Koreless + Sorcerer + Jamie XX + Poolside
Posted by Jakub
“Start your engines and drive thru the 8 bit dirt in Excitebike” thats what the intro sounds like to me in this older single from Koreless and then the looped vocal comes in and adds that human connection and becomes a sugary fun track that bubbles and like a UK hip version of Pogo.
Sorcerer! who does your guitars? you?
I missed this Jamie Xx track, what an intro, who would have thought that we would listen to this much steel drums in 2008 and on from Ratatat, The Knife and now this.
Here’s the semi pop effort of getting slow disco in front of a larger audience, sadly I think it might be a tad bit too slow, also vox could sit a little better in the mix, I love Poolside, I only want to see them do well.

Weird thinking of these as “throwbacks”. They have tons of staying power though, still sound fresh today.

@THISISVICTORKIM the focus on the blog isn’t always new music, I always slip in old songs, there isn’t enough good music coming out that is fitting for the ISO50 players to post 4 songs every weekday that I like deeply

The Jamie XX song is a amazing, had it on repeat along side ‘Beat for’ for a while there last year.

Yeah that’s some catchy guitar work in ‘Memory Man’.

Jakub, new Heathered Pearls is always welcomed if you can’t find any other tunes.

I wonder if it’s called Memory Man because we’re hearing a bit of that pedal in said tone, for that matter. Loved that track- great calls as usual Jakub, thanks-
