Now that its dropped I've been melting lately to Tell's Cool Bananas EP on Noire Et Blanche. It's definitely a coffee and contemplation or Sunday winding down affair, just really good thinking music. Stumbled upon another reason I'm in love with Bandcamp, the fantastic classic club cuts that are up and available in this digital age thanks to labels like Clone Classic and Jimpster's label Freerange. Speaking of classic sounds (you know I love them) recently received the lovely BV Re-Cuts #2 on SOM Underground from Brothers' Vibe, a slammin three tracker with heavy diva workouts to garagey affirming speech tunes (Words of a Nation). Y'all have yourselves a good weekend and I'll keep these fingers dusty and this head nodding. Peace!
Are you interesting? Are you more interesting than Mister Saturday Night? I didn't think so. The label continues its' dominance of the esoteric house milieu with this fine chunk of wax from Olsen, 'No One Belongs Here More Than You'. If your looking for nighttime driving music, crack them windows and put the Pete Herbert remix of the new Xinobi in the tape player, watch the lights fly by. I'm always on the look-out for balearic glassy synth sounds like this killer 4 track EP from Janeret . It's never a bad time for a bassline that goes rrRRMMmmmm, so get onto to Throb, from the Oliver Maass release 'Does it Matter' . It does matter, well it doesnt, but you do!
I think we can all agree it's about time to forget the idea that seasons are based on the earths tilt and what not. My vote for the new one would be largely based on when Yeezy is active on twitter. Forget all that snow to 70 degree weather in April for a minute, I'm hoping for some rain like Moonlighter's new one. Give Us Rain (Ah Mila) is the first single off of his debut EP for Rocksteady Disco, and it's just as moody as you'd expect any rainy day soundscape. For me though, his use of space is what I'm loving most, motifs are short and plentiful, but beautifully balanced and melodic, not to mention that moment of tension and release around 4:30 mark, so sweet. Pre-order and preview that one here. Aside from that, I've been jamming the soulful Tatsuro Yamashita's For You album recently, in my attempts at learning more about the smoother, jazzier side of dance music. In particular, the track Morning Glory has been mystifying me a lot, perhaps because of its possible influence on a popular video game soundtrack that I heard growing up. Give the whole album a listen, but you'll probably want to hold off on physically owning that one. Frickin' supply and demand.. Anyways, till next week friendos!
