delphic is a band out of manchester whose sound hearkens back to a day before oasis when bands like the stone roses were combining rave sensibility and alternative rock ethos.

best coast

fuck it! go to the beach. if you're very fortunate you're already on the best coast and don't have to go far.
this track is pure golden beach pop fuzz good times. like "holy shit! where's my hula hoop?" good.

best coast when i'm with you

royksopp forever

i'm seeing royksopp perform tonight for the first time. their unique brand of quirky norwegian electro dream pop always sounds frosty and crystal clear on record. so their live album shocked me the first time i heard all the raw crackling energy and outright rock power these two can create onstage.

example 1: sparks

downtempo chanteus jazz chill out morphs into a propulsive analog drum chop-up live. both versions stand alone.

royksopp sparks (live)

and something a little more current. fellow scandanavian robyn's guest spot was the highlight of junior for me. here are two versions: the glorious original and something a little harder... the girl and the robot take a trip to the disco, let's say.

parallels. 1984-style synth pop; vox sounding alternately like early madonna or a compressed, vocoded robot. it's all good (super good).
