Can you tell that I’m a writing tutor? A grammar geek? A punctuation… proletariat?
Yeah. I got nothin’,
Just listen to the dandy in the feathered cap!
This is something right out of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, if you ask me…
This is the best thing ever. Delightfully geeky AND pretty!
Anyone ever heard of Hargo? They’re a Los Angeles-based band worth listening to. Trust me.
The band’s lead vocalist, born Hargobind Hari Singh Khalsa, is the inspiration behind the band’s name. He just simply needed a nickname. (How couldn’t he?)
Making up the rest of the band are guitarist Sanjay Parekh and bassist John Jolley, both of whom share Hargo’s passion for music. According to Hargo himself, their inspiration is pulled from such iconic musicians throughout history as Thom Yorke of Radiohead, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails - all the way down to the more unexpected, like Tupac and Marilyn Manson.
The band has officially released their debut full-length album “Out of Mankind” as of Tuesday, Feb. 28. Go out and get a copy!
For me, “Out of Mankind” is an essential listen. At times it’s irrevocably pop-y, with catchy hooks and moving melodies. But at others, it’s more than that: there is subtle inspiration pulled from acts like Radiohead, with occasionally unexpected and avant-garde elements mixed in with the more orthodox pop/rock aesthetic.
Overall, the album is very impressive. As of now there’s only been one single released off of “Out of Mankind,” that being the track “Soul Survivor.” Check out the music video - it’s worth the look!
Other recommended tracks are “Tekni-Colouring” and “Regeneration X.”
