Cold Cave - Cherish the Light Years

My buddy Seth introduced me to Cold Cave a few weeks ago and I haven’t been able to stop listening to their albums, particularly their latest, called Cherish the Light Years.  I’ve been very impressed with their sound. It sounds like a mixture of Bauhaus, Tesla Boy, Crystal Castles, and New Order.

Cold Cave stems from the creative veins of Wesley Eisold and are based out of New York City. Eisold is also the former vocalist of hardcore bands Give Up the Ghost/American Nightmare, Some Girls, and XO Skeletons. He is also responsible for the band’s musical direction.

I had a tough time deciding which song to feature on here from Cherish the Light Years. It was a near tie between “Icons of Summer” and “Underworld USA”, but I chose to go with “Icons of Summer” as it was the song that grew on me the most over time.  “Icons of Summer” is the 6th track on Cherish the Light Years.

Finally, please convince my friend Seth to write for the site. He’s a wealth of indie music knowledge.

Early Winters EP

It’s been awhile since I posted a Handpicked feature on here, so I decided it was time to start with something fresh and unexpected.

Today’s selection is the song “Spanish Burn” by Early Winters from their self-titled EP.  For all of you Puscifer fans out there, if the vocals sound familiar, they probably are. Vocals for Early Winters are done by none other than Carina Round, who provided vocals on Puscifer’s latest album, Conditions of My Parole.

Big thanks to Billy Howerdel (A Perfect Circle, aSHES dIVIDE) for posting the music video for the song on Facebook, which premiered today.

Straight No Chaser Christmas

Straight No Chaser Christmas

Happy Holidays! If you are like me, you get annoyed with Christmas showing up before Halloween. But, after Thanksgiving, I welcome a chill in the air, the lights and the old familiar songs of the season. This one just so happens to be my new favorite.

Straight No Chaser is an all male a cappella group that formed in 1998 at Indiana University. Normally, you think glee club in the fifties, but Straight No Chaser blends humor, covers and raw talent together for a very impressive and full sound. Merry Christma-quanz-acha to all!

P.S. There is a throwback to a former handpicked post, too!

Prince - When Doves Cry

You cannot dismiss the idea that Prince’s older music was a big deal way back in the 80s, and still is today.  “When Doves Cry” was the first single from Prince’s 1984 album, Purple Rain, and was the top selling single of that year.

Here’s Prince at his finest.

This always has been, and always will be, my favorite song by Prince.

All of you should be familiar with this song. It’s like… an unwritten law.  I hope that one day I can beat him at a game of basketball.

Enjoy.

Neverending White Lights - Act II: The Blood and the Life Eternal

Today’s song comes from an underrated project called Neverending White Lights. Project mastermind Daniel Victor adds variety to the project by featuring a wide range of singers to contribute their vocals to Victor’s compositions.  “Dove Coloured Sky” comes from the Neverending White Lights’ second album, Act II: The Blood and the Life Eternal and features Electric Mohawk favorite, Jimmy Gnecco, on vocals.

So far, Victor has released three albums under the Neverending White Lights moniker. While I can’t say I’ve heard the latest album, both albums are worth checking out. The first album contains an awesome cover of New Order‘s “Age of Consent” and features 311 frontman, Nick Hexum, on vocals.

Finch - What It Is to Burn

What It Is to Burn by Finch is one of those albums I periodically must revisit.  Every time I listen to the band’s debut album, I am reminded of how diverse each song is, especially for the time it was released (2001). Each song encapsulates its own sub-genre of post-hardcore and alternative rock.

Today’s song comes from that album, and is the first song I had ever heard by Finch. “Awake” is the 6th track from this album and is a great song for anyone who has never heard their music before to get an idea of their musical palate.

Gogol Bordello - Super Taranta!

Gogol Bordello is one of my favorite ethnically driven bands out there. Described as gypsy punk rockers, the band knows how to put on a great show. I saw them a few years ago in Chicago at the Metro with some friends. The opening acts were kind of shitty, but Gogol’s 2+ hour set and encore made up for it.

“Alcohol” comes from Gogol Bordello’s fourth album, Super Taranta! and is the 10th track on the album.

Enjoy!

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Soundtrack Cover

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film soundtrack is one I have been looking forward to since I heard that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross would be writing the score for it.  Much to my suprise, though, would I find out that they would include a badass cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” featurning Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on vocals.

This take on the song is very raw and aggressive, and reminds me very much of Trent’s NIN days.

I only wish this song were much longer.

Enjoy!
