I have not come across a good new album for a while.
i love buck but i genuinely think this record (it's a collaboration with a belgian producer) is better than any of his straight up solo records.
Titus Andronicus album.
Like their melodies but the lead singer is annoying.
well, your library hasn't got any built to spill? you in reverse, ancient melodies of the future, they got away (a single which is one of my most favourite songs ever) are all on spotify, and very good
'Black Rice', 'Shaking Hand', Upstairs' are a bit more accessible.
'January 8th', 'Flashlights', Lawn Care' are a bit more 'noisy'.
Also, a link to their amazing new track 'Eyesore':
The-Dream and DaM-FunK. Because live is boring once you stop expanding your horizons.
It's not too easy to search
I hope you enjoy it man! It's great stuff, seriously. Just be thankful I didn't recommend you any noise...
I have to blame Starkey for getting me into The-Dream he was bigging up Love Vs. Money the pther year and playing stuff from it in his sets all over the place.
You might like Starkey, he sounds like modern R&B turned up to 11 or more... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffaCiiXCakI / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8039--aCtZo
I loved the support set he played for Flying Lotus in Bristol earlier this year. Remember when he dropped Ludacris was one of those 'oh shit, he didn't, did he?' moments.
Ah, he has stuff on spotify. Hello friday night in listening.
yeah he's always playing stuff like that in his sets but really embeds it deep in the grimy street bass ravy stuff. He's from Phili so he's always been on stuff like The-Dream and T-Pain and all that cool cluby dancy R&B/Rap, plus he's been into grime and dubstep since forever so drops it all in his sets. I mean lots of this stuff gets played by people in teh dubstep scene Ikonika likes to play The-Dream and Loefah dropped Videophone by Beyonce at FWD>> and had to rewind it 4 times haha Fits in perfectly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E38cjvb44RI big bass, insane drum machine workout, sexy vocals.
So I guess you should just listen to James Blake or somthing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQoQirZwxE4
That or Trim: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwrwIJXeEoE or both: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GH5iyLSv4xY
I do like it.
He played lots of Outkast inbetween loads of his own productions when I saw him DJ.
If you dig Onra you might like FaltyDL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5QzQ6lix7Q
He's got loads out, the album Love Is Liabilty and the Bravery EP as well as loads of singles. The ablum and EP are on Sportify I think. He's got a really spooky rolling garage thing going on, kind of like if Burial grew up in New York, lots of hip-hop, funk, soul and house vibes going on but with this atmospheric garage thing all over it.
Shocking lack of LaFaro in your library though.
lift to experience
josephine foster and the supposed
Josephine Foster is very good, she really sounds like Karen Dalton.
Music you have in common includes The Pogues, Two Gallants, Mississippi John Hurt, Tom Waits and The Cast of Cheers.
mariachi el bronx innit, they're like the pogues but pretending to be mexican rather than pretending to be irish. only a monster could listen to that record and not fall in love with it.
