Khruangbin – Firecracker

Jul 3rd, 2015 : by :: Tags: , ,

A Thai funk rock band from Texas you say? That’s awesome. Khruangbin, the Thai word for airplane or “engine fly”, formed in Space City, Houston, were heavily influenced by dusty rock cassette tapes from 60s and 70s Thailand.

Singles Club Issue 5 Vol. 2 Monster Rally – Moonlight Ballroom

Jul 2nd, 2015 : by :: Tags: , , , ,
I’ve been on a Monster Rally kick lately. The brainchild of Ted Feighan, Monster Rally is the sample-based embodiment of all things rad from the tropicalia and lounge music of the 1950s and 1960s. Singles Club, a super cool quarterly mini-journal with exclusive 7″ records, just released Issue 5 last month, with a killer new track from Feighan. Check out “Moonlight Ballroom” and read Issue 5 Vol. 2 here.

Acid Tongue – Lately

Jun 26th, 2015 : by :: Tags: , ,
It’s about bloody time we grace ye olde music blog with a little jangly garage rock, yeah? I mean, fuck that chilldub-synthpop-IDM…amirite? One tab of Acid Tongue should do the trick. They’ve been dropping new tracks on the interwebs this month, and something tells me we’ll be hearing a lot more from these dudes very soon. If you’re in the Seattle area, check them out at The Capitol Hill Block Party next month!

Frenic – DR DAD

Jun 25th, 2015 : by :: Tags: ,
DJ/Producer Frenic is a master of his craft. He splices and dices sampled tracks, everything from bluesy harmonica to Gordon Lightfoot, and layers them alongside some really great beats to breathe some modern life back into them. DR DAD, released in 2013, is my favorite of his so far. Each of his albums play out a little differently, which is what I like about him.
Here are my two favorites from the album:

And if you like what you hear, check out his latest album Monomyth: Separation, exploring the sights and sounds of Greece, an album he wrote during and after a 10-city tour of the country.

The Dip

Jun 19th, 2015 : by :: Tags: , ,
I thought your Friday might benefit from having a little funk-soul (brother…right about now). The Dip is a talented group of dudes with some soulful tunes teeming with horns, the occasional organ, and some killer drum and bass lines…Not to mention dat voice! Their debut self-titled is an entertaining half-hour, with some songs that are just screaming to be heard live.

Sax G – Lullaby Of The Forbidden Dancer

Jun 18th, 2015 : by :: Tags: , , ,
Sax G is the modern day embodiment of the electronic goodness of 80s and 90s R&B, minus the cheesy lyrics. His latest release, Lullaby of the Forbidden Dancer, is a collection of ideas revolving around chopped up sampled vocals and beats that showcase his talent as a producer. My favorite track, “Quotient”, plays with the iconic vocals of Sade, saying “The truth, the lies”, wrapped up tight with a simple beat and minimalist melody.
