Eric August - Wake Distance Future [2011]

Thanks to Eric August for the e-mail.

Eric August describes his music as "lots of beats going on with plenty of hidden artifacts buried underneath walls of ambiance, mixed in with a couple druggy day-time dancefloor tracks for good measure".

You'll have to listen to experience that. Seriously, this is some good refreshing electronic music I've come across in a while.

ex-Girl - Endangered Species [2004]

eX-Girl are a beautiful example of information overload. Jagged 3 part vocal harmonies, adventurous arrangements, and songs that hook you like the sucker that you are. Take all of these treats, wrap it in an ultra-bright technicolor live show with surreal homemade costumes, and you've got the sensation of being strapped in on an out-of-control carnival ride that will leave you standing in line waiting for another turn.
