MP3 blog 2011/07/24

blog 2011/07/24 - Your last warning, your only impression.


Amazing Births - Whelm:  As far as I'm concerned this is synth drone done right.  Some of the best hints of Reich, Fripp, and Emeralds to be found here.  Off the new album Younger Moon.

Amtrac - Venice:  Sunshine bouncey beats!  Feeeeeels goooooood.

Black Mountain - Lucy Brown
Black Mountain - Shelter:  So I recently discovered this 7" from 2008 that I hadn't heard before.  Turns out, this is some of my favourite Black Mountain stuff ever.  I fucking love it.   And who can't relate to their parents finding their stash?

Florence & The Machine vs Carbon Based Lifeforms - Cosmic Lifeforms:  A surprisingly good mash!  90s techno-lite ambience mixed with Florence for a smooth-yet-epic late night chiller.

Half Japanese - Firecracker
Half Japanese - This Could Be The Night
Jad Fair - Dead Men Walks:  Epic.   Simply epic.  The new 3 CD collection "Beautiful Songs: The Best Of Jad Fair" is a history lesson and challenge and total indulgence.  So so so good for those of us that grew up with atonal avant jangley outsider rock.  A total oddball classic.

Horse Feathers - Belly of June
Horse Feathers - Thistled Spring:  Don't immediately dismiss it because of the earnestness, because that becomes part of it's charm!  From "Thistled Spring", the production is lush and rollicking and tender.

Kodak to Graph - I Keep Holding On:  Sugar coated Jackson 5 chopped and looped for your ecstasy.

Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer - Reannounce
Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer - Recat:  The new album is "Re:ECM" and I have to admit, I feel like I am supposed to be loving it much more than I am.  I like these tracks.  I like a few other tracks on here too, but the thought of Villalobos digging my holy grail ECM catalouge and reworking it is an IDEA that I love moreso than the execution.   I feel like it is my duty to gush over this album, but in truth I find a lot of it leaves me really cold.  Sift for the gems.

STS - STSisGOLD:  Uhhh yeah total hotness here.

Sunosis - Bleeder:  Slick, if not standard, IDM from the 2007 album Warmed.

The Naked & The Famous - Young Blood (Futurecop! Remix):    I posted the original back in post blog20100923, but if there was an ecstatic pop snog just begging for a ecstatic housey rework, well you know the rest.

Vanessa Carlton - Carousel:  It might be weird to say, but the melodic structure of this song kind of reminds me of They Might Be Giants.  They should really cover this song.  From the new album "Rabbits on the Run".
