Premier - KrushT - With You
After a long hard weekend camping I needed some soothing music to start of this busy week. Give a listen to the sounds of the talented LA based producer KrushT.
Listening to (read: enjoying and head bopping to) this melodic wonder at the moment. Also, you can find more stuff on the KrushT tumblr at http://krushTmusic.tumblr.com.
Kraftwerk — The Robots
Retro re-blogging with electronic music pioneer Kraftwerk’s 1978 “The Robots” track…Anybody remember 78? As I recalled it, it wasn’t too bad. The Knack had formed, and the Dead Kennedys played their first concert….Grease, Superman, Animal House, Halloween & other classic movies came out during that same year.
I thought I was over my Eighties inspired electronic pop-rock phase, but then I remembered how awesome the Shiny Toy Guns were. Enjoy.

Something for a Monday…
“Doctor Who, the British time-traveling series, has proven remarkably resilient; created 48 years ago, its newest season premiered Saturday, setting a new ratings record for BBC America. Even more remarkable is the resiliency of its theme music (embedded below [ABOVE]). Swooping, hissing and pulsing with electronic verve, it manages to be at once haunting, goofy and ethereal. More than just a warbling masterpiece of TV music, it’s the best-known work of a ragtag group of technicians who unwittingly helped shape the course of 20th-century music.”

The entire article is excellent.
