World Music Ain’t Yanni When You’ve Got Real Rhythm: A new mix

Olafur Eliasson
Colour spectrum kaleidoscope (2003)

I’ve been a bad blogger as of late. I am afraid the real world of job duties/life duties has been taking my time away, not to mention the glorious spring weather outside, dinner parties to be thrown and attended, attempts at accelerated fitness, etc.


If you’ve read anything on here before you might notice Agingsnob is currently obsessed with alt/dance music from Australia (see Cut Copy and Cave posts). I’m also a fan of blip blip/crash!/ industrial agro/minimal beats that come out of Germany and I’ll groove to effete French men regularly too. All of this is anticipation for my weekend of dance music from abroad—Midnight Juggernauts at Bowery Ballroom on Friday and Ellen Alien on Saturday at Studio B, not to mention a jaunt to MOMA for the Olafur Eliasson show, which will be a kind of visual rhythm fest, perhaps? So start dancing now! Even if you’re in a cubicle…think of it as office exercise


E Talking: Tiga

Heart It Races: Architecture In Helsinki

Downtown: Heloise and the Savoir Faire (funky!)

Newtons Gravitatlichkeit: Einstürzende Neubauten (not funky, but it is music made with power tools!)

Road to Recovery: Midnight Juggernauts

Funkenflug Der Traume: Ellen Allien

La ritournelle: Sébastien Tellier

Yippiyo-Ay: The Presetsyet another Australian electro band I’m gaga for

Swan Lake (Aka Death Disco): Public Image Limited …ever wonder where the term death disco comes from? John fucking Lydon.


(ALSO, Happy Birthday Tyler, thank you Joanna and Bryan for making my tickets happen and yay Claire/Jacob visit…)
