God the dream chimney mixes on their soundcloud page are both dope as hell.

You should check out all the Cosmix mixes Ryan did

In case anyone's not heard them, there's some new Hatchback music on his soundcloud page.
Golden Eagle is epic

Any thoughts on the Wierd Energy CD from Windsurf? Sounds like a more 80s Sorcerer.... if that's possible!

Really enjoying Weird Energy, and also Greeen Linez - Things That Fade which has a similar aesthetic.

after only one listen i agree that weird energy is pretty great (esp "cilantro vision"). dan is one of the nicest dudes ever, good to hear he's still at it.
i love that they're moving more and more towards completely straightfaced smoove '80s balearica, seems like few people outside of the claremont 56/international feel/esp institute axis have the balls to pull this off without adding extra layers of irony or digital manipulation or w/e (tho i like that type of thing too, tbh)
i'll have to keep an eye out for that greeen linez record

i don't listen to any of this stuff anymore, i should start again

if you haven't already given it a shot, you should probably start with the hatchback record from last year - tho it's a bit more new agey/cosmic than the rest of their output
still trying to get my hands on the flights of fancy stuff, based on the samples i've heard they seem to be nailing this vibe

damn, new hatchback is so boss ... catching lots of blade-runner-OST-by-vangelis vibes

i think the peak of these dudes was "horizon" on the 1st hatchback record
so i guess wierd energy is the way to go, huh?

ha, guess you're mostly up to speed then. but yes. weird energy is definitely worth checking out.
did you ever post on the nu age hippies thread? not sure it's exactly in this vein but that was where i think most of the discussion re: that hatchback record was taking place

I guess the Greeen Linez stuff is pretty thick with 80's irony, it definitely has it's moments for me though.
― mmmm, Monday, 8 October 2012 18:28 (7 months ago) Permalink
just in case the music doesn't scream 80s enough someone's made a video..
― mmmm, Monday, 8 October 2012 18:29 (7 months ago) Permalink
^ feeling this, but the video is definitely a bit overkill. almost veering into macintosh plus-levels of '80s irony but that's not always a bad thing
and yeah that international feel compilation looks like it might be worth purchasing if you don't already have it all on vinyl. there's definitely some legit straightfaced smoothness on there, tho most of it has a proggy, sorta '70s vibe to it. if anyone is into this stuff and hasn't heard ifeel studio's "the coptic sun" you are in for a treat (i know we discussed ifeel studio on another thread, but i haven't been posting for like 2 months so i am having a hard time remembering which one).
the dr dunks remix of seahawks' "catch a star" track from earlier this year is pretty cool too, definitely a little reminiscent of "white diamond"
does anyone here know much about pacific horizons? i like what little i've heard, but most of the releases seem to be super limited and again very hard to get ahold of
― akadarbarijava (psychgawsple), Monday, 8 October 2012 20:17 (7 months ago) Permalink
I need to hear that IF comp! I've kind of slept on International Feel I think, should readdress. The last Seahawks I really liked was the Crue-L Grand Orchestra vs Seahawks' Bon Voyage Trip which is lovely but too expensive in these parts...

Should have posted the above elsewhere...

New Sorcerer sounding fantastic. Love Island Rescue:

why isn't 3:20-4:26 in Weird Energy a ten-minute epic on its own? whyyyyy
