Aural Bliss

"Presence," 2008 by Lea Keohane. All Rights Reserved.
I have never blogged about a band before, but today I was hustling through the park listening to VNV Nation's album "Empires" for the gazillionth time and I was inspired just like the first time I ever heard it. I realize it is quite likely that this will not be to many of your tastes, but to me, it is perfection to my ears and my heart. I am not kidding-when I am happy it lifts me higher, when I am sad it lets me wallow a bit, when I am working out it makes me want to work harder, when I am creating art it inspires me to be more creative. That is some serious stuff right there. The lead singer's voice is deep and sexy, with a little bit of sad to it, the lyrics are thoughtful and moving, the music is very dramatic...and gosh darnit, I can really dance to it :D Haha, sorry, I really couldn't help myself :D
Here is one of my favorites from them:

i LOVED that song! i've heard the end of it somewhere... can't remember where, though.

i love that kind of music, though. this sounds kind of like a mix between vast and delerium to me (if you're familiar with them. if not, check them out! i can recommend some good ones :)).

well i think you have just inspired me to buy the album :).

Yay for VNV!! Beloved is actually my favorite song of theirs...and weirdly enough I swear I was listening to it for the first time in a while a few days ago and felt the same way :)

It's amazing how music can affect the attitude. It's like cheap therapy.

Plus...this reminds me that I owe you a new mixed CD! :)
