ripped off from dailybeatz (a nice lil' music blog)

Electropop, somewhat dark mysterious synthetic drums contrasted with spiritual vocals.  Yall remember her bein remixed by Delorean?  Reminds me of a more conventional (kinda?) form of IAMAMIWHOAMI, however distinct. That's a good thing because ibid is not enough to hold me over. She leaves me wanting more, and here it is, undoubtedly 'adding value' to the genre. All the makings for a great remix. Well, now more than 50% of her debut Ring is on the electric web of tubes. Let's just hope the powers that be think of me as some kind of 'beta tester' and myself/yall as 'focus group data' that shows Mirrorage should be the next single released.

Teen Daze

ripped off from Wonderbeard's tumblr (Teen Daze is one of their artists)

This is what I call chillwave get's back to it's 'roots'.  Blissed out synths and ecstatic femme vocal loops all set to a chilled uptempo backbeat we can 'vibe out' to.  This track comes to us from the White Guys With Beards & Friends Vol. 3 mixtape which contains other good artists including Closed Cassette, Blackbird Blackbird, and others I have yet to blog about.  This was 6 days ago, and not one mp3 post shows up in an search.  Where was the 'blogosphere'?

ripped off from Non Records the label that also brought us Palmbomen

So excited about this yall!  Hard electro/electro house/whatever straight out of Amsterdam.  You know that place with the hash bars?  Even better, they appear to be a brand new label, with their first EP, "V", in Jan?  That had only 4 artists at the time of the Palmbomen release?  Described by the label as "tube-heated beats", "disturbed synthesizers", and "hard-hitting beats".  Finally some REAL after-after party music!

Twin Sister - New Single!

<a href="">Meet the Frownies by Weathervane Music</a>

The latest from the NY dream/psych-pop outfit Twin Sister.  At first this darker track starts off seemingly innocuous track but takes some unexpected turns-- otherwise I wouldn't be posting it.  Good but different.  I haven't yet/not sure if I will fall in love the way I did with "Lady Daydream".  Ok, I admit it.  I am selling out today.  I am posting some well-known bloggable music.  I am planting my flag on the ground [via the homesteaders act].  It's been a long fuckin 2 days without home internet access.  I was sitting in my folding chair by the front door of my apartments leasing office till 5:30 AM 'last night' for WiFi.  My dream of having an average of 5 new songs per new entry every 5 days, during the 'launch' of this blog, seems to be going to shit.

Les Sins: Toro y Moi's other project

ripped off from

As yall probably alraedy know Toro y Moi makes chillwave, electropop, even some "indie rock".  Well Les Sins is his 'nu-disco', deep house Mr. Hyde...I've been a fan since "Lina".  Occasionally I would find myself wondering, when is "Les Sins" gonna release another track?  Thinking that he was someone other than Toro, on account of that really black dude in the main pic.  Anyway, that day is nearing.  The new track "Youth Gone" will be released on a 12" split, Nov. 9 2010 (they say).

Mickey Mickey Rourke

Sometimes abbr as MMR.  Did you know, another common acronym of MMR is Measles Mumps Rubella?  This "chilldaze" track features crashing waves and ethereal synths with echoing vocals.  Dreamy and perfect to get danked to.  Off MMR's latest EP Inner Gazing.  The whole thing is magical and available for free download at the bandcamp.

Okinawa Lifestyle

This track is hard electro with chopped samplin, sharp drums and syncopating cymbals that oscillates from booty-shakin to swayin.  But they show range all the way down to the chill end of the spectrum.

Now, Now Every Children

ripped off from Now, Now Every Children account.  it's [pic] very...'Michel Gondry'

This song blends elements of industrial, psychadelic synths, classical violin, and hauntingly beautiful vocals.

Now, Now Every Children - Jesus Camp by brostradamus


A dreampoppy, chillgazy tune with poignant piano riffs and lo-fi vocals.  Daniel Radall is from Guadalajara, Mexico and makes his music by 'combing old disco sounds with thermal properties of magnetic media.  This is the 'first EP'.  Expect good things to come. (Click "Buy" to download [free if you wish])

Keep Shelly in Athens

ripped off from Keep Shelly in Athens account

Not quite chillgaze, not quite electronic.  Tropical electronic.  So you're wearing a guayabara drinkin Pina Coladas instead of boardshorts with Coronas, while you listen.

BROTHERTIGER - You're Afraid from Kevan Giffen on Vimeo.

Of all the posts today, this one has me the most excited.  Another single released from chillwaver/gazer Brothertiger, and the mp3 has only been downloadable since.  The thing I like is the way he blends different paradigms of electro, in this case space-aged reverbing synths and ecstatic technoish crescendos.  Did yall know this aint on the hype m's yet?

This post writes itself.  For an added bonus, queue this up right after Depatterning - Uranium City, SK

Blackbird Blackbird

ripped off from

'Are they dream or psych-pop?'  I'm asking myself this question a lot lately.  Anyways, they made a debut EP with Arcade Sound Ltd (Memoryhouse, Million Young, Teen Daze)...or are they still making it?  I don't know.  So confused.  The internet has totally blurred the lines between existing electronically or physically.  I just know that yall can prob buy some 7"ers if yall want.

Closed Cassette

ripped off from

Chillwave? Not quite. I'ma go with Chillgaze (thank u They also say you "can file Closed Cassette next to Teen Daze, Sunvisor, Hooray!, Blackbird Blackbird etc etc". There's a new song up on the artists tumblr I recommend listening to it. I can't listen to streaming audio right now, so yall will prob get to listen to it before I do...h8 yall. <3

ClosedCassette-Helpers by brostradamus


ripped off from

Post-apocalyptic ambient of the aptly named depatterning off their Liminal Farm EP. This is the music that would result if Aphex Twin took a valium (instead of speed?) Summarized by the artist on their website "electricity . childhood . farming . canada". This track is described (by the same) as "Trapped in Uranium City, Saskatchewan, a woman fears that the morse code signal will not reach anyone"

Royal Hideouts

ripped off from

So I decided I would call this "dreamy quasibeach pop (beachy in Nova Scotia maybe)" well they're from Brighton, Mass...I was close. The internets [via] describes this as 'deteriorated pop made in a closet' and invokes genres such as "psych-pop, new wave, post punk, and shoegaze". I'll bend a little on the psych-pop. In fact I feel like this isn't quite dream or psych-pop, a sort of hybrid. As for those other labels?...NO. Decide for yourself

Ok, I'm really stretchin my limits of BS today. I'ma say warm 'Post-rock' ambient experimental with lot's of emotion. Apparently this bro's name is Ben Chatwin and he's from London. I can really relate to him, he collects anything that makes noise, records those noises, and finds ways to incorporate them into his music-- which is similar to my ideal way of making music. Except that I hope I can incorporate those elements into an 'electro' minimalist chillwave sound. Anyway, have a listen.

Talvihorros - The Blue Cathedral

Talvihorros - Twin Peaks Theme


Chill dream/synthpop reminiscent of a more downtempo Twin Shadow. Comparisons have been made to Memory House. You decide. Either way, this was one of my most exciting finds on this "blog day." Hope yall enjoy it as much as I have.

Pandit - Scotch

Night Drugs

Ahhh, finally my first 'electro' post. I'd call this down/mid-tempo electro(nica). Kinda reminiscent of this "Nothin 2 Step 2" remix by hellificanremember. Not really sure though what to do with this music besides listen. Good for the after-after party [via bein a 'trustfund jackass']? But that could just be because I'm sitting on my ass and I don't have it cranked up. Anyway, just give it a listen, DL it, and it will enhance yousa 'electro' portfolio.

Night Drugs - Idole

Night Drugs - Shined On Me

Mean Wind

Chill indie pop noise, reminiscent of Broken Social Scene [via anthem of a 17 year old girl [re: "but what age should our kids be having sex?" "seventeen" "but what if they're not ready to handle the overwhelming emotions brought on by an intimate connection?" "seventeen"]].

Mean Wind - Coming Down The Mountain

Mean Wind - I Haven't Spoken Our Shared

Still here? Here's another song

Get Mean Wind - Yr Swword at their band camp, error with the file yall

Cold Seeds

Lo-fi at times folky/melodic stuff, Cold Seeds is a collaboration that includes this bro Kenny Anderson that apparently used to call himself "King Creosote". I've never really listened to this 'King Creosote Soaked Log yousa need to clean your chimneys so your house doesnt burn down yall' because honestly it sounds like it would be bad folk music. Plus I was probably ridin techno/electronica waves in those days. I guess the other members of this collab had 'careers' prior to Cold Seeds. Whatever, I'm sure this stuff is better than any of the members prior works. But these tracks got feelin yall, so give 'em a listen.

Cold Seeds - The Perfume On Mexican Birds

Cold Seeds - Leave Me Alone To Lie On The Ground
