buddy akai

12 Jan

Sometimes I get surprisingly good friend requests on myspace; Buddy Akai happens to be one of those. If you like We Are Scientists, which most of you probably do, you will love Buddy Akai. Their guitarist shreds like Keith Murray does, they have the dance beats drummed viciously, while their vocalist sounds eerily like Blake Miller from Moving Units. That’s a catchy formula if I ever saw one. With friends like Chromeo, MSTRKRFT, and Villains, I’m not surprised these guys know how to meld electronic and indie rock. They’ll be playing at SXSW this year, so here’s another good reason to go to Austin!

LISTEN:

Wishful Thinking
Cut Me Up
The Fine Line

and just for good measure, a Villains remix of “Cut Me Up” which of course is AMAZING. RE-RE-REMIXXX

some updates that will be coming up very soon are a review of the White Rabbits’ “Fort Nightly” as well as four musicdraws that I have neglected to post. also, check back at the end of next week for two new concert reviews!!
