Yum, new Boards of Canada. Reach for the Dead from the Tomorrow’s Harvest album dropping on June 10, 2013. This track is available for purchase now at Bleep.

Also, there should be a cover/parody band called Bored of Canada. Just sayin’…

This melodysheep guy totally gets it. Two legendary comedians, Bill Hicks and George Carlin, offer their perspectives on life, through song.

Ah, here’s a cut from the new Benji Vaughan (aka Process and half of Younger Brother) album. It’ll be released in Spring 2013 on Twisted Records. I love the raw, analog, chunkiness of it, paired with its subtle psychedelic layers and evolving composition.

If you love this vibe as much as I do, then you should also check out his track on the recent Eclipse 2012 – Following the Eye of God compilation:

I absolutely love this promo spot for Moog’s new Sub Phatty synthesizer, with music by Flying Lotus and animation by Adam Fuchs.

In honor of the new Moog Sub Phatty analog synthesizer Flying Lotus & Adult Swim veteran, Adam ‘Lilfuchs’ Fuchs collaborated on a short animation called Moog Sub Phatty: New Machine For Living. You can hear the new Sub Phatty analog synthesizer in Flying Lotus’s original score for the animation, called ‘Such a Square’. Thanks FlyLo, Thanks Adam. Love, Your friends at Moog.

Now THIS is a product video done right. Instead of a dubstep-infused blizzard of edits and mayhem, Moog slows everything down to emphasize the care and consideration they put into making this special addition Minimoog Voyager. Gear porn done right.

Max Cooper – Micron – Official Video By Dmitry Zakharov from Dmitry Zakharov on Vimeo.

This is the official video by Dmitry Zakharov for the track "Micron" by Max Cooper, released on Traum Schallplatten.

"Life comes into being, blooms and vanishes. And where all life is built of smaller parts that form a living whole, in this video I created fractals of human body parts that are born, bloom to form a larger, more coherent whole, then die. They're abstracted hands, ears, and faces similar to Max's earlier 'positive mutation' visuals – tying a minimalist look in with abstracted shapes. Max often works with ideas around the aesthetics of science, and I wanted to connect the scientific idea of fractals to the experience of life itself."
– Dmitry Zakharov, animator.
