Kon – Awe Baby (Medlar Remix)

It's been wonderfully hot this past weekend, like 37° hot, and clear and dry and basically wonderful, so I've been chilling out around the pool with some pretty mellow tunes over the last few days, top pick of which is the wonderfully brilliant Medlar remix of Kon's "Awe Baby" on BBE.   If you've heard the original from Kon's 2013 LP "On my Way" the remix will be familiar but different enough it worth while. Taking the bulk...

On a Break

Lot's been happening around here recently and it's become clear we don't have time to juggle at the moment – so we've decided to take two weeks off whilst we sort everything out.   We'll be down for two weeks from today, and back ready to rock asap… tahnks for everyone's continued support… Aapie & Fourbearsjr

David Byrne – Make Believe Mambo

I had it all planned, a lovely track came on this morning and I thought, ah, that will do for tonight and then I got home, checked in to Facebook and there, on the talking heads timeline was a live version of Make Believe Mambo by David Byrne.   As Aapie, mentioned the other day, we have been doing this blog for quite a while now and every now and then something catches me out....

Rihanna – Work feat Drake (Phantoms Remix)

You'd have to have been living under a rock to not have heard Work by Rhianna and Drake. It's been number one pretty much all over the world at some point in the last 6 months and in fairness it's a pretty decent track in it's original form. But it's the re-work by the mighty Phantoms that's been stuck in my head for the last few weeks.   I realise it's quite unusual for us to feature...

Extraperlo – Chill Aqui

Im not going to mess about tonight, straight in and out as i have only just managed to get the two littlest fourbears to sleep. Plus, i have posted about the Barcelona band Extraperlo before, a track fom the fantastic album from 2009 Desayuno Continental. Apparently they released something in 2012 which somehow managed to pass me by (damn the sheer volume of digitally released music these days), but which i will most definitely be checking out.  ...

Imagined Herbal Flows – Evolve

Instrumental Hip Hop gets a bad rep in this day and age, Trip Hop seems to be a dirty word but it's a genre I still love and admire very much. In my opinion it’s also one of the hardest genres of music to make well. Keeping a down tempo track flowing and interesting with no vocal hook etc.. is, uhm, difficult.   In setting out and listening to Wednesdays post I stumbled across a track I'd not...

Asava – Avant Garden (Acoustic Drums)

One of the most difficult things in modern music (imo) is blending the sound of more traditional instruments (things like guitars and drums) with electronic production techniques and Synths without it sounding disjointed or off kilter. There are a few people that can pull it off well and recently we've featured artists like Sorcerer, Tycho, Kauf, and before that Ratatat.   About a week ago or so I was sent a copy of Avant Garden by Philly based Asava, and both Fourbearsjr and I...

The Hornblower Brothers – Counting Roadkill

Every now and then a song comes along and gets stuck in your head. When that happens round summer it can end up being classed as the song of that summer or maybe just associated with that one. Well today's track has certainly got potential. Since I heard it on the Marc Riley show on 6 music while tidying the kitchen it has been on repeat ever since.   This is the first time I have...

Todd Terje – Snooze 4 Love (Dixon Remix)

None of todays choice should be new to regular readers, everyone who's passed by this page should know by now we're big fans of both Todd Terje and Dixon, so having Dixon re-edit one of Terje's finest moments was always going to catch our attention.   Terje's Ragysh EP came out back in 2011, on the flip side was Snooze 4 Love a brilliant 8 minute work out of all Terjes signature sounds. In reality i...

The Magnetic Fields – Save A Secret For The Moon

It's going to be a quick one tonight but a track from one of my favourite artists/bands. I have been binging on the Magnetic Fields stuff over the last two days as I travel to and from work and then it dawned on me that I hadn't put up anything from them before, which is quite frankly outrageous. So time to rectify that.   Most people will know Stephin Merritt and his work as the Magnetic...
