Music Monday – Series 07
Another busy week has passed! Tomorrow heading with the crew down to the MSPE 2009 Sound Show to see a presentation on the summer blockbuster : Star Trek. Should be really exciting… Reminds me that I need to call today to find out if I can possibly bring in a camcorder to document it. Regardless should be fun, exciting, and very educational.
Washed Out – Olivia
There seems to be a lo-fi analog craze lately. Though the recording quality of this record is pretty craptacular, I cant help but fall in love with it. Its extremely gritty…sounds like you rescued a tape submerged in maple syrup and only after careful drying in the hot sun you pop in the ghetto blaster and what do you know… it F^#! Plays!. There are only two cuts on the album that have vocals; One of them being ‘Belong’ and the other the beautiful Olivia. Three things that kill on this tune: Synth Bass / Sick Arpeggiating Chorus Melody/ and the classic 80s Synth Toms.
The Kilamanjaro Dark Jazz Ensemble – Palace of the Tiger Woman
Angel Deradoorian – Weed Jam
Really digging this tune. Soulful Bass, Hip Hop Beats, and a Sick Bed of Female Harmonization. This deserves a remix with a killer lyricist.
Mount Fuji Doom Jazz Corporation – A Place For Fantasies
Seems as though Mountains are the place to go for Jazz. This reminds me quite a bit of Lalo Schifrin. Deep, Dark, Exotic Vibes. A nice build of tension with some killer atmospherics, sustaining drones, pulsing bassline, and slowly rising drums. If this is a Place for Fantasies.. Count me In!
