Daily Jam - When Do I Get to Sing "My Way"

I've liked Sparks for a long while, but until i watched "The Sparks Brothers" documentary earlier this year, i had no idea that they had been so prolific for going on 50 years now.  I had always just paid more attention to their stuff from the '70s.  Anyway, i've been trying to remedy that ever since, so here's a synth pop jam from the brothers from 1994's wonderfully titled "Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins."  Check out "When Do I Get to Sing 'My Way'" below, our Daily Jam.


Paperbark

Paperbark is an experimental, ambient drone artist out of Minneapolis, and he just dropped a chilly and soothing new album today.  "Inhaling Mist" sounds like watching your breath on a cold day.  Check out the album opening "The Dream Came Back" below and order the cassette here from Seil Records.

Daily Jam - Moloch

I am still patiently waiting for someone to reissue French electronic duo Principles of Geometry's 2007 album "Lazare" and 2012 album "Burn the Land & Boil the Oceans" on vinyl.  Can someone get on that?  In the meantime, here's "Moloch" from the latter, our Daily Jam.


Jonny Greenwood

Radiohead guitarist and film score composer Jonny Greenwood has three different scores out or coming out this year for Pablo Larrain's "Spencer," Jane Campion's "The Power of The Dog," and regular collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson's "Licorice Pizza."  Being Greenwood scores, they're all going to be worth your time.  Check out the wistful "Licorice Pizza" below and pre-order the soundtrack album on vinyl here (still waiting on word on a record of just the score).

Penelope Trappes

UK artist Penelope Trappes has taken all the songs from this year's earlier release "Penelope Three" and drastically reworked them on the upcoming "Mother's Blood Edition."  Check out the dark ambient drone of "Lucky Eleven" below, the sound of a world dying.  And while the cassette is already sold out, you can pre-order the download of the album here from Houndstooth.


Daily Jam - Corsair

I was fortunate enough to have the whole last week off from work.  That all ends in a few hours.  Here's Boards of Canada with "Corsair," our Daily Jam.

Daily Jam - The World Spins

Holidays can be tense.  So here's a dreamy Julee Cruise track to calm all the nerves.  Listen to "The World Spins" below, our Daily Jam.


Karl Frog

Here's a little poppy new wave from Estonia's Karl Frog late on this Saturday afternoon because i've been dealing with Christmas decorations all day.  Check out "Nuclear Submarines" below and pay what you want to download October's "Why Music?" album here.
