Summer Jamz 2012

With the summer about 3/4 over, and much of our customer base at the beach, I have asked local DJ Adam Rogers to bless us with some of his summer picks of the moment.  Feel free to comment with what you are listening to right now.

Javelin - Canyon Candy 10”
This whole album has been on heavy rotation in my house. SO GOOD. Plus the short film they made is well worth a watch:

Quarteto Em Cy - Amarolina
I have been crazy about Brazillian music for a 
while, and this girl group is a particularly sweet pop flavor of it. You can sample my favorite track of theirs on the Soul Jazz site: http://www.souljazzrecords.co.uk/releases/?id=22385. This one is a close second:

El Guincho - Bombay
Picked this one up from Berenbaum himself I think. And if this is last year, well last year is still many years into the future for me typically. Over the top NSFW video complete with a Carl Sagan tribute (?) 

Niney the Observer
This guy’s sound is imprinted on my brain. Definitely some of my favorite tunes ever. Just to name a few:

The Roots of Chicha: Psychedelic Cumbias from Peru

I must have listened to this album in the car a dozen times this summer. Great driving music, great summer music, just great. Hard to sing along to for a gringo, though.

Aguas de Amazonia - Uakti / Philip Glass
This is getting a little played out by This American Life which uses it a lot for dramatic effect, but still, an epic album.


Ken Laszlo - Hey Hey Guy
I’ll admit it, I Shazammed this off Ethan at a dance party at the Pinhook a few weeks ago, but so far that’s been my favorite dance party of the summer and his Italo disco set was amazing. It’s rare I break out the Shazam. This video is wild too:


Phuture - We Are Phuture

I don’t know that much about acid house, but I know what I like. The future will survive.


Kraftwerk - Aero Dynamik
Somehow I never checked this out until recently, but it rocks.


Rhythm & Sound - Mango Drive
Played at high volume on vinyl. So much texture, so heavy.
