Hipster Disco

disco, n. a style of popular music for dancing, usually recorded and with complex electronic instrumentation, in which simple, repetitive lyrics are subordinated to a heavy, pulsating, rhythmic beat

An underappreciated genre, in my opinion, as most people only associate it with 70s era John Travolta. But there are many modern artists producing fine disco tunes that will make you want to shake your badonkadonk all up and down the dance floor.

Feist – Inside & Out (Sumo remix)

Other Lives

Saw these guys on Friday at Lincoln Hall in Chicago and was quite impressed, if not blown away, by the show. They have toured with Bon Iver and will be opening for Radiohead this summer, so it’s likely they’ll be big in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, do yourself and favor and download their latest album (Tamer Animals). I assure you, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
