Cat Power – Ruin (Etcha Edit)

Cat Power’s original track offers her classic intonation with every verse. Drums pound throughout the song and then you get lost in the list of places and things and realize you should have a backpack on and a ticket in hand.

Etcha, an up-and-coming producer from Berlin, and is touring in Germany at the moment. Etcha, short for Etchaberri, means “house” in Basque. So he is obviously made to create dance music. His style is low-fi twists on tunes highlighting the musical signatures of each. He keeps the melodic piano which acts as the backbone to this song that moves and sounds like a chant.

He has been producing since 2010, and is really turning out some amazing edits. All I want to do is dance around my house to this Paul Simon track today. Alas, I am sitting at my work desk in a tacky Christmas jumper.

I wanted to add in a cheeky bonus track as well. This additional track to sink in to is classic Paul Simon.

Halten als erstaunlich. x

Fair Ohs – Summer Lake

fairh

You know that older kid in school who scares you half to death with his radical ideas, yet you end up getting intrigued even more by his f$#cked up yet interesting way of thinking? No? Well, Eddie Frankel was that dood in my high school. First band I ever heard him sing in was The Inch Lost Touch, a somewhat experimental raw punk thrash band. After he graduated, I heard him scream bloody murder in Cutting Pink With Knives. (Definitely not the song you want to wake your grandma up with on her birthday).
Anyway, I was catching up with him the other day and asked if he was musically active nowadays. It was then that he mentioned his new project, Fair Ohs. When I asked him what kind of sound they had, all he said was “well you know Paul Simon’s solo stuff? Kinda like that, but, you know, punk.”
That being said, I leave you with Summer Lake, one of my favorite from this crazy genre-edifying trio from London. This song is perfect for all those trying to transcend this freezing cold weather, warming their ears with a chubby set of headphones walking the snowy streets of the city. Wherever you may be, this song will take you straight to a sunny beach, sipping a mai thai from a cocktail glass with a tacky tooth-pick umbrella. Enjoy.

I keep waking up by mistake, I keep waking up by mistake…”
