Top 10: June 2011

On the menu for this month: not house music, there are other things in life.

10. How Can U Luv Me? - Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Funky & rockish! Why not?

9. Sadness Is A Blessing (Gold Panda Remix) - Lykke Li

I'm not even gonna start with this bitch. I love everything she's done thus far, videos and music.

8. Hannah (Easy Does It Remix) - Freelance Whales

Indie pop at its best. I love the dubstepesque sound to this.The video is pretty bad ass too!

7. Goose & Gander - The Generationals

One of the top 10s in April was a track in their album, "Actor-Caster". I promised to listen to the album. WELL, it's awesome, the entire thing.

6. Get Up - Jonquil

Indie Rock! Baby, I think you might like this. =)

5. Fiebre Tropical - Chucha Santamaria Y Usted

I love the title, and the artist's name is hilarious. Chucha means "pussy", for people from the Caribbean coast of Colombia. ;)

4. Prisoner of Love (feat. Antony) - Jessica 6

3. Careful Who You Dance With (Xiu Xiu Remix) - Parenthetical Girls

I love how male vocals sound like women, and female vocals sound like men, nowadays. How ambiguously androgynous. Add indierock to that formula and voila! The video is phenom! I love the display of pubic hair, and the very end of the video is disturbing. The song is giving me Italoness (Italo Disco) all the way!

2. Lose It - Austra

Fabulous song in her debut album "Feel It Break".. already released. Get on it.

1. Trip To Your Heart - Britney Spears

I know, I know, this is too mainstream for my usual antics. However, listen to it. I rest my case.

SUNDAY SCHOOL MIXOLOGY: Freak Like Me by Michael Gayboner

ATTENTION ALL FREAKS! ATTENTION ALL FREAKS!! This edition of Sunday School Mixology takes us into outer space. We are headed for a destination where synthesizers, drum machines and vocoder's rule the people. There is no Hierarchy and the freaks who inhabit this land are free to live and roam at their own accord as the dreamy arpeggiator continuously plays.

What a perfect world that would be!

This week I've mashed and mixed some of my fav Italo Disco choons! My very first love for the genre of electronic music was Italo/Hi NRG, so I bring to you just a sample of the tracks that make life go by a bit easier when I immerse myself in their sounds. Yes, this music is my religion, it is was I practice and what I preach. Enjizzoy! -- MikeeGB

1) Freak Like Me (Distortion Intro) - Adina Howard
2) Livin' Up - B.W.H.
3) Remember - Gino Soccio
4) Are You Loving (Drumapella Mix) - Brand Image
5) Face To Face - The Twins
6) Night - Negro Y Azul
7) Love Spy - Mike Mareen
8) Poco A Poco - Carlos Perez
9) Living On Video - Trans X
10) She Has A Way (D12"co Diamonds Remix) - Bobby 'O'
11) Spacer Woman - Charlie
12) Glowing In The Dark - Experimental Products

UPDATE: iamamiwhoami ACTION!

It is most certainly no secret that we here at Funky Brewster are sickly obsessed with a certain enigmatic electronica multimedia project; iamamiwhoami and that we have been since day uno! Today has been a crazy day in the creepy world of iam and we felt it best to give some updates on all that's going down....

  • After a 6 month hiatus, iamamiwhoami returns! After much speculation that the project was over once that amazing piece of long form video imagery they called "In Concert" was completed, we get an entirely new video AND song. What's best out of this whole spectacle is that we now have an entirely new storyline/mystery to rack our brains! ; john has been hailed amongst fans as their best work yet. The video proves that iam is knocking down this illusional wall that blocks our online lives with our real lives and in a sort-of transition. See for yourself....

  • 2 weeks later the original website which aired the amazing "In Concert" updates with a promo shot taken on the set of the ; john video indicating iam will once again act in concert, yet this time we are given an exact event as to where this will take place and it is 100% in front of a live audience, or so we are led to believe. You never know with this bitch!
  • As the news leaks that iamamiwhoami is set to play at Sweden's Way Out West Festival (in short their version of a mini-Ultra) a second promo shot appears on the festival's website. A shot that is so far fetched from what this whole campaign has been about that it is very clear this is now becoming something more than just a viral campaign. This is very much a transition into a legendary electronic act. Get ready ya'll!
  • Just to add further onto the speculation a third promo image now appears on the D.E.F. Management website indicating they have signed iamamiwhoami. It should be noted that this agency is also managing head to acts such as Moby, Rex The Dog, Röyksopp, Kleerup, The Knife, Fever Ray and our beloved Robyn. The latter artists having at some point been speculated to be a part of the iamamiwhoami team.

So what does this all mean?? Who the fuck knows?? When do you ever know what anything in iam's world means?? While there may not be a distinct meaning to this all, it sure as hell is A LOT of activity coming from the iamamiwhoami camp. Activity that should prove to benefit the die-hard fans who thought they'd been left high and dry and newly interested parties alike.

We've got a couple of month's to go before the festival (August 11 - 13) takes place and in true iamamiwhoami fashion you can be sure some sort of YouTube spectacle will appear to prepare the world for their LIVE debut. We couldn't be more excited unless of course we are unable to view this spectacle online at some point.

See, their plan/tactic has worked all along. Keep it locked for the latest and greatest news on the one and only iamamiwhoami! LONG LIVE OUR MADRAGORA QUEEN!!!! :::go look it up if you don't know what that means:::

Peace & Love Grease,
