This week, I have discovered a Norwegian band called Kintama. This four-peice band is inspired by Kurosawa films, and their album “The Silencer” tells the tale of a fictional video game filled with underground Tokyo, samurai, ninjas, and mob lords.
The song I’m featuring here, “She Likes it Vindaloo” is track seven, after the initial character development, and into the action of the story.
Kintama has a sound like American hard alternative rock, like the Foo Fighters.
This week, I am talking about a band called “ones and zeroes”, or more exactly, 0N3S & Z3R0S. This three-peice is from Northern California, and has a unique sound, melding the sounds of electronica loops and effects with traditional instrumentation and alt-grunge vocals. After you sample “Mind Run Free”, Click on the “more by this artist” button and make sure to hit “Nothing Left” and “Rose” while you are checking out the 0N3S & Z3R0S.
This week, I’ve gone through my catalog of music on Amie Street, and found some fun stuff… Evil Weiner may be dubiously named, but their songs are just laid back and fun… The lead guitar has a bit of a surf-guitar sound, and the vocals and lyrics have a self-effacing, life-embracing quality that is in good fun.
I’m highlighting the Space Girl song, but don’t forget to hit the “more by this artist” button here. My other favorites from Evil Weiner are Turn Green, Topsy Turvy, and you absolutely must give a listen to Laughed at My Heart. Fun stuff!
The band reminds me of other fun bands like The Refreshments, Southern Culture on the Skids, and They Might Be Giants.
