Musical Revelation ^_^

Here I am--updating our sick music player, now referred to as "Ousmane--the amazing, head-bobbing, music/video-playing square," when I decide to internet search the name of the band that wrote "Chelsea Dagger," the epitome of musical satisfaction (see Ousmane's third song). Well, I check The Fratellis up on iTunes and their first album brings tears to my eyes.

Okay, melodrama aside, "Costello Music" shows off the friggin' brilliance of this Scottish hard-@$$-alternative-rock band. Their music is pure, supremely-catchy gold; it speaks for itself. You can tell this is one talented trio with genuine attitude. I don't care if I've never before heard a Scottish band in my life; these guys are the definition of rockstars. And if I'm not mistaken, it sound like there are some references to The Beatles in their songs, like if you listen to this one here:

In this one, they say "all right" a lot, just like John Lennon did in "Revolution," and they did say "military man." Oh yeah, and they have this crazy break towards the middle that's just instruments and mindless screaming that sort of makes no sense (JUST LIKE The Beatles sometimes have!!! :o Kewl). And I swear that in "Come Together" The Beatles are talking about a hippie, but maybe that's just me. ;) This one's pretty good:

Verdict: "Costello Music" blows my mind. I will keep this album on repeat as the soundtrack of my life. Well, I hope you enjoyed Nerdette Ari's musical revelation!!! Till next time, nerdette-ified world savers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

~Nerdette Ari (thinks more people should become nerdette-ified world savers. Then we could band together and actually change the future course of the world!!! :D)
