Here's two new singles that have been recently released that have caught my interest.
The first is "Handlebars" by Flobot.
Flobot's an indie hip/hop group from Colorado, who just released their new album, Fight With Tools. The song has a feel that's kinda like Eminem meets Cake. It's a little odd. But it's got a very interesting message. The song is about the progress of ambition, from the carefree days of a child bragging about the little trivial things of childhood, all the way to being a member of a government who's decisions can save or kill millions of people. It's kind of a sentiment I can agree with. It seems like not so long ago that being able to do trivial things like ride a bike without using the handlebars was the most important thing in the world. Now, I have a job that gives me the power of life and death over anyone who winds up in my AO.
The other single is "Inside the Fire" by Disturbed.
The Video is a little jarring... Be warned.
The song is sung from the perspective of the Devil, lecturing the boyfriend of a girl who committed suicide. It's a dark song, with a very dark video.
Disturbed's new album, Indestructible, comes out in early June. It appears to be more of what makes Disturbed a great Heavy Metal band. Driving bass, frantic guitars, and good vocals. Hey, don't fix what's not broke.
