massive wall of sound…oh, and my ears are still ringing.

Decoder Ring

ok. Last night I went to go and see Decoder Ring with my mate Hughie. I don’t know any of their new material, except for Beat The Twighlight. Hughie on the other hand new it all. But yeah, man, they are bloody great live. Bloody loud too. But it has to be that loud in order for you to get the full effect. So yeah, I thought i’d post two of their tracks.

Both of the tracks work really well with videos of horses running in fields. Part of Decoder Ring’s stage show is quite visual. Since much of what they do is sorta soundscape-ish, the visuals just ad that extra dimension. And they had a few vids of horses running wild. So, please play their tracks with the followubg vid! Oh, but remember to mute it…I think it’s got Kelly Clarkson playing :s It was the only vid I could find!!

If my mate Hughie can get his arse into gear, there might be a proper review of the gig coming up soon. I wouldn’t could on it though!

Decoder Ring – Beat The Twilight

Decoder Ring – Escape Pod

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.



ok. So quite a change from my anti study post a few days ago! But it’s still a form of procrastination, so it all evens out. I’ve found that some music helps me study! It’s been proven that classical music can help studying and i think the same has been said about certain jazz styles. But, I have limited classical or jazz in my music library. But i do have a bit of what i suppose you’d term, “Post Rock”, as well as some great endurance style dance music. So yeah, anyway, here’s my study tape! Should suit your last minute cramming on the train quite well me thinks.

ok. Here goes!

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
