My Music Monday

With me working at home, I don't get in the car much anymore - and when I do, it is usually to an airport. Long distance with the radio are almost nil and we don't have great radio stations in Cleveland to begin with.

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.
