Koncert is lesz, május 10, A38.
Not much is shared about this band (guy) and I don’t speak French to understand their (his) Facebook page. Nevertheless I find their (his) electronic music quite funny. Their (his) whole EP is free to listen & download on Last.fm and Soundcloud.[audio:http://sesam.hu/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Edouard-AD-The-Weird-Thing.mp3|titles=The Weird Thing]
Rarely do I get music recommendations on Last.fm and those few are mostly self-marketers. Like this time when Bellerafont (age 20, from Ukraine), the frontman of My Personal Murderer sent his latest song, She’s Dead. Don’t ask why, I haven’t been listening to this band ever before.[audio:http://sesam.hu/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/My-Personal-Murderer-Shes-Dead.mp3|titles=She’s Dead]
Regardless, I liked what I heard. All their songs are fascinatingly depressive with lyrics of doom and soft guitar-driven melodies. They live on Facebook instead of having a website and most of their material is free to download from Last.fm.
As a bonus here’s a video for Danger Dancer (2011):
This one came from my newest last.fm-ified friend, Midnite. Poets of the Fall play really pleasant alternative rock and are from Finland. Their single Late Goodbye appeared in Max Payne 2 as the title song. Check out Maybe Tomorrow is a Better Day from Carnival of Rust.[audio:http://sesam.hu/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Poets-of-the-Fall-Maybe-Tomorrow-is-a-Better-Day.mp3|titles=Maybe Tomorrow is a Better Day]
I was told to see them live one has to travel North, because they won’t do gigs elsewhere other than Scandinavia and Russia. Prepare your ushankas.
A 5-piece band from Sheffield, UK, producing energetic British rock. They are reputedly fierce live, but to make sure of that you have to be in the country. Only one song is free to download; a few others are available to listen full length on Last.fm.[audio:http://sesam.hu/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/The-Violet-May-What-You-Say.mp3|titles=What You Say]
