Bzangy Groink Playlist 4/11/09


There wasn’t one best new track, there were three! All from the featured album by Vitalic, ‘Flashmob.’ I’m guessing it’s not inspired by Larry Niven but even so, it’s my fave electronic record of 2009 (so far!). It’s dancey, demented, dissonant deliciousness. The track ‘Flashmob’ itself sounds like Louis and Bebe Barron discovered the funk in a Krell basement somewhere, humping some fat Idmonsters. It’s such a good album, a perfect antidote to the reams of generic electrodancewhatnot out there.


The best old track is kind of a cheat. Because it’s new. The recording is, the song is old. Well, I think it is… The track is ‘Three’s A Crowd’ by The Dorktones. It’s off an album by them that you can listen to here. (And buy!) As far as I can make out, this is a covers CD. Certainly, it’s got classics like ‘Girl That I Knew Somewhere’ and ‘Girl Don’t Tell Me’ on it. But I’ve googled the lyrics to ‘Three’s A Crowd’ and got nowt. Nuffink. I know I know it but where from?? Can anyone elucidate? Whatever, it’s a wonderful old… er new or old track!
