Moby - Long Ambients1: Calm. Sleep.




Band / Artist: Moby
Year: 2017
Genre: Ambient, Minimalist, Chillout

My Review:
For every Yoga, Meditation, or sleep session you need to start, there is now Moby, coming to save the day and be a badass vegan bald little person with a surprisingly deep voice.

Each of these separate long ambient pieces runs a different time, so you can pick the one that fits the time you have to use meditating or getting into childs pose (that shit is comfy af).

Anyway, Hats off to Moby for still doing cool shit after like 20 years.

Judah & the Lion - Judah & the Lion


Band / Artist: Judah & the Lion
Year: 2017
Genre: Indie Folk, Indie Dance, Folk Pop

My Review:
This has been on steady rotation in the car the last 2 weeks. I've been enjoying the sort of nostalgic southernality of it, in this sense of all the pleasant and good things of the south, but from a more fresh and welcoming perspective than the south seems to have to many.

Its cool how they mix fiddle and banjo and acoustic guitar with drum machine and synthesizer in an odd bluegrass/folk/pop sort of medley. It flows far better than you'd expect at first glance.

Here is their website.

These guys are out of Nashville, TN, which should surprise nobody. I really appreciate their sound. It reminds me of driving in the coastal area of Georgia with my windows down, smelling the marsh air in the sunshine.

Aphex Twin - All user18081971 Soundcloud Tracks



Band / Artist: Aphex Twin
Year: 2015
Genre: IDM, Braindance

My Review:
So I was enjoying the tracks from the User18081971 account and noticed that many tracks had disappeared. I was kind of bummed out and figured id find somewhere they'd be streaming. little did I expect to get this.

I got to see him play live for the first time in a decade at the Day For Night festival in December, and so I've been on a kick since then. (I'm going to Day For Night again for sure. It was absolutely amazing. Who wants to meet up there?)

Anyway, here are about 280 tracks from Aphex Twin, in an easy to listen to or download format, and they were all freely downloadable before off of SoundCloud,

LLLAMAS - LLLAMAS EP



Band / Artist: LLLAMAS
Year: 2016
Genre: Krautrock, Garage Rock, Alternative Rock

My Review:

A fun little set of tracks from this band i just found out of Seattle. I like their sounds, and wouldn't mind if I end up hearing more of them in the future. Its a bit hard to pin down exactly, some kind of spacey rock sounds, good stuff.

Also from them is a single on their ghost of a bandcamp page.

-{:(.SINGLES.):}- Notch - Do U Like


Band / Artist: Notch
Year: 2016
Genre: Minimal, Microhouse

My Review:
After a long way out, I am back to run this thing again.

And what better way to approach a return than with a short, calming album with a cover picture of someone dancing madly in a world on fire!? Fitting right?


Anyway,. I don't know much about this artist, and I can fill in some info on them later but for now, I wanted to get this out there, and send the message to people that I hope you are okay, and have some music. Take care of yourself out there, okay?

Noizhartt - Age Of Apocalypse (Various Artist)


Band / Artist: Noizhartt, Fryquenciezz, Aurokarya, Dizmental, A.T.O.A.M., Plasmorh, Mimic Vat, Hypnotoad, Critical Freak, HyperBurst, Metaform, Moksa & Nibiru
Year: 2015
Genre: Hi-tech, Dark Psychedelic, Psytrance

My Review:
Its very fast. Its very warbly, and reverby. It's just what you want on headphones while you run and run and run, like you've never run in your life. Maybe you take a giant amount of mind altering chemicals and dance amidst blinky lights with like-minded strangers. maybe you play fast paced video games and this is just what you need. Either way, Its like I said, fast and trippy, and kinda mean.

Anyway, So the composer of the album is one of the musicians in the album itself, which sometimes i feel weird about, because that seems kinda self serving, and normally i dont find the artist that curated the album makes songs that work as well. In this case, it seems like a well fitting track to fit within the album itself.

Here is the artists facebook.

And their website. Go see them.

P.O.S - WDELH/MDS/RMX


Band / Artist: P.O.S
Year: 2013
Genre: Punk-Rap, Electro, Rap Rock, Remixes, Alternative Hip-Hop

My Review:
SO GOOD. I love good punk rap, expecially great remixes of good punk rap. I'm really bouncing my head to this. So, Marijuana Death Sqauds made a remix from P.O.S's album, We Don't Even Live Here.

P.O.S describes the album by saying, "WDELH/MDS/RMX is We Don't Even Live Here, remixed and re-imagined by my dancy, noise band Marijuana Deathsquads.”

Here is a link to Marijuana Death Squads.

Here is a link to the We Don't Even Live Here album.

And here is a link to P.O.S

Anyway, If you enjoyed Run The Jewels / Meow The Jewels, then this one will be right up your alley. I'm gonna say something that'd start a firestorm over at pitchfork, but these guys and the kind of music they are putting out is what I think of as the prime styles of aggressive punk-rap. I'd rather one album from them, than ten by Death Grips. Not to talk smack, but the mixing of power and groove is a big part of it, for me at least.

Alright. I have little more to say, Just go take a listen and have fun.

Uncle Neptune - In a Perfect World


Band / Artist: Uncle Neptune
Year: 2003
Genre:

My Review:
This is the bubbliest music I think I may have ever heard. This guy must be either really sad, or the happiest person you've ever met in your life. His name is Jamie Ward. He's talented, and interesting enough to take a good look at.

Here is his bandcamp and facebook pages,
http://uncle-neptune.bandcamp.com/
https://www.facebook.com/uncleneptune

Its listed as a genre called Tin Pan Alley. I have no idea what that means. It all sounds like pleasant little ditties with lots of acoustic guitar, that makes you kinda do that thing where you rock your feet on your heel to the beat of a song. It has a lot of finishing to it as well, for something that sounds so out of the norm.

...OH. Tin Pan Alley is some kind of old music genre from the late 1800s to early 1900s. It's really odd to hear at start, but is really good. lots of styles are being pulled together into this old-timey sound, that he seems to control very well. It also lends itself to his voice very well.

And thats not all. This album has a MASSIVE list of contributors. Seriously, here. Look at this.

Uncle Neptune - Vocals, Kazoo
Jeff Silver - Banjo, Ukelele, backup vocals, percussion
Jean Bean - Vocals, Backup vocals
Robbie Grunwald - Piano
Steve Mensher - Drums
Jonno Lightstone - Clarinet
Dave Lum - Tuba
Earl Lapierre - Steel drums
Brett Higgins - Bass
Rupert Price - Trombone
Josh Brown - Trombone
Mike Greco - Trumpet
Ari Dasgupta - Clarinet
Marc Silver - Piano
Moira Nelson - Harp, Vocals
Andy Frost - Lap steel

Anyway, if you have kids, this stuff would be great for them. If you dig it, you should backsearch, because there are 2 more albums from this guy on the same netlabel.
