“Is there anything you can’t do with Lego?” – #MusicFriday vol. 1 (One day late because apparently I’m dumb edition)

“Is there anything you can’t do with Lego?”

That’s what @hmork asked the Twitterverse, with a link to this video:

This awesome band from Sweden is called Rymdlegage.

You can listen to their music on Spotify, and watch their videos on YouTube. Or go to their website to read more about them, and see all the places you can get their music.

What is #MusicFriday?

As you can probably tell from the title of this post, I’m starting a new weekly “thing” on my blog. I called it #MusicFriday, and as you might have guessed, it’s a play on #musicmonday and #followfriday.
In case you are unfamiliar with these concepts, I’ll explain briefly. A hashtag is a searchable tag used on Twitter, and somehow these two hashtags grew into worldwide, weekly trends.
#MusicMonday is, as the name suggests, to promote music you like. #FollowFriday is for promoting the people you follow on Twitter.

With #MusicFriday, I plan to share some of the music I discover, and music I’ve loved for years.

If you want to suggest some music, you can leave a comment here, or my Twitter: @nannirk

So, as I’m sitting here, on a friday saturday night, with a glass of brown liquid in my hand, I have but one question for you.

Do YOU like ginger ale?

***

Mr Troll: “But it’s not friday, in fact, today is saturday!”

Well mr Troll, I totally made this mistake on purpose. Of course I didn’t REALLY think this was friday… What, you don’t believe me? It was intentional, I tell ya! Intentional!

Rakka-Takka, Motherfucker!

Liker du Glee?
Liker du band som Blind Guardian, Manowar, Metallica, Iron Maiden og Nightwish?

Da liker du kanskje Van Canto også.

Jeg oppdaget Van Canto på YouTube ved en tilfeldighet, og jeg synes musikken er så fascinerende, og ikke minst bra, at jeg vil dele det her på bloggen.

Ingen gitarer

Gutta (og jenta) i Van Canto er fra Tyskland, og spiller det de kaller “a cappella hero metal”. I stedet for å bruke ekte gitarer, prøver de heller å etterlikne lyden med stemmen. Bandet har kontrakt med Napalm Records og skal snart på turné som support for Blind Guardian i Tyskland.

Van Canto er:

Dennis Schunke – hovedvokal
Inga Scharf – lysere hovedvokal
Stefan Schmidt – mørk “rakkatakka” vokal og “wahwah solo gitar” vokal
Ross Thompson – lys “rakkatakka” vokal
Ingo Sterzinger – mørk “dandan” vokal
Bastian Emig – trommer

I tilfelle du lurer på  hvordan de lager musikken sin:

Flere videoer finner du på den offisielle YouTube-kanalen.
