"Roosevelt is always looking for that special moment. The producer – Marius Lauber – utilizes outstanding electronics, matching club tropes to pangs of melancholy, all wrapped up in gorgeous melodies" https://cityslang.com/artists/roosevelt

"This song reminds me of a dark club with a disco vibe where you can dance until 6am without even realizing it. Channel Tres’ nonchalant, soothing voice floats effortlessly over the funky beat. Right when you think the song is about to slow down after the chorus, it drops right back into the beat and keeps on going. This song will make you remember those days of dancing with your rave babe without a care in the world. Oh how we miss that."

Da Funk
by Daft Punk
(97 plays) | (0 fans)

Daft Punk are a French electronic music duo formed in Paris in 1993 by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter. The music video for this song is quite interesting. Although the video has drawn several interpretations, Thomas Bangalter has stated: "There's no story. It is just a man-dog walking with a ghetto-blaster in New York. The rest is not meant to say anything. People are trying to explain it: Is it about human tolerance? Integration? Urbanism? There's really no message. There will be a sequel someday" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmi60Bd4jSs

" Smart underground poetry from Jonathan Richman at his most poignant, lyrics that glide away from the mainstream but are not too obscure for the intuitive underground rock fan. " https://www.allmusic.com/song/astral-plane-mt0032758853

Will Toledo says about this new Car Seat Headrest album, "I was listening less and less to albums and more and more to individual songs, songs from all over the place, every few days finding a new one that seemed to have a special energy. I thought that if I could make an album full of songs that had a special energy, each one unique and different in its vision, then that would be a good thing." https://carseatheadrest.bandcamp.com/

Pure Bathing Culture expand on “Devotion” in a statement: There are a number of songs on this album that involve one lover telling another that whatever it is they are up against, they can make it through it together, that they will support them in the process, that they want to inspire them through it. The verses of “Devotion” in particular deal with someone who repeatedly feels unconfident or like they are left behind, but are inevitably saved by love. Devotion is the act of supporting each other and not giving up; it’s what makes things magic. When we come together and make something, when we put the stars in the jewels, when we repeat this over and over again, it’s all we can do. It’s the ritual that perpetuates love. https://www.stereogum.com/2032929/pure-bathing-culture-devotion/premiere/
