Yes for those who care we did manage to score us some Comicon badges! That means for two weeks in July we will be traveling down the coast through California in another epic road trip of win! This one is supposed to be the big hollywood promo event for new things coming up in the year so here’s hoping we get to see lots of stars! More to come as we get closer to July. And that’s not all the traveling we are doing this year either. For Xmas/New Years we are all (yes all, as in the whole family) are going to Vegas for a week! i can hardly wait!
Now for some none travel stuff: (Feel free to unsubscribe if this shit annoys you to know end).
So it’s been a good long while since I’ve posted anything music related on my blog here and over the past few weeks I’ve stumbled onto two very good Indie Bands I’d like to share. They are great to listen too and I can proudly say they are the first two albums I’ve bought in ages.
First up we have Gotye!
Wouter “Wally” De Backer (born 21 May 1980), also known professionally by his stage name Gotye, (pronounced Go-te-yae), is a Belgian-Australian multi-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter. The name “Gotye” is derived from “Gaultier” (or “Gautier” or “Gauthier”,) the French equivalent of “Wouter” (“Walter” in English.) Gotye’s voice has been compared to Sting and Peter Gabriel, some fans even going to the extent of mixing Gotye’s vocals with tracks by The Police.
He has released three studio albums independently and one album featuring remixes of tracks from his first two albums. De Backer is also one-third of Melbourne indie-pop trio The Basics, who have independently released three studio albums and numerous other titles since 2002.
Grab a listen to his new album Making Mirrors.
Next up on the list is FUN.
Fun. is an American indie pop band based in New York City, New York that was formed by Nate Ruess, formerly of The Format. After the 2008 breakup of The Format, Ruess then formed Fun with Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train. Fun has released two albums, their debut Aim and Ignite in 2009 and their latest Some Nights in February, 2012.
The band is best known for their hit single “We Are Young” featuring Janelle Monae, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts. The song marks the first time in over a decade a multi-member rock band made a Billboard debut with the #1 spot in the Hot 100 since Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me” in December 2001.
Some Nights is there latest Album and is it ever good.
