Now I KNOW you’ve never heard of these guys before and my blog is gonna be the first to break them ;D

If you happen to enjoy:

  1. Music
  2. Good Music
  3. Misspelling of a word to give it points for creativity (see AwesumMusik)

…then you’ll love General Elektriks.  Now I have to admit I don’t know if it is just one guy or a band he is working with but I know the lead pian…uh keyboardist goes by the name Herve “RV” Salters.  The tunes this frenchman kicks out is like candy for the ears and he kind of reminds me of MGMT so he must be doing something right.

I’ve listened to a good chunk of his album Good City for Dreamers and its the diversity in the songs that pulls you in.  You’ll have a chilled out song like Engine Kickin’ In, to something grungy like Down, to something like Raid The Radio which sounds like it should be on VH1’s You Oughta’ Know.  And the message is pretty good too.  Some stuff on that album is also REALLY obscure/weird s*** but then again that just means there should be something for everyone…who’s into obscure/weird indie artists.

I’ll leave you with this music video but its up to you to find the rest of his stuff.  Happy hunting =]
