Voltando aos poucos...

Sim... estou administrando meu tempo aos poucos e estou conseguindo reservar alguns minutos por dia para minha vida virtual.
Ainda não é definitivo... mas o N.S.T. está voltando à ativa aos poucos :D

À proposito... Jackie, por que nunca mais teve postagens suas aqui? E suas revoltas? Está de bem com o mundo?

Ripperton - Niwa

320 kbps - 66m length - 105 Mb
 As in his label's page:
Ripperton was born in the 70's, one of the most exciting times in music, which would explain his passion for soul music, his 12 inch vinyl collection which knows no bounds and his nickname, (think of one of the best female soul singers of that time).[...] His long-awaited LP is due out in early 2010. Called "Niwa", this modern piece of music mixes different kinds of sounds from varied horizons and will be released on the Dutch 'Green' label owned by friends Joris Voorn & Edwin Oosterwal Touring around the world the last decade, Ripperton spins the melodic and lush end of House, Minimal & Techno.
Definitively one of the most creative Swiss DJs of today, Ripperton is a perfect electronic music chameleon.
 Nothing to say 'bout this one, just that he is great, and I really liked his album. I've listened to A Simple Thing and The Sandbox for months.

Emmanuelle Seigner - Dingue

320 kbps - 36m length - 83 Mb
She's an actress, singer and a former model. As an actress, she's been praised by her roles in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Frantic. Her singing career started in 2006, when she joined forces with the duo Ultra Orange, becomming Ultra Orange and Emmanuelle. They've released one album, self-titled, in 2007. Personally, I loved their album, it's was a raw pop-rock with beautiful melodies and her sexy vocal.
This is her first solo effort, with a style-change, since this album has more pop than rock on it. I liked it, Iggy Pop does a duo with her in La dernière pluie, my favourite with Dingue. But, being honest, I much prefer her work with Ultra Orange.

Color of Clouds - Satellite of Love

256 VBR - 44m length - 94 Mb
  As in their MySpace:
Indie-folk outfit Color of Clouds hails from Brooklyn and Queens, New York. The group is essentially a songwriting duo, made up of singer Kelli Scarr, who appears on the Roots single 'Birthday Girl', as well as on several tracks on Moby's latest record, and producer Dan Chen, who co-writes with Nicole Atkins, Natalie Walker, and Ivana XL, to name a few.
A perfect combination of Kelli's angelical voice with a indie-folk-electronic instrumental that works wonderfully with her voice.

Lena - My Cassette Player

192 VBR - 42m length - 54 Mb

As in Wikipedia:
Lena Meyer-Landrut, also known by her stage name Lena, is a German singer. She represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Oslo, Norway, and won the contest with the song "Satellite". With her three entries from the German national final Unser Star für Oslo (Our Star for Oslo), Meyer-Landrut set an all-time chart record in her home country by debuting with three songs in the top five of the German singles chart. Both "Satellite" and her first album My Cassette Player debuted at number one in Germany, and have been certified double Platinum since.

Baths - Cerulean

320 kbps - 50m length - 115 Mb

As in his label's page:
Cerulean is the auspicious debut of L.A.'s Baths. Evolving out of Will Wiesenfeld's varied [Post-Foetus] project, and inspired by the energy of the city's burgeoning beat scene (Daedelus introduced Anticon to Baths), the record represents a clear departure from both – an often warm, acoustic-fueled electronic music that hews closer to the work of contemporaries like Toro Y Moi. By combining songwriting with self-sampling, raw musicianship with synthesized textures, and field recordings with propulsive beats, Baths has created a seething sound-cloud packed with bright moments and prone to unexpected turns.
What a sweet surprise this album is. I've had no idea what it was about, just played. And I fell in love with it in the first beat. A electronic pop with some chillwave on it, its the most delicious (if you can use that adjective to describe an album) album to hear of the year. Its sweet, happy, romantic, dense, lovely. Baths vocal (all the voices that you hear belongs to him) sometimes high-pitched, sometimes sweet, sometimes tense are amazing, as is all the lyrics in the album. And the samples are perfectly put in the songs.
Really, I haven't enjoyed an album that much since The National's High Violet in May. Which I will post, someday.
Ah, I have no idea why, the "version" that I uploaded has two more songs that the "official" release. Well, I don't think you're gonna complain for having two more amazing songs... So, enjoy!
You can WILL buy it here, or maybe here.

  1. Apologetic Shoulder Blades
  2. Lovely Bloodflow
  3. Maximalist
  4. Rafting Starlit Everglades
  5. Aminals (no, this isn't wrong) (personal favorite and the happiest song of the year)

Lunic - Lovethief

256 kbps - 40m length - 74 Mb
 As in her last.fm page:
Lunic is the music of American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and poet Kaitee Page. Born and raised in Albany, NY, Page traveled the world before starting Lunic in London, UK in early 2008. A classically trained violist and a self-taught pianist, songwriting was a natural progression for Page, whose music reflects the sounds of each city in which she has lived: Nashville, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, & London. In particular the music of the English, Alt/Rock band Muse inspired her to transform poetry into song. Page also cites her other main influences as Placebo, Joy Division, IAMX, Paramore and Metric.
Lovethief is Lunic's debut, released last year. Although being her first album, it shows a mature sound, with inteligent and beautiful lyrics, a very good instrumental and her cute rock voice. You can buy it here.

Gotan Project - Tango 3.0

192 VBR - 44m length - 59 Mb
Tango Project is an album released in 1982, by a assemble of American musicians that came together to release a tango album. This album ressuscited the tango, popularizing it again in the whole world. Their rendition of Carlos Gardel's Por Una Cabeza was very successful, being used in a lot of movies, but is instantly recognized by its use in the emblematic dance-scene of Scent of a Woman, in which a blind Al Pacino dances gracefully with Gabrielle Anwar.
Phillip Cohen Solal, a French, Eduardo Makaroff, an Argentine, and Christopher H. Müller, a Swiss, decided to pay a tribute to this famous project that had brought tango to mainstream again and made a play with the word Tango. They then became Gotan Project. Mixing electronic music (such as beats and samples) with the classic tango, they do the called tango nuevo.
This is their fourth album, and they're still amazing and inventive.

High Places - High Places vs. Mankind

320 kbps - 39m length - 105 Mb
As in Wikipedia:

High Places is an indie rock band originating from Brooklyn, NY, recently relocated to Los Angeles, CA. The band is a duo comprising multi-instrumentalist Rob Barber and vocalist Mary Pearson. [...] Since its inception, High Places has created a signature sound out of using bass-heavy, yet crisp beats, lilting vocal melodies, syncopated rhythmic lines performed on folk percussion instruments, guitar duets turned into treated samples, and percussive lines created from the manipulation of household objects. The duo has an “exquisite corpse” style of songwriting where they exchange ideas back and forth, challenging one another’s expectations. The songwriting is expansive and fluid, all the while managing to be concise. Overall, the compositions are settled and assured. High Places gravitates toward the organic over the electronic, and that natural aesthetic adds warmth and intimacy to the recordings.

Do I need to say anything more? Their sound is GREAT! A criative mix of electronic with organic sounds, with wild beats all over it and the percussion beating the whole album, her voice is smooth and ethereal and somehow fits perfectly well in their sound. Listen to it!
