Panda Bear

19 Mar

Saw this surf video by Morgan Massen and loved the song. Panda Bear is the solo project of Noah Lennox of Animal Collective. Such a proper fit as the soundscape for a playful californian point break.

Hip Hip Hooray

Today was a good day. Slept in, fought off sickness, got a bunch of work done, then found 3 awesome new songs IN A ROW. That never happens.

These songs are pretty hip.  And chill…  like…  chillip,  bro.

“The Reflection of You” is a new track from Brooklyn-based (hip) rock group: Bear in Heaven (I first read it as “Beer in Heaven” (so chilll))

Download

“!N3V3R SL33P!” is a relaxing single (chill) with an ironic  title (hip) via the Brooklyn-based (hip) Poor Spirits

Download

“Harvest Moon” by the LA-based Poolside (chill, bro) and is music they like to call “daytime disco” (hip)

2 for 1 Tuesday

5 Sep

In the unlikely case you like one, you’ll likely like the other. What both of these producers have in common is that they have made some freakishly inconsistent stuff, though consistently experimental. The Noise-rock band HEALTH does a cover of a song from the sample-happy Pictureplane, and Blood Diamonds depart from their tropical flavor in “Heart” towards a soundscape by the likes of  M83/Animal Collective… hmm…

The question is, do you really need 2 songs, or is this a marketing scheme to convince you that NEED 2, when only 1 is sufficient. But the fact that the songs are free makes this irrelevant, and it is in fact merely a choice to download not just 1, but 2 songs. Now, faced with 2 choices as opposed to 1, you are more likely to download neither according to the paradox of choice theory. So no, this is not a marketing scheme, and no I will probably not do another 2 for 1 next Tuesday, or ever again.
