Audio Tragedi 10 Tracks to Hear this week [16/05/2010]

1. Bullet For My Valentine – Fever

Maybe its the fact I love bullet, regardless of that i think you should agree that this song is momentous. The fast but catchy riff, the incredibly graceless lyrics. Everything about this song fits perfectly.

You can read my full review of the whole new album “fever” in the next few weeks!

2. Foals – Miami

This song is so out of place its incredible, the bass is what makes this song sound so out of place. And I love it! The little guitar hooks the latino style of the drums. This misfit song is perfect., in every way.

You can read my full track by track review of “full life forever” next month!

3. Projected Twin – White Wedding (Cover)

Our own drum tutor Slabop recommended this for our tracks to hear. Im loving the vocals on this, very powerful, in turn ; making the song more powerful than it is originally, the solo inbetween catches me completely and incredibly of guard. Their album is out soon, and i am currently remixing one of their other songs. Lets see if we don’t see him return to my blogs very soon!

4. Kids In Glass Houses ft. Frankie Sandford – Undercover Lover

You have to admire this song, its simple and to the point. This is why kids in glass houses are in my opinion one of the best pop punk bands out there right now. Frankie just adds to the admiralty.

5. Lynyrd Skynyrd ft. Rob Zombie – Floyd

My love for southern rock shows in this song, the slide effect on this song is incredibly catchy however typical it might be in a country song like this one And with zombie added to the mix this song is a chunk of the slow life.

6. BlessTheFall – Hey Baby, Heres The Song You Wanted

This song, from beginning to end is brilliantly. You can’t really credit me for calling it brilliant but let me explain. All of the guitar hooks. Add in the synth effect with it and you have got yourself a new wave hardcore band.

7. Crystal Castles – Vietnam

Wether its the ominous and rather scary drone of alice glass’ voice. Or the sounding of complete hopelessness. This song couldn’t not be on my playlist this week. It definetly paints a picture and if the songs title tells me anything on what this song entails; then i know exactly what picture its painting.

You can read my full review of Crystal Castles new album soon!

8. Lady Gaga – Poker Face (LLG vs GLG Remix)

You have to listen to this song to realize its potential. And when its lady gaga that just makes it that much better…

9. Brigade – Magneto

I know, I know. This song is about to years old, but when you go to dust of your collection you forget how good some of the old classics are. The continuos onslaught of the guitar and of course simpson jr. signature vocals makes the track.

10. Beyonce – Why Don’t You Love Me

Forget everything you think you know about Beyonce. Sasha Fierce is gone, the ‘survivor’ is no more. Now we’re left with BB Homemaker. Backed by funk-pop beats, she wails with bunny boiler aplomb, “Why don’t you love me?”, proving she’s just as messed-up as the rest of us. She just looks better.

Audio Tragedi Music Review

You Me At Six – Hold Me Down (2010)

Label: Virgin, Epitaph

See we have a problem with bands like this; they have a good catchy rhythm to them, lyrically brilliant… But I could be saying exactly the same thing about every other new wave punk rock band thats come out in the past four years. But lets forget that You Me At Six sound like other bands, lets look at this album standing on its own, as an original piece of music. You need to have a hearing problem if you don’t like the sound of “Underdog”, with its big leads and bigger than life chorus. A typical story is the album on a whole sounds like one big prepubescent cry for help. Their next single “liquid confidence” sounds like its been taken straight out a glee episode with the backing vocals. You made your points about your lady friends in “Take of your colours” why not leave it at that? To be honest if I was to try and sell this album i would sell it as “Take Of Your Colours Part 2”. I would rather you spend your money on their debut than this album, as the new material is simply not new, at least with colours the sound was fresh back then. Accidental Infidelity is to damn good a song to pass up however, having said that, YMAS need to go back to the drawing board, forget about trying to connect with your audience with songs about partying and girls, as you did that in your last album and you connected well. In my conclusion this album is great, its catchy. But i would not waste my time in buying it when they have a perfectly good album that sounds just like this in 2008.

RATING: 4/10

For Fans Of: Kids In Glass Houses, Boys Like Girls, Forever The Sickest Kids

Songs To Download: Underdog, Accidental Infidelity, Trophy Eyes
