The Ging Nang Boyz can be pretty disorienting to listen to at first. Their music covers everything from hardcore noise-punk to sentimental ballads to folk to radio friendly pop hits. Everything's performed with this intense straight in your face energy that makes the deeply personal nature of it all quite hard to ignore.
This is their discography to date. Two albums and two singles. Enjoy.

Paul Baribeau is the best folk singer in America. Have I listened to all the folk singers in America? No. Have I even listened to more than 1 or 2 of them? No. But Paul's the best.
He sings about normal things that everyone has felt or experienced. Like crying because you're so lonely, or realizing how wonderful life is, or being in love. He sings without embarrassment and with pure, unflinching honesty.
So I was having trouble deciding what I should post next. There's like fifty things out there look tempting; but I don't want to just go at it all willy-nilly like. So I came up with this stupid system that I'll use for the next couple of posts.
Things that I post have to be
1. Totally awesome
2. Things that I'm currently listening to
3. Sort of go well together
And here's the first one.
Mir are a tiny little band from Tokyo Japan. They have one(1) tiny little E.P. out from call and response records (a totally awesome record label that you should all support monetarily by the way). Their record label describes them this way
Gorgeous, brittle melodies punctuated by bursts of rage and self-destruction.
Most of the record seems to be about loneliness and lashing out against an unjust world.
1. 時代と個人 - The Times and the Individual
2. ピストル - Pistol
3. 百年後 - A Hundred Years Later
4. 世の中みんな批評家 - The World is Full of Critics
5. だましているのさ - Just Deceiving You
I hope to talk more in the future but for now I'm tired of this emptiness and just want to get this place bumping a little bit. This is a compilation, released earlier this year, of the hottest new club DJs outta Buenos Aires. Dance away everybody.
