Emusic is no itunes. Not even close.  Recently I downloaded 48 free songs.  35 of them came from emusic thanks to ticketmaster’s giveaway while the rest was from itunes.  I must add that emusic pretty much sucks.  I should have been a been to choose 35 songs in about 2 minutes.  Instead it turned into a 2 hour long hunt for some descent music.  No Madonna, Lady Gaga, Bat for Lashes, Weezer, REM, I started to get desperate after a while.  I did end up with good songs but it took far too long. 

Here’s what I got:

Ozzy Osbourne  Tribute album

Little Boots Stuck on Repeat and Meddle

Lady Hawke  Paris is Burning

Ladytron   Ghosts, Runaway, Blue Jeans (Temple of Jay Remix)

Adele   Chasing Pavements and Hometown Glory

Santigold   LES Artistes and Lights Out

Creature     Who’s hot, whos not and Pop Culture

Roisin Murphy   You know me better (Body Jack Remix)

Kim Carnes     Bette Davis Eyes

Coolio    Gangsta’s Paradise

Bush       Little Things

Savage Garden     To the Moon and Back

Nik Kershaw     Wouldn’t it be good

Human League    Love me Madly?  and Sin City

Ever use emusic?  What do you think?

Fan Death with Beautiful Sound and Colors

fan death

I found a cool new group (okay so Perez Hilton found them before me but I did find them on his site) called Fan Death.  I know it sounds like some weird metal group, but they’re actually a two girl group that sounds kind of like Bat for Lashes and therefore sound like the cure so they sound awesome.  Not only do they sound awesome, but their video for Reunited is as well.  The colors are vibrant and the actions of the people in the video are as quirky and bubbly as the song.

Anyone else thinks that Dandi looks just like Snow White?  And the outfit was so cute I couldn’t resist drawing it.

Eccentric pop

Pop’s gone eccentric as people have gotten used to “normal”, the artists who try to be cool over different and unique.  I like eccentricies.  They’re exciting.

There’s Lady Gaga

La Roux

Empire of the Sun

Florence and the Machine

Rihanna

Kanye

MGMT

Bat for Lashes

Who’s your favorite?

Bat for Lashes

April 12, 2009 at 4:54 am (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Bat for Lashes new album, Two Suns,  was released on the 6th of April.  I haven’t bought it yet, but definitely want to.  The songs on this album have a raw element of music in them that I think has been lost.  The 60s and 70s were great for songs with real emotion.  The 80s had some good ones too.  As time wore on the “real” songs went somewhere. I’m not talking about that emo crap people seem to think is emotion now.  I’m talking about emotion from the depth of the soul, not not that weepy stuff.  An important part of showing emotion in music is real music.  After synthesizers came into affect, music became softer and when voices became more electronic it became more robotic with less emotion, realness.  Our music has become really fake and overworked.  It was refreshing for me to hear such “real” music.
