Blur’s new tunes

Sorry for the absence of my blog yesterday everyone (nobody), I had one all lined up (I didn’t) and I was really annoyed I wasn’t able to get on here and blog my little heart out (I really didn’t give a shit).

Okay, Blur have got two new songs and I had a listen and this is what I think of them. I think they’re alright.  Well, I think one of em’ is, I think I will have to grow to like the other one, like a boy would have to grow to accept his step-dad.

I really like, under the westway, at the moment I’m in to quite mellow music with melody and quite quiet and easy listening and that’s what this songs is. It’s pleasant to listen to, and I think the piano in it which Damon is playing of course is really (I know it sounds simple) nice. I think it show’s how far blur have come, because they are quite the accomplished musicians now with some great records under their belt. I think they’re probably one of the best British bands.

Next we have ‘The puritan’, the lyrics I think are great, they make me think which is one of the things lyrics should do. I’m not keen on the noise that’s going on behind the lyrics though, I don’t think it sounds very good, but I do feel that this will grow on me because I’ve only listened to it twice and both times I’ve listened to it with the sound down, and I think it needs to be blasting out.

But two okay songs by Blur, which are both very different. Have a listen.


Dirty Little Lies – Imitation Game – 20-03-12- AW

Sorry it’s been a couple of days been Weymouth for a party, playing football manager, loads of fucking work and just general time wasting so those are the reasons I haven’t posted anything in a while.

Just recently got on to soundcloud, took me ages to get it because I don’t like socialising with people and there’s a lot of twat’s online but I finally got it. Soundcloud is a good way to find bands, artisist, music producers etc, in your area so I’m finding all these pretty cool bands online and some of em’ have good tunes.

Found this band while I was searching through, and I liked them not only because their name is ‘Dirty Little Lies’ and it’s close to ‘Dirty Pretty Things’ but because I think there music has that raw sound about it that a lot of bands lack. The song I’ve chose to looks at ‘Imitation Game’ has that raw guitar sound, no silly effects or anything like that, the drums are loud and catchy along with the riff, just got everything I and everybody should want from a song, short and sweet and also because their from Walsall makes em’ that bit better. The lyrics are also pretty good, not too wordy though which works in their favour I believe.

Not only have they got this song, they got some others that are worth having a listen to because they’re pretty good, if you like The Enemy that sort of stuff you should get a kick out of this.
