MP3 blog 2010/11/24

blog 2010/11/24 - My office cubicle needs far more pillows.

Beats party today!  Heavy on the beats...

Balam Acab - Big Boy
Balam Acab - See Birds (moon):  2 highlights from the awesome "See Birds" EP, downpitched downtempo downer music that is really actually very lovely.

Baths - Aminals
Baths - Maximalist
Baths - Rain Smell:  I'm loving "Cerulean".  It mixes in flavours you might associate with Passion Pit, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, and even some Morr Music fare.  Highly recommended for anyone who ever thought Mount Kimbe should make love songs.

Daft Punk - Derezzed (Tron Legacy OST)
Daft Punk - The Crash (Tron Legacy OST):  So much hype surrounding the new Tron movie, but the most exciting and insta-fawning aspect was signing Daft Punk to do the soundtrack!  And yes, here are some fabulous reasons as to why that was an awesome idea.

El May - Don't You:  From last year's self-titled album, super catchy folk pop.

Eluvium - The Motion Makes Me Last (Four Tet Remix):  Eluvium has been constantly surprising and delighting over the past few years, and joy of joy the new Leaves Eclipse The Light EP gets Four Tet on board.  OK, Four Tet in some ways has been phoning in the remixes, but it's more about the source material here.  You can't go wrong, and Four Tet does right and flips it in to a deep and beautiful ecstatic ride, never going off the rails.

Flevans - Mad Perks:  2009's 27 Devils LP had a few hot tracks on it, but this one is the sure fire boom bap standout for me.  For fans of Jon Kennedy and RJD2 for sure.

New Boyz ft Tyga - Cricketz:  Banger hiphop is a guilty pleasure, and oh I do love the cricket solos.

Sub Swara ft Stuart Bogie & Eric Biondo - Bird of Paradise:  Sub Swara always seems to impress, but here he comes with the innovation stick and does what I've always wanted, fuse the soulful jazzy with the dubstep bass in a way that isn't just isolating, but downright funky.  Taken from the new LP Triggers.

The Wedding Band - Susie:  From the new release "The First Dance EP", this song is SO traditional "piano bar" that I almost skipped right over it.  But it's a slow brooding folk ballad of love and loss and really rather stunning.   This makes me want to go out to a bar and drink and cry in to my drink and be all awkward.

White Ring - Suffocation (Los Campesinos! Remix):  A pleasant find on the Suffocation EP!  I hadn't heard any Los Campesinos! remixes before, and here they come to save the day, pulling this pop song that was drowning in it's own distortion, and bringing it in to perfect equilibrium.

Yoshihiro Hanno - Re-Platform (Aoki Takamasa Remix):  From the new Fractalized LP, this rework synthesizes some of my favourite things of a textural ambient orchestration:  The sparse piano, the low hums, the haunting horns, the creeping cello...  ahhh bliss.
