Lone – Ecstasy & Friends

Lone - Ecstasy & Friends
One label that did it perfect this year was Werkdiscs, just solid A+R with a vision and exposed new sounds to the whole industry by unveiling high caliber talent like Lukid, Actress, and their new addition Lone. It really made a hobbyist/music lover like myself get excited about the hunt of music again. What Actress brought to the table this year was eye opening and Lukid’s twist on Dub gave me another record that I could put on and not worry about skipping around.

Lone’s new LP has the charm and playful nostalgia feel like his last LP Lemurian but hits a bit harder on the kicks and just comes off brighter like the sun beams glaring off snow. If you’re a Tycho, Boards of Canada, Flying Lotus, Christ., Washed Out, Neon Indian, etc. fan there is something in this album for you.

On a side note: I kind of want to rock doubles of Karen Loves Kate, just a second there I had this player and itunes playing the song at the same time and it just sounded soo warm and thick, pure goodness.

Lone – Karen Loves Kate

Lone – Go Greenhills Racer

Alpha+AuRevoirSimone+Drums+ToroYMoi

Alpha - Come From Heaven
I always loved the feeling certain lounge songs made me feel, its funny how it always made me think of vintage furniture that I wanted to own or made me daydream about specific Verner Panton and Eero Saarinen interior architecture, its so 2002.

Neon Indian I love your music man but that name is just too hipster for me, its like adding an expiration date to the project, so nice to hear Au Revoir Simone vocals anytime I can, really nice track.

I saw The Drums for the 5th time in like 2 months last night, again one of my favorite live performing bands around right now. If you live in the UK, check for live dates, pure pop fun and probably the best and most entertaining tambourine player of all time.

How can you turn down more Washed Out? its like lo-fi AM Gold with an updated modern indie touch. I like what Toro Y Moi did in this remix by keeping the feel of the song within that family of musicians sound.

Alpha – My Things

Au Revoir Simone – Another Likely Story (Neon Indian Remix)

The Drums – I Felt Stupid

Washed Out – Feel It All Around (Toro Y Moi Remix)

I first noticed Sydney-based design duo WBYK’s work on my recent trip to Australia for the Tycho tour. I was at the Metro Theater and the poster for a run of Best Coast shows immediately caught my eye. Once I got home and did a little more research I was really impressed by the depth of work in WBYK’s portfolio. I was also very surprised that their work somehow slipped by me for 7 years. Lots more good stuff over at their portfolio, some of the more exciting poster art I’ve seen in a while.

For those in the Austin, TX area, WBYK are having a gallery exhibit at Mondo through January 5th
