Active Child-“Playing House” (Chad Valley Remix)
I’ve been leaning on Pat to help me through some depressing times and I really like this remix by Chad Valley. Somehow I haven’t managed to find anybody whose been able to fuck up an Active Child song.
This is otherworldly beautiful.
Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti-“Only In My Dreams”
If I heard this song on an elevator I would get dooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwn
I’ve been listening to this album again recently and it’s pretty great.
So I probably should of known this but thanks to my Spainish homegirl Rosa I was enlightened. I was killin’ time watching surf videos on Vimeo all last night because I wish I had friends who surfed so I can photograph them doing so. I stumbled on this rad black and white surf clip titled “Sunday Afternoon @ Herion’s” done by the dudes LEAF which features this song, a hawt babe and bros shreddin’ on some decent waves. I must of watched this video a dozen times just for the song alone.
This b-side track that’s chuck full of close harmonies is for sale thru Ooga Booga’s own label for just $6. Totes worth it.
Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti-“Can’t Hear My Eyes”
It’s been too long since I last gave Ariel some attention on this blog. I hated this album when it first came out because I had severe anxieties about his changing direction, but…it’s really grown on me over the last year.
