If you’ve ever seen the man, you won’t be surprised to hear he’s got a thing for vintage.
He loves all things analog and when he was approached about remixing Beck’s “I Won’t Be Long” – based on his remix of David Bowie’s “Golden Years”—he knew exactly what he wanted to do.

They were all smiles backstage last night after they debuted half of their new album — and some fan favorites –for a worldwide audience in a webcast presented by KCRW and NPR Music.

Kindness – “World Restart (Ft. Kelela & Ade)”

WOW. They were great.

Bahamas Covers Bobby Womack: “Please Forgive My Heart”

Bahamas by Brian Lowe

When I first heard Bobby Womack’s “Please Forgive My Heart”, what really stood out (aside from his always soul-barring vocal delivery) was the ultra-modern production.
Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz) and Richard Russell (one of the founders of XL Recordings) produced the track, which was part of his first album of original material in 18 years.
It was striking, combining deep emotional depth with the electronic stylings of …

There has been a Queen resurgence that I have really been enjoying.
I recently read an incredible article in Rolling Stone, surviving members of the band are touring for the first time in 30 years, and here in LA the Center Theatre Group is presenting a musical based on their music (I hear the female lead has an extraordinary voice).
I grew up hearing “We Will …

Deers – “Bamboo”
The first time I heard Jason give this track a spin on MBE, the back and forth of the two female vocalists instantly caught my ear.
It’s lo-fi surf rock that is bursting with attitude from this duo out of Madrid (Ana Garcia Perrote and Carlotta Cosials).
They released this track under the title DEMO on their Bandcamp page and described the circumstances behind …
