Lapalux - Dance
Timber Timbre — Hot Dreams
I wanna wake from hot dreams of you
Clarian - From A Distance
from a distant resistance
i’ll find you some way back
and then someday you’ll see that
we won’t be those people
who turn out like wheels
pretending to start all over again
Ricoshei — Perfect Like You
Love this new project by Nikko Gibler & Jake Cohen
Fatima Yamaha - What’s A Girl To Do?
This is even better for sampling ScarJo’s lines in Lost in Translation.
Frank & Tony - Holy For Her
Seasoned Marin fans and new listeners will undoubtedly be hooked from the start as he masterfully brings together a delectable array of raw, dusky cuts, intoxicating deep house gems and melancholy-tinged tracks. The result is a dark, twisted but beautiful journey. Among the artists featured in the mix are Marin himself, Affkt/Markus Homm, Octa Otca, False Image and Della Zouch, to name a few. That should give you plenty of insight, but our advice is to throw it on and have a listen (or five) for your listening pleasure.
Norma Jean Bell - I’m The Baddest Bitch (Moodymann remix)
Nina Simone - Funkier Than a Mosquito’s Tweeter
You put yourself upon a big stool
Nothin’ worse than an educated fool
What’s in your head has really started showing
Your conversation gettin’ kinda boring
late night vibes
Sam Cooke - Only Sixteen
About two weeks after I moved to the city, I was riding the Downtown 1 with a few friends who were visiting me when a straphanger randomly belted this one out in a surprising husky, baritone voice for us. This has always been one of my favorite Cooke songs and that particular memory has stayed with me since.
Sam Cooke would have been 83 today.
I always complain about transcribing interviews and I attribute this to a few reasons:
1) I tend to repeat the same mistake of scheduling to meet up with my subjects in cafes where our would-be peaceful discussion ends up a bit muddled because of the on-site barista’s shitty alt-rock taste
2) neither my iPhone nor my recorder are immune to shitty alt-rock during playback
3) it takes forever—unless the sound quality is somewhat decent, I could easily end up rewinding a one-minute portion of audio about 15 times. Unless you’ve done this, you don’t understand why this is torture.
BUT ABOVE ALL ELSE:
4) if I really dig the artist, I usually treat the interview like a magical opportunity to talk about one of my favorite subjects. in doing so, our convos stretch for hours (much of which I have to leave out) as we discuss our mutual love for certain artists/songs OR, worse (and it’s only bad because I’m terribly curious), they pique my interest by dropping some previously unheard of gem that I immediately remember to research while transcribing which eventually leads to a never-ending YouTube clip vortex at 4 a.m. the night before my article is due similar to what is happening at. this. very. moment.
my brain hurts.
Edit: I ended up transcribing roughly 3000 words of convo this time. Ow.

Plants and Animals — The End of That
I tried your cocaine
Just to know what it could do
I had to try it again
Just to give it a second chance
But it tore out my soul
Passed out, crashed on a mat
And that was the end of that
