This is one of the standout tracks from the new ep from new Chicago-based group Ark of Limbs. These guys are friends of mine so I'm perhaps biased, but I really like this track. lush, dark 'electronic' pop with lots of live instruments.
BARTH!, this is his latest single (i think) from 2004. I recently odered everything this guy has made.he's from europe so i may be behind the curve on this one, but it seems no one stateside shows him much love and he hasn't been posted on gabba. So I hope you like it half as much as me. I can't get enough. WATCH THIS VIDEO instead of clicking download song http://www.cinematicfilm.com/fabien%20leroy.html
its the song with the video. go to his website for more tracks.
Ben Jacobs aka Max Tundra says, 'My remix for Mint Royale, the band who did that Singing In The Rain reworking. The last thing I shall ever do on a Game Boy serves as an introduction to some thorough bounciness for other instruments as the song develops.' If you like Max Tundra, you can give him your support by purchasing a Franz Ferdinand album at dominorecordco.com
geltoob klawnoom, with original material like MJ
you can't go far wrong so its good to hear something more imaginative. An Thriller classic re-imagined as backward electro, lovely..
Something new, an 80 minute (107meg) CDR shaped mix of my favourite music from this year and some other stuff. Includes lots of electro, some dubstep and even a little hint of Sparks, perfect for christmas partys and christmas car journeys, tracklist here
This is the first single by the Pop Group
, funky and punky at the same time, at the date of its release in 79 this was HOT
in the underground. They became icons, spreading the word after their split as Pigbag
, Rip Rig & Panic
and Maximum Joy
(much underrated, just say STRETCH, maybe this will follow soon). I almost forgot the Glaxo Babies
, their Lp 9 months to the disco is still one of my favorite POP-Avantgarde records.
Watch this space.... as it is almost impossible to buy
1982 - Sweden. Italo swedish new wave?
This track is made by Alosyus, a talented young electro producer from Belgium. His productions sound like Legowelt
and Orgue Electronique
. You can find more tracks of him here
Finnish Static, picked this up thanks to boomkats
huge end of year lists, exotic like an 8-bit Yma Sumac
Upbeat studio one track with proper use of 'Bling' and a chorus I started singing so much that I began making up my own words to it.
Great, great, great, very nice, just listen to it, copping some Lomax I know, but yes it is that good.
At only 2:27 minutes this song shuffles through a first half of what sounds like a band warming up and then the whole thing morphs into a wrecked disco house song for the second half. A bit scatterbrained but somehow it works wonderfully.
Originally released in 1978 on Out Records and later reissued by Rephlex (Richard D james and Luke vibert's private label), Black Devil's "disco club", is one of those extremely rare disco masterpieces. The whole record was made in Paris using synths and tape loops. This is way ahead of it's time.
Yes, this is catchy and repetitive in the worst sing-songy way... and yes, yes this is from Stephen Mason of 'The Beta Band' fame/infamy... but goshdarngolly I have listened to it a million times over the past 4 years and I still can't fault it. There is reportedly new KBT material on the way and for that I am grateful.
This tiny playful instrumental song opened the 2003 release "fingers crossed". I think this would also serve as a perfect opener for any synth layered party.
i tried to upload this for the 12 month anniversary of peel, it didnt work for some reason, but thats good, now i dedicate this to cheap flights globally, from 26 UK airports. get your back up off the wall and strut your funky funky stuff. meanwhile...sorry abou the snap cracke and pop.
Been listening to a lot of mixtapes recently, and this track just gets me every time. Subtle, it isn't, but during an era of cartoon-ish tracks this track just rose above everything. Or maybe that's a load of old nonsense. Whatever the case this is a nosebleed classic!!
After leeching off gabba for god knows how long now, I figured it's about time to give something back. This is a brand new track of mine that was just released and I thought I'd share it with all of you first. Judging by all the house influenced stuff here, I thought this was most appropriate. Full length free downloads available at the band site/blog below. Enjoy!
1991 - Italy. There was once a club, "baia degli angeli", where you could hear this music.
Bit crushed remix, proof that machines are more metal
Ready to Uff? From the same stable as the Sebastian remix, A new feM-C currently working with Mr Oizo
, a vocoder heavy crunk pastiche, and the 7inch also has a Sebastian remix on the flip - buy here!
Maybe this is too obvious – don't kill me – but there are certainly people who haven't yet heard this track (it was barely released as a single in 2004, there's a full-length album coming out soon). Indie rock bores me silly these days, but there's something about this that just works
– maybe the contrast between the pomposity (of the bombastic arrangement, the sentiment, the title) and how muddled it actually is – can anyone say what this song is actually about? Like Plastic Bertrand's "Ça plane pour moi", I don't think it really matters that much.

Kings of convenience isn’t a very apt way to describe Eirik Glambek Boe and Erlend Øye’s working relationship. For the past couple of years the pair have led totally separate lives: Erlend, now based in Berlin, has been travelling the world DJ-ing and producing his electronic solo album, Unrest, while Eirik has remained in their Norwegian home town of Bergen, studying for a psychology diploma. However, they’ve still found time to produce their second album of acoustic delights, Riot On An Empty Street.
I spent my friday night with sleeping pills while listening to kelley polar.
Anyhoo, hope you enjoy this one, I'm listening right now to it while drifting away.
Everyone remeber Slam´s anthem "This World". This is a pretty new remix by Berlin based Wighnomy Bros and Robag Wruhme. This is a pretty minimalistic remix, which means that the boys have stripped the original from everyhting but the beautiful vocals of Tyrone Palmer. This is deep, stripped of minimal and very good. It is hard not to feel chivers when the powerful strings enter the scene. Listen and enjoy!
Looper (or Stuart David from "belle and sebastian") creates some of the nicest and catchiest songs I've heard.
Although the song I'm featuring is some years old I haven't seen any Looper tracks around gabba so I thought I might offer you my favorite track from him. Hope you enjoy it.
PS: At his site, he offers complete mp3 EPs to download (unfortunately, you'll have to sign in).
Very lush, groovy music. I think I'd like to watch the animated legs from the TV show "My Three Sons" and listen to this music with it. From a subsription release from the now-defunkt Canadian Label Piehead Records.
Natural 20 borrows from the past and steals from the future, making him a musical bricoleur that would make Claude Levi-Strauss proud. Taken from the new initiative: www.famousfor15mb.com,

This video is a snippet from one of Jamie Lidell's amazing live sets. This twisted funk is made with little more than a man, a microphone and a sampler – and it’s all done live. Quite a different affair to latest album Multiply, which toes a more of a classic soul/funk line. Both the album and the live stuff are brilliant. More videos and audio at www.jamielidell.com.
In the spirit of celebrating Mr Lidell, here's another treat. The original versionof this track was created obeying Mathew Herbert's (willfully obtuse if you ask me) musical 'dogma', by only using sounds from derived from Danni Sciliano's hand bag. So in keeping with this, Jamie Lidell wrote down each word of the lyrics on seperate peices of paper, put them into said bag and jumbled them up to form new lyrics... Er...? So there you go!
(Link Corrected) What sort of rocket is it exactly? Poppy disco from his 1978 album IV The Golden Touch (a year after he released Supernature). Features squishy balloons, electric guitars, chanting hordes, and an ELO toilet ending.
This is a track from an upcoming Reggae outfit from Ireland called the Kanja Kru.They consist of m.c Sensi m.c Herbsman King Bong and Fat J.This song is a rough demo called 'how dare you slag me' and the amazing lyrics are told from real life experiences being Irish Rastas and the racism & predjudist that exists on the streets of the emerald Isle.The rough recording and lack of mastering add to the songs theme of disorder chaos and political fury.Currently the band are in talks with Morriseys Attack records about a major deal.Great Stuff, great stuff indeed.
Mmm... Man man, well, think about Tom Waits and Major Organ teaming up and doing a soundtrack for a Tim Burton movie. Saloon piano included.
Here’s an unreleased remix of Wakefield’s indie darlings. Rollercoaster Project ditches the guitars in favour of atmospherics for the opening, building into an electro track by the close. As an aside, I can’t recommend the label that this remixer records for, Dreamboat Records
, enough. Lots of free tracks to peruse on their site, should this track be to your taste. Enjoy!!
Continuing the electro feel of my last post, here’s a remix of Zongamin’s recent release on the ever-consistent Ed Bangers label
, by Jacko (anybody know if this is a pseudonym for somebody??) This particular mix relegates the majority of the bongos from the original, to the background and in the process changes the feel of the track entirely.
R&B. Body Kiss, the title alone is almost enough. A slow jam with all the rhythm and vocal ticks inverted and syncopated, thanks Jd
Sounds like an indie band. Like it.
Foundsound Records have been putting out quality minimal techno for quite some time now. The new release from Ben Parris however is a little softer than the other records on the label. However, the clean and neat sound that has been developed within the walls of foundsounds NYC office is still very much there. This release also feature a remix by very talanted canadian artist Magda. Enjoy this track, and if you like it run to your local 12"vinyl store to buy it!
I know this Tejada-track is a bit old but I think it´s one of the best he have ever made. Very minimal, sleek and monotone. The chord that enters the tune after a few minutes is wonderful and geniusly engineered. I think you can file this track under "so stripped down it´s barely there"
Narcotic Neo Pop. I'm sure i'll get banned for this but anyway, to be filed with the Barbie Girl hardcore remix
, all the ingredients are here, ruff neck drums, toy town synth line, over use of Z
and even cApS lOcK .. lighters in the air and singalong.. "I am too high to even care... "
The greatest ode to the moon landing ever recorded.
From the American Song Poem Anthology.
check out the website, its super dupa.
From The Knife's forthcoming album — you probably already either love them or hate them — I think I probably love them and hate them, although I've always been pretty indecisive and non-commital...
UK - 1981. I believe a great track. Very rare.
1998 - Germany. There is a connecction between my previous post and this. It's hard to find but there is.
Early Napoleon III demo. Napoleon III is a local ( to me ) one man band. Deceptively indie-ish, very cool tape-y sounds and nice noises. It is a demo though, so it's unmastered and stuff and stuff. Enjoy.
New Video form vitalic for the song poney part, its tuff!takes a minute to load though.
Another local (to me) one man band with a band kind of setup. Anyhow, recorded in a village hall in scotland, this is soon to be released on the (somewhere) aforementioned Dreamboat Records. Its pretty great, in my opinion.
Swedish Pop princess Robyn alongside Jenny Wilson
, doing a cover of the Saul Williams' song, recorded from a tv show. This is great, very catchy, and I've have been listening to it over and over again the last week - just had to share. Hey, you can watch the video
Jonathan Vance is from New York. This is like a better version of that A Place To Bury Strangers song I posted before.
incredible, bombastic gypsy electric guitar roller coaster ride, reminiscent of the best moments of dog-faced hermans/the ex! some other great tracks by other artists are on the balkan beats site - I recommend "postolar tripper" and "gogol bordello"! You'll never need another cup of coffee again!
in respone to Natural 20 - Similar Parallel posted by nosordo. i'm off my head right now. forgive I.
