Songs for characters. · 9:00pm Jun 7th, 2017

Heya readers,

I did a song post quite some time ago for the Wheel and the Butterfly, and have thought of a handful more based on characters who I tend to use a lot when I write.

Music SIG Likes #23 :: The Heavy · 2:38am Aug 15th, 2016

A bit more laid back this time. Some indie rock with a healthy measure of neo-soul and funk rock. (No, I do not know exactly what those labels mean; that is what the great and knowledgeable Wikipedia says—perhaps someone more knowledgeable that I could elaborate?)

Regardless, I just love lead singer Kevin Swaby's voice. Really goes well with The Heavy's big-band funk sound.

Music SIG Likes #31 :: Trivium · 4:23am Dec 15th, 2016

Some heavy metal and melodic metalcore from Trivium. I really enjoy their later albums (especially Silence in the Snow); tjeir vocals are smoother, less harsh "metal screaming" and more melodic overall. I know some fans decried the shift, but I certainly enjoy the new sound. Lead singer Matt Heafy has a pleasant enough voice and it is nice to be able to hear it when he is not screaming out his larynx.

Music SIG Likes #14 :: The Cog Is Dead · 3:01am Apr 23rd, 2016

Some silly, light-hearted steam-punk themed cabaret courtesy of The Cog is Dead. It is slightly dark, yet still jaunty and upbeat; think "Steam Punk MLP musical episode as directed and composed by Tim Burton"

Music SIG Likes #19 :: The Black Keys ( + Dan Auerbach) · 1:44am Jun 22nd, 2016

A good, healthy dose of garage rock/blues rock here. This was actually the first band that introduced me to this genre and got me interested in it. Their earlier works have a deliciously raw blues sound that I absolutely love. Their later works veer more towards psychedelic; not necessarily bad, just different.

Dan Auerbach, the lead (and only) singer, released a solo album, so he is lumped in this list as well.

Bit of a repeat here as I have already posted this particular band in a blog post, but I will mention them again to make them part of the "official" list.

Some melodic death/industrial metal from Sweden. These chaps feature quite prominently in our various playlists on the production floor. I personally prefer their more melodic later works; they (IMHO) really seem to have hit their stride in Hail the Apocalypse.

Sometimes someone will be reading these silly little music blogs and suggest something new and incredible and excellent that I have never even heard of. This was one of those times.

Music SIG Likes #43 :: Trevor Green · 3:34am Apr 18th, 2017

Some more folkish music again. I do not know much about Trevor Green; there is a dearth of information out there on the internet concerning his band (as it seems to happen with these sort of bands), but I enjoy his work. He makes extensive use of didgeridoos in his songs which give it a unique flair.

Music SIG Likes #20 :: Volbeat (part deux) · 2:21am Jul 19th, 2016

Volbeat has come through again with their new album Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie.

An absolutely delicious mix of hard-rock and rockabilly, with a little gospel choir thrown into the mix. Seriously though, if you have enjoyed their previous works, you own it to yourself to purchase (save up if necessary!) this album.

Music SIG Likes #47 :: Lonely Drifter Karen · 1:25am May 30th, 2017

Something light and fluffy; pop with a measure of folk and a hint of jazz. Ebullient, cheerful, and upbeat, Lonely Drifter Karen always seems to bring a smile to my face whenever she pops up on my playlist

Music SIG Likes #2 :: Volbeat · 4:01am Jan 23rd, 2016

Now we start the actual "Music Sigawesome Likes" proper.

This is probably the "crown jewels" of my music collection; my #1, all time favourite band which I have purchased every CD they produced. Volbeat has a unique, distinctive sound that (to my inexperienced ears) sounds like 3 parts hard rock, mixed with two parts rockabilly with a little heavy metal mixed in for flavour; think old school Metallica and Elvis with a sprinkling of Johnny Cash.

Music SIG Likes #37 :: Narcotango · 12:38am Feb 20th, 2017

Some modern neo-tango courtesy of Argentine composer Carlos Libedinsky and his band Narcotango. It certainly is interesting; imagine a fusion of traditional tango swirled in with some dubstep and house. Essentially tango as interpreted by Vinyl Scratch. All the steamy sultriness of tango with a seasoning of modern, electronic dance beats.

Music SIG Likes #39 :: Franz Ferdinand · 5:38am Mar 19th, 2017

Some dance-rock/dance-punk style music from Glasgow. Significant Other actually introduced me to them a while back. Not something I typically would have listened to, but it certainly has an upbeat, energetic feel to it. Perfect for dancing flailing enthusiastically around the flat or jumping on the bed, singing into a hairbrush "microphone".

An excellent British Folk Rock musician with a career spanning decades. My brother in law and father in law both introduced me to him. Quite talented certainly enjoyable to listen too if you have a penchant for folk-rock type music.

Music SIG Likes #18 :: The Unseen Guest · 2:08am Jun 6th, 2016

Some lovely down-tempo acoustic rock with a generous helping of folk. Unseen Guest's music certainly has a calm, laid back feel that is perfect (IMHO) for sitting quietly with a significant other (or friend) simply watching a light thunderstorm through an open door...

I think this is my all-time favourite band so far (just barely edging out Volbeat). I practically grew up listening to them thanks to my brothers. A delicious blend of prog rock, electronica, and space rock. A rather distinctive sound, especially with Matt Bellamy's impressive, boisterous vocals.

As Tom Lehrer said "One man deserves the credit, one man deserves the blame". I can thank Daedalus Aegle here for introducing me and Significant Other to Jason Webley's music. It is a nice blend of folk and punk which mixes manic violin and rhythmic guitar in equal measure.

"The Prayer"- Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion (from the movie "Quest for Camelot") · 9:17pm Jul 26th, 2016

I pray you'll be our eyes and watch us where we go.
And help us to be wise in times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer when we lose our way
Lead us to the place guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe
La luce che tu hai

(I pray we'll find your light)
Nel cuore resterĂ 
(And hold it in our hearts.)
