One of my favorite simple album covers has to be this cover for Cashier Escape Route above because of the subjects involved and that bold light blue with a tiny bit of red always worked. This Phonem track is pretty laid back and brings me back to the earlier days of IDM and how it always helped me on the imaginative end of thinking of new designs.

There are a ton of feel good tracks out there and Blackalicious might have one that hits the Top 50 of all time.

Most of you might already know but Grizzly Bear has a new album coming in in May, this is just one track from it that was taken from their performance on David Letterman.

Here’s a pretty simple edit done by Michael Mayer, sadly I don’t know the original track but I can’t wait to DJ again and play this for a couple minutes.

Phonem – Blue Skies Over Leuna (Wish I Was Somewhere Else)


Blackalicious – Make You Feel That Way


Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks


Machael Mayer – Amanda

Wow, I haven’t heard that Cashier Escape Route comp in years – thanks for the reminder! I remember there being some being some great tracks by Arovane and Pole, too . . . time to dig it out again.

And yeah, ‘Amanda’ is an all-city classic – if you ever ID the source let me know. I’ve gotten into some fierce debates about whether the vocal is male or female (I think it’s a guy).

I’ve always been kinda eh about Grizzly Bear but this song is killer. I’ve listened to it like eight times in an hour. And for that being live… they sound amazing.

Yeah Blackalicious! I used to be so stoked on this song. ‘First In Flight’ was a great track too, such positive tunes.
