MP3 blog 2011/10/13

blog 2011/10/13 - off to Vermont tomorrow hurray!!

A double-update week!   Please excuse me but there was just a backlog of awesome to get to.

AFX - Quex-RD
Autechre - Skin Up You're Already Dead:  Who would expect a split EP between these 2 appearning in 2011?  And it being AWESOME?   Fabulous.

Austra - Lose It (Young Galaxy Remix):  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I really think Young Galaxy should have got the Polaris shortlist over Austra.  Blah.  Anyways, kiss kiss and makeup, because you sound oh so beautiful together.

Brown Shoe - Late Nights:  From The Gift Horse, just let it build and get all good and epicy at the end.

Chromeo - When The Night Falls (Hercules And Love Affair Remix):  Hercules & Love Affair have had some misses, but they have some top-notch production funk going on here, and I'm not even a Chromeo fan.

Cults & Superhuman Happiness - Um Canto de Afoxé para o Bloco d'Ilê:  Cute little collab from Red Hot + Rio 2.  Totally infectious.  You just try and frown, Mr. Grumpsalot.

Drop Life - Moon Shine:  Beatsmiths are a dime-a-dozen in this laptop studio word, but I keep digging for the gems like this track.

Girls - Vomit:  New Girls!  I wasn't a huge fan of the earlier stuff, but it seems like someone had a dark year.  Like more morose Dinosaur Jr.

Kathryn Calder - Who Are You:  More fantastic pop, from the new album Bright And Vivid.

Magic Arm - Outdoor Games:  Sweet and lulling pop, from 2009's Make Lists Do Something.

Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire - Huzzah! (Remix FT Despot, Das Racist, Danny Brown & El-P):  Oh this is just so goofy.  Hilarious and perfect.

Ohbijou - Anser
Ohbijou - Sligo:  New album Metal Meets is out now and it's as sweet and beautiful as you expected.  Recommended!

RxRy - Aertigo Lapsees:  Off the Aertgo Lapsees single that apparently came out last year, but I just snagged it now.  RxRy is an electronic music producer in fine form.  Serve with the AFX/Autechre singles above....

St. Vincent - Surgeon:  I'm the first to admit I haven't loved anything she's done quite as much as her brilliant debut album, but I'm enjoying this new single from Strange Mercy, out now.

Star Slinger - Dutchie Courage:  And we close off with a sunshine bouncey bit of awesomeness, doing a fairly straight-ahead all-guns-bounce flip of the classic samples.
