Mushrooms Proj.+Om Unit+Wild Nothing+2:54
As I keep my eye on 2 screens, 1 being the UEFA Euro 2012 game and the other on scavenging soundcloud, I keep the soccer sounds off and let these cuts from to ride over and over. My roommate probably hates me being I like to listen to songs over and over that i’m going to post here.
This Mushrooms Project is close to Balearic perfection, almost a 12 minute piece of melting sky over your Blade Runner themed yacht party that only serves tall glasses of Arnold Palmers on a sweat soaked dancefloor thats been occupied to capacity for over 14 hrs now, daybreaks and you don’t even blink twice about the thought that you haven’t had an urge to rest your head.
Park your floating darkstar back onto the moon and connect with this crawling heavy hitter from Om Unit, a fusion of disco, techno and UK’s ever evolving beat scene, this cut just keeps going and fades off like an eclipse on the horizon.
A defining good song in this sea of indie rock that denies The Smiths as a big influence because its just not hip to name drop them anymore. I can’t ever hate Twee, it just has too much honest emotion in it, cuts deeper than any pop song ever could and makes any moment feel more important then it is 10 fold. On a side note, I love this song.
I don’t understand why this record is on Slumberland, it should put a flame under some asses of the whole girl vocal roster on there. These girls are good, I just hope they don’t go the whole NYLON meets Best Coast marketing route with a goth twist, that horse has been beaten, dragged, cut open, photographed and posted all over tumblr and retumbled more times than the word “like” is said at an employee meeting at Urban Outfitters.

Nice! Just went through the other stuff by mushrooms project — WOW love that energy they have in their productions. The OM unit track is dope too.

Holy crap, Galattica is sublime. It’s almost as out there as our very own Tycho. Also, Jakub, you get an internet for that second paragraph there – you’re either high or a genius or both and it’s great. 2:54 reminds me somewhat of SVIIB too – no bad thing.

Nice post. I’m really pulled to that Wild Nothing. I like the strings, soft and a little raw. It’s a nice balance. Just finished watching the Ireland – España game. Who are you supporting in the tournament?

@WILL i’m not high just loved that track, all of them are pretty visual
@KINDGEIST i’m all in with Poland but I don’t think they’ll make it, I do want to see Portugal’s all star roster go down in a fiery blaze

That last paragraph is the best paragraph I’ve read on this blog in a long time.

The first game for Poland was something else and I thought they might go on and beat Russia after Błaszczykowski equalized brilliantly. I believe They can pull off a win vs. Czech Republic. Cheers to you. And yes please to Portugal’s fall. I need my Oranje to wake up and play at least one game.
