Alright, two artists to start off the week. First off is We Plants Are Happy Plants with Apollo from his forthcoming album Twilight of the Dawn. He’s a one man show out of Budapest. The track is interesting to say the least, it’s quite elegant in a melodic narrative fashion. It starts off with dialogue from The Man from Earth which really sets the tone for the rest of the song; philosophically high? I basically listened to this track for a whole day last week, had a lot of images and thoughts that went through my head. Binary described this track the best. I saw lots of images of space though, like a scene out of 2001: A Space Odyssey. I need more music like this.
Second is Discovery, which includes the keyboardist from Vampire Weekend Rostam Batmanglij and the lead singer of Ra Ra Riot Wes Miles. I included the track So Insane from their debut album LP which will be released early July. I always liked Ra Ra Riot, this actually mixes the two pretty well.
