Externalizing (October)

October 27, 2009 § 2 Comments



For to day we will have less discourse, more boom. That is why I chose the stormtrooper picture: bang bang, action action, sound sound. Here I present to you a list of tracks that I for some reason have been playing again and again, and again, the last couple of months. I mean, I have played these tracks too too much, so I have to externalize them here, to distance myself a bit, or better yet, just EXTERMINATE them like a sonic stormtropper, to clear the terrain: they … are.. mere..ly…. bits…..of….sou..nd…but..butbut… aaaaaahhh!!

The Flaming Lips – Silver Trembling Hands (yet another weird psychedelic battle theme for pink robots! I can hear the intro a hundred times over, how can a scream and a cymbal followed by pumping bass be so good?)

Nite Jewel – What Did He Say (dark and milky disco)

Deleted Scenes – Ithaca (drifty indie folk with beautiful vocal passages)

Washed Out – Feel It All Around (dreamy sounds of balearic beaches)

Memory Tapes – Bicycle (and the dream continues… and it gets darker… and it builds into an electro track)

Tigercity – Powerstripe (falsetto disco electro pop)

Deerhunter – Agoraphobia (ghostly indie lullaby)

Shahs – Handreader (surf funk ambient indie)

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart – Higher Than The Stars (slightly noisy indie pop sounding very swedish)

    True, and that one sounds even more swedish to me. Check out the Higher than the stars EP if you haven’t already, it’s pretty good, and a bit noisier/rawer than the album too.
