You Rascal You by Hanni El Khatib

Standard

818SBlrjqcL._SL1500_[1]Hanni El Khatib rocks this tune with a hard electric guitar sound. This is off his debut album, Will the Guns Come Out.

Most of his music has a nice edge to it. He’s released 3 albums thus far with his latest, Moonlight, early this year. His music has been used in commercials and various TV shows from Californication to Luther to Gotham.

And to accompany the song, is this boring video about driving around at night and the lights of the city. All style, no substance.

All Who Remain by Beware of Darkness

Standard

An odd, somewhat blasé video about a funeral set sometime in the past.

Beware of Darkness build this song up slowly to a crescendo. This is off their debut album, Orthodox.

This alt-rock band has released just the one album, preceded by their only EP, Howl. If you like this song, you’ll probably like their other material which alternates between this sound and something a little heavier. On their website, however, they do appear to have new songs which do veer away from their initial sound into something a lot more pop-like. Yuck.
