Good morning beautiful music junkies! I hope that everyone had a fabulous weekend and is starting their Monday morning off without a hitch. Did you party a little too hard this weekend? Or perhaps, maybe you spent your weekend the way I did…relaxing with family.
Yes, it’s true. I didn’t party this weekend and I didn’t get lost in a dark club for hours while letting the sounds of house intoxicate my spirit. That would have been awesome, but I don’t plan on doing that until the forthcoming weekend. But just because I didn’t party this weekend, it doesn’t mean I’m sitting in my house with a dull look on my face. Nope, I’ve got the sounds of music and hours of YouTube videos to keep me occupied.
Speaking of videos (and the topic of this post,) I’m glad to share with y’all Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ debut visuals for “Your Love.”
TEED is actually one of my favorite producers/artists and his debut album Trouble was a nice handful of electronic-pop infused tracks. The album actually caught me by surprise, considering the fact I had listened to so many of his tracks prior to him putting together an album. I had no idea that was his official debut; TEED’s tracks have been in my playlist for a little over two years.
So you can call it a “debut” since it’s his first “real” album, but I’m just glad that TEED his doing his thing and continuing to produce music I love. I really also admire his originality, you know the entire “wearing dinosaur inspired clothing.” You can always expect to see him wearing some avant-garde dinosaur inspired headdress & clothing, so of course we get a heavy dosage of that in his new music video.
His single “Your Love” happens to be one of my favorite tracks off his album and I’m oh so glad that TEED released visuals to accompany the electro-pop-ish single.
Check out the radical visuals below. Such a beautiful video!

To simply pass the time I’ve just been listening to a lot of TEED’s tracks over and over again. A lot of good tracks out there to listen to, but I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of “Dream On,” “Garden,” “Trouble,” and “Tapes & Money.” I knew that “Tapes & Money” was going to be on the debut album, so I was anxious to see what else TEED had in store for his fans. So I was super stoked a few days ago when the album finally was released. But sadly, it’s not on US iTunes yet.
But fret not, you can still listen to his tracks on YouTube if you’re not in the mood to buy it in stores. And if you’ve got a Mp3 downloader( I have a Youtube-Mp3 add-on for Firefox,) then you can enjoy the album as well. Trust me, if you love Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs then you won’t want to miss out on some great tracks.
My Favorites: “Stronger” “Your Love” “Tapes & Money” “Promises” “Solo”
It’s often really hard for me to pick a favorite artist, but usually I have a few names in rotation. For awhile I was madly in love with M83 (still am,) but then I discovered Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and since then I’ve been falling in love with a lot of his music. Currently, his name is at the top of the favorites list.
He’s got this unique quality about him that makes him, well Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Every time he releases a new track I’m always waiting with anticipation to see what he’ll do next, and his latest single “Tapes & Money” didn’t disappoint. I initially blogged about the track when it first came out, but now TEED has releases an official music video for the track.
The David Terranova (he directed TEED’s 4play short film) directed visuals were shot in London at one of TEED’s live shows, and the lighting & massive amount of balloons creating a hypnotic dream-like effect. Not to mention, it’s always exciting seeing TEED dressed up in his usual dinosaur inspired clothing. He makes his music a lot of fun, and the costuming makes you just want to dress up like a dinosaur & dance the night away. Ok…maybe not exactly like a dinosaur, but some primitive inspired clothing. If done correctly, it could actually be a smashing success.
It’s up to you if you want to take fashion tips from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, but one thing we should commend on is his ability to produce catchy tracks with avant-garde music videos.
Peep the visuals below for TEED’s “Tapes & Money” and be on the lookout for the release of the single April 2nd on iTunes.
