Our favorite Belgian band THOT has just released a music video today! We love this band, and everything they put out. We have featured them before on our site here and we even featured their song The Shy Summer on our Migrate Music Mixtape Vol. II – Alignment Of Sound this month. (Its free to download)

From THOT,

“This video was shot in an undergroud house in Belgium and features Claudia, the guest vocal on The Shy Summer (she’s also singing on Spellbound Fields).
We are actually working on setting up an European tour for February 2012, that will go through Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Hungary and maybe more. Some gigs have been already confirmed and we just CAN’T WAIT! By the way, if you are interested to invite us in your town or to play acoustic gig in your room, feel free to get in touch with us at booking@thotweb.net

About acoustic shows. Silent. 2 are confirmed. First (a private one) will takes place in Paris on 17th September (Some of you will maybe receive invitations) and the other one will take place in Prague around 10 october. More details are coming soon.”

So you can watch the video below, AND you can download the original version of The Shy Summer HERE.

Listen to music by MOTEK






I came across this band thanks in part to another Belgian band Thot. And I’m so glad I did! MOTEK offers up music that would make any and every post-rock fan happy, but they somehow manage to have a great vocalist and still keep the post-rock feel. Their guitar notes are gripping and the accompaniment of piano on the track Tryer is absolutely beautiful.

I have been very impressed with all the amazing music that is coming out of Brussels and Belgium. And MOTEK is another shining example of an amazing band that will surprise you.

So sit back or browse the web, and let MOTEK take care of your music for the next 20 minutes.

Anyways, as for the album Obscured by the Wind, its amazing! The hard driving post-rock tunes and captivating vocals are simply fantastic. I could not get enough of this album! The heavy guitar mixed with industrial electronic music makes for a unique sound that will get you pumped. One moment Thot puts together a crunching measure and then follows it up successfully with soaring sounds and notes. Beautiful!
