Day 234: Birds by The Submarines

3 Feb

Hey everyone!

So the beginning of the year is always awesome because there’s new music a plenty. So far I’ve featured Ducktails, Fleet Foxes, Daley, Peter Bjorn & John (x2), and the Decemberists!

Well more good news!

An indie band that most people would probably recognize from their iPod ads just dropped a new single today off their new CD. The Submarines are a relationship-band (much like Matt & Kim or Mates of State) in which John Dragonetti and Blake Hazard have been on and off dating in their career of making music. This makes their music intriguing: all of their relationship songs are somewhat about each other… so it’s easier to grasp what the band sounds like.

I’ve been a fan of the band since I heard their song “Xavia” in the indie romantic comedy Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist (2008). It’s a little electronic and wee bit psychadelic, but completely infectious. Ever since then, I’ve been rocking their hits here and there on my way to class or waiting for the bus.

Their new song “Birds” is surprisingly more upbeat than their other music that I’ve heard… so I was a lot happier listening to it! It features an on-key vocal track provided by Hazard and some cute chillin’ beats in the background, definitely something I can get used to (here’s to hoping their newest CD sounds like this all the way through)!

Anyway, enough rambling from me… enjoy “Birds” by The Submarines… and click here to download a free copy of this mp3 (courtesy of Spin Magazine)!

Day 112: Flock Together

9 Sep

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Normally, I try to avoid putting two types of posts together (unless it’s a theme week), but I found this game tonight that I want to share desperately!

The game is called “Flock Together,” and it is simple and sweet. A little girl has lost her best friend, a sheep, in the clouds (it was tied to a balloon). So, using your mouse and arrow keys, you have to gather a flock of birds to reach your best friend in the sky.

It’s adorable and easy to do (I suggest aiming for the albatross and the hawk.)

So enjoy “Flock Together”!
