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

Matthew Dear – Neighborhoods


Funky mid tempo dance track.   Matthew Dear is a top act in the emerging “micro-house” scene.   Basically micro-house is, according to the wiki on Microhouse, “a subgenre of house and glitch music …Microhouse strips house music down to a more minimal and sparse aesthetic, in the same vein as tech house.”.   I love the dead pan vocals on this track.

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.
