So for fear of being the only blog in the world not to mention Michael jackson, I am not going to mention Michael Jackson. If I don't mention Michael Jackson, will my inter-existence spiral off into an oblivion of zeros and ones? For not mentioning Michael Jackson will I somehow be the top search result for people googling nothing? If I google _ will my name come up next to a picture of Stephen Hawkings breakdancing? If I go onto Comm. ave and attempt to engage someone in a conversation not pertaining to Michael Jackson will a yellow danish modern sofa drop out of a wormhole next to me and crush an asian midget? Is it really a coincidence that it rained for 20 days straight and suddenly stopped 15 minutes before the gloved one was rushed to an emergency room in "California?" Did Farah Fawcett's PR people realize the unnacceptable error in their judgement yesterday? Talk about poor planning, people... get on the BALL! These are serious questions that need answers, NOW! While you're all frantically struggling to unearth the answers to these hard questions which the "drive-by media" is ignoring, Rush Limbaugh is igniting the talk radio circuit with hardline rhetoric daring to connect the dots between Obama's involvement in "Operation Iranian Freedom" and Michael's suspiciously missing glove. Coincidence? I think so.
While poring through my old cassette collection for proof of artifial intelligence, I was disturbed and delighted to find a "track" I made 5 or so years back with the ever broadening hips and lips of America's sexiest Adam Littleboy. As you listen to this high quality download, please think about how we as Americans and citizens of the world can prevent the next Michael Jackson debacle. Just say NO to music!!!!
NO I SAY!!! NOOOO!

Beatbroker sent me the Lowdown-Slowdown mixtape a few days back. It's a really enjoyable listen just oozing summertime gooey-ness and by what is honest coincidence he opens with String Pusher. Cool with me. I've been respecting the Brokerman's music for some time now and I'm psyched to have this exclusive slo-mo mix to post as well as a great remake of Peter Brown's "Burning Love."

Matters & Dunaway is the illustrious Andre Obin on bass and vox alongside programming of Tom Gallagher. I am pretty sure they both work on the production side of things. They are yet another reason Boston is kicking ass. When I hear their name I think of the famous interview with Pink Floyd years ago when they were asked by the hapless interviewer "which one's Pink?" Like, which one's Matters? I have to say that it's pretty difficult to come up with a new sound in these times of global musical exponentials. However, Andre and Tom have managed to do so. I know I'm a little bit late to this party, but when I heard Dystopian Dream a few months back I got chills down my spine. I'd also like to note that the term "electronica" is a heap of bull manufactured by some re-tread who thought Prodigy was actually interesting back in 1998. "Wow, they're so cutting edge" the man said, "no one makes music like this." As he slunk back into his cave of mediocrity, 2.3 million people around the globe snickered and put on a Richie Hawtin mixtape. But I digress. Somehow both epic and understated, please enjoy the genre bending post-proto-doubletime loveliness of the otherworldly Matters and Dunaway.

I just got this edit from Leftside Wobble's Jonathan Moore. It's a reworking of the infamous Teddy Pendergrass' Get Down, Get Funky. Teddy even uses proper punctuation in the title. Way to go Tedster. Jonathan Moore is coming out with some hot edits as of late. Stay posted for Moooooooore.

These guys are obviously one of the best bands to listen to in your local dive bar. Mark Knopfler, considered one of the best guitarists, at least in the "Rock" genre, whatever "rock" means.
I'm really not in the mood to type up a storm right now... please enjoy these songs... I'm removing choice values so these tracks stay here for more than 3 hours.
