The National+Fur+Via Tania+House Shoes

Posted by Jakub

Don’t hang me for not completely loving The National’s previous releases more than this new single that I prefer and has me excited for this new record. I can hear the super talent here and all the reason people love this band, i’m happy to be converted but I don’t know if I can handle a whole show yet.

Fur is on Waaga Records who really has their finger on the pulse of what I think will keep this instrumental indie in people’s face because of the undeniable catchy music coming from them. Fur has a great ear for synth choices for me personally which they touch on less lo-fi BoC meets that airy sound that was the backbone of IDM yet still has indie rock palette somehow here.

Via Tania recently released a EP that included good remixes from The Juan MacLean and Lemonade yet somehow I don’t think were as good as this original.

L.A. based influential heads Flying Lotus & House Shoes collab to make a respectable J Dilla like beat which is hard to do these days, i’ve had this playing pretty much every day since the sun has showed up here in Brooklyn.

“Via Tania” is typo’ed in the player, by the way. Love the selections as always, Jakub.

That House Shoes track is just him… it came out as a double A-Side with Flying Lotus’ “Sangria Spin Cycle.”

i’ve been listening my way back through the posts i’ve missed as i study for the LSAT, so i wasn’t paying attention to track info until each list ended (or something really struck me). i honestly thought that was a dilla track–spot on :).

thanks so much for all of the music. i’ve studied many an hour to these lists.
