The “Sister, Sister”s of indie pop HAIM have received one of the highest of honors thanks to a remix of their song “Forever” by the godfather of electronica, Giorgio Moroder. The Italian virtuoso grinds the original hit through a factory of four-on-the-floor drum machines yielding this robotic, vocodor-enriched track. Listen in…
A tale from an alternate universe: The Beatles never broke up.
“On Sept. 9, 2009 I experienced something that I still am having trouble believing happened to me.
“I came into the possession of a cassette tape containing a Beatles album that was never released.
“I dont expect you to believe what happened to me, I sure wouldn’t, but thats why I grabbed the tape as proof that my experience was real.”
I love everything about this. Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, & Starr reunite with a mash-up of their solo efforts to form Everyday Chemistry, The Beatles’ final masterpiece.
My two favorites are “Talking To Myself” feat. Harrison’s “Stuck Inside A Cloud“, Lennon’s “Stranger’s Room“, & McCartney’s “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey“; and “Soldier Boy” feat. McCartney’s “Listen To What The Man Said” & Lennon’s “Isolation“.
Afternoon treat for you all with some DC remix love. Gavin Holland has taken a slow-burner Balearic approach to local indie-rockers Silver Liners‘ single “Shine On”. Grab the latest from the band HERE and enjoy…
This track is piece of subtle music that sits perfectly comfortably in its own space. I’m really fond of the space between ambient music and house music. If you can skillfully float a hazy loop atop an understated house beat, the rhythm tends to ground the track. With that rhythmic grounding, you can calmly explore more ambient space while holding the listeners attention. Enjoy…
Here is another slow burner for you to enjoy in the dying moments of Summer ‘13. As ever, it has been touched by my own personal Midas: Todd Terje. About four years ago, I burnt out of a university music conservatory after spending the previous six years practicing and fantasizing about becoming a classical musician. Upon burning out, I shunned music and my lifelong obsession with it went into hibernation. About six months later, Todd Terje disco edits brought me back and reawakened my obsession with music in a whole new way. I had the honor of hugging the tall Norwegian this summer. Anyways… here are some warm swirling synths for your own nostalgic ruminations, Enjoy.
And we’re back. Get breezy with this pop-jam from The Vaccines, the John Hill + Rich Costey remix of their track “Do You Want A Man?”.
