The Nerdist podcast #364: Josh Homme from QOTSA

Josh Homme does a great Arnold Schwarzenneger impression. This is a suprisingly nerdy episode of Nerdist but well worth a listen. They talk about Bill Murray a lot and Homme is really cool, not to mention charming. Swoon.

(Show starts at 4.35)

Trickski: A Deep, Dirty 'n' Sweaty Disco Excursion

I don't know much about Trickski (trick like trick, ski like ski) apart from the fact they made one of the most savage tracks of all time with the most amazing name (which I've posted before, Pill Collins) - but they've also a bunch of whopper mixes on their soundcloud page I am just discovering now. They just recently put a DL link onto this one from a few years ago, and it's deadly. Quality disco and deep house vibes. They are also obviously very good at naming things:

Image from this place

Still playing catch up, only listened to this at the weekend, a quality, upbeat, french-housey mix heading into some whopper tunes in it from The Supermen Lovers. No tracklist but tunes from Alex Metric and that Joel Compass - Fucked up (Compuphonic Remix) is SO good. I also hadn't heard that Tomas Barfod track 'Till We Die' - it's amazing.

When Björk Met Attenborough

"The line blurs between music and nature, 
because that's almost like the same thing to me." - Björk

Björk met up with David Attenborough during the making of Biophilia. This documentary show them talking and is basically an hour long love-in for nature, the universe and all things musical. It shows some of the amazing lengths Björk went to and some of the amazing intruments people have made, using tesla coils and massive pendulums to harness physical forces and turn them into visual and musical instruments. ("Bjorks creativity is sometimes ahead of what we can do technically") and has David Attenborough being a total legend as per usual. Oliver Sacks also features, talking about the amazing power of music on memory. Beautiful.

"No, I love nature more"

Bjork plays The Electric Picnic this year, get tickets here.

The R in R Kelly stands for Real Talk

The first Moshigogo mix I ever posted on Swooner was nearly a year ago and is the one where every track sampled some sweet R'n'B tunes. His latest mix does it again! So happy right now. "Featuring remixes and samples from some of the best R&B tracks from 1990 to 2007. The girls are represented by Aaliyah, Jade, Ashanti, Janet, Destiny's Child, Mariah and J-Lo, while the guys on here include Blackstreet, Dr Dre and R Kelly amongst others."

AH! The joys of having internet back after 2 weeks of none. So long books! And look, finally, Beardyman's TED talk is up! It's way too short if you ask me, but I'll take what I can get. Remember, you can't spell Beardyman without dreamy.

If you can't see the above box, click here.

If that wasn't enough for you I posted a set that he did in India last year with the Beardytron. Check it out here. I've also posted another TED talk, the one that Reggie Watts did, check that out here, it's well worth a look.
