Thirsty Thursdays: 07

Welcome back for the seventh installment of "Thirsty Thursdays." Today I'll be posting some pretty out there stuff. So yeah... get use to it. Check it out, and broaden your fucking horizons. We'll open with The Human Abstract's "Sotto Voce" - Which in Italian means "under voice" meaning to speak under ones breathe confidentially. In music this means to dramatically lower the vocal or musical tone. This song is played in entirely classical dueling guitars. Flamingo style.

YACHT or rather Jona Bechtolt has been sweeping the blog world with his catchy beats and lyrics for some time now. I'm not sure why but this song always seems to cheer me up. It's sort of funny in it's own way.

YACHT - "See A Penny (Pick it up)"

We've posted one Legion of Doom song before, however it only covered their hardcore side. The duo, Chad Blinman and Trever Keith, do have a softer side. This song is very interesting combining the soft singing of Chris Carrabba and the delicate guitar work from his band Dashboard Confessional with the harder guitar-riffs and the chorus from Brand New's "The Quiet Things Nobody Ever Knows."

The Legion of Doom - "The Quiet Screaming"

The Knack a Los-Angels based rock band, claim to fame was their first single in 1979, "My Sharona."
A cover of this song was featured by New Jersey based grindcore band, The Number 12 Looks Like You. In a funny sort of way their cover also helped promote their band just as much as it did for the Knack. The song is very similar in sound, however the lyrics are screamed, there is a solo towards the end of the song which is very worth a listen to preformed by the bands very own Alexis Pareja, he's known to preform the solo on top of one of the lead singers shoulders at live performances.

The Number Twelve Looks Like You - "My Sharona"

Today we'll be ending with the same band that we begun with. This is one of the Human Abstracts best songs in my opinion. Some people would say that this is simply "Hardcore" however i'd like to make a claim that this is "Epic Hardcore" the band combines many classical elements into their musical work. Enjoy. Check out this band on warped tour this summer! GET THE NEW ALBUM "Nocturne" here. It's fucking great.
