Theme Week - Top Album Covers
Hey, folks! If you haven’t noticed, we’re pretty big fans of music over at Soundboard. We’ve all spent a nice chunk of time on Tumblr (years and years now…), and, naturally we also enjoy art, not to mention the fact that Viu is an actual artist. There’s a lovely intersection where both of these things meet: album art! We’re here to celebrate our favorite album art of all time for the next week. While we promise not to overuse the word “aesthetic,” we’ll be showcasing the stuff that we appreciate. Enjoy!
Love,
The Soundboard Panel

Come on! Hop on board, it’s gonna be a fun week at Soundboard!

Kyuss – Green Machine

I’ve actually heard the name of this band quite much, but laziness has been winning all this time and never really got the moment to check them out (oh, no!). Not until a week ago, when the light bulb in my head turned on and suggested me to check Kyuss out for once and for all.

And what I found was this song, Green MachineWHOA. The beginning got me moving my head up and down, and down and up. Super distorted guitar that sounds like a freaking bass. Then vocals, drums and bass join the feast.

Fell in love with it instantly. I guess… I guess I believe in love at first listen.

… Do you?

RefusedNew Noise

Felt like posting something intense today because I’m falling asleep and I really need to finish my work. This song fits the term ‘intense’ quite well.

I remember not liking them at first but that often happens to me with some bands. I gave them a second chance, and sometimes it works well and I dig the band, and then others I can do nothing more than dislike it. I first thought it was too intense and noisy for my poor ears, but ended up liking them more and more.

Let’s see what you think about Refused!

Every time this song is playing I want to jump, up, to infinity and beyond.

Nult — Guda Bahia

Last week I had the pleasure to wander around Barcelona during the Record Store Day, bought some records for my collection, but mostly saw a few local bands I didn’t know about, one of them was Nult

They instantly caught my ear, and seduced me with their music, I love post-rock, and I liked Nult, and why? because, honestly, this is just so freaking beautiful.

So, hey, fans of Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, etc, put on your headphones, or turn up the volume, I think you may enjoy Nult too. Go check them out! You can find their album on bandcamp, and follow them on Facebook and Vimeo if you like!

Enjoy,

The Upsetters — Taste of Killing

I didn’t know this song by The Upsetters, and listening to the great Trojan skinhead reggae collection I spotted it and voilà I’ve had this melody in my head all week… 

This, along with the fact of getting off work when there’s still light in the streets has brought a fake feeling of “Summer is just around the corner.lol.NOPE”. But still, it feels good, it has a nice warm sound, that will make you move even if you don’t want to. Ahh, LOVE IT.

Enjoy,

Viu.

Top Ten Albums of All Time

I’m terrible at making lists of what I think are the best albums/songs/artists/whatever, I just find there’s so many great stuff out there I kind of feel I should put them all. However I’ve managed to make a top 10 of my favorite albums of all time, so yeah, check it out!

PS: You will see that I failed at choosing just one favorite track out of each album.
