This new Weyes Blood lp, Front Row Seat To Earth, is going to be one of my favorite albums of 2016. It's different than most new music i listen to. It has a unique new sound while nodding to the past. It reminds me of The Roches, The Carpenters, Donnie & Joe Emerson, Carol King, and/or possibly even a touch of Carly Simon, but it doesn't necessarily sound like a throwback record. It's a powerful and emotional record. Subtle in ways and complex in others.

This video's been out for a month but for some dumb reason i just finally watched it today. Kedr is definitely my most favorite "new" artist as of late. She was so great to see live (both times, but especially in that church in Greenpoint).
I posted this because about 9 minutes into this live mix you can hear the acid house version of "Distance to the Waves" by Pale Blue. I like thinking of people in an Ibiza dance club going crazy to this particular track.
