What’s up kids? Patrick Walford here with you.
School has been pretty busy, haven’t posted as much as I would like to.
Check this band out. Enter Shikari. (http://myspace.com/entershikari) They have been around since 2003 and mix Post-Hardcore, and Dub-Step (no they are not cheesy and shitty like Abandon All Ships. Fuck that band.)
These guys are well-established band in the UK who are just starting to build their fanbase here in North America. They play to sold-out crowds and headline festivals in Europe on the regular. They have recently toured over here with A Day To Remember and are currently on a headlining run with Haste The Day (sorry kids, Toronto show was last monday!)
Tell me what you think of this song below. It’s called Destabilise:

I cannot wait for Daft Punk‘s new TRON Legacy soundtrack which is set to be released sometime in late November or early December. Last week Daft Punk made a special guest appearance in New York city at Madison Square Garden with Phoenix, playing for the first time live since 2009. You will definitely hear more news on Daft Punk this year.
The last time I watched BET, 50 Cent was trying to bet Kanye that his album will do better on opening day. What happened to that guy anyway? Something worth checking out for a change though, were this year’s cyphers, televised at the BET hip-hop awards. Last year’s, featuring the likes of Wale, Nicki Minaj, and Black Thought, were a good indication of who was up and coming, as well as bringing back some classics like Mos Def and Eminem. This year’s cyphers continued in the same way. And I’ll be fully biased and say the G.O.O.D. music one was the best. Though Rev Run and Ice Cube (anyone still take Ice seriously though?) killed theirs, apparently Kanye and Common were the only one who actually freestyled their parts, and Big Sean’s verse was just too smooth.
And here I promised myself I wouldn’t write about Kanye anymore…
Part 1: Wiz Khalifa, Bones Brigante, Yelawolf, Raekwon The Chef
Part 2: Ice Cube, OMG, DoughBoy, Rev Run, Diggy Simmons, Jo-Jo
Part 3: Busta Rhymes, Reek Da Villain, Zawcain, Mickey Factz
Part 4: Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean, Cyhi The Prince, Common

It seems as if pretty girls singing in sweet voices, are fast becoming Sweden’s major export (Lykke Li anyone?). Joining an already impressive invasion into the indie scene are two sisters from a suburb of Stockholm. The duet of Johanna and Klara Söderberg gained an impressive audience with their YouTube cover of a Fleet Foxes’ Tiger Mountain Peasant Song. From there on First Aid Kit, as the girls named their duo, continued to gain popularity, enjoying frequent airplay on Swedish radio. The culmination of their work so far, is titled “The Big Black & The Blue”. To think that they are just 20 and 17! Their cover of Fever Ray’s “When I Grow Up” is just mind blowing!
Listen to it:
Also check out the original video by Fever Ray:
And since Lykke Li was mentioned, here is a video of her doing an awesome acoustic version of “Little Bit”:
Thanks for your continuous support and interest in Room Noise. Now go get that fifth serving of turkey, and mellow out to these tunes!
