Day 299: M.O.P.E. by Ambassadeurs

17 May

Hey guys!

I’m a big twitter fan, if you don’t know already (if you want to hear the random ramblings of my crazy mind, you can follow me: @margasaur). I follow a variety of different people from comedians to photographers, from publications to websites, from well-known musicians to totally unknown musicians. It’s like my passion to discover these people.

Well, this morning, I woke up and checked my twitter only to find this awesome DJ following me and linking me to his music for free. Going by the name “Ambassadeurs,” Mark Dobson is a DJ from Brighton, UK! He is a DJ “who’s eclectic sound draws influence from Electronic, EDM, Hip-Hop, Dub, Field Recordings, Ambient and many other forms of music and continues to try and push the boundaries when it comes to production.”

His free song is pretty much amazing, so I wanted to feature it here! The song is called “M.O.P.E.” and it is super catchy! If you like this, go check out his other music on his facebook¬†or you can follow him on twitter @AmbassadeursDJ! But for now enjoy “M.O.P.E.”!

Also, if you’re a twitter connoisseur like myself, follow these people: @PasteMagazine, @chopchopmusic, @johnroderick, @mshowalter, @robhuebel, @fleetfoxes, @Gibbstack, @mrdavehill, @michaelianblack, and of course @UOCulturalForum!

Day 85: Ultimatum by John Roderick

13 Aug

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)!

With two more days left in Paste mag video week, I bring you “Ultimatum” by John Roderick.

As a living resident of Seattle, John Roderick is one of the legendary alt-rock icons of the Pacific Northwest. He is founder and lead singer of The Long Winters, and writes articles, stories, blogs, and tweets in his spare time (as well as visits with his friends and helps out his fellow musician buddies). He is incredibly nice and an interesting person.

I’ve had the great fortune to meet him and do an interview, which I will be posting at a sooner-but-later date on this blog!!

If you’re a fan of Death Cab For Cutie or The Decemberists, check out the Long Winters and John Roderick!

Anyway, this song is absolutely gorgeous. The words and tune fit together in perfect harmony, and the fact that this version is live just blows my mind! I hope that someday somebody sings this song to me!

Enjoy “Ultimatum” by John Roderick
