No one listens to The Bastard Fairies because they want to hear an average band making subpar music. They listen to The Bastard Fairies because they want to hear something unexpected and unique.
Memento Mori is an album that not only brings unexpected and unique instrumentation to the table, but it also provides some creative and controversial lyrics. You'll know what we're talking about once you hear "We're All Going To Hell", it's definitely original ;)
So with that said, let's look at a song or two as we Unhinge...The Bastard Fairies.
When you think of indie rock what groups first come to mind? Modest Mouse? Arcade Fire? Possibly both?
One of the things we love about indie rock here at Unhinged Reviews is that the music is always an experience. It's never the same blasé sounds radio stations saturate the waves with containing nothing but safe melodies and copycat lyrics.
Nope. Indie rock likes to go outside of the box and sometimes they go so far out you can't even hear the words, but inside you feel the vibe. That's the kind of indie rock we're talking about.
Would you like to hear some? Here's a group out of Maryland that has held our interest for quite sometime. They call themselves Lower Dens, maybe you've heard of them...
By now, unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard of audio books..lol And just what are audio books? Audio books are an excellent source of entertainment for a reader on the go or someone that just wants a change of pace during their daily commute. Just about any book coming out today will have an audio version of it's paperback or hard cover cousin. This is the audio book.
The reason we're talking about audio books today is because we want to shed light on two that we are currently enjoying and would like to share with you. So get ready, here we go...
"You can hate on Lana Del Rey all you want, but this woman knows how to make hit records"
Some artist come into our lives and create songs that make us dance and giggle with friends. Lana Del Rey is not that type of artist. Lana is one of those few talents that can make you genuinely feel or long for a memory of a distant past. Her music has been called dark, cinematic, hell even Gothic, but we just call it quality.
So whether or not you know the music of Elizabeth Grant, take a moment to explore Paradise.
"Anyone that listened to rap in the late 90s should remember this rugged line spitter from The Bronx"
Every now and then, we here at Unhinged Reviews, go back through the archives and pluck out one of our precious jewels from the secret stash. This month we've run across an oldie but goodie named "Nine"!
This raspy-throat scratcher hit us hard in 95' with Nine Livez and we feel that it's only right that we give this hardcore album the shine it deserves. Let's Unhinge...
