I wasn’t sure if I was going to post this. I don’t know what to think about itt és most (here and now). One one hand it has some catchy sing-along tunes, on the other many songs are downright disturbing and full of unexpected experimental sounds. I’d wager not many would listen through the whole set. (I, for one, didn’t either.) Although if you speak Hungarian, some of the lyrics are quite interesting and clever.
This is what the Nyerges Gábor Ádám said about his work:
itt és most (here and now) is a successor of the 2009 album akkor és ott (then and there). recording started in Summer 2010 because I was in a bad mood because I was happy. guilt and the like. although it’s true I used some soundbits from before. nem rossz hely (not a bad place) was finished first, and since “many good men at this not a bad place are not afraid” everything went smoothly. I jotted down everything in a big red book, lyrics and tabs as well. in the meantime everything that was shit then and there at the time went worse, not to leave me without inspiration, only by then I didn’t give a rat’s ass. some numbers that started out as band versions ended up here as well, because there isn’t really a band anymore and they fit in. stuff.
Unlike my previous music posts, chances are, you probably haven’t heard about this band. Vanity & Jokes is the solo project of Udo Pesch and at the time of writing this he had a grand total of 652 plays on Last.fm. Regardless, I think he has an interesting voice.
While on Soundcloud you might want to check out their other songs which they describe as “two-chord lo-fi songs for one guitar and one-chord lo-fi songs for two guitars”. Szerelmes voltam (I was in love) was recorded in a bathroom (apparently). Hó Márton és a Jégkorszak has a blog and a Facebook page as well.
Egyszálgitáros (néha zongorás) lány a hálószobazene-frontról. Feldolgozásai mellett van néhány saját száma is már. Szerintem imádnivaló.
Azt írja magáról a Youtube oldalán, hogy négyéves kora óta zongorázik, és tizenegy éven át vett klasszikus zongoraórákat. A gitárral már autodidakta módon ismerkedett, az énektudás meg csak úgy megvolt, sosem tanították, csak dalolászott a fürdőben.
A zenélés egyelőre hobbi: mesterfokon tanul a Cornell Egyetemen, ami testvérek között is Ivy League.
