Manchester Orchestra is a fairly new acquaintance to me, but when the band released an acoustic version of their latest album I was definitely hooked! The original version of this track is also very good, but the reimagined version is a step up, and perfect for the season we currently find ourselves in on the northern hemisphere.
Is it only me, or was it ages ago since a cover made it as track of the week? Well, either way that’s exactly what today’s track is. And it’s not just acoustic, it’s skacoustic! This great up-tempo track was included on the 2011 Reel Big Fish album titled just that and is a real treat. With vocals that are good enough, some nice brass and really good guitar playing I just can’t withstand the charm of this track.
Pop can be great, and remixes of pop tracks can be even greater! Since I have already made it very clear that covers are something I enjoy a lot, the fact that I like remixed tracks shouldn’t come as a shock. Lady Gaga is a true pop star, and someone I find myself listening to more that I should admit. This remix of her single Telephone is a really great club remix of a fun track that always gets me in a good mood.
Apart from music, another big interest of mine is movies. Naturally, music in movies is also something I’m very much into. I have a few favorite composers, one being Danny Elfman (I know, shocking, right!?). Of all the music mr. Elfman has composed, Alice’s Theme from Alice in Wonderland is one of the tracks I consider to be absolutely amazing.
This week has been crunch time at work, meaning I’ve listened to a lot of high energy electronic music. When I’m looking for something a little extra fun my go to artist at the moment is Savant. This track has a nice break in the middle which makes it extra effective.
