My name is Patrick and I suffer from rockaholism.
For my first music post, I want to offer up two tunes as an introduction. The first is a song called Rematch by The Trick. If you've been paying attention, you'll notice that's me. Yes, I dink around with keyboards and guitars, and I've heard some people refer to me as a "musician." This song covers one particular area of my musical background, which is electronic music. I grew up on a lot of Cure, Depeche Mode, that sort of thing, and I think that's fairly apparent in this song. I hope you enjoy.
For something that's not shameless self-promotion, check out Evil Has Never by Union of Knives. I came across this song at another music blog (Green Pea-ness) and I was instantly hooked. It's dark electronic pop at its best -- it's bold and direct, but it also demonstrates an unsettling amount of restraint and sensitivity. The song is also "Travis-Approved," so I guess that means it's highly recommended.
