This week's post

So I thought I'd continue to pound my favorite albums down for you guys. That's pretty much it.

Open mic is next week, not entirely sure what songs I'll be doing, but hopefully I don't suck. Regardless, let us begin! I've decided to pump out another seven albums, by the way. Sticking with the new format.

If anyone wants more of a specific artist I recommend googling the artist, checking their discography, and then googling mediafire albumnamehere.

Radiohead Hail to the Thief YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD
These guys are amazing, and this is the first album I acquired. It is also my favorite.

Animal Collective Feels YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD

Quite possibly my favorite band, definitely one of my favorite albums.

Second meeting!

Yeah, so the second meeting went fairly well. Seems like we're all starting to get a sense of our collective abilities. I can't wait for the open mic, personally.

Anyway, In celebration of indie week I thought I'd do a crazy mass indie share with very brief descriptions. These are all awesome bands, IMO.

Please note, clicking the band name will take you to their wikipedia page. Clicking the youtube button will take you to a song on the album circa youtube. Download will take you to a download link.

Circulatory System - "Circulatory System" YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD

This band is truly a gem; gentle psychedelic waves of guitar and softly cooed vocals. Awesome.

Talkdemonic - "Beat Romantic" YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD


 Department of Eagles - "In Ear Park" YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD

 Grizzly Bear - "Vekatimest" YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD

Modest Mouse - "This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About" YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD

The Shins - "Chutes Too Narrow" YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD

That's it for this massive share, guys. Hope you like the indie bomb. Read the wikis and shit, too.

This is currently a work in progress. I will edit and fill in the missing details later. - Greg

In celebration of our first successful meeting...

Alright, guys and gals. We've had our first meeting, though it was short and in the public eye of those around us it was indeed savory. If you missed it you did indeed miss a good time.

In short, we spent time out in the quad. We were directly in front of the library, and we sang a song. Karan, of course, chose a Gorillaz song. If you didn't know that Karan adores the Gorillaz, you do now.

We spent a bit of time getting to know others in the club, which went fairly well for the first meeting. I'll no doubt be a bit more involved in the next meeting. Overall, it went well.

Now, to the chopping block once again. I'm going to throw out a few albums this time, as one couldn't possibly detail the entirety of what I listen to. I am my music.

First album:
Animal Collective's album Strawberry Jam - YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD  

Alright folks, this first band, Animal Collective, is one of my favorite bands of all time; it's quite possible they actually are. Their lyrics are poetic, mysterious, truthful, and truly funny. Every word strikes true, making it impossible for me to not be entirely engaged in the music. Their instrumentation is nothing short of revolutionary, using plenty of avant-garde instruments with flying beats.

Every song on every album has a life all its own. Just do yourself a favor and pick this one up. Your ears will thank you, as long as you keep an open mind.

Second album:
Black Moth Super Rainbow's (BMSR's) album Dandelion Gum - YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD

This album is close to my heart, a syrupy blend of 70s noise electronica and vocoder based vocals. This band is truly a gem in the Electronica field, absolutely one of a kind. Just give it a listen.

Giraffes? Giraffes!'s album More Skin with Milk-Mouth (seriously) - YOUTUBE|DOWNLOAD

Math Rock at it's finest. If you don't know what Math Rock is, google it. It's far too complicated for me to explain here and now, but the basis is a heavy focus on irregular timing and ridiculously intricate composure.

This band is a duo of the best drummer I've personally ever heard, and an awesomely bearded guitarist. Together, they are Giraffes? YES! They are Giraffes! Anyway, have fun with these.

Hope you enjoy 'em. Have a nice (day/night/afternoon/morning).

The first post


To begin, I'd like to welcome you all to the Foothill Music Club's blog. Here we will announce various things, detail on events and, of course, talk about music.

Every post herein will abide by one string of consistency; we will always talk about and share at least one album. This post is no exception.

So then, first album on the chopping block:

Interpol's Turn on the Bright Lights - YOUTUBE

This album is Interpol's first full length, and is, in my opinion, their best complete work to date. There isn't a single song on this album I don't love. Interpol is a band from New York who specializes in a blend of mellow, perverted, sad, emotionally dense and poetic indie rock.

Check out the youtube link if it sounds interesting.
If you're still interested, the album can be found here:


And so the first post ends as it began, with a BANG.
