Hi guys, I've been doing this blog steadily for 3.5 years and I think I need a little break. You'll see some posts from me from time to time, but I'll no longer be posting 3 times a week.
In the meantime, feel free to contact me about DJing or remixing! I am based in San Francisco.
Happy holidays, folks! It's been pretty busy over here recently, but we've managed to take the time to continue our yearly tradition of serving up non-traditional holiday music. Try putting it on during tree decorating...

I've been recently enjoying the power pop stylings of Surfer Blood. Part Weezer, part Dodos, and part Shins, it's the music of a good time being had. Their debut Astro Coast is due out January 19th.

Yeasayer has a new album coming out on February 9, 2010 entitled, Odd Blood. They recently released the first single from the album, a track called "Ambling Alp". As a bonus, Memory Tapes has already taken a crack at remixing it!

Been thinking about maybe switching away from the blog format and going to a facebook/twitter feed. Any thoughts? My time for posting has been dwindling recently, new job and wedding prep and all.
Anyway, been recently enjoying the dream pop/chill wave sounds of Washed Out. Really soothing.

Shy Child will be back March 1st with a new album entitled Liquid Love. They've generously released their first single, "Criss Cross", which features a longer form composition and LCD Soundsystem-like patience!
