Fennesz is electronic artist Christian Fennesz of Vienna, Austria. “The Liar” is a track that is a pure aural attack that affects some other senses as well. I learned about it through NPR’s All Songs Considered.

My groove this week is “Proxy” by Dutch DJ/Producer Martin Garrix. I first heard this on the most recent Tiesto’s Club Life Podcast. This certainly makes me want to dance, or maybe just strut. Actually, with baseball season starting this week, I think this will be my walk-up music.

I’m a hipster for St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark, and thus excited by the release of her recent eponymous album. “Digital Witness” is one of the most striking tracks off that album with its funky horns (or synths disguised as horns) and get-up-and-dance-at-a-funeral groove.

I learned about it via Said the Gramophone.
You can listen to “Triumph of Disintegration” and the rest of of Montreal’s Lousy with Syvianbriar below

Marissa Nadler is a singer-songwriter from Boston, but I’d not heard of her before now. In fact, “Dying Breed” is not a new song, but one she released back in 2007. Luckily, German DJ Stefan Biniak is more up to date on Boston artists and has added the perfect groove to her vocals in this remix.
