Max Frost and his Funkyass Jives

A memory with his music

There’s alotta music that sounds good, but few become all that memorable. To have a sound you know you’ll be listening to for a good long while, as sparing as that while may be, is what we all look for in music.

I first caught wind of Max Frost with his ‘White Lies’ track that’s topping the charts on the Hype Machine right now. And as memorable as ‘White Lies’ may be, what I didn’t expect was to find a bunch more memorables.

Frost’s SoundCloud is littered with funky hick jives that are all single worthy in their own right. His 50’s bebop style with Black Keys like vocals could only be topped off right with such memorable chorus lines. I’m looking with a keen eye on this guy, not a mediocre track to his name, yet.

Tiny Tiny · Take the Time

Tryin out this indie stuff, one at a time.

Like all the indie and most the music I listen to, I can’t quite spell out why I like what I like in the songs that I post here. Really, it’s just the right sounds conforming at the right time, I guess.

Tiny Tiny is straight up indie that I’m not quite sure on yet, my prowess with indie music is still in its infancy, but every sound of theirs has conformed right in my head so far. My favorite of theirs, ‘Take the Time,’ reminds me of of Robin Hood (Disney’s) or some song from a Wes Anderson film.

Make sure to check out Bordeaux if you’re into this. Similar voicemanship (not a real world).

Charles Bordeaux · Blackhole Girl

Bordeaux doin' disco. What a pleasant surprise.

How the hell did I not think this one up Bordeaux has been making my melancholy music since the last half of 2012 and if you know anything about this blog, you know how much we love disco. And yet somehow I didn’t complain that the two haven’t gotten together yet – I usually do it so well.

Well, no need to complain now. Bordeaux brings a sombre touch to this flashy, nu disco movement and the only gripe I got with it is that I didn’t think to pair up the two first (which I’m sure you’re well aware of by now).

POLIÇA · Tiff (feat. Justin Vernon)

Just a pawn in the hype machine

I can’t understand half of what she’s saying, but whatever it is she says it well. Polica came onto my radar once I got to know the Midwest super group, GAYNGS, which they’re a part of. Justin Vernon is also involved with the supagroup and features on this newest Polica track, ‘Tiff.’

Vernon might actually be the only thing I didn’t like on ‘Tiff.’ His intro half way through the song doesn’t sound right and just wasn’t blended well, though his eerier presence afterwards fit in right. Other than that the song seems to be hit worthy, especially on the Hype Machine.

Just two days into the song, over 40 bloggers have already mentioned Tiff. The song actually, intentionally or unintentionally, brings up that they’re a “pawn in the hype machine” and I’m wondering how many bloggers admitted the same on their post.

Mt. Wolf ·· Hypolight

Enchantingly dark

I am absolutely falling for Mt. Wolf. Ever since I heard Kate Sproule’s voice in a Catching Flies remix of ‘Life Size Ghosts,’ I knew she’d fit right into my roster of female vocalists to watch. But Mt. Wolf doesn’t just carry a good singer, the instrumentals on their recent Hypolight EP are beautifully dark & enchanting. And damn does Kate’s poignant words carry in the chorus. Really etches her lines into my head all.damn.day <3

Night Panther · Fire

Blazin' up a few nostalgic sounds from my past

Night Panther’s ‘Fire’ strangely reminds me of a few different random-ass things. For the first few bars when the vocals kick in, the song slightly reminds me of Home Alone and the nostalgic flashbacks of Kevin preparing for his prankster ways on Marv & Harry (told you it was random). Then it goes on to sounding like a Starfucker bonanza at around 2 minutes past with electro sounds a-blazin’. It finally closes out by returning to that signature Night Panther falsetto with crisp bars of brass behind it, like always (or one other time).

A Lesson in WMNSTUDIES

The music producers, not the study of the sex.

I forget how we met, but WMNSTUDIES & I got something goin on. I loved their Too Damn Dope remix so much I went through their entire SoundCloud sounds and came up with two other female vocalists remixed right. They’ve got a sound similar to Late Nite Tuff Guy, relaxing the hell out of me each & every time, and I can’t wait for what’s next on the agenda. These somethings are So Smoooth.

Cosmo Sheldrake · Rich (feat. Anna Roo)

Alotta pontial stewed up in this country-fried gem

When I first heard this, I thought it was some track of Anna Kendrick off the Perfect Pitch soundtrack …not that I’ve listened to it… Anyways, I originally thought I’d be one of the first to post this ‘Rich’ track, but boy was I wrong. As it stands, this porch-friendly jam sesh has hit 50,000 plays on SoundCloud and I’m sure there’s a helluva lot more to come. Hope these two team up for some more, alotta room for growth here.

SOHN · The Wheel

Indie-electro seduction

This SOHN beat is a bit out there, but that’s what we love best. It’s got a very crisp sound to it and put together with these indie-sedating vocals, ‘The Wheel’ is one electro-indie seduction. My one issue with it goes back to the beat. The sample of the sticks get to be too repetitive and just doesn’t have enough variance. Still, some very good qualities to it, namely those vocals.

Two Door Cinema Club · Sun (Viceroy Remix)

A holiday in the sun with a full bass to carry us through

The man with the Caribbean tan has taken on Two Door Cinema Club’s ‘Sun’ and how befitting it may be. And even though Viceroy is still up on his fun-love in the sun game, he always changes it up just right to keep our attention.
