MP3 blog 2010/08/18

blog 2010/08/18 - oh shit, am I late?

Did you miss me?

Shit, it's been over a month.  I got married, had some honeymoon, had some vacation...  and all of the sudden I was all "shit, it's almost mah birthday, time to get back in to the swing of things".
And so here we are again.  The face off.   Me staring at you through the screen, wondering if you will download this next update.

So I'm back.  And look out, as there's lot of catching up to do.

Did you all get the present I left for you?
Uhhh yeah you best go and check out
193 minutes of summer dance madness!  GO GO GO GO!
CPI - Live for Original Plumbing & Toronto Pride, 2010-07-01
Seriously, it's kind of awesome.

Anyways, back to the mp3 blog!

Big Boi - General Patton
Big Boi - Shutterbugg ft Cutty:  Pretty much knocking every other party album squarely outside the fucking box, Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is here and it's shaking ass left right and center.
I mean, holy shit.  Look out.

Black Moth Super Rainbow - Born On A Day The Sun Didn’t Rise:  The guitar riffs just bleed summer lawnchair sex.
The vocals drip morning-after haze.  Total summer anthem blissout, from last year's album "Eating Us".

Blastronauts - Even the Score:  Sometimes it's best not to overanalyze rock and roll, and just enjoy the riffage, guilt free.  Movements?  Progeny?  Inspiration?  Who cares who came before, I'm rocking right now.
From the 2009 album "Galileo".

Chromatic Flights - Passagrille:  Marimba goes digital... electro-pop style!

Dirty Projectors - No Intention (Live on Sirius XMU):  It's always interesting for me to hear the Dirty Projectors, considering the complexity of their smash hit album last year.  It was so complex and intricate, you immediately wonder if it's studio wizardy.  But nope, you're just a cynical jerk, and they're just awesome.

Flying Lotus - Do The Astral Plane:  Of all the wheezy producers that I hate, I certainly hate Flying Lotus the least.  Boy has some skills on the bass.  And oh, nothing of his has made me smiles in years as much as this bouncey new single.  His production techniques were mostly taken from exagerated filter house in the first place, so it's about time we hear him knock back some straight beat goodness.

Guideo - Beautiful Complication
Guideo - Mad Sax:  Anidea is the name of the album, and hot sexy beats is the game afoot.  I listen to a LOT of electronic music, and mark my word, this album will put an ear-to-ear grin across your face.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  If you liked the latest offerings of Bonobo, Mount Kimbe and DZ, get this one ASAP.

Guy Klucevsek - The Gunks
Guy Klucevsek - Wave Hill:  I had a flash of insight, and suddenly realized I had never posted any Guy Klucevsek on this blog!  A tragedy!  Especially since his 1996 album "Stolen Memories" was heavily rotated in the car for most of last year.  Klucevsek is an accordian master, and fans of instrumental music and jazz should definitely develop a relationship with his body of work.

Hudson Mohawke - Fuse:  Is there wisdom in naming your band off a bad Bruce Willis flick that no one remembers?  Awww who cares, time for some more sexy beats.

Junip - Rope and Summit:  Junip is, quite obviously, a new outing from Jose Gonzalez.  The new EP isn't exactly earth-shatteringly new, but if you love the cycles of Gonzalez's guitar and hypnotic vocal cycles, you'll just be greatful for the extra dose.  Thank you sir, may I have one more?

Magneta Lane - September Came:  Just some pure pop goodness, from last year's album "Gambling With God".

Michael Santos - Alphaville
Michael Santos - Magenta Dayline:  2 tracks of spacey and crackling ambience from the new album Memory Maker.  For fans of Belong, Klimek, Mountains, and all of those usual suspects.

Mitten - Cavalcade:  I've posted 2 of their songs before, but damn they are addictive.  Like The XX instrumentation mixed with the best of Kim Gordon low-key singing.  Delicious.

Wye Oak - Emmylou:  From the new EP "My Neighbor / My Creator", the same release that gave us the fabulous I Hope You Die, this track is more straight forward rocking, but almost as entirely satisying.  The EP itself is really interesting, and you should check it out before they drop something even more fabulous.
