Flying Lotus - Coronus, the Terminator:  Smoothness from You're Dead.

GFOTY - Secret Mix:  What the fuck is this and why can't it just last forever forever forever forever FOREVER?

Glass Animals - Gooey (Klaves Bootleg):  Oh come on you know how I feel about pop house.

Isolator - Cast into Blood:  The album is "Culture & Principal of Anti-Human Exaltation" and that tells you pretty much everything you need to know.

La Dispute - Hudsonville, MI 1965
La Dispute - Scenes from Highways 1981-2009:  My 2 favourite tracks from last year's Rooms of the House.  Oh emo inflection, you do you.

Listener - Good News First:  AHHHHHHHHHH I LOVE THIS SO MUCH.  You remember this guy?  I DO!  I had to look him up to verify this is the same guy who put out a record back on Mush Records over a decade ago.  This this this is quite wonderful.  I recommend his new album Radical Friends.

Llyona - With You:  More sexy rnb tipped.

Lorde - Team (Autograf Remix):  For some reason I just never bothered much with Lorde but oh hey here's this thing and it's better than doughtnuts.

MP3 blog 2015/04/14

blog 2015/04/14 - oh we're not having any of this

Wake up in the morning and feel like a monster:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150414.zip


Algernon Doll - Candy Striped:  Jangle indie rock from the new album Omphalic.

G-Eazy - Why Thank You:  Feel good, laugh evil.

Howard Stelzer - Untitled (excerpt):  droooooooooone from Brayton Point.

Hundred Waters - Down From the Rafters
Hundred Waters - Murmurs:  While pretty darn pretty, The Moon Rang Like A Bell just didn't grab me as a whole.  Something odd?  The remix album works far better for me.  Yeah, how often does that happen?

Ilhan Ersahin - Freedom:  This one just stuns me.  From the 2010 Istanbul Sessions.

Ingar Zach & Miguel Angel Tolosa - Astoneaged:  New for 2015: Loner!  God I love this album.  If you like textural ambient ish, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Kendrick Lamar - Hood Politics
Kendrick Lamar - i
Kendrick Lamar - Institutionalized ft Bilal, Anna Wise & Snoop Dogg:  Do I need to say much about To Pimp A Butterfly?  Will probably ride in the top 5 hiphop albums of the year.  It's pretty darn great.

Manic Focus - On the Horizon:  Perfect little downtempo breaks package

Mighty Mouse - That Piano Track:  Smiling rave mouth!

The Mountain Goats - Animal Mask
The Mountain Goats - The Legend of Chavo Guerrero
The Mountain Goats - Werewolf Gimmick:  They said it couldn't be done, but goddamnit he did it.  An entire album about wrestling, Beat The Champ fine J.D. in top form as a storyteller, jumping from the POV of classic wrestlers, back to himself and reflecting on his childhood relationships.  Give this one a chance.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Wuki - Talk:  Fucking rave on you crazy diamonds.

blog 2015/04/09 - just a raucous extended mix for fart noises

This is not the discourse we want, but the discourse we deserve:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150409.zip


Clark - Banjo
Clark - The Grit In The Pearl
Clark - Winter Linn:  This is quality electronica like mama used to make.  Stick to your bones classics, traditional goodness with years of experience behind it.  Eat your fucking vegetables.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND this self-titled album from 2014.

DoublePlusGood - Never The Same:  I picture the singer dancing around with one of those super skinny Bob Barker kind of microphones and damn does he have moves in my head.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Piss Crowns Are Trebled:  HOLLA!  Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress is amazing.  It's practically just an EP, but it is perfect in length and execution.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Hiss Golden Messenger - He Wrote the Book
Hiss Golden Messenger - Southern Grammar (Live at WXPN):  Mmmm the new Southern Grammar EP is short and sweet.

King Capisce - Never Spoken:  Now this I could do more of:  post-rocky music that has the horns way way up in the mix ala Cinematic Orchestra.  Fuck yes.

Leon Bridges - Coming Home (Early Mix):  Oh now this is just everything right.

Merdarahta - Poverty Will Spread
Merdarahta - The Dark Clouds:  Hoooooooly hell, As The Dark Clouds Swept Away We Could See The Sunset is AMAZING.   HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Moxi - Hold Me:  Well this might help with the comedown.

Quickie Mart x BJ So Cole - CashRules:  BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY

The Good Husbands - Today ft Ryan Caraveo:  Smooth and happy, this is like a sandwich on a balmy day.

Wild Beasts - Daughters
Wild Beasts - New Life
Wild Beasts - Past Perfect:  I had never really been in to Wild Beasts before, but these tracks from the new record Present Tense catch enough of the magic I dig for to turn my head.

MP3 blog 2015/04/01

blog 2015/04/01 - oblivion

welcome to the fiscal:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150401.zip


Brian Eno & Karl Hyde - A Man Wakes Up
Brian Eno & Karl Hyde - Celebration
Brian Eno & Karl Hyde - Daddy's Car:  Someday World came out last year and my god what a great find.  It's like a post-punk newwave album from the 80s that went in to hiding for a few decades and solely worked on training and refining itself.  It is an absolute pleasure.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Deafheaven - From the Kettle Onto the Coil:  Adult Swim singles program.  Holy shit.

Dusky - Nobody Else:  Always want that straight up deep house ish.

Elijah Ocean - Ride It Out:  Sweet country folk from Bring It All In.

Elliphant ft Skrillex - Only Getting Younger (Milo & Otis Remix):  Fiiiiiine just one little bit of skrillex I guess.  We've deluted him though.

Iceage - Forever
Iceage - How Many
Iceage - On My Fingers:  Plowing Into The Field of Love is my first deep listen in to Iceage and I am feeling about it the same way when I first heard Titus Andronicus' first two records.  A voice that had so much personality and presence and uniqueness, I couldn't pull myself away.  I am getting pulled in and it's great.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Machinedrum - Flycatcha ft Body Language
Machinedrum - Sacred Frequency:  Room(s) and Room(s) Extended, yo.

Phox - No Lion (Boom Forest cover):  Oh god I love somber acapella folk.

Raleigh - Still Light:  Sounds Canadian.

Rubblebucket - Sound Of Erasing (The M Machine Remix):  I love everything about this: the vocal stylings, the beats, the mixing.  So good.

Teach Me Equals - Coelacanth:  This gets props just because COELACANTH IS THE COOLEST FISH THING EVER.  Better than frilled sharks.  Better than mermaids.

The Last 24 - Let Go:  And away we go!

MP3 blog 2015/03/24

blog 2015/03/24 - this will make you fall asleep

mostly because you can't stay awake forever I am sorry:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150324.zip


Anna Of The North - Sway (The Chainsmokers Remix):  Oh god this hits all of the pleasure points at once.  I am rendered incapacitated.  Please don't tickle me in my moment of blissful paralysis.

Bleachers - You're Still A Mystery:  Like a throwback to 80s pop, from the album Strange Desire.

Blonde Redhead - No More Honey:  Perfect little subtle track from 2014's Barragán.

Cherokee - Don't Matter ft Darianna Everett:  The groove on this is just so addictive.  Those synth pads!  That funky bass guitar!  The vocals!

Dolor - Our Number:  Dark bass sex in the vein of FKA Twigs is always appreciated.

Dream Mclean - Network (Chase & Status Remix):  Every once in a while I indulge in a slice of well-balanced trap, and this hits so many of the right notes.

How To Dress Well - Precious Love (Cyril Hahn Remix)
How To Dress Well - Words I Don't Remember (The Range Remix):  My two favourites from the What Is This Heart? remix album.

Sam Smith - Stay With Me (Rainer + Grimm Remix):  Wasn't this guy nominated for some kind of award?  Ahh well, it's all about the remix here.

Spoon - Inside Out
Spoon - Knock Knock Knock
Spoon - Outlier
Spoon - They Want My Soul:  I saw a few glowing reviews about the new album They Want My Soul and so had my expectations up high.  And yes, it is a good album.  If you like Spoon, you'll probably love it.  And I do like Spoon!  But after listening a few times, I just didn't find a lot of NEW and EXCITE within it, and at the end I was left with a few songs I really digged and then moved on.

The Gnostic Trio - Gnostic Hymn
The Gnostic Trio - Into the Light:  Transmigration of the Magus is Zorn's eulogy for Lou Reed.  It's a lovely little album and has a quiet reverance.   It is not an essential Zorn piece for me though, as something about the textures and composition just doesn't make me want to spend more time around it.

Vince Staples - 65 Hunnid
Vince Staples - Blue Suede
Vince Staples - Hands Up:  Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Hell Can Wait is so damn good.  Beneath Run The Jewels, but def one of the highlights from 2014.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

MP3 blog 2015/03/17

blog 2015/03/17 - imagine the last time everyone at this mall has broken down crying

Can we parse this as a totality or as a void?:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150317.zip


99 Souls - The Girl Is Mine (radio edit):  Super sweet pop house edit.

Andrew Thomson - Bus Pass:  DEDICATED TO ALL MY TORONTO PEEPZ (especially those that ditched for BC…)

Ariana Grande - Problem ft Iggy Azalea (TKDJS Remix):  And now we're just back to the pop house.  What is wrong with me?

Autechre - 444:  While not a new track, this came around again as part of a bootleg 12" sided with some AFX.  Classic.

Captain Murphy - Cosplay:  NERD.

Curve - Falling Free (The Aphex Twin Remix):  Flipside bootleg release that went around!

Fractures - It's Alright:  The notes of Bon Iver shimmer for me.

Francisco The Man! - Loaded:  Jangling indie pop from the new album Loose Ends.

- deus sol invictus
- heliogabal I:  Heliogabal is from 2010 and it's a textural electronics playground.  Some joyous headphone listening that feels modern but also harkens back to the intrepid days of 1994.

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings - Retreat!
Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings - We Get Along
Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings - You'll Be Lonely:  Give the People What They Want doesn't quite give me everything I want, but it has a few songs that connect with the groove I oh so love SJ for.  If you're a diehard fan, you'll love the new album.

Sufjan Stevens - Fourth of July
Sufjan Stevens - Should Have Known Better
Sufjan Stevens - The Only Thing:  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA NEW SUFJAN STEVENS!!!  Carrie & Lowell is SO. GOOD.  I am missing the epic psych jams, but hey, a return to fine folk form is A-OK too.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Districts - 4th and Roebling:  Perfect singalong bar rock.

MP3 blog 2015/03/11

blog 2015/03/11 - the thaw reveals our shame

smile at the big reveal:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150311.zip


Aphex Waits - sampler:  Much more pleasing to me than the Aesop Waits crossover, this little dabbling mix works pretty great for me.

Born I Music - I Can't Breathe ft MacGuyver:  3 tracks in this update all entitled I Can't Breathe.  Motherfucking trigger warnings…

City Of Glass - Geographers:  I've loved pretty much everything I've heard from City Of Glass.  Just enough bombast in this pop.

Damien Rice - Long Long Way
Damien Rice - My Favourite Faded Fantasy
Damien Rice - Trusty And True:  NOT GOING TO LIE, there are some many parts on My Favourite Faded Fantasy that I totally recognize as very much inspired by my favourite parts of 'O', but FUCK IT I DON'T CARE, this is what I want to cuddle with.

His Name is Alive - African Violet Casts A Spell:  Thumbs up for the splish splash production alone.  From the new album Tecuciztecatl.

Holy Ghost! - Bridge & Tunnel (a/just/ed Remix):  Unnnf just some great deep house grooves.

Lemongrass - Deep River (Ficture Remix):  Moody all over this one, and I just soak it up.

Ms. Lauryn Hill - Black Rage (sketch):  Oh god this is staggering.  And it is a total coincidence I have this in the same release as the 3 I Can't Breathe tracks, but OK it fits.

Pleq - Do You Remember Your Dreams:  Can I get nostalgic for 2009 dreamy IDM yet?

Pussy Riot - I Can't Breathe:  Ripped from their intensely claustrophobic music video, everything about this is staggering.

Sales - Chinese New Year:  ahhhh a perfectly sweet reprieve between renditions of I Can't Breathe…

We Are Temporary - I Can't Breathe (In Memory of Eric Garner):  Last one, still devastating.



THIS WEEK'S TRACKS

Aphex Waits - sampler

MP3 blog 2015/02/26

blog 2015/02/25 - that's it, we're done with this

fuck winter:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150226.zip


Adam F & Cory Enemy - When It Comes To You ft Margot (Rags Remix):  Sweet pop bass on that post-garage 3.0 tip.

Alvvays - Next of Kin:  This reminds me of a happy fusion of so many indie folk pop faves. A+

Ben Frost - Nolan (Regis Self Medicating Edit):  I am a huge fan of Frost's catalogue but his recent releases have left me sighing a bit.  I could not get in to Aurora, and on the remix front only this track really sparked me.

Chaka Khan x Tensnake - All Good (DJ Katch Blend):  CHAKA! CHAKA KHAN!

Danny Byrd - Bad Boy (Back Again):  I always make time for checking new Danny Byrd and oh this jump up track from 2013's 4th Dimension puts a huge smile on my face.

Eboi - As I'm Falling ft Little Jinder:  Good verses, but oh the rare joy of a slick chorus package.

Elderbrook - Rewinding:  This has a groove like a James Blake track, but with a bit of an edge off the sorrow.

Emika - Searching (Radio Edit)
Emika - Sing To Me:  2 smooth cuts from the 2013 album Searching, Emika's dark-tonged rnb really needs a second listen, especially now that FKA Twigs is blowing up.

Gold Panda - Enoshima
Gold Panda - My Father In Hong Kong 1961:  These are my highlights from the album Half Of Where You Live.  The first being a great plodding IDM track, the second evoking 20th century minimalism with great flair that I hope inspires other producers.

James Vincent McMorrow - You Know:  LIKE. BUTTAH.

Lowell - The Bells:  awww yus new cancon electropop!

Mina Tindle - I Command:  OK OK more great pop!

Night Panther - Desire:  Even the band name screams 80s!

Panda Bear - Untying The Knot:  This came on and I was like oh cool this is an awesome Panda Bear tribute but OK for reals Panda Bear has ditched a lot of the things that I feel were dragging down their enjoyment.  Check this B-side from the Noah EP.

Pharrell Williams - Happy (Kaytranada Edition):  We all know Pharrell needs to lay low and let the synth bass simmer a bit longer.

Sigur Rós - Sæglópur (Austin's Fault Edit):  I am kind of shocked there hasn't been much more of this since dayyam this is some sexy breaks.

The Twilight Sad - Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave:  By all measures, Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave is a GOOD album, but for whatever reason it just didn't grab me.  It didn't excite me like so many of the others.  AM I DEAD INSIDE?

Years & Years - Take Shelter (Stal Remix):  EPIC ELECTRO POP YESSS



THIS WEEK'S TRACKS

Adam F & Cory Enemy - When It Comes To You ft Margot (Rags Remix)

MP3 blog 2015/02/17

blog 2015/02/17 - Only you and the night.

You can't hold it all back:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150217.zip


Angela James - Drink And Try Not To Cry:  Oh god!  *bawls*

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Whipped:  Quiet little number from Singer's Grave A Sea of Tongues.

Dan Mangan + Blacksmith - Vessel:  Dan's epic qualities hit a perfect peak on this great track from the new album Club Meds.

Death Grips - Runway J (1)
Death Grips - Runway N (3):  Fashion Week is all about the beats bout the beats bout the beats

Disclosure - Confess To Me ft Jessie Ware
Disclosure - Grab Her!
Disclosure - Help Me Lose My Mind ft London Grammar
Disclosure - Latch ft Sam Smith:  Oh hey just a reminder that Settle is one of the best dance albums of recent years.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  How do you not own it yet?

Four Tet - Parallel Jalebi (Hudson Mohawke RMX):  Like peanut butter and fucking chocolate.  No wait, don't like, fuck chocolate, but ummm.   Nevermind.  Nice track.

Grubby Mitts - To a Friends House the Way is Never Long:  This is one of those tracks that springs up out of nowhere and you're like holy shit how did life get so awesome?  Oh fuck it, no who cares that The Books broke up because here comes Time is What Stops Everything Happening at at Once.

Kappa Kavi - Challenger:  The post 8-bit era gives us the ecstatic video game music that Lazer Swords promised us.

Mark Molnar & Craig Pedersen - IMOO Vol 4 (100) live improv:  2 Ottawa jazz heavyweights go head to head, recorded live at an IMOO event.

Prince - Funknroll (Canblaster Remix):  Did you know Prince still is releasing albums?  No?  Yeah apparnetly Springsteen still does too.  No, really.  Welp, thank goodness for the remixers, distilling this down to the prime goodness.

SidiRum - La Danza De Las Trompas (Cocotaxi Remix)
SidiRum - Le Soleil (Umoja Remix):  Groove chill party bass all the time

The Decemberists - Cavalry Captain
The Decemberists - Lake Song
The Decemberists - The Wrong Year:  I'll say it plain:  What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World is not a spectacular album.  It is about 50% really good, and a few songs meh, and a few songs have some cringeworthy parts that I skip over them faster than you can say "Rocks in your socks".  So yeah, give it a spin and sift out the jewels.  And here is to hoping they'll reward us in a year or two with an epic rock opera about the mythology of gold prospectors suffering oxygen deprivation.

Bjork - Atom Dance ft Antony Hegarty

Tinashe X Dubbel Dutch - 2 On X Rare Earth (Flight Mix):  All slinky up in this bass bin.

You - 100 Lanterns:  Whispy and delicate pop world to end it all

A Tribe Called Red - Burn Your Village To The Ground:  hoooooooly shit amazing.

Arca - Bullet Chained
Arca - Thievery
Arca - Xen:  Xen is a bit of a wankery showcase.  I really love it, but like, it comes across as a scrapbook more than a whole album.  Tonnes of great stuff, and this guy did stuff on Bjork's new amazing record.  Recommended for the twitchy electro heads.  It's dark and badass.

Elisa Luu - Shebeen:  From the album Enchanting Gaze, this is all sorts of magic in my brain right now.

Hag Face - Bendy Wendy
Hag Face - Dirtbag Dreamboat/BRAT:  Totally on this ride.

Jar Moff - Commercial Mouth:  This is ambling and organic and ultimately deeply satisfying for me.

Leonard Cohen - Samson In New Orleans:  Lovely little number from the new album Popular Problems

Round2Crew - Booty Had Me Like (Club Killers Remix):  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  WOAH.  Loko.

Sleater-Kinney - A New Wave
Sleater-Kinney - Bury Our Friends
Sleater-Kinney - No Cities To Love:  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  YESSSSSSSS

Taylor Swift - Blank Space
Taylor Swift - State Of Grace (Recycle Culture Remix)
Taylor Swift - This Love:  Tswift gets lots of love, but meh, whatevs, Blank Space is pretty rad, and the whole album is just great pop music.

MP3 blog 2015/01/14

blog 2015/01/14 - I'm just listening to SK all 2015 so screw off

I know this is what we made me:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150114.zip


Aesop Rock - Bug Zapper
Aesop Rock - Cat Food:  NEW AAAEEESOOOOPPPPP

Christian Tiger School x World's Fair x Bilal - Spanish Robin Williams:  Slinky pop mash!

Damon Albarn - Lonely Press Play:  My standout pick from the new album Everyday Robots.

Dev79 & Buddy Leezle - Summertime Champions:  You know me, I love seasonal gunclapper tracks that are totally weather appropriate.

Düve - Karv:  I'm done.   I'm done with deep house.  I'm done with any deep house that doesn't have live drums and an oboe.  FUCK NON OBOE MUSIC, AMIRIGHT?

Grouper - Clearing
Grouper - Holding:  These are tracks of quiet  beauty from the new album Ruins.  I like Grouper, don't get me wrong, but most albums are just to meandering and flat for me.  But this, this one gets a RECOMMENDED.

Haim - My Song 5 (Movement Heiko Mix):  Pitch down is best pitch.

John Zorn - Tria Prima
John Zorn - Trinity:  The Last Judgement!    Mike Patton roars on the metal psych jazz journey.  It's…  OK I'm not down with the whole thing.   But if "metal psych jazz Mike Patton" are things you google for on the regular, then you should probably show this disc some love.

Laura Mvula - Green Gardens (Djemba's Fest Edit):  Super synth fest bass!

Oscar & The Wolf - Strange Entity (Friends In Paris Remix):  Sweet pop electro goo all over.

Soft Pink Truth - Black Metal (Venom cover)
Soft Pink Truth - Grim and Frostbitten Gay Bar (Impaled Northern Moonfrost cover)
Soft Pink Truth - Satanic Black Devotion (Sargeist cover):  Gay electronica death metal covers.  You know you need this.  RECOMMENDED: Why Do the Heathen Rage?

Swan - Lodge Master 2:  Psych jam bar rock maybe?

Tove Lo - Habits (Young Wolf Hatchlings Remix):  Jaaaaaaaaammmss

Wet - Don't Wanna Be Your Girl (PURPLE Remix):  Welp, I wanna be yr SOMETHING.  Your choice.

MP3 blog 2015/01/07

blog 2015/01/07 - chew the drain

Your doom will quiver under this squirrel-agility:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150107.zip


Aesop Waits - Dirt City
Aesop Waits - Knife Dance for the Whole Family
Aesop Waits - None in Japan
Aesop Waits - Shore Thieves:  Tom Shall Pass is the latest in the tradition of cute mashup albums, and it freely available online.  These are the tracks on it that really work for me.

Asva - Caprichos 180:  You know me, I look the smokey doom jazz extendadancemixes.  Taken from a split with Burning Witch.

Bon Iver - Minnesota WI (VUURWERK REMIX):  Yeah I like it when he sounds like an RnB diva as well.  Groovy.

HyunA - Red:  KPOP BAAAAABY

John Zorn - Sammatek
John Zorn - Tappuha:  The Testament Of Solomon is some magical smooth jazz.  It isn't peak Zorn genius on this front, but gives a few glimmers of that low down groove genius.

Lorde - Royals (Soft Glas Remix):  Come on, let me have this one tiny guilty pleasure. (ok and all of the others….)

Misun - Goodbye Summer:  I wonder if the timing of this song is off???  NAH

Odesza - Say My Name ft Zyra (Ambassadeurs Remix):  Sexy Bass part 1

Paces - Can't Touch Me ft Madeline Vida:  Sexy Bass part 2

Rapoon - Banjo Arabiata
Rapoon - Bells Temple Ask
Rapoon - Cello Transfused:  Cultural Forgeries has lots of futzing and spinning and presents a lot of itself in very simple meandering terms.  Was not expecting this, and I am still diving in to it, but if you like eclectic instrumental experimental music, there is a whole vast world here.

Saint Pepsi - Fiona Coyne (Maxo Yo-yomix):  Total Max Tundra vibe on this one and I love it appropriately so!

Let's start getting ready to wrap this shit up:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20141209.zip


AlunaGeorge - Best Be Believing (TYR Remix):  It's uncanncy how great Aluna works in this remix, it's a near pefect synthesis.

Faith No More - Motherfucker:  Oh look what it is for xmas?  The new goddam FNM single!

FKA Twigs - Closer
FKA Twigs - Pendulum:  LP1 is stunning.  Highly recommended.

Gent & Jawns - Kings:  Great bass slamming floor filler!

James Vincent Mcmorrow - When I Leave:  it's got the great groove, but omg that organ sound.

Machinefabriek - Aether, Rotterdam:  While there is no dearth of Machinefabriek releases, I just happened to be listening to Bad Fortune from 2011…

Perfect Pussy - Interference Fits
Perfect Pussy - Work:  UNF.  So inense.  So beautiful.  So HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Phoenix - Bankrupt! (Gesaffelstein Remix):  Just dark enough.

Sun Kil Moon - Jim Wise
Sun Kil Moon - Micheline:  So I will say this album Benji comes recommended, but, SPOILER ALERT: EVERYONE DIES.  No, really.

The Beverleys - Bad Company
The Beverleys - Dreams:  Kick ass rockfest up in here.

The War On Drugs - Burning
The War On Drugs - Under The Pressure:  Lost in the Dream fuses 80s synth pop with Dylan crooning in a way I find seductive and almost always irresistible.  Recommended.

MP3 blog 2014/12/03

blog 2014/12/03 - we ache in a good way

and smell like a shower:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20141203.zip


A Sunny Day in Glasgow - Boys Turn Into Girls (Initiation Rites)
A Sunny Day in Glasgow - Golden Waves
A Sunny Day in Glasgow - MTLOV (Minor Keys):  Sea When Absent has some epic blissout and driving crescendo.  Get on the emotional rollercoaster.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

FKA Twigs - Papi Pacify
FKA Twigs - Water Me:  2 bits of sublime future sounds from the EP2.

I am David Laing - Marmalade:  Propelling folk from Please Don't Mind the Words.

Jennifer Lopez ft Iggy Azalea - Booty (Dom Corleone Remix):  Yes, all booty, no patooty.

Jessie Ware - Say You Love Me (Gorgon City Remix):  Jessie is always stunning but oh with this deep house wrapper, it's divine.

Lykke Li - Heart Of Steel
Lykke Li - Just Like A Dream
Lykke Li - No Rest For the Wicked (Remix ft A$AP Rocky):  The dance pop is toned down.  The album is I Never Learn.  And Lykke Li needs a big hug.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  Oh and hey here's a rework with A$AP on it for you!

Maker - Love It (prt 1 & 2):  Breakbeat CDs are often just way tooooo muuuuuch.   So many breaks.  Shooting the Breeze was like that too, but I had to just pull this nugget out.

Odesza - Say My Name ft Zyra:  Odesza brings the beats as always, and totally hot once again.

Pharmakon - Bestial Burden:  While def not for everyone, I'm def recommending Bestial Burden for it's cathartic drama.

The Lowest Pair - Moving On:  Oh my gosh, my heart, IT ACHES.

Tiefschwarz - Kraft:  This goes back to 2010, but I needed to get my tech on.

Tourist - I Can't Keep Up ft Will Heard (Dub Mix):  Smooth it own with some slick vocal house.  Good night.
