Lamb – Another Language

Sooooo good to have Lamb back in action again.  It’s been ages, to be exact eight years, since we’ve heard from them and they do not  disappoint  on their latest effort, entitled, “5” (as in their  fifth studio album).  They still have that deep  throbbing bass in their sound, but now it’s topped with bit-crushing drums sounds as opposed to the more traditional drum n bass sounds that adorned their early work.   Vocalist Lou Rhodes sounds as good as always.

Black Light Dinner Party – Older Together (Video)

Just got the heads up from the band that they just released their video for “Older Together”.  Read here for my previous write-up on the band.  Side note from the band, “It was shot by  dreambear with a little bit of help from  Lomography.”

Paul Simon – Love is Eternal Sacred Light (Odd Year Remix)



I just completed this remix and thought it fit for sharing.  Over at indabamusic, they have the stems available for Paul Simon’s latest release, Love is Eternal Sacred Light, from which I grabbed the vocals tracks and left the rest to create this upbeat, dance floor friendly version.  As soon as I heard his vocals for this track, I could hear the remix I could work around them with.  I love the sound of Paul Simon’s voice set against an electronic backing track and push forward.  See what you all think…
