What’s currently playing on my iTunes! / Miri Jazz Fest 2010 promo show!

I guess playing the violin in a band has been a pretty great experience so far with awesome band mates where we can learn and support one another and most importantly have fun!

An Honest Mistake at Elevate Titiwangsa

Since I have been on a exploration adventure from middle last year till today and I’ve been submerging myself into much heavier stuff and deeper waters and it definitely has been rewarding skill wise and also on my music knowledge i mean from 5000 songs to now 15000 songs in the span of almost coming to a year!

These are the bands that have been playing over and over on my playlist, in my car and just chilling at home. If you haven’t heard any of these bands do go and listen to em! they are awesome!

Envy On The Coast

Scary Kids Scaring Kids

Janus

Saosin

Brokenscar

Limp Bizkit

Matt Wertz

Well theses are just some of the artists I’ve been listening to, but these artist definitely got me hooked to lots of awesome new techniques and inspirations in my violin and guitar playing.

Can’t wait for Limp Bizkit’s new album and I just found out that Soasin has parted ways with EMI/Virgin and are now unsigned. Hope that with them going DIY it will unleash more awesome stuff from them with no barriers and no limitations by record labels!

Well… thats all for now! Heading to the studio to jam with an up and coming artist, Diandra who will be playing this coming Friday at Laundry and Saturday at KLCC for the promo show at the Miri Jazz Fest, and I’ll be her secessionist for this weekend!

I’m addicted to Passion Pit!

Passion Pit

Passion Pit

These  guys from Cambridge, Massachusetts rocks! Their style of music is like indie, electronic, electro, dance-pop, sort of gives me the very british feel to me even though they are from Boston. Maybe thats why they signed with Columbia UK? Hmm… I guess their market base must be big there… 

Check out their music on their MySpace(click here). They have released 2 albums so far… Chuck of Change (2007) and Manners available on iTunes (and set to release May 19th 2009 on audio cd).

Manners (coming soon....May 19th 2009)

Do check them out! I think their music is quite futuristic.. I don’t know why i also keep thinking about those Car games with those funky music in the menu and selecting your car and stuff.. haha.. I guess they are good driving songs too!

Here are their links below!
