Blissed out in Film School

Film School – “p.s.”

I always find the music of Film School so warm and pleasant. The simplest little progression can sound glorious in the hands of such skilled and sensitive players. This is soothing, medicinal music, however dark and melancholic, and there’s a certain genius to hitting that blend just right. “p.s.” is a big yet understated composition, rendered with a minimal Velvet Underground style rhythm section ethic, exquisite droney guitars, and obsessively well informed keyboard and string parts, all gathered around and tending to a poetic and precarious lyric like doctors and nurses around a mysterious patient. Beautiful work.

Forget Shoegaze, Look At My Hands! Look At My Knees!

Dykertiz – “Look At My Hands, Look At My Knees”

This song is very creative and unusual, but distinctly pop and accessible in its own unique way. That might sound bookish, but it is some of the highest praise I can give! Hmm, I guess I want to know what “Dykeritz” means now.
