Bonobo – Pelican

Look at the pelican fly … come on, pelican! There are a few artists that I feel like I can trust. Among them are people like Jamie xx, Dan Snaith and Simon Green(bka Bonobo). I know I can count on them to get my neurons fired up, and to offer something a little bit different then the plethora of tracks that seem to be carefully constructed to follow a specific schema. Here’s the latest single from Bonobo, Pelican. It’s the second cut from his forthcoming Flashlight EP, and the danciest of the bunch. The 12″ drops December 1st, pick it up.

Meteor fly-by during Modest Mouse concert in Texas.

Neat. Rad. Sweet… Just a few of the adjectives used on Reddit to describe this footage of a Shooting Star flying by during a Modest Mouse concert in Austin, Texas. The event occured while the band played it’s introspective “Dark Center of the Universe” which contains lines such as

I might disintegrate into the thin air if you’d like
I’m not the dark center of the universe like you thought

NASA’s is calling the meteor a fireball, based on the fact that it’s brighter than venus. I’m calling the meteor Andy, based on my favorite Parks and Recreation character. It’s always entertaining to experience eerie synchronicity at concerts, and I’m not talking about The Police, but rather something special. For example, when Radiohead played an outdoor show in Montreal during their In Rainbows tour, a rainbow popped up, just to mess with everyone.

Here’s the aforementioned Reddit post.

Dan Croll – From Nowhere (Âme Remix) (MP3)

Dan Croll’s ‘From Nowhere’ is a great of example of a song that has gained momentum and popularity over a long period of time. These days it’s not uncommon for a song to be popular for only a brief couple of days. Using that scale, I’d consider a couple of years to be “long”.

The British born singer-songwriter’s debut single was originally released on September 24th, 2012. It quickly found an audience through the blogs, Hype Machine and support from BBC Radio 1. I first heard the catchy indie-folktronic track outdoors on Montreal’s St-Laurent street, during a set by local Buck Smith. More specifically, it was Ben Gomori‘s dance friendly version (thanks Shazam).

About a year after it’s initial release, a remix by Baardsen was included on the soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto V. A game that you all know, and that has sales figures in the billions. Fast forward to a few months ago months ago and the song was uploaded to a new official Vevo channel, along with a freshly shot official video. But wait there’s more, the original mix can be now be heard in commercials for German shoemaker Deichmann. It’s only a matter of time before it’s used in a TV drama, if it hasn’t already happened.

Now lets talk about the Âme remix. A song that you see on charts and hear played out, but there’s no official release. Here’s a statement from Âme themselves:

as many people keep on asking for our remix of dan croll’s ” from nowhere ” we would like to inform you that the mangement of the artist didnt like our version and they even dont let us release this remix via our own channels. maybe you can send them some nice words to change their minds:-))))

There is actually an online petition to have this song released. Techno-activism at it’s finest. Anyways, we found this sketchy MP3, so at least you can bump it in your car or in your earbuds. While you’re Âme-ing it up, they also just dropped a phenomenal remix of Sailor & I’s – ‘Turn Around’
