Although Causers of This is a great album (Lissoms being probably my favorite by him), lately I’ve been listening to his demos non-stop. I’m starting to think that his demos are soooo much better. His album, to me, sounds a bit over-produced whereas the demos are so much more raw. Plus, on his demos you have all of his hit songs from Causers (Talamak, Blessa, Freak Love, etc). On top of that you get to see a whole different side of Chaz; feel-good surf-rock to bright up your day.
Been digging minimal all day, because I’m in a terrible fucking mood. I forgot how stellar of an album From Here We Go To Sublime is. Over the Ice is incredibly hypnotic. I love minimal such as this that is so simplistic yet so catchy and addicting at the same time.
Been digging a lot of Foals lately. I used to listen to Antidotes religiously. The new album, on the other hand, I sort of neglected to listen to because I wasn’t too fond of the single. Last week, however, I heard Total Life Forever on Sirius XMU and fell in love with it. Afterwards I ended up listening to the full album, and although it is nowhere near the same as their previous release, it’s still pretty damn good.
This is a pretty delicious remix by Starkey of another sweet tune on the album.
It’s hard to find a good post-rock band, at least, in my opinion. El Ten Eleven is one of those post-rock bands, where you hear them and think “Wow, post-rock can be good”. Every Direction Is North is full of energy. Energy that will make you want to get up and dance or energy that will take you over completely and make you think about what life has to offer.
This really does bring back good memories. I’m glad shuffle has reminded me that this album exists. =]
This guy is definitely one of my favorites. Every remix I’ve heard from him, is great. Royksopp, NightWaves, Sigur Ros, and who can forget the remix of Signs by Bloc Party (which is my favorite - no competition)? This is on par with the Bloc Party remix, fersure.
Old, but very good. It came up on shuffle and reminded me how good the video is. I can watch the video over and over and still feel the same way about it. It takes away from your own imagination, but maybe this song was meant to feel this way?
