The Blizzard -- Iselilja

You wanted a sexy electric fiddle at the end of a badass trance song. I could smell it.

Zero 7 -- Medicine Man

I love Eska. Beta wasn't sure about her voice, but these tracks are the best on the album.

Class Actress -- Careful What You Say

Sure, maybe I went alphabetically to the next artist for today's post, but you're the one who's reading this lame blog. ;3

Clams Casino -- Waterfalls

I can't explain it but I love this kind of stuff. Chill and really awesome.

Monday, November 14, 2011

Capsule -- Prime Time

Sorry, but Japan has terrible copyright laws. That said, this song is ballin'.

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Armin Van Buuren -- This World is Watching Me

You wanted more trance, right? The full version is much superior (isn't it always?) but the video is adorable. :3

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Tokyo Jihen -- Osca

Yes, it's weird. But at the same time, it works so beautifully. That second coming is also the stuff of dreams. Race car dreams. >:3

Tycho -- Dive

I almost always prefer the long versions but if an 8-minute song scares you, the single version is good too.

Jack Wall -- The Forest and the Swamp

Obscure soundtracks from games from the early 2000's? That doesn't sound like me at all.

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Metric -- Satellite Mind

Probably my favorite track of Fantasies. Weird and pretty cool, with a great bridge.

Forest Swords -- Hjurt

2:10-2:45. This is the reason I live my life. Ugh, brain matter everywhere.

Saturday, October 29, 2011

White Sea -- Mountaineer

Not a perfect song by any means but I love the layering of the vocals. :3

Friday, October 28, 2011

TyDi -- Good Dream

Good in all its forms, but the vocal sample of the original really sends a shiver down my spine.

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Simian Mobile Disco -- Pinball

Yeah, this is a bomb song. Too bad the featured vocalists (Telepathe) is pretty bad without the slick production. Oh well. Dance anyway. :3

Dead Disco -- Automatic

That's right. I find stuff no one's heard of from bands that made 4 songs. I'm going to sip my PBR ironically as I bop my head off-tempo with the AWESOME MUSIC.

Ellen Allien -- Abstract Pictures

Ellen Allien is just so talented I can't even stand it. Her understanding of minimalist industrial synth is incredible and her vocal work--even if she doesn't have a perfect voice--is so spot on. Love.

Dum Dum Girls -- It Only Takes One Night

I'm such a hipster, right? Too bad this is such an earworm. :P

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Cursor Miner -- Errors in My Mind

Creepy and epic at the same time. Also pretty nice lyrics, in an extended metaphor kind of way.

Metric -- Calculation Theme

Deceptively simple, with an endless, effortless synth line. It really is an amazing track and one of my favorites by Metric.

Pink Martini -- Lilly

Not the song I wanted to share today, but the one I wanted (Yuuzuki by Pink Martini, featuring Saori Yuki) isn't on youtube. If I knew how to make videos, I would. It's a fantastic song and Saori-san's voice is haunting.

No doubt this song is also quite adorable and catchy, but again, it wasn't what I wanted for today.

Furcast -- Grey is Old

Creepy and weird, with a beautiful atmosphere. I don't know what this is or what Furcast calls this genre, but I wish they'd make more of it.

Savannah -- Body Lotion (Jorn Van Deynhoven Remix)

Uplifting trance at its finest. Like staring up a a clear blue sky as a cool breeze catches you by. Stunning

Basia Bula -- Little Waltz

After days of trance, house, and general electro, it was time to slow down. Here's a beautiful waltz, by the immensely talent Basia Bulat. I'm multi-faceted really!

Moguai - Optinuum

Thumpin' and aggressively beautiful.

Tommy february6 -- KISS ONE MORE TIME

Maybe the perfect song? Definitely one of Tomoko Kawase's best solo singles. It's just so cute.

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Laid Blak -- Red (Chasing Shadows Remix)

If you think dubstep is evil, don't click. If you're up for a good drop, though.... >:]

Friday, September 23, 2011

Susumu Hirasawa -- Berserk

Hirasawa-sensei really is a master. This is an epic sound with a weird vibe. Perfect.

Sphaera -- Front

Sexy, dark, and weird. Imagine the dirty things you could do to a beat like this.

Monday, September 19, 2011

Blouse -- Into Black

It's dark and sexy. What else do you need?

Magic D -- Someday

Yes, this is cheating. The "Happy Hardcore" version isn't even a real remix. But it's the one I prefer.

Plus, any song where the lyrics lead to "I don't want to go insane" is good in my books. :D

X-Perience -- A Neverending Dream

Okay, so I only found this after Cascada covered it, but I like this version more. No spoken word, no auto-tune, outdated samples....

Class Actress -- Someone Real

I'm not sure what this is but I'm pretty happpy about it. So much so that I had an extra P.

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Wolfgang Voigt -- Apathie

As Beyonce once taught us, eternal handclaps are creepy. The rest of this haunting track is just gravy. ;3

Julianna Barwick -- The Magic Place

Ethereal and haunting, it's like Enya without the cheese.

Perfume -- レーザービーム

Today at work, I whistled this the entire time. I'm sure my coworkers love me.

Thursday, September 8, 2011

Marit Larsen -- Under the Surface

I've loved Marit Larsen since M2M. What a nerd. Still, gosh. What a good song.

Glasser -- Apply

Probably my favorite song of 2010. This gets so stuck in my head. :U

Monday, September 5, 2011

Forest Swords -- Miarches

Creepy, sexy, cool. I listen to this type of stuff late at night while driving. So good.

Sunday, September 4, 2011

Basia Bulat -- The Shore

I don't know why but this song breaks my heart. It's so amazing, with the auto-harp and her voice....

Saturday, September 3, 2011

Death Cab for Cutie

I hate male vocals and I get really annoyed by Ben Gibbard and his verbose lyrics. Yet somehow.... This one though, is all about the amazing "intro." Yum.

So What Is This

I'm Eric. I post a song that's been stuck in my head all day. It's a weird world in here.

So today? Austra. <3
