Reviews In Real-Time: The Shane Song by Belle Rousse

10561737_501957769906766_7625922742622691304_n (1)

A good mark of a successful song, no matter the level of success, is the “catchiness” of the song and the ability to be embedded in your head for a long period of time, making it seemingly impossible to get out. That is what the upcoming single by Belle Rousse, “The Shane Song”, does. We here at the Airspeaker Podcast were given the honor and opportunity to preview the track before it’s official release on September 10th, 2014 and so far it has not left my head.

With it’s infectious and poppy beats, this is a fun summer tune for your summer parties or cruising down the coast. It does have a certain Weezer-esc quality to it in which it has a simplistic approach lyrically but musically it still delivers a fun time. Included in the song is a question asking what it is about this boy Shane that makes him “so mother-fucking cool”. Leave it to a girl from Alabama to make California style tune.

Belle is a past, and hopefully a returning, guest on the Airspeaker Podcast who made her debut with an interview and with the song “IDKU” from the E.P. “Expressionate” on Episode #36 of the podcast.

So in summary, I was already a fan of her music – discovering her music through her Twitter – and her inventive versions of cover songs, so I wasn’t surprised that i would like this song. With “Speakers” being our version of stars, I give this song 4 out of 5 speakers. I gave this track a few listens and after every listen it just grew and grew on me. I’m interested to see what you all think of this song. I am also interested to see what more she has in store for us in the form of an upcoming album and beyond.

On this our 50th episode, we assembled the whole crew.. Ed, Will, Joe, and Kris to record the episode before they watched WWE’s Summerslam. But before that, Ed and Will get together for the intro and they discuss they phenomenon that is the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS awareness.

 

After that, the brotherhood try to find out what the Hot/Crazy Matrix is. They also talk about mashable.com’s list of the 14 Guilty Pleasure songs. And finally they talk about the “Polish Selfie”… and no it’s not what you think.

Thank you all for listening! This is our Season Two finale! Thank you for the first 50 episodes. Hope you stick with us for the next 50. Who knows what it can bring and who knows who will be on!

Reviews in Real-Time: Capital Cities

In_a_Tidal_Wave_of_Mystery_by_Capital_Cities_artwork

Artist: Capital Cities
Album: Tidal Wave of Mystery
Released: June 4, 2013

http://www.capitalcitiesmusic.com

Written by Raul Leon – @VillainMy

Capital Cities is a dynamic duo (not of the Batman/Robin variety), a musical dynamic duo, reigning from Los Angeles. It’s members Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian have been collaborating musically since early 2008 when they initially found and met one another through a Craig’s List ad!!! They initially composed “jingles” for various advertisements and commercials. After approximately 3 years of success with jingle writing they decided to venture and create a musical collaborative, Capital Cities.

As Capital Cities they released their first album “Tidal Wave of Mystery” which includes their first hit single, “Safe and Sound”.
Their second single “One Minute More” (my favorite of their songs and the reason why I was ever compelled for my writing this review) arrived on the airwaves shortly after as yet another hit single. I feel that Merchant and Simonion found the perfect balance between a U2 style epic stadium rock and married it with an emotional and inspiring dance music. It truly is a beautiful piece. Simple and never forced, it flows naturally and gracefully.

With at least 2 hit singles in their pockets, two things are certain (listening to their other material):
1) these guys certainly are having fun with their music…
2) they truly have a feel for writing some catchy ass tunes…

I look forward to hearing what they create next? Check these guys out if you are looking for some fun heartfelt music.

Airspeaker’s Review in Real-Time: So right off the bat you get a hint of a Paramore influence when you first hear Open Sails, but don’t let that fool you. From their hometown of Calgary, Alberta Canada, they come at you with their first indie, self-titled, album with just a purely great hard rock/pop album that goes through strong track by track and quickly ends, leaving you wanting more. Great music by the band and strong vocals by Joy Lynn will make this a band to look out for in the near future whenever they come out here to the states. Choosing a song to play first from the album was a bit difficult with songs such as “Breakdown”, “Take It All”, and “Sunsets”, but we decided to go with “All of Me”. We hope to play more of them in the future and hopefully have them on the podcast! Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. (4 1/2 out of 5 headphones)
