"Din DaaDaa" by George Kranz
from Some 12" accapella I think
Found a little bit of this song tucked into a mix by Jon Santos. Some other highlights of what is a giddy, breathless set perfect for preventing the act of concentration are: BIS, Domino, Farley JackMaster Funk, and Cat Stevens. Dive in and download the whole thing or go to the ever so cute site where it lives to get a smaller windows media version or see the tracklist.
Worst at sorting those genres out...isn't there a tutorial?
"All" by Moodyman
from Black Mahogani
Feelin' really guilty about lurking around for the DL's, I gotta lay it down. Been listening to this album a lot over the past 2 months loud in my living room but recently took a stoney ride in a fast VW down HWY 1 and re-heard this deep dubby soulful groove album for its clean eurosoul aspects. That's how I came to jam it out loud at work today for my office associates. Swear there is a Marvin Gaye vocal sample on there, hit me if you know.
"papa was a rolling stone" by the tempations
from psychedelic shack? not sure on that
really the thing about this song is hearing it on the jukebox last night at abby's birthday party. starts real quiet and builds up all intense and atmospheric and then that song rolls the soul right on in. i still had it in my head this morning and had to pull out an old mix tape to hear it again.
"all" by anthony brown's asian american orchestra
from monk's moods
pretty nice stuff right here, no matter how hokey. i haven't heard the original monk stuff and i'm pretty sure it was more daring but this is nice to work to. mostly quiet with all kinds of interesting sounding instruments.
"all, esp. Ananaias" by John Fahey
from Red Cross
Man oh man. Listened to this album into the wee hours last night, while the house, and the city, was quiet. I felt like I was receiving a message. Put it on again this morning (or, when I woke up around noon) and have been listening to it pretty much all day except for the occasional break to hear to a TOTD post or a R. Wyatt download as they come in. I keep hearing more and more. He pulls my attention and my heart actually quickens as I realize where he's off to next and don't care how he's going to bring us back, if at all. And then the last song (not counting the secret track) comes on, Untitled With Rain, and its so beautiful with some kind of giant sounding church organ and cars driving through puddles that I don't want it to end so I start it all over again.
"NPR Remix" by My Friend Phil
I was trying to decide whether yesterday's Soundtrack of Our Lives acoustic jam (one appropriate for a sunny Golden Gate Park love-in) at Amoeba or last night's heavily rocking and mindblowing performance by Sigur Ros at the Paramount would win for TOTD when I heard this remix a friend made. I hate to think that this is the "US" that nobody's ready to deal with. Careful, it might make you hungry.
"Electric Dreams" by Moroder and Oakley
from Electric Dreams Soundtrack
Not much to say about this electro semi-ballad except that I can't believe its not a re-rule, especially since I've been reruling it all month since I picked it up at Rasputins in Pleasant Hill (for a dollar, of course).
"unknown" by Sin Si Samuth and Huy Meas
from can't read Cambodian
By the end of today, I'll be an aunt. That means there's a baby getting born right now, which means I'm really mixed up today about the state of the world. Out of some sort of escapism, I can only listen to the brightest pop music, and nothing with english lyrics. I can't wait to sing such sweet melodies to that little squirrel. This is off a tape I brought back from Cambodia so you'll have to turn it up!
"Lay Your Hands On Me" by Thompson Twins
from Here's to Future Days
Pulled this off the shelf for no reason in particular and, while there are many well made pieces all over this album, in all its Top 40 glory, I never realized what a simply beautiful song this is.
"Nights of Arabia" by Miro Miroe
I'm actually sitting in my room, but I'd LIKE to be listening to this club hit cruising in a car right now--especially on this sunny day. Purely synth, with orchestration, bass, and a firey, ravaging, synth saxaphone screaming through it (even in the electro re-mix, they left that in). Picked this up in Gilroy, BTW.
