CEO + Pioulard + To Rococo Rot + Mueller

Posted by Jakub

CEO is half of Sweden’s The Tough Alliance, its upbeat pop that reminds me of the lighter side that the Balearic sound needed to keep that great genre going.

Benoit Pioulard does a non vocal remix of Owen Pallett’s recent single, great texture and echo.

Its been awhile since we’ve heard anything relevant from long time instrumental masters To Rococo Rot, i’m really enjoying this one, it has soo many hints of what I enjoyed from their first few records but touches on maybe even better melodies.

You probably won’t find Paul Mueller on iTunes because he’s a street performer that I saw in Manhattan yesterday, he hammered away beautiful melodies on his Dulcimer while I sat and starred. I’m guessing he’ll play more? Union Square L stop at around 3p? if you see him ask him to add the bells to the LP that were on his ankles, that combo made me miss 3 trains.

I second Navis and donato0. Hip Skate is great.

I tried to do a search to buy a copy of the mp3 but struck out. I didn’t dig too deep though.

Jakub – any suggestion on where to find a cd or mp3s of Paul Mueller?

What is this Benoit Pioulard remix from? Was he just randomly making a remix of that OP song or did he do more? Is this from a collection of others doing Heartland remixes? I want to know more! Such a gorgeous remix. Gorgeous. Gave me chills.

I would be very surprised if Paul Muller is not on i-tunes. Most NYC subway musicians are on i-tunes. I know because I’m one of them.
Try Googling Mecca Bodega – that’s Paul’s band’s group. They are definitely on MySpace. If you contact him, tell him the ‘Saw Lady’ says ‘hi’ :)
And if you pas by the 34th street subway station this afternoon – come and say ‘hi’ to me :)

P.S. If you’re in town on August 7th – check out the 8th annual NYC Musical Saw Festival –

THE SAMPS, thank you so much for showing me them…it is like Lone but better, and without the obnoxious sidechain compression! I can’t get enough.
