[QUICK MIX] Above & Beyond - Robot Heart Yoga: Burning Man 2014 (Free Download)

  Many depict Burning Man to be this wild and crazy party in the desert. And it is. But Burning Man is much, much more than just booze and music at 4:30 AM on another planet. It’s also art and creativity, human emotion and expression, highs and lows, and anything else you can imagine. One […]

[THE DAILY SWIM] Oh Wonder – “Body Gold” (Louis The Child Remix)

[THE DAILY SWIM] Oh Wonder - "Body Gold" (Louis The Child Remix)

  Welcome to The Daily Swim, a running series on The Sights and Sounds. As a daily swimmer, water has always served as a dichotomy to my psyche – wholly and unswervingly calming in it’s vast simplicity yet at the same time able to harness and create massive amounts of energy. Which is exactly the […]

[AMBIENT/EXPERIMENTAL] Anjou – “Anjou” Album Review

anjou - anjou_featured

  Satellites erode, collide, and emit, adding ever more debris to the morass already orbiting the earth. Read about it: it’s a thick film surrounding us, and may have already reached critical mass to accumulate indefinitely. Bits of metallic, electric nuggets speed around the planet, a harsh inorganic environment set against the backdrop of sub-zero […]

[DOWNTEMPO HOUSE/DISCO] FIGGY – YOU WERE MINE

figgy-missing you

  In the realm of dance music and electronic producers, there definitely seems to be a theme of this chilled-out, easy-going theme of relaxed beats, slowed down house, and funky/soul/R&B undertones and rhythms. The popularity of vocal edits and vocal samples is truly changing the way beats and instrumental dance tracks are created. There is so […]

[QUICK MIX - CHILL/MELODIC HOUSE] unueberlegt - "Schmetterlingseffekt (Butterfly Effect)" [Free Download]

  I was completely lost at what exactly the title of this mix was trying to tell me, so thank goodness for 21st century tech like Babel Fish. What I found out were two things. The first is that “Schmetterlingseffekt” translated to “Butterfly Effect” – the title of this 2+ hours of bliss – and […]

[DARK INDIE/SLOWCORE] The Antlers – Familiars (Album Review)

featured

  The Antlers surprise us with every release, showing above all how much devastatingly beautiful diversity is possible within a relatively constrained stylistic range. Their break from 2009’s lo-fi dark-indie Hospice to 2011’s orchestral, atmospheric Burst Apart was greater than their latest shift to Familiars, but departs lyrically, instrumentally, and sonically in ways that expand […]

[ELECTRONIC / DEEP HOUSE] EDX – Breathin’ (Extended Vocal Mix)

avatars-EDX 500x500

  You’re riding shotgun in the imaginary convertible driven by the boyfriend you don’t have. The breeze is swiftly flying through your hair like it does in the movies (not making birds nests and not tying bugs into it) but beautifully parallel to the cars direction. The setting is perfect. Driving down a speed road […]

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] London Grammar – “Hey Now” (Arty Remix)

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] London Grammar - "Hey Now" (Arty Remix)

  If you’re a night owl such as myself, you’ll find you spend a lot of time alone at your computer during the twilight hours. I find it quite peaceful, the lack of any outside distractions allowing me to focus and concentrate on the task at hand. As the hours progress, I tend to find […]
