Melodicablog 31.01.11

More stuff about the music and stories on this week’s Melodica – this week it’s all about bears (sort of).

In tune with the Melodica aesthetic, covering a broad range of exciting, inspiring, beautiful new music from electronica to house to experimental.

That Fuzzy Feeling – 2 Bears – Church (Darkstarr Elektrik Volk Remix) – Bitches Brew

Good news is that the new single from 2 Bears (aka Raf and Joe from Hot Chip) has been remixed into a glorious indie / Balearic summer dancefloor filler by Darkstar (aka Ashley Beedle and Cosmo). Bad news is the accompanying video features the dreaded Care Bears.

Atiba Song

Atiba Song is a new, er, song from Panda Bear. It was made to soundtrack a video directed by Atiba Jefferson and Ty Evans. Poor Ty didn’t get a tune named after him, never mind.

Double Standard

Double Standard is a vinyl only label from Gadi Mizrahi, one half of the Wolf + Lamb club collective.
The latest single is Greg Paulus – Crew Love (Remixes). There’s a fine selection of that modern, deep, house sound here with great mixes from Slow Hands and Soul Clap. Their parties look pretty good too.

Photo Machine

I can’t resist a picture of a camera, or a Throwing Snow remix. With Photo Machine’s new single you get both.

Gatto Fritto

In April Gatto Fritto will be the first artist to release a long player (gatefold vinyl and CD) on the wonderful Interntational Feel record label. Tracks are previewing on Melodica from this week. Gatto Fritto is a mysterious producer who makes good Balearic disco.
