Banshees in your stream of conciousness

Posted by shanoah on April 14, 2010

Today’s my birthday, but I’m sort of spreading it out over a few days, so nothing really too related to that in this post.

There were two songs I was going to post here today, though.

First, here is Stream of Conciousness, by Gabriel Ananda. This track really builds nicely. The video goes with it pretty well, too.

And if you recall my posting the song Peacebone a while back, by Animal Collective, here’s another song by them, titled Banshee Beat.

I was going to post another IOSYS song, but I found another song that intrigued me. I happened to stumble upon a song by the odd title of Peacebone being covered by JacobRuefer. The music video he posted set to scenes from Pokemon seems oddly appropriate, somehow. Very catchy cover.

Having heard that, I had to hear the original, by a band called Animal Collective. So I did. It’s a strange, oddly discordant song, set to a music video involving a girl dating a monster that looks like it’s off the set of Alien. I have to approve.

That said, I actually think Jacobs cover is cleaner, and catchier, and I actually found I enjoyed it more then the original. Still, here’s Animal Collective’s version, so you can judge for yourself.

Note: It’s growing on me on the second listen, but I still feel like I’m on the verge of a headache listening to the original because of what they did to the music in the background. I might just be somewhat sensitive to it…
