Neon Bunny “Oh My Prince”
Ok, this is awesome. We really, really, really are digging this song. Like, this is gonna go on our iTunes (if we can find it somewhere!) and then loop it like crazy. Or we’ll just play it over and over again on iTunes. Side note: does iTunes have a loop option yet? I know some of you kill the replay button on videos, and some of you have found a way around this. LET ME KNOW. This song needs that kind of treatment. Maybe it’s not your thing: but it’s SOOO our thing. It just dawned on us that it sounds like Yelle, a bit. Kinda. Funky electronic with a gentle girl voice. And it’s in a language that isn’t English! That might be it.
Anyhow, this is only the second song by Neon Bunny that we’ve ever heard, and we’ve loved both songs. Any other songs you’d recommend by Neon Bunny? I’m worried that we’re missing out on some other life-changing songs…
Ondahl “Similar Girl”
Ok, time to change up the pace and era a bit. Neon Bunny’s song was very 80s; this song, on the other hand, very 50s, except for the electric guitar, which I don’t really associate with the 50s. Is it a part of the 50s? Our music history is kinda weak.
Anyhow, am I the only one that hears Sweet Caroline in this song? All I could think of is “Where it began/ I can’t begin to knowing” You know. The beginning of the song. Not the hands touching hands part. I don’t hear that here. Ah! We always hear lots of other things in songs. I’m not sure if that’s a bad thing or not. Let’s just call this a Neil Diamond/Spoon mashup…with Tubas!
The Koxx “Love Dance”
Hey Ryan. Here we are writing to you two weeks in a row for our K Crunch Indie segments. Anyhow, just wanted to say thanks for the request. We totally let this video slip through the cracks when we were on vacation. That whole month is a bit of a void for us. Anyhow, that’s not the point. Point is: thanks Ryan for two awesome song suggestions. We totally forgot about the Koxx after we talked about them long time ago. I thought they did something with 4Minute, didn’t they?
Anyhow, we’re really quite impressed with this song and video. We love how they shake their heads to the music. The editing’s great for that. But the song itself is just such a great balance between hectic and smooth. It’s a great, great song, and supposedly they’re awesome live. One of these days we’ll see them live. ONE OF THESE DAYS!!!
