Happy trails PFTB.

Back in the glory days of music television.

Kraut Red Handed



Let's take a psychedelic trip into the ether. I never really liked this planet to begin with. I hope things change while I'm away. For the better, of course.

Neu! - Isi



Neu! - Super

Summertime in the City



OMG. Animal Collective was smart enough to get Dam-Funk to bust out some sexy grooves over their single. Kudos.

Animal Collective - Summertime Clothes (Dam-Funk Remix)

The Look of Love



Sleazy, weird, tripped-out disco. Right up my alley.

Supermax - Love Machine

Jun 17, 2009

Tear it Up



This dude can make one seriously tripped-out, low-motion, piece hip-hop of art.

Onra - Hit the Bong

Jun 15, 2009

To The Max



This song at the right volume and tempo WILL induce bumping and grinding on the dance floor. No doubt.

6th Borough Project - Do it to the Max

Droppin' Poems to Stockholm



Here's a track off of the new Jazzanova album. Just the right groove.

Jazzanova feat. Phonte - So Far From Home

I've Got the Key



Here's a fresh little funk tune from 1980.

Locksmith - Far Beyond

May 28, 2009

Fuckin' Tourists



Not the first Gang of Four track I've put up and it probably won't be the last.

Gang of Four - At Home He's a Tourist

We're Lost in Music



The Revenge. Great, great music.

Here's a little taste.

Sister Sledge - Lost in Music (The Revenge Rework)

Who Needs Morality



Who needs morality?

I don't. Neither does In Flagranti.

Their new album is completely devoid of it.

I hear it's all subjective anyway.

In Flagranti - A Piece of False Morality

Do Dah Do Do



It seems like growing up as a child of gen y gave me the impression that the Rolling Stones were only for hicks and bikers. Turns out whomever was responsible for that happened to be completely wrong.

The Rolling Stones - Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo (Heartbreaker)


The Rolling Stones - Angie


Some hits from Goats Head Soup.

Run



A blast from the past.

Air - Run

Spaceman



I wanted to be a spaceman. That's what I wanted to be.

Harry Nilsson - Spaceman

So Serious



So I just stumbled across this lovely song on one of my favorite blogs.

I don't know where A Mountain of One has been all of my life, but I'm glad they're here now.

A Mountain of One - Can't Be Serious

Leave Your World



Just got back from a jaunt in jolly olde England.

I had never been, so it was nice to take it in.

As I was making the journey in my steel bird far above the Atlantic, I let this track play out a few times.

Soft Rocks - Leave Your World Behind


Off of the second issue of the Milky Disco compilation. Check it out, all of the tracks are MAGIC.

Nightshift



As cheesy as this song may be, it's probably the most fun you'll have all evening.

How pathetic your life must be. =]

Den Haan - Nightshift

Pure Bliss



This one particular track seems to have orchestrated every awesome moment of the last two years of my life.

Partake in the fading sunshine.

Pacific - Sunset Blvd.

Mar 29, 2009

The Night Sky to Infinity



Seems like Connor was able to lasso one little tiny aspect of what it is to be human. A flat-out beautiful song.

I'm under the impression that Digital Ash was a good album. Many would disagree with me about that.

Bright Eyes - Easy/Lucky/Free

Mar 25, 2009

Running Forever



This is one of those songs that makes me feel happy to be alive.

That is all.

Chromatics - Running Up That Hill

The Walrus Meets Acid House



Here is a pretty sweet mix of Paul McCartney with some funky acid house done by the one and only Shep Pettibone.

Put it on and let it ride.


Paul McCartney - Ou Est El Soleil (Shep Pettibone Mix)

Hot on the Heels of Love



Throbbing Gristle is an experimental band from the 70's that I think you all might enjoy.

Here's a little gem off of the album entitled, "20 Jazz Funk Greats."

Let this track suck your brain out of your ears and spit it back into your hands.

Throbbing Gristle - Hot on the Heels of Love

The Future Has Arrived



The Juan Maclean's new album entitled, "The Future Will Come" will be gracing ears in your local dance club anytime now, but until then here are a few tracks to wet the pallet.

The Juan Maclean - Accusations


The Juan Maclean - The Station

Time to Funk it Up



So its been a long while.

I won't pretend I have an excuse. . . because I don't.

Either way.

Let's funk some shit up.

Jamiroquai - Alright


Barry White - Ecstacy When You Lay Next to Me


Get those funk juices flowing.

No Tomorrow



So I was thinking about doing a edit of the David Bowie song, "Fame."

Then I heard this house remix from the 90's floating around and decided that it would be nearly impossible to outdo.

Get down with your early-nineties self.

David Bowie - Fame 90' (House Remix)

Discophile



There are two acts that are around today making honest, authentic, live-band-oriented disco. Escort is one of them. (Faze action is the other, but we'll save them for another time.)

I'm sure there are many more which have slipped under my radar, but until they show up as little blips on my green screen, here are some remixes and a live video by Escort.

Walter Meego - Forever (Escort Remix)


Tracy Thorn - It's All True (Escort's Extended Disco Remix)


I've Got the William's Blood



Grace Jones is great.

The remixes for "William's Blood" are phenomenal.

The Cosmic Jam remix was on of my best of 2008.

Here are the others to keep you movin' through the weekend.

Grace Jones - William's Blood (Aeroplane Remix)

Claudja Barry's, "Sweet Dynamite" was released in 1977 on Salsoul.

Here it is for your listening enjoyment.

Best of 2008 - Part 3

A little late on this one, but perhaps you all will forgive me.

I have narrowed down my top albums of 2008 to just three.

Here they are in no particular order. . . .


1) Hot Chip - Made in the Dark



2) Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours



3) Gang Gang Dance - St. Dymphna (minus the crappy rap song. . .?)



BONUS:

Here is the first track available for download off of my new album, Phantom Rain, Desert Hyms

Small Pyramids - Egyptian Love


Happy 2K9 Y'all.
