Paul & The Patients – Blogspot (Nick Seely Remix)

This song reminds me of one of my favorite LCD Soundsystem songs, Losing My Edge. The satirical lyrics about relevance freaks couldn’t be more representative of the way some people treat music these days.

I hear you’re buying a synthesizer and an arpeggiator and are throwing your computer out the window because you want to make something real. You want to make a Yaz record.

I hear that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables.
I hear that you and your band have sold your turntables and bought guitars.

I hear everybody that you know is more relevant than everybody that I know.” – LCD Soundsystem

Talking about what music should be, whose cool for listening to it, blah blah is boring. In fact, focusing on anything besides the song at hand kinda ruins the fantasy for me.

Fantasy love is much better then reality love.” – Andy Warhol

I half agree when it comes to romance but when it comes to music I totally agree with Andy. People get to caught up with semantics when listening and making music but it’s not that serious. Just listen, just make it, just enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois: Julliet

Apparently it’s July, welcome. A lot happened for us in June, we had the most traffic EMPT had ever seen and got shut down in the same month. Our diabolical hosting company Gisol Inc. stole our website and content so we’ve had to rebuild from scratch – no easy task. But atlas there is light at the end of the tunnel and what could be more suitable to celebrate our return then announcing the July version of Steph Lund’s beloved Le Miel du Mois! With that said, here is an excerpt from Steph hinting at the masterminding that helps create this tape:

Le Miel du Mois: Juillet: With the constant rain in June and thinking about the intense heat on its way, this mix reflects the restlessness of summer.
Spotlight Track: The last track is from Paris based artist Three Leaves and a Head – a remix of Radiohead’s Reckoner, off the In Rainbows album. I first heard of Three Leaves and a Head from We All Want Someone To Shout For.
Remixes of Radiohead are a bit touchy for me, because I don’t see how most tracks can improve, however, these subtle enhances Three Leaves and a Head accomplished are really beautiful and a perfect way to end this mix. Check out Three Leaves and a Head’s Myspace page which also includes a remix of Nude.
