God, the weather is beautiful lately. Windows get thrown open, shirts come off, remixes get dropped. Remixes like this gorgeous new 3-step remix by Physical Therapy. The New Jersey-based producer, always one of our favorites, reworks Finnish band Siinai’s single from last year’s Olympic Games LP into a reverb-heavy gem that sparkles like sunlight. Take off your clothes, lay by the pool, and sip some caipirinhas while you jam this one. Like a damn pimp.
Siinai – Anthem (Physical Therapy 3-Step)
Welcome our 32nd video round-up called V I D E O D R O M E. Jonas Rathsman, Julia Holter, The Russian Apartments, Prince Rama and many more
#1 Beaty Heart – We’re All Friends Here (directed by Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr.)
Beaty Heart‘s chilled out song now has a new beautiful airy video, which is set against images of psychedelic hues and close ups of anemones wafting around. Erase any festive stress and watch this beauty.
#2 Jonas Rathsman – Feeling You (dir.?)
Winter? Get ready for some dope sounding summer viiiibes from Swedish producer Jonas Rathman! It’s all about foxy dudes + nice beats + retro house vocals = win.
#3 Julia Holter – Sea Calls Me Home (directed by José Wolff)
For fans of Juliana Barwick, here’s another release from Julia Holter. Ethereal, dreamy, classical sounds blending into something beautiful. Plus: the b/w video by José Wolff is fitting perfectly.
#4 SIINAI – Anthem Part 1 & Part 2 (footage from Holy Mountain)
It’s early in the morning and I’m still pretty tired, so I may not be able to trust my judgement. That being said, I think this is the best thing I’ve ever seen or heard. Jodorovsky owns and we are very excited for their album with Spencer Krug.
#5 Morphosis – Too Far [Marcel Dettmann`s Definition 1] – Delsin (directed by the29nov Films)
After Newworldaquarium and Just For One Day already reworked some choice cuts from Morphosis‘ What Have We Learned album, we now get a new re-interpretations of a cut from the LP by Ostgut-frontman Marcel Dettmann.
#6 Leila ft. Mt. Sims – (disappointed cloud) anyway (directed by Ladypat)
Bizarre objects designed by Andy Cox move in time to the twisted track. No wonder Gilles Peterson hailed Leila as “way ahead of her time”. Really digging this joint.
#7 Maxxi Soundsystem – Make or Break (directed by somethinkmotion)
Nu-disco! Catchy classic vocals and powerful house grooves sum up Maxxi Soundsystem‘s sound on his first solo EP on Needwant. The video for the title track was made by former EB-Collaborator Kazim Kazim Kazim.
#8 The Russian Apartments – Gods (footage from Chronopolis)
This tune played during my walk to work this morning. Prefect soundtrack… Love it. Download The Russian Apartments EPs and Singles for free here. And follow on Tumblr.
#9 Clubfeet – Fall From Here (directed by Alex Goddard)
Check out the brand new video for Clubfeet’s ‘Fall From Here’. It’s the latest installment in the band’s Gold on Gold video project with Sydney videographer Alex Goddard.
#10 Prince Rama – Summer of love (directed by Prince Rama)
‘Summer Of Love’ is one of the most compelling tracks on Prince Rama’s latest album, Trust Now, and this new music video feels revelatory, an Indian and Hare Krishna-inspired celebration of glitz and glamour. Amazing!
SIINAI make introspective, hazy pop music that oscillates between buzzing electronics, waves of reverb and psychedelic plateaus of blissful ambiance. It’s heady stuff that evokes the Arctic tundra and broken hearts and we cannot seem to get them off the office stereo. So with that in mind, we are very pleased to share an exclusive Physical Therapy‘s ‘3-Step’ remix of the Finnish band’s song ‘Anthem 1&2’. Physical Therapy notch the psychedelics up or notch or two, with a swinging 2-step beat and extra helpings of reverb to make the song almost ready for the dancefloor.
Download is below. The album, Olympic Games is out in October.
