Because it’s a Submarine kind of day and we don’t get much Arctic Monkeys music up on this site — here’s Alex Turner with Piledriver Waltz. I suggest renting the film too, it’s definitely a pick-me-upper on a cloudy summer day.
If you’re wondering why I’m posting the video for that song in that Hyundai commercial, it’s because Vancouver’s throwing a big party at Stanley Park and The New Pornographers are playing 🙂 They’re actually just one of the bands from a long list of performers showing up for Vancouver’s 3-day celebration of the city’s 125th anniversary. So if I were you and aren’t doing anything this Saturday night — I’d head on over to Stanley Park, get a $5 dollar bag of mini donuts, an ice cold lemonade, and bask under the Vancouver sun while I listen to some awesome live music.
At last something new! Well, new-ish. Although the video might be a year old, it’s been more than six months since my last post. I thought I’d throw in something by the Shout Out Louds to hark my return, especially since the first lines in this song rings true to what this blog and I have. Before I wax poetic on how I always come back, let’s take a moment and soak in the wonder of Shout Out Louds — the underwater version. There’s always beauty and grace in underwater shots — just not when you’re trying to sing.
Here’s a little bit of trivia for you readers out there: did you know that the first List Addicts was posted way back in 2008 as a New Year’s songs list? Bet you didn’t know that – and rightly so, since this is practically useless trivia. Putting the year into perspective though, I can’t believe that this site has been chugging away that long and is still alive today (considering that it’s basically held together by duct tape and craft glue). With probably one of the roughest years I’ve ever had, I consider it an internet miracle 🙂 Since I’m not really good at compiling the best of the year albums – which might probably be the reason why this site isn’t high on the popularity […]
If you were a kid growing up in Britain, you would probably remember a little old animated film called “The Snowman” — a touching holiday story that’s basically an existentialist version of ‘Frosty the Snowman’. The Maccabees grew up with it and loved it so much that they made their own version of the moving and haunting song in the film called Walking In The Air. Originally sung, choir-boy style with an orchestral accompaniment, The Maccabees bring their own indie music touch to it, with Orlando Week’s unique vocal styling and the group’s amazing rock instrumentation (particularly the drums – it’s absolutely perfect!). You may want to get in the mood for watching the film again (sans the David Bowie intro) and bawl your eyes […]
