MP3 blog 2013/12/3

blog 2013/12/03 - the end is NIGH

The end is upon us.  The time ticks down.  This will be the last normal MP3 blog post of the year.
Next week will be my favourite albums of 2013.
The week after?   The annual holiday post.
And then we are on vacation until January.

45 blog posts.
850 mp3s.
Hope you've enjoyed this year, it's been crazy:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20131203.zip

Angel Haze - Same Love:  Oh thank god Angel Haze got in and did this.  Fuck yes.

Blind Pilot - 3 Rounds and a Sound (iTunes session):  Wooden stool core.

Crookers & Digi - Stiaah!:  BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

Flint - Mouser:  I don't post a lot of harder stuff, but my god this track from Brof Ken Piano is fabulous.  To take it back some decades, it has a Jesus Lizard intensity with a Mike Patton goofiness.

Gentlemen Hall - Sail Into The Sun (RAC Mix):  RAC is back and keeps the dance groove going on and on and on.

J-Live - Set It Straight (Sammy Senior Remix):  Getting on an epic chill tip here.

Jacksons 5 - ABC (Minimatic's Under The Volcano Mix):  Oh yes, Jacksons need to chill the heck out and the go for the sun.

Majical Cloudz - Impersonator
Majical Cloudz - Turns Turns Turns:  Impersonator feels like a Scott Walker album done as straight-forward cabaret pop.  It has unfolding depths that reward multiple listens.

Maxo Kream - Lewinsky:  Dark ish from Quicc Strikes.

Mice Parade - This River Has A Tide:  I love vocal pairs with such a strong difference in their ranges like this.  A bit like Dirty Projectors lite, but oh so good still.  From Candela.

Nickel -  ZYGZM (Jean Nippon Remix):  Gotta get back on that deep tech tip.

Rihanna - Russian Roulette (Blackbird Blackbird Refix):  Taking all the princesses and lining up the morphine.

Scrns - Ttyn:  School Of Seven Bells is attacking you with their cell phones.

Sky Ferreira - I Blame Myself:  #hnnng pop perfection from Night Time, My Time

Sleigh Bells - Demons (Diplo Remix):  I guess the holiday music is starting early this year?

The Bixby Knolls - Runnin And Runnin:  Let's get drunk and dance to this in a bar and go in circles circles cvicles crickets

The Pink Noise - Bad Trip:  Nonewwave all over this Greedy Heart.

Typhoon - Rules of the Game:  He's going to just wrench it right out of you, Temple Of Doom Style.

Yell for Help - Love Will Keep Us Together:  In case you needed another dose of the Sleigh Bells sound!
