goldfarts asked: Listening to any new music that you've really enjoyed lately?
I have to admit I’ve been in a little bit of a music slump recently.
I listened to artpop and was not impressed. (Does anyone else want to follow up the word “Fashion” with “put on your red shoes and dance”? It’s especially noticeable in the live version featuring RuPaul that’s a little slower than the album version). Speaking of RuPaul - Glamazon, Cover Girl and The Beginning are all really fun songs.
I’ve been listening to some music from musicals a bit. There’s a guy on YouTube Nick Pitera who does some amazing covers. I’d re-blogged his one man Les Mis sometime last year but only just found his Phantom. His female roles are sometimes a little scratchy but sometimes they’re exactly where they need to be. I’m almost more impressed when he sings two male parts together and keeps the roles sounding distinct.
A little bit ago I’d been listening to a fair bit of The Presets. Some of they’re stuff goes to far into weird for my tastes but a lot of it is great - If I Know You, This Boy’s in Love, Aeons and a fair bit off their third CD are also very good. Haven’t listened recently, may have over done it when I found them though.
