There are thousands of different ways to label music, and in true LGM fashion, we burst through the norm of modern categorization and create a brand new realm: Musing Music. We have fabricated this new genre to showcase thought provoking music that is going to be more than satisfying regardless of your musical tastes. Whether it is a specific band or a couple of perfectly executed songs, prepare to indulge in the finest.

Believe me when I say this, posting something about Twilight is the last thing¬†I wanted to do but when I was enlightened¬†on this soundtrack it blew my pants straight off. Honestly, this¬†soundtrack is stunning.¬†I’ve been waiting for many moons (pun-intended) for a compilation to de-thrown the almighty¬†Garden State soundtrack and that day has finally come. This album boasts huge bands ranging mostly in the alternative indie genre but still packs an insane punch. Heading the cavalery is the Death Cab for Cutie song (Meet Me¬†On The¬†Equinox) which is everything it was built up to be and is coupled by some other monumentally epic songs from Thom Yorke, The Killers, Muse, and the list only gets better. CHECK IT!

First off apologies for the brief hiatus! Now that that’s out of the way, we are going to embark on¬† a month dedicated to riding music because snowboarding season is kicking off right round the corner. The fundamentals of perfect riding music derive from a sense of flowing, if it flows you’ll flow. Hip hop is notorious for flowing and what better band to present than Jurassic 5. They’ve been in the game for years and they’re newer stuff¬† has taken a progressive turn, but the old stuff, damn! My personal favorites have gotta be Jayou and the entire Quality Control album.

Maybe its the rythmic tones or the almost sinister sounding vioce, either way, Julian Plenti will send chills down your spine (both good and bad). Our first double feature of a singer begins with Julian Plenti, whose real name is actually Paul Banks and is also the lead singer from last weeks featured band Interpol. Why do this? Banks has actually been performing under this alias for over seven years and not only that but some of the songs featured on his debut album Julian Plenti is…Skyscraper he wrote over ten years ago! The man is absolutely brilliant and in this debut album he incorporates many different sounds,¬†he¬†even brings in a symphony for acouple killer songs. Disregard the song Unwind, its not only terribe, but¬†it doesn’t even fit¬†the feel of the rest of the cd. That being said PLEASE check out Girl On the Sporting News it is curently my new favorite and is not the type of song you only listen to once. As for the rest of the album, chek it out, and like always you won’t be disappointed!

¬†¬† It was brought to my attention the other day that the readers maybe aren’t grasping the concept we’ve thought up for Musing Music, therefore ill take the liberty of delegating to you what its all about… There¬†is an¬†astronomical amount of bands out there with only fractions getting any love so what we plan on doing in this musical¬†endevor is to tour all different types and genres¬†while presenting¬†this universal concept: If it sounds good then you bet your ass we’ll be featuring it. That means new and old and everything in between. With that being said, I bring to you Interpol. The band consists of¬†four ridiculously talented guys who have a passion for deriving music that is not only catchy but very thought provoking. Weather your diggin the mind consuming¬†slow grooves in¬†Rest My Chemistry, or your hittin it face first with The Heinrich Maneuver,¬†you will fully comprehend what complex, and¬†damn-good, music sounds like. Check out the entire CD titled Our Love to Admire and trust me you won’t regret it.
PS- Think you know of an amazing band that you think should be featured? Or maybe even just one really good song in particular? Let us know and maybe you’ll see it up on the Musing Music!

The main focus (as you will no doubt figure out) of Musing Music is to expand one’s musical palate. In doing that, the majority of bands featured in this¬† musical endeavour will more than likely be something you’ve never actually heard of… and in some cases you¬†would have to live under a rock not to know. ¬†Now. I’m all about giving credit where credit is deserved and, in this case, Common deserves a shit-ton. His album¬†Universal Mind Control hit the shelves and sold like hot cakes at the begining of this year and the¬†title track Universal Mind Control (UMC) is out of this world good! If you still have yet to hear this song do your ears a favor and tune in to this elctro-rap groove and kick off this fall in the right fashion, Fly.

The clouds formed! Thunder struck! A furious burst of light took over the skies! …And out of the rubble of madness? An amazing band from Australia was born. Cut Copy is not your normal “electropop” band; they are the apex predators of the electropop movement. Three band members come up with absolutely brilliant music such as: Lights & Music, Feel the Love, and Hearts on Fire to name just a few. This music will have you subconsciously tapping your foot in no time flat and quite possibly even delegate a nice little dance sesh, yes, it’s that good. Get ready for a cornucopia of sound and all around feelin’¬†good, that’s Cut Copy.
