Obscure Sound

May 30, 2008

As a blogger with not much time and fairly un-eloquent language when describing music/gigs, I love when I come across music blogs that are well written and have some excellent music content.

To go along with the already great sites of Nialler9 and GraveyardshiftShane I have recently come across another two Irish bloggers who have some great posts about music and gigs. So head on over to No Ordinary Fool and Hardcore For Nerds when you have a few minutes!

They really do have great content but the best new find over the last couple of months is from a post on Captain Obvious’s page:

Obscure Sound is simply a superb site and while I recognize a few of the groups there is such a plethora of new artists that I feel like I have overdosed over the last couple of days! Even a few pages into his archive and there are at least 8 groups that I will just have to get the album- I am nearly afraid to go back any further in case I am found asleep on the keyboard from pure exhaustion and the Obscure Sound banner branded into the monitor for eternity!  So if you have the time head on over to him but be warned that you will be there for more than just a few minutes.


Nada Surf and Captain Obvious

January 12, 2008

Was on the move listening to the Kiosk this morning so not sure if I got the name of a band correct for one of the tunes played.  While googling I came across an excellent blog for music and movies called Captain Obvious.  The tune that I think I heard is Weightless by Nada Surf and he has a write up here with links for two tracks that you can download.  See These Bones is an excellent tune and Weightless is quite good as well so look forward to the album which is released on the 5th of February. 

A good YouTube for Always Love
