I've been following this Danish octet since I first heard their debut album two years ago and I'm finding their third album, Samme stof som stof
, their most focused and eclectic effort yet, they're still not quite there but they've proved once again they still have many tricks under their sleeves.
If you really must know before you listen, they sound like Bjork collaborating with Dirty Three.
9 Lazy 9 is an acid jazz/downtempo group on the Ninja Tune label. Operating out of Italy in 1992, they soon gained respect for their first album Paradise bl0wn. Their sound, distinctively more sun than North Sea, is a smoky Mediterranean mix of vines and good times.
R.I.P Big Proof
- never realy established himself solo, finding it hard to break away from the shadow of D-12 and Eminem but the boy had talent - destined to be known as the second best MC in D12
Dev/Null is one of the best breakcore artists.
The soundtrack for the voluntary human extinction movement.
Where's the love people? In the spirit of universal harmony, here's the collaborative work of two artists each hailing from opposite sides of the Atlantic.Freakin'
is a little acid house gem. Dirty bassline and the cleanest 808 claps ever. Dancefloor destruction is the result.
While the battles rage across the Atlantic (which I'm sure I'm partly responsible for given my American IP address and my gabba elders-deemed 'rubbish' taste) I'll throw another Australian tune in for evisceration. This is a remix by TV Rock, who I really like - again a guilty pleasure. Very Neptunesy/Nelle Hooper circa Hella Good, but great fun and moves a floor (especially the bits around the vox). I'm a sucker for analog synth sounds/lines, and this has 'em.
An acoustic song by a band not generally known for acoustic. I enjoy listening to this song, because it is easy to listen to, and fits many moods.
A side project by Leftover Crack frontman Stza. Some if not all is done on a music computer program similar to fruity loops I'm assuming. A very big change from the Squat Punk-Ska bands before this.
A fun, wacky ska band from New York City, anti-american band full of the homeless, the homefilled, and the homewrecking. 31 members officially, hundreds unofficially. They have performed with Leftover Crack and the Crack Rock Steady 7, they appear on the album f**k World Trade by Leftover Crack, and frequently tour the New York and Southeastern Canada area.

So you thougt that us swedes had moved on from the suicidal days of Ingemar Bergman, you thought that the fact that 60% of all internet traffic in Sweden is file sharing has made a bit less prone to kill ourselves? Well you thougt wrong, nowadays we still want to kill ourselves, but we want to do it to a funky electornic beat inspired by bailefunk an booty bass. Thats right, the swedish hiphop/electo/drug-madness group Las Palmas has made the most Swedish song since Ulf Lundells massive hit "Öppna Landskap". This banger is all about taking your own life, feeling shitty, cold weather and dark winters you dont know if you want to shake your ass or hang your self when you listen to it. As a swede it is pure bliss!
Following up the theme of swedish beatbased music with a tendency to depression, i found it suitable to post this Organism 12 & T.R track. On a banging beat they rap about beeing dirt poor, not having money enough to pay your rent and beeing a not so sucessfull rapper. The orignal track by swedish rapper petter is all about bling, rims and v-power gasoline, living in sweden such themes seems pretty far fetched for your average norse-man... Anywas this is another great non-american track so dl and enjoy!
Relentlessly jagged German electro with the kind of buzzing synths I thought only Benny Benassi could manage...
A lot of people know about the Streets. Less people have heard of the EP All Got Our Runnins
(Most people know Original Pirate Material, and A Grand Don't Come For Free, and I guess now the new one that's out in a couple of days). Streets Score is a song from this EP. The lyrics of the original are pretty cheesy, but luckly the instrumental works pretty well on its own and is also included on the EP. The new Streets album isn't great, so here's an older one I like better.
Maybe a demo from what I think is a band out of nyc/brooklyn. I wish I knew more, but not alot of available info. Its kinda ruff and short but I really like the disparate feel of this track, its timing seems a little off and strange.
MTO stands for 'Made To Order' and is a remix by Mike Wilson of elements from Technique. It's on the B side of Run2 from '89. The opening 1 and a half minutes are fantastic and I've loved this track since i was a kid. Sorry about the run on into the following mix on the 12. Very shoddy.
Coldcut, a prodominant DJ on the Ninja Tune label teams up with acclaimed hip hop artist Roots Manuva.
i like the harpsichord. what catches me in this song is the 3/4 time, i dont know why, i just enjoy tapping my foot to it. the song is from the Snatch: Stealin' Stones & Breakin' Bones sountrack. an overall good snog in my opinion.
Istrumental surf rock makes a trip to the east coast. But this surf rock isn't surf rock like dick dale.
New synth-heavy hip-hop from one of the more interesting electronic producers around. MF Doom is nothing if not prolific which means some of his projects hit harder than others. I loved his King Ghidorah and Madvillain output much more than Dangerdoom for instance, but this track sees him in pretty much top form i think. Apologies for the U.S. nature of this post, but both artists are well travelled so maybe that counts in their favour?
eliw post about "golden brown" reminded me of this song. One of the better uses of harpsichord I've heard in a song (probably golden brown gets the first place).
The faux art cover for the album is great too.
Anyone care to recommend more songs with good use of harpsichords, please?
Well after two harpsichord posts here's my favourite track to feature the underappreciated instrument. Eddie Warner is a master of percussion, and this faintly melancholic funk piece has killer breaks to spare.
Here's another good one from the Snatch soundtrack. No harpsichord though... Sorry guys.
New american rock band - sounds a bit like dismemberment plan if they were more dance rock. i was skeptical at first but now i'm into this song
Non-US content coming from a local band. Very difficult for me to describe in terms of genre/comparison, but uplifting with a strong finish. I hope you'll enjoy this, and if you do, you can listen to the entire EP at the link given below, and there are additional tracks online at their myspace account at http://www.myspace.com/ffstbh.
Canada's own Venetian snares.
Made this one myself. I figure with all the chaos around here, this is as good a time as any to post it.
This is a lo-fi reworking of an old Leonard Cohen classic, sung and produced by a Brisbane based artist in Australia. It's a little sketchy but quite interesting I think.
I found this via a myspace 'friend' (if you can call them that) - an LA/Chicago DJ called The Nurse. It's a remix of SandtheB's, but I don't know who did it... but it's rather fun. The URL is for The Nurse, just to give her some love. [EDIT: TAKEN DOWN... sorry, out of bandwidth.]
I think this is a cracking reggae tune. I don't know much about Max Romeo and how well known he may or may not be, but I'm guessing more people will recognise this as the song that provided the samples for a certain Prodigy track.
(Put on Valley Girl voice) "Creamer and K are, like, sooooo 2003", but I always liked this remix they did of Yoko Ono. I have no idea what micro genre this fits into, but it's kind of housey, mellow and good late night driving music.
the animal collective is probably the nuttiest band I have ever seen live. This isn't because of gimmicky showstyle in the way of Kiss or Gwar, but the band nonetheless exibits an unusual presence which as the name suggests has the capacity to sound quite ferrel.
Si Begg is something of an evil genius, a lot of his stuff would work fantastically on the dance floor but is f**ked up enough to keep you interested and wondering what the hell he is doing. Not sure how old this one is, I was going to post the B-side to his newest, "Revelation", which is similar but longer and a bit less choppy and consequentially maybe less interesting. It's breakbeat, but it's done with enough craziness to really stand out.
The harpsichord songs earlier made me think of this soundtrack, produced in 1973 by Alain Goraguer, who arranged the strings for all of Serge Gainsbourg's early work. I'm not sure if they're using a harpsichord or a clavinet but the effect is super creepy. The song also features some breathy female vox, wah-wah guitar and lush strings. It might get you a little hot under the collar.
Sorry this took so long to get posted... was in the hole on the points due to a divisive posting (I still think it was a worthy song, but whatever). Anyhow, sneak preview from the upcoming Junior Boys album... not a single, but a song that might be familiar to those who saw them on tour last year. Hope you enjoy.Still think about you all the time, Nick. R.I.P.
This will be too fey for JK, and I couldn't get into it for ages either. The string arranger for Arcade Fire and some other Canadians, Owen Pallett's solo project has been noted for his live performances, wherein he plays the violin into a sampler controlled by foot pedals, which then loops back one or more of the previously played musical phrases as he plays additional parts simultaneously. He has also performed with more traditional string quartets as backing musicians. Playing the Luminaire on 10th May. Before you criticise the dry blurb JK, I copied and pasted most of it from Wikipedia.
Maximum Joy was one of the Great underground """""""""JAZZ""""""""""""""""bands of 81. Their first song I heard was STRETCH, after Pigbag, but more funky to our ears"! Nr. 1 + 1 + 1+ 1 +1 still is Nr. 1
There will be more of these, but don't hold your breath, it may take a while.... if you look on ebay, they have nothing to do with FGTH (Frankie goes to Hollywood that is to yes, more you) and not the Maximum Joy Recording Studios (very loud). I did not find commercial links to THE Maximum Joy, but you will be better!

but answers may take a while
In 1981 we did not know about MARTIN, but you do now!!!
One of the fantastic and unheard of fables of real early 80s underground!
Califorina really isn't America, And you gotta support the Local. Here's a 2 min. window into the stoned out mind of Madlib. KEEPING IT NEW ON GABBA this off his NEW LP Madlib - Beat Konducta Volumes 1-2: Movie Scenes. It is very simlar to j dilla's Donuts http://www.stonesthrow.com/records/sth2126.html
also very good Stones Throw is also doing a podcast now so if you like what they do check it out http://www.stonesthrow.com/jukebox/
Excellent dance-hall reworking of Pharrell's solo track with new vocals from Jamaica's Mr Vegas. London-based duo A. Brucker & Sinden have been producing some great tracks and remixes over the last year or so for artists like Lady Sovereign, Annie, M.I.A. and Mary J Blige amongst others.
It's not American. It's not exactly new or undiscovered, and it's terribly 'of the moment', but it's a load of fun.
EDIT: Had to change the link. You can stream this song and others off his myspace page.More info here: http://www.paulepworth.com/
happy skacore day, everyone.
