I love when good music just falls into my inbox. Such was the case with the Chicago based duo Coltrane Motion. Take Matt & Kim, mix in a little Silversun Pickups, then sprinkle a little 60′s pysch on top, and voilá, you have yourself an awesome “electronic noise-pop duo”, who’s main goal seems to be to get you off your butt and dancing. I’m sure they pack up a punch in their live shows too, so if you get the chance, check ‘em out.
Enfant Terrible: a French term for a child who is terrifyingly candid by saying embarrassing things to adults, especially parents. The Webster’s Dictionary also defines an enfant terrible as an unusually successful person who is strikingly unorthodox, innovative, and/or avant-garde.
What would we do without Wikipedia?
With songs chock-full of blips and bleeps, and the occasional solo that sounds like a child with ADD, who has yet to learn the meaning of the mute button on their Game Boy, I suppose you could call We Are Enfant Terrible avant-garde. Sound a little too much? Layer the song with an awesome synth baseline and some 80′s kick drums, and you barely even notice because your so busy two-stepping around the house. So be on the lookout, it wouldn’t suprise me one bit if these guys ended up on a Kitsuné compilation….the sound is right up their alley.
OK, so it’s a couple weeks old. I hadn’t been to Kissey‘s site for awhile, but was happy to find this nice little Christmas present that she had gifted to all her fans. HAHA, I like the word gifted, it makes me feel sophisticated when I say it . Oh well, enjoy “Holiday”, you can pick it up here! By the way, production was done by a dude named Hollywood Raff.
Looks like your not the only one with racing stripes Kansky!
Really? It’s kind of hard to go wrong with a line-up like this, and if “Gifted” doesn’t get you hooked, then I’m sure one of the tracks from N.A.S.A‘s upcoming release (Feb. 17th) will…just check the guest appearances. Can’t wait…

OHHH….and just because I love Bossa Nova, here is a “Girl From Ipanema” remix from them as well.
I love the video for Fortune…
How I wish I was at Le Poisson Rouge tonight to see Little Dragon. Oh, and I’m really not sure how this remix passed me up for so long. It’s a totally different take on the song, but I’m digging Toddla T‘s grimy sound!
