By way of explanation, this project is a combination of experiential style guitar playing and spoken word in the Frisian language, which is a Germanic minority language spoken in the Netherlands and parts of Saxony. (I’m assuming this is West Frisian here.)

Tours-Stay EP. Bobby Cahn Records, 2011.
You may remember me going on about TUMBLEwoof, the mash-up producer behind the brillians Phoenix & Lil Wayne EP. Well, Dylan Sieh, the man behind TUMBLEwoof, is back with a new project: Tours.
Tours’ EP, Stay is a dreamy little electronic album. That’s really the best adjective for it: dreamy. You’re not going to get up and dance to this stuff, but you might sway in your seat with your eyes half open. And that’s not to say that Stay is boring because it’s not at all. There are layers of sound washing in and out like the tide. For electronic music, it has a real warmth, a natural rhythm that’s soothing rather than jarring.
What I think is most striking is that on my first listen, I could hear that this was TUMBLEwoof. Even though Phoenix & Lil Wayne was a derived work made from the music of others, this sounds like it was made by the same guy. Considering he’s putting this stuff together presumably on his home computer, that’s impressive.
Stay is available on Tours’ Bandcamp page for a dollar (or more if you really like it).

Daftbeatles took Adele’s Rolling in the Deep and paired it with the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams.” I approve.

Isosine had the genius idea to mash up Justin Bieber and Slipknot. Like, this mash up is from early 2011, but I’m just hearing it for the first time, and it’s one hell of a way to start a year.
