Sunday Sounds: David Bowie

Yes, this is the second appearance of David Bowie on Sunday Sounds, and I highly doubt it will be his last. In my first post, I accompanied the newly- and surprise-released "The Next Day" with a kind of fanboy walkthrough of Bowie's musical and technical highlights, before dumping the album and calling it a day. … Continue reading Sunday Sounds: David Bowie

Sam "Feel Good Feels" Feldt has a radio show! Also known as a podcast. Also, I just made up that nickname. His music is always just so pleasant, not unlike pool water kept at an ideal and comfortable temperature, to the point where you can almost overlook the fact that you're in water at all. … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Here's an extra-special bunch of music for this Friday. People get so givey around the holidays. It's great. First up is the new EP from What So Not, featuring the last of Emoh Instead's musical interactions with Flume. Prepare to be elated with what you hear, then probably a little miffed about Flume's sudden and … Continue reading frankles free fridays

If you've ever seen RL Grime play live, and wondered at what point you completely lost your mind, it was probably the moment he dropped the Djemba Djemba remix of Banks' "Fall Over." The swooning, dark ballad receives an injection of trap, and seems to make good on the self-destructive threats of the original. Now, … Continue reading frankles free fridays

New rule: If jackLNDN posts anything for free download, for example, his mix for Deep House London, it will wind up here on a subsequent Friday. I probably didn't need to say that, given the five or so FFF's with Jack's name on them, but there it is all the same. His newest mix covers … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Sessions is a midweek dance night at a place called The Mint Club in Leeds, and Isaac Tischauer with his vowels pitched in to help kick off their new weekly podcase, aptly titled "Sessions Stream." Former Sessions alum include Benoit & Sergio and Huxley, so it seems much of the hype about their dance nights is … Continue reading frankles free fridays

The music of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, or TEED, could be described as dance music with just the right amount of sadness. But that might be hard to tell based on his two-hour mix for Rinse FM's podcast. He covers a lot of ground in terms of genre's, but hovers in a sweet spot of … Continue reading frankles free fridays

First up we have Four Tet's two-hour contribution to Marcel Dettman's Dekmantel podcast. If you've listened to Four Tet before, you'll already know to expect a wide range of music, from "world music" to house to techno to god, who really knows where some of his stuff comes from. He's a question mark, but he's … Continue reading frankles free fridays

When I find a new song I like, I'll usually pop it into a running series of SoundCloud or Spotify playlists I assemble over the course of a month or so. I've encountered the song "Velvet Girls" by Luca Lush at various points this summer, and I've liked it so much each time that I've … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Sunday Sounds | DeVotchKa

It takes about the same amount of time to explain to somebody the name of the band DeVotchKa as it does to describe their sound. "Sort of eastern european kind of gypsy folk, infused with a little indie pop, and I guess a touch of Klezmer, maybe?" That was my feeble attempt from this morning … Continue reading Sunday Sounds | DeVotchKa
