November 2007 top whatever
Long overdue: the monthly chart. Favorite tracks of the moment, for DJing or otherwise, plus some albums on heavy repeat.
Tobias Freund & Ricardo Villalobos, Odd Machine (Non Standard Productions)
One of our kick drums is missing.
Matt John, "Olga Dancekowski" (Bar25)
He's still plying that keyboard loop from several records ago, and bless him: it's another carnival track, and someone spiked the cider.
Thomas Melchior, "Out There" (Perlon)
Every track on his new album, No Disco Future, is ridiculously good, and totally its own thing. "Her Majesty" is the melancholic one, "Coming Up" the upended tumble, etc. This one, as suggested by its title, has the freaky keyboards and implacable snare.
Bruno Pronsato, "At Home I'm a Tourist" (Hello?Repeat)
Every track on his new album, Why Can't We Be Like Us, is ridiculously good, and totally its own thing. "At Home I'm a Tourist" is so spring-loaded you should wear knuckle protection.
