YOUTH

August 30, 2009

Brisbane is a boomin´! My former home town (hot as hell) has now (after my departure of course) become a breeding-ground for interesting producers and Dj´s. One of these is Youth. He blends the delights of cosmic disco with the eagerness of electro and house. I´m smitten.

SILK

August 28, 2009

I just posted something from this guy a few days ago. And today I discovered he´s got a new release on DFA. He is Canyons, and the release is “Fire Eyes”. I give you a wonky dance treat from that 12″.

Canyons – Dancing On Silk

FURTHER

August 27, 2009

It seems this blog is becoming a promotional platform for the Ooft crew. I´de just like to clarify the we have no direct affiliation with the at all. We just think they´re awesome!

Anyways, this morning I´m posting a classic 80s track, that has gotten edit treatment from The Revenge. Ex The Temptations member Dennis Edwards recorded this song in 1984 and it features Siedah Garrett on vocals dueling with Dennis.

BASTERDS

August 26, 2009

I just saw the Basterds, and as you would expect, it´s beyond great. And the soundtrack does not disappoint either. Composed mostly of non-original compositions of the spaghetti-western variety, plus a welcome contribution from Giorgio Moroder.

Tarrantino chooses to end the movie with a nod to a spaghetti-western milestone, Ennio Morricone´s “Rabbia E Tarantella” from Sergio Leone´s 1968 classic Once Upon A Time In The West. This is after he suggests that “Basterds” just might be his masterpiece, and indeed it is.

Ennio Morricone – Rabbia E Tarantella

HAPPINESS

August 25, 2009

This Tuesday morning, we´re taking it back to the late 60s. Not literary, of course, but rather new current music that has that 60s vibe to it.

Jonathan Jeremiah is a british folk rock singer that gets the remix treatment from New York disco don Morgan Geist.

Jonathan Jeremiah – Happiness (Morgan Geist Remix)

The Time And Space Machine is a project fronted by the “other guy” from Beyond The Wizard´s Sleeve, namely Richard Norris. Modern psych rock, much in the vain of “Sleeve”.

The Time And Space Machine – Children Of The Sun

SECRETARY

August 25, 2009

If the track information didn´t state it as clearly as it does, I would never have guessed the second most famous Beatle did this song. There is no doubt about it, it´s Paul McCartney at his most whimsical and weird. The intro sounds like a Dutch electro song from 2001, or something…

The song is taken from the 1980 album McCartney II, which in itself is a whimsical and weird album.

Paul McCartney – Temporary Secretary

Check the album out on Spotify.

Summer is slipping away slowly but surely. Snow and icy streets linger around the corner, waiting to envelope people with its death like certain darkness. But we still have music.

The I´m A Cliché compilation has been out a few months now, but I only just discovered it. I would like to share this old school house-y rendering by Canyons.

Canyons – Blue Shakes (Buy)

And a wonderful track by fellow Norwegian Mental Overdrive, haunting and melodic.

Mental Overdrive – Dekadin (Buy)

Lastly something new-ish from DFA.

Altair Nouveau – Showdown (Buy)

WEEKEND

August 21, 2009

Seeing as it´s Friday morning and the weekend is about 8 hours away, I thought it fitting to post something from Calvin Harris´ new album, aptly entitled “Ready For The Weekend”. Three or four years have passed since Mr. Harris got a record deal through myspace and claimed to have created disco. The new album is not better than the last, but it´s equally good. Few songs pass the 4 minute mark, so an pop opus at heart (he even uses the god awful auto-tune). But these are pretty good:

Calvin Harris – Dance Wiv Me

Calvin Harris – 5iliconeator

Calvin Harris – I´m Not Alone
