Midlake: Loving this video and single, I hope this band keeps it together somehow, would be a shame if they quit.
Blonde Redhead: Some serious music as the first single from the new Blonde Redhead. The treatment though touches on Monty Python’s Holy Grail, just sayin’/
Washed Out: I grabbed this from his Instagram, seems to be a few new songs?
Nils Frahm: I know i’m addicted, for those that missed the premiere of this video, I thought i’d post it for you.
I knew right away that i’ve fallen in love with an album when I can’t even get past the first 2 songs because i’ve put them on repeat. Go deep with this one, its a very rewarding listen.

Real Lies have grabbed the essence of what I adore about music from England and how do revival of a retro sound.
1:24 and on, I can’t get enough of that wild girl voice. Trust is back and I couldn’t be happier.’Joyland’ will be released by Arts & Crafts on March 4, 2014.
What amazing vibes from the new Tomas Barfod / Nina K. single. Its like a less flashy Little Dragon with pop touch that doesn’t force anything. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
White Rainbow throws out a release here and there on his bandcamp, he’s been veering away from hypnotic which i’m curious to hear the rest of this record will sound like, either way i’m always a fan.
Using only MS Paint, Turkish artist Koray Kantarcioglu creates hyper-detailed bitmap landscapes.
If you are in the Chicago area, make sure to stop by the Schneider Gallery for blog favorite Reuben Wu’s latest exhibition titled Distant Suns. Opening reception night is this Friday, January 10th, and will run through March 1st 2014, alongside Lynn Saville.
Some words from the gallery on Reuben’s work:
Somewhere between 1970s concept album art, expeditionary imagery, and Surrealist painting is where Reuben Wu’s photographs steadfastly sit. His are pictures made in the real world, however, through collapsing time and merging processes, the real is transformed into the surreal, evoking a response simultaneously familiar and foreign. The photographs amplify the strangeness of place and speak to Wu’s individual experience within it.

We’ll never stop posting new Lone, its always an inviting listen, you may recognize it from a Rustie mix from 2012.
Titled “Homage (Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.)” this single from Lamin Fofana had me in a trance this morning.
Terekke is true to the deep end of techno/house, he has a few 12″ out, hoping 2014 will be his breakout year.
I’ve been on a Nils Frahm kick over break, just pressing play and letting his whole LP after LP play through, really rewarding listening sessions.
The 1970′s and 80′s were an exciting time for F1, largely because constructors had less of a grasp on aerodynamic behaviour. As consequence, there were some fairly unique and extreme design discrepencies between competitors during that period, Brabham being one team who’s radical attempts may have achieved mixed results, but they always certainly looked fast. They were collectively memorable due to their distinctive liveries, my preference leaning towards the Alfa/Parmalat era.
I’ve been addicted to 1 mix this year and its been this on repeat. I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED it for tomorrow morning or just preparing for tonights countdown. Happy New Year ISO50 readers!
