Finding New Music: A Challenge
As a music lover, I am always looking for something new to listen to. Why I do this is beyond me. Just with Kpop I have so much new music I can listen to everyday. But that is a topic for another post.
I love Kpop, but as of late, I am yearning for something different. Like when you refresh your palette with some sorbet between meals (in fancy restaurants) — my ears need to be refreshed with English music. That is why I went on a YouTube search trying to find some great new tunes. Now here is where I got really mad at YouTube.
You see, old YouTube had this great feature where you could see all their major categories. In each category you could see what videos were recently updated as well as the ones gaining attention. I could easily browse among freshly posted music videos and find something new. Well, with the change YouTube has done, that amazing feature is gone. Sure, they still have the major categories but it’s all weird now. It just shows you the most popular videos of each genre and some recommendations. Well, that doesn’t help much.
Damn you, YouTube, damn you.
But, after some clever searching words, I scored some new music videos. These were all published between January 2nd and 3rd. I got this crazy idea that I should browse YouTube everyday for new music, but I realized quite quickly that it would be suicidal. The amount of music that is shared everyday via YouTube is too huge… and at the same time, I would love to share good music if I find it. But that means I need to constantly update it. I shall see if I can find a good way I can make this crazy idea of mine work.
With no further ado, some of the good music I found two days ago (this was supposed to be posted yesterday, but yeah :P)!
Scissor Sisters Vs Krystal Pepsy – Shady Love
I love me some old Scissor Sisters. This song is good, but I am not sold on it. It could grow on me, we shall see. But for now, I really just wanted to share it. Not sure what I should say about the video…
The Mariana Hollow – Your Halo
The Mariana Hollow is a female-fronted alternative metal quintet from London. That is pretty cool. This song is pretty cool as well. Easy on the ears.
The music video was directed and edited by Colin Arnold from The Surgery Productions.
