Friday 5×5

Friday 5×5 is our segment where we give you five new tracks to check out and give ourselves the challenge of describing said tracks in only five words.

Friday 5×5

Friday 5×5 is our segment where we give you five new tracks to check out and give ourselves the challenge of describing said tracks in only five words.

Today we have 25 words total for 5 songs that totally don’t need us yammering on and on for you to get the point and that point is: they good. They real good. Check out the self-explanatory goodness from Airships on the Water, Matan Arkin, The Delines, Butterfly and Half Shadow after the jump.

The B-Side: Cody Uhler

Whether you call it 8-Bit Rock, Glitchpop or Super Nintendo Shredding (no one calls it that, but they should) you know it when you hear it. The instantly recognizable bleeps and bloops of our youth re-contextualized into classic pop, rock, punk, metal or hip hop song structures. It’s usually at least a little silly and always a lot of fun, but seldom is it as sophisticated as “Fairy Tech” from Cody Uhler is. This is less of an appropriation of video game culture for pop exploitation than it is an original composition that could serve as the coolest soundtrack to the coolest level on the coolest game. The power ups and extra lives are strong with this one.
