i think the Hectic Glow would sound something like a mix between Fleet Foxes, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Arcade Fire. SHH OKAY I HAVE A VERY SPECIFIC SOUND IN MY HEAD THAT I CANNOT EXPLAIN their name has such a nice golden aura though so their sound to me would have the color of…
No you guys! You’re forgetting the electro beats going on in there. It’s not just the sounds of a couple of indie bands mashed together it has a different glow to it’s sound.
“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”—Woody Allen (via yourhawtjewfriend)
Iceland! Iceland! What do you put in your water? You give me Björk, Sigur Rós, Emilíana Torrini and now Of Monsters and Men?
This sextet’s first album is like this perfect smorgasbord of indie music. Little bit of Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, sprinkle of Florence & the Machine and a touch of the xx. Admittedly, Dirty Paws is not their catchiest song (that award goes to Little Talks) but I think it best represents the album as a whole. I also love how evocative the lyrics are.
Their new album, My Head is an Animal, is only available in Iceland but it’s slated for an early 2012 US release. To tide you over, you should check out their EP Into The Woods.
