personal matt & kim post #23019789

A lot of exciting concerts coming up this spring/summer. One that I am especially looking forward to are Matt & Kim who will play at Magnet Club May 23rd.
Here's their new video for "Lessons Learned"

You know you are an artiste extraordinaire when journalists & blogger have to come up with new words to define your sound. Right now I make up "squirky" to describe the sound of Metronomy. From the gazillion remixes being posted on blogs every minute I think I could always identify such a "squirky" Metronomy remix. But this remix of Late Of The Pier's "The Bears Are Coming" I just found on tastes like caramel is different. Rather minimal, very un-metronomy. And I'm lovin it! The quirky sound from the original plus the Prince-like (...acid rain) voice... metronomynal!

time to predict the future

This very morning my coffee grounds told me the following:

"Of his knowledge a man should never boast,
Rather be sparing of speech
When to his house a wiser comes:
Seldom do those who are silent
Make mistakes; mother wit
Is ever a faithful friend."

And then something that I did not entirely understand: "Sprengjuhöllin"

So I googled it. What I found might be one of the most promising bands of 2009.
Sprengjuhöllin are from Iceland, so far all their songs were in icelandic, but they translated some of them now. I saw an interview at Iceland Airwaves in 2006 where they already seemed to think about changing their name to "hall of explosions", "hall of stars" or >ehem< "starcastle". I hope they won't.
