I’m still finding out what this blog is for. My intention is to blog original music and keep records of my DJing gigs. However, strife at the the Fly is hampering my DJing exploits and I keep accidentally writing music for We’ll Write. Which is cool, obviously, but the idea of Tincanphone is to record more basic, noisy things, mostly for my own amusement.
In the meantime, I’m going to blog about music I’m listening to, because I enjoy that sort of thing, and I’m doing fuck all else.
Today, I have been seduced by new hipster NME-cool-list-fodder Foals. Let’s be honest, here. If you see the song title Tron (Is a Great Film) of course you’re going to want to check it, regardless of your wariness for anything bearing the NME Stamp Of Utter Cuntwittery. Fortunately, it’s as good as its title. Kinetic, slightly clever guitar-and-keys pop is so dangerously fashionable right now, and I’m sure there’s a wanky “post-” genre tag on it, but I’m getting too old to let preconceptions stand in the way of my enjoyment of quality tunes.
Likewise, MGMT are so overblogged already I wonder if my even mentioning them is redundant. However, Electric Feel is some funky shit, and almost certainly 2008’s D.A.N.C.E. Check it.
Finally, Subtle are a genuine phenomenon and one band I’d recommend to every living soul (except for the Tom). Unlikely Rock Shock is the first track to emerge from the forthcoming Exiting ARM, and it makes every inch of my brain very happy.
