From Here To Eternity

Celebrating some of Evie's favorites from 1977! https://kexp.org/50 Giovanni Giorgio Moroder is an Italian composer, songwriter, and record producer. Dubbed the "Father of Disco", Moroder is credited with pioneering euro disco and electronic dance music. His work with synthesizers had a large influence on several music genres such as Hi-NRG, Italo disco, new wave, house and techno music. When in Munich in the 1970s, Moroder started his own record label called Oasis Records, which several years later became a subdivision of Casablanca Records. He is the founder of the former Musicland Studios in Munich, a recording studio used by many artists including The Rolling Stones, Electric Light Orchestra, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Queen and Elton John. He produced singles for Donna Summer during the mid-to-late 1970s disco era, including "Love to Love You Baby", "I Feel Love", "Last Dance", "MacArthur Park", and "Hot Stuff." -- https://bit.ly/3BuUT1R

Looking Backward

NEW MUSIC from Melody's Echo Chamber - Emotional Eternal will be out April 29th! Pre-order it here, all the kids are doing it! https://melodysechochamber.bandcamp.com/album/emotional-eternal “I hope the record has that uplifting quality,” Prochet said in a press release. “I wanted to be more grounded and mindful through the process. I guided the sessions with simplicity—a contrast with the maximalism of [2018’s] Bon Voyage and the wilderness of my delusions. I made some big and impactful decisions and changes to my life. It took me to where it is peaceful, and I think the record reflects this. It’s more direct.” The video for this track was directed and animated by Hyoyon Paik and it's stunning! https://youtu.be/83R6r2xILx8

She's So High

About the video, drummer Dave Rowntree recalled, "The head of our record company, David Balfe, wanted to try his hand at video directing. There were these neon rings suspended from the ceiling by three wires, each with someone holding a wire. He [Balfe] wanted these people to wobble the wires so that the neon rings would move. He kept shouting, 'I haven't seen the definitive wobble yet!'".: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jl0nQdzZAg0

In The Gloaming
by Trentemøller
(10 plays) | (0 fans)

New dreampop from Danish producer and musician Trentemøller -- featuring vocals from long-time collaborator Lisbet Fritze (Giana Factory). In a statement, he calls the song "renaissance pop" -- "those elements are suspended in arpeggiated synth effervescence, and backed by a modern take on a classic beat. It sounds like the future being recorded at Motown studio, if it had been located in the Thames valley in 1991. Assembled, it presents itself as a new form of electronic space pop, complete with elements of longing and solemnity." -- https://youtu.be/iqteum_Z3Kk

Happy birthday to Peter Gabriel, turning 70 today! Sledgehammer, released by British rocker Gabriel in 1986, has been described as dance-rock, blue-eyed soul, and funk. The song was influenced by 1960s soul music, in particular that made by Memphis label Stax. The distinctive horn track was provided by a horn section led by Wayne Jackson of the Memphis Horns.

Of the track Brian Christinzio says: “People that are struggling in life, be it from a stress, loss, or mental illness, are more likely to behave in self-destructive ways. The idea of only drinking when you’re drunk is the notion that sometimes we hurt ourselves because we are hurting. The verses reflect the feelings some of us have when we are plodding through our everyday lives. The choruses are what happens when these feelings get the best of us.” https://bellaunion.com/2020/02/bc-camplight-debuts-i-only-drink-when-im-drunk/

Thom Yorke wrote this song in response to a vicious review of their July 7 2001 live gig in their hometown of Oxford -- 'this person managed to totally and utterly ruin that day for me forever. And it really shouldn't have done, and I should be bighead enough to just ignore it. And there was a lesson there, which I have I learned now. But I just didn't understand why... how someone, just because they had access to a keyboard and a typewriter, could just totally write off an event, that meant an aweful lot to an aweful lot of people. And there'd been just no answering back, no nothing, that was it, the end of the story." Read more at Citizen Insane: https://tinyurl.com/4r5k9eyv
