That Work - Act Like You Know

I just got inspired. Maybe it's because this track is blazing hot white mother-fuckin fire.

The Fresh and Onlys - Presence of Mind

alex on November 26 2012

My apartment is either freezing cold or molten lava hot... Why must I live inside a hot pocket? For those international listeners not familiar with Hot Pockets they are an American snack which comes frozen and consists of a bread pocket(wouldn't be American without bread) and stuffed with processed meats from exotic animal regions such as pig throat and anus then as a final touch a processed cheese made from chemicals is mixed in there. Really they're quite tasty but cooking them is an art only the most determined can accomplish. Your first hot pocket will go something like this - Cook for instructed time - remove Hot Pocket from microwave - take a bite into the well-cooked, tasty, flaky exterior only to find you've hit a wall of thick Antarctic glacier on the interior. You tell yourself obviously it hasn't cooked long enough, maybe 30 seconds more? Yes good - let’s try this again. Everything looks good, the cheese and meat interior is melted and no longer resembling a prehistoric wooly mammoth trapped in ice. You go in for the bite "mmMMM-LORD HAVE MERCY MY MOUTH IS IN FLAMES." You then have first degree burns in your mouth and can't taste anything for a week. And the funny thing is... it's all worth it.

Casket Girls - Sleepwalking

alex on November 25 2012

Apparently the 3 day food coma exists and is alive and well inside my body. In other news: Check out Casket Girls - hailing from where Chris and myself learned all about art, amphetamines, and ghettos - Savannah GA. It should also be noted Ryan Graveface from Black Moth Super Rainbow is a band member and well that’s just darn neat.

Today was one of those days where you feel like the universe just wants to work against you at every turn. Finding this track was probably the highlight of my day.

Kate Boy - Northern Lights

chris on November 14 2012

Hey Alex! I have plenty of excuses. This track is probably a mistake to post because it has the capability of becoming disgustingly popular to the point where if I hear it anymore I'll jump out of my 4th story apartment window. Crap shoot.

SBTRKT - Hold On (feat. Sampha)

Alex on November 14 2012

SBTRKT is always a pretty safe bet. The lack of posts on my end is indicative of how hard I'm working on the new version of left as rain. Chris has no excuse.

PAPA - Put Me To Work

Alex on November 10 2012

Sort of an Arcade Fire feel, no? Regardless - classic weekend track. In other news: You know it's Winter in New York when youre surrounded by couples on the train. What is it about Winter that causes people to bun up in relationships? "Hey, its getting pretty cold outside - I'm marginally good looking and so are you. Let's hibernate."
