Cannibal Queen

Tell It to the Volcano

I’m supposed to be writing a paper right now, which is why I’m so inspired to post on my blog instead. Don’t worry, it’s a 500 word paper. I could literally write that in about half an hour. And I will.

But for now, I just made a new playlist for when I’m walking or driving to school of my favorite new songs. I keep wanting to talk about bands that I’ve already posted about, which is part of the reason I haven’t done a new post for a few days. I just don’t want to listen to other bands right now!

I’ve been listening to Wolf Gang, The Temper Trap, Jukebox the Ghost, Wilco, Two Door Cinema Club, and Miike Snow all week. I know I haven’t posted about some of those, but they’re just too popular, darn those bands. I’ll make an exception sometime.

But today I will make one exception, I’m going to talk about a band I’ve talked about before. Many of you may not recognize this as one of the bands I’ve talked about because I talked about them in my very first post. Drum roll, please:

Cannibal Queen, by Miniature Tigers

I’ve talked about the band, but the song is different. Last time I talked about Boomerang, which is also a great song!

This music video is one that I highly endorse! It is hilarious! Click on the title to watch it, it is worth every second.

I am just so in love with this band! I love Charlie Brand, their lead singer, because he just looks so . . . I don’t know, what would you call his expression in this video? Apathetic? Drugged? It’s hard to tell.

But their songs have such a double meaning in them, and they’re all so peppy! I mean, Cannibal Queen is a very upbeat song, unless you listen to the lyrics, or watch the video. Watch it, you’ll see what I mean.

Very great band all around, and I just recently acquired their album F O R T R E S S. It is fantastic. I love them. How many times can I say that? I love them.

Make me happy, give them a listen, tell me what you think of their music video? Also, if you have any good adjectives for his expression, please share! Thanks a bundle!

I can’t think of a title . . .

If you like scary movies, do yourself a favor and watch the mini-series “Harper’s Island.” Terrifying and hauntingly satisfying. There are so many characters in that show that I love way more than I thought from the first episode! Darn you The Canadian for introducing me to that show!

Also, remember that great time that is so far gone when no one knew Fun.? And then they came out with “We Are Young” and suddenly everyone knew who they were. I mean, I went to their concert a couple years ago. And it was free! That’s how unknown they were. Just kidding, it was some kind of student concert at ASU and there was also Motion City Soundtrack, so it’s not like they couldn’t have made people pay for that. Anyways, I’ve been listening to their new album today, and I just keep thinking of a little kid with a new toy and he just uses it to death. That new toy is autotune. Why, fun., why? But in the song “Stars” I actually like it, I think because it’s so stylized.

So instead of doing a featured artist, I’m going to tell you what I’ve bought music-wise lately. Oh yeah, insight into my life. What music will I spend money on? Well, a small amount of money. I will only buy it if it’s a 99 cent album or a 25 cent song. So! In the spirit of college income (0$) here is what I’ve bought all this year:

 

25 cent songs:

Too Close, by Alex Clare

Tongue Tied, by Grouplove (one of my favorite songs right now)

It’s Time, by Imagine Dragons

Good Time, by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen (I’ll admit, this was mostly curiosity. I mean, that’s worth 25 cents right? Plus, it’s so catchy. Darn this song!)

Enter Sandman, by Metallica (I can’t believe I didn’t have this in my music library before now. I mean, a person has to have at least one Metallica song.)

Swimming in the Flood, by Passion Pit (One of my faves by them. Plus I had a 2$ credit with Amazon.)

Boomerang, by Miniature Tigers (I’ve talked about this before. My first post, actually. Good times.)

 

99 cent albums:

Some Nights, by Fun.

Katy Perry (Don’t judge me.)

Making Mirrors, by Gotye (Someone That I Used to Know is not their only good song. In fact, it’s not even their best song.)

Love is a Four Letter Word, by Jason Mraz

El Camino, by the Black Keys

My Head Is An Animal, by Of Monsters and Men

Ceremonials, by Florence + the Machine (One of the greatest female vocalists of our generation)

What We Saw From the Cheap Seats, by Regina Spektor (Another of the greatest vocalists of our generation)

Lights, by Ellie Goulding (My girl crush)

 

I also got a ton of free albums and songs because sometimes Amazon just rocks! But I’m not going to list those, because there’s like a billion. Also, every time I write Amazon I always want to put a ‘g’ at the end. There is no such thing as Amazong. If there was, it would be a verb.

But there it is. All my music purchases. Actually, that’s not true, I got an iTunes gift certificate for Christmas. Dang it! Maybe later.
