Friday Five Favs

FRIDAY FIVE FAVS! FRIDAY FIVE FAVS! It’s finally AUTUMN! 

1. St. Vincent - Northern Lights (Her new album is as good as RADIOHEAD*)

2. RADIOHEAD - Everything In Its Right Place (because everything is not in its right place)

3. Chromeo - Hot Mess (DJ Edjotronic Remix 1)

4. Funkagenda - Budgie (Original Club Mix)

5. DJ Mehdi - Tunisia Bambaata (RIP Mehdi, this was my fav track of his to play at KGTD)

*Seriously though, St. Vincent is the only female artist I would say is as good as Radiohead. Strange Mercy is the most terrifying album I’ve listened to in awhile and I mean that in the best possible way. The whole thing gives me chills and makes me feel like I’m careening towards a grand disaster. My postmodern classically trained musician brain loves the extended chromatic harmonies and push towards slight atonality. The chord progressions and timbres she uses in her compositions are completely studied. Her themes are melancholy and morose without sounding trite or angsty. It’s music for musicians.

TOMORROW NIGHT: I’M AT SWEET UPS FOR SOME 80s/90s/Disco/Funk! There is also a Bass/Moombah/Dub party in the basement so it’s going to be CRAZY!

ST VINCENT'S STRANGE MERCY IS TERRIFYING.

Guys, this album has so much math, mess and brilliance that I’m almost going to put away my keyboards and stop making music. It’s that good. Give it a listen and buy it on Vinyl.

Myself and the Gun (All Vocal Version) by Dani DeLuna

Myself and the Gun feat. Seth Persons (All Vocal Version).

So, I’ve been mixing the vocals for Myself and the Gun over the past couple of days and really like the way the song sounds with just the vocals (so many vocals) and the rhythm section. I will probably do a similar version as a B-Side or remix of the final track.

VOCALS!
