I’m almost certain that everything Bradford Cox from Deerhunter does turns to gold, the guy is so kind and unreal, even on Vox Celeste 5 which sounds like such a simple song laid out but his tweaks and additions are what set him apart from the rest of the pack of rock bands out there.
I’m sure many of you remember a label called Eastern Developments, it was run by Prefuse 73 and they put out a lot of talent like Eliot Lipp, Daedelus, etc. back in 2003 and 2004. One album that I still listen to today is Instrmntl by Dabrye, the song “Won” is my go to, that clap with that low muted synth bass always gets my head nodding.
I ran into David Byrne this weekend at Warp’s 20 year anniversary during the Battles show, he might be the best dancer in New York no joke. I pretty much stood there for about 10 minutes until my friend Danny was like “just standing next to David Byrne, no big deal.” Man! you really got to hand it to him he’s a musical genius, all that I spit out to him was “The Catherine Wheel soundtrack might be the best musical piece of work ever made, will you take a picture with me?”
I’m always on the hunt for new or old Dubstep, when I first heard Skream I wasn’t a fan but I must of heard the wrong songs because he’s throwing down some of the best elements I love in dubstep on Rutten, i’m even down with that flute right now.

That skream track is sweet, i find a lot of his stuff to be very hit or miss. He makes some of the best dubstep but a lot of his music dose not appeal to me at all. I saw him play with benga on suday at the electric picnic festival but it was very disappointing because their subwoofer was not working so there was no bass. I did see four tet play two amazing sets the day before so it kind of made up for it!

Deerhunter will be playing at EMPAC, on RPI’s campus, where I am an architecture student, in Troy, NY this Friday. A friend of mine just told me. they will be opening for the Boredoms. And for five bucks, very much worth making it out!
