Fire Tiger

Technically speaking, I'm not really posting this for being weird per se. I'm sharing the musical magic of Fire Tiger, because I'm crushing on them with the power of a thousand eighties rock ballads this week.

However, for the sake of Weird Music Monday's legacy, I'll point out that the weirdest thing about this music (other than the unnatural depth of my love for their sound) is probably the fact that this music comes from a relatively new LA band - hard to believe that whilst listening to them, because when I do, I feel transported back in time.

Housebound
Coincidentally, the initial trailer/review I saw for WWDITS, also made a reference to this New Zealand film - so naturally I had to see it too.
What I specifically enjoyed about it, is how they mixed in just enough silly dark humour into the story to give you a…

High School Confidential

When I told my sister about my latest blog venture (sharing weird & lovely music every Monday), Joné said that High School Confidential was the first thing that popped up in her mind, so let's give it a minute (or 3.5)...
