Exploring the Intertubes with OCMD

Sometimes the internet means bad things. According to my workplace this means security threats, inefficiency, and a lot of Farmville. It also means that some of my favorite music blogs are blocked. NOOOOOOO!!!1! my office mates hear me scream. Fortunately, they have done what a good worker would do: adapt. And also send me alternative blogs.

In my first trip around the music blog intertubes today I came upon OCMD - Obsessive Compulsive Music Disorder. Awesome.

It has introduced me to 2 excellent excuses for a band:

1. Tobacco

Tobacco (or Tom Fec) is an American electronic musician. He is the frontman of the band Black Moth Super Rainbow, in addition to working as a solo artist; in both settings he works most conspicuously with pre-digital electronic instruments such as analog synthesizers and tape machines.

Feel the synthesizers below.

2. Tame Impala

Tame Impala are a "four piece psychadelic rock band from Perth, Australia" who liken their music to "a steady flowing psychedelic groove...that emphasizes dream-like melody" (source: Wikipedia)

You get one chance to figure out if you like them. (The boys and their greasy, emo haircuts want you to say yes.)
