it's a great trailer. the movie was great too, but the trailer... that shit made history. it was a trailer about a screenplay!



Scala is great, I saw them live once and it was beautiful. This is my favorite song Crystalline Skies, too bad there's no live version of it on YT.
That's one of their own songs, they also do many covers, such as this one: Barbiegirl. Fucking brilliant!!! And here's a live version of Creep

Here's a full concert that I'll be watching now: https://youtu.be/vP3jp4Ji298
(edit: yes I'm skipping some songs, but there are some gems here, especially Evigheden)

Thanks for the reminder!

I hadn't heard Scala for some time, but whenever I do listen to them, in the end I get a craving to hear this

thanks! i had no idea. i came at this from the film angle, but after listening to your links i enjoy the subtle deconstruction they perform with the songs they cover.

anyway now after a day-long detour with various choral ensembles i'm back to 1993 :D

That's technically impossible, the video is of November 2020 :p

This song was released yesterday. It's not the song of the year for me, but it's mighty impressive, and a cool video as well:
Big Brave - Half Breed

Perhaps I should just move to Montreal! So much fine music coming from that town!

the theme of today:

live album

loud fuzzy doom guitars

Open to suggestions...

Right you are... Hadn't noticed that. I stand by what I posted, though, because the album just came out. :p:p:p

Damn, the B52's and 90s bachelor pad music revival in the guise of Trip-Hop/Plunderphonics have sent me down a rabbit hole.
All that's missing is a garishly colored drink in hand and maybe some Saturday morning cartoon visuals. :D


Maybe it's about time contemporary music incorporate some space age elements again.
But instead of emulating the bouffant-aesthic and running the risk of glorifying era-conforming sexist tropes, go for some really out there
animated music videos set in space or something. Modern electronica + space age giddyness - I'd be down for that.

^ Ugh, what a disappointment. Otherwise competent musicianship ruined by unfocused songwriting and drab vocal stylings. On the paper, this should be something I love, hell it even has several seemless segues from one track into the next and is very cohesive structurally - stuff I'm usually a sucker for. Too bad I don't care enough for the songs to really be enthralled by that. Hard pass.

i'll keep the single though-- and then toss the now-dated, forgettable rest


I have always been amazed at how RH went from this to OKC in just 4 years.
