MP3 blog 2010/10/12

blog 2010/10/12 - Once more before the long weekend!

You know what?  Fuck it.  I'm just going to leave the title as-is.
I was going to try and get this out before the long weekend, but you know what happened?  THE LONG WEEKEND.
And it was incredible.
And things are incredible all around, and hopefully the incredibleness of your life allowed you to carry forward with the energy and genius of last week, all the way in to this week, because this is the week you are getting this update that you were supposed to get last week.
Or so it goes.

Blue Sky Black Death - Threats:  This comes from last year's The Indie Rock Essentials, and yeah, while not totally essential, there are some good downtempo bangers on there, if that makes sense.  I love the chopped gospel vox going on here.

Curren$y - Audio Dope II:  Pilot Talk is the new album, and shit if you are all smoked-out on a couch playing video games, this might be the perfect album for you.  I love this track, and love the totally chilled out steel drum action.  But the whole album is just TOO DAMN SLACKER FOR ME.

Danny Byrd - Sweet Harmony ft Liquid (Jungle Mix):  I've been in love with Danny Byrd for years, and this is another example of why.  All of my favourite classic sounds mix perfectly with the new school production aesthetics.
Total 93 rave piano.  Let's go!

Dom Mino' - Crochet
Dom Mino' - Jacopo:  I just recently got a listen to this album, "Time Lapse", from 2008.  While as a whole it didn't jive, there were a number of stellar tracks that really had that incredible classic IDM sound that I love oh so much.  Fabulous crunchy beats like clockwork.

Emika - Double Edge (Pinch Remix):  Slow slinky creeper beats!   Pinch beautiful works the boards on this one so it pulses and breathes in all the right ways.

Kathryn Calder - Slip Away:  From the new LP "Are You My Mother?", you are almost caught off-guard by the big splash of radio pop in the middle.  I thought it'd stay subtle and folky and whispery the whole way through, but still it's perfectly plotted pop.

Mastiksoul - Que Pasa ft Dakaneh:  Mastiksoul always delivers the goods and here we have some EXCELLENT straight-up house pounding.  There has been such an annoying trend of people putting horns in to their floor-filler tracks and just fucking it up, but we can of course rely on Mastiksoul to school the masses on how to do it proper.

Mowgli & Tara Mcdonald - Can't Stop Singing:  Jazz hands, everyone!  Get yer jazz hounds out for this garagey swinger!

Sea Oleena - Island Cottage
Sea Oleena - Swimming Story:  These are from the new self titled LP.  Folk pop for the 21st century!  Cheerful, hypnotic and just lovely.

The Acorn - Kindling To Cremation (Megafaun Remix):  The Acorn get an unlikely remix album out!  Make The Least of the Day has their tracks flipped and screwed, and I really love this ghostly chanting version here.
The remix album can be purchased directly from Paper Bag Records online, and apparently a version is coming down the pipes with the LP + Remix album together.

The Black Keys - Everlasting Light
The Black Keys - I'm Not the One
The Black Keys - Ten Cent Pistol:  The new album Brothers is slickly produced fuzzed out blues rock.  I didn't think I'd love it at first, but it's really grown on me.  It's totally just straight-forward blues grooves.  Definitely give it a good chance.

Themselves - ANTarctica
Themselves - BackIIburn (Themselves Remix):  Themselves have a bad track record with remix albums.  Their last one was a bit of a mess, and the new one, Crownsdown & Company, isn't very redemptive.  But there is an original track on it, and a handful of the remixes really work.
