Ear Noms: Adventure Club

This is gonna get stuck in your head. You’ll forget about it, it’ll rattle around and fuck shit up! Adventure Club in one of the premiere names in Dubstep this year; every track they release is just “dripping in gold.” Below is a link to their Facebook where you can download a healthy chunk of their music for FREE just for liking them. And honestly, who wouldn’t? Put this on to become Mechagodzilla and rearrange some Japanese infrastructure.

Listen Both Ways

This one’s for Kelsey (and probably any other fans of Florence & The Machine, Of Monsters & Men, The Hush Sound, anything indie/folk/soul/big band/pop really).

The Chicago based quartet is really growing on me, and it hasn’t taken long. Their energy and life pops without coming across as overbearing or annoying, as many female-fronted electrifolk acts have the tendency to do. Fronted by vocalist/founding member Genevieve Schatz, she is urgent and powerful in her message; all the while, maintaining an attractively creepy tone with eccentric syllable pronunciation. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that for 4 minutes in a coffee shop, my life turns into a musical episode of a sitcom and this will be what everyone is belting. Put this on to help discover the wonders of caffeine.

Watercolor paintings that make up a scrapbook

Full and focused, in an empty/confused sort of way. It’s supremely chill. Put this on while rinsing the ink out of your brain wrinkles.

Uptown Psychedelia

Most days I am unaware of the extent to which a human can unravel its mind. Today I am not so lucky. This will pull apart your thoughts if you let your guard down. It is truly sonic beauty, the same way a rotting barn is beautiful, or train tracks. Put this on to transcend.

LoveLoveLovestep!

This track gives me hope! Hope for the new direction of EDM; hope for a newfound joy of life; hope that some day soon, glowing purple will descend from the clouds and take all of us funky, groovy, party people to a musical utopia. Put this on while waiting to board.

He’s calling his genre Lovestep, which is pleasantly appropriate. Visit his Soundcloud for more tracks and some free downloads.

Thumbs Up For Rock And Roll

I don’t usually post club hits, but this is gonna be big. This track’s got everything: a heavy, danceable beat, synths effected to insanity, and a vocal sample that’s sure to get everyone hyped. There’s been such a movement towards darkness that these inspirational anthems are a breath of fresh bass. The message here is one of modest brilliance: EDM is gradually replacing Rock ‘n Roll. These kids are freaking over sounds that past generations hear as offensive noise. They want things raw, dripping with energy and surging with power. And this all makes sense in a world that becomes more infused with technology everyday. Play this while defending your home from zombies.

What do you think? Is this Dubstep/House/Electrobanger craze just this decade’s fad or have the kids really struck gold?

 

 

Here’s the video from which the speech is sampled. At over 5 million views, I’m sure you’ve seen it, but it never ceases to inspire.

Sound Tribe Sector 9: EHM

This seems to have everything. It’s smooth, it’s soulful, it rocks, it jams. This is Mom’s PB&J with the crusts cut off in musical form, made with extra love.  I might just make this the track of the day, everyday.

The group has a huge chunk of music posted for free streaming over on their Soundcloud which means I will be posting an album review for them soon.

∆ (alt-J) cools down

The trio displays a dip in something a bit cooler: a dark and spacious tone kept tight with click click percussion. Alt-J demonstrates another manipulation of the same idea, never seeming to surprise and fulfill. Put this on to seduce your neighbors.

Vessel: Court of Lions

This is still dance music, to a degree. It’s dark, heavy beats and oddstyle sampling give it more of an IDM feel, but it’s keeping me interested nonetheless. Turn off your lights, take off your clothes, get stoned, and rub against your carpet  for the next 6 minutes – there’s a bit of yourself to be lost in the texture.

Vessel doesn’t have this particular track for sale, so I’ve included some extra goodies. For those with a bit more sensibility, here is Nylon Sunset, featuring easy to digest pads, a simple beat, and mild sampling. Below is a link to their iTunes page where more mellow sounds can be found.

alascA: Never Cry Wolf

This one’s cold and creepy- natural instruments provide a soft texture against the grain of the electric swells. Hope is found inside this collision of sound.

Excellence is brought upon by commitment. Those who commit to the facts of their ideal life will always have a direction. Many complain of the exhaustive effort of giving up smoking cigarettes. They have trouble with the idea of changing their life, to committing to the idea that they can become a person who doesn’t want and doesn’t need to smoke. Once the destination has been established, every choice from then on must be made with the intent to reach that place. This place, this ideal life, will become clearer with time.
The next step is so very essential, because it’s the only way to stay focused. My goal is to spread knowledge and culture to those with their eyes open in the dark. Every decision that I make with regards to this future version of myself must be made so as to increase the likelihood of this future.
I don’t have any psychic abilities; connection to the universe is a choice to make. I chose to take off the hood, to lift my chin up towards the light and let my feet follow themselves.

What is your ideal vision?
