Are Kings Of Leon good again? The last time the Nashville quartet released an album I genuinely fell in love with was in a pre-global financial crisis world. Then, times changed. The world became a very different place. The Kings of Leon responsible for the 2007 masterpiece ‘Because Of The Times‘ no longer seemed to be scrapping for a fight. They appeared to be replaced by a polished stadium rock act that wrote predominantly for label executives and TV commercials.

I was scrolling through the endless abyss of recommended music when a name so gloriously unique (ahem, Winnetka Bowling League) caught my eye. I clicked, prepared for anything… and then, magic. “Sha La La,” the latest single from this LA trio and from the opening notes I was head over heels. The song washes over you in a wave of unabashedly indie-pop instrumentation, reminiscent of sunny California days and carefree drives with the windows down. But beneath the deceptively cheerful […] The post Weekend Videos: Winnetka Bowling League – “Sha La La” appeared first on Cougar Microbes ..read more

When the buzz started swirling around The Last Dinner Party I admit I felt a flicker of scepticism. An all-female indie band riding a wave of hype felt, well, too good to be true. Yet soon enough, “Nothing Matters” seduced my taste buds and refused to leave. Its anthemic melodies and fiery lyrics became an undeniable addiction. Like that one dish at a restaurant that keeps you coming back, it became my musical guilty pleasure, a flavour I couldn’t resist […] The post “Prelude To Ecstasy”: A Grandiose Feast by The Last Dinner Party appeared first on Cougar Microbes ..read more

Let the record show, that my editor, a self-proclaimed lyric video hater, initially resisted this review. It took a spirited argument, fueled by my unwavering belief in the magic of “Desert Mile” by Yumi Zouma, to sway him. After relenting and giving it one listen, he was equally under its spell, his scepticism replaced by a sheepish grin. Consider this review a testament to the song’s irresistible charm. Besides, as far as lyric videos go, this one is pretty poignant. […] The post Weekend Videos: Yumi Zouma – “Desert Mile” appeared first on Cougar Microbes ..read more
