popped up in my peripheral listening the last couple weeks.  What I assume is obvious, that band was the Arctic Monkeys.

I feel like I had avoided these guys cause I thought they were something else.  Something like a garbage Hard Rock band or something.  Honestly I can't really remember what I thought they were, but I consciously didn't listen to them.  This was, apparently, a mistake.

I really dig the fuzzy grind that this song has to it, it's quite fantastic.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication


Band:  Red Hot Chili Peppers
Song:  Californication
Album:  Californication
Genre:  Rock

Last minute writing here cause I got caught up doing homework cause I can't plan for crap.

Here's a decent song by a band who's overrated as all crap.  I mean really, these guys have songs that are relatively simple, but since they play with a lot of energy and in an entertaining way they're incredibly popular.

Not a bad thing though, cause props to them for keeping a fanbase around.

Knife Party - Battle Sirens


Artist:  Knife Party feat. Tom Morello
Song:  Battle Sirens
Album:  Battle Sirens (single, 2016)
Genre:  Dubstep

You know what's still a blast even though it's out of style?  Dubstep.

There's a couple good artists out there still, though the demand for the style in general just isn't there now.  That bums me out a lot too, cause Knife Party is hands down on of my favorite acts of the genre.  They're so good at what they do it's not even funny.

I mean, a lot of my feelings toward the genre were heavily influenced by Payday 2's soundtrack, and Knife Party sounds the most like them.  Still though, just the way they make their builds and drops make me really happy, I'm glad they exist.

Also if you're into Pandora and want some solid Dubstep, Knife Party's mix is the bomb, way better than a lot of the other ones I tried.

Gogol Bordello - Start Wearing Purple


Band:  Gogol Bordello
Song:  Start Wearing Purple
Album:  Gypsy Punks:  Underdog World Strike (2005)
Genre:  Gypsy Punk

From time to time I find some sort of pure gold music.  Honestly, I wasn't expecting to find some as close together as I did this time though.

Just the other day I was talking to my brother and he revealed to me one of the greatest musical blends of all time, Gypsy Punk.

I'll admit I had my doubts at first, but as it went on it just got better and better.  Like, it's all super traditional sounding gypsy music, then it's all Punk Rock.  I'm so happy with it, you don't even know.

Kanye West - POWER


Artist:  Kanye West
Song:  POWER
Album:  My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Genre:  Rap, Hip Hop
Language:  Strong

Hey hey homies, finished out that first week of school, and I'm rather enjoying it.  I've always enjoyed just learning things and since this is a career path that can make me some reasonable cash I'm even more excited about it.

Actually did a haircut on friday, which was a freaking blast.  I had a hard time partitioning sections of hair, but once I started to do the cut it all fell in rather easily.

Here's the downside though, I'm freaking dead.  I don't know why, I'm just not doing well with this falling asleep on time thing.  Hence me coming back to my dude Kanye for some pump up music.  I'm feeling like I need it this morning, haha

Ramones - Sheena Is A Punk Rocker


Band:  Ramones
Song:  Sheena Is A Punk Rocker
Album:  Rocket To Russia
Genre:  Punk

I have no clue why, but for some reason this song was running through my head for the entire afternoon yesterday.  I don't really listen to Ramones too often, so the fact that this song jumped into my head is just kinda weird to me.  Actually, I thought it was a song by The Clash at first, that's how unfamiliar I was, haha

But hey, the good news?  I'm halfway through my first week of school!  Ya boy decided to finally go and further his education after like, 6 years.  Going to Toni&Guy for cosmetology, then I'm taking that and becoming a barber.  It finna be lit.

Halestorm - Mz. Hyde


Band:  Halestorm
Song:  Mz. Hyde
Album:  The Strange Case Of...
Genre:  Alternative Rock
Language:  Brief

So I figure I may as well actually make a full announcement about this since I can't remember if I actually mentioned it or not.  Maybe I dropped like, comments, but here goes then.

I'm actually like, it a band now.  Me and a couple friends put together the whole thing the other day and once we find a new drummer (cause our missed our first meeting and hasn't answered anything yet), we're gonna get together and start things.  Imma be honest, I'm not sure fully what direction we're going.  I know I have a different idea of where I would take this than the other guys in the group do, so I'm really excited for all of our ideas to fall together.

All I know for sure is that Halestorm is going to be a band that we cover, and that's what's important.
