I’m a music whore.

What, you want me to blog about my current favourite band?

I’m still really loving Beirut but the new band I’m telling people about is Nightmare Of You. Actually, I haven’t told anyone about them yet but I’m doing so now. So you’re the first, congratulations!

While I don’t really like the whole comparison thing, I’d say that Nightmare Of You sounds like a cross between The Magnetic Fields and OkGo. They have some very literate lyrics much like Magnetic Fields or perhaps Crooked Fingers but a little more upbeat, like OkGo. Kinda early 80s Manchester? Whatever it may be, I really like their sound. My favourite song is probably ‘Dear Scene, I Wish I Was Deaf’ from the album, Nightmare Of You. It’s been added to Hipster Mix Volume 12 which I’m starting to compile.

This is another album that I’ve downloaded in its entirety (along with their demo and some other tracks) but will purchase because I like to support smaller artists that make excellent music that will not see heavy rotation on TRL. (Although maybe they will? I don’t watch TRL or any tv for that matter). To be 100 percent honest, I’m not sure where I first heard about them. It doesn’t look like from any music blogs but probably from NME. I probably read about them and liked what was being said. I’m not sure if they’re emo or not, I hope not because I think I hate emo bands and they did open for Fall Out Boy. They’re not as whiny as most emo so I’m hoping they’re not. Ryan?

Anyways, check out their MySpace or website and have a listen. See what you think for yourselves.
