Sorry!! I know my posts have been pretty spotty lately. And I won’t make promises to do more. Sorry, but let’s be honest!
The reason I’ve been absent lately is that I had to pack up all my stuff, drive all day, see some old friends and family, then drive some more so I could make it up to school. Whew! I’m exhausted thinking about it. I actually am tired right now, but I can’t be tired! I’ve been tasked with being social and making friends, so no staying in at night for me.
Anyways, the wait is worth it! Today’s artist is so great! I loved driving my Mom and Dad’s cars because they both have satellite radio. It was wonderful. And then I had to go back to my car where the radio hardly works.
Anywho, today’s song:
Stay and Defend, by Wolf Gang (link)
I love this song! I’ve been listening to it a lot lately! I’ve listened to some of their other songs too, and they’re almost equally good. But my opinion is that this is the best one!
Maybe it’s the happy piano, maybe the guiding bass line, maybe it’s Max’s great falsetto. (This picture is Max, which should make you like this band automatically. (Also, he plays the glockenspiel, so . . .)) You guys know how much I like a good falsetto. Which is interesting . . . I just watched a documentary called “The Science of Sex Appeal” and it had some interesting stuff in it. One thing they talked about is that statistically girls are more drawn to deeper voices. Apparently I’m part of the minority, because I love a good falsetto!!
Also, I mentioned the happy piano, but let’s give that a little more attention. It’s basically the same chords the whole song, one set for the softer part of the song and one set for the chorus, but I just love it! It just seems so happy!
Also, I love the clapping. I love any song that has good clapping it. Like that song by The Format! I can’t remember the name of it, I’ll get back to you if I find out. But The Format is Nate Reuss’s former band before he formed Fun. And I just found out that one of Fun.’s members is from Steel Train. Also a great band! I posted about them right? I’m too lazy to look it up right now, but I’m pretty sure I did.
But Wolf Gang has opened for some great bands! And big ones! But a cool band, and I wish them much success!! Listen to that song, give ’em some support! And thanks for supporting my blog! We’re closing in on 1000 views! It might not be a million, but I’m pretty proud!
Many thanks, Rawrry
