5 Tracks b4 the 4th
Girls' wistful summer-song, Lust for Life, is all last year and everything, but with their first EP on the horizon and the July heat bearing down on us northern hemisphereans, it's worth reiterating this little gem. Additionally, I must give a big-up to my collegiate contemporaries at True Panther Records. Have a listen here.
This week's morning bike rides to the metro station have consistently seen an iPod shuffle dance til I get to this Phaseone remix of Animal Collective's Daily Routine. Guten appetit.
And this spirited B-52s edit by Mike Simionetti. Mess-of-a-tanian.
And an even shorter, emptier introduction. Norse Horse - Swamp Trotter.
This epic track has carried me through many long-winded journeys around Beijing. Gargling ghosts peering down from ancient, stone architraves replace gawking migrant workers in front of concrete high-rises. IV - Alaska (The Place Where We Were Hidden).
