Cosmic Vibrations from the Fred Perry Artist Lounge session at CMJ

The closest thing to a studio version of Cosmic Vibrations came together last October during CMJ, when Foxygen recorded two tracks (“In The Darkness” being the other) at what sounded like an entertaining recording session (eight different bands recording in sequential 1-hour blocks). MP3 versions can be downloaded with an email signup at the link above:

I do prefer the organ solo in the breakdown at the end, like in the 3voor12 session. But in terms of sound quality and vocals, this is the best version yet.

Spoonerisms

Another old track from the high school days, this one is called “Spoonerisms” and might actually be a Rado solo affair that is more of a gag than an actual song:

From their description:

Jonathan recorded a fake cd for edwin and eric to make fun of. its called ‘spoonerisms’.

The 8-bit “Twinkle, Twinkle” at the end is a nice way to go out.

Fuck You, Man

An old, old instrumental track that was apparently on “Songs in the key of K: Jon Kaplan Volume 1”, an early self-recorded EP:

From the original description:

new song, babies. were recording an EP called “SONGS IN THE KEY OF ‘K’…SONG OF KAPLAN”. this ones called “Fuck You, Man”. that album is very folketronic. yes, thats right, we invented a new style of music. maybe it’ll catch on.
