Tie Your Shoelaces to the Moon

They try to come off insane and completely absurd, but Gang Gang Dance compiled a few pleasantly melodic gems on their new album, "Saint Dymphna." If you know whats good for you, you'll grab a copy. It's going to be on my top ten albums of 2008 which should be popping up quite soon.

Here are some tracks to keep you occupied.

Gang Gang Dance - House Jam

Gang Gang Dance - Dust

Show Your Roots: Volume IV

So, as you may have noticed, the third installment of Show Your Roots was taken down. I suppose out of all the music I have posted on here over the last year or so, Kraftwerk is probably the most worthy of being copyright protected.

Oh well.

This week I'm going to take you to a magical place where roles have been reversed and geeky college dudes with synthesizers reign supreme. "Does this place actually exist?" you ask. My only reply is "Are We Not Men?"


Devo - That's Good

Devo - Beautiful World

Wise words from guys wearing trash bag suits and lamp shades on their heads.

Sugar Cane Shards In My Mouth

Italians, in fact, do it better. Glass Candy is the living proof of this statement. Atmospheric disco blips and crispy synthetic bass lines leave a pleasant taste in my mouth. That coupled with the hypnotizing siren song of the drop dead sexy Ida No makes them something to write home about. Though this album's about two years old now, I still felt the need to share some with you today.

Glass Candy - Miss Broadway (Remix)

Glass Candy - Candy Castle

Acid Flashback: Part 1

BTW, Which one's Pink?

Pink Floyd - If

This concludes the first edition of my new series of posts involving vintage drug-influenced gems.

In the Club

I love me some D.F.A. . . Jacques Renault and Marcos Cabral have released their new single, "Brooklyn Club Jam" under the name Runaway. This is by far the best track they have released and their first out on the infamous disco distributor. Here are a few different cuts for you to enjoy.

Runaway - Brooklyn Club Jam (Original Version)

Runaway - Brooklyn Club Jam (L.S.B. Remix)

Runaway - Brooklyn Club Jam (Brennan Green's Mix)

French Starship

Some relatively unknown electronic artist from France named Max Berlin has only released a few tracks in his career. Take a deep breath and float along with the magic and wonder that is Elle et Moi.

Max Berlin - Elle et Moi

and the remix by one of my favorite guys out there. . . .

Max Berlin - Elle et Moi (Joakim Remix)

That's all for today.

What's the Point?

You may or may not have seen Harry Nilsson's philosophical, fantastical cartoon, The Point, which debuted on American television in 1971. With Ringo Starr narrating, it was an instant hit among children from that era (or so I hear).

The protagonist, Oblio, a small child is born into a village where everything and everyone has a point. Pointed heads, pointed buildings, pointed trees, pointed animals etc... So, oddly enough, Oblio is born without a point on his head and in order to fit into his society he begins wearing a pointed hat.

Eventually the evil count of the village banishes him due to his apparent lack of pointedness. He departs on his 'trip' into the pointless forest where he learns that its okay not to have a point and returns to the village with a valuable lesson. . .yada yada.

Here's a little peek into his magical trip in the forest.

Fittingly, the video doesn't really seem to have a point.

This post, however, does.

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across the Gomma label who facilitates such radical artists as Munk and Golden Bug. While exploring their somewhat extensive catalog I found an artist named Oblio (happens to be half of In Flagranti) who rekindled my interest in dreamy 70's'esque electronic as well as the Harry Nilsson film.

Here are a few tracks to ride until the next 'Show Your Roots' post slated for later tonight.

Oblio - Escape

Oblio - The Crux of the Matter

Oblio - A Radical Change in Direction

The video for, "The Crux of the Matter" bares a striking resemblence to the animation in the point. Coincidince. . .I think not.

Show Your Roots: Volume II

So it should be no surprise to anyone that one of the innovators of electronic disco was gay. Shocked?! Me either. His name is Patrick Cowley. He spent his younger years in New York but then moved to the San Francisco/Bay Area where he built his career. Sometime after he moved there, he teamed up with Disco/Soul singer Sylvester James or "The Queen of Disco." The results were phenomenal. Enjoy!

Volume 2: Patrick Cowley

Patrick Cowley - Megatron Man

Patrick Cowley - Mind Warp

Show Your Roots: Volume I

There was a day when electronic dance music didn't exist. Yes. . . . Really. There were a few pioneers that paved the road for the electronic artists of the future to follow. Who were these visionaries you ask? Well. . . .

Volume 1: Giorgio Moroder

Giorgio Moroder - The Chase

Giorgio Mordoer - I Wanna Funk With You Tonight

A little video to acquaint you.

I find it kinda weird that these songs sound like they could have come out a week ago. Both were released in the 70's, but many of the producers out today follow the same mold this guy and his contemporaries established decades ago. I guess the same holds true for punk, metal, pop and other genres as well. In a way it diminishes the notion of tapping into a futuristic genre. Food for thought. . . . Or not.

Chill on This

Here are some laid back tracks to kick back and chill to.

A member of my favorite one of my favorite bands, Grizzly Bear.

Fleet Foxes are so hot right now. Even saw them in the Starbucks.

An oldschool jam from way back when.
The Smashing Pumpkins - We Only Come Out at Night

Space Disco is Sooo Last Week

Since Hipster Runoff has been making frequent references to space disco, I felt it was about time to start searching for a new musical bandwagon to jump onto. I didn't have to do much searching. In fact it found me. NuJazz. I know this sounds like stuff you hated from the mid-nineties, but guess what. . .it's back. Welcome to 2k9.

Here's some sweet glitchy jazz stuff from Denmark.

Badun - Myg

Badun - Pulsen

Have a smooth, relaxing night.

Sacred Insects of the Dance Floor

Hailing from the romantic capital of the world we have some outrageously fun "robotic booty funk" made by an insect composed of one of the most precious metals in the world. On a side note, I enjoy this album more than any other electronic album I've heard in a very long time. Without further ado. . .

Golden Bug - Rocket City


For the remix of this track by one of the best in the biz, In Flagranti, click here.
(Not hosted due to RCRDLBL's Nazism.)

Please pay some respect to this amazing slice of disco madness here.

Nov 2, 2008


Sometimes I feel emotion. Not too often, but it does happen occasionally. Butterflies. Flowers. Little candies with kute phrases. Fuzzy feelings in my stomach. Emotion. This first track pretty much sums it up. The second one isn't in English but I'm pretty sure it's about love. Who knows about the third. Anyhow. Enjoy.

Jon Brion and Deanna Storey - Little Person

Congregacion - Arrebol

Gerard Manset - Ils


Oct 27, 2008

Faze ! ! !

Ah well.

Faze Action - Moving Cities

Metronomy - Heartbreaker (Faze Action)

While we're at it, here's another sweet remix by this odd Frenchman.

Simian Mobile Disco - Hustler (Joakim Remix)

Oct 21, 2008

Animal Cruelty

A few posts back I tossed up some tracks from the Emperor Machine. On my binge to discover more of his ridiculously awesome music I found that the genius behind the magic(James Dyer) is also partially responsible for some of the best remixes of the cosmic disco scene.

Midfield General - Disco Sirens (Chicken Lips Malfunction)

Sebastien Tellier - Broadway (Chicken Lips Remix)

Wolfmother - Love Train (Chicken Lips Remix)

Put on Your Dancin' Pants

Stonesthrow's James Pants is doing what some would categorize as sarcastic disco. I would categorize him as radically awesome. Here are a few tracks off his new his album, "Welcome."

James Pants - We're Through

James Pants - Dragonslayer

James Pants - Cosmic Rapp


Here we have his video for, "We're Through." One sweet low-budget video.

Funk and Butter

So I have two different types of disco tracks to lay on you today.

The first track is a slice of some funky-ass, hip-gyrating, make-ya-sweat disco.
The second is lower-tempo, space-cruisin', smooth-like-butter disco.

Max Essa - Back to The Beach

Peace, Love and Harmony
-Light Pollution

The Resurrection

I've been dropping the ball lately. No doubt it's been keeping people up at night. . . .

So if you haven't heard of Lovelock yet then you're not cool and we can't be friends. Think of the sweetest disco track and the trippiest Floyd jam making sweet love together. You guessed it. Lovelock. What I love about them is how they manage to sneak the word love into almost every song title. Props to XXjfg.

Lovelock - Dont Turn Away (From My Love)
(Cosmic Disco)

Lovelock - Love Reaction
(Cosmic Disco)

Next up is the single off of the new album by two of my favorite music makers.

Brian Eno & David Byrne - Strange Overtones
(Soul Pop)

Lastly we have some tracks that have been around for a bit by one of the founders of this resurgence of disco music.

Prins Thomas - Goettsching

(NuDisco/Easy Listening)

Blackbelt Anderson - Sirup (Prins Thomas Diskomiks)
(NuDisco/Easy Listening)

Let the Robots Speak!

Today's post is dedicated to those depressed robots who are just looking for a means to an end. They choose to let out their sorrow over funky electro beats which induce all kinds of disco dancing. Without further ado. . .LET THE ROBOTS SPEAK!!

Crazy Gang - Every Sunday

The Hasbeens - Make the World Go Away

DMX Crew - The Glass Room

Aug 2, 2008

A Little of This/ A Little of That

If you like Junior Boys as much as I do, you'll be all over these two tracks.
Morgan Geist from Metro Area featuring Adam Greenspan of Junior Boys.

Morgan Geist - Most of All

Morgan Geist - The Shore

Now for a metal-head turned trippy, beat-laden melody-maker. Off of the Split with Eluvium who is great as well.

Jesu - Farewell

Let's go old school for a moment, shall we?

Gang of Four - Not Great Men
(Indie Rock/Punk Rock/Dance)

Gang of Four - Damaged Goods
(Indie Rock/Punk Rock/Dance)

Last but not least a few selections from the soundtrack to Donnie Darko. Micheal Andrews did an amazing job scoring this film and with all of the attention the film got, I'm not sure he gets the notoriety he deserved for it.

Micheal Andrews - Time Travel (Donnie Darko Soundtrack)

Michael Andrews - Waltz in the 4th Dimension (Donnie Darko Soundtrack)

So get into the lotus position and take a deep breath.

Brian Eno - A Clearing

Brian Eno - Music for Airports - 1/2

Album Leaf - Window

Efterklang - Hands Playing Butterfly

This last track isn't exactly ambient, but it certainly helps put me in the mood. And in lieu of the end of Bright Eyes and the beginning of Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, here's what I believe to be the best song he had written under his original moniker. . . . .

Bright Eyes - Lime Tree

Happy Floating!



Conor Oberst - Lenders in the Temple

Double Bonus:

Conor Oberst - S/T

Random Retro Tuesday

Gonna try something new here today.

Step into the time portal with me. . .

I know I'm a little late on this one, but Arthur Russell = my kinda dude. Twisted genius who was eons before his time and was never really appreciated. He was an amazing cellist and composer, but here are some tracks from his dance era.

Arthur Russell - I Like You!

Arthur Russell - That's Us/Wild Combination

Next up is some good cheesy dance music by the infamous Jeff Lynn and his Electric Light Orchestra.
These are a couple of their lesser known hits that have a special place in my ticker.

Electric Light Orchestra - Twilight

Electric Light Orchestra - Last Train to London

You may have heard of this last band. Twisted genius status- the sequel. David Byrne and the aforementioned Mr. Russell made some rad tunes together.

Talking Heads - I Zimbra

Talking Heads - Road to Nowhere

Bonus (as if it were necessary):

Talking Heads - Once in a Lifetime

Jun 18, 2008
