Get your freak on with these tracks (cooked by NATE BELASCO) like mellow alien parasites in your brain, pulsing with numb eroticism. Co-created cyborg poetics find voice in the alienated crooning of PAUL SHEPARD, slathered in autotune thicker than mayonnaise. These twin anthems - the politically questionable “Light ‘Em Up,” followed by “The Last Visible Dog” (a meditation on infinity inspired by Russell Hoban’s book, “The Mouse and His Child”) - feature hype by Dairy White.
Tremendously potent tribal pop a la Yeasayer from People Get Ready, who feature an ex-member of - you guessed it - Yeasayer. Splendid tunes.
Tame Impala - Feels Like We Only Go Backwards
Catchy song. Awesome animation.
”Kill all the Jews and Christ occurs” - Mitt Romney
He said that. For realsies. Ish.
This is my video remix of Romney’s candid camera angry rant about Mormonism.
Here’s my latest NEWSBEAT, a video remix of the 3rd Presidential Debate. Mitt Romney sure likes jobs a lot…
I made this remix of Romney’s infamous “binders full of women” line. Plus I made him say some other stuff…
Some dude put together a mini album of impressionistic folktronica that’s pretty coool. Wait what? That dude is me? Shameless self-promotion? No way. But yeah, you should probably check it out.
The Cataracs - All You ft. Waka Flocka Flame & Kaskade
This song doesn’t need the video to be hilarious. The lyrics are totally retarded, the genre changes every 40 seconds, and the goofy-synth-factor is off the charts, all which add up to one sticky track. And just when the airy female vocal chorus gets too cheesy, Waka Flocka jumps in and saves the song from itself with an utterly ridiculous shout-rap verse. Highly recommended (for a single listen).
Nathan Fake - World Of Spectrum
Here’s a nice dirty beat from Nathan Fake off his new release Steam Days. He’s a connoisseur of gritty synths that slide and wiggle perfectly over blown out hyperswung drums. His grooves have a loose feel that when paired with ever-present distortion give his mixes that contradictory organic/digital sound which is so welcome.
Dimlite - Swiss Air Towel (Higher)
Dimlite reaffirms his genius with his Abscission release. When an album supposedly comprised of “outtakes” is this good, you know this guy is on to something. His arrangements fill every part of the spectrum with punchy, quirky sounds. He has a knack for placing perfectly goofy little noises in all the right places. Drums dripping with swagger, vocals processed to make you pleasantly uncomfortable, and a compelling mix of retro-futurism and oddball melodicism add up to an album lacking only one thing: a dull moment.
Cortexelus has put together a DJ mix of psytrance that’s tempo is constantly increasing or decreasing. He calls it Spiraltrance, an apt name. This might just be the next big thing in dance music. You heard it here first.
Liars - The Exact Colour of Doubt
Liars’ all electronic new album is just what the doctor ordered. They seemed to have rightly assumed that all the kids wanna hear nowadays is beats and blips and bloops. The opening track, like much of the album, is mellow, meditative, and melodic. Singer Angus Andrew has completed his transformation to satanic Thom Yorke sound-alike, which is never a bad thing. And the electronic production style bares comparison to The Eraser - old school drum kits, understated synths, and off-kilter rhythms. Gone are the horror-punk freakouts of earlier albums, but the best aspects of their style remain, like Andrew’s intentionally out of tune layered vocal takes and wicked tunefulness.
Dirty Projectors - Offspring Are Blank
The first track off their new album is an indie-crunk banger, complete with their trademark angelic oooh harmonies over a subby beat. David Longstreth’s winding, loopy melody is a winner, and as usual it takes a few listens to appreciate its complexity and stickiness. Going from the minimalist verses to the fist-pumping, guitar-driven chorus is an unbelievably epic moment.
Delightfully quirky drum programming is paired nicely with a cavernous vocal treatment.
Sabre, Stray & Halogenix - “Askari”
