Yup, another “better late than never” roundup coming at you straight from arctic February. But turn that frown upside down because it is Friday and you have the tunes to do the night justice. With warmer weather comes looser limbs. Move them.
I said I would and now I am! More music video madness for y’all to dive your eyes & ears into. As I think we all do, I watch a lot of boring, stale, and unimaginative music videos these days. Yet I am continually refreshed by the sheer number of quality videos that are also being produced. From simple low budget stomach turners like Humans’ latest to years-in0the-making animated mind benders like Black Light Dinner Party’s new one. Dems go rough … continue reading
I’m changing up the music video game around TBE and instead of posting individually will be doing weekly roundups of the week’s notable videos. Holler in the comments if you hate it. Ditto if you love it. This week has some heavy hitters. Most notably from a major softie. Thank you Jessie.
When I booked Humans and Young Empires back-to-back at Day 1 of The Burning Ear SXSW parties I knew it would be a good pairing but never knew that the two bands would vibe so hard they would end up touring together. Thursday night I felt like a proud father. Two band’s from my motherland of Canada rocking socks in my hometown. Humans kicked off the fun with Robbie’s awesome vocals wrapping around … continue reading
Holy smokes. What a day. So much great music. So much sweat coming out of so many talented pores. So much healing for my eardrums to do. Except they are gonna have to wait because we have 3 more days of madness! But enough about the future, lets take a peek at the past. Last night surprise guests … continue reading
Every once in a while I meet someone who casually mentions that music videos are dead and I’m always shocked. Music videos have never been more alive and vibrant than they are now in the age of video democracy online. This post is a celebration of the creative spirit that fights every day to set great songs to even better visuals. You guys are my heroes.
Watch the videos in a countdown stye playlist below or continue on to catch … continue reading
Ahem! Excuse me. If you thought you were taking a break because last weekend was New Years Eve then forget it. This is the first weekend of 2012 and it’s time to kick things off right. Below is a list of the best remixes of the past 6 months and they are quite restless so please let them out this weekend. Walks and feeding are optional.
Any glaring errors in judgement? Any additions you would make? Any good pizza in … continue reading
Brandon’s TBE Digest is a place where I gather up all the recent jams that are worth a listen (or 10) but don’t necessarily need their own post. Here you will find new tracks by known bands, remixes, covers, and even mashups if they are interesting. My favorites of the lot are in bold.
A big batch of goodies this time round. Plus, since it’s a nice round number Jacob Youngblood Ziegler hooked us up … continue reading
Reading my post on Humans’s awesome track “Avec Mes Mecs” from last year I realized I pretty much said it all already. (Plus I realized I may have gotten less funny this year. Sad…) So what if their debut EP is a year old now, its time to put some more spotlights on one of Vancouver’s finest! Since I last wrote about them, the duo has produced a fun … continue reading
