Candie Payne – By Tomorrow

Candie Payne hails form Liverpool and has that revival Motown sound I love, think Amy Winehouse and The Pipettes meets St. Etienne.   This track would fit nicely on a James bond sound track, I’m of course taking about a 1960’s Sean Connery, “BOND, JAMES BOND” version.

Mocean Worker – Shake ya Boogie

 Nice mix of samples, loops and real instrumentation. This track mixes 1930’s swing/Cab Calloway coolness, old big band music, electronic wizardry, and modern beats.

This track is taken off of Mocean Workers fifth album called appropriately enough, “Cinco De Mowo

Animal Collective – Peacebone

This track from Animal Collective is from their newest album Strawberry Jam which was released yesterday (Sept 10, 2007).

Layers on top of layers of noisy, scratchy, glitchy, music that builds and colescest into a bubbling fun choirs.   The vocals on this track remind me alot of   They Might Be Giants.
