Nazcar Nation - The Remixes

Unouomedude's remix of Beeswax and the Destiny Intro Remix are the highlights.

The Tumbled Sea - Melody Summer

The male/singing half of Magic Man formerly recorded semi-ambient piano led tracks under the moniker "The Tumbled Sea." He produced 2 albums under that name, one of which is available for free below. Check out his Myspace for more music if you like it. Other than songwriters though the projects don't seem to have much in common. The Tumbled Sea being simply piano and occasional string/woodwind while Magic Man is just electronics and vocals. However, I've spent a lot of time with Real Life Color (Magic Man's debut album) this year and I can hear some resemblance in the melodies created.The mood conveyed is a bit more somber and the instruments used are vastly different but you can hear the same creative voice in both.

Monday, October 25, 2010


I've really been Jamming to Paperfangs lately, in particularly their song Oh I Wandered. Yeah, you could say they're chillwave informed, but its much more clear headed, without a sense of the woozy melancholy that really signifies that kind of music. They remind me a lot of a more matured Computer Magic. They have a new single out via Eardrumspop(fo free) and check out my personal favorite of their's Oh I Wandered.

Oh I Wandered by Paperfangs

Lykke Li - Get Some/Paris Blue

I'm never really been a fan of Lykke Li but I figured I'd check out their new single anyways and was pleasantly surprised! The A side Get Some is a bit too "Target commercial soundtrack" for me. B side Paris Blue is the real highlight here though. It reminds me of a more wistful Runaway (The National, not Kanye West) Download it here! And Kudos to GVB for the awesome polaroid.

Girls - Heartbreaker

Girls, probably 2009's most buzzed about band have had a relatively quiet year in 2010, but that could change soon. Girls have a new EP coming out in November called Broken Dreams Club, download the first single in exchange for an email address below.

Adelyn Rose EP

You can't beat this girl's voice. Think female Bon Iver but a lot happier, same home town too. If you aren't already interested then you probably won't like it. If you can't tell, I've been on a bit of a Folk kick lately...

The Reluctant Graveyard - Jeremy Messersmith

Coma Cinema - Caroline Please Kill me / Tour All Winter

I was actually hanging out with some friends last night at about 1:30 when I got a facebook update from Coma Cinema saying 2 new songs were up on Delicious Scopitone (of course). I had to honestly fight the urge to not just walk out without a word and go back to my dorm to listen to them. Anyways, its in between classes right now so I finally have the time to check them out.
I mean you probably know the drill by now, I freak out everytime I get to listen to a new Coma Cinema song but seriously, these two are amazing!

"Caroline, Please Kill me now" reminds me of a fully formed "Come On Apathy" (first Coma Cinema song I heard and maybe my favorite). Just like "Come on Apathy", it clocks in under two minutes but its pure pop-folk joy I'm going to be playing on repeat for probably hours at a time. Tour All Winter is a bit moire pensive, but its cool hearing Mat pick up the tempo on it and add a few extra layers to his sound. It finds a really sweet balance between his more upbeat tunes and his more reflective ones.

Blue Suicide isn't out yet you can grab Mat's 2 earlier releases here

Yep, Daft Punk decided to pop up for their first live performance in 3 years during the encore of Phoenix's set at Madison Square Garden last night. If you haven't watched the videos yet... do it they are nothing short of incredible.

Guards - Swimming After Dark

If I'm not mistaken, the Guards front-man is the male/guitar playing half of Cults, but nobody ever seems to mention that so I may have totally made that up? Yours Truly has the premier of a new Guards song! Check it out below and if you're new to Guards check out their fantastic debut EP as well.

I like Delicious Scopitone more than I like my own blog...

Delicious Scopitone is great. For starters, they share my love for Coma Cinema and Wise Blood(actually they might have started my love for Wise Blood, I can't really remember) plus I download probably 3 out of every 4 songs they upload. Not going to lie, they have better taste in music than I do, I mean really, if you had to chose between reading DS and reading this blog I'd tell you to chose DS any day of the week.
So anyways, I think all that lovin' justifies a repost from time to time! So here's a music video I saw on their site that I've listened to on repeat for about 20 minutes now.

The first time I heard this song I didn't really realize that it was a remix (or Edit I guess, from the sound of it all they did was slow it down and maybe take out some superfluous synth) and hearing the original afterwards was just kind of weird. Don't get me wrong though, the original is not too shabby itself!

Because I Love Andrew

My Buddy Andrew (Who's Ginormous CD collection is one of the main reasons I'm not stil listening to Breaking Benjamin and Nickleback) very recently had a birthday! I told him I'd give a mix CD for his birfday but of course I don't have any blank CDs! Since this is going to be transfered to a CD, and because I didn't post a mix last week this one is 80ish minutes instead of 40 like I said they would start being. Like I've mentioned in my last 2 posts I have a ton of homework I should be doing right now so no Individual MP3s (at least for the moment) but several of those songs I've posted about before or aren't new.

procrastination and music you could call chillwave.

Is Golden Panda Chillwave? I think he is but I've never really been sure what that word meant! I mean I know Neon Indian is chillwave... thats about it. Anyways, I've been listening to a lot of stuff in the same vein as Golden Panda (JK YA'LL I was totally joking when I called Gold Panda Golden Panda two times in a row) tonight and I don't feel like doing Chemistry homework so I'm going to post some of them.

You - Gold Panda
Eagle Claw - Micah Smith and Mirfa
Roxanne - Teams (Via NMB)
The Swell - Nazcar Nation
Nerd Cat - Waskerley Way

Music Videos: FLying Lotus, Gospel Choir, Holy F**k

Its been a pretty stressful last week, and its not getting much better till at least Wednesday this week so thats why I haven't had much to post. I still don't have much time now so I'm just going to repost a few music videos I've liked over the past week or so!

I don't really know whats going on here, but its a great song and the music video reminds me of reboot!

Flying Lotus - Kill Your Co-Workers from Warp Records on Vimeo.

Wow. This video really has a special place in my heart, Gospel Choir is Owen Holmes, bass for player for DUVAL-ites the Black Kids. The music video is essentially about a road trip to the Ichetucknee river, I river me and my friends go down at least once a summer! The song itself it delightfully twee but I probably wouldn't be that interested in it if I didn't connect with the video so much.

AUTOMOBILE by GOSPEL MUSIC from Triad Publicity on Vimeo.

Holy Fuck. Cats.

Stream Avey Tare's new album Down There

Have I mentioned how much I love NPR's first listens yet? You know how there's always that one album that you can't wait for? Well since Suburbs came out in August its been Down There!(next is my beauitiful dark twisted fantasy) I've had so much work to do this week that I haven't had time to post anything, but there was no way I couldn't take 30 minutes out of my day to listen to this! Also, I didn't post a mix tuesday so I'll post an hour and 20 minute one next Tuesday to make up for it.

Stream Down There at NPR.

NazcarNation - Dynazty EP

Too chill to write about. You just gotta listen mayne. But seriously, reminds me a bit of Magic Man and Discovery (Discovery is still relevant right?). None of the songs are bad but Beeswax and Monolith Prep are the stand outs.

New Music: Shimmering Stars, Bedrooms of the Nation

Shimmering Stars and Bedrooms of the Nation have a lot in common. They are both from Canada, they both make dreamy early 60s rock, they are both amazing and they are of course top friends of each other on myspace. And seriously, thank goodness for that last one!! I discovered Bedrooms of the Nation while listening to Shimmering Stars on Myspace and decided to check them out solely on their picture and name.

I'm Gonna Try (via p4k)
Shimmering Stars has been getting a fair amount of buzz lately (I first heard of them on Delicious Scopitone) and deservedly so! I really can't stop listening to Sun's Going Down, perfect harmonies, perfect rock out. "I'm gonna Try" thrives on the tension by pitting its scarily antisocial lyrics and bedroom recording against its sugary sound. Sabians feels a bit like a Fleet Foxes song.

Shiny Fur starts off slow, and shows some seriously rewarding restraint before rocking out. Post Nihilism's and Vibrations' use of vocal samples fit the mood in a creepy but appropriate way, not unlike Cults. Both of those songs are louder and edgier than anything by Cults or even Shimmering Stars though.

New Coma Cinema songs

Coma Cinema might be the artist I've blogged about most so far so its kind of unnecessary to say how excited I am for his new album Blue Suicide. Mat recently released a new song to download, and another to stream at his blog, presumably they will both be on Blue Suicide. I'm not such a huge fan of Crystal Ball Broken (the song streaming) but Desolation's plan (which you can get below or at his blog) is exactly what I've come to expect and love from Coma Cinema. Of course its less than 2 minutes long, and the kind of song you can listen to over and over again on repeat.

Stream live sets From S. Carey, Tallest Man on Earth

I'm generally only interesting in a few folksy artists each year, and this year the only two I can think of are S. Carey and The Tallest Man on Earth. Well what do you know, they're on tour with each other! NPR has streams of their live sets from their last night on tour together here. also theres about 2 minutes of club music playing at the beginning of The Tallest Man on Earth's set, so don't be worried about sound quality like I was!

Sean Carey, who releases under S. Carey was first noticed for being Bon Iver's drummer and released his first solo album, the heartbreakingly beautiful "All We Grow" earlier this year. The Tallest Man on Earth has received many Dylan comparisons, for his croaky, yet easily connecting voice. You'd probably never know it from listening to his music, but he's actually from Sweden and (obviously)English is not his native language!

10/5/10 Mixtape

So I've decided to half the lengths of the playlists I'm making every week, but its not just because I'm lazy I swear! The reason I started making the playlists/mixtapes (I use the terms interchangeably if you haven't noticed) an hour and 20 minutes long is because thats how much can fit on a standard CD, and these mixtapes started out offline, with me just giving copies on CDs to my friends. When I was giving them out to friends I'd usually give them maybe 3 or 4 in a year, not 1 every week! Not to mention, most of the mixtapes that other people have made that I listen to(in order) are about 20 to 30 minutes long, so I'm might half the length once again. As is, I'm going to try to make all the new ones just under 40 minutes so I can fit two playlists on one CD in case I feel the need to start burning them again.
Tl;Dr? Mixtapes are going to be around 40 minutes from now on instead of 80 minutes. As always, mp3s below or grab the zip of the whole thing here. (Update: I forgot to put the .zip in order this week so check below for the order if you care)
The mix I made this week is probably tied with the mix I made for Jaime a couple weeks ago for my favorite. It came about last night when the song that ended up opening this playlist came up on shuffle and a certain line (Mountain of Flesh: "I'm thankful for these moments, even if they're meaningless") made me think of a certain girl. (not the girl in the picture above, shes just from the lovely google images, that would be waaay creepy). With that in mind all the songs on this mix are just songs that remind of purty girls I've known at one point or another(and trust me there are a ton at FSU). So yeah... I may or may not be that loser who gives mixtapes to girls he likes and these songs may or may not end up on a CD like that at some point in the future.

Mountain of Flesh - Gobble Gobble
Wet Hair - Japandroids (Teen Daze remix)
In Ruins - Fol Chen - (Baths remix)
VCR - The XX
No One's Gonna Love You - Cee lo Green (Band of Horses Cover)
Starring - Freelance Whales
Buildings - Unouomedude
Mary - Yellow Ostrich
Cubism Dreams - Local Natives
Sun's Going Down - Shimmering Stars
Dakota - Bradley Hathaway

Avey Tare - Lucky 1

Yeah I know I'm a day (real time, thats several weeks blog time) behind on this one, but Avey Tare's first single from his solo debut is available for download now! The reason for my lateness is mostly because I didn't think I was going to post this at all. I don't post anything if I don't like it even if it is from artists I really love/respect and at first Lucky 1 just seemed... really weird. Is that a saxophone or a synth? As it turns out though Lucky 1 is a lot like Small Black's recent single Photojournalist. The first time I heard it I couldn't get over the odd beat and instrumentation, but somewhere along the line the vocals just totally invaded my subconscious! In Lucky 1 its the first verse and the chorus of "were you crying?" over and over again that just won't stop floating through my head.

Wise Blood - Solo 4 Claire

One of my current favorites, Wise Blood will release a single on Transparent in November, and they're offering the A Side for free right now. Solo 4 Claire is nowhere near what I was expecting from Wise Blood. Its still got the signature skewed/half remembered samples but the hip hop backdrop is totally gone, replaced instead with a stomping psychedelic beat. The vocals seem much more aggressive, in both tone and lyrical content and to be honest are pretty scary. It reminds me a bit Animal Collective's Summertime Clothes, and the distance it has from the majority of his work so far is really exciting.

Solo 4 Claire - Wise Blood

Small Black - Search Party

I'm not sure words can entirely describe my love for Small Black. Their first single Despicable Dogs was probably my favorite song from 2009 (its either that or While you wait for the others) but these guys are no one hit wonders. Their Debut Ep? Pretty easily explains why theres so much Chillwave out there these days. Their first LP New Chain comes out on October 26 (Oh and they're playing here in Tally on the 27th!!!) and Search Party is the second released song from the album. Unlike the first single, (Photojournalist) Search Party could easily have been on the EP and that is definitely a good thing!
