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)
