DJ DODGER STADIUM, "ONE WHO LOST"



Thanks to Juiceboxxx's recent "best of 2k14" list he posted over at his website I was turned onto the debut LP from L.A. duo DJ Dodger Stadium. I won't lie to you, I've been moving further and further away from house this past year. For whatever reason it's just doing it for me the way it used to. I don't know, but anyway, this record renewed my faith in dance music. Friend of Mine is full of emotional bangers that are good in the club or when you're sitting alone at home, wishing you were at the club. "One Who Lost" is the third track and it kills. I don't know what's going to happen between me and dance music in 2k15, but for now Dj Dodger Stadium is hittin' the spot. Maybe it will for you too?

GIN BLOSSOMS, "FOUND OUT ABOUT YOU"



I think it's pretty well documented, both on the 'net and IRL, that I am a fan of the Gin Blossoms. I won't lie, I stick to the hits; but let's admit that those hits are pretty damn good. Above you can bask in the mellow rock of "Found Out About You," one of their "sleeper" jams. Maybe it's better than "Hey Jealousy"? Maybe not. Either way, listen to this when you're riding the bus to work, staring out the window at the cloudy skies, wishing you were back on the bike, basking in the summer sun...

ROBEDOOR, "RADIANT COMMAND"



This year I've gotten more into noise and drone music, and one of the bands I can't get enough of has been L.A. duo (sometimes trio) Robedoor. Comprised of Alex Brown and Britt Brown (no relation), and occasionally M. Geddes Gengras on drums, Robedoor specialize in some burning tunes that are a healthy mix of doom metal and blasted psych rock. "Radiant Command," off their aptly titled record Burners, is streaming above. For those who may be interested, Britt's label Not Not Fun just issued a limited cassette edition of Robedoor's latest record, Primal Sphere, which you can cop HERE.

BRONZE, "QUALITY"

This record came out in early 2k14, but since we were off the grid for a while I feel like it's necessary to post some of the "choice" tracks from earlier in the year. Bay Area psych-rock outfit Bronze dropped one of my favorite LPs of the year, World Arena, via Not Not Fun, and below you can stream highlight "Quality." The follow up to their RVNG released Copper, this whole thing has been blowin' my mind whenever I put it on, and I think you'll see why with the taste below. Cop World Arena here, as well as many of the other NNF/100% Silk goodies that have been killin' it this year : )

VARIOUS ARTISTS, "OCEANIC TRIANGULATION"



So I just got this 2xcassette a couple weeks ago and I can't get over how chill these jams are. Comprised of four tunes from contemporary new age/ambient/chill-out gurus Panabrite, Former Selves, Hakobune, and Oliwa, Oceanic Triangulation is so so good. This is also my first experience with Oakland based label Inner Islands, who seem to be cultivating and curating very mellow, relaxing tapes. Brew up some green tea, get the bubble bath going, and zone out to the spacey, trippy vibe contained within these choice tapes :)

ANDY PETR, "DEEP SPACE SATURDAY NIGHT (ANALOG RE-VERSION)"

Although I don't have a twitter account myself I find it's always good to keep up with some artists who eschew other forms of social media. Andy Petr, Brooklyn producer extraordinaire and SJFM contributor, unleashes a brand new tune for ya. "Deep Space Saturday Night (Analog Re-Version)" is "classic Petr," with dense, inventive production that can be found all over his wealth of releases (two EPs for Mixpak and a slew of freely released jams). While the initial build-up gives the impression that we're in for a deep banger of a beat, it just keeps on building a wall of synths and gives way to a tripped out closing that's not quite IDM, not quite EDM, ya feel me???

Stream below, and check out Petr's Twitter and Soundcloud for more :)
