In high school, I was one of those kids who was “really into music”. Well okay, I wasn’t one of the kids who knew first about when a band was coming, or who bought t-shirts of my favorite bands and knew trivia or anything like that, but I was a kid who blasted Radiohead in the car and laid in bed with my eyes closed while Brandon Boyd poured meaningful lyrics into my soul or Jim Morrison drunkenly read me poetry.
These days, my discovery of music usually consists of Stan force-feeding me bands he likes until I like them too (actually this is a pretty good system) or my brothers sending me links to youtube videos.
Well blogland, this is the equivalent of me sending you a link of a band that I really like, and that I found all by myself!
If you don’t have time to sit and watch the video, at least push play and listen to the song while you do something else. Yeah, I like it that much.
It gets even cooler though, especially for us house lovers. Here is the description of the album:
“Ghost, released in March 2007 on Morr Music, is a concept album based on the idea of houses retaining stories of things that have happened in them. Each song is a story and some of the stories are told from the house’s point of view. Cooper cited an old house he lived in as one of the inspirations for Ghost. Most of his work on the album was conducted in an old tool shed behind his house.”
How freakin’ cool is that?
