Aussies got rhythm!

Sleepy KoalaAs promised in my last post, we continue our journey through the world. This time, we’re visiting the great country of the joyful kangaroos and fluffy koalas. However, I’m going to show you that, unlike the cute koala on the left, Aussies do got rhythm!

In this post I’ll write about the great rock & roll band, led by the skinny-legged eternal schoolboy Angus Young, the lead guitarist for AC/DC – who deliver the purest form of electricity – music!

You’ll be thunderstruck when you hear the next video…

Amazing, huh? Seeing all that people jumping  to 60-year-old rockers is not something you see everyday, even in the great city of Buenos Aires!

And what about this next song (probably my favorite, after thunderstruck)?

These guys really have rhythm, don’t you agree? They also have very sexual lyrics, but I’ll leave that to another time… 😛

Hope you liked it! 😀

Puntss, Puntss – Skrillex

A little bro of mine shown me once this electronic concept of music: Skrillex.

“Sonny John Moore (born January 15, 1988), better known by his stage name Skrillex, is an American electronic music producer and singer–songwriter. Raised in Northeast Los Angeles and in Northern California, Moore joined the American post-hardcore band From First to Last as the lead singer in 2004, and recorded two studio albums with the band (Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count, 2004, and Heroine, 2006) before leaving to pursue a solo career in 2007.[3][4] He began his first tour as a solo artist in late 2007. After recruiting a new band lineup, Moore joined the Alternative Press Tour to support bands such as All Time Low and The Rocket Summer, and appeared on the cover of Alternative Press’ annual “100 Bands You Need to Know” issue.[5]

After releasing the Gypsyhook EP in 2009, Moore was scheduled to record his debut studio album, Bells, with producer Noah Shain. However, he ceased production of the album and began performing under the name Skrillex. After releasing the My Name is Skrillex EP for free download on his official MySpace page, he released the Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites EP in late–2010 and More Monsters and Sprites EP in mid–2011. Both have since become moderate commercial successes. On November 30, 2011, he was nominated for a total of five Grammy Awards at the 54th Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist and won three: “Best Dance/Electronica Album,” “Best Dance Recording,” and “Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical”.[6] On December 5, 2011, the BBC announced that he had been nominated for their Sound of 2012 poll.[7] On December 12, 2011, he was also named MTV‘s Electronic Dance Music Artist of the Year.[8]

As I started to know more about him, I’ve found a curious arrangement of some themes, that I believe are truly well done composed.
