Simian Mobile Disco - Temporary Pleasure

SMD new records is 18 months in the making a coming out soon. There is enough guest on this album to be a hip-hop record. I'm ok with that, as long as it's better than the N.a.s.a. record. 

The album is due out Aug. 3rd..

I saw this guys in Austin, TX for last Sxsw. They put on a great all analog set. They played after Yeasayer, who I was not into. Surprisingly enough though, the singer or Yeasayer is a guest vocalist on the record. 

This is sounding more tech-house than the last. As long as they stay away from that Ed Banger shit, I'll be cool with it.

Disco Tuesday

Jesus fucking Christ, if it keeps raining I'm going to blow my brains out. I can't do anything outside when it's raining.

 Today I woke up in a disco mood so here are a few classics that you should know.

Barry Bernard May 8th 1984-May 24th 2009

Goodbye today to a good friend. I don't want to say this but I mean it, I hope you're in a better place. Here's a song that maybe sounds how I feel.

Animal Collective - Summertime Clothes

I remember reading a while back that A.C. wouldn't be releasing any singles from Merriweather. Now, all of a sudden I'm hearing about their new single. They've picked some awesome people to remix their music too. The last single off Strawberry Jam, had a really good remix by Pantha Du Prince, along with a Black Dice remix (who I love), but Black Dices remix was ehh. Anyway, the first Mp3 posted for Summertime is a great remix by Dam-Funk. I never really liked the actually song, but Dam Funk gave the song texture and mood I get more into. The song now has a never 70's feel. When the chorus comes in with that killer keyboard melody on top of the vocals, that's the great moment of the song. Enjoy. 

I've been waiting to write about this album. I'm sure 
you've already heard, but the new Wilco is streaming for 
free on their website. The album is called Wilco
(the Album), which I think is pretty funny. I like to know
Wilco has a since of humor. You know the have a since
of humor when the first song on the record is called 
Wilco. Wilco has gone further into the classic rock world
on this record than ever before. Their are a few songs 
that have that intense, noisy, abrasive Wilco that I like.
The song Bull Black Nova that could be a Jim 
O'Rourke on guitar induced noise jam. It is a stand out 
track right away. All the other tracks are so happy and
welcoming. The funniest part is, that after the most 
intense song the most accessible track off the record, 
You and I. It's a nice song, but I feel like it's a high 
school love ballad. Listen.

Dear God

Today, my moods were all over the place. So these post are going to be kind of funny. 
One of these records that I'll be talking about is already out, the other 2 will be out in June sometime. 

First thing's first, the new Sonic Youth album, Eternal. Their fucking 16th record. I saw on one s website (that I don't want to mention), that the record would be out soon, next thing I did was find it. I liked Rather Ripped ok, but I thought Sonic Nurse was THE SHiiiiiiiiiiiT. This record is a lot more noisy than Rather Ripped, which seemed more like a pop rock record. Eternal has balls. This is also going to be Sonic Youths Matador Records debut. The band is still playing with Pavement's Mark Ibod on bass. I think they covered their whole career on this record. With every play, I love it more. Here are some tracks...

The next post is a favorite of mine, Mos Def whose new
record is sounding very promising. Sounds like he's 
been listening to some different types of music and 
is turning his direction around a little. The sample in this
song is killer. I can't wait to hear the whole record. The
photo up top is also Mos Def's album cover.

Last but not least is the new record by Martyn entitled 
Great Lengths. Upon first listen I was blown away. 
3-3-3-3-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4.This record is BASS
HEAVY. This record goes from Dubstep to Techno and then
to UK Garage. This kind of shit never comes to
Gainesville. I guess I'll just to wait until the next time
Sister Hazel plays to get my live music fix.

It Never Stops

Rain, rain go away. It's Friday and it's still raining. Son of a bitch. At least I have some new music to keep me through the work day into a sleepy, noise pop day dream, way the fuck away from this rainy shit hole. 

The new Deerhunter EP Rainwater Cassette Exchange, is focusing more on the concrete opposed to the abstract, noise, dream pop they were doing last record. All the ambient sound interludes are missing here, and the format is straight forward pop rock songs. I'm not sure if I like this approach yet, but the songs are still solid. Every since I read an interview with Deerhunter about the band breaking up, I hear their music differently, but somehow the Liars convinced them to stay together. I hear it and see it now like Bradford Cox is leading the show and the other guys are just the backdrop. It even felt like that live. Hopefully they write some more music before it's all said and done. 

Here's a song from Bradford Cox's solo project.

Atlas Sound - My Car

And yet another side project of Deerhunter, 
from the guitar player Lockett Pundt.

Lotus Plaza - Red Oak Way

And here's a little treat to keep you laughing 
before you go out tonight. I saw this guy do 
stand up in New York and he killed it. 
Here he's doing a bit he made for a movie 
called Funny People.

This is what I'll be wanting to hear this weekend, 
Buraka Som Sistema. This is a electronic group
from Portugal that is single handedly
starting the progressive movement of Kuduro music. 
The album's great too, it's called Black Diamond.

Humidity 83%

Today feels like a fart outside. But at least the Tyra Banks show is still on air. 

One of the newest artist on Stones Throw is Mayer Hawthorne and the Country. Imagine Smokey Robinson, produced by J Dilla, from a guy who grew up outside Detroit, but now leaves in L.A. It has soul. It's not this white boy soul that a lot of groups are doing. I wasn't to into the new Jamie Lidell album (more white boy soul). It lost a lot of soul and experimentation the last record had. Either way, the new Mayer Hawthorne single is coming out soon. Here's both songs off the new single. 

If you like that shit fool!

Here's a song of Jamie Lidell's last record...

Whenever school starts back up, I find myself listening to a lot more electronic music. I find it easier to study to really laid back groups or artist that are mostly instrumental, to help me read to. Today it was mostly the new Field record, which if you haven't heard yet, get the fuck on it, and Ben Klock's newest record, One. Minimal is key.

Ben Klock- Goldrush

Yesterday and Today, the new record by the Field, is heavily sample based and flows incredibly seamlessly. Axel Willner (aka the Field) seems like he could keep this formula up forever, and never be behind in the times.  Also, the new record has more live drums than the last record, featuring drums by John Stainer of Battles. Krautrock, Shoegaze, Post Rock, Minimal and Tech House are all sounds to expect on this record. This record also is going to be toured with a live backing band, along with the Juan MacLean, who will also have a live band. The Field is actually playing Miami soon, but fucking school is keeping me in this town. Yesterday and Today is actually why I started this blog. (Listen to both songs with headphones if you want maximum sound quality, unless you have a really good sound system. If you listen to this through your laptop speakers, you're going to hate this.)

The Field- The More That I Do

Since this is my first blog, I'll give one promise. I won't stick to just one genre of music. It looks that way right now, but that's just the kind of day it's been. It's been raining for the past 4 days here and I had to study all day. 

The Beatles -Rain 

That's todays video bonus. The song with the first backwards guitar riff...EVER!
