Your Name (Dropping)
Olafur Eliasson - The Weather Project [installation] (2003)
Vivek Shraya - Your Name (mp3): Toronto's unsigned talent Vivek Shraya revives magic in a new collection of songs perfect for summer exercise on an electronic beach somewhere outside the realism of city life. This track remembers to stretch before proceeding to sprint with an unbridled energy but careful eclecticism characteristic of the whole album's synthy bounce from The Beatles ("Fevered") to Nine Inch Nails ("Chemistry") to the Scissor Sisters (throughout). It even runs into Sara Quin (of Tegan & Sara) out for a summer jog in a yellow jumpsuit that looks a bit like Gwen Stefani. The album "If We're Not Talking" was released just this month [check it out here].
