Kool Thing: Light Games

Whatitdo Wurld,

Berlin-based duo Kool Thing tear it up with this groovy dark wave video for their new single & EP “Light Games“.  Orginally from Dublin and Sydney, Jon Dark &  Julie Chance have been making music under this moniker since they met in Paris mid 2010.  This is more than just female-fronted synth pop.  Jon is a classically trained musician and Julie is a multi-talented artist and photographer.  Watch out for their full length debut which should drop sometime this year.

M83: We Own The Sky

Happy Friday Earthlings,

Peep M83‘s  “Midnight City” from their  off of their 2011 album “Hurry Up We Are Dreaming“.  Although they’ve been around most of the decade of 2000, M83 definitely crushed it worldwide in 2011.  French Bandleader Anthony Gonzales named the band after the space spiral galaxy Messier 83.  SwitchFlip has been a fan since they remixed Bloc Party’sThe Pioneers” from their 2005 album Silent Alarm Remix. “We also really dig their 2008 video “We Own The Sky“.  Very fitting for this gorgeous 80 degree weekend here in Sunny Venice Beach!  Enjoy!

WZRD: Brake

Whuusshuupyo,

It’s been a while since “Cudder” put out something that we really stand behind here at the SwitchFlip Headquarters.  However, this WZRD project shows CuDi’s growth by collaborating with Dot Da Genius and floating into uncharted rock territory.  This recording of “Brake” sounds a bit live and the immediacy of the track n vocals give it an edgy sound.  We heard they’ve released the track list to their upcoming debut album aptly titled after their band name.  Let’s cross our fingers for a “pushed back” February 2012 release.

Baths: Lovely Bloodflow

Whatido Wurld,

Shout out to my bro Nobody Famous for rekindling us w/ the music of “Baths” 2010 release “Cerulean“.  Will Wisenfeld  (aka Baths) is a local SoCal LA native whom used the moniker “Post-Foetus” back in 2009-2010 with his itunes release “The Fabric” and Low End Theory performances  here in LA. This young hipster’s style is an experimental chillwave ambient hip hop style ala Flying Lotus-meets -Washed Out. Perhaps even his rarely oft falsetto is reminiscent of D’Angelo sippin’ that purp underwater.  Peep the story in the video..it’s really fresh how the message is separate from the music, yet it still blends well simultaneously. #SwitchFlipCertified for shizzle.

Paul White: The Doldrums

Happy Friday Earthlings,

U.K.’s Paul White provides an animated “eye-gasm” for his single “The Doledrums“.  He’s had some great U.S. Hip Hop collabos this past year , so check his work “Rapping with Paul White“. The Remix EP is pretty dope too.
