Muse! … and Urban

My favourite band (possibly evah!) is the British band Muse. I only discovered them 3 or 4 years ago, I’ve seen them in concert twice now and that has cemented my love for them even more. Their new album “Drones” is coming out this week and I can hardly wait to hear the whole thing!

Here’s “Psycho” from their new album, my fave for now of the few songs of the new album that I’ve already heard:

The band are a bit pyscho themselves, I do realise, but maybe that is exactly why I like them. 🙂

If you don’t know them, maybe you do know what I think may be their most well known song “Uprising”:

And “Neutron Star Collision” was made for one of the Twilight movies:

Actually, the lyrics in this last song, make me think a bit of Reverend.. er…I mean Richard Armitage’s (a bit odd) tweet of today: “You’d like to be heard & wish others might listen or notice to you? Say something worth hearing”. I really know he means well and wants to stop bullying but that sounded somewhat random to me. Then again, I often say stuff I haven’t really thought through as well, so I’ll just move on and not linger on this. Anyway, part of the lyrics of this Muse song are about preaching:

The world is broken
And halos fail to glisten
You try to make a difference
But no one wants to listen

Hail, the preachers, fake and proud
Their doctrines will becloud
Then they’ll dissipate
Like snowflakes in an ocean

Oh, and just to be sure: I do NOT think Richard to be ‘fake and proud’…

To move from one random topic to another: a “Urban & the Shed Crew” trailer is out and although I would love to hear some of the dialogue I am already loving the images! I wanted to link to it here but I see that it is no longer available on YouTube! Luckily RAFrenzy has managed to make some lovely screencaps, check out her blog post:
