Agree to disagree,

Every once in a while, you have to touch mainstream.


At least Day & Age is better than Sam's Town.

From Day & Age:
MP3: A Dustland Fairytale - The Killers (YSI)
MP3: This Is Your Life - The Killers (YSI)

Anathallo's Canopy Glow came out the 18th. Like it, although it's a bit waning. A nice array of instruments and vocals nonetheless.. something to be interested in..

From Canopy Glow:
MP3: Sleeping Torpor - Anathallo (YSI)

Zomby's album Where Were You in '92? is for everyone still preoccupied with 90's samples. Where was I in '92? I was three years old then.

MP3: Hench - Zomby (YSI)

Off to finish A Brief History of Time. Quite the read..

Ruff Club is tonight,


For Autumn


Here's a small bit of rarities from Donovan & Paul McCartney. The Postcard Sessions were recorded in the Autumn of 1968 in Abbey Road Studios- when Paul was recording Mary Hopkin's Post Card. Can't really understand the recordings very well.. nonetheless, it's still Paul and Donovan.

From the 1968 Postcard Sessions:

MP3: How Do You Do - Donovan & Paul McCartney (YSI)
MP3: Heather - Donovan & Paul McCartney (YSI)
MP3: Blackbird - Donovan & Paul McCartney (YSI)


Phantom Other


So, tis Halloween. I put up an "official Halloween" post a few days ago (few down). It's not very scary.

The Department of Eagles don't really have anything to do with the holiday at all. (besides the semi-frightening and woodsy album artwork, which I think is great). However, might as well post up something good whilst I'm posting the flyer for tonight's party at Ruff Club. Should be a fun night.. see it here.

The following tracks are from Department of Eagles new In Ear Park, which could very well be one of my favorite albums of 2008. It came out the beginning of October. One of those dark, terrific, every song is amazing albums that you're still listening to 5 years later. Get it!

From In Ear Park:
MP3: Teenagers - Department of Eagles (YSI)
MP3: No One Does it Like You - Department of Eagles (YSI)
MP3: Balmy Night - Department of Eagles (YSI)

On my way to get a Jedi outfit, solely because I'd rather be carrying around a Lightsaber rather than a blaster. And besides, I don't think I fit in very well with the dark side anyway.

Happy Halloween,

Here Come the Rubber Cops


Firstly and foremost, here's a little something from the new Sexual Objects (Dave Henderson from the Fire Engines) 7", which was produced by Boards of Canada. Love the track below. If The Strokes ever covered Kiss Me, this is what it might faintly sound like. A genuine feel good song. Buy the 7" here.

From the 7":
MP3: Here Come the Rubber Cops - The Sexual Objects (YSI)

Upon first listen, you might expect The Fireman to be some kind of weird new indie band from California or New Zealand. You might give them a few plays or more, not really anticipating all that much because after all, you hear an excess of indie bands nowadays, it's difficult to give every new band an actual shot. You might even ponder quietly to yourself "They sound a bit like Radiohead mixed with The Beatles...".

The thing is, what's behind The Fireman IS Paul McCartney. Yes! (and Youth). The album Electric Arguments flaunts Paul's more experimental and serious side, that most people (including myself) are somewhat oblivious to. The Fireman have had two albums prior to Electric Arguments, I suggest you give them a listen as well. That Paul. He just keeps 'em coming. Pre-order @ Amazon.

From Electric Arguments:
MP3: Dance 'Till We're High - The Fireman (YSI)
MP3: Two Magpies - The Fireman (YSI)

Off to play Wii and watch movies.
Rainy days are my favorite.

MP3: It's Rainy - The's (YSI)


A bit ridiculous.


Not quite sure if this has ever been done before. Also- not quite sure whether or not anyone has ever wanted it to be done before.. .


The following are from some of my favorite (and least favorite) parts in the first three films- including the Cantina scene (yes!). The scores were composed by John Williams. Buy the soundtracks from Amazon. Enjoy.

MP3: Imperial Attack - London Symphony Orchestra (YSI)
MP3: Cantina Band - London Symphony Orchestra (YSI)

Think I'm Thinkin' 'Bout


The following few tracks are from a band called Harlem out in Texas. Garage rock via 2008. Click on them for their myspace page and more info. I kind of like it.MP3: Beautiful & Very Smart - Harlem (YSI)MP3: Think I'm Thinkin' Bout - Harlem (YSI)Actually I really like it..Here's a mini winter mix:MP3: Cold, Cold Night - White Stripes (YSI)MP3: Winter Lady - Leonard Cohen (YSI)MP3: The Throat of Winter - T.Rex (YSI)MP3: Cold Hands - The Black Lips (YSI)MP3: Early Morning Cold Taxi - The Who (YSI)MP3: The Fox In The Snow - Belle & Sebastian (YSI)MP3: The Freeze - Link Wray (YSI)MP3: Fallen Snow - Au Revoir Simone (YSI)MP3: In the Cold I'm Standing - M83 (YSI)MP3: Abominable Snow - Islands (YSI)Starflyer 59 have had a number of releases already.. they've made about 10 full length albums prior to now. Was never really that much into them, for no reason I can quite put my finger on. Kind of blasé vocals, easy to listen to. Their newest album Dial M comes out the 28th on Tooth & Nail. Buy it here.From Dial M:MP3: Automatic - Starflyer 59 (YSI)MP3: The Brightest of the Head - Starflyer 59 (YSI)So I haven't really done much of anything or seen much of anything this week for CMJ. The 40 degree temperature in New York kind of makes you lack the motivation to leave your apartment and hop on the subway for anything. However, I am DJing Ruff Club tonight.. hope it's not that cold.This is the flier: Later,D[...]



Took some pics the other day roaming around Bushwick. Check 'em out. Not that many, worth a look.. maybe.

You probably already know about Fleet Foxes. If you don't already know about them, I think I could describe them as.. Guillemots meets The Shins? Yeah? Sounds decent to me, more than. From their S/T debut.

MP3: Isles - Fleet Foxes (YSI)
MP3: Your Protector - Fleet Foxes (YSI)

Oizo post got deleted. No idea what happened. Really blogger? Really? Again?!

MP3: Two Takes It - Mr. Oizo (YSI)
MP3: Positif - Mr. Oizo (YSI)




A little something from this band called Wavves out in California. Kind of ran into them on myspace randomly, the influences on on their page kind of describe them perfectly. They're like.. a beach-y Lightning Bolt meets Sonic Youth and Spacemen 3. Distorted pulsating rock.

MP3: Vermin - Wavves (YSI)
MP3: The Boys Will Love Us - Wavves (YSI)

Here's something completely opposite of Wavves that my roommate left on my computer. From Nico's 1967 release Chelsea Girl.

MP3: The Fairest Of The Seasons - Nico (YSI)
MP3: I'll Keep It With Mine - Nico (YSI)

Now, off to enjoy what's left of today. And hey, found my charger.


Love Can Be So Mean


YES! Sebastian Grainger's new album Sebastien Grainger & The Mountains comes out the 21st. It's so great that I truly feel obliged to blog about it. Like DFA1979, kind of, but fuzzier, lighter and with guitars.. makes you feel good. The vocals are the best part of everything though, which you already knew would be. A solid, very solid album. Every single song I like and wish I could post. Pick it up when it comes out or pre-order it from amazon.

MP3: I Hate My Friends - Sebastien Grainger (YSI)
MP3: American Names - Sebastien Grainger (YSI)
MP3: Meet New Friends - Sebastien Grainger (YSI)

Zshare isn't working yet.. I should probably start hosting the mp3's anyway. We'll see..

Bonus. The guitars kind of sound like the guitars in I Hate My Friends a little in the beginning.
MP3: Severed Lips - Dinosaur Jr. (YSI)




Just posted some Oasis/Kings of Leon tracks up a few days ago.. and it got deleted.. (see my recent hype machine tracks.. on the sidebar) If you're wondering where the post went, I'm about as clueless as you are.

Perhaps a password change is necessary? If you're getting redirected here from hypem and are let down, I'll post the tracks again soon.. ish. Not on my computer right now.


It's called love


Before I go on another month long blog seclusion, here's some Thieves Like Us and some New Order, and Thieves Like Us by New Order.

MP3: Theives Like Us - New Order (YSI)

Here's something a bit softer and acoustic and a bit random for this particular post, from Annuals Wet Zoo EP, released this past April.

MP3: Just Stay In - Annuals (YSI)


New Stufffff


Alright, I know, haven't been updating. My neighbor finally figured out how to put a lock on their wireless. If only I lived somewhere not in New York where everyone steals internet. From Oasis' new Dig Out Your Soul, the bonus disc.MP3: Falling Down (The Chemical Brothers remix) - Oasis (YSI)The Raveonettes' new digital album Sometimes They Drop By is pretty good. Very synthesized, galactic, fuzzy and weird. Which I like. Check out The Raveonettes remixed by Trentmøeller on for free, somewhere on the site. Find it.From Sometimes They Drop By:MP3: Blood Red Leis - The RaveonettesMP3: Way Out There - The RaveonettesSneaky Sound System.. 2. I'm half a fan. 2 is dancey, pop-y, likeable for those who like that sort of thing. I give it a 6? Not feeling the vocals.. really.. that much.. at all.. Not quite sure as to why. S'alright.MP3: I Just Don't Want To Be Loved - Sneaky Sound System (YSI)MP3: Lost In The Future - Sneaky Sound System (YSI)Who likes some PNAU?! Old, sort of. Who cares.. so good. From the S/T 2007 album.MP3: Shock To My System - PNAU (YSI)MP3: Lover - PNAU (YSI)MP3: Freedom - PNAU (YSI)Not done just yet! Hexes and Ohs. Bedroom Madness came out September 2nd. Happy computer music.MP3: H-H-Highschool - Hexes & Ohs (YSI)MP3: You're A Hologram - Hexes & Ohs (YSI)[...]

Then again, there's nothing wrong with remixes


Had a pretty crazy, pretty overwhelming weekend at work (Opening Ceremony). If you know about the store you probably know why.. Came home a few hours ago to a bunch of 12 year olds screaming and running around on the street, must be some kind of holiday.

From Late of the Pier's Fantasy Black Channel.. give it 2 minutes and 25 seconds:
MP3: The Bears Are Coming (Emperor Machine Remix) - Late of the Pier (YSI)

From Bloc Party's Mercury. CSS remix is sweet, Herve kinda choppy:
MP3: Mercury (Herve Is In Disarray Remix) - Bloc Party (YSI)
MP3: Mercury (CSS Remix) - Bloc Party (YSI)

Ratatat's LP3 is great. Enjoy it especially because of Flynn and Mi Viejo in particular, reminds me of being on an island somewhere far, far away from New York.

MP3: Gipsy Threat - Ratatat (YSI)
MP3: Flynn - Ratatat (YSI)

A little something from Eric Prydz & Fred Falke, feelin' the whole 80's intro:
MP3: Pjanoo (Fred Falke Mix) - Eric Prydz (YSI)

Extra- from Erlend Oye's DJ Kicks.

MP3: Rubicon - Alan Braxe & Fred Falke (YSI)


Why are all the most popular tracks on the hype machine remixes?


From 1969's Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. I think of Neil Young as a more emotional Bob Dylan, who probably smoked less cigarettes. Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere- My favorite album of his. (2nd Studio album):MP3: Down By The River - Neil Young & Crazy Horse (YSI)MP3: Round And Round (It Won't Be Long) - Neil Young & Crazy Horse (YSI)MP3: Cinnimon Girl - Neil Young & Crazy Horse (YSI)It's too sunny and hot to spend any time walking around, need something to do that takes up a lot of time, like uploading. So, here's a nice mini Sonic Youth discog compilation. If you don't have an idea of what every Sonic Youth album sort of sounds like, here's your chance. Just an easy click on the links below. Get all of the albums at Amazon.My favorite Sonic Youth albums were all released in the mid 90's. Solid tracks, somewhat traditional style, a bit of a chorus or returning melody. Their early stuff was too weird and experimental for my taste (maybe Sister and Daydream Nation holding some exceptions). The early stuff wasn't hard to listen to or anything- I just prefer Washing Machine to Bad Moon Rising. Anyway, not great at explaining, here it is:In order of my favorites- not chronological.1998 A Thousand LeavesMP3: Sunday - Sonic Youth (YSI)1995 Washing Machine:MP3: Unwind - Sonic Youth (YSI)1988 Daydream Nation:MP3: Teenage Riot - Sonic Youth (YSI)1987 Sister:MP3: Beauty Lies In The Eye - Sonic Youth (YSI)1986 Evol:MP3: Star Power - Sonic Youth (YSI)1990 Goo:MP3: Tunic (Song For Karen) - Sonic Youth (YSI)2000 NYC Ghosts & FlowersMP3: NYC Ghosts & Flowers - Sonic Youth (YSI)2002 Murray Street:MP3: Rain On Tin - Sonic Youth (YSI)1992 Dirty:MP3: Chapel Hill - Sonic Youth (YSI)2004 Sonic Nurse:MP3: Dripping Dream - Sonic Youth (YSI)1994 Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star (not one of my favorite albums..):MP3: Self-Obsessed And Sexxee - Sonic Youth (YSI)1985 Bad Moon Rising (eh):MP3: Halloween - Sonic Youth (YSI)Left out 1983's Confusion is Sex because I don't like it much, and their latest because I think I've already posted about it..Something extra.From the Dirty Boots EP:MP3: The Bedroom - Sonic Youth (YSI)-D[...]

El Borrachito

Cool it now?


Just moved a few weeks ago from Chinatown. Probably won't update this thing much until I get (1) A faster wireless internet connection from a different neighbor or (2) The neighbor I'm currently getting internet from buys some kind of wireless range extender or (3) Install my own internet.. which is sort of unlikely. Sit tight.

It's summertime, why not:

MP3: Hey Mr D.J. - Zhane (YSI)
MP3: Cool it Now - New Edition (YSI)
MP3: A-E-I-O-U and sometimes Y - EBN/OZN (YSI)
MP3: Buffalo Gals - Malcolm McLaren (YSI)

Ruff Club is tonight.


Questions For Puerto Montt



Last day in California.

Victor Jara: A Chilean teacher, theatre director, poet, singer-songwriter, and political activist. Jara's like Nick Drake meets Devendra Banhart or something, combined with a less hippie-ish Donovan, and a more Spanish/less French Peter Sarstedt. Awesome!

MP3: Cuando Voy Al Trabajo - Victor Jara (YSI)
MP3: Te Recuerdo Amanda - Victor Jara ( YSI)
MP3: Preguntas Por Puerto Montt - Victor Jara (YSI)

New Photo blog:
Flight Reaction/Part Deux

Nothing posted on it yet. Name is sort of random.. Part Deux though, since it is, after all, my second blog.

Picture up top: À bout de souffle.


The time has come!



MP3: Music for Money - Nick Lowe (YSI)

Alas, I have a new computer. A sweet, dark, handsome machine. Complete with 250 gigs worth of space, Leopard, fancy photobooth options, et cetera.

What better way to celebrate than to post plenty of magnificent, futuristic, euro-wonderful italo disco by none other than Scotch? I suppose I could also post a few things from Deerhunter's latest... not quite the kind of music I'd like to listen to on account of a celebration.. but, you know. Solely coming back with Scotch isn't that interesting of a "comeback" post..

MP3: Disco Band - Scotch (YSI)
MP3: Penguins' Invasion - Scotch (YSI)
MP3: Take Me Up - Scotch (YSI)

From Microcastles, an album that I feel somewhat indifferent about- in comparison to the earlier Fluorescent Grey EP and Cryptograms- which I thought were amazing.
MP3: Nothing Ever Happened - Deerhunter (YSI)
MP3: These Hands - Deerhunter (YSI)

In LA at present. Sunny, dry, West-Coast-easy and enjoyable. Beats New York, especially since I go sans an a/c there.. Have some good pictures coming up. Keep an eye out.

If you haven't noticed the new blog look has been lightly influenced by 70's/80's movie classics... Blade Runner the inspiration for my new banner.




Haven't posted anything in quite a bit.

Still sans my computer..

MP3: Where Do You Go To My Lovely? - Peter Sarstedt (YSI)

I'd like to point out:
Thanks to this guy I have a temporary computer fix.
Still selling my turntables & oddyssey case (let me know if you're interested:
Have a new web address: (old address still works as well.)
You should go get BJM's new album.
Starting a photoblog eventually.. with photos like these.
Even though you'll wanna go here this coming Friday, you should still swing by Ruff Club.


MP3: Mr. Reporter - The Kinks (YSI)
MP3: What is Life - George Harrison (YSI)
MP3: Shadows (M83 Remix) - Midnight Juggernauts (YSI)

Sorry- for the infrequent posts.

MP3: The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkle (YSI)


And so



The benefit party begins..

at 10 tonight.

Too bad I don't have any mp3's for the hype machine to catch and re-direct me some readers... damnit!

See you there?
