Mid Week Grab Bag

Chiho Aoshima - Sky (2006)

As titled, a bunch of tunes I dig from a grab bag of genres. Get yer eyes and ears some deliciousness. Commix to start with their combo of new and old skool drum & bass sensibilities. This one stands out because it's the only track from the LP with a full vocal accompaniment. Ad it works really really well

Everybody's favourite Norwegians again (sorry A-Ha). It's actually been a while since I've heard this one, and while I was digging found there was some controvesy between Torbjorn and a previous band he was in called Drum Island. Thought that this track and one of theirs called Lift were too similar, really it's pretty much because they both use the same sample. Still a solid string the to 'Sopp's bow.

And finally some more chillwave goodness courtesy of Ford & Lopatin from back when they were called Games. This was actually the first song of theirs I heard and I was taken immediately, that was four years ago and I'm still stunned by how fresh it sounds, it's very well put together.
