Despite my efforts to start this blog as a separate home for all my music musings, I’ve just been too busy to keep up with it (the real world is a busy place).
SO, my music musings will go back on my personal blog, which was mostly music-related anyway.
Feel free to follow me there at grabthegusto. Same shit, more kittens.
“Future Sick” - Neon Indian
I’m so glad my friend bailed on me on Friday, giving me three hours to kill. Because AS A RESULT, I walked over to Webster Hall and decided to try to get a ticket at the door for the Neon Indian + Com Truise + Purity Ring show. Even though I learned it was sold out, someone offered me an extra ticket for 20 bucks after overhearing I was looking for one.
The world is good sometimes.
So, I spontaneously went to a show, alone. I think I slightly sympathize with creepers now. STILL, the show was incredible. And being there totally spontaneously made it even better. So here is “Future Sick” by Neon Indian. This one in particular was a standout performed live.
(reblogged from my personal blog)
"Lovers in Love" - Portugal. The Man
Seeing them tomorrow!
Sync is a “circular looping animation projection installation” by Max Hattler.
It is incredible. If you need convincing, here’s a further description:
Sync “is based on the idea that there is an underlying unchanging synchronisation at the centre of everything; a sync that was decided at the very beginning of time. Everything follows from it, everything is ruled by it: all time, all physics, all life. And all animation.”
"Wood" - ROSTAM
This track comes from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij. It’s very eastern-influenced and unique, so have a listen.
"Sick With It" - Moderat
Lately, I’ve been on a bit of a Modeselektor and an Apparat kick. As a result, I had to check out their collaborative album they did under the name Moderat. It feels a lot like a Modeselektor album to me in that it’s all over the place, in a good way, and I suppose it’s a bit more melodic thanks to the input of Apparat.
This track is a standout to me. It’s very unique and strange—things Modeselektor often excels at being—and it’s just a very addictive and quirky little jam.
