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.

Fontanelle

11 Oct

Fontanelle is an instrumental post rock jazz funk electonica band. There last album, Style Drift was released in 2002. This band sounds warm and ambient with influences of Herbie Hancock’s electric piano mixed with hallucinatory and hypnotic appeals. It kinda reminds me of an elctronic spacey Bitches Brew.

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!

Artist Spotlight: Ween

30 Sep

Ween is a unique one of a kind band. This well respected duo consists of Gene and Dean Ween who consistently play new and different experimental psychedelic music. They have a huge underground fanbase but are mostly unknown to the majority. Just so you can get an idea of how crazy these guys are,  supposedly on the album The Pod the contraption on the album cover is a bong-like device with scotchguard used to propel marijuana by use of nitrous oxide , which was said to leave the user intoxicated for days. No one knows if they actually made this device and used it, but it just shows you how crazy these guys are. So CHECK OUT THEIR MUSIC

MGMT Remixed, Reworked, and Mashed-Up

28 Sep

People seem to love to remix, rework, and mash-up MGMT songs (including MGMT themselves). So here’s just a few random MGMT remixes just because (no they aren’t new). The first is a rework of Electric feel done by MGMT themselves and its really sweet. I think it’s better produced and gives the song less of a messy sound. I really recommended checking that one out. The second is the Electric Feel Justice Remix. Then comes the DJ STHLM remix of kids (which is awesome). Fourth is the Wait What Nas vs. MGMT Justice Remix of Electric Feel mash-up (confusing right?) Lastly comes the famous Xaphoon Jones MGMT v Bob Marley mash-up which I’m pretty sure we already posted once, but whatever, it’s worth another post. That’s all I have to offer off of Oracular Spectacular. Then off of their latest album, Congratulations, here’s It’s Working Air Remix and a Someone’s Missing and Weezy mash-up. There are plenty more of them I’m sure, but I thought I’d share some cool ones. Check them out.

DJ Morale

19 Sep

This guy is truly a sick DJ. His tracks cover a wide variety of genres from dubstep to glitch to electro to hip-hop to party classics. His music really speaks for itself. Hopefully I will be seeing him live at Sullivan Hall in NYC on September 25th, its going to be out of control. This is a live set he played, its really awesome. Enjoy!
