One Day

I'm currently doing a remix of Matisyahu's song "One Day", which was selected as the anthem for the 2010 Winter Olympics. I'll post up what i've got so far, and then you can give it a listen, dissect it, tell me what you think.

In other news, the Jason Webley / Vagabond Opera show on the 19th was great. If you haven't had a chance to check out either of these powerhouse acts, you should get on that right now.

Here's a few albums I've been kicking around the last few days:

Air: Love 2
Honestly, if you're a fan of downtempo, chilled electronica and you haven't heard this yet, you're missing out big time. While not Moon Safari by any stretch, it stands alone as a great pop-synth album that is easily consumable by mostly anyone. Please, please listen to this.

St. Vincent: Actor
Indie rock guitarist Annie Clark (Berklee graduate) delivers an awesome, eclectic, and somewhat mysterious sound on Actor. Haunting, beautiful, and fresh. Check out this record.

Andy McKee: Art of Motion
If you don't know who this guy is, check out this video. An entire album of this somewhat pretentious guitar playing is infinitely relaxing, harmonious and beautiful. I listen to this when I can't sleep.

Devotchka: How It Ends
Gypsy folk / punk / rock. Similar to acts such as Jason Webley or The Dresden Dolls, but with less of a novelty feel and more emphasis on powerful songs. Check out this band on youtube or something, they have a really cool eastern european sound.

Del Tha Funkee Homosapien: I Wish My Brother George Was Here
One of the best underground hip-hop albums ever. Ever. There are some masterpieces on this record (Mistadobolina) and it shouldn't be missed by anyone. Even if you don't like hip-hop. Get this.

The album is coming along. I'm starting to finish some tracks, but there's still so much to do. Stay tuned for the remix of "One Day".
