Mateo Escueta – Keep Me

Dahil marami talagang awesome na mahahanap lalo na kapag kung saan-saan ka naliligaw sa mundo ng Internet. 🙂 Ang ganda nito. ❤

“The way we are is keeping me from loving you.
I’m holding on but I can’t get through to you.
The way we are is keeping me from letting go of you.
My mind is free, but my eyes won’t see…”

Be strong, don’t fall in.
Heart attack: it will be gone.
If we just get along.”

“Since their inception, Ciudad has endured several labels to describe the band and their music. Among others, they’ve been called ‘geek rock’ or ‘nerd pop’ by both the media and their fans. But now, after more than a decade together, the group is recognized for just being one of the best and most distinctive musical acts in the Philippines.”

Techy Romantics – Dance Like Lightning

Unang araw ng legit na sembreak. Yeah.

“Do you remember
We were 18
On the dancefloor
And we didn’t give a damn”

Dance Like Lightning

Artist: Techy Romantics

Album: Touch (2009)

“Techy Romantics started out as an idea by Dondi Virrey. Coming across a beautiful invite in the internet, He thought that the name Techy Romantics, exactly describes what kind of music he wanted to create… electronic and sensitive… yeah right 🙂 Then the journey began, he registered the name in  myspace.com (around April 2008) and jammed with Camyl Besinga and Ryan Villena, which apparently became the present line up of Techy Romantics. The three had chemistry and were very comfortable with the process. The songs simply flowed as they explored music together. Its been fun and its going to be more fun.”

“Status Magazine hailed the promising band She’s Only Sixteen as one of the five Filipino bands one should know because of their distinct sound. The band, composed of Roberto Sena (lead vocals, guitar), Anjo Silvoza (bass), Andrew Panopio (guitar), and King Puentespina (drums), is all set to release their debut single Dying To Meet You, under Orion Entertainment and distributed by Universal Records.

She’s Only Sixteen takes pride in fusing the European “indie” feel to OPM, and this is evident in Dying To Meet You, which is available for download on http://www.mymusicstore.com.ph/artist/144680/Shes-Only-Sixteen.html”
