Garbage recycles itself and Scenes from the Suburbs POSTED BY VINNIE BLESI, June 2, 2012 Share
"Garbage Recycles Itself"
Alternative pop outfit, "Garbage", returns with their first new musical release, "Not Your Kind of People", in seven years. Vocalist/lyricist Shirley Manson tried out her acting chops in the US "Terminator" TV series, in which she was very good and sexy playing the evil scientist. Now she says, “I wanted to make loud, guitar-driven rock again,”.
"Not Your Kind of People" delivers with not only loud guitar driven songs but with a wall of sound that would make Phil Specter want to shoot someone and buy a new wig.
Current Garbage fans will not be disappointed, and I urge you to buy the deluxe version because all the extra songs are worth it.
If you are a new to Garbage, please go back to their initial release and become indoctrinated in Garbage.
"Arcade Fire's 'Scenes from the Suburbs' "
Arcade Fire's 2011 release, "The Suburbs", won the critics support and won various awards. The band has recently collaborated with Spike Jonze to direct the short film "Scenes from the Suburbs". Although the concept of a suburban town at war with local towns, complete with a police state and border checkpoints is delicious, Spike Jonze mires this short film down in useless teen relationship drama, that never resolves anything and never any statement other than teen's have relationship problems.
On the bright side, Arcade Fire, has collaborated with director, Vincent Morisset, to make a
great video for their song, "Sprawl 2". The original video is in itself a short film, as I believe we need to start taking music videos seriously as modern filmmaking. But, there is an interactive video that is fun to play with at http://www.sprawl2.com/.
