The latest episode of futuremusics magazine Resident Advisor’s podcast series is a Halloween themed selection from Fever Ray’s Karin Dreijer Andersson and other members of her current touring band.
As you would expect, it’s awesome. It starts off with and instrumental, abstract Neil Young instrumental. Uh, yeah.
RA178 – Fever Ray
Absolutely love the way this one peels out of its breakdowns. This is a surefire set opener.
Boy 8-Bit – Cricket Scores

Just found this Metronomy remix of Joakim’s disco-nouveau jammer ‘Spiders’. Forgoing his usual wacky shenanigans (which tend to err on the miss side of the hit-miss continuum), the French producer shoots this one right up into space and lands it in a restrained chaos of zipping arpeggios and epic pads. A nice execution of emotionally heightened melody builds betraying their perfectly distilled synthetic creation.
I don’t want to lose it
You don’t want to leave it
I don’t want to fake it
You don’t want to say it.
Joakim – Spiders (Metronomy Remix)

LCD Soundsystem’s new track, is, as most LCD Soundsystem tracks are for me, entirely under-whelming upon first listen. Then, in two weeks, it will have racked up a hundred fifty listens and iTunes and I’ll have an entire DJ set centered on it.
LCD Soundsystem – Bye Bye Bayou
God bless you, creative commons. A recent youtube search for Atlas Sound’s new utterly gorgeous collaboration with Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier brought up this gem of archive footage – an 8 plus minute video catalog of various housewares and furniture from the golden age of American industrial design. Giggidy!
The track on its own is no slouch either, all swirling synths and fuzzed out guitars that neither Bradford Cox, nor Sadier are any stranger to in their respective bands.
