Somehow Overlooked: The Good, The Bad & The Queen

The Good, The Bad and The Queen

So… I’m not sure how this happened. How did I overlook The Good, The Bad and The Queen for almost two years? Their CD spent about that much time sitting on my desk and I just never listened to it. Odd. I was then called an asshole by a good friend and was told that I would love the record. He was right. Though TGTBATQ is the side-project of Damon Albarn of Blur & Gorillaz, don’t expect to hear anything remotely close to either of those two projects (even though Danger Mouse produced it). Expect to hear something gritty, something engulfed in soul, fire and extremely clever musicianship.

Go check out the songs “History Song” and “80′s Life” on their MySpace profile or pick it up on iTunes.

A Little Bit Of Information

Welcome to Air & Sea Battle. What is this site exactly? It’s a web magazine, a creative outlet and a positive community. Sometimes we recommend great products to you and sometimes we even make those products on our own. We’re artists, journalists, musicians and individuals looking to finally implement ideas that we have had outside of our day jobs. This isn’t about selling ourselves, it’s about spreading the word on great ideas and quality entertainment as well as bringing to light issues we are passionate about.

Our goal? To build this site up to the point where it can walk and talk… and eventually walk on the moon.

If you’d like to find out about advertising opportunities, are interested in joining our team of writers, have any questions, would like to send us MP3s, have press inquiries or would like to send your music, media or products to us for review, e-mail jason@airandseabattle.com.

This site is built and maintained by the fine people at Paper Tiger.

Summerbirds In The Cellar

I just ordered my copy of the new Summerbirds In The Cellar CD: Druids. You should do the same. I haven’t been this excited for a new release in a LONG time. I had the pleasure of seeing these guys live at SXSW and they put on a show that rivaled that of Muse and sounded flawless. Chances are you can only catch them live if you live in Florida or Georgia, but let’s hope they go on tour.

I’m usually not one to say this but Druids is one of the most important records of the last 5 years. I’m also not usually one of the types to use the “for fans of” but I’m going to do it anyway: I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness, Blur (Think Tank), Muse, New London Fire (huh??).
