Top Ten Tuesday (DUBSTEP/ELECTRO)

** I’m late posting, I know. :) **

1. I’m obsessed with Starfucker, so they get the number one spot for their single “While I’m Alive”. 

2. I recently saw Celeste and Jesse Forever and the soundtrack was dope. Here’s one of my faves: 

3. If you know anything about Dubstep, then you’ve probably heard of Skrillex. I was first introduced to him by my brother, who actually just wanted me to see the music video – it’s crazy and so is the track. 

*Must also give a loving link to “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites *

4. I’ve loved Norwegian duo Röyksopp ever since I heard “Remind Me”, but my love has since transformed into obsession after hearing this remix (by Protohype + Carnage) of “Running to the Sea” (ft. Susanne Sundfør)… 

5. Recently, I’ve been working on getting to more live shows. I found out that Cherub will be playing near me soon. I also found out that I’m obsessed with their single, “Doses and Mimosas”. 

6. Gotta love me some Bassnectar – “808 Track” is one of my all timers. 

7. Did you ever see the incredibly violent, yet oddly mesmerizing movie with Ryan Gosling called Drive? If so, do you remember the ethereal theme song playing at the end of the movie? Either way, you need to give it (another) listen. “Real Human Being” by College. 

8. Because I’m way into Dubstep (or is it technically “Electronic Dance Music”…?) Whatever. I’ve been doing a ton of YouTubing. Here’s “Evil Gameboy” by Virtual Riot

9. This one’s for my little bro, Joel. We all have songs that makes us feel alive – this one is that for him. (Plus Anthony Gonzalez is so fly…) “Midnight City” by M83

 

10. This list would not be complete without a little bit of Flux… “Got 2 Know” by Flux Pavillion + Dr. P

None But Thee – Young Oceans

Jesus, mighty King of Heaven
Thou O Lord our guide shall be
Thy commission we rely on
We will follow none but Thee

As an emblem of Thy passion
And Thy victory o’er the grave
We who know Thy great salvation
Are baptized now beneath the wave

Fall on us O Holy Lord
Our hearts Oh King are only Yours
By your grace we live, and we
Will follow none but Thee
Will follow none but Thee

Fearless of the worlds despising
We the ancient path pursue
Buried with our Lord and rising
To a life divinely new

Sin shall never be our master
Captives of Thy blessed grace
Offering our lives hereafter
We resolve to seek Thy face

Listen.

I am the person who obsessively listens to a song repeatedly – I mean, I wear it out. Below are the ones that I’m into right now:

Heaven Knows – Jordan Frye

How Will He Find Me – Deb Talan

Strong Love – Jon Thurlow

Enjoy!

Like the starlight of crystal holding sweet wine
Like the laugh of a child when he knows it’s hometime
Like the river that dances to the heart of the sea
Is Your song to me

Like the willows that whisper in the breeze of the night
Like the sound of a baby breathing softly at night
Like the wild sleepy sun slipping into the sea
Is Your song to me

Like the wild sleepy sun slipping into the sea
Is Your song to me

Like the touch of a friend when I feel so unclean
Like the guest at a banquet despite where I’ve been
Like a love that’s so rich and deeper than the sea
Is Your song to me

Like a love that’s so rich and deeper than the sea
Is Your song to me

Your song calls to the light in the dark of the night
Your song bleeds through a life that cuts death like a knife
Your song breaks through the madness we play
And blows it all away
I want to sing Your song

Like the starlight of crystal holding sweet wine
Like the laugh of a child when he knows it’s hometime
Like a love that’s so rich and deeper than the sea
Is Your song to me

Like a love that’s so rich and deeper than the sea
Is Your song to me

Like the starlight (Your Song to Me).

New River Boys

From left: Aaron Simpsom, Everett Hardin, & Andrew Jacobs

Or, as I mistakenly called them, the “Soggy Bottom Boys”…oops. The other night I went to their EP release party and enjoyed their easy listening, country sound.  The trio began the evening with their title song, “Heart for Sale” – one of my favorites – and proceeded to entertain the crowd during, and in between, every song after that.

Indeed, some of the greatest parts of the evening occurred in between songs, when Aaron Simpson (Mandolin) would leave the audience roaring with his dry humor. On the other hand, I can safely say no one was laughing when Everett Hardin rocked it out on cello. The guy was insane. And all the girls went goo-goo-ga-ga when lead singer and lyricist, Andrew Jacobs, sang a song he wrote for his wife!

But seriously, aside from their fun, goofy stage presence, the New River Boys can genuinely play music. For real. Expect to hear sweet, blended harmonies; easy going rhythms; and simple, honest lyrics. Think Avett Brothers.

I can’t stop singing “Love So Real”. It’s one of my favorite songs right now. I have played Heart For Sale on repeat since I bought the CD!

…I heard a rumor that these three might be playing at Galileo’s on King Street. If there’s any truth to that, I would highly recommend going. You’ll have fun and you’ll probably see ME there :)

Until then. Peace <3
