Daily Dose: Still Corners, “The Message”


Greg Hughes and Tess Murray make enjoyable music. I love the synthy, outer space surf western vibes that emanate from this new track; it’s very next-horizon. Their new album, Slow Air, has been on constant rotation when I’m working: the perfect music to make the research less stultifying. I love music, and I love workflow grooves, and Slow Air is the tits.

Californians can see them live this Fall: at the Casbah in San Diego on October 30th; at Resident in Los Angeles on November 1st; and at Neck of the Woods in San Francisco on November 2nd. Go see them.

Daily Dose: Melody’s Echo Chamber, “Cross My Heart”

I am totally obsessed with this album. It feels so fresh, mixing 1960s French psychedelia with Britpop nuances, a dose of funky jazz flute, and some subtle hip hop riffs in the middle for good measure.

If I close my eyes, I can almost imagine myself floating through Paris as an extra in an unmade Serge Gainsbourg film.
