[WIN!] Sing Street DVD & Shure Earphones

John Carney makes great movies. His breakout hit Once turned the world onto the fantastic band Swell Season and was definitely one of my favorites of 2007. Then his 2013 film Begin Again starred Mark Ruffalo and a pre-late-night James Corden. So when I heard I got the chance to give away a DVD copy of his latest film Sing Street AND its a feel-good, coming of age story featuring the ultimate soundtrack of the 80s I was pretty stoked.

Life – “Rare Boots” // Jason Feeny

I stare into space

I see nothing

I fell on my face

I felt nothing

Sounds like a recipe for some boot kicking angst to me. Fire it up! Punk like this brings me back. Until Life releases some more I’ll be over here moshing into my closet door and damaging my eardrums.  Read more

The Living Statues // Andrew Valko

I drove past an old drive-in movie theater last night and it of course made me sad. The Living Statues are the perfect soundtrack for picking myself out of that bummer and setting my mind straight.

I see your silhouette in a cigarette
So I take a hit like I never quit

BRIKA would prefer YOU keep that grill going strong

BRANDYN BURNETTE would like to STATE some things I’M down to believe IN. Especially the INNER CHILD in me.

Half of this song was written when I was a kid.
The other half was written recently.
After all that time, this is the state i’m in.

Brandyn’s words above about “State I’m In” say things better than I could.

KINDATHEART blur my PERCEPTION of things when this jam is cranked loud

Don’t be late for your next class/meeting! Crank up “Perception” and kick your ass into high gear. If you legs can keep half the pace of the killer bass riffage here then you’ll be there in no time.

ENTRADA have TODAY’S jam for THE moment when you at LAST rule the DAY

Discovering you have superpowers is never easy for an adolescent. But a proper montage set the right music makes it all easier.

Fun fact: Entrada are from different parts of the UK based in Japan. They eat the best ramen on the regs and that makes me a bit jealous…

BRODERICK BATTS has mee feeling in the PINK with an evening of EMPTY bottles and loose PROMISES ahead

Not my usual vibe here but sometimes when Friday roll around you gotta wild out and get weird and sing lyrics you aren’t supposed to cause the song so damn catchy you can’t help it.
