    We Bad, Bad to the Bone 

    Almost done…

    DAMN ! That TV Show is driving me completely insane!! I’ve watched 3 seasons of Breaking Bad in the last week and it is EPIC. This whole story of a boring father/chemistry teacher starting to cook meth and run over people with his car after being diagnosed with lung cancer… It’s pretty crazy, but MAN do I like it. Anyways, apart from the TV show itself, I’ve heard some pretty sweet songs in a few episodes that I wanted to share with you guys. So here it is

    Waiting Around To Die – The Be Good Tanyas

    Magic Arrow – Timber Timbre

    If you guys haven’t heard it already, The Shivers that I talked about before leaving on my epic journey around the world released a new album called More. As always, it is special, a unique kind of sound that only this band can produce. It’s worth a listen I think, didn’t find a song like Beauty, but there is still some quality sound in there.

    Love Is In The Air – The Shivers

    While I was gone, a lot of bands I love released some albums that are not bad at all (Lykke Li, Radiohead, Bon Iver, blablabla), but I was very shocked to learn that the bassist of TV on the Radio died of lung cancer 9 days after the release of their last album Nine Types Of Light. Good album in general, as I said for The Shivers there’s nothing I fell in love straight away with like in the times of Staring at the Sun, but I’m still enjoying it ! Very sad for the death of Gerard Smith… the band will never be the same with a member gone for good…  R.I.P. my friend…

    Killer Crane – TV on the Radio

    La finale, it’s always important to finish STRONG, so there you have it. The strongest, a classic past, present and future.

    Riders On The Storm – The Doors

    Goodbye America 

    3 days left…

    Haven’t posted in a while… One reason : trip. Leaving for about 6 months around the Mediterranean sea with a backpack and myself. Can’t really think straight since I’m leaving in 4 days and the situation in Egypt (I’m landing there) is getting pretty crazy. Will I see Egypt ? I dearly hope so.

    Beauty – The Shivers

    Here is a song I found on another blog that I find… well… magnificent. Nothing special about the voice, nothing special about the melody, but it just fits together so beautifully. Here is the blog too : SYNESTHESIA. Photographies and music… enough said. Here is a little myspace profile for those who don’t know The Shivers. Their other songs are not so different from Beauty, so go ahead and have a look.

    Your Head Is On Fire – Broken Bells

    Three words : Too Much Weed.

    Kinda had an overdose (not that it’s possible) in the last weeks… But damn when I listen to that song, it’s just… I don’t know I have the feeling that I’m floating IN the song…

    Broken Bells really make me go crazy with their insane album. I REALLY hope that they are going to show up one day in Montreal and I won’t know and just end up passing by the Metropolis and hear a scalper saying in a low voice (I don’t get it, are they trying to be subtile ? DOESN’T WORK!) “Hey, Broken Bells tickets, the show is sold out, want one?”. I’ll be looking at him with a spliff in my mouth : “How much…?” thinking of a price around 100$. “Well, just give me the rest of that blunt and I’ll give you my last one”… Hell of a deal !

    Coming Home – Elmore James

    Aaaaah the good ol’ sound of blues. Will never get tired of this music. Here the long gone Elmore James sings us a song about the way back home. YES, I will be coming back home and I hope that on this day, I will know…

    Adios

    P.S. I’ve always been in love with cello…

      Thank you so much for posting The Shivers. I’m now obsessed.

      It was your description, the band name, and the song title, that made me listen. This song gripped me at the first strum.

        An isane song, one of the only one I’m listening to while on my trip.
