Paradise Circus – Massive Attack (Gui Boratto Remix)

25 08 2013

A Gui Borrato remix of a Massive Attack classic. Follow the eerie vocal line as it weaves its way through a tension-filled backdrop of pulsing bass lines and high-pitched synths. Minimalist with a not-so-minimalist impact.

Successful Alcoholics by Jordan Vogt-Roberts

19 08 2013

After a few weeks of deep beats and dark bars, I felt the Chive needed a bit of perking up. This little bit of light relief has manifested itself in the form of Jordan Vogt-Roberts’, Successful Alcoholics. This film is truly hilarious! The two leads played by TJ Miller and Lizzy Caplan really shine and as an audience you not only side with them but almost too believe that alcoholism could in the right circumstances, be a viable way of living. Eccentric and jocular, bizarre but brilliant, crack open a nice cold alcoholic beverage and enjoy this convivial cinematic experience.

John Coltrane – Central Park West

14 08 2013

Recorded in Atlantic Studios in the winter of 1960, Central Park West perfectly encapsulates a lazy meditative walk through Manhattan’s garden retreat. Coltrane’s saxophone slides sweetly through the accompaniment as if in birdsong, his melody a gentle caress on the ears. What strikes me most about Coltrane is his astounding musical intellect. This deceivingly simple song uses a modulatory cycle of ascending thirds – a technically complex structure that perfectly aids his poetic expression.
