lazy rock!

i’m gonna lose some of my street cred, but here we go

for a change, i started listening to some “lazy rock”

don’t get me wrong… i’m still all about the kanye…

it’s essentially indie-rock or indie-folk, but it pretty much all sounds the same… i’m digging pomplamoose, she and him, the bird and the bee

once you listen to these bands, you’ll see why i affectionately call it lazy rock… normally it’s a female singer who doesn’t try to belt out the lyrics… it’s more melodic and subtle

pomplamoose has some pretty cool youtube videos that show how they record their songs… not sure if it’s really their process… seems easier to play a full on drum set instead of each piece separately… but that’s just me. oh and it should be stated that nataly’s facial expressions get me every time…

Pomplamoose – Expiration Date

she and him is zooey deschanel’s band… and yes… she’s hot — so this helps me like their music a bit… i swear tho, she has something in her movie contracts that she has to sing in them (i think there’s like one or two that she doesn’t sing in)

She & Him – Sentimental Heart

she deserves a second video shout out!

i found out about bird and the bee from their hall & oates covers… whoa whoa whoa… hall and oates?! yes… if you think me liking hall & oates isn’t cool, then you think sarmad isn’t cool… so there…

The Bird and the Bee – Kiss is on my List

        its awesome. but i searched and searched (for like 10 min), and could not find it. sometimes I think nbc is like the mlb when it comes to their videos. it was from a nov? 09 episode. that guy demonstrated some big talent and cajones

  2. […] though the guru disagrees, I think this song falls under the category of “lazy rock.”  It is very melodic and easy to listen and groove […]
