David Lynch’s “Good Day Today”

Article: David Lynch’s “Good Day Today”

David Lynch released an uncharacteristically electronic single called “Good Day Today” on iTunes. It’s not as pleasing to my ear as his film soundtrack work with Angelo Badalamenti or Julee Cruise, nor as cool as the kind of hazy oldies sounds he created with Dangermouse & Sparklehorse on Dark Night Of The Soul. Still, as…

Malachai “Return To The Ugly Side”

Article: Malachai “Return To The Ugly Side”

Malachai is the most bizarre band I know of from the UK, and possibly the strangest act on a label in the Western hemisphere. I first stumbled on them watching the unreleased (in the US) Eva Green Ryan, Phillippe, Sam Riley film “Franklyn,” which is pretty strange in itself. They had a captivating song in…

Spike Jonze’s Arcade Fire Video Is A Bleak Portrayal of “The Suburbs”

Article: Spike Jonze’s Arcade Fire Video Is A Bleak Portrayal of “The Suburbs”

Spike Jonze’s vision of “The Suburbs” is at first a very familiar one with big open skies, endless subdivisions, fast food parking lots and enough fences and walls to shut out the rest of the world. Who needs the rest of the world when everything you want is right there? But Jones, inspired by The…

It’s been almost a month since I’ve written about “Tron: Legacy” or about Daft Punk’s score for the long awaited sequel to the original 1982 film, which was notable both for it’s ground breaking visuals as well as it’s score by synth pioneer Wendy Carlos.

Article: Exclusive Premiere: Röyksopp “Senior Living”

“Senior” is Röyksopp’s chill follow up to 2009′s dance album, “Junior.” The Norwegian electronica duo recorded the albums at the same time, but “Senior” is the mellow instrumental counterpart — the ambient music playing in the freak out room when your legs give out from the space invader dance stomping across the floor. This short…

If you have a weakness for vanilla MIDI beats and soaring duets with cheesy rhymes, you’ll love “Hold My Hand,” the first single off of the King of Pop’s forthcoming album, “Michael.” It’s like a cool breeze billowing the tiny umbrella in your fruity drink on the deck of a cruise ship somewhere between Jamaica…
