FTRK #52 = "What They Found" by The Octopus Project


What They Found - The Octopus Project (Clip)(2002)

What They Found is a progressive combination of a synthetic children's piano backed against the omnipresent beat of the precussion. The bass weaves its way between the curious combination in an empowering manner as the music pursues some sort of hike of an introduction (to the "Identification Parade"... or in an imagery sense, as the embodiment of the album title), before finally settling down into silence.

FTRK #51 = "Bicycle" by Unknown Mortal Orchestra


Bicycle - Unknown Mortal Orchestra (2011)

This is a summer tune, perfect for the computer speakers out on a sun-soaked beach. It's a carefree yodel about pleasant trips on two wheels. The sound is dampened like the sixties and works its traditional rock ensemble with a feeling of carelessness. Thrilling.
