The Dead Weather

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

This might be old news to you, but I still wanted to mention that if you’re just remotely interested in dirty blues rock and bands like The White Stripes and The Raconteurs you should definitely check out The Dead Weather.

It’s a¬†supergroup consisting of:

Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs)
Alison Mossheart (The Kills)
Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs)
Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age)

Their first album “Horehound” was released on July 13 here in Europe. This video is from the song “Treat Me Like Your Mother”.

It’s been a long time… again!

I’ve been quite busy for the last month or so, meaning that I have neglected my blog. Again. But hey, now it’s christmas and I’ve got loads of spare time for updating this blog. I guess I should get started then, but first – a little song.

This time it’s “Really wanna be in LA” by¬†Eagles of Death Metal, one of my favourite bands (just listen to that Josh Homme-ish guitar!). There are two versions of the video for this song, a “normal” one with some fancy graphics, and then this one with the pins. Being a geeky engineering-student I picked the pins-version :-)

Dear Blog…

It’s been a long time. I know. To make it up to you, I promise to write two posts today. One about the progress at CIID, and then this one. So what will this post contain? Lots of awesomeness! Not in the sense of great writing or the recipe for the world’s best cookies, no. That’s too boring. Instead I will post a YouTube video by The Hives, it’s the song “Won’t be long” and it is just one of many many extremely cool songs by The Hives. Enjoy! I will.

One good thing about the new iPod nanos

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

I’m not that impressed by the new iPod nanos – usually Apple comes out with something interesting, but honestly, an accelerometer and an “intelligent” music-analyzing algorithm does not really impress me. And the design is just a step back towards the iPod mini. I like the form factor of my old nano (3rd gen) – it fits perfectly into that (previously) useless pocket that’s partly inside the right front pocket on almost every pair of jeans. I’d rather see capacity improvements on the 3rd gen nano, than the launch of the 4th gen.

Well, enough with the grumpy old man. To the point: One good thing about the new nanos, is the video at Apple.com, which is showcasing some of the new features. In that video, the nano plays a bit of Datarock – a Norwegian band that I had totally forgotten about. Watching that video made me rediscover Datarock and now they’re on repeat (especially the track “Fa-fa-fa” with the funky bassline and guitar). Thank you Apple, for reminding me about Datarock. Looking forward to the 5th gen nanos.

Take a look at Datarock on YouTube. The image belongs to Apple.
