Music reviews you can set your watch to.

I remember the days when the concept of boredom was attainable, I guess once you loose that ability you truly have become an adult.

There was also a time that I felt like I was on the pulse of new music, and in my later years I realize that I am not in touch any more. So to help myself and those of you on the ‘flare I am going to try and share some goodness that I found on a semi regular basis. If you like great if not you’re a commie.

The local radio station for “New Rock” is laughable so I spend a lot of time listening to the Canadian equivalent, here’s a stand out.

Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker (USS)

Two guys out of the Toronto area, one on guitar and vocals the other DJ / Hypeman. Their stuff is catchy, good guitar grooves and beats. These two samples are off their first release Welding the C:/

Ubiquitous Synergery Seeker: Hollowpoint Sniper Hypberpole

Ubiquitous Synergery Seeker: 2 15/16

Reminds me a bit of the 90s group God Lives Underwater, they developed a sweet blend of electronic/sample driven guitar laiden stuff on their second album Life in the so called Space Age.

If you dig this check out some of their new stuff off of their first full length album Questimation.

    Good idea, Kevin. I’ve been listening to the “classic rocker” here in G-vegas and lately they’ve been edging into the 90’s music I used to hear all the time in high school. Scary. But, I guess that’s what our parents felt like the first time they heard “Satisfaction” referred to as “classic rock”.

    I’ve never been what I consider on the “bleeding edge” of music, but when I was in college it was nearly unavoidable to come across new material- especially since I was involved with the radio station on campus for a couple of years. I’ve got quite a few CD’s of artists that came out back then that never made it big (at least, not that I ever heard of) as well as a whole stack of 45’s of 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s music that you’ll never hear on that Format classic rocker.

    Sue and I were discussing this one time — we’ve gotten to the point in our lives where we buy new albums by bands we already like (Less Than Jake, Tom Waits, Firewater, etc.), but don’t actually look for new music any more.

    I suppose this same transition explains why my mother had no albums from post-1970s artists when I was a kid.

    I’m waiting for the next Dire Straights album. Should be kick ass!

    @ Matt

    I definitely see a cut off point in my own collection. I suppose you go from being a kid having disposable income and you reach a point that you don’t need to buy 4-6 cd (albums) a month.

    “I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.”

    God bless the interweb for making it possible to sample and get music without having to pay for it.

    Incidently, Pitt, we were just listening to WRPI on our way through Albania. Some crazy old guy playing jazz and stuff. Funny.

    At least it wasn’t Kevin and I bantering back and forth about who likes the Constitution more. God. I still have some of those old Aircheck tapes.
