No one wanted to leave when the lights came on. After a sucession of three word chants "One more song! Missed some guaco-loco by minutes Sorry for the late post but the bloggers not the blog are in recovery mode Dominos until 2am last night Anyways, on to bizness When the track highlighted below, starts, you are hit with a minimal beat. But before you know it, fuzzy guitars pop in and the beats drop to the background.
Vocals, viola, organs, more blips and beeps and Alexander Chen's smooth vocals all start piling up on each other in a good way make this an early standout track for the year. The group is just Chen in the studio with a larger touring band for live shows. MP3: Where It Ends. That's Right! We're back and fresher than ever at a great new location! It's got 2 Rooms, an Outdoor area, a Stage, plus tons of parking It reminds us of the vibe of the Club for all you old timers out there.

Hope to see you there! We've Got You Covered Indie Cross Breeding That would make for a pretty good 6 Degrees of Indie seperation game. They also make some pretty good music. The music involved from a lo-fi indie sound, slowly adding electronic elements and sometimes just going for straight dance music. He is actually making a name for himself because of his life performances. He also remixed a couple of tracks for Architecture in Helsinki.
HINT: If you dig around there enough, you might find some freebies! Guilt Free Downloading Ahead I just stumbled upon this. They have a ton of free MP3's to download. Most Album) tracks are fairly recent releases. Go pick up a few and get the beach play list ready for the holiday weekend. So check back,ya here? It Drives Me And the song just feels right. Stay with me, it's going some where For those of you that do not know the Shit Robot track, it is basically what the theme of Miami Vice would be if it was reincarnated today.
Even the synths evoke Jan Hammer's guitars from the original. Okay, you understand the music a bit, now imagine that you are cruising there is no better word for it over the first bridge. Star Island is on your right, on your left is the Port of Miami. Up ahead the new Miami skyline it is already in the top 20 worldwide in terms of height is rapidly approaching.
Further off, because Miami is so flat, the horizon seems to never end and we can enjoy a sunset at almost 8pm. The music and the scenery began to form a Pink Floyd-Wizard of Oz moment for me for the newer kids, it's like the Volkswagen commercial with the Stereolab song where everything from the windshield wipers to the clicking of the turn signals goes with the music. I always felt that not all songs are meant for the dance floor, headphones, home stereo, and house party Some songs are only suitable for one of those.
Some Leave You Behind - Boy In Static - Violet (CD only suitable for driving. The ones that make you forget that you live in a city with the worst road rage. The ones that make you want to take your car to the extreme. Or drive as slow as possible to see everything around you. Kraftwerk's Tour de France was practically orchestrated around bicycle race.
I never said you had to drive a car Listen to the breathing at the beginning of the song. For those that have cycled before you know that feeling. The song is a metronome for peddling.
These are some songs that drive me. What drives you? I already told you I liked disco. Oh and what did you guys think of the season finale of Lost?
I have my theories so do others. Blonde Redhead strays even further from their Sonic Youth beginnings with their newest album The follow up to Misery is a Butterfly was going to be difficult, everyone knew that.
The emotion that went into recording it would be too difficult to recreate. Perhaps Kazu Makino's wounds have healed a horrible horse riding accident that left Makino bed ridden, inspired much of Misery is a Butterfly because the songs in the new album are full of hope and discovery. They chose to go further into a blissful dream pop but with muscle. The beats and bass lines are still there. Here are two bonus tracks from the Japanese import.
Tracey Thorn is not Missing You may have thought Tracey Thorn had gone missing considering her last studio album was about two decades ago. Well there was that little stint as the vocal half of Everything But the Girl but who remembers that?
Everything But the Girl is a funny group. The first half of their career veered towards acoustic folk albums. They continued that sound in 's album Walking Wounded and their last album Tempermental. Well what does this have to do with Tracey? Well it seems the Ben's projects have influenced her latest Album) after all, the two are married. It is not a house album. But it is far from her acoustic sophisti-pop beginnings.
The following IS a house remix. Suitable for the upcoming Sunday afternoon BBQ's. Same Chemicals but Different Outcome I have always liked The Chemical Brothers. But after 's Push the ButtonI was skeptical. I understood what they wanted to do but they missed the mark. We Are the Night is working to change that. It seems to continue from where Come With Us left off instead.
Guests are abundant on the Brother's previous albums and We Are the Nights is no exception. However, it is the tracks that The Chemical Brothers are alone doing their own thing where the songs really take off. There are definite dance floor killers on the album and towards the end the more introspective tripped out space epics prevail think Beth Orton on Where Do I Begin from Dig Your Own Hole.
I Got That Feeling All Over Adult Swim released a new and free! That is what I first thought. And this is not your run of the mill, O. The Raveonettes!! Go run and get yourself a copy. They even include artwork for your iPod or whatever other MP3 player you nonconformists have.
Edit this The new album follows their sleeper album 'The Back Room' which took awhile to catch on here in the US, but I think eventually earned them some accolades and positive reviews despite contant comparisons to Interpol This success was probably mostly due to their constant touring and great live performances. I saw them perform Live here in Miami Studio A in and that was probably one of the best shows I have ever seen there.
Before their performance I liked the band but it wasn't until after that show that I became a real fan. You know studio records are great, but you get all the studio advantages. If you can perform the records out and sound just as good or better than the recordings, now that's hard to do. You don't see that too often anymore. Mostly live performances are let downs for me.
The Editors are the real deal though. They seem like they are reaching for something bigger the heart mostly with their epic music and you gotta love that voice. B ut that would be too easy, no? I have been sitting on this track for a couple of months now. I got it on the Music For Robots Volume 2 compilation highly recommended blog. Each time it comes up on my iTunes, I let it ride. It is a short sweet pop song that catches you from the opening kick drums through the soaring chorus and is over before you catch your breath.
You can download another great track of theirs Lost to the Lonesome on their MySpace page. I have no idea how many teenage bands London has but they seem to keep pumping them out. Bombay Bicycle Club is composed of three 17 year olds and a 16 year old and have only been together for about a year.
Their lyrics show their youth. On the song Sixteen they sing: You realize, you realize Add-2 "Tale of Two's City Vol. November 10, Sometimes I get behind and when that happens stuff like this gets lost.
I know he is from Chicago and that this is his second mixtape of the year hence the Vol. The first thing immediately apparent is that the kid can flow like few others. Riding beats much like fellow Chicago emcee Lupe Fiasco, Add-2 demonstrates multiple styles and speeds with smooth breath control and crystal pronunciation.
Done in a playful manner, this is a good demonstration of what 2 is about - real life issues that we all can relate to. He speaks to the frustration of addiction and the issues surrounding color in our society always in a down to earth tone that conveys consideration for both sides of the topic, pushing the provocation of thought over a certain line of thinking. While he is busy breaking it down for us, he was blessed with a number of crisp beats from an assortment of, mostly unknown, beatmakers.
He handles his own, but I think he should have left it alone. Add-2 Downloads Mixtape Mondays Rap. Post a Comment. While most of his free projects from the past were DJ free, teaming up with a name like Don Cannon will help increase his presence and those beats are never bad. Luckily Cannon was talked to, or maybe he had the presence of mind to not fuck up a good thing, and he lays back on the Smokee Robinson tape.
Very little in the way of rewinds which isn't the case for the first track, making one wear…. Read more. July 10, Half way through I'm another year older.
