My Music Monday
So new music to me might not be new to others. And finding new stuff that I like is fewer and farther in between. So, I don't think it's cheating if I stumble across a good song from someone else's blog. I'll always give them credit.
Take seeing the video / hearing the song from Joe.My.G-d. a week or so ago. I think he posted it mostly because he had met the band and he did go on about the video.
To me, the video is ok - nothing too great, but at least interesting to look at. For me, it's all about the music.
The Presets (nope, never heard of the before), are decent - at least with this song: "Ghosts".
It is one of the more original songs I've heard in a while. I'm sure with the right remix, it would be good in the clubs, but what do I know, I haven't been to a bar that plays dance music in quite.some.time. I'm an old fart.
But even without some 12" extended mix, I like the tribal / Aboriginal beat / vocal that is incorporated into the song. Actually, it is what makes the song.
I've sampled other stuff from the Presets on iTunes and it all seems a little more generic to me. Granted, only a few songs and only for 90 seconds, so I know it's not a great sampling, but I don't see me rushing out to buy anything of theirs. Maybe not even "Ghosts".
Still....a pretty original and interesting song.
