Bands That Have Emailed Me Music: I’m not a Band

I got some mp3s from self-described “alternative electro pop” musicians I’m not a Band in the email machine a few weeks back.

They are German, and I took four years of German in high school, so I really “get” them, you know?

In all honesty, I was never much for electronic-based stuff, but I like that their songs get to the point and don’t drone on and on, i.e. you are not required to take ex to enjoy this band. Though I imagine, like all electronic stuff, it wouldn’t hurt.

So, come, let’s listen! Now! Beeilen wir uns!

  • “This is it” [download mp3]
    I think is my favorite of the two they sent along, which is surprising since it’s longer and instrumental. But I think it’s more melodic. It sounds a little bit like maybe Mannheim Steamroller, after recording a rousing rendition of “Deck the Halls”, left their studio unattended, and their mid-20s kids snuck in and decided to jam a little bit. This one also uses more violin than the other, which is nice.
  • “Crazy” [download mp3]
    This is a bit Elastica-y. Which is a good thing in my eyes. No, actually the Elastica-ness of it is a great thing. The music behind it moves quick, like I mention, but veers a little too close to drone-iness for me. Still, I like it.

I’ve moved to Los Angeles. My scanner has not.

Dudes. Sorry about the lack of a strip today. I just moved across the country and had hoped to be unpacked at this point, but my scanner still resides in a storage unit somewhere in San Bernadino.

I should have it back in 5 or 6 days, and we’ll resume the hilarity.

As a reminder, Bassist Wanted will continue to be 7 days a week for another week or two, and then it’ll be down to the normal output of 3 strips per week.

That’s so I’ll have time to do my two new comic strips:

  • Mann & Machine – Comic strips about technology and technologists.
  • One Nation, Thunder Dog – Comic strips about politics and politicians.

Yes, the PorterVerse is expanding. Get. Psyched.
