I've been forced into taking a break from writing for a few weeks due to a constant stream of sick kids. First it was the oldest, then the youngest twin, then the youngest twin is hospitalized for dehydration, then there's a few days of awesome day job work where I'm getting back into the backlog of work to do, and then the oldest is sick again. To say that I'm sick of being home is a fucking understatement. I've never in my life wanted to get the Fuck out of this place more than right now. But kids are kids and will get sick and you can do nothing but apologize and kick ass when you get back into the office I guess.
So paired with my frustration with life, I've been kind of frustrated with music as of late. It isn't that I don't have a shitload of music to listen to, it's that I haven't been able to tell anyone about it, and I can't necessarily force the shit, or I'll sound like I'm getting paid to do this shit.
Leitbur's EP titled Think of Tomorrow was the shit I needed to get me back on the whores.
Leitbur means "dangling man wrench" in Indiana.
Leitbur is some dude from LA who makes dancey chillwave type electronica, but the shit sounds exactly how I imagine life would sound if I were starring in the Val Kilmer classic Real Genius. It's got that 80s romance, those distant layered vocals, and the simple feel about it that life can seem like a movie, as long as the soundtrack kicks fucking ass. Think of Tomorrow kicks fucking ass. If I had to throw band names around to convince you of its awesomeness, imagine Sevonica and Anything Box on a date to a local putt putt spot where one sinks a hole in one and they high five in mid air, and Germany Germany is watching from the bushes and he's fucking jellz bro.
If Vision Quest was to be remade in 2012, which isn't a stretch at all, Leitbur's title track Think of Tomorrow would fit as the perfect fucking song during one of the many Matthew Modine workout sequences. It's intense with that calm focus that most movies lack now a days, with the exception of Drive of course. Speaking of which, Leitbur shits on most of the Drive soundtrack, and I know I'm pissing some of you shitbricks off by stating as such.
Think of Tomorrow is as near perfect an EP as I can recall stumbling on all year. Whichever label lands this dude as their new flower child will probably end up making money on the muthafucker because dude has a vibe on fucking lock yo.
****EDIT: HOLY SHEEPTESTICLES BRADMAN. Dude is having a remix contest for the track that makes me want to masturbate on the beach - LISTEN TO SOME OF THESE!
*******EDIT EDIT! MANCUB DROPPED ONE AND IT'S fucking AWESOME!
Then listen to the original shit below the soundclouderz. YOU DICK!
