Lost Horizons
A lot of people may know Chairlift from their Apple commercial but yesterday these 2 friends from Brooklyn turned me onto them by playing me their edit of Chairlift’s Evident Utensil and I thought I had to share it here since it was really catchy and reminds me a little of Kate Bush and that cute IDMish video of the girl singing, download the edit here exclusively, oh yeah I went there.

I really like the packaging for this Lemon Jelly album even though it doesn’t fit in any CD rack that I have, the cover above is great, the actual title(which isn’t shown) is a red balloon sticker that sits in the top right corner usually and has the bands name in it. The song Spacewalk builds nicely, it has this excitement to it because when the drums kick in its hard not to smile.

The same friends that shared the remix above of Chairlift showed me this video of Bat For Lashes, I guess i’m a little late to this party but better late than never going to the party.

I found this Snow In Mexico EP as a free download/donation site run by the musician, some really slow dizzee shoegaze from this Italian born rocker, I highly recommend Cinema 5010.

All the ducks are swimming in the water… fralalalala.

Best intro ever. Hopefully people know what I’m talking about.

The Plaid remix of What’s A Girl To Do? is pretty good too, if you haven’t heard it.
Thanks for the Snow in Mexico link, really like it.

My record label Self Storage Recordings will be releasing the Snow In Mexico EP on CD in May. Gorgeous art, amazing music. Will be available directly from the label, and at Disk Union in Japan.

I absolutely love the Chairlift song. I think I listened to it 5 times today. It def. helped to inspire my designs I made today.

For those who liked the remix, I’d check out the original version of Evident Utensil – I much prefer that one.

I found the “original” version of Evident Utensil to sound unpolished and jarring which I do not personally like. IMHO the remix is 100X better.

I agree with C.J. about the “little fluffy clouds” by the Orb reminder. Actually, I have a version of “Little Fluffy Clouds” that is 20 min. or so long and would love some tracks on here that last that long. For me personally, my art is influenced by the music I listen to and there is something to be said for getting into a 20 – 60 min flow without the interruption of a new chorus, theme, key, etc…Unless of course the changes in key or theme always come back to the promenade ala Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky. Any suggestions for mixed compositions that last that long. I’m thinking of a contemporary “Pictures at an Exhibition.” Does that exist?

“Snow in Mexico” is a dead-ringer for “Treasure” by Chapterhouse from their Whirlpool album. Nice to hear some shoegaze revival, though.
