It was a very good week for my downtempo addiction. My music sites were bursting with electronic grooves of the sort which I don't stumble across very often any more (whither art thou, O Massive Attack?)
Gorilla vs. Bear posted a couple of "best songs of the year" lists today (a few days ago it was "best albums of the year") and the result was a few low-key gems.
Sunset: "Man's Heart Complaint" (INSTANT LOVE)
Invisible Conga People: "Cable Dazed"
From I'm Waking Up To... :
School of Seven Bells: "Half Asleep" (my song obsession of the week)
Indiemuse slipped me a little Caribou: "Sandy"
But it wasn't all digital clicks and pops. Daytrotter was in rare form this week.
Damien Jurado: "Ohio"
Takka Takka: "Everybody Say"
Shelley Short: "Swimming"
And one more, again from Gorilla vs. Bear: Alela Diane, "White as Diamonds." Lovely.
