Beat Radio MP3's

You should like this band... I discovered them today and think I love them. Minimal electronic (the occasional bleep here and there, the drum machine, the minimalism)... aside from that, the voice is very indie. It's enjoyable... it's brilliant... the lyrics are interesting, made prettier by the singer's voice... "I saw something in your eyes - it made me smile"... so, here you go. (These are linked from their site...)

"the great big sea" [their forthcoming EP]



Million Miles
Another Loveless Anthem
Everything is Temporary

If you like the music, as you should, visit them at their MySpace page too. maybe add them if you want.

Funky? [defined...]

Sweet... here's a definition of the word funky:

funky... (adj. funkier, funkiest)
Having a moldy or musty smell: funky cheese; funky cellars.
Having a strong, offensive, unwashed odor.
Of or relating to music that has an earthy quality reminiscent of the blues.
Combining elements of jazz, blues, and soul and characterized by syncopated rhythm and a heavy, repetitive bass line.
Earthy and uncomplicated; natural: “At the opposite end of Dallas's culinary spectrum is funky regional fare” (Jacqueline Friedrich).
Characterized by originality and modishness; unconventional: “a bizarre, funky [hotel] dressed up as a ship, with mock portholes and mirrored ceilings over the beds” (Ann Louise Bardach).
Outlandishly vulgar or eccentric in a humorous or tongue-in-cheek manner; campy: “funky caricatures of sexpot glamour” (Pauline Kael)...


Well, no matter whether it's been [properly] defined or [still remains] undefined...

[Right-click and save target as] if you want to hear to hear a funky song... I like it. it's not bluesy at all. so that definition is wrong... or I'm wrong to call it funky sometimes it's bleepy. it's a pop song. but not conventionally... it's psychadelic [and it's very very catchy indeed]. you'll like it. it's called...

Dracula by Marbles

For your information... Marbles are the side-project of Apples in Stereo frontman Robert Schneider...

P.S. I linked it implicitly and explicitly so that it can be found easily. some of you won't realise that I really did mean Let's get funky!
