Mood: Missing You

17 Mar

1. m-flo

One of the reasons that I started this blog was to introduce people to new and different music that I encounter. It often seems that American listeners overlook the international market. Generally, this makes sense as music abroad often is written/sung in a different language. However,M-flo, a Japanese pop group consisting of producer and DJ Taku Takahashi and emcee VERBAL, makes good music which can be appreciated despite the language barrier with most American listeners. As to the origins of the group’s name, VERBAL had explained that it was originally “mediarite-flow,” an intended misspelling of meteorite, but for the Japanese that name was too long, and so Avex had requested that the name be shortened to m-flo. VERBAL had commented that “There’s no deep meaning to it. I guess we wanna have impact like a meteorite” (Wikipedia).

4. Byork

I’ve always found Byork a little weird. Okay, really weird. It’s not just the swan dress or that movie “Dancer in the Dark” which I expected to be an Icelandic “Dirty Dancing” (I kid!). I feel like she just gives off a weird vibe. Like she’ll suddenly look up and be like “I see dead people.” I may have also just seen the “Sixth Sense” recently. In any case, I’m all for experiencing weird things, so here’s a little Byork tune.

I totally dig Travis Barker’s drumming. He’s just so INTO it.
