THIS IS OUR MUSIC: ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN - "Bring on The Dancing Horses"

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN - "Bring on The Dancing Horses" | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN – “Bring on The Dancing Horses” .

 

“Bring on the Dancing Horses” was originally released as a U.K.-only single in late 1985, appearing in the States as the final track on the career-spanning singles anthology Songs to Learn & Sing.

 

It somewhat belatedly became the band’s American breakthrough when it appeared on the best-selling soundtrack to Pretty in Pink, an alternative rock primer for an entire generation of sullen suburban teenagers.

 

Where the band’s previous album, Ocean Rain, had been a crystalline mix of post-punk tunes and lush orchestral arrangements, “Bring on the Dancing Horses” introduced a new sound for Echo & the Bunnymen.

 

The song is heavy on the reverb to positively Cocteau Twins levels, and for the first time, the sonic focus is less on Will Sergeant’s overdubbed guitar lines and more on the layers of synths that eddy around Ian McCulloch’s vocals. Similarly, the choruses are sung by a small choir of overdubbed McCullochs, adding to the psychedelic haze of the track.

UNDER THE RADAR: REAL ESTATE - "Crime" | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

UNDER THE RADAR: REAL ESTATE – “Crime”.

 

REAL ESTATE have premiered their clip for Atlas single “Crime” via Funny Or Die.

 

Directed by Tom Scharpling, the comedic short stars actor Andy Daly (from “Eastbound and Down” and Comedy Central’s “Review”) as a broke music video “auteur” forced to auction off the creative rights for the “Crime” video to a variety of interested parties. The finished product includes “undead extreme sports enthusiasts,” product placements for a ceramics sculpture business, old-fashioned pinstripe suits, and a cameo from actor Nick Kroll (The League). There’s even an appearance by the “Westboro Baptist Church”. Check out the creative mish-mash.

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES - "Song from the Edge of the World"

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES - "Song from the Edge of the World" | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES – “Song from the Edge of the World”.

 

“Song from the Edge of the World” is a song written and performed by English rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees. It was released as a stand-alone single in 1987 in the UK and is a much sought-after release by Banshees fans due to its rarity.

 

The track is an uptempo number with strong percussion performed by Banshees drummer Budgie. The song had not appeared on any album and was not included on any greatest hits collections until 2002′s The Best of Siouxsie and the Banshees — albeit only on the bonus disc of the limited edition of the album, and in its 12-inch “Columbus Mix” version.

Siouxsie later explained that she wasn’t satisfied with the work of producer Mike Thorne during the recording sessions. This is one of the main reasons the band decided not to include this one-off single on their 1992 Twice Upon a Time: The Singles compilation.

Bassist turned guitarist, Steve Diggle gets his first and only self-penned Buzzcocks A-side single in the summer of 1979 just prior to release of the band’s third studio album, A Different Kind of Tension.

 

The track powers forward on a firm beat bolstered by tight buzzing guitars, ornamented with scaling riffs and a siren like a two-note hook that was also popular with fellow punk rockers the Clash.
