Jaakko Eino Kalevi :: Speak Out

Oct 15th, 2014 : by :: Tags: , , , , ,

It’s all over, the cold and grey are back. Hurry up and start waiting for spring. Or, embrace the frustration of fall and winter with its rarer, thus more beautiful, moments of release. Tension builds and builds… you’re cooped up in a buddy’s apartment, someone puts on a summer hit and everyone is dancing hard with big smiles. I’ll take that moment over a midsummers boogie, it’s more necessary. So, here is ammunition for that, a smile track from sunny Helsinki. Enjoy.

Their sound is dark and brooding, dance music with dark eyeliner. Grab the 7″ out on Prince George Records here. Enjoy.

Caribou :: Our love

Aug 28th, 2014 : by :: Tags: , , , , , ,
Caribou 2014 Caribou’s follow-up to his highly successful album Swim is due out October 7. The album is entitled Our Love and it’s hard not to be excited. Caribou’s take on popular music is consistently the most twisted yet listenable out there. He manages to pull from both sides of the playing field and create experimental music that’s doesn’t require Music Theory PhD to enjoy. If this track is any indicator, it seems that Caribou has absorbed a lot from the recent House music revival. I can’t wait. Enjoy…
