Not really sure where Manganese Madness came from but I’m seriously vibing on this track. Dane is all that has been released from his project so far, and I guess he’s on this label called Eight Nerve Records which I sincerely hope will put something out for Manganese Madness on vinyl form in the future. The bass is prominent, and the overdriven chorus is “to die for”.
I will always associate Grouper with the ocean and it is through mathematics I can relate to her music. Liz Harris has always found a way to make her music linger in an almost but not quite evanescent state, placing one into some sort of ‘heavenly purgatory’. Alien Observer howls from the deep and pushes forward with a powerful, melodic energy as the signal approaches the ears. Grip the dual LP now from Forced Exposure before they are gone forever.
The following image is a page of notes from my Wave Mechanics class. It explains through mathematics how much water (Kg/s) is being transferred forward toward the shore, assuming a known wave height and wave depth. The integral that allows us to divide wave energy in Joules/meter by celerity is given at the bottom.
Kayla had told me not too long ago that she was putting together a new video for my favorite Chicago dream pop band BIGCOLOUR (the music of Brian Brissart) and it’s finally here. I’m pretty stoked on this video, Kayla no doubt has a knack for creative visuals. In addition, the song itself gives the notion of the blissful change from spring to summer.
I really have to thank my friend Jorge for turning me on to this goldmine of spacial perpetual lo-fi jams, Casino Gardens just released their C24 on Beer On The Rug, which is also Beer On The Rugs first release. These tracks are bringing me back to around this time last year when I was listening to Rangers and Forest Swords a lot, so it seems as though the subtle hypnagogic pop has cosmically found its way back to me just in time for summer.
I’m seriously vibing on these electronic Corduroi tracks. Each track on this album flows into the next, and also the video for All Ways below is pretty epic. This post is for all those times you saw some hottie on the street and wonder if you’d ever see them again, because that’s pretty much what goes through my mind when I listen to these tracks.
