Brolin is the artist of the day. Brolin is from the Island, and is based in London.  This artist brews up a hot pot of electronic pop. Research Department failed at finding any self descriptions, so I am slinging it on my own. He grooves at a slow, heavy pace with some cool lyrics to accompany his creations. This stuff is pretty chill, and I can drive, dance or read with it blaring or tinkling.

I am gonna be clear here. If all I shared was what I loved there would be nothing but Beatles, Skinyard, Joy Division, Black Sabbath, Nirvana, the Kinks and Johnny Cash influenced music. I gotta ride that Star Trek flow and go where most rockers my age won’t go.  I do like this stuff.  I dig the thumping and the clean lyrics. There seems to be a bit of orchestration involved. Auto-tune scares the heck out of me when it comes to trying to evaluate the vocals of this genre.  Brolin sounds legit here. They throw in Re-mixes to mind screw the dung out of dudes like me.

I read Dave Grohl’s quote about shows like Idol, the Voice and whatever they want to call it, and I mostly agree with what he said ( I usually do.)  The only part, I disagreed with, was the internet and computer part. There was a time when dudes didn’t have electric, but when they figured out how to use it on instruments; Heads started moving.  I remember some old dude (me, mirror, now) that ran the first factory, I worked in, and that was when computers were entering the workplace. That guy hated computers, like they were going to end the world. I guess they did end his world in a way, but good or bad, a new world opened up for the rest of us.  The art of music will benefit or suffer due to technology, and only time will determine that.  I am not gonna be that guy in the meantime.  Brolin is cool beans.

The first video “NYC” is satisfying. The second video “Another Year” is a good warm her up track.  The third video “Reykjavik” is the track to crack that second bottle of wine on.
