31/03/11 - Metabolism

The Strokes - Angles.
Ok, so i am incredibly rubbish at sticking to my commitment of posting one track a day, even though it sounds pretty easy. I was reminded yesterday that i even had this blog, and due to peer pressure and the nagging from my friends i am going to start it up again.
I have been falling behind with it as i am currently in my last year at uni, the deadlines are rushing in, and the end is very very near! So whilst trying to stay on top of everything else this has sunk to the bottom -but for no longer!

My track of the day is of course from The Strokes! The album Angles is everywhere at the moment, everybody seems to be loving it, and after waiting for it for a lengthy 5 years i would say it has been more then worth it! Machu Picchu, You're So Right and Taken For a Fool all do it for me, they are brilliant and i have been obsessively listening to the tracks wherever i go. (Thank God for the invention of Ipods) The winner for me though has to be Metabolism, i j'adore it, love it, want it! It is the Juicebox of Angles. It helps me complete mundane domestic chores. I have even enjoyed listening to this album pumping from some randoms headphones whilst on the tube and not complained!
So for those of you crazy people that have yet to laid ears upon this album here is Metabolism, and yes Pete i dedicate this to you.

P.s. I hope i have managed to write the album name Angles consistently and not written Angels anywhere...

17/03/11 - No One's Gonna Love You.

Band Of Horses - Cease to Begin.
Wow! So it has been almost a month since my last post. That is shameful, but it has been a rather chaotic month to say the least.
Band Of Horses have made it as my track of the day again. I think i have listened to "No One's Gonna Love You" approximately 14 times in the last 16 hours. There is a beauty to this track, and listening to it whilst observing complete strangers on the tube is surreal.
The actress Kristen Stewart is one of those people you love to hate, yet i find myself loving her when she admits to her obsession with B.O.H on Youtube. Something that i have also been doing. They are a great band, an amazingly talented group of musicians. They have a folky and calm, yet modern style and profess to love and the world being a beautiful place. They are the ideal band for the Hippy way.

As one Youtube user says, "Came for the music...stayed for the beards." I couldn't agree more.
