A new favorite, recent DaM Funk hasn’t caught my ear until now, perfect timing, definitely playing this tomorrow on Valentine’s Day w/ Lemonade at Cameo Gallery tomorrow.

Foxes In Fiction beautifully covers “Heaven or Las Vegas” by the Cocteau Twins. Pulls off the vocal soo nicely, Warren is in Brooklyn now, this summer should be a great one for him.

Courtship comes up with a dreamy remix for a Sydney-based group, its light and enjoyable to take in, reminds me of that first spring wind on the face.

We all need more Pure X, twaggin’ out for those people that have worn out their Kurt Vile and Real Estate records, this is a refreshing listen.

After posting the Solvent song yesterday and watched the trailer that it was intended for, oh man does it make me want to own a modular synth but all I can think about is how i’d only make arpeggios though, hmmm. Also, how do you finish a song on these? I’d just make music all day and never even think of recording it as a song.

“I Dream of Wires” (IDOW) is an upcoming, independent documentary film about the phenomenal resurgence of the modular synthesizer – exploring the passions, obsessions and dreams of people who have dedicated part of their lives to this esoteric electronic music machine. Written and directed by Robert Fantinatto, with Jason Amm (Ghostly International recording artist Solvent) serving as producer and co-writer, IDOW is set to receive it’s festival premiere, May 2013.
