MP3 blog 2010/04/04

blog 2010/04/04 - the cogs!  they keep churning!

Hurray for the long weekend!

Me & You - The Hoop Loop
Nickodemus & Osiris - Brooklyn Ole
Nickodemus & Osiris - Mariposa ft Carol C:   Oh yes, oh yes!  We're kicking things off with a splash downtempo retrospective funk.  The Me & You track is from the Tru Thoughts 10th Anniversary collection, a FABULOUS retrospective of a greatly endearing label.  I still remember stumbling upon their first 12"s, back in a post-triphop world where only a few places like Ninja Tune were bringing quality beats to the table.
The next 2 tracks are from the almost as funky Turntables On The Hudson 10 Year Anniversary comp, and really, you can't go wrong with slinky Nickodemus beats.
Both comps are highly recommend for lovers of organic funky beats and soulful/jazzy downtempo.

Blue Foundation - Eyes On Fire (Zeds Dead Remix):  I love the indie-pop vocals, but the dubstep electro rework beat fits in really well, and doesn't just overwhelm the entire track like many other dubsteppy remixes.

Brite Lite Brite - Now That You're Around:  It's really the chorus that makes this one such a winner, but oh what a chorus.

Crimen - Bass & Diamonds ft Fresh Girls (DirtyBeats Remix):  I especially love the old school acapella dropped on this track.  You don't hear that a lot these days.

Elaine Lachica - Bewilder
Elaine Lachica - Rapture:  I had never heard of this artist before, and these are from the album I Think I Can See The Ocean.  It's always great to stumble upon something new like this.  It's not mindblowingly complex, but there's a seductive darkness to them.

Ewun - Screw Up (The Upbeats Rmx):  There's been a paucity of jungley beats on here as of late, so let's remedy that right about now.

Gooseflesh - Still Wild (Iron Toyz Remix):  Ok, whatever, I've lost my words.  It's so sunny outside.

Loscil - Estuarine:   New Loscil, called Endless Falls!  It's pretty fabulous mellow ambient electronics.

People You Know - See And Be Scene:  Brilliant pop rock fun and OMG IT IS SO SUNNY OUTSIDE

The Twilight Sad - The Neighbours Can't Breathe (Acoustic Version):  This is from the single for "The Room" and hey wait it's so sunny outside, why am I writing this?

We Are Bright & Broken - This, Our Good Stone Mother:  This is from a self titled EP of just fabulous textured acoustic ambience.  "Two studies for electric guitar, sine generator and ring modulator."

Woodpigeon - 7th Fret Over Andres
Woodpigeon - Piano Pieces For Adult Beginners:  I couldn't get in to all of their 2008 album "Treasury Library Canada", but these songs are good.  OK fuck that, I'm outta here.  IT IS SO NICE OUTSIDE.  Just load up your ipod and hit the trails.
