My friends’ band is playing a show with Mayday Parade later this week. I am not going because I am in a different city but still, if this is your sort of thing you should check them out: http://www.myspace.com/ekg
Owen Pallet: “Lewis Takes His Shirt Off”(Dan Deacon Remix)
I be honest, not nearly as as good the orignal, but does exactly what a remix should. Just takes a different approach source material but doesn’t abandon it. I read a review for Dan Deacon’s last album that simply read, “Dan Deacon: Bromst Music For 18 Cartoon Musicians.” (Referring to Steve Reich’s “Music for 18 Musicians”)If you don’t get the reference I am not really going to try and explain it (though I think you should look give Steve Reich listen), but when I listened it became very clear how good of a review that was.
to be even more honest, I have been wanting post the Reich/Deacon thing for a while, and this just seemed like the best time.
LCD Soundsystem - Daft Punk Is Playing at My House
With plenty of posts floating around the tumblrsphere with tracks from the new LCD Soundsystem, I figured I’d post vintage James Murphy instead.
I remember when this song was like “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.”
“Lol, this dude is talking about Daft Punk playing a show at his house…”
I remember seeing the video for this in middle school on a public access tv show at 2 in morning. I looked them up on this terrible site called “artist direct” which had a similar artist category. I ended up not getting into them at the time, but other bands that I saw on the show, like “The Stills” I listened to for a while, but kinda grew out of it. I just recently started listening to “Sound of Silver” and love it. For me LCD Soundsystem was kinda like Neil Young in a really weird way: I know its good, I’m just not at a point where I really appreciate it, but I know I will someday. I’m still not really there with Neil Young.
