Head over to Gorilla vs. Bear to download a recent mix, Scott and I thought the cover art was as amazing as the music.
Hey it’s live clips of new Panda Bear songs that might be on his new record, everybody flip out! the man can do anything and we’d love it, i’m actually really enjoying this song but usually I enjoy his voice more than I do here.
I realized Dam-Funk makes music that feels like a relaxing night on the west coast, I don’t think the midwest or Canada could really fully love this sound without referencing 2-Pac somehow to enjoy it as much as someone from Oakland or LA.
Here’s a new song that was posted exclusively on De:Bug Magazine’s site done by Love-Step duo Praveen and Machinedrum aka Sepalcure, I love this song and I love these guys, I want them to blow up bigger than any [fill in the blank]step producers. Nice work guys! If you want to hear more from them, check out this focused post I did a few months ago.
Something slammin’ from James Pants, wasn’t expecting this but i’m definitely not bummed in the least bit, pure summer fire for the heads.
Domino Recordings new signing Wild Beasts scream out “hey we”re talented” right from the start of their record, this kind of record is a gateway drug to lure more people away from pop and into supporting independent. The singers voice is similar to Antony’s[sang with Bjork and Hercules and Love Affair] which is a niche sound kind of like Joanne Newsome, you love it or you hate it but with the catchy backing its hard not to love it.
I found Bear In Heaven accidentally by having to DJ an all Rock n’ Roll 4 hour DJ set Saturday night(which was really hard to do by the way if you want it to sound refreshing). I think what grabbed me was how it reminded me of the Daniel Johnson’s record Lazrus and the Phil Collins like vocal effect accompanied by the synths, that combo was what sold me.
A new one from James Pants, like his label mate Dam Funk but a bit more soulful and less boogie. Stones Throw newer signings[Mayer Hawthorne, Dam Funk, James Pants, etc] this year have just been dominating me, I want what Putter Butter Wolf is having, his A+R skills are right on the mark.
My long time friend Miguel also the guy that taught me how to DJ suggested that I check out Floating Points, pretty low key house that does a great job of tying together West Coast and Detroit House by using elements of what both regions are known for.
Wild Beasts – All The King’s Men – BUY
Bear In Heaven – You Do You – BUY
