MP3 blog 2012/07/01

blog 2012/06/20 - rumpalumpa

Have you noticed a lack of updates around here?
SO HEY YEAH WE WENT AND HAD A BABY.
She'll be a week old tonight just after midnight!

So here I sit with a sleeping baby in my lap preparing this blog with one free hand.
During nap periods I also have been prepping some old vinyl I digitized way-back-when, and if you following djcpi.blogspot.com you will see those get posted up there over the next few weeks.
But onwards to the music!

Oh and this edition is dedicated to Andrew B, who sent me a fantastic book on Chinese artist Ding Yi.   Woot!



Beastie Boys - Shake Your Rump (DJ Illo Remix):  Ottawa playboy Illo pays last respects to MCA by reposting his killer remix.

Cristian Dinamarca - Find Your Love:  Love the chillbass with the banging hits!

Damien Jurado - Maraqopa:  Soft perfect folk from the new album Maraqopa.

Dream Continuum - Set It:  Holy hell, it's another footwerk track I can get down with!  Yet another framework to flip all classic samples on to.

Julio Bashmore - Battle For Middle You:  Deep house with the pitched down vocals that has been making chillwave all squirmy?  Oh yes.

K. Leimer - Nine Approximations 9:  Soothing ambience from the 2007 album Lesser Epitomes.

Perfume Genius - No Tear:  Another fabulous song from the highly recommended new album Put Your Back N 2 It.

Postiljonen - Rivers:  Sometimes melancholy is so rich it brings me to ecstatic smiles.  Someone needs to make a movie just to have this as the climactic soundtrack.

Samuel Lockridge - Hangman
Samuel Lockridge - Heart of Silk
Samuel Lockridge - When I Rise:  OK so I wasn't totally in to the new album When I Rise as I hoped I would be.  I admit it.  It reminded me of Damien Rice doing traditional Americana folk.  But there are some great tracks on here.  OK ad mit it, does Hangman sound like Leonard Cohen's Suzanne????  Yes totally.   And I definitely had to tack on the choral reprise of "When I Rise" here...

Silkken Laumann - House Of Common Problems:  THIS SONG IS AMAZING.  The backing music isn't going to blow you away with its earnestness, but on top of it all we have Ottawa powerhouse Rolf Klausner and his genius lyrical stylings.  You might remember him from the band The Acorn, another band whose propensity for panty-wetting poetry rivals only Leonard Cohen.  Klausner will be this generations true Canadian Classic.   Also, check the video for this song featuring some of my favourite spots in the city!

St. Lucia - We Got It Wrong (Xaphoon Jones Remix):  Big room ecstatic pop dancing!

Sylvain Chauveau & Ensemble Nocturne - Enjoy The Silence (Depeche Mode cover):  I found Sylvain Chauveau through his more contemporary and avant vocal recordings, but oh I had to go and include this great cover from his album of Depeche Mode reworks.

Symphony of Science - Ode to the Brain
Symphony of Science - We Are Star Dust:  Thanks to Duncan A for messaging me a reminder about this album!  If you're like me and have total crushes on Neil Degrasse Tyson, Carl Sagan (RIP), and Sir David Attenborough, then this album is for you.   It doesn't work in the perfect way a song is supposed to work, but works as an amazing to review how brilliant and wonderul our world is, and how science lets us learn more about it.  Dear America, if you all think dinosaurs walked with humans and scientific scepticism is some great evil, ya'll are fucked.

The Decemberists - June Hymn (live)
The Decemberists - The Infanta (live):  A live album is a great way to kill time between real releases!  This one, We All Raise Our Voices to the Air (Live Songs 04.11-08.11), is pretty much for Decemberists converts only, but for those of us that can raise our hands to that will definitely love it.

Theophilus London - Big Spender ft A$AP Rocky:  CLOSE IT OUT WITH A DOUCHEBAG BANGER!
