I’m sure most everyone’s heard Mouse On Mars before, but being a favorite, I though I’d post up a couple tracks. These guys have been around since 94, comprised of German duo Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma. Their live set is amazing, performing as a full band with drummer Dodo Nkishi rocking a giant afro with headphones who absolutely doesn’t miss a beat.
Niun Niggung – Disk Dusk
Radical Connector – Wipe That Sound
Cool work from Brooklyn-based Wyeth Hansen. Be sure to check out his motion graphics. He has some nice videos for The Rapture and Mobius Band. I especially like the AIGA Move 3 videos.
My friend Anthony is making new music in Austin, so be on the lookout for FM Campers. Ice Cream Creatures is a sample of his previous electronic-influenced stuff.
Here’s a bit of Talking Heads right before they signed to Sire, the earliest known recording of them. They were tight as hell even then. There’s a quote from Village Voice right around this time which referred to David Byrne as a “skinny, neurasthenic Roy Orbison with the voice of a psychotic fifteen-year-old and he isn’t even fifteen.”

Johnny and Thom play “The Rip” by Portishead. (LGT original with a splendidly animated video.)
