Benoit & Sergio make some of my favorite singles to play out, they have a special way of going about a build to a song, its not smoke and mirrors, its not a formula, it just feels less fabricated and more necessary than most dance song builds, the whole song is a groove, no gimmicks.
Prefuse 73 and Teebs team up as Sons of the Morning, sounds very much like early Prefuse, thank god!
The sex appeal / heartbreak is harder to grasp more than ever for any Cold Wave musician in the US and it has almost become too available so its even more difficult for a new act like Dream Affair to get the recognition they deserve. An amazing effort though, I hope to see them live and feel the authenticity because thats the best way to survive in this genre.
Memory Tapes could have made 3 songs from this 8+ minute jam, just the keys in the intro could be a AM Gold classic then there’s a mellowed Weird Tapes sounding portion that flutters around in and out. Then some sort of Dan Deacon epic mountain climbing guitar attack making this song just the most dynamic thing i’ve heard in years but I don’t know if it translate as the best decision making.

Luise – Hi Megan,Your new website is betafiuul. I haven’t had time to read everything, but pics are betafiuul. I tried to subscribe, but unfortunately I don’t understand what I need to do. No matter I shall look at it from time to time. Who set up the website? What a nice job. I loved the pic with the squirrel. When I was in Pinos Altos, I tried to get a pic with the squirrel going for bird seed too, but by the time I got the camera ready he sped off. Maybe yoursquirrel is tamer.Love you.Gram
