I just love the concept, sound, and look of what these Mass./ Brooklyn guys release. This time around for UUU tapes its Nem270, Bosnian producer Nemanja Gostimirovic. He is residing now in Ottawa. Desktop Pain is an odds and ends EP drawn from a massive library of unused/weird Nem270 instrumentals selected by Triple You Tapes. Nem270 has produced tracks for Lil B, Main Attrakionz, Squadda B, Mondre, Shady Blaze, Yarrow Slaps, Western Tink to name but a few…listen to his For the girl, our favorite off his ‘Desktop pain’.

Check out our beloved Young Magic with his fabulous debut album, ‘Melt’ (out on Feb. 14 on Carpark). The band just premiered its second official music video for “Night In The Ocean” and a remix of “Sparkly” by Matthewdavid. You can also check out a recent In The Open session the band taped in the woods near San Francisco here
Got a mail from our long time acquaintance Kevin Greenspon (founder of Bridgetown records); ..”I have a new collaboration with French artist Matthieu Séry that I feel is the finest visual representation of my work to date. It is a music video for my songs “Barring Will” and “Paradise A.D.” that I’ve been playing on tour lately and are from my latest CD”. Purchase HERE
Watch the incredible documentary made by Swedish company House of Radon about the direction of art in the digital era we are at. Great photography, sight and sound, and whats most important the human touch in this sterile age. Performances by Moby, Olafur Arnalds, Hot Chip, Robyn and lots more. A must for all of you….besides.. at these times of the SOPA cloud, this is presented to you free of charge.
If you are a Grouper fan, I know you are going to dig this big time. Coming from Bathetic records, Alicia Merz‘s Birds of Paradise project stands out in its beauty. ‘Winter Lady‘ sounds as if coming from another world, ethereal and peaceful, so gentle and pure, almost asking you not to touch, just to stand back and listen because of it’s fragility. 5$ for a heavenly gift – I’ll leave the decision to you guys.
