Jamie xx - Far Nearer/Beat For 7" (2011)

Steel drums have never sounded so good. Opener and title track, "Far Nearer" takes the phrase "I feel better when I have you near me" and pitches the fuck out of it, creating an unrecognizable, albeit pleasantly catchy 7-minute epic. B-side "Beat For" follows in the steps of post-dubstep pioneers James Blake and Mount Kimbie. Though it's not as catchy as "Far Nearer," it'll certainly please those looking for a more sinister and dark sound. Highly recommended!

    damn it's already been taken down, think you could put it up again?

  2. Just stopping by to say thank you, thank you all for this steady stream of tunes. You've made a lackluster day bright with much-needed sonic refreshment, and I'd feel oh-so selfish not chiming back to let you fine folks know the positive effect you're having on this stranger. :)
