Alexander - A Million Years: I'm oh so heartened toknow that Paul Simon is back in style!
Cobra & Vulture - Station Agent of Change: From the new record Seer, it's like an idie-rocker version of Charming Hostess', which is ALL FINE BY ME.
Fantastic Mr. Fox - Fool Me
Fantastic Mr. Fox - Over: I just heard the Evelyn EP and am oh so blown away by it. A few sounds borrowed from the long-gone heyday of IDM moulded in to fabulous contemporary bass compositions. Highly recommended.
Gold Panda - An Iceberg Hurled Northward Through Clouds: I find a lot of GP stuff a tad cluttered, which is probably why I dig the simple plodding going on here so much, all wrapped up in their signature production.
James Blake - At Birth: Blake has kind of had a precipitous stumble from the scary hype-fueled peaks, but at least track really shines from Love What Happened Here.
Little Roy - Lithium (Nirvana cover): Yes, I'm still a bit stunned by this as well.
Machinedrum - U Don't Survive: Another little boom-bip-skronk from the new LP Room(S).
Marissa Nadler - In Your Lair, Bear: stunning and arcane folk from the self-titled 2011 album.
Mugison - To The Bone: Smooth barroom blues-rock from their 2007 selftitled album.
Oliver Tank - Last Night I Heard Everything in Slow Motion: And people said autotune couldn't be beautiful!
Optimus Gryme - Mezzanine: From the album Eclipse, I love dubstep basslines that are tradtional to the techstep routes. Slam those snares!
The Rapture - It Takes Time To Be A Man: With an intro that is sure to be sampled and looped for a hiphop instrumental by this time next year, I'm kind of taken aback that I really enjoy this track from In The Grace Of Your Love.
Thyladomid & Adriatique - Deep In The Three: DEEP HOUSE AROUND FEIST SONGS IS A GOOD IDEA.
Two Door Cinema Club & Wiz Khalifa - What You Want When I'm Gone (The Two Friends Mashup): These two go together like peanutbutter and chocolate. That is, with a high-powered machine that squirts delicious every-which-way.
Yamantaka // Sonic Titan - Queens (Remix): Wish I knew who did this drugged out mix, but it was just sent to me with this title. Ahhh well. YT//ST are one of the hottest things in Canada right now, and that says a lot when you consider all the gems we produce for you. Hot hot hot hot shit right here. So good.
