Breaking out of the pop bubble.

This post was brought to you by the ice cream I'm eating right now. It's time for electronica and jazz.

Apparat - Not A Number [download or die]
I have a mix I use for studying made up of wordless electronica, someday I'll post some of it. This track made it onto there the first time I heard it.
Things I love about this track: the intermingling of three layers of music, oftentimes a violin and an undefinable beat, coupled with the ongoing sound of what sounds like malleted handbells, though I'm sure it's not. The result is simply beautiful.
Apparat is Sascha Ring, a sexy sexy German man.

Buy Walls (released May 15) from Rough Trade / eMusic (and Stream it!)

Project Jenny, Project Jan - 320 [download or die]
When I listen to Project Jenny, Project Jan the head bobbing urge is unstoppable, I'm paranoid thinking people will stare at me. I get the sense listening to PJPJ that Sammy Rubin and Jeremy Haines (both guys, despite the band's name) have the same problem. They're touring with Fujiya and Miyagi, which should be reason enough to check them out.

July 12 - Grog Shop in Cleveland, OH!
