Periphery = Icarus Lives! (EP Version)

The boys are back and they’ve brought the rock with them. Soaring vocals and guttural yells scream their way across brilliantly produced instrumentation. Clever timing changes and a clean sound from each instrument give this track a glossy sheen, even in it’s musical brutality. Be sure to listen carefully for Matt Halpern’s rolling snare throughout the duration of the tune. That is pure talent. This band changes members like decks at a casino, but that doesn’t detract from the band’s reputation as one of the best metalcore bands on the scene today.

Hello, World.

Privy is developing the first online promotions platform for merchants. We help customers in three key ways:

  1. Driving more traffic to your businesses website
  2. Converting more web visitors into first time customers using pre-paid promotions and gift certificates
  3. Re-marketing to newly acquired patrons after they visit

We’re currently working with select businesses in the Boston area. Please inquire with contact@getprivy.com should you be interested in testing Privy for your restaurant, boutique or other small business.

Can we please just be mature individuals and understand that...

Isabella is not at fault if she gets in the way of Oswald and Edward having a romantic relationship right now.

Edward is entirely unaware of Oswald’s feelings. 

As the viewers, we get to be privy to everything that happens. However… from Edward’s point of view (and again, this is a man who doesn’t always pick up on social cues) Oswald has being a very good friend. 

Oswald has only just realized himself that he has romantic feelings for Edward. Other then being a awkward nervous wreck, there’s not much else that would cue Edward into seeing Oswald’s feelings. 

Edward is a oblivious man right now. So yes, he  encounters a woman who looks like his first love, and yes, he’s smitten. It’s like pining over an ex you loved once and having another chance to be with them… With the additional benefit of not having murdered their ex boyfriend getting in the way.

So once again.

ISABELLA IS NOT AT FAULT. 

Please stop hating on a character that has done nothing to deserve it. It’s childish.

Friendly Fires = Live Those Days Tonight

A tune from the album Pala, released earlier this year, “Live Those Days Tonight” will keep you fully engaged through the duration of the tune. Beginning with a steam engine whistling “I’ll live,” this song channels the spirit of the best tunes from the 80’s and manifests it in the future. Having relationship issues? Play this song for your significant other and all woes will be crushed between the walls of sound and acceptance Friendly Fires has effortlessly created with festive, sparkling synths and layered bursts of misty pads. Heavy on the electronics, this song is ripe for a club banging remix. If you don’t own this album, you are sorely remiss. Don’t be a lame.

The Dear Hunter = What it Means to be Alone

Filmed at Tahoe State Park, this acoustic performance perfectly captures the profundity of Casey Crescenzo’s (The brain and multi-instrumentalist driving The Dear Hunter bus) music and lyricism. This particular track is a few years old, yet perfectly illustrates the band’s aesthetic. Recently released is the band’s Color Spectrum EP, a seven part conceptual project exploring the emotions associated with each color of the rainbow. Each color’s sound plays vastly different from the other, yet maintains the powerful sound for which The Dear Hunter is known. Ranging from country inspired rock to prog-tronic chaos, any listener is sure to find a color that appeals to their musical taste.

Young The Giant = Apartment

“Apartment” is a tender offering from this Californian quintet. Sameer Gadhia’s powerfully unique voice fuels a tale of comfort in the presence of a loved one, and the bitter loneliness of departure. Guitar driven, straightforward rock, this song will find its place easily beside tunes in a break-up or romance mix. Snuggle up with your schnoockums and enjoy an evening gazing at the traffic below your fifth story flat, or weep until the sun rises with a vacant expression in the sullen darkness of your poorly moonlit room. In either case, it’s a sure bet you will enjoy this song.

Benoit & Sergio = New Ships

Foals = Spanish Sahara

You’ll need headphones for this one. I implore you to use a quality pair and not those shitty earbuds that shipped with your iPod. Foals has definitely grown up in the time between the band’s last full length and the recently released Total Life Forever, and “Spanish Sahara” is proof of that maturity. Opening with forlorn guitar and ocean waves, “Spanish Sahara” burns slowly; each ashed ember adding to the density of the composition. Distant, articulate guitar riffs and effervescent keys create a frothy head through which Yannis Philippakis’ soft tenor both melds with and cuts through. A near chaotic wall of sound gives way to delayed and hairy key pulses, quantize function abandoned; a decision not often chosen in electronic heavy music. This track is seven minutes of musical heaven wrapped in an electric blanket. It will haunt you in the best of ways.

BeatauCue = Cystise

A track off of BeatauCue’s Falcon Punch EP, this tune is sure to blow the roof off any club. Oh, you were telling the story about how you once single-handedly saved 40 acres of Amazonian rain forest with a Bic pen and a pocket full of butter mints to the blonde at the bar? Not anymore. Now you’re dancing. Because you have to. Your feeble human brain isn’t powerful enough to resist the syncopated vocals, chopped up and served hot like dinner at Benihana. Once the 2:45 mark arrives, your body is no longer your own as you succumb to the will of the arpeggiated synth gods. The lights are off, the moonflower is dancing and so are you.
