MWM #2: Personalities

It is tiiiiiime! Te 2nd installment om my weird music is up!

This this “episode” we will be working within the theme “personalities”.
And since it has been so long since the first one, we will have two tunes for you!

The first one is from one of my favorite personalities from yesteryear, he was a huge Youtube personality just a couple of years ago. Sure, many people I know have heard of him or at least a tune from him. But the reactions to this song is very mixed. I think it is pretty cool though, but you will probably not like it 🙂

The second tune comes from band that I actually haven’t listened to in some time. But they are now in the process of making a new album so that is pretty interesting.
This music fits today’s theme perfectly. The two personalities behind the band are pretty fascinating (Raja Ram & Simon Postford aka Halucionogen), and the music is nothing I usually play when people are over. If I do, I usually get some funky stares aimed at me.

As usual this is my Spotify playlist for these songs. (You might even find other songs there because I put stuff there before I write about them)

 

Peace out, now I have to get some food!

MWM #1: (My “weird” music)

WELCOME TO THE FIRST INSTALLMENT OF MY WEIRD MUSIC. WE ARE WRITING IN CAPS BECAUSE I AM HYPED! ALSO, WE ARE ONLY ME, THERE IS NO WE, THERE IS ONLY ME. AS ALWAYS.

What is this then you ask yourself? Well, it is my attempt of giving you some perspective on music. Kind of.
“But how can he do that, I already listen to everything,”  You tell yourself loudly into your room filled with friends and family. Because you are not alone.

I don’t really think I listen to weird music. When I am faced with the question of what I listen to, I never say “oh, a bit of this and that” or “oh I pretty much listen to everything”, like many people do. Because you know what? That usually means that you listen to one radio station or your never expanding record collection. And for that you are banned on Mars. That is actually true. Because I am the president of Mars. Yes.

So what do I answer? I usually say “I listen to good music”.

Because I do, subjectively of course, but I would argue objectively good as well.

But somehow people like to think I listen to weird music. I’ve heard this time and time again! When someone comes over to my home, when someone watches my stream, when someone overhears what I am playing in my headphones on the bus or when I am faced with the task of playing music at some event. You name it. There are sure to be people commenting on the music and telling me that my taste is weird.

LET ME ENLIGHTEN YOU. I WILL PLAY WEIRD MUSIC FOR YOU. IN THE END YOU WILL COME TO LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DO.

MWM will be dedicated to “weird” music. NOTICE THE QUOTATION MARKS. That means that I actually don’t think it is weird.  But some people might think so and some people might not. So don’t kill me if you actually don’t think it is weird.

 

This is no attempt to be artsy, so don’t expect shitty objectively bad artsy music.

 

Ok. TLDR.

Here’s the first one. I kinda posted this on my Facebook earlier, so you will get a bonus one! It is like a Hollywood pilot TV show!


I’ve been listening to this song for a while actually, but I never saw the video until now. It is pretty cool!


This is an even older song in the MWM collection. I love it, but the singing is pretty “weird” to some people. And some can’t even stand it!

So there it is. Your first two MWM songs. Here’s the Spotify playlist for future reference.
