Time to take a trip to Pandora

As some of you might not know or may already have an inkling about, I myself am a gamer of sorts. I play on a selection of mediums and with a lovely group of individuals I might add, but back to the main topic at hand.

Music in games, for me, can either make or break the game. The auditorial components to any game is key in adding atmosphere, mood, emotion, intensity, suspense, and a whole variety of things. There are games I can listen to the entire orchestral soundtrack (BioShock, Fallout 3, etc) and feel as though you’re right there in the game, whether your walking down the street or sitting on the train into work. If an opening sequence to a game gives me the chills, grasps me in heart and soul, then it’s a keeper.

One such game as hinted at in the title is the badassest, kickassable game around :: Borderlands 2!

It was a Wild Beasts, Little Comets, Reptar, and Everything Everything kind of day.

The other day I took my first commuting trip to Hamilton since my surgery, the same route I’d gone on when I was still in school (I am indeed graduated now, as of last June). This trip usually takes two hours and consists of a city bus, a train, then another bus until we arrive on campus. And with this new found step forward and adventure ahead, I listened to groups that absolutely lull my ears into bliss and create melodic love that will make your ears tingle with happiness. So here’s a little taste into the wonders that are the Wild Beasts, Little Comets, Reptar, and Everything Everything.

“Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants” by Wild Beasts

I’m a Ravenclaw, I like to read books.. we’re better in Stereo!

So there are those songs that are relentless for being so catchy you feel bad for listening to them but you just can’t seem to get away. This song for instance, plays continuously on Family Channel (Yes, I do watch this sometimes while I’m waiting for my show to come on), and while the lyrics seem to connect with me on an odd level, the tune is catchy, and to be frank, I’m not sorry I like it so much. AH-HA a twist! So here’s to the quirky song from Family Channel and I’ll add another song for your listening pleasure, which is totally awesome and I love and it’s by Ministry of Magic. Enjoy!

“Better In Stereo” by Dove Cameron

Oh oh ah oh.. Songs for a Friday Evening.

Through the magical world of twitter and the account of the phenomenal magazine (and my absolute favourite) Company Magazine I discovered the band of HAIM. This group of girls whose hair is pretty similar to my own, just made me love my own long hair even more. But enough about hairstyles and my hippy like locks and swerving WAY off topic, lets get to the music.

The few songs by them that I came across are an infusion of different time periods, perhaps even different genres. A little 80s, a little 90s. They’re tunes that catch your ears and linger there. Infiltrating your mind and pushing it to listen to the song just one more time.
