Consider The Source / by Randy Ortiz

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMq5HL32tbs&w=500] This is a Jhombie post... for those that don't know who he is, well I'm sorry you don't. Anyways he introduced me to a band called Consider The Source a while back but I never talked about them until now. These guys are fantastic especially when your giving their music the headphone treatment. Their sound takes elements from Middle Eastern music while combining them with psychedelic spacial sounds and rock... honestly it's hard to really describe perfectly. One of the best things about this band is that the sound created takes you to a different place or thought somehow. At first I didn't think I was going to like them, but after I listened to them while going home from work that changed quick!

Peep the video and let me know what you guys think. Also if anyone knows this band already and has played Phantasy Star Online look up their track called "Tihai for the Straight Guy"... please tell me I'm not crazy and say this sounds like the online lobby music for the game PSO hahaha! Jhombie said he asked them, and they said no... but I'm not convinced! Or maybe I just played that game too much, yeah that could be it.
