enjoy music – as i used to say on my old old blog

Why I like this song: This is a tribute to our current economy.

2. Air France – Collapsing at Your Doorstep

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Why I like this song: It reminds me of Frontier Psychiatry by the Avalanches slightly in the quality of the sampling. It’s really a song you don’t have to put much effort into. It relaxes me.

3. Cassius – Toop Toop

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Why I like this song: I like this band despite their association with MC Solar. For some reason this song makes me think of someone galloping around on a broomstick. Or maybe that’s just something I want to do while listening to the song. At any rate I have just breached the TMI mark.

4. Gui Boratto – Take My Breath Away

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Why I like this song: I really like Gui Boratto’s earlier stuff. He basically creates minimalist electronic music and I have posted about him before in a Music Monday post. I also find his music very relaxing.

5. Justice – DVNO

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Why I like this song: It’s got just the right amount of funk to it. It reminds me a little of Daft Punk. Ever wanted to make your own Daft Punk remix? Check out najle.com/idaft.

6. The Blow – Parentheses

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Why I like this song: I burned the Blow for Diana and I have to admit I really like it. She deserves all the credit on this one (and probably a lot more that I have forgotten about :X I love you, Diana!). It’s very poppy and reminds me a bit of earlier Brunettes. As a side note, nothing in the deli aisle ever makes me cry.

7. The Faint – Fish in a Womb

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Why I like this song: This just sounds like something I’ve already blogged about back when I was living with Chris. I like the roughness around the edges.

8. Architecture in Helsinki – Maybe You Can Owe Me

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


Why I like this song: I have blogged about Architecture in Helsinki before and I included “Do the Whirlwind” on my first Indie CD. I must say I really like their album In Case We Die. It has been a while since I’ve listened to their stuff (several years), but I believe I don’t enjoy their newer music as much. I like them because they are different, yet catchy, and very enjoyable.
