Thinking back about what was probably the biggest turning point for me musicially was hearing and seeing Beck in his New Pollution video. I remember the first time i watched it all the way thru, i loved the way he dressed and how he performed the song in the video and then the video started going all over the place and i thought it was genius, every second of it from the Gainsbourg references to the all out odd moments where that wrestler is drinking milk. Well now he is still all over the place but it all still sounds like Beck. This new track off his latest LP has really grabbed me, its not as imaginative as New Pollution but that’s fine, it holds its own.
If you ever wanted to hear Moroder just do something like Spinal Tap’s Space Jazz Odyssey but way way better the new Lindstrøm LP which is only 3 songs but all 3 are over 10 mins does a perfect job. Lovely melodies but some i think i remember from other songs like this one sounds like a track from the movie Blood Sport which isn’t a bad thing trust me that soundtrack is pretty solid.
One person that’s on fire right now is DJ Koze, some of the best tracks coming out are from him, he does nice poppy late night remix for Matias Aguayo.
This last song i posted because i don’t have the original on this computer but i thought you might enjoy this remix of it. Part of me just wants to wait and get Kate Bush’s original up but the Chromatic’s kept it about the original and not about them which i liked.
