💭 Thinking about how 🔥 these new songs are 🎛
Pretty stoked to present...my photograph is the new album cover for Weezer - Pacific Daydream (also used as the landing page for the album on their website.) That's my awesome niece Emme on the swing...:) Stacey Newman Photographer & Writer
The Avalanches-Wildflower (Modular/Astralwerks 2016) 2000’s plunderphonic hero’s return. I mean, the even the cover looks riffed/lifted from Sky & The Family Stone’s There’s a Riot Going On!
From the earliest days of rap, through Art of Noise, the Dust Brothers work on Paul’s Boutique, through to DJ Shadow, X-Ecutioners and other turntablists of the early 2000s and even GirlTalk, C/P sampling and found sound music has always appealed to me. Even a good mashup, when applied properly can be a thing of beauty (Metallica+Lady Gaga=Genius). It stems from hearing stuff you know in a new context, mixed with stuff you have to dig for. There are plenty of sampledelic bits to dig into, in addition to the guest appearances by Biz Markie, Danny Brown, Father John Misty, Toro y Moi and more. I suppose that is a long way to go just to say, this is a fun record to crate dig, listen, and relax to. (filed between Austra and The B-52s)
