Mundo Civilizado  performed by Arto Lindsay  1997
Recommended by delicado [profile]

A beautiful and really unique track which merges Brazil with electronica (Arto is Brazilian, and a guy called DJ spooky added some beats). It opens with a bare, spacey beat. Fragmented guitar, vocals and organ drift in and out until the song builds into a climax with a simply beautiful synth-string sound. The song manages to be uplifting while retaining a slightly spooky twin-peaks type of feel to it.

from Mundo Civilizado (Bar None AHAON-082), available on CD

  19 Apr 01 ·secularus: Arto sings in such a sensual and soothing way. His most recent albums are well worth checking out.
  28 Feb 02 ·G400 Custom: Hmmm. I know he's Brazilian and everything, but I think Arto Lindsay's best stuff was done before he went all Latin on us. Listen to his guitar on the first Lounge Lizards album, when he manages to go 40 minutes without playing anything actually recognisable as a note.
Playground Love  performed by Air  2000

To me, this one of the most perfect songs released in recent years. It's hard to pin down what makes this track so affecting - the instrumentation is mostly synth; there is also an understated, slightly Bowie-style vocal. Overall I think it is the music itself - the fragile chord sequence and instrumentation evoke a strange sense of lost summer memories.

from Virgin Suicides, available on CD

  19 Apr 01 ·secularus: This track is sublime. Atmosphere to the nth degree. Sophia Coppola is very lucky to have a gem like this as the pervasive track to her film, The Virgin Suicides. Mesmerizing.
  22 May 01 ·tinks: that ain't the only reason sofia coppola is very lucky, but that's another story. i agree, i love the entire score to the film.
Get a move on  performed by Mr. Scruff  1999
Recommended by macka [profile]

Quality Tune! Mr Scruff is from the Ninja Tune label (Nuff said!)Find it and enjoy (Dance music, kind of!)The album has been out a while but if you haven't heard it it's well worth a listen

from Keep it unreal (Ninja Tune ZEN CD42)

  12 Apr 02 ·n-jeff: Top tune, Mr Scruff is rightly considered a god round where I live.
To keep the sample trainspotting alive, check out Lament#1 on Moondogs album from about 1970. Although 'Get a move on' is almost entirely lifted from it, it sounds quite different. A good example of using your sources well.

  25 Apr 02 ·secularus: I agree, great track, usually makes the crowd get down.
