there aren’t enough Compilations anymore. Today I am going to change that.
Hopefully this is a beautiful beginning to my ‘Various Artists’ section here.
Oftentimes I see so many wonderful songs, compilations, and albums; I do not
know where to begin. As a way of bringing together all these wonderful odds and
ends, I present the first (of perhaps many) Various Artists. Enjoy!
Sportag did a lot this year on Cascine, a new jet-set label. Mostly they were
absolutely plush sounding remixes, the kinds of remixes that you cherish.
Memorable remixes are a rare breed indeed, but somehow Jensen managed to pull
it off in 2011. Actually next year there will be a new album out for them.
Listen to the teaser here. Or just listen to one of their smooth (I mean a sort
of smooth beyond all human comprehension) remixes. I’m a sloth. I comprehend
the Occupy Wall Street movement. They are relatively cheap. Even as the Occupy
movement is physically removed, from occupying actual land, I feel they shall
continue to spread the good word of reducing income inequality, etc. Normally I
do not talk about politics on here, it is rather rare. Yet the bands on this
shindig are worth the $5, and the movement is still strong. Help out some good
bands with good hearts.
out of the Christmas spirit is Vacation. I’ve heard Vacation before, doing
their creepy folk thing, generally writing some beautifully bleak songs. Now
they’ve decided to take a grimier, more electronic approach to their sound for ‘Broken Bones‘.
Their odd voices are still there. Instead of guitars they have electrical
static. It is not Christmas-friendly unless you happen to have extremely disturbing
Christmases. Man, it is a seriously creepy, creepy song, meant for nightmares.
Glad this came out around Christmas, right when I needed it.
Artists collection. I shall have more. Since many of these are seasonally
based, I’d feel bad to let them linger. Besides, shortly I will have extremely
limited (read: no) internet access, and to let these simply go ignored would be
unfair. Hope you enjoy all these wonderful tunes!
