Music of the Week #1

OK, OK, so I failed for last Sunday. I'm making up for this week. :)

Music of the week ending Sunday May 17th, 2009.
  1. Does It Offend You, Yeah?
  2. Bloc Party
  3. Danger
  4. Nine Inch Nails
  5. Incubus
Does It Offend You, Yeah? is a great band referred to me by Marli. I'm very late on picking up on these guys, their album hast been out since March 2008 and contains a number of tracks that have made some intense appearances in other media, such as Fast & Furious 4, American Teen (movie) and more. I am quite addicted to the album "You Have No Idea What You're Getting Yourself Into". Favourite tracks include: "Being Bad Feels Pretty Good", "With a Heavy Heart" and "Weird Science".

Bloc Party - I can't stop listening to the Intimacy album. I haven't gotten around to listening to the Intimacy Remix album... yet. Top tracks for Bloc Party this week are (still) "Halo" and "Biko".

Danger wins this week's top track with the new single I found on his MySpace named "07h46". His mix of 80's style synth with today's flare of electronica is mind gobbling and oh-so addicting. Other great tracks include "11h30 (DatA Remix)" and "Revolte at 22h10".

Nine Inch Nails - This stat may be a little flawed as I was listening to the NIN|JA EP released to promote the tour NIN is on with Jane's Addiction and Street Sweeper Social Club. And mostly I've been listening to the Street Sweeper Social Club singles on the EP named "Clap for the Killers" and "The Oath".

Incubus - My golden oldie and one of the highest ranking artists on my last.fm account. My favourites of their entire discography include "Echo", "Here in my Room", "Dig", "Southern Girl" and "Wish You Were Here".

What were your top artists of the week?

  1. Nice run-down! "You Have No Idea..." was my favorite album of last year.

    As for my top albums of the week, according to Last.fm they are:

    1) Director - Solely based on the awesomeness that is a track called "Sing It Without A Tune"

    2) Baptized In Blood - Think new-age Megadeath, so what would have happened if Metallica never wussied out

    3) Kate Voegele - A hotter and more talented mashup of Kelly Clarkson & Regina Spektor

    4) Data Select Party - Pretty much the funnest indie I've heard all year. The guitar is so amazing.

    5) BM Linx - fans of innerpartysystem/bloc party/ elctro rock are going to flip out over this band.
