“..on the beach, on the ocean of my dreamscape only in my dreams”

It’s like homemade lo-fi Beach boys right? The best part is the chorus I think, but the guitar throughout makes the track. The video is worth watching to see the humour in the song, and look out for the Dam Funk track on the album too.

Only in My Dreams 0:40 – 1:04

From Mature Themes, released through 4AD Records, 2012

“everything and nothing stays the same, the only rule, I know, is not to follow”

In LA, there is a lot of great radio, the best is KCRW I think. I’d always known about Garth Trinidad who plays all that classic soul and rare 70’s stuff I love, but it was later in the evening and this was a house show, which I’ve since looked up to discover is a show put on by Raul Campos. So we’re heading home after dinner, and on comes this track. All I can think about is what makes radio so great, and how everybody is jamming to this classic sounding deep house track at the exact same moment. This track is even more warm than the weather out there.

And the best part, gotta be that synth wash at the :20 mark below…

House will never die! Let the brosteppers and Skrillex get all that commercial money. This is the real deal electronic music being made right now in 2012.

Show Me featuring Elzi Hall 1:28 – 2:02

“sentimental, heartbreaking, everything’s my fault”

Shout to JT for peeping me to this. I bet these guys are trippers. This song is really cool. I hope you don’t think it cuts off at the end of the clip because the part at the end of the best part is pretty awesome. But hey, the beginning part is wicked too and I can’t post the whole song. Bloggin’ ain’t easy, ya dig!?

3:06 – 3:57
