Ouroborous Summer – Best of the Blogs – yum!

monkeyfish1

Dudes and dudettes, if you know any rain men please send them to Austin. I’m sick and tired of watering my yard to no effect. And I’m not talking special needs math wizards.

1. Howling Bells – Nightingale (Limited Time only)
This song is about to be played by radio stations around the world as it is tremendous. Off their sophomore album that boasts a couple other great songs.

2. Major Lazer – Keep it Goin’ Louder
This is also about to invade urban radio stations everywhere.

3. Clark – Talis
Perhaps the most exciting electronic musician working today returns with another album, Totems Flare. This isn’t the best song, but the album as a whole is groundbreaking artistry.

4. Julian Plenti – Only If You Run / Skyscraper
Interpol’s frontman goes solo and the results are astonishing.

5. Boy 8-Bit – Baltic Pine (Radio Edit)
Boy 8-Bit is maturing out of strictly party music as this sounds exactly as the title suggests.

6. VillA – Agneta
If you like Studio or Balearic this is for you.

7. One for the Team – Garden
Indie-rock gem that will worm its way into your head with its beautifully catchy two choruses. See below.

8. Friendly Fires – Paris (Computer Club’s Aeroplane vs. Au Revoir Simone)
Perfect summer dance jam that gets the girls dancing.

9. Flying Lotus – LTWRMX
Flying Lotus’s newest album is trying to capture those displaced DJ Shadow fans.

10. Vega – No Reasons
Austinite captures some disco magic with good vocals.

11. Wehbba – Cava
A cockroach shuffles under a radiation beam. And you dance to it.

12. IV – Alaska
80’s synths and 10’s beats.

13. Florence and the Machine – Rabbit Heart (Lionheart remix)
A remix for me has to be equal or better than the original. Florence is following in Bat For Lashes’ footsteps.

14. Renaissance Man – Aloha
More masterful minimal techno.

15. Karton – Phoenix
Electro-breaks confection.
