SoundCloud is Playing On My Blog: I Am An Embedded DJ

Lately, posting YouTube clips has been a big part of what I put up here on the Pulmyears Music Blog. As you may have read in previous entries, however, I have been trying to find a better way of putting up Audio Only content and have been researching it. You may have read my piece on SoundCloud. Well, today I’m just testing the idea of embedding tracks from SoundCloud to my page. I quickly went in to their library and found a few tracks I’m familiar with already:

Like this Joanna Newsom song “Good Intentions Paving Company”, which I’ve been obsessing over lately.

And here’s the SoundCloud for Neon Indian’s “Deadbeat Summer”, a track which samples Todd Rundgren’s “Izzat Love:

Neon Indian's chief: Alan Palomo

And yesterday I told you about that new New Pornographers track, “Your Hands (Together)” from their forthcoming album Together.

Well here it is on SoundCloud:

The other night Jimmy Fallon had The Besnard Lakes on the show, and I liked them. So here’s a song called “Glass Printer” from their new album The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night.

By now I’m thinking this is fun, so I’m digging into their library like a DJ dipping into his milk crates.

LCD Soundsystem a/k/a James Murphy

How about that LCD Soundsystem from 5 years ago, “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House”? Hey they GOT it.

Here’s “World Sick” a recent track by Toronto’s Broken Social Scene from their upcoming Forgiveness Rock Record:

And the other day we mentioned Bahamas, the man not the tropical paradise, and here’s a song called “Hockey Teeth”from his album, Pink Strat.

Okay, SoundCloud works. Hope you had fun listening. One more, for old times sake, how about this sick remix from Frost Dj Sexx of The Beatles “Taxman” for all the party people in the house doing their taxes this weekend…

  1. The Taxman remix is good for kicks. 8 soundcloud clips per post might be a bit much from a file size perspective though, because it hung my computer last night. It was fine when I went back on in the morning. Might be a bandwidth issue at different points in the day. I was patient and it did end up loading eventually though. I really like the New Pornographers song. Is that Neko doing the female harmony, or that other girl?

    What is it you see in Joanna Newson’s work? That’s worth a blog post in and of itself, because I respect your opinion and good taste, but right now. I’m not convinced. lol. The one she did with Van Dyke Parks (I bought that one) bored me a bit, and I love Van Dyke Parks. I appreciate, respect and applaud her ambition and musicality, but I just don’t connect to the songs she writes for some reason. This new one you posted seems to go on forever, although it grew on me marginally with a second listen, even though I thought the beat-timed vibrato was a bit irritating. I’d rather listen to Kate Bush (the queen of projected baby voice), or Jane Siberry, or Joni Mitchell. Daddy’s getting old. ;-P

    Neon Indian is cool. He has inspired me to build a fort in my living out of my cassettes and vhs tapes.

  2. I’ve been looking around and really am impressed by the awesome content here. I work the nightshift at my job and it is so boring. I’ve been coming here for the previous couple nights and reading. I just needed to let you know that I’ve been enjoying what I’ve seen and I look forward to reading more.

  3. Check out my soundcloud!
