“Every kind of music is good, except the boring kind.” – Gioacchino Rossini
Hello all & welcome to my first posting of Profound Broccoli! Finally I have arrived at TSURURADIO!! It’s been ohh just a wee bit since Tsuru, very out of the blue, asked me to contribute to TSURURADIO. Many apologies for the delay!! My brain has been this salty, twisted pretzel trying to materialize something that would blow your socks off because frankly, that’s what you deserve! Now the lovelies of TSURURADIO already do so…but I want to do it Dorice styles, the Profound Broccoli way! I suppose a little intro of who exactly this Dorice chick is would be in due order. I’m from the land of maple syrup & mounties (aka Canada). I live in the birthplace of Neil Young and was born & raised in the city where he grew up & began his music career (you crazy Neil Young fans will get what I’m saying). I do various things, live life, have some adventures & try to find my purpose. Of course I, like you, am a huge music fan. Daily, I scout out the music happenings & search for new favs. I luv, love, LOVE going to live shows and actively check out a fair amount (so I’ll make sure to pass on my recommendations & stories).
“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” – Victor Hugo
So Tsuru gave me total freedom to do whatever I want with this (one of the many reasons we luv him so). After rubbing my hands together in that Mr. Burns/evil villain sort of way & mustering up quite an evil *mwahaha* laugh in a drunk with power of the freedom moment, I snapped back to a more Profound Broccoli state of mind. (Why Profound Broccoli may you ask? Well I guess you’ll just have to come back round these parts again to find out now won’t you?! Didn’t think I was gonna give it all up on the first post did you?) So… so if you’re still w/ me excellent, you’re my type of people. What will I be doing here with Profound Broccoli? To be honest, I’m not entirely certain at this juncture. All I know for sure is that I’ll try to expose y’all to some great music & random mutterings. I’m purely going to be talking/posting stuff that I like. I’m hoping that by checking this out you may find a new fav, re-discover a long lost luv or *cross fingers* maybe explode a mind or two but at the end of it all I’m just going to be doing what I dig. If you do too then totally raad! If not, I’m not gonna hold it against you! Maybe just try again next time because my music taste, like my personality & life, is pretty random. I almost always keep people guessing at what kind of stuff I like. That whole idea of being tied to a specific genre box just doesn’t work for me (I don’t buy that whole “I like everything” statement either!). Now I think I’ve done quite enough chatting for today don’t you?! Shall we get into some music? Yes lets!
Sleigh Bells – A/B Machines *Seeing them next week. If they come your way do not miss out!
Music you can’t sit still to. Noisy & loud distorted guitar electro rock w/ attitude power pop female vocals.
Harlem – Friendly Ghost
harmonic lo-fi spasm music.
Frog Eyes – A Flower In A Glove *Canadian!!
just listen. absolutely amazing track!
Woven Bones – If It Feels Alright
lo-fi grime haze rock.
Shark? – Fear!
noisy cacophony of lo-fi distort & drums w/ twang melodies.
Surfer Blood – Swim (To Reach The End)
if the Shins were drowned by a group of surfer rockers who were engulfed by a rogue wave, they would be the ghost.
Some new favs:
Math the Band
*Mark Sultan aka BBQ is the second half of the killer band The King Khan & BBQ Show. If you dig the sound of BBQ then you might also want to check out his new project The Ding Dongs w/ the equally raad BLOODSHOT BILL
