The eighth month + 2, Peter Tosh’s, Model T’s, Twilight Zone’s and my birth, the 89’ quake of SF and All Hallows’ Even - October is all up on us.  Lots to be thankful for and plenty of fun to be had.  Here is the soundtrack.

JST.PRSS.PLY|> OCT 11’

//////////

License To This | OCT 11’ - Might as well do some halloween tracks for this months Licence to This.

  • Round In Circles.mp3 - verbed out acoustic guitar paired with thrashy drums set the stage for a dark vampire bar that you might not be able to leave till morning. if you survive the night that is.
  • Slashing Wrists Raising Prices.mp3 - trudging through the mud on a revenge spree, vindicating his slain love.  breakdown leaves time for quick reflection a couple slow motion kills then jumps back into the spree.
  • Out Is In.mp3 - badass rolles into town setting things straight.  big guitar riffs, laid back tempo with just the right swagger.
  • Spooky Traveler.mp3 - tricker treaters with wholesome, hallmark levels of mischief in the works. organs, synth strings and harpsichord. 
  • Clockwork Metal.mp3 - a reverse glass rhythm with reverse pads and snake rattles set the stage for a psycho or supernatural killer on a quiet night at summer camp.  is anyone there?   
  • Tranquil Shores.mp3 - sparse piano, strings and glock.  the sun has come up after a week of battling zombies.  a butterfly lands on a leaf.  life will continue.
  • Dark Orchestral.mp3 - orchestral hip hop lays down the perfect foundation for some slow motion walking through the deserted streets. 
  • Killa.mp3 - dark and erie pads break into Goldie’s famous drum and bass sound.  pitched vox and breaks add to the demonic sound.
  • Fuzz Wasp.mp3 - bits missing from this low fi grinder.  club music for the strange, scary and possibly living dead.
  • Control port.mp3 - driving beat with filtered synth punches. goth sound on a dark night driving a trans am.

Based on the rain, a slight color change of leaves and the sub 90 degree weather, I fear we are at the top of a slippery slope, sliding our way right through Fall into Winter. Before starting the decent, I plan on making the most of this month and any chances for warm weather clothes and activities!

  • C’est Magnifique.mp3 - extra smokey down tempo acoustic track with female french vocals.
  • The Job.mp3 - choppy building electronic track with a buzzy bass and some breathy female vocal pads.  nice edit drop out and rebuild. 
  • Jumping Spiders.mp3 - break beat with a fat bass groove and guitars backing it up
  • Rocktronics.mp3 - dredging electric guitars ooze attitude and drop into a big break beat…freeing up to a smooth hook
  • Golden Spice.mp3 - head bobbing steady elctro-beat builds into a guitar ripper.
  • Say It.mp3 - dreamy mover keeps a fast pace with buzzy space synths, jangley guitar, live drums, and some filter female vocals. 
  • Somethin For Nuthin.mp3 - big guitars lead into a driving beat and big lead guitar tones.  lots of attitude.  ebb and flow.
  • Fierce.mp3 - stomping dance beat perfect for a runway strut.  Justic and Daft Punk come to mind.

great idea, great execution.

dodge journey positions itself as the ‘search engine for the world wide world’ (love that), and this campaign puts 3 out there for you to find — if you can get off the internet long enough to look, that is.

killing it, rutter.

Summer is fully upon us!  We’ve had some amazing heat, concerts and block-partys here in NYC. Summer has also been the kick off of Spotify here in the states.  I’m on it here and will be including some playlists links as I see fit.   

//////////

JST.PRSS.PLY|> AUG 11’ - A mess.  Fresh.  As always, check out the JST.PRSS.PLY|> page for my ever-growing, unorganized, inspiring mix-tape.

//////////

License To This | AUG 11’ - I started this search off as Summer Mix 2, but thing veered a bit when checking out some of our new releases.  Figure its better for the genre integrity of my playlist to suffer a touch for the sake of fresh jams.

  • Crush On You.mp3 - synthy pop tune with a nice boom chick beat.  a quick drop leads into the anthemic chorus.  with a nice breakdown and break up this one feels confident, tables have turned and things are on the up and up. 
  • Summer Planet.mp3  - synth pop jam.  kicking off summer right.  synth drops out here and there for a nice bent guitar melody.
  • Bring It To You No Melody.mp3 - great building track with a strong slightly gritty guitar melody.  a drum machine, a xylophone and some synth round this into a trotting a light summer piece that keeps on building.
  • Wunderkind.mp3  - driving acoustic strummer with a glock and some humming leading it along.  slap your knee, enjoy the beach and watch the sun go down on the perfect day.
  • Digital dusk.mp3 - the name suites this simple digital but warm arpeggiation smearing.  a simple dub step beat minus the wobble with a touch of “indie”, I could see this being the sound track for a late night or a dreamy day. 
  • Milk.mp3  - arpeggiated guitar work leads this short and simple acoustic track into a thoughtful, caring and lovable place.  feels like a hug and a sunrise at the same time.
  • Harvest ensemble.mp3 - this twangy number is backed by a serious string section.  the bowed bass is amazing bringing up the low end.  definitely a versatile track.
  • Pink Tuxedo.mp3  - a modern throw back.  sounds like twisting on the beach with your long board….but just a bit off.  break beats and morphed filtering lend the kitschy tune a modern touch and a bit of underwaterness.
  • Demonic mutants.mp3 - drop break beat kicks this track into some weirdo mutant samples and turntablism.  I don’t know where to place this…but I like it.  Maybe for a space lowrider dj scene.  reminds me of Wave Twisters
  • Building A Robot.mp3  - this track came of our new CD that is coined “Themes for Slow Motion”.  I love the concept and thats exactly what it sounds like.  Give me a diving 808 kick any day of the week.

I Crack Calvary

I Break Horses - Winter Beats.mp3

I guess I have a thing for Swedish ladies that make of center pop.  Sue me.  This is Marie Linden’s (aka I Break Horses) latests ”Winter Beats” off of the upcoming debut album Hearts.  Kaboom.

Affluent Youngster

Lykke Li - Rich Kid Blues.mp3

Lykke Li dropped her second album and I finally had a listen.  All in all…good…not great.  This one caught my ear, as it is the single.  Pretty sure I don’t dig the chorus but something in here (probably the organ) is what I’m about.
