I’m a bit behind on posting about this, but my internet access in Europe was limited the last 2 months. The Texas family band Eisley released their fourth full-length, Currents, late May. I’ve been a fan of theirs since high school, but I always thought of them as a band of great singles and OK records. I found Currents, however, surprisingly enjoyable as an album. Good bands further develop their sound with each new release, and Currents showcases a newfound melodic maturity in Eisley’s music. They have yet to release any music videos for the record, but you can find the audio from the title track below.
The Athens-based musical duo Marsheaux has been producing provocative synth-pop for almost a decade. I was introduced to them this summer when hearing their April 2013 album Inhale. Their recent work represents the most progressive trends in the genre. Below is the video for “Can You Stop Me?” from the same release. Also check out their single “Summer” which dropped this month.
After taking 6 weeks off to study for the bar exam and travel in Europe, we’ve put our priorities back in order. We’ll be blogging again about music and pop culture. Sorry, we got a little sidetracked there. We have a lot of new stuff coming your way soon. But in the meantime, enjoy this moment between Premier Vladimir and a puppy.
For the two or three of you that actually visit our website, if you haven’t noticed we’re on a little bit of a break right now. One of us is busy studying for the bar exam (which somehow seemed worth it three years ago) and the other is studying abroad in a far away, exotic place called…”Europe.” Anyway, we’re a little sidetracked this summer but we should be up and running again sometime in August. So come back then. Or don’t. But if you don’t Premier Vladimir will still be sad.
