PALM SPRINGS BEATS

If you felt awash in cosmic energy early this week, your chi was trying to tell you the news - nearly every PSBer reunited in SF this week to celebrate DShek. Good times were had (as I understand it) and Vibes were sent. Mahalo.

This track has blown my mind daily. It’s a Synth-Pop/House Grateful Dead deep cut that I had to listen to multiple times to make sure it was still in fact the same song. Not sure about the record but you should check it out. Took me until writing this post to finally get the name (or at least I think I get it now): 

More R&S goodness this week. H/T to Stereogum

Thanks Rick, thanks Pat. 

This is everything I want/need from a rap song/video.

Ignorance is bliss.   

I got Pricilla, I got Pricilla!   

Totally.

The latest in Buh's excellent series, $5K Videos, is batshit crazy. Solid tune as well. This YouTube comment provides a nifty synopsis: 

Just to clarify, did he fly into that cat’s ass, past his sphincter and into his intestines, then later shot himself multiple time in the genitals?

Happy Wednesday!

It’s Friday. Love everybody and enjoy yourselves. I can guarantee you that I love all of these songs (one of which is like 11 songs and is 18 mins long).

…my spiritual forbears for creating MTV’s Amp. Back when MTV still aired music videos*, Amp was getting super-weird late at nights.

The first time I watched the program (probably switching away from the static-filled, semi-encrypted, squigly-lined Playboy channel after my parents were asleep), I landed on an episode that showed Prodigy’s Firestarter and Tricky’s Christiansands back-to-back. I’d never seen – or heard – anything like it. And then they played Aphex’s Come to Daddy and my mind went

Amp was the reason I started listening to electronic music in high school, when the rest of (most of) my classmates were listening to Creed and Garth Brooks. More than any single person or source, Amp put me on the righteous path.

I was listening to old Prodigy records this weekend and I remembered this track, which was on one of the Amp compilations that MTV published. Huge tune that probably largely went unnoticed before the internet and relevant music blogs started to surface all of the good content in existence.
