Bye, Geroni

How To Be So Real

I just wanted to say that this blog is officially over. Is that bad news? NO! As we now post at:
How To Be So Real
Right now it’s me, Ryan, and our friend Simon. We would like two (give or take) more people! The idea of this new blog is to be way cleaner than Geroni and have more updates. So far so good I’d say. I also want to say that I handled Geroni pretty poorly. Updates were few and far and post quality was just not well done.

Anyways, I know we were just starting to actually get some traffic but whatevs! How To Be So Real should be better and bigger, and that’s exactly what we’re going for. Catch ya on the flip side!

Love,
Teddy

Remember, I’m always with you. Just here now.

Preview Video

I saw this band open for Dan Deacon last night. They put on an amazing show, and were probably the best opening band I’ve ever seen. Four of the members, who play instruments, have these alien-like heads on them while the other five sing. One of these “aliens” job is to hold a mic up to an amp while to make noise while editing it with a dial and running around. Yeah, that mixed in with the general Wham City sound should give you an idea of how they are. Definitely go see them if they’re in your area, I know I sure will.

The Prodigy – Invaders Must Die (2009 Week)

The Prodigy is a well-known band with alot of great songs, and this new album is no exception.  Blending Rave music with Big Beat, this album is one of the catchiest I’ve heard this year, and not to mention it’s just plain badass.  From pounding electro-beats like the title track to blends of different instruments in songs like “Stand Up”, this album fails to dissapoint.  And not to mention, it’s the first Prodigy album with all three members on it since “The Fat of the Land” in 1997.

Pre-order/Buy

“My last album was a bedroom laptop type thing. Very introverted. Logos is an album that was recorded all over the world. It’s not about me. There are collaborations with other musicians. The lyrics are not autobiographical. The view is a lot more panoramic and less close-up. I became bored with introspection. This was also the case Deerhunter’s Microcastle LP, which was written during the same period.” – Bradford Cox

Lately we’ve had an influx of beachy-pop albums. This could be the case with this album, it does sound brighter. However, in typical Bradford spirit, the album has an autumn/winter sound. Check it out, it’s one of the best of the year.

The Music Tapes – For The Planet Pluto (mp3) (2009 Week)

The Music Tapes Julian Koster is back with a brand new song dedicated to (the once former) planet Pluto! This song is in typical Music Tapes fashion; a saw takes the lead with other sorts of odd instrumentation as well as a repeating chorus line. It’s good and makes me want Julian’s new album even more. Check out the video, probably the best thing I’ve seen all year, plus it has an appearance by Kevin Barnes!

Preview Collaboration Preview

This album has been under fire from alot of fans of MSTRKRFT’s first album, for the simple fact that there’s so many collaborations between them and rap artists or other musicians.  Personally, I really enjoy this album and find it very danceable.  I’ve included two previews.  One of just MSTRKRFT rocking out, and one of a rap collaboration.  Enjoy.

THIS ALBUM IS IN 320kbps. IT’S A CERTIFIED WINNER IN MY BOOK!

Grand Salvo – Death (I Don’t Care If This Came Out In 2008, I’m Still Going To Share It During 2009 Week)

This album is way too good not to share.

In many ways, Death is the most fully realised fruit from the much lauded imagination of the man behind Grand Salvo, Paddy Mann. While previous works revealed the storyteller in Mann, Death is a complete fable of rich proportions. A bird, a rabbit, a rat, a bear and a man all tell their own tale, coming together to weave a beautiful fairytale that will resonate with anyone of any age. It’s all in the telling – Mann has composed stunning orchestrations flowing seamlessly between delicate gestures and majestic outpourings for songs with an overwhelming spectrum of feeling.

The album was conceived before the release of 2005’s The Temporal Wheel on Preservation and slowly borne out over several years. As Preservation encouraged the work into being, so did the idea of collaborating with Spunk for its release to herald it far and wide.
Both Spunk and Preservation are thrilled and proud to both be involved with what should be seen as a major work from an Australian artist. -Grand Salvo Biography, taken from Spunk Records.

Recommended for fans of Mount Eerie, The Chronicles Of Narnia, or anything else of that sort.

This is possibly my favorite album of the year.  A lot of people seem to think it’s a weak follow-up to their first album “Girls and Weather” that I’ll likely be posting in the next week or two.  Personally, I like the fact that this album slowed down from their first album’s ska-like feeling.  So, go ahead and give this a download and make sure you keep a look out for their first album going up in the next week or two.

My cousin told me to listen to this band because they “sound like My Bloody Valentine meets Animal Collective”. He was totally right. Expect this band to be the newest, biggest thing in the next few years.
