Switchfoot rockin Kuala Lumpur
Meet switchfoot, 5 piece band from San Diego, USA. Their genre is more on Alternative rock, some of the media categorized them as Christian Rock because their previous label Re:Think was associated with CCM , a gospel label. Getting their famous break after a movie A Walk to Remember which featured their singles such as Dare You To Move, Learning to Breathe and Only Hope. You know the movies right ? the one who introduce us to the innocent face of Mandy Moore ?. You probably think that Only Hope is Mandy’s song, because that was the song who rocketed her as a singer also. Only Hope is written by Jon Foreman and included in their second album The New Way to Be Human.
Two international artist concert in one weekend, thats too much aint it ? ya i thought so also. I had that last week because last month i bought two concert ticket separately without knowing that it just only one day difference between them. Oh well, its Maroon 5 and Switchfoot anyways and both of them performed awesomely, i fell less guilty about the money spent for those. Heres my take up on Maroon 5, ill follow up with Switchfoot later.
Maroon 5 live in KL
Sometime of this month, i went to a very cool concert that was held in KLCC park titled Twin Tower Live 2011. Cool because Hoobastank was there, and even more awesome because it was free. Its not only Hoobastank there though there were Malaysian local artists also such as Yuna, Bunkface and Bunkface vocalist side projects, The Azenders. Also there were Korean girls band which become so popular these day, Wondergirls.
Ive been single for few months now. no no, this opening doesnt meant to be a single gloomy sentence that will make this entire post sounds like emo. Apart from the fact that im single, thanks God life is still doing so awesome for me. Well, i realized relationship is one part of me that im quite suck at it haha. But no worries folks, im not a fan of giving up and being negative. So yes, ive been going for another romance this time. Quite in the early stage but started in a fun way.
Now heres the thing, im gonna give you 5 of the songs that repeating on my playlist this week. If you know me in person, you might be have a clue what kinda romance im into now or if you know me that well, you can even name the lucky girl haha. Enjoy now and listen to the lyrics carefully 😀
Last weekend, i went to the concert by a metal band which ive been following them since junior high. I watch them first time on the afternoon MTV show (alternative nation or most wanted, im not sure) through their video clip “Back To School” and it was straigthly headbanging me down. Then i know them more on the Family Values tour DVD with other bands such as Korn and Limp Bizkit, from that i knew their powerhouse singles like ” 7 words” and “engine no 9”. If you still dont know who is this band im talking about, Youtube those two singles i mention before and i guarantee it will blow your simple mind of yours haha. Yes, im talking about Chino Moreno, Chi Cheng, Abe Cunningham, Frank Delgado and Stephen Carpenter a.k.a Deftones.
Live in KL
A short post about some music that really suits my mood lately, can you guess which mood i am in right now ? haha like y’all got nothing better to do. Anyway just enjoy this good music from these not-so mainstream musician which i guess theres a high probability you never heard them before.
Ive been into cover rendition in youtube lately such as Jake Coco or Boyce Avenue. You can find nearly gazillions of cover there, but those two are the best so far IMHO in terms of recording quality and performance. Below is one from Boyce Avenue, covering one of my fave song from Vertical Horizon (which suits my mood also these days hehe)
“Everything You Want” – Boyce Avenue
You’re waiting for someone
To put you together
You’re waiting for someone to push you away
There’s always another wound to discover
There’s always something more you wish he’d say
He’s everything you want
He’s everything you need
He’s everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don’t know why
