Aeroplane and Vaporia

Και σα να μην έφταναν όλα αυτά, θυμήθηκα που στο camp της Ελληνικής Αεροπορίας, πρόπερσυ τέτοια εποχή, για να μας την σπάσουν, με χιούμορ πάντα που χαρακτηρίζει το μέσο στρατόκαυλο έλληνα, μας ξυπνούσαν με το άσμα “δεν ήμουνα εγώ γι’ αεροπλάνα”…γιατί ήταν αυτός? Ο τελευταίος? Ο δεύτερος? Αυτή ήταν όμως…Αχ αυτή η στολή… 😉

Από τότε μάλλον, και ίσως καμιά δεκαριά χρόνια νωρίτερα, όταν πρωτομπήκα σε αεροπλάνο, ήμουν σίγουρος ότι όταν θα άκουγα τους aeroplane, νοστράδαμος, θα γινόμασταν ένα. Δεν με απογοήτευσαν ποτέ. Απο το πρώτο τους ομώνυμο και το caramellas μέχρι το πρόσφατο We Can’t Fly. Και να που έρχονται να παραδεχτούν για ακόμα μια φορά τα αποδεδειγμένα. Μα ποιός είσαι…ο Ίκαρος? Όσο για αυτόν και αυτούς που δανίστηκαν το όνομά του για να φτιάξουν τους Icarus, μια ηλεκτρονική μπάντα βουτηγμένη στα αιθέρια έλαια πλέοντας ψηλά στην ατμόσφαιρα, θα μιλήσουμε άλλη φορά… Ή μπορεί και καθόλου..

Κρίμα που τους έχασα όταν ήρθαν για ένα πάρτυ στο Galaxy Bar του Hilton, τους aeroplane, ποιός ασχολείται με τους Icarus. Δυστυχώς όμως Galaxy Bar και “οικονομική κρίση” δεν πάνε μαζί. Χαίρομαι αφάνταστα όμως που τους είδα στο περσινό Synch Fest και ήταν όντως καταπληκτικοί. Από εκείνο το Synch δεν θα ξεχάσω επίσης και το σαντουιτς παντόφλα, σόλα ή όπως αλλιώς θέλετε, που όχι μόνο το πλήρωσα 5 εουρα αλλά πέταξα και παραπάνω απο το μισό. Το άλλο μισό έφυγε νωρίς το πρωί στο θρόνο του σπιτιού μου…Αξέχαστες στιγμές.

Απολαύστε λοιπόν…Aeroplane και We Can’t Fly! Μπορείς να κάνεις και νταουνλοαντ..

Maximum Balloon feat. Aku – Tiger

No, this is not a sex tape. Too bad by the way, because Daisy Lowe is a hell of a babe. Dancing in front of an HD camera for the Esquire is the main figure for this video clip of Dave Sitek’s new track ‘Tiger’. Dave Sitek aka Maximum Balloon is coming from the band ‘TV on the Radio’ with a catchy and well produced track that hasn’t been released yet. We are expecting the whole new album in August.

Enjoy!

Ratatatatatat t t t t ti ti e ti ti ? e?

Οk..so here we go …

back in 1984 or ’83 (i cant remember precisely) we used to have a pair of those small coloured cute parrots..they must have been exotic and really in fashion back then i suppose (something like imported bananas – )

they would come out of their cage fly around come on my hand and smile maybe shit at times and then back in the cage .i grew really fond of them couldnt spend a day without them i was obsessed (i was like OMG)…couple of months later and during a visit to my parents village both of them got a pigeon disease flu or i dontknow what else and died..that was my first realisation that life was unfair and full of parasites and flu(s) and that true beauty did not always prevail… for the next 26 or 27 years these peroquettes were haunting my dreams whenever a beautiful girl came up in the story they would shit all over her and then she would run away. . .

Until yesterday that is…and how did this happen you must all be wondering ? e? …welll LP4 was released and ratatatatatat e titi e ti ti ? (ufff that iz long) which happens to be one of my favourite bands with more than three records on their CV released me from my nightmares … on the same style like their previous stuff only a bit more organic and soulful vibrant and alive if i may say …

enjoy :

Synch 2010

Synch Festival of 2010 is pretty much over but it was nothing like the previous one. Only a couple of names kept the festival alive and one of those was that ugly blond beast that calls herself PEACHES…and they are so delicious fruits.

Peaches broke the stage with her stunning show..She was kept on changing costumes, with less fabric each time, making you feel that Cirque De Soleil was on the stage. I am not going to talk about her songs because there’s nothing to tell about them. Awesome tracks, powerful, full of energy. The best moment of the show was when Peaches said “Jesus walked on water, Peaches walks on you”..

The overall feeling that I took from the first day of the synch festival wasn’t that good. Thank god peaches were there. There were also the Fuck Buttons but I couldn’t have the strength to shoot them. No photos about them then…

The second day of the synch festival was worse. Very bad time programming for the bands and especially for the two big names that were on open air 1 stage. Who else: Hot Chip and Laurent Garnier. Both were amazing, really great shows with no surprises but in the wrong time. In my opinion Hot chip show be at 22:30 and Laurent Garnier should be after hours inside D7 stage…

It’s not that I didn’t appreciate the fact that I saw both of them live in Athens, but I think that I would enjoyed it most if they could manage it better in time. Anyway we are hoping that synch festival is going to stand on its feet again next year with more energy…

Get Well Soon synch festival…

Gold Panda

…and you are hearing them say that it’s all about You.

Gold Panda’a new EP album is called ‘You’ and it’s something about them and their music that keeps me close. Close enough to create a post about them. Really nice electronic music with small parts of Dance and a little bit of asian dub. The EP is coming to an end with a couple of beautiful “You” remixes.

We are sharing the so called song. Drop your ears…

Gold Panda – You

Enjoy!

Take it electronically..

One of the most beautiful electronic albums of the 2010. Take’s debut album is called ‘Only Mountain’ and from the so called we share the song “Neon Beams”.

Enjoy!

Take – Neon Beams
