Throwing out some Sunday love, here’s something for your eyes and ears to enjoy while your bum chills out. That said, you just might start grooving.
Cara Ellison’s embed with Katharine Neil and Harvey Smith is up. If you haven’t read any of the embed series I’d highly recommend it. A real, personal insight in to the lives of the people you’ve only ever seen in the credits of the games we play. I think it also does a nice job of highlighting the struggle for games to achieve recognition amongst the general public, people are reticent to accept that games can do more than just Call of Duty sequels. That said, even Call of Duty has made its points in times gone by – there’s art to be had in this medium.
We’re starting strong with one of my favourite bands from the moment I heard them. Thabo is an incredible singer both in recordings and live, is the most down-to-earth, friendly man who sings to me through my headphones and has a midas voice. Everything the man sings is pure molten gold. Smooth and pure, this first album is a real delight despite some of the production failings that come with a first outing (there is definitely some noise on Special Song that I don’t think is meant to be there). People of Today is a real solid opener, Revolution has me moving and singing along every single time, especially at the end. Special Song is a great chiller before Hey Mama brings the beat back beautifully. If you don’t have much time, go give Revolution and World War Free from their other album on the site a listen. Your ears’ll thank me and you’ll probably feel better about yourself in the process!
Have a great Bank Holiday weekend everyone in England. That’s no less love to the rest of ya, I just don’t follow your national holidays.
