Song of the Day #193: Done Dying

Dan Deacon – When I Was Done Dying

Nine different animators contributed to make this segment for Adult Swim’s Off the Air (which is brilliant, and you should check out if you aren’t familiar). The song was produced by Baltimore-based electronic artist Dan Deacon.

There are interviews with all of the contributing animators here. From the interview with Dan Deacon:

Lately, I like thinking about my body, memory, and consciousness being all entirely separate and constantly changing and how they will all expire at different times. I like thinking about shifting mood as a different consciousness merging with my memories inside my physical form or my memories shifting with my form. I love that I have no way to ever measure or check reality…how it’s just a series of smearing instances that I’ll never truly know or understand. There is no constant and I think that both very serious and truly absurd.

Song of the Day #190: The City

Anderson .Paak – The City

Anderson .Paak released a new album earlier this week titled Malibu and his influence as a nouveau soul singer continues to grow. It’s remarkable see him transition from working with underground artists like Dumbfoundead and Wax to Dr Dre and the rest of the cast of features on this new album.

The song above is from his 2014 album Venice, which like his new album is a Los Angeles-reference.

Song of the Day #189: Fame

David Bowie – Fame

David Bowie passed away the other day. The degree of cultural response to his death – acknowledgement of his legacy and sadness at his passing – is remarkable.
