For earth, peace.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Four Tet consistently makes some of the most amazing, beautiful music out there and he's flying under a lot of people's radar these days. Finally picked up his last album, Pink, and though it's essentially a collection of vinyl-only singles, it is no less awesome as a complete work. This particular track, Peace For Earth, doesn't necessarily reflect the rest of the album, but it stands out to me as something so out of music-fashion in many ways and perhaps even the more lovelier for charting it's own course.

Also, be sure to check out his recent remix of Neneh Cherry & The Thing's "Dream Baby Dream". It's gnarly.

Please tell my brain every thought is the same.

Post-Lolla finally, and catching up. The new/upcoming Dan Deacon album, America, is amazing. Easily this jam ("True Thrush") gets song of the day from album of the week. Thanks Mr. Deacon.

There is an answer; I haven't found it.

The new Dirty Projectors has more or less been on repeat for the last few weeks and "Dance For You" is hands-down the song of the day from album of the week. Quite sure that Swing Lo Magellan will be in the Top 10 Albums of 2012 for me. This one goes out to my son & wife. I'll always dance for you.

Sit on the shoulder, work with the sea.

Picked this up on vinyl at Other Music the week I was in NYC. Came with a limited edition flexidisc. Hands-down the album of the week. Working its way to album of the year. Peaking Lights "Lucifer". Check out this song, Cosmic Tides.

If I have gone away, don't worry, it is only forever.

What do you get when you take members of Hot Chip + Spiritualized + This Heat and have them record a full album over the course of one day at Abbey Road?
You get the song of the day from album of the week.
Loving this:

And it made us feel alive/alike.

It took a little while for me to get into the vocals, but the new Efterklang is finally growing on me.
I really dig a few tracks; this one in particular.

Also, going to see Malachai tonight at Le Poisson Rouge.
Missed them down at SXSW and I'm quite curious to see how they pull off their live show.

There Is, Love In You (Angel's Echoes).

In my opinion, Four Tet seems one of the most underrated and snoozed-on musicians of recent history.
Personally, I think he's creating some of the most interesting music out there and as far as I can tell (though maybe I am mistaken and with the exception of people I know who love him), he might not be getting the recognition he deserves.
Here's to hoping that changes.
And here's a beautiful track of his most recent album that should help to do the trick:
