No remixes this week.
Sorry, I’m listening to a bunch of new stuff to try and find something new and great. So I’m crashing my column to write the kind of stuff you don’t normally hear from me. And what might that be? Normal music blogging!
My #1 all-time favorite band is Franz Ferdinand. I did a report on them in 10th grade for crying out loud. Anyways, I was made aware of a new song by them earlier today, and I can’t not (grammar?) share it.
The song is called “Lucid Dreams”. This is something else that struck me. I’m big on lucid dreams. I’ve been trying all the different methods to invoke lucid dreaming for years.
For those unfamiliar with lucid dreams:
A lucid dream is a dream in which the person is aware that he or she is dreaming while the dream is in progress, also known as a conscious dream. When the dreamer is lucid, he or she can actively participate in the dream environment without any of the limitations that otherwise would feel natural to persons who incorrectly believe they are in the “real” waking world. Lucid dreams can be extremely real and vivid depending on a person’s level of self-awareness during the lucid dream. [wikipedia]
So it’s pretty trippy stuff. Anyways, I have to share this with you.

Here’s to hoping my editor doesn’t kill me, and that your ears bleed. Ω

When I was thinking about what I was going to write about this week, I was kind of clueless. But then it hit me, like a giant pile of textbooks. Franz Ferdinand. That’s right this week I will be discussing one of my absolute favorite remixes of all time, and it’s about my favorite band who’s name is based on a historical figure. No offense Dead Kennedys, Presidents of the United States of America, or Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.
I’ve had this particular remix in my possession for quite some time. In fact many summer ago, well two years ago, while hanging out with Nathan (the main writer of this blog) we listened to this song. We agreed that this remix is music that takes you places.
Franz Ferdinand – Fade Together (The Avalanches Remix) (removed 2/13/09)
I really love The Avalanches. This remix is one of a very small number of remixes they did. I’ll write about them some other day.
The real burning question on my mind, is where does this music take you?
I imagine myself sitting in a black and white film set in the 1940′s in France. It’s raining, and I’m traveling by automobile through a deserted city street.
So tell me where it takes you, in the comments below.
Till another wednesday, let those ears keep on bleeding. Ω
