DubiousIt’s time for semi-random Friday music.

This is the post for which Your Montag traverses the myspace music scene, following the trail of comments from one page to the next and picking out the song I like best from each artist. Links take you to the artist’s cumbersome myspace music page.

[Scroll a little.]

  1. Am I HereThe Secret Meeting — This band is a collaboration between Dean Garcia (Curve) and kaRIN & Statik (Collide.) Sounds quite like Curve.
  2. HaloCollide — Since I don’t know from Collide, after the first selection, this seemed the only logical next stop. They do a neat little White Rabbit cover, too.
  3. Work WorkBORS23 (Germany) — This song was quite entertaining. It sounds, however, just like the rest of the offered selections. Drive Power sounds a little different… at first glance.
  4. little BOOSTWidow People’s Pub (Germany) — Ahhh. Moving away from the industrial stuff now. Good hard-drivin’ rock here. But their logo makes me nervous: slightly Nazi Eagle-ish. Which makes me think I should have listened to the lyrics. I hope they didn’t indoctrinate me while I wasn’t paying attention.
  5. Ready steady goThe Purple Pixels (Spain) — Sounds like a cool band to have play your house party.
  6. saeta tormentosaAquiles del Campo (Spain) — The myspace description says “Jazz / Flamenco / Fusion.” The selections other than the one I picked sound more traditional and nothing like this one. I likes untraditional.
  7. summerloveNahisha — Breathy soul singing, with traces of hip hop.
  8. How do like itDelroi (United Kingdom) — Funky beat and lyrics that mention ‘The Mothership’ in the first line. Fantastic! The live recordings are of low quality, but sound like there’s some magic there. Again, entirely different from the chosen track.
  9. I don’t want to playDubious (United Kingdom ) — [Pictured]

Top four, in case your pressed for time: 4, 1, 2 and 6.

Well, two weeks ago it was ‘electro’. This time I was worried about getting into an ‘industrial’ rut, (tough I wound up disappointed when I didn’t,) and was preemptively sensing your boredom, Dear Reader. But the worrying was unwarranted, as this time we got a pretty eclectic range. Next week I’ll try to get into a guitar-driven rock groove. Or maybe something like what we used to call ‘college rock’ back in the day.

Also, I’m game for suggested ‘starting points.’ If you know of, (or are,) a myspace music artist, and you want the exposure (to literally hundreds of readers!) that a D-list blog can bring, then leave a comment here or light up my email…
