Cashmere Cat - Adore ft Ariana Grande (MssingNo Remix):  Soul n bass yesss

CHVRCHES - Empty Threat:  I haven't given the new album Every Open Eye a fair shake yet, but I'm loving this track.  I’m sure it's all aces.

DéBruit - Percute:  This is a sublime little groove.

Eternal Summers - Together or Alone:  Fuzzed out indie rawk from Gold And Stone.

Hamilton OST - Cabinet Battle #1
Hamilton OST - My Shot
Hamilton OST - Satisfied
Hamilton OST - Washington On Your Side
Hamilton OST - You'll Be Back:  Hey guts, psstt, I think this Hamilton thing might be kinda sort good.  You heard it here first.  #tastemaker

Miguel - Coffee
Miguel - What's Normal Anyway:  I've posted some before, but here's a reminder that Miguel's Wildheart is an instant classic and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Mr. Carmack - EGO (Woolymammoth Remix):  Normally dubstep is in the stupid bin, but these reaches a level of delicious depth and floats along perfectly.

Philippe Battikha - Beyond You:  Smoothness from Invisible Backgrounds

Pops Staples - Somebody is Watching:  Oh gosh this is all so perfect.

MP3 blog 2016/01/17

blog 2016/1/27 - a little bit of samba time

stock up on jerky:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20160127.zip


Adam Port - E Sound Edit:  Get this groove.

Alias - Crimson Across It ft Doseone
Alias - Gold cLOUDDEAD Skiez:  The 2014 album Pitch Black Prism didn't quite grab me, but I was in to these two.

Alice Glass - Stillbirth:  Yeah OK she's still got it.

All Dogs - That Kind Of Girl:  Oooo I love this track from Kicking Every Day.

Boyfriend - Same:  Deepcore.

Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr - Gone:  All about that whistle, baby.  Take notes, Hot Chip.

Gallant - Weight In Gold (On Planets Remix):  The bass, the horns, the vocals: total package.

Glass Animals - Gooey (Love Taps Remix):  Oh this one is hot right here.

Hannah Cohen - Lilacs (Hidden Fees Remix):  Like finding a b-side from The Sundays on a warm Saturday morning.

Hermitude - Ukiyo:  Oooh this is hot + sexy.

Koloto - Life in Clay:  Hot clicks oh my I'm all about this.

Natalie Prass - My Baby Don't Understand Me
Natalie Prass - Violently
Natalie Prass - Your Fool:  Chalk it up to my failure as a human being in 2015 that I did not listen to the stunningly power slef-titled album from Prass until now.  This is what I always dreamed all "Adult Contemporary" could sound like.  Dramatic, powerful, and utterly charming.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Mynabirds - Wildfire:  Close it out with this excellent pop number from Lovers Know.

MP3 blog 2016/01/21

blog 2016/1/21 - we can define the times we need alone

there is no pingback:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20160121.zip


Alabama Shakes - Don't Wanna Fight :  I just wasn't feeling the new Sound & Color as much as their last album.  This one came off as more following familiar lines and didn't push anything new, but still a few great tracks, and everyone ELSE seems to like it, so hey there's that.

Beecher's Fault - Carroll :  From the new album Do As People Do, some massive indie pop.

Claire - Games (Henry Krinkle Remix) :  Oh I love me some electropop smootheness.

DMA's - Laced :  New single sounds just British enough.

Dotorado Pro - Love Marimbas :  Love marimbas, indeed.  Also love their deep groove.

Hundred Waters - Show Me Love (Big Wild Remix) :  OH GOD JUST TAKE ME NOW MY BODY IS READY OH YESSSSSSS

Novalima - Beto Kele (Nosotros Somos) :  Did I mention deep?

Sharon Van Etten - Just Like Blood
Sharon Van Etten - Pay My Debts :  I wasn't totally aswoon with the new I Don't Want to Let You Down EP, but these tracks got in to me.

SmCity - Cracks In The Pillars :  Amaaazing track from the 2014 Empire Fals

The Acorn - In Silence (Enantiomers) :  Vieux Loup is a slow builder of cold stunning beauty that has to just simmer inside yourself.

The Cxde - Blue Ocean Floor :  Hey it's ok, the boys need to catch up to FKA Twigs eventually too.

The Nebulas - Cosmos 954
The Nebulas - It's GO! Time :  Dipping back to 1993 for It's GO! Time… surf rock extraordinaire

Titus Andronicus - Come On, Siobhan
Titus Andronicus - Dimed Out
Titus Andronicus - Lonely Boy :  I loved their last album, but the new one, The Most Lamentable Tragedy, just kind of lost me halfway.  Or more specifically, I lost steam.  It's an epic musical, but I just couldn't slog through it, so I chopped out some of my favourite singles.  YMMV

MP3 blog 2016/01/12

blog 2016/1/12 - find the groove and try not to atrophy

Oh how we like to delude and distract:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20160112.zip


Adam Cleaver - The Salt Mine:  Sometimes you have no idea how youi stumble on stuff and you're just like welp here's something that's randomly lovely.

Bomba Estereo - Soy Yo:  awwwwfuck yeah bassss

Chance The Rapper - Israel ft Noname Gypsy:  Totes chill and I love how Noname slides all in there so smooth.

Deafheaven - Brought to the Water
Deafheaven - Gifts for the Earth:  Missed in 2015, seems the kids these days like their banshee metal.  Pretty amazing.  New Bermuda is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Eskimeaux - Broken Necks
Eskimeaux - The Thunder Answered Back:  Another overlooked winner: O.K. is full of so much charm and fun, with the brooding innocence of an Eric's Trip album and the confidence of Tune-Yards.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Jason Isbell - 24 Frames
Jason Isbell - How to Forget
Jason Isbell - If It Takes a Lifetime:  I wasn't quite as in to this album as the stark solemn beauties of his prior album, but Something More Than Free has a few great tracks that are indispensable.

Merry Ellen Kirk - Ever After:  It's that big final scene, she grasps for the curtains and stares up at the stars, filling herself with the silence of the universe.   There must be some way out of this life.  And that's when she notices a flicker.

Miguel - Leaves
Miguel - Waves:  Wildheart is a big pile of incredibly sexy soul.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  Get on this pile.

Natasha Alexander - Black Bodies:  Well this is all sorts of devastating.

Rae Spoon - I Know I'm Not The Only One (Sam Smith cover):  oh swoon

Thundercat - Them Changes:  This is worlds of awesome.  The break, the funk, the piano, the horns, my gawd.

Tobias Jesso Jr. -  Can't Stop Thinking About You
Tobias Jesso Jr. - Leaving LA:  Oh and here's another one I slept on, and perhaps the most shameful of the lot.  Goon is like if Ween at their most saccarine jammed with Beck at his most earthen folk.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

And with a gurgle we are BACK:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20160104.zip


Alex Clare - Up All Night (Nadastrom 98 Re-Fix):  Work that groove, let's get going.

Champagne Drip - Champagne Drip Theme:  gimme dem HORN STABS

Dark Time Sunshine - Take My Hand ft Swamburger & Aesop Rock:  A suuuuper dope track from a few years back.  Aww yeah, go me, staying on top of things!

Empress Of - Kitty Kat
Empress Of - Make Up
Empress Of - Standard:  January and February are the months I scavenge the "best of" lists from other places and listen to incredible albums that I missed or didn't have time to hear last year.  This is one of them.  Glorious pop, super addictive.  For fans of Young Galaxy and La Roux.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - [new song] (live 2015-09-10):  A new song performed live?  Soooo pretty.

Nancy Pants - Apple
Nancy Pants - I Didn't Say:  This garage core is all up in my business and I like it.

Odesza - All We Need ft Shy Girls:  full on smooth breakya

Snowbride - Breathing Neon My Sweet:  Epic progressive electronics from the appropriately titled Fateful 808s.

The Weather Station - Life's Work
The Weather Station - Tapes
The Weather Station - Way It Is, Way It Could Be:  Add Loyalty to the list of other albums I didn't give enough time to in 2015.  This understated folk wonder takes time.  It needs to sit in your head, and you need to sit with it, like a Bill Callahan album.  RECOMMENDED.

blog 2015/12/15 - BEST ALBUMS OF 2015

GO STRAIGHT TO THE SOURCE:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20151215-bo2015.zip

2015 was an incredible year for new music.  Good job everyone.  You did it.  We all win.
I have my top 31 albums here, plus 3 honorary mentions.


First up, the best album of 2014 that should have been 2015 but came out December 17th 2014...
D'Angelo and The Vanguard - Black Messiah
Had it come out 2 weeks later, this would be topping every 2015 list.  And since jerkface "best of" list makers like to now release their lists on December 1st, they EMBARRASSINGLY missed this one.  Take that, listmaker doofuses. (ummm...)

The SPIRITUAL album of 2015:
Run The Jewels - Meow The Jewels
A remix project beyond compare that fills a warm special part of my heart every time I hear it.  An internet crowdfunding joke fed of cat memes, this is the hero we deserve, AND the hero we wanted.

Most surprising comeback of 2015:
Violent Femmes - Happy New Year EP
This sounds exactly like The Violent Femmes as they sound in your crusty nostalgia:  sloppy singalong songs that are addictive as hell.  I am shocked.  I never expected this to be good.


OK, now on to the top 30, proper.


TIED FOR FIRST PLACE, THE BEST 3 ALBUMS OF 2015:
Joanna Newsom - Divers
Son Lux - Bones (& Lanterns Wicks EP)
Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell


NEXT TIER, 10 INCREDIBLE ALBUMS (4-13) OF 2015:

Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit
Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear
FKA Twigs - M3LL155X EP
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress
Holly Herndon - Platform
LabField - Bucket of Songs
Mbongwana Star - From Kinshasa
Purity Ring - Another Eternity
Sleater-Kinney - No Cities To Love
The Mountain Goats - Beat The Champ


AND ROUND IT OUT 18 MORE (14-31) GOOD ALBUMS OF 2015:

Arca - Mutant
Beach House - Depression Cherry
Beirut - No No No
Bell Witch - Four Phantoms
Bjork - Vulnicura
Colin Stetson & Sarah Neufeld - Never Were the Way She Was

MP3 blog 2015/12/01

blog 2015/12/01 - even the earth is unwinding

we imagine a clock ticking towards the stillness of the universe:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20151201.zip

This will most likely be the final MP3 blog of the year.  ENJOY, GORGE!  Well, I mean the final typical one.
Coming up soon, just like every other year:  BEST ALBUMS OF THE YEARS, followed by AN ORGY OF HOLIDY MUSIC.



Arca - Mutant
Arca - Umbilical:  While still not being the singer-songwriter fest we are all awaiting, and still not quite up to the high water mark left by Amon Tobin, Mutant is wildly more satisfying than Xen and a monumental achievement of electronic music production.  Highly recommended.

Beach House - Bluebird
Beach House - Space Song
Beach House - Sparks:  Depression Cherry continues the high bars set by prior Beach House albums.  You won't be disappointed.  And apparently they released another album this year?  WTF dudes, I'm just getting to this one.  OK OK OK you're awesome.  Recommended.

Black Beach - Rats
Black Beach - The Youth is Out There
Black Beach - You're a Ghost:  Another great band I discovered at RI Garage Fest!  Totes gives me the Mudhoney vibes.

Cyndi Lauper - Time After Time (Rhythm Scholar Remix):  I think we can ALL AGREE WITH ZERO DISSENT that this is a song that needs a new remix every year?  Yes?  Yes.

Faith No More - Matador
Faith No More - Sunny Side Up
Faith No More - Superhero:  Sol Invictus took me a few listens.  I always knew it was sneaking up on me, and now it is here:  the total joy of a new Faith No More record.  It really continues an evolution that skips over the Mr. Bungle albums (which I love) and sticks to the FNM stylistic core.  Goddamn that piano.  Highly recommended.

G.L.O.S.S. - G.L.O.S.S. (We're From The Future)
G.L.O.S.S. - Outcast Stomp:  Fucking haaaaaaaardcore!

Saint Clare - Goodbye to the Ghost
Saint Clare - Moving On
Saint Clare - Out on the Road:  These are from two great EPs from a great little Ottawa band.

Torres - Son, You Are No Island:  OK I'll admit, I'm a bit underwhelmed by Sprinter.  I really wanted to like it, alas, but I'll just sit here and be haunted by this one stunner.

Wolf Alice - Moaning Lisa Smile:  Close it off with a great track from Creature Songs!



THIS WEEK'S TRACKS

Arca - Mutant

blog 2015/10/29 - midnight troubleshooting sessions

channeling that inner lain:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20151029.zip



Arca - Vanity:  New Arca track is all sorts of crunch synth yumminess.

Beck
- Gimme:  Stumbling all around itself in a glorious way, I'm super in to this new clumsily psychedelic Beck track.  The 20 minute remix, not so much.

Claude VonStroke - Can't Wait:  This is blissful deepness omg I love it so much.

Father John Misty - Holy Shit
Father John Misty - True Affection:  I Love You, Honeybear is quality music of the folk.  Even if you just want to skim the top 4 songs, the purchase is worth it.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

MP3 blog 2015/10/22

blog 2015/10/22 - awaken to a grand new day

your canadian boyfriend awaits:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20151022.zip



79rs Gang - Drama:  Hoooooolly shit this track from Fire On The Bayou is slaying me.  After Treme did a great service of introducing Southern NO music to a wider audience, let's get fire like this everywhere.

Aphex Twin - disk prep calrec2 barn dance [slo]
Aphex Twin - diskhat ALL prepared1mixed 13:  Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt 2 has this nerdy aesthetic that just grabs me.  These are not the toe-tapping butt wagglers, but colder tracks that paint a picture of a genius slaving over an ocean of ridiculous pricey nerdtron analogue gear.  For you IDM aesthetes and tech junkies, this album is for you.

C.Diab - Ice
C.Diab - Stars Fall To Flames (shootout):  New C.Diab!  No Perfect Wave is highly recommended.

EVERLAKE x Kizer - Bang With The Gang:  BANGER!

Hidden Charms - It's Time:  That loving garage rock vibe.

In Sonitus Lux - On McTell Street:  Meandering plucked drifts from The Equinox Session.

Janet Jackson - Love Will Never Do (Nude Remix):  Uhhhh did you have your money down on "hot Janet Jackson comeback" for 2015?  If so, YOU WIN!

Kings Quest - Half Hearted
Kings Quest - Tuggeranong:  The iimmediate sense of frustration you might associate with a band name like that is dissolved by the janglepop goodness of this garage fun.

Mura Masa - Lovesick Fuck:  Oh god yes, fuck me up with those steel drums.

oriJanus - Fola (OG Sade Flip):  Chiiiiil beans

Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique - Lose Control
Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique - Set Me Free:  2 great little pop tracks from the Love Is Free collab EP.

Samuel Kerridge - Paint It Black:  Hell yessss some moody industrial flagellation.

Sweatson Klank - I'm A Fool:  Chill downtempo bass hotness to say goodbye

CPI - Melt I + II (fusion) [+ bonus release]

CPI - Melt I + II (fusion)

Melt I was performed live 2015-09-04 at Carleton University Art Gallery, Ottawa.
Melt II was performed live 2015-09-05 at PDA Gallery, Ottawa.
Both performances were part of the Coalesce Festival.
The track "Melt I+II (fusion)" combines the recordings of both performances in to a single piece.

159 minutes, 363 MB
2015



From the performance press release:
“phase transition of a substance from a solid to a liquid… when the internal energy of the solid increases” A plinth, an ice sculpture, a body and CPI. Two years after a welcomed prophylactic massectomy, Cara Tierney reflects on post-surgical corporeality as sound artist CPI sonically weaves icebergs and high-tension metals. This presentation mimics a gallery sculptural installation and as such people are encouraged to come and go as they please and drop-in at their convenience.


Bonus release circa 2009, just added to the site:
CPI - Three Compositions For Dance 2009-05-14
For the final extended dance work in a performance by Lana Morton and company.

blog 2015/10/16 - slow rising screams

no it's too cold:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20151016.zip



µ-Ziq - New Bimple
µ-Ziq - Rimmy
µ-Ziq - XT:  XTLP has got my bum wiggling . It compiles 2 prior EPs with some exclusive tracks and the whole thing is a Mike Paradinas masterclass in electronica.  Super accessible and filled with all sorts of great vibes to build your next Arduino project to.  HIGHLY RECOMMENED.

C.Diab - On The Island pt 1
C.Diab - Ships:  Been listening to a bunch of C.Diab lately and these two slabs come from the glorious Beacons.  Recommended.

Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufeld - Won't Be A Thing To Become:  Ummmmmm this is kind of perfect and amazing?  Entering in to a duet, Stetson gets to chill the hell out and lay down some smooth loops for Neufeld to meld with.  Never Were The Way She Was has me pretty excited, and we just need to layer on some valiums til we get ever closer to Bohren und der Club of Gore.

Christine and the Queens - Saint Claude:  joypop from Chaleur Humaine.

Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment - Familiar
Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment - Sunday Candy
Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment - Wanna Be Cool:  Surf is an extensive document, flitting through a number of organic crunchy grooves, all anchored on the best dang wind section you've ever heard in hiphop.  Oh yeah and Chance The Rapper is involved.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

HeadBanga - High:  More bass bangs up high!

Johnny Jewel - Bullytown:  A giant bucket of darkness.

Lights - Running With The Boys (Leisure Cruise Remix):  Groove house groove

Roedelius Schneider - Hohner Omen
Roedelius Schneider - Umstunden
Roedelius Schneider - Unsettled Hours:  Tiden is a wonderful album of acoustic sounds mixed with extensive electronics processing.  It is full of lush textures I just want to nuzzle in to.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Son Lux - Change Is Everything
Son Lux - This Time
Son Lux - Your Day Will Come:  There is an aching Owen Pallett chasm in my heart that opens each year and demands to be filled.  If a new OP album has not emerged, I eye the world furiously for something to balm my wounds.  And oh here it is.  BONES fills that canyon in my heart and shoots sparks deep in to my soul.  I love this album so much.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  will melt minds.

Speedy Ortiz - Homonovus
Speedy Ortiz - Puffer
Speedy Ortiz - Raising the Skate:  New Speedy Ortiz album Foil Deer is amazing.  Better than the previous one?  Pretty much equal?  Hard to say, but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

MP3 blog 2015/09/30

blog 2015/09/30 - chopping away at the veneer of respectability

Mutually we all wallow:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150930.zip



Against Me! - Black Me Out (live)
Against Me! - FUCKMYLIFE666 (live)
Against Me! - Transgender Dysphoria Blues (live):  23 Live Sex Acts is for the Against Me! completest, I do declare.  I loved the last album, but so many of the anthems just fall flat for me.  The new material still sizzles, but yeah we're not teenage anarchists any more and the nostalgia is faded.  Like so many live albums, this is for the true fans.

Dan Lissvik - Airwalk
Dan Lissvik - Shuvit!:  Lissvil has always been a sublimely aces producer, and these tracks from Shuvit! demand your total groove devotion.

Doe - Julia Survived:  Rock out from the First Four LP.

Jamie xx - Gosh
Jamie xx - Sleep Sound:  OH GOSH INDEED. In Colour is all sorts of amazing.  Just go buy it.  Just go.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Pixies - Gigantic:  I am continuing my swim through all of the Pixies remasters, and here's a great little number from Surfer Rosa circa 1988.

Run The Jewels - Close Your Eyes And Meow To Fluff (George Barrow Remix)
Run The Jewels - Creown (The Alchemist Remix)
Run The Jewels - Meowpurrdy ft Lil Bub & Snoop Dogg, Maceo & Delonte (El-P Remix)
Run The Jewels - Paw Due Respect (Blood Diamonds Remix):  HOOOOOLLLLLYYYYY SHHHIIIIITTTTTT ARE YOU EVEN READY?  No you're not.  Time to get knocked the hell down.  MEOW THE JEWELS IS HERE!  If you haven't downloaded it yet, go and do so, as it's free.  Go buy a physical copy and all profits go to charity.  Calling it now:  these beats are better than Yeezus.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Mountain Goats & Kaki King - Black Pear Tree
The Mountain Goats & Kaki King - Supergenesis
The Mountain Goats & Kaki King - Thank You Mario But Our Princess Is In Another Castle:  Woah, another great surprise I stumbled on!  Black Pear Tree EP came out 2008 but I just found it now and ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I want to compile a mixtape of all of the MG songs featuring women vocals, because there are a few and they are all pretty great but woah Black Pear Tree, an unstoppable force.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Thomas Scholz - Mimesis (Rampue Remix):  Lowkey ecstatic electronic blissout

Two Gallants - Incidental:  Fab rock from We Are Undone.

MP3 blog 2015/09/22

blog 2015/09/22 - bastion of poor faith

all of the rarest pepes can't bail you out:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150922.zip



Beirut - August Holland
Beirut - Gibraltar
Beirut - So Allowed:  The new album No No No is a delight.  It's lovely.  No, it's not quite as amazing as his prior albums, but that's like comparing a A- to a string of A+s.  Still: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Cathedrals - Harlem (BØRNS x Tommy English Remix):  Perfect electro pop nugget.

Chick Quest - Explain Yourself to a Bat:  You just gotta start trying it.

Island Apollo - Lion Eyes:  Just imagine an 80s glam rocker leaning on his mic stand towards the camera singing this.

KloË - Grip:  Epic soaring, release the eagles!

Pixies - Debaser
Pixies - Here Comes Your Man:  Oh hey a few years ago the Pixies albums were rereleased, so going through those again.  Here's 2 from the Doolittle remaster.

Quasimoto - Astronaut
Quasimoto - Catchin' The Vibe
Quasimoto - Seasons Change:  Yessir Whatever came out in 2013, a collection of bsides and rarities and reworks and such.  And it's probably one of the best Quas albums thanks to it's conciseness.  RECOMMENDED.

Sean McCann - Character Change
Sean McCann - Reservations / An Exchange of Courtesies pts. 1 & 2:  Music for Private Ensemble is an absolute delight and a surprise.  Fusing lush textural ambience with contemporary classical, I have nothing but love for this release.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Suffix - Come With Us:  Sweet pitched vox + bass.  God I'm good at coming up with genre names.

The Mountain Goats - Blood Capsules:  New Mountain Goats single!  I think this was a record store day thing.  It's awesome.  Flipside was a dubbed instrumental, so uhhhh kinda perfect.

Window - Ytopi:  This is just some bomb beats idm goodness.

MP3 blog 2015/09/10: Daphne Music Vol. 005

blog 2015/09/10 - Daphne Music vol 005
   
back on the dace floor:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150910-daphne005.zip


It has been too long and so we are back with another mix of favourite songs of my daughter!


Not much to explain here, except, say, the Lykke Li.  It might be a bit of a pacing shock, but let me explain.

Lykke Li came on during a car ride and my daughter started asking about why the song was sad.
Then soon after she kept saying "I want the sad song!" on subsequent rides.
Eventually she started singing along to the songs, improvising lyrics as to why Lykke Li was sad, and what we could do to make her feel better.  (Give her hugs and kisses.)
