So after having my senses turned inside out at Burning Man this year, I have returned with a renewed sense of verve and thought I would try flogging this ailing horse of a blog one more time. Although not all Burning Man related, here are a few tracks that have been spanking my fanny (American usage) over the past couple of months. If you like them, just right click the title to download, not that I would encourage or endorse that type of behavior.
In a vague attempt to wring the last drops of sunshine from what has been an utterly awesome summer, this song just about sums it up. I discovered it just before our epic West Coast roadtrip, and it certainly captures some of those beatific, paint the sky moments.
Starting with a slightly industrial sound that soon gives way to satisfying Daft Punk crunchy bounce-beat. Bonkers subject matter interspersed with the odd chic-a-chic-a-chic-a-chic-ah. Delicious.
Once again, Thee Loving Hand crafts another progressive and indulgent remix, turning Cut Copy’s happy clappy Fleetwood Mac-esque homage and slowly building it into something quite terrifying.
On a par, if not better than the more popular James Blake, I am at a loss why this track wasn’t included on Nicolas Jaar’s debut album Space is Only Noise. One thing is for sure, around the 3 and a half minute mark, it get pretty damn sultry, and makes me think of all sorts of nasty things. Squirrels, watch out (sorry Burning Man reference).
Seeing as I’m off for a stomp (recovering ankle permitting) at Horsemeat Disco this weekend, I though I’d end on a nice little slice of nu-italo disco from one half of Salmon Stereo favourites, Crazy P.
