Mayer Hawthorne – ”In A Phantom Mood (Shintaro Sakamoto cover)” Shintaro Sakamoto – ”Wine Glass Woman (Mayer Hawthorne cover)”

Los Angeles based Mayer Hawthorne and Tokyo based artist Shintaro Sakamoto [released] a new split 7″ vinyl on Record Store Day 2014 (4/19). The record features Mayer singing Sakamoto’s “In A Phantom Mood” in English, while on the other side, Sakamoto sings Mayer’s “Wine Glass Woman” in Japanese!
This collaboration is absolutely blowing my mind!! I never realized these two artists have much in common.

Ariel Pink – “Put Your Number In My Phone”

Loving this new carefree single; reminds me of speeding along sunlit California highways. I also really enjoyed reading this Pitchfork interview in which Ariel Pink weighs in on everything from love to public image to political correctness.

Overtones: Turn Down for What

I really enjoy this kind of music analysis; hope you do too!

I don’t know much about Aphex Twin, to be honest, but I really really like this, and new music for the first time in thirteen years feels like an important cultural event!

Gorillaz – ”Feel Good Inc. (feat. De La Soul)”

Throwback… Wednesday? Lol whatever, this song just popped into my head. I dare you to tell me you weren’t obsessed with this hit for a period, however brief, in 2005. Also, the lighting in the music video is absolutely stunning.
