Amazing suggestions today, man see Envy in live literally bring you to another dimension it was a proper experience more than a gig, it’s a shame you did not had the chance because it really worth it, I think they are touring again every now and then! Agree about the production and musicianship, they have some of the best album produced in the whole genre, musically there is a lot of care for details, as a classical musician if I have to write a score about Envy music it will be full of dynamics marking, a very impressive job in every album.
I loved how raw burn her letters are (love the band name) they reminded me Eva-01 during their first (and I think only) demo, that was such a good French band.
Danse macabre are a real classic, I love them and I agree with you with all you say, at home in Italy I have the cd of Synkopenleben Nein Danke and the split with Her breath on glass, very hard album to find, wish I had also Am I dead yet! Is such a classic.
In Synkopenleben nein danke the guitar riff in Eine Schwalbe macht noch keinen Sommer (I had to copy and paste the title ahahahah) are incredible emotional and I remember the first time I listened the track that name the album I was like “holy big f’@~#”, it was like a slap on my face, never understood their lyrics sadly ahahah but the music itself speak, such an amazing band.
Today I just want to take a stop from the skramz to go to a genre that stay in the same area but is very different at the same time, is emo but is not at the same time.
I would like to share my favourite singer ever from when I am 16 y/o, Jeremy Enigk from Sunny day real estate.
For sure you know Sunny day real estate, I have no doubt on that but I always had a more soft spot for his solo project, it happened with his Christian conversion, I am not a fan of religion but his music put me in a different path or better a different way of thinking about it, song writing is beautiful, romantic and poetic, some vocals lines and instrumental are straight outta paradise, I think Jeremy is unlucky that he can’t properly enjoy his own music because he wrote it, I am fighting to see him live and I am basically about to take a plane to America to do it very soon.
I wonder how is possible that a man with his voice and writing skills never became famous, probably he has been very unlucky because I do really think he is special in many ways.
I leave here my favourite pieces from his solo project, he has also another band called The fire theft but I am more affectionate to his solo stuff and Sunny day for obvious reasons, also when he plays live in acoustic the songs from Sunny day is heart breaking.
And here in this absolutely crazy live, this is so damn beautiful, I love when it happen that the musician get lost “in the zone” where is just music and anything else and at the moment you are not even playing the song anymore but just living it
