Bon Iver

Normally, when a singer known for his folksy sound takes on more electronic influences in production, the result is still good, but loses something in the translation. Thankfully, that’s not the case with Bon Iver. This eponymous follow-up to For Emma, Forever Ago keeps the most intimate, important piece of the prior recipe — Justin Vernon’s voice — while expanding the band’s selection and scope, mixing in bits and pieces of other genres until it culminates in a final track that’d be perfectly at home alongside ’80s ballads yet never sounds unoriginal. This is just seriously stunning!

The Best iPod Nano Wristwatch

Here’s the most well thought out solution we’ve seen yet, designed by Scott Wilson, head of MNML studio (and creator of the case for xBox Slim). You’ll notice that these designs look a mite more butch that most Nano bands. That’s because Wilson chose to play off the tough, industrial detailing of the Nano, rather than obliterating it with cuteness.

You can’t quite buy these just yet though — Wilson is producing them himself, and funding the effort through Kickstarter. For $25, you can pre-order TikTok (which will be $35 at retail); for $50 you get LunaTik (which will be $70 at retail). Wilson expects them to ship in about a month, just in time for Christmas.

Donavon Frankenreiter Signature Travel Guitar

If you Google mustache chances are the third or fourth hit, behind a certain megalomaniac mass murderer from Germany, is Donny. Facial hair and scary Germans aside, Donavan is a very stylish surfer and successful musician. Therefore, it totally makes sense that he has his own travel guitar model to take with him and play at beach bonfires.

808State: Don Solaris

In the late ’80s, Eight-O-Eight State were at the forefront of England’s still developing electronic music scene. Now, thanks to the mercurial trends that define the genre, the Manchester collective is nothing more than a blip on the techno radar. While new styles like drum & bass and hardfloor take the spotlight, Eight-O-Eight State continues crafting remarkable albums that sound like none other. Don Solaris is one of the most impressive electronic music outings of 1997, if not necessarily the most innovative. Pulling in vocal contributions from artists as diverse and stellar as Soul Coughing’s M. Doughty (“Bond”), Lamb’s Louise Rhodes (“Azura”) and the Manic Street Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield (“Lopez”) certainly makes it contender as the most interesting. But the backbone of Eight-O-Eight State’s sound is still in its propensity for propulsive rhythms and dazzling synthwork. Songs like “Jerusahat” and “Black Dartangon” practically soar out of the speakers. “Don Solaris” is as enchanting as any of the band’s most popular work and a great testament to the potential emotional reach of electronica.

RIDE – Nowhere

“Nowhere” (album)
Re-issued: 24th September 2001
Originally released: 15th October 1990

Oxfordshire quartet Ride quickly rose to prominence in 1989, driven by the chart success of its first three EPs, the intensity of its live shows, and a hypnotic and moody sound that presaged alt-rock’s ascendance. In October 1990, the band released its first full album Nowhere, a tour de force of intertwining guitars, intimate but otherworldly vocals, and open-ended lyrics. Two decades later, the album still resonates and remains one of the era’s high-water marks. Never originally released on vinyl in the U.S. Matches the original UK album with original embossed LP jacket. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl. 2010 was the 20th anniversary of the album’s release.

Vapour Train has one of the prettiest lyrics in the world – Simple!!!

I love those early nineties Manchester Hippie Bands like The Stone Roses, The Charlatans and the Happy Mondays.
