Music Discovery #28 of 2012

A nice eclectic mix of music this week, and it’s really piling up since these posts are coming less frequently. I typically don’t pay much mind to videos but I like the one for Rush Midnight, and of course the song is great.

There are a couple other tracks I had to post YouTube videos for, as I couldn’t find other shareable versions in my initial searching. Remember, those won’t get picked up by the exfm player, so be sure to check those out manually.

Quite a bit this week, including a couple videos. The first is for Flying Lotus, I don’t really care for the song all that much, but the video is rad. The second, a Wye Oak remix that accompanied a dance on SYTYCD.

It’s been a couple weeks since my last post; more work travel to Madrid, sister finally introducing me to my new niece, life in general. Below are some great tunes I have compiled over the last couple weeks while all that was happening.

The new Matthew Dear album is available for streaming, comes out next week I believe… check it out below. Matthew Dear has such a fantastic and unique sound, and his music is distinctly his own. The Fighting Is Futile track is the biggest standout for me, of those from the album that I had not heard yet. I’ve linked a couple great tracks recently, Pipe Dreams and Crimewaves, and both are sadly absent from this album.

Pet Lions reminds me a bit of The Ocean Blue. The Ocean Blue – Cerulean was the first CD I ever bought, all the way back in 1991. The standout on that album was Ballerina Out Of Control, I have included it below for your education. As you may be able to tell, I have had this affinity for the intersection of shoegaze, surf, and indie rock for quite a while. Hope you enjoy it/them as much as I have over the years.

Please note that the exfm player doesn’t pick up YouTube links, or album streams from Soundcloud, so you’ll have to play those individually.
