Ascii Disko, "Dirty! Filthy!"
Ascii Disko, "Baphomet"
One of my favorite in the new generation of house/electro kids, Ascii Disko seem to be slept on by the blog world. My guess is that Ascii Disko, a.k.a. Daniel Holc, haven't been consistent enough with their releases, as their discography is pretty light despite being together since 2003. Hopefully, we can remedy this a little bit, as I think that people who have been fiendin' for the Digitalism, Ed Banger, dirty electro bangers will find a lot to enjoy.
These tracks come from the most recent album on Ladomat 2000, Alias. I'm prone to hyperbole, so let me just say that these are the greatest songs I have ever heard ever. No, seriously, they are some of the hottest tracks I've heard in a minute, especially the first, "Dirty! Filthy!," which features a dude repeating the words, "Dirty, filthy, rough" over a great bassline and keyboards. Definitely on my first mix, just FYI. The other track, "Baphomet," is quite nice too. The bass is simply enormous; I wish that I could hear this play on some amazing club system, it deserves it. It might be an even more dancefloor friendly song, as restraint seems to go with the vocals, making this one raaaaagggggeeeee. Buy the album here, highly recommended.
-To all the real downtown kids: head to Home Sweet Home on 131 Chrystie Street (that's south of Delancey for the record), where my bol Project Matt and Patrick O'Dell of Epicly Later'd will drop music that makes you want to fight and fuck. Guaranteed good time, more to come on NYC jumpoffs shortly.
-I truly thought that the video I posted about yesterday, where the President butchers the English language and clearly has no idea what he's talking about in regards to the Mideast, was the nadir. But wait, my dear readers, we hadn't even come close to the bottom I now realize. Today, we get this US News and World Report gem:
He loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. A top insider let that slip when explaining why President Bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. But he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. He's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides, but forget about getting people to gas about that.
That's right, folks, the President of the United States, the leader of the Free World, Commander in Chief, likes to fart when meeting aides for the first time. I am speechless. [Via TBogg]
-I had other stuff to say, but I'd rather just leave you with that quote above.
