For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. has joined the likes of Dananananaykroyd and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin as bands with far out, ridiculous names. The tactic works, though. Let's be honest, how will you ever forget the name Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin? Of course, it also helps to remember a band name when they put out a good product, which is exactly what Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. did on their cleverly named debut EP Horse Power that came out July 13, 2010. The Detroit duo of Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott describe themselves as "men of music and leisure", embracing a fuzzy synth-folk tinted with tropical influence. Horse Power includes a funky cover of Beach Boys masterwork "God Only Knows" and an electro-Andrew Bird style song "Simple Girl". Their full LP is supposed to be released in early 2011, and if it's anything like Horse Power it'll be guaranteed to thrust them onto the music scene. So let's hope for the best! Below I've posted "Vocal Chords" from the EP. Hope ya'll like it, and enjoy the weekend everybody!
