Japan
by Tycho featuring Saint Sinner
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

Tycho will be performing at Seattle's Paramount Theatre on Sunday, September 8th, 2019. Scott Hansen, aka Tycho, explains this new track being inspired by a recent trip he took with his wife to Hakone, Japan to visit some of his wife’s Japanese relatives. "I was thinking a lot about the kinds of electronic music instruments I had been using when I first started making music in the late '90s. With “Japan,” I was trying to recapture a part of that sound and combine it with the imagery and experiences from my trip to Hakone. I sent the song to Hannah (Saint Sinner) with nothing more than the title of “Japan” and she wrote all of the lyrics." : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL8OU6zKlvc

When It's Cold I'd Like To Die
by Moby
(12 plays) | (1 fan)

Moby said, "The song 'When It’s Cold I’d Like to Die' originally had a lot more going on. The original version of it, there were maybe some drums and a bass line and some other elements. It just wasn’t as interesting. There was something about removing 90 percent of the elements that actually brought out the inherent vulnerability of the song. That was something that I learned: Sometimes by reducing the number of things in a piece of music and ostensibly making it less technically viable, you actually enhance the strength of the music."
