blog 2012/06/20 - boombiddybapbap

Cataldo - Don't Lose That Feeling:  Sometimes when the night is still and then a slight breeze emerges from the window, I can still hear John Denver's echoes coming down through the stars.  And it sounds like John K. Sampson.

Charli XCX - I'll Never Know:  The marimba beat reminds me of the best Architecture In Helsinki, and the pop vocals are up there with the best of the year.  So good.

Cultfever - Collector:  Ever since Fiery Furnaces were never able to come close to the zenith of their debut, there has been a Blueberry Boat-shaped hole in my heart, and this song does well to pay tribute to it.

Diplo - Express Yourself ft Nicky B:  We have 2 NICKY B tracks up for you this week, so best you all pay attention and dig this shit.   Hot hot hot flavour from New Orleans that is giving Freedia a run for her money.  Once again Diplo is so far ahead of the curve that you can't even see his taillights.

Ducky - Overdose:  Oh god, that chorus loop just has me all swooney!  *melt*

Edda Magnason - Jona (Vidderna Remix):  Reminiscient of the most poppy Knife tracks, like Marble House.

Jason Burns - Back To You:  And sometimes you jus want some chill bass loops.

Kanye West - Mercy ft Pusha T, Big Sean & 2 Chainz:  OK it's a big pile of douche-bags, but dayyam that beat is hot.

Kitty Pryde - Okay Cupid:  Kitty Pryde is a fanfiction where Ke$ha and Rebecca Black impregnant Lil B and out pops this little monster that listens to wheezing Clams Casino beats.

Kool A.D. - La Piñata:  Yes, the Mr. Rogers pretty much guarantees inclusion.

Milo Greene - 1957:  Some nice little barrom folk dancin'.

Nicky Da B - Hot Potato Style:  THIS IS HOW WE DROP IT HOT POTATO STYLE.  Oh and you best check the music video.

Nighttime Concert - Firefly Jar:  Nothing so appropriate to sandwich Nicky Da B with then some low-key folk!  From 2009's Letters from Labour Street.

Patrick Watson - Lighthouse:  I haven't heard the new full length Adventures In Your Own Backyard yet, but I'm liking the slow simmer on this one.  Just wait until the horns hit you at the 3 minute mark.

Perfume Genius - Dark Parts:  While being rather morose and sullen, the new album Put Your Back N 2 It is totally hypnotic and enthralling.  Beyond the clever title is emotive and concise songwriting that has been banging around in my head for days after hearing it.  I'm going to let it simmer-down a bit more, but this one has me excited.

Royal Headache - Never Again
Royal Headache - Pity
Royal Headache - Wilson Street:  The self-titled Royal Headache album has production qualities that I consider deceptively garage.  It SOUNDS garage, but you can tell there is dynamite precision going on here.  Short, sweet, and a bundle of rock and roll fun.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Wil Bolton - Passing:  The creaks and field recordings go so well with a pulsing synth organ.  From the new album Under A Name That Hides Her.
