***I WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO VOTE FOR THE SONG "START SOMETHING" BY MORTEN SORENSEN***

here's what RA had to say about it (and you know you love RA):


When he's done with his day job as one-half of the mega-successful dance act Groove Armada, Tom Findlay sits down and indulges his underground jones as Sugardaddy for Tirk Records. Here, on the mysterious Morten Sorensen's debut EP for the label, you can also hear his smooth hand behind the boards.

I say mysterious not simply because this is Sorensen’s (very) accomplished first 12-inch. But more because his bio reads like a ridiculous Maurice Fulton-esque joke. Chalk it up to my heightened sense of suspicion when it comes things like this, but see if you agree: "Hailing from a small mackerel fishing village in southern Norway, 22-year old Morten Sorensen enjoyed a ten year spell spent in New York whilst his dad worked for the UN’s international maritime commission developing a love of dusty old NY disco that was to irrevocably shape his future."

Bottom line, though? The music's good. The EP's title track rescues a Chic sample from the shelf of almost any disco lover and throws a shriek, synth and bassline underneath. Deep and epic, the track is a seamless cut-and-paste.

[...]

YOU MAY LISTEN TO THIS GREAT SONG HERE: http://www.zshare.net/audio/54195765d1f2fb1e/

Goddamn illiteracy! I somehow missed Fucked Up and Nomo on the nom list (they woulda easily bumped the last two albums—Grails and Mae Shi—from my list).

That Nomo album is the third solid one from them, but I wish they didn't seem so conservative on their records. They're fucking awesome live, and skronk out a lot more. I mean, I give 'em points for making a third album that's just, like, good-to-great the whole way through, but I wants more!

And seriously, that Vampire Hands album is pretty damn fine. I really want more people to hear it. I found it through Hegelson up there, and have been loving it nearly the whole year now.

***IN A SIMILAR VEIN, AND ON THE SAME LABEL, I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO VOTYE FOR CHAZ JANKEL'S SONG "GET YOURSELF TOGETHER"***

Part of the fun of these polls is the slow reveal of the results, and if everyone posts their ballots, some OCD internerds will do the maths and work out what has won, killing the suspense (this has happened before). Why not keep this thread for PIMPIN' TRAX, and people can post their ballots when the results are in, should they wish?

Also, Get Myself Together is indeed great, and there's a nice Todd Terje edit of Glad To Know You on the B-side (which bizarrely I heard playing in Dudley's Pancake House near Finsbury Park - is it on a comp or something?). I'll check out that MORTEN SORENSEN song, too.

I like that his dad worked for the UN’s international maritime commission developing a love of dusty old NY disco . Cool job.

Late pimping for the Zoot Woman single "We Won't Break", which otherwise might be lost given it is a free digital-only teaser from an album which has been delayed two years.

I'd absolutely love this decade of music if this was in fact the sound of today.

Also, I'm feeling old. Given that I've spent the year exploring ethnic and modern academic music, I've only heard 24 of the nominated albums, and only 12 of which I'd be excited to see on a year-end best of. I'm just sending in a list of those, and forgoing additional votes that would say more about my corner of ILM's demographics than exceptional music of the day.

Runaway - Brooklyn Club Jam (I think I like the Brennan Green version better, has a pretty piano line)

Loving Hand remix of Lykke Li - Little Bit. I've never heard the original, but this is beautiful.

how about we post ballots AFTER the poll to review instead of while we're waiting. i'll direct anyone who posts their ballot here to send it in via email if they forgot. i think the thread is better used for campaigning anyway.
