PNAU

29 Jul

Almost went to see Pnau two nights ago, but seeing that I don’t have any money and everything is so expensive here, it didn’t work out. I fell in love with “Embace” (ft. Ladyhawke) three years ago as the song to Jordy Smith’s part in Stranger Than Fiction (the surf flick). And since then I’ve discovered “Come Together”, “Baby”, and the fact that the duo are from Sydney.  I really missed out, their dancey electro music would have made for a good night.

Fun facts: The duo now works with Empire of the Sun. And they are really weird.

New M83

21 Jul

There’s this intangible quality to M83’s soundscapes that blow me away. The songs always have a direction, like you’re floating in slow motion towards something greater. Watch out for the unexpected suprrise in the last minute of the song. I thought the song was pretty passionate BEFORE the sax… I don’t know how I feel about it… can’t pretend that it doesn’t sound lame.

Clams Casino

13 Jul

Chill. Spacey. Lost. Numb….      I can’t believe this is legal.

Clams Casinos produced this beat for some hiphop stooge- Lil B (just picture the most stereotypical b-grade rapper to accompany his cliche name), don’t listen to the rap, it sucks.

Yeasayer- May 25 @ The Filmore (San Fran)

11 Jul

This post is a bit late, partially because her and I were going to do the post together but we never got to it. Yeasayer was awesome, an savory recipe for live music. Cool, fun, and energic enough to make a jumpin concert.

For the sake of Bisco

Song dedicated to my lucky friends who got to experience Camp Bisco this past weekend. This song is like red-lining your brain.

Delicate Dstep

A beautiful song with a ugly twist. Butch Clancy also does a similar remix to BOH’s “Funeral”.

A Day with Emilio

Visited mi amigo Emilio in Cincinnati and listened to nothing but punk for 24 hours whilst getting buck and skating.
