long hours and heavy rotation

November 14, 2009

To follow up on Camstyles post I have been pulling some long hours in front of the computer these days, working on new projects. Like many of us out there I suffer from music ADD. So when an artist or album comes a long that I play over and over I know it’s something special. Lately I have been getting into indie, blues rock, dream pop, and of course some techno. Here are some artists that have helped me pass the time; in each genre:

INDIE:

Sub pop’s fleet foxes hailing from Seattle, some nice easy listening that can be listened to loud or soft depending on your mood, enjoy…

15 Mykonos (Alternative Version)

04 tiger mountain peasant song

BLUES-ROCK:

The Black Keys, I kept hearing their name everywhere for a few years but never really listened to them. Until I started watching the HBO show ” HUNG” thier song I’ll be your man is the theme song for the show, so I got some of their albums and really enjoyed what I heard.

05 Lies – The Black Keys

03 Black Keys – The Big Come Up – I’ll Be Your Man

 

DREAM POP:

I first heard Silversun Pickups at a friends house the other night. I first I thought it was a new Smashing Pumpkins album then I though it was Girls against Boys. Then I realized I had to have it. Check these guys out… serious!

03 – Growing Old Is Getting Old

04 – It’s Nice To Know You Work Alone

 

TECHNO:

Shadow dancer, I just love these guys!

01 Cowbois (Original) ( watch out for the drop at 1:30)

13 This Is This 1 ( no need to work dj, this track does everything for you )

 

ghost on tape: check out the mix this dude just did for xlr8r

Ghosts_On_Tape_-_Magadishu_Night_Life

 

enjoy guys!

its been a while since i got into a dizzee track but the hokey disco vocals and silky horn sample take the edge off and make this a guaranteed head nodder

Florence & The Machine- Rabbit Heart

Her name is Florence Welch and together they are Florence and the Machine.  You just get lost in this song with her sweet sweet voice and cool housy remix by Leo Zero. Looks like these guys will be busy with festivals in the UK this summer and their cd is out now.
