Mackie Dre’s Submissions Highlights: The Ten Thousand

The Ten Thousand – Beg for Mercy

The Ten Thousand – Low Level Hum

The Ten Thousand

This one’s a little late, but well worth it: The Ten Thousand.

If you’ve been listening for a while, you know that we’re no stranger to this band, but they just released a new EP called Nausea and it’s pretty awesome.

While the whole EP plays with different genres, my personal favorites are “Beg for Mercy” and “Low Level Hum.” “Beg” reminds me personally of Beatles vocals and piano work, while also making me quite sad. It’s a gorgeous song and I definitely recommends it. “Low Level Hum” is more upbeat and offers a lengthy musical playground and Rock guitar riffs. The vocals are reminiscent of White Stripes garage sound, and the lyrics are sing worthy.

In terms of the other songs, “What’s Wrong With David?” begins with gospel-y pianos and erupts into rock and roll guitar and vocals, eventually intruding with a distorted organ sound that’s just fantastic. “Leave Home” is a bit more mellow than “What’s Wrong” and “Low Level,” but I love it no less. I particularly enjoy the way the group sings “change” and hope you’ll check it out below in the links.

Did I mention you can get the EP for free here? Check out their website and throws some likes at their wall, for me?

You know what’s coming. Here are my songs from last week that deserve many of the repeats.
