I have been irregular in my posting, and I apologize. Getting the new EP all wrapped up is proving to be tedious business. I am able to find time to find some new music here and there though, so here are a few things I’m listening to.
First, I want to start off with this Felix Cartal track, because I feel his material has really declined in the past couple years, but this song stands out on his new album as quite above the tracks alongside it.
Felix Cartal – Domo
It’s loud, crazy, has a weird melodic buildup and then it gets you with a drop thats all in the mids. Good stuff, a real floor burner.
Next is a song that sound like a song I put in a mix a couple months ago, but alas, it is not that song…
Jay Lumen – Drop That
This is one of those songs that gets played ‘somewhere in the middle’ of a DJ set. It doesn’t get up in your face and bend you to its will, but subtly suggests that, maybe you two start a dialogue and see where it goes. (It usually goes to dancing)
My last recommendation for the week rounds out the selections quite nicely, I think. This is why I chose to put it last.
Andhim – Walkmen
This shit is OUTRAGEOUSLY CHILL. Seriously. That is probably how you will describe it to someone after you listen to it. It is crunchy, and possessive of a dangerously catchy groove. I don’t think anyone could be serious while listening to this song.
So listen to those and I’ll tell you to listen to something else next week.
