Bluebrain – A brief concert…

May 28th, 2010 : by :: Tags: , ,

A Brief Concert from BLUEBRAIN on Vimeo.

I wanted to do a quick post on one of my favorite up and coming DC acts, Bluebrain.   The electronic duo have been very prolific over the past few months.  With the release of their LP Soft Power has come one interesting performance after another. This ranges from organizing events like a boombox walk to composing a Musical Tour of Smithsonian’s Sant Ocean Hall at the Natural History Museum.  Check out the video above of Bluebrain graciously performing for their DC neighbors as well as a song off their latest release Soft Power. These guys are doing cool and unique things here in DC so stay tuned… Enjoy!

Yonderboi :: Eyes For You

Eyes For You

Here’s a pretty rad piece of downtempo that I came across during my daily shuffle through MOG’s Music Player. Yonderboi takes samples of the song “I Only Have Eyes For You”, made popular by The Flamingos in 1959, and transforms the usual doo wopness of the song into a completely different beast. Check it!

Arcade Fire :: New Album Teaser Tracks

May 25th, 2010 : by :: Tags: , ,


A. The Suburbs




AA. Month of May

Arcade Fire has presumably completed their third record and plan on releasing it later this summer. And so they have put out this nifty little widget that contains two teaser tracks, “The Suburbs” and “Month of May”. This widget is kick ass by the way, I think you’ll enjoy it as much as the two songs. I know I did.

Jape -Ocean of Frequency & Borrowed Time With Peace home demos

Jape

Here’s another gem from Ireland. Jape was formed in 2003 as a side project by Richie Egan while playing in The Redneck Manifesto (really sweet experimental rock band). They’ve made some noise since then, winning the Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year 2008 with Ritual. Richie’s headin’ to the studio in June, so until then here are a couple home demos of his latest, “Borrowed Time With Peace” and “Ocean of Frequency.”

Toro y Moi – Leave Everywhere 7

May 23rd, 2010 : by :: Tags: , , ,

The new 7 inch for “Leave Everywhere” has been much talked about over the past few days.  I just wanted to add newdust’s voice to the chorus by saying that this song is great.  It is a departure in production style for Toro y Moi.  I am anxious to see if this is a summer time fling or a long term commitment to a new sound.  The new single is out July 20th on Carpark Records.  Enjoy!
