3 Tunes - Washed Out

A repost with the New Theory tune, but the Washed Out invasion of my stereo demands it. Fuzzy summer time jams that keep the kitsch in check. Just got some good exposure over at PTCHFRK so they should be on the up and up. Here are MakerooM's top three.

New Theory - Feel It All Around - You'll See

MDMAzing - Lee Frank

A track from late last year's Lee Frank, Electronic Frank release. MDMAzing is warm techno with huge synths and it's drug filled heart on it's sleeve. Paid a lot of attention to this tune last year, and has had a ahem* relapse as of late. Very deep tune.

Moderne Love - Unai

A bit of an older tune from Italian producer Unai. This has been a mixtape staple for a couple of years. Dirty strings and tweaked dub squeaks filter in and out of the uber-slick bassline. The groove lurching forward, slows up first to let in the dub flecked breakdown and then the smoked out chant of "Moderne Love" builds on it's steadily stacking sounds. Totally overlooked.

Moderne Love - Unai

Le Vent Nous Portera - Noir Desir (Rubber Room Rerub)

Rubber Room re-edit of French rock band Noir D├ęsir's 2001 song "Le Vent Nous Portera"
From the Mindless Boogie label. A very good tune.

Where Were U In 92' - ZOMBY

Here is the title track from Zomby's Where Were U In 92'?

Where Were U In 92'?

For Agent 13 - The Besnard Lakes

F.A.13 off of Besnard Lakes "The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse". The guys are rockers from MTL and have some lateral connection with Arcade Fire. It's a shame this album got so slept on. Quality..

Blind Man Can See It - James Brown

This is one mean mutha of a funk tune. Why the last couple minutes of this isn't the national anthem is beyond me.

Intervales Theme - Javelin

Great new album from Javelin. "Jams and Jemz" is full to the brim with good ideas, great beats, and enough one-liners for three LP's. Here is the Jay-Dee apeing Intervales Theme.

Condor Naturale

Also included the latin super hero theme of Condor Naturele.

Basic Space - The XX [Pariah Remix]

Pretty awesome fan-vid for the XX's Basic Space. MakerooM is offically on the bandwagon. Pariah has some Flying Lotus-esque tunes that are worth your time.

Things Will Never Be The Same Again - JJ

Another tune from the endlessly listenable JJ.

Things Will Never Be The Same Again

Cash Flow - Major Lazer (Classixx Glass Bottom Dub)

Classixx, whose hand at remixing Lisztomania garnered them an internet's worth of attention, are back. Here they bring their 80's hotel glamour to Mad Decent's Major Lazer project.

New Theory - Washed Out

Dreamy melancholy beats from South Carolina's Washed Out. We might be approaching critical mass with the wistful summer jams but hey, too much sugar is still sugar.

Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes - Paul Simon [Todd Terje Dub]

Todd Terje gives Diamonds a stretch, and a night out in the club. The original fading in and out of the groove like dreaming about a song you forgot you knew.

Teardrops - The XX (Womack & Womack)

Thought I would post another tune from London's The XX. MakerooM gave these coldhearted kids some love for their great Crystalised a few months ago, and their tunes have stayed in pretty heavy rotation. Here, they're revamping an 80's cheesepuff tune by Womack and Womack by stripping it down into something much darker, almost sinister. Think Portishead meets Eurythmics high on Qualudes. Very slick.

The XX - Teardrops MP3 here.

Expect an album out soon.

Rural Alberta Advantage - Frank AB

Canadian trio RAA use propulsive drums, earnest heartfelt vocals, tearjerking organ chords and soaring arrangements to great effect on their new LP Hometowns. The band is based in T.O with the singer coming from Alberta. Filled with moody Canadian imagery and stompy rowdiness, I hear almost a Blue Rodeo meets Neutral Milk Hotel. It might be too early to say, but this is in the running album of the year.
Featured song Frank,AB is really just my favorite track this hour. Every cut is worth your attention. Go buy this.

Frank, AB MP3 here.

Here is a fan vid for In The Summer.

Old Skool Video - De La Soul

De La's new mixtape,a 45 minute jogging tape for Nike, has me running for this criminally underrated classic from back in the day...

Ecstacy - JJ

Sincerely Yours's enigmatic artist JJ drops his full length N°2 without warning, available here. Here on highlight Ecstasy, (no pun intended), Lil Wayne's syrup-head Lollipop gets dragged underwater and rebuilt out of porcelain. The tweaked out Wayne beat is now inverted into something fragile and clean, and the lyrics are now coated in honey instead of purple dr'ank. A very cool tune...

Old School Video - Rise Up

It Don't Move Me No More - Peter Bjorn John X Miike Snow

PB&J (who made the whistling mega hit Young Folks) get a Underworldesque overhaul in what turns out to be a tech track full of surprises. Underworldish techno track splits apart as guitar bones take shape. Late ninties synth squiggles and the faux bored chants of "it don't move me no more" propel this from basic vocal techno to a very good maximalist pop tune.

It Don't Move Me MP3 here.
