throwback thursday: my time | minus the bear

my time | minus the bear

 
Minus The Bear and their track My Time is one of our gallantly danceable Throwback Thursday selections this week. The reason being? Well, give it a listen and you’ll get a chronic case of the “happy feets”. Don’t worry, it’ll wash off in the shower. The track My Time is included in the band’s Omni (2010) release. It’s the first song on the LP and for good reason. This one made my summer playlist on the strength of his listenability and groovy vivaciousness. Yeppers! I said it so check it out. Also, peep the My Time (NGHTBLND Remix) after the jump. Peace.

My Time: Lyrics
 
Turn off the lights
And touch me in the dark
Fade into the feeling
And whisper in my ear

What you want
What you need
Tell me my name
Tell me my name
Again, again, again, again
Just yell out my name, baby

(I got your nights)
I got your nights
(I got your days)
I got your days
(I got you on)
I got you on my time

(I got your nights)
I got your nights
(I got your days)
I got your days
(I got you on)
I got you on

You taste like sweet wine
And we are magnified
The sweat rolls down your thigh
We’re making moves so blind

It’s what you want
It’s what you need
And I’m just the same, baby

(I got your nights)
I got your nights
(I got your days)
I got your days
(I got you on)

I got you on my time

(I got your nights)
I got your nights
(I got your days)
I got your days
(I got you on)
I got you on my time

And you’re holding on to me like an old love
That you know every inch of
And when I feel you start to go, take it slow
‘Til your body’s saying more, baby

(I got your nights)
I got your nights
(I got your days)
I got your days
(I got you on)
I got you on my time

(I got your nights)
I got your nights
(I got your days)
I got your days
(I got you on)
I got you on my time

You gonna be on
My time, my time

I got your nights
(I got your days)
I got your days
(I got you on)
I got you on my time.

Sam Padrul drops a certified summertime hit with his energetic and every color of the rainbow track Hold On Me (ft. Mammals). It is rockin’ the top honors spot on my current playlist and I’m thinking this is easily one of coolest songs of the summer season. Hoping for much more Mr. Padrul. Peace.

Basecamp the Nashville, TN trio that’s been on a tear for a few years now (Watch My Back, Smoke Filled Lungs, Shudder). The band’s latest release the Greater Than EP is six tracks of exactly why we love these guys. The fourth track on the EP Esc gets the remix treatment with Esc (Swindail Remix) and the Esc (josh pan & X&G Remix). I can’t decide which version I like the bestest. Maybe you can help me decide? Peace.

Noel Heroux formerly of the New York rockfit Hooray For Earth, has broken type and reinvented himself, musically and otherwise, as Mass Gothic. The new music is rich, raw and with a low sail it plows the rough seas of the human heart beautifully. His self-titled Sub-Pop release marks a new unencumbered journey and sonically I am all in and loving it. The track Nice Night has a way of both lifting and dampening my spirits and maybe that’s the point. The album Mass Gothic is out now courtesy of Sub Pop Records. Peace. Read more »

aidan knight | the arp

 
Aidan Knight is a modern day bard in the best and most sincere sense of the descriptor. His music is, among other things, robust, genteel and insanely beautiful. The featured track The Arp opens up like a benignly blazing sunrise cresting the far horizon. Song as a scrapbook, the warm sustenance of a hot cup of tea, a meditative playlist and a pocketful of sweetened Gary Snyder poems. Aidan’s latest album Each Other is collectively more profound, for there exists songs here which will become decorous rings around your bleeding heart. Each Other, What Light (Never Goes Dim), You Are Not Here and Black Dream are also notable standouts. Aidan Knight’s album Each Other is out now courtesy of the Outside Music label. Also, take a peek at the Ft. Langley directed video for All Clear video after the jump. Peace. Read more »

Not long ago the buzz on the street insinuated that multi-genre maestro Robert Glasper was dropping the tribute album Everything’s Beautiful commemorating the anniversary of the 90th birthday of Jazz icon Miles Davis. And the reveal of some of artist making guest appearances was enough to makes ears the world over salivate:Erykah Badu, KING, Stevie Wonder, Hiatus Kaiyote, Bilal, Phonte, Illa J, and John Scofield, etc. Soon enough Bilal’s feature, Ghetto Walkin’, dropped in conjunction with further details in regard to the album.

Hundred Waters does good music. But you know this, so it is not surprising (GASP!) to hear their sonically noble track get abundant blessings with the release of the Show Me Love (Skrillex Remix). We’re talking Mount Everest elevation here, and a higher plane of existence as a result of the deft wonder work of Mr. Sonny J. Moore, Chance The Rapper, Moses Sumney and Robin Hannibal respectively. The original track Show Me Love is one of many (12 actually, but who’s counting? Well, apparently I am) from HW‘s The Moon Rang Like A Bell release courtesy of OWSLA. Peace. Read more »

Radiohead are sneaky bastards aren’t they? But I suspected something was up when they became a headliner at this year’s Lollapalooza Music Festival. Then after droppin’ a couple of tracks Burn The Witch and Daydreaming every fanboy and fangirl were riven with the possibility of a new full-length release. And now A Moon Shaped Pool is actually a real thing and not some sort of pipe dream. Naturally I am stoked way past 11 and I have already ordered my vinyl! Read more »

TEEN is a band manned with four future UN ambassadors for the of Island Fun! And while this may (or may not) be entirely a truism it rings as such. Teeny Lieberson and company have spun out (through not fault of their own) yet another wonderfully jollified diversion. The music this band puts out is multi-useful too. Say you’re one to worry about such mundane things as so-in-so liking you or the overdue mortgage. Well, this is the album you most assuredly need to drop the needle on muy pronto! And just so you know this album pairs incredibly well with a pint or two (ice cream or beer, your choice). The album Love Yes is out right this very moment via Carpark Records. Peace. Read more »
