Weekly Discoveries

Jon Pardi's What I can't Put Down, is pretty solid country music, though it does hit a few too many cliches to great. Easton Corbin's I Can't Love You Back delivers the simple story telling of country music using clever wordplay, all without a girl dancing in Daisy Dukes; well done! Alas, it's also a terribly sad song, too. Oh well, you can't have everything, I suppose.

Dreams by Nuages, starts off with a simple voice over sample which sucks you in. It's a great example of how a little talking can totally pull you into a song.

Alt-J's Breezeblocks is a remarkably shot video, even if the subject matter is a bit extreme for my taste. It's racked up 129 million views, all from a band I'd never heard of (not that I'm authority on these matters, to say the least).

And there's just something disarming about Avalache's Since I Left You, that makes it my favorite video of the week. Definitely worth a watch.

On the non-music side of things, I've included one of Teoh Yi Chie's drawing tutorials. I love how he verbalizes his drawing process, taking a subject which seems mystical and turning into one that's quite logical. He describes a series of simple rules he follows that turn drawing into an almost near algorithmic process. It's awesome.
