    Tracks of the Week: Seeds

    Devendra Banhart "Pumpkin Seeds" - This is my favorite Devendra song. It's what got me hooked on his debut album Oh Me Oh My... The Way The Day Goes By The Sun Is Setting Dogs Are Dreaming Lovesongs Of The Christmas Spirit. Phew. That's a mouthful. Recorded on a shoddy four-track (hence the fuzzy sound), this song has a very intimate quality, and it's probably one of the more tender things he's done. Go see him when he passes through your town. Buy It.

    Slag Boom Van Loon "Poppy Seed (Boards of Canada mix)" - This is a who's who of sorts in Intelligent Dance Music. IDM, an electronic music genre that reached its peak at the end of the last decade, was a breeding ground for acts like Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Global Communication. Two more artists that benefitted from this movement are Muziq and Speedy J -- the duo behind Slag Boom Van Loon. With this track, you get their techno wizardry plus the added bonus of a Boards of Canada treatment. Gorgeous. Buy It.
