Treat for your Eyes & Ears # 5

I am so excited about this. Eeeek
Mumford & Sons wrote this for the new Wuthering Heights.

Also if you have not yet seen this, what are you wating for?! (Bon Iver's Calgary)

You know that fella called Jay Z? Yeah, neither do I, but this man, Hugo, did a cover of 99 Problems. I love it.

If you've seen Easy A, you'll derrfinetly recognise Jessica Cornish's Sexy Silk. (Yes, this is in fact Jessie J. Yes, I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around this one as well.) Clip from the movie.

Last, but not least. Asteroids Galaxy Tour's Golden Age. Really had a fun time watching this music video.

So this is what I've been listening to this week (except for all the Tallest Man on Earth, which I can't get enough of!)

SO many new interesting thingy's going on in the world of Internets and Music. Amazing.

First up, an ENCRIDIBLE collaboration of AMAZING artists in ONE BAND. No, really. Recently Gerdus Oosthuizen (New Holland), Leroi Nel (Foto Na Dans), Reyno Buckle (New Holland) and Justin Bosman (Dane Taylor Trio) joined their very MAGICAL forces and brewed up a little band called Sons of Settlers.

I know, I know. My brain is also struggling to comprehend the amazingness of this. It is simply too much, it (my brain) might explode out of peer awesomeness.

They have released a video of their single Stay Together, now I will say it's not the best quality, but you get an idea of what is to come and bless our ears very soon. I am so excited.

THEN there is yet another project that needs your immediate attention, Black Handed Kites, the lovechild of TeeJay Terblanche (from New Holland) and Richard Onraet.

Yes, I would like to direct you to one of 2012's MANY social media platforms created specifically for the use of exposing yourself to the world, but these okes does not have any page on the World Wide Web. I think they might be on to something here, maybe setting a new trend.

They have been kind enough to give us a video to tickle our musical taste buds, a simple iPhone strapped to a microphone stand (speaking under correction). Give a listen to their song Up and demand them to perform somewhere so we can have more eargasms.

Guns in Kalkbay

Right at the end of last year, these bad boys announced they are taking a break by releasing this on their Facebook Page

Hey everyone.
  From around the end of March, we are gonna be taking a break of 6 months, maybe longer.
  So for Jan, Feb and March we are gonna play some shows with bands we really dig, at venues we
 Please make sure to catch a show or two before we lay down our guitars for a while.

YES! We are all very sad and our hearts are shattered, but what can you do? You can go to their next gig, show them a little support and hope they'll change their minds! Hooraaaah! (Wishful thinking)

But really,
This weekend Pretty Blue Guns are playing the Legendary Brass Bell Pub in Kalkbay, we can all go support them and have some fun! Facebook Event for more details.

Hope to see everyone there!

Lua Union

Lua Union is back and it seems with a bang! The last time I saw them, was in 2009 on  our Matric Weekend in Hermanus.

They were pretty decent back then and by the sound of it, they're getting even better! You can check out their many webpages Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and their Website. They boys have also been nice enough to give you a taste of what's to come by posting a little video on Youtube.

Jonathan (from Johannine  & Stepdog ) as well as Lucas (from Pretty Blue Guns ) are in this band, so you know it's gonna be good.

Somebody that I used to know

While most of you are listening to Gotye version of 'Somebody that I used to know', I'm listening to Walk off the Earth's cover. Have a listen.

Both these videos are amazing!

"Get a Room"

Tallest Man on Earth- Thrown Right at Me

Expect a post very soon, I promise.

*Lyrics to this beautiful song*
Jump 'long the creekside
The rock's crooked line
Fun curls your hair and
The days open wide
And horses trot faster 'til  sparrows fall down

But you just fall, laughin',
to the snow on the ground
You grew up by playin' the valley so wild
And that's why
You're so beautiful now
And, dancin' your bike to the lonesome, young mare

You call up her owner;
say your heart will be there
You'll build a collection of scars on your knees
To learn how to count the impossible trees
You grew up by climbin' the birches so high
And that's why
You're so beautiful now
And we live so close that we probably seen

The same bird, the same time
They solumnly scream
One day, I'll find just that friend who can see
All this weird beauty
Thrown right at me
Growin' by playin' the valley so wild

And that's why
You're so beautiful now.
