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!

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!

English: Image of Max McElligott from British ...

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
