Balmorhea

21 Oct

Balmorhea is a  band that is strongly influenced by classical music and post-rock. They play beautiful instrumental  music that can evoke strong emotions. They are not a very popular band, but one that I think everyone should know. I just bought their latest cd Constellations which came out earlier this year. I love everything they do.

N e Tempo

18 Oct

 

Spotted N e Tempo at The Brain Trust’s blog. The Brain Trust is a hip-hop and electronic event production company with ties in Boston and NYC. They have worked with many artists like Major Lazer, KiD CuDi, O.T.T, Talib Kweli, EOTO, Rusko, Telepath, Brothers Past. N e Tempo really stood out to me as a duo that could really tear up the dance floor. Their music runs through the electronic genres covering dub step, breakbeat, house and downtempo. They have opened for big acts in the electronic scene including EOTO, Big Gigantic and Orchard Lounge. I really dig this band so check them out on Facebook and enjoy.

The Orb feat. David Gilmour

12 Oct

The Orb dropped their new album today title Metallic Spheres in collaboration with the great David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. Gilmour is featured at the forefront of the album with his guitar loops and improvisations giving it a very Floydian quality. Gilmour’s melodic and rhythmic guitar is a great addition to the Orb’s electronic back beats. The album is set up on two sides the “Metallic Side” and the “Sphere Side”. Each side is a collection of songs that melt seamlessly into each other. This a very cool album and its awesome to hear that David Gilmour listens to modern electronica music 🙂 Pick up the whole album on iTunes here.

Beats Antique Live

3 Oct

This is a Beats Antique concert that was streamed live over the internet a few weeks ago. I know its long but if you have the time its really worth watching the whole thing. My favorite song would have to be at either 26:00 or 31:00. It gets pretty funny at 44:00 as well 🙂 Their music fuses  underground hip hop, breakbeat brass band, downtempo, glitch and dubstep behind a curtain of middle eastern belly dancing (17:00) flavor. The violin and sitar brings sounds that are rarely heard in their genre. Also below is a couple track off of their new album Blind Threshold which you can pick up here.

Lauren Keys Shpongle Cover

2 Oct

I guess I kinda missed the boat on this being that Lost In Sound posted this on Wednesday but I thought it was so cool that I needed to post it anyway. This is a live piano cover by Lauren Keys of Shpongle’s “Divine Moments of Truth” – performed using a dual layer piano/guitar sample for added dimension. Very cool stuff enjoy!
