Song of the Day! Kasabian – Where Did All The Love Go?

Kasabian bring us music from the UK

Youtube: Kasabian – Where Did All The Love Go? 

I never really could understand how such an amazing band like Kasabian can go so unnoticed in the States. In 2009 these guys released the brilliant concept album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. The album received massive amounts of praise in Britain but is still relatively unknown in America. It actually defies all logic that such a large number of people are unexposed to a band like Kasabian. They do such a good job infusing rock and various electro styles that you’d think Americans would eat it right up. A raw and unprocessed sound, combined with sharp precise lyrics, helped to make West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum one of my absolute favorites of 2009. I really can’t tell you enough times that you should go check out this incredible british musical group.

Song of The Day! Boy & Bear – Mexican Mavis

Boy & Bear's love's not a limit from Sydney, Australia

Don’t let the Fleet Foxes style intro throw you off this track. Mexican Mavis is a song that rewards the listener as it takes you on a journey, as if by horseback, through various ups and downs. Mexican Mavis was released late 2009 but never really had a home on a proper album. Instead the song found its way onto the release of the bands debut EP- With Emperor Antarctica, in May of 2010.  This is the kind of ambient folk rock I could sit back and waste the day away to. I look forward to a true album effort from these Aussies and all the wonderful music that it will entail.
