I'm not entirely sure if this is a legally-distributed record, but I'm posting it anyway because the awesomeness of it is overruling my desire to confirm its legality. This is Dubfire's performance from the strange and incredible Resistance "stage" at Ultra last weekend. I used dick fingers around the word stage because it was more … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Kicking off this week's trio of free music downloads is a brand, spankin new track from Big Gigantic, the sax-centric electronic duo out of Boulder. I first saw Big G play at Electric Forest 2011, and I'm not gonna lie, I don't remember a whole lot of details from that show, except that there was … Continue reading frankles free fridays

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

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

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

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

My good friend and all-around beacon of positive energy, Chris, is headed to Shambhala next weekend, where many such beacons have gone, and should go. He asked my advice on shows he should see at the festival in British Columbia, and at first I was flattered that he'd asked. After reviewing the line-up, and checking … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Sunday Sounds: Lane 8 | Rise

I was originally planning on reviewing the new Chemical Brothers LP for today's Sunday Sounds, but when I woke up today, all I wanted to hear was Lane 8's new album, "Rise," one more time. The above was written last Sunday morning, when I attempted and ultimately fell short of writing about all of the … Continue reading Sunday Sounds: Lane 8 | Rise
