Devendra Barnhart – Shabop Shalom
Welcome, Hi. Some random picks, just to let you know that a long dispute usually means that both parties are wrong, that in order to catch a mouse you have to make a noise like a cheese and the best advice I’ve ever received is, ‘No one else knows what they’re doing either.’
The Fiery Furnaces – Ex Guru
The Fiery Furnaces – Quay Cur
I saw them for the first time live this Friday, together with Enon. Apparently they’re neighbours who live across the street of each other, somewhere in America.
Great song from the new album and a mini-opera from Blueberry Boat.
Fridge – Clocks
Don Caballero – Peter Crisis Jazz
An old Fridge song + this is where Battles got some of its mustard, mainly because Ian Williams is a member of both. It sounds as if Battles is a more focused version of Don + crazy vocals and an ace tight drummer. It’s Math Rock Jim, but not as we know it.
Lindstrøm – Breakfast In Heaven (diskjokke remix)
Metro Area – Ready My Mind RMM Special Dub - original mix
Thank god, they’re still willing and able! New material from Metro Area and it’s splendid stuff. A novelty this time are the vocals (in the original track not the dub version) but anyone who has heard some of their solo work has heard this kind of vocals before.
Rubies – The Keys (Studio remix)
One of my favourite laidback chillout songs this year and on top of that a remix of it by Studio my favourite band from Sweden.
The Neon Judgement – Tv Treated (Tiga Vox)
LCD Soundsystem – 45:33 Part 1. Shame on You
LCD Soundsystem – 45:33 (Nike promo)
I’ve been listening for weeks now, over and over again, to this promo mix that LCD Soundsystem made for Nike. It’s simply brilliant. I’ve tried it while running and it works ;-) I’m gonna try it back when the weather gets better, in Spring.
The Wombats – Moving To New York
Stephen Malkmus – No More Shoes
Shearwater – A Hush
Burial – Archangel
A new song from that difficult second album, as they say, but I’ve listened to it twice and it’s already one of my favourites this year.
Jerboa – What If
Just Jack – No Time
Just Jack – Writer’s Block
I’ve got that debut album from Just Jack a couple of months now, but I only started to listen to it recently. Some of the songs are nice but when he starts to rap it always sounds a bit like Robin Williams, which is not exactly the world’s greatest rapper. You know, it’s an art form, Rap, but when he sings is all ok, it’s simply great.
Asa – Fire On The Mountain
A young girl from Nigeria with a songtitle that sounds like a C&W traditional but I haven’t checked the lyrics yet to see whether it’s a free adaptation of that traditional or an original song.
Blue feat Stevie Wonder – Signed, Sealed, Delivered
George Mcrae – I Get Lifted (Todd Terje edit)
Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons – Beggin’ (Pilooski edit)
Les Parisiennes – Je Te Deteste
Vraiment, je m’excuse, mais tu m’a compris.
Pauline Croze – Jeunesse Affamée - Les Ptites Qui Piaffent
