Swing Republic Gets On the Downbeat w/ Bing Crosby

Here’s a jubilant reworking of some Bing Crosby samples, framed anew in a modern disco setting. It’s fun, it’s wacky, it’s not really jazz but it swings alright! “On the Downbeat (feat. Bing Crosby)” is sure to make the cats’ ears twitch and the doggies’ paws tap.

Dodo – “Kashmir Yam Boys” (mp3)

Dodo – “Kashmir Yam Boys” (play)

Most chillaxin’ boogie-maxin’ waxin’ dubmatic on the super elastic bubble plastic. Whut? Yes, kittins, here we find an instrumental joint from London’s own Dodo, and it is fresh-tarded. Tabla-esque drummie patterns carry wind and string synthy tones on a wander through the middle and far east. Sounds rather like Asian Dub Foundation ate pot cookies with Jan Hammer and couldn’t stop giggling. Props to Subverse for the tip, I wouldna evar found this w/o his ever valiant digital vigilance. Another musical gift from the gr8 Interwhatnot, for your enjoyment, because we can. Byeee

A Voodoo Trombone Rocksteady Crew

The Voodoo Trombone Quartet – “(Hey You) The Rocksteady Crew” mp3

I do love me some trombones. And I do adore a good rocksteady beat. And we know how a sweet ska tune can put the cherry on top of a nice spring morning. So here you have it, the UK’s  Voodoo Trombone Quartet with “(Hey You) The Rocksteady Crew” – a joyous outburst of dubtastic skanking glee. And that’s a good thing.

Stereo de Luxe’s “Favorite Radio” is mine too!

Stereo de Luxe – “Favorite Radio” mp3

Take a delicious trip thru new wave ear candy-land, with the perpetually cool Stereo de Luxe. So damn good. So very pop. Uplifting, even! This is music to blow away the dark clouds of existential despair, and replace them with shiny rainbows of happy existential absurdity. Go forth and amplify. Tip o’ the cap to my number one electronic music guru, the one the only Subverse.
