Song of the Day – 3/14/08

Published by at 3:57 pm under MP3's

Hey everyone, sorry about yesterday’s “Post.” The Internet went out here and I couldnt Upload this post. Sorry about that. I love you all.

Hailing from The U.K., the Matinee Orchestra were a nice treat today. As I’ve come to find, this band has been the subject of a lot of critical praise, though no one really knows where they stand.

Aurgasm classifies them as “Laptop Folk” or “Avant Pop,” Now, if you’re like me and confused as all hell by the systematic genre-ization (?) of EVERYTHING, then let this be an undefinable curveball in your musical batter’s box.

“Fusion” is the best way to describe The Matinee Orchestra’s adventures into the world of sound. Combining pretty much everything from orchestral nuance to layers of echoing tape static, they could just as well be considered electronic and acoustic, progressive and traditional. A musical-impressionism of sorts, the group definitely “Makes it New.” I had a little trouble digging up substantial info on the guys, but leaving them as an enigma is just as good. I would recommend this for fans of everyone from the Album Leaf to Bjork. Take a nice long listen:

MP3: The Matinee Orchestra – “Imagination of a Watermelon”

MP3: The Matinee Orchestra – “Hide & Seek”

MP3: The Matinee Orchestra – “Run For Cover (It’s Going To Rain)”

    This is a really dynamic group. And I like it. I’m curious to hear more from them and get a better sense of their sound. I’m really liking the stuff you post, it’s always different and cool beans.
