monday synth

Welcome to the inner workings of my mind… So dark and foul I can’t disguise…can’t disguise

Nights like this
I become afraid
Of the darkness in my heart
Hurricane.

What’s wrong with me
Why not understand and see
I never saw
What you saw in me

Keep my eyes open
My lips sealed
My heart closed
And my ears peeled

Holy shit my Monday just got better because of this synth masterpiece, remixed by CHVRCHES.

For one day only, I am now truly back in the 80’s. MS MR‘s slow, catchy hook has been sped up just a tad and the pop beat goes on and on. Also a lyrical masterpiece.

Protip: Enjoy your day.

tuesday music trio

Here’s a trio of tracks to entice you. Happy Tuesday!

I know nothing of these guys, just like the song. So there it is. I’m going to keep my eye out on these guys, you probably should to. I have that feeling, you know?

The Neighborhood is another band I really dig. They put out a track named “Sweater Weather” about a year ago which is basically like a teen lover’s anthem and such. Well, the original is awesome, but another band remixed the holy shit out of it. Here is Little Daylight‘s remix of Sweater Weather. Follow Little Daylight.

And finally,

Mayer Hawthorne‘s Designer Drug. Holy sweet jesus I think I was just attacked by a soul tornado.

My wife and I listened to this in the car yesterday and stared at each other and smiled uncontrollably. You should try it too.

Free downloads. Two times, bounce. bounce.

 

 

 

good love

I’d like to introduce a band I’ve been working with, Good Love:

Rock/Funk (slash rap, rhythm  and blues) band from Alabama is insanely talented.

The audio isn’t the best in the world, you know, because it was recorded live, but here’s a sample:

Rest assured! More is coming soon.

All in good time. Mainly this post is a lesson in cooperation across vast distances.  The band had some concept artwork, but it needed a nice polish to it. Enter talented, creative individuals and a friction-less economy.

Zinodaur is a superb graphic designer from Romania who I located promoting/selling his skills on the internet for bitcoin. The entrepreneurship of this younger generation astounds me. I had to test his skill-set.

original design

You can read his description here in his portfolio.

The band had 2 excellent ideas/concepts for logos and artwork.

Design #1

The first original design was quite good and we only wanted to clean it up and get it ready for print. The logo at the top of this page was the finalized design and we’ve been using it to mock up some t shirts. What do you think?

These are all still in the “research and development” stage, but some samples of this design have been ordered for a select few die-hard fans to perform “field trials“.

Design #2

The second concept was a drawing in the shape of heart on a sheet of lined notebook paper. The letters of the words “Good Love” were in the shape of the heart. I asked Zinodaur to take this design concept and also incorporate negative space between the lettering; a musical instrument; perhaps I asked him for “something groovy”.  He said this wouldn’t entirely be an easy job and it might take him some time.

3 days and 3 bitcoins later, he came through with this and we couldn’t be happier:

tshirt coming soon!

So expect some of these available for purchase soon at a Good Love show near you. Right now, the plan is to sell them for $10 so we can break even.

They should be Available by the April 27th show coming up at The Crimson Tavern.

introducing ReallyKayRoss aka Kyle Ralston

Guess what I’m listening to on repeat right now? This guy

I’m loving the beat on this one. Vocals are on point. If I was this good I would probably rap too. Who produced it? Where’s the info? I know it’s raw, but it is good.

Goddamnit give us more info, yo. Where’s the twitter-tube social links? Where do I find out more ?

Don’t believe me? Fine. Here, listen to this:

Did you just hear what I heard? Funky.  He kills the track. Once again, I’m left wanting more. At the time of writing this 89 people have played that track on soundcloud.  How is that even possible? I may be 5 of the 89 plays now.

Let’s find out who ReallyKayRoss is. Nothing but talent.

two track thursday – march 14 2013

I bailed on Two Track Thursdays… I admit it.

Let’s play catch-up. I could tell you about how I’ve been listening to Minnesota’s Altered States EP or the Keys & Krates Lucid Dreams EP, both of which are epic, but I won’t do that. Today I think what you’ll get from me is a music dump of more than just two songs. I’ll try to not be too random about it.

Also, apparently Bauer blew up with that Harlem Shake thing while I was away.

Boombox’s “Lost Ya”, funky. Makes me wiggle a little bit and tap my feet.

Keys & Krates dropped an EP awhile back like I mentioned earlier. Here’s “Follow you Down”. Bass drop at 1:20 makes me moist. Want to snuggle it all the way down.

Aer’s “Take it Wrong”. Almost summertime. Here’s a band to look out for.

Josh Heinrich’s cover of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain”. This one also has a summer feel, comes to us from TSIS:

Bonus DJ mixes:

Manilla Killa’s remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Born to Die”. The “Who me?” drop at 45 secs is ruling me.

Litte Daylight’s remix of The Mowgli’s “San Francisco”. Better than the original for sure.

Plastic People’s trap remix of Avicii’s “Levels”.  Get crunk, this one is a serious banger.

And finally, last but not least, something Newish. DJ Panic City’s remix of Capital Cities “Safe & Sound”.  Mellow.

That’s it for now. Keep following.

BenZel – Fallin’ Love

BenZel is Umi Takahashi (15) and Yoko Watanabe (16). Originally from Osaka; Umi and Yoko both travelled to New York through their local foreign exchange program. They met in early 2012 through an online message board about ankle socks and quickly discovered they each had a profound appreciation for 90’s R&B and J. Dilla. After many failed attempts to create a hypoallergenic ankle sock, they decided to put their efforts toward other creative ventures. Following hours of soul searching; they decided to start BenZel…they’ve been working on it since yesterday.
