Tame Impala Lonerism

Perth, Australia’s psych band Tame Impala put out a record October called Lonerism.  A very groovy record revered by the folk’s in the know.  I like to hit the vibe-out music while plugging away in the office.

The song “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” is an interesting reflection of style and sound.  Dig it from All Things Go:

“Tame Impala’s musical time travel is a beautiful, post-modern adventure elevated to high art. This isn’t conscious revivalism, but a sort of subconscious exploration of our musical id. And it’s updated by new school technical tact. Their psychedelic collage of 60s and 70s rock is married with a more modern electro-psych genius — pairing classic rock instrumentals with electronic tinkering in a way that’s reminiscent of the musical canvases of Beach House or the Flaming Lips.” – ATG

I wanna live in this song.

While plugging around… the song ended and another random Tame Impala song came on Soundcloud…. “Jeremy’s Storm.”  Hey, that’s my name!

I like “likes.”

My hiking pants are tumbling in the dryer…though I don’t really see the point as it looks like my hike at Gowlland Tod will be in the rain.  Sipping a coffee and checking some emails while I wait for adventure and I punched up a song that came from Perth, Western Australia. Probably less rain there.

The group is called Water Graves and they describe their music as “lo-fi textures combined with watery synth and dreamy harmonies.”  Sounds like my kind of chillwave for a rainy weekend in the forest kingdom of Victoria.  Debut ep is out later this year.  Until then…

I think my pants are getting pretty close to dry.  Time to hit Red Barn for a sandwich to pack and then a muddy trail.  See you tonight at Veneto (I am DJing a Saturday for a change).

Go with yourself.

I bought a domain name for my DJ /Music Consultation business yesterday. Spin The Black Disc dot com.

Right now it just forwards to this blog but I think one day I’ll create a page just for the domain to highlight and develop my professional music business separate from this here blog.

The title is a play on the Pearl Jam song, “Spin The Black Circle.”  Rad song, about playing records.  I flipped it up a bit so that way when you search for it, I hopefully will become the the number one ‘Spin the Black Disc’ on the net and not get lost in endless pages of Pearl Jam lyrics and youtube videos. (and with disc, the dot com was available!)

My logo branding concept is taking shape.  I’ll be using the colours and style of Australian Highway signs because… I have an odd fascination with the city of Perth and I like them.

Rozie said she’d give me a crash course on photoshop so I can try to manipulate my own logo.  Fun!

… coming soon! Actual business cards.
