This song is elegant, intimate, strong, comforting, personal, and enchanting. I only heard it for the first time on the local Las Vegas user selected music station, Jelli.com here http://www.jelli.com/kyli/.
Also, I found a remixed version of the song, or perhaps the full-length version of the song, in full house music style, with a different video on YouTube, entitled…

Rivers To Roads Master 4 by SongoftheDay
Song of the Day today is Rivers to Roads by the recently formed Australian duo called “Triforce”. Heavy Gameboy synth mixes create the framework for their unique experimental electronic blend of dark pumping tracks dipped in gold by haunting female vocals. The group consisting of Charlotte Lohman and Ryan Smith out of Sydney offer free downloads of songs off their mini-release. While busy in production building their first album this year I believe Triforce is poised to go big on the international indie electronic scene with their combined talents and rare audio combos. I’m looking forward to their next tracks, which based on their variety and uncommon style are sure to hold some surprises.

Big Black Delta’s the name, and cruising through space to electronic music’s their game. The unsigned experimental indie electronica band out of Los Angeles, aka BBD, has kept it low profile this year with only one concert listed on their official BBD website for June 29th, like 3 hours ago, or still right now! The lack of live shows is probably because they’re hard at work laying out new mind expanding riffs in the studio this year. And to show their love for fans of pulsating and mind warping sounds, they’ve released tracks off their new EP for free, get some!
If you tap into their BBD Twitter page you’ll see their recent buzz build up for the show included a tweet about a London UFO sighting and earlier today a message to a friend who couldn’t make the show, rooting him on to get some 9u$$y action. Odd timing for writing this post I think. I’m feeling blessed to have them on my Song of the Day music blog. These guys are right up my wanna-be astrophysicist video game playing alley(way).
Did I mention they’ve got a free EP for download. Please take advantage! Download Big Black Delta’s EP.
Now for the deep and heavy on this electro pop group capable of producing orchestral soundtracks. Venezuelan-born Jonathan Bates, formerly of the Los Angeles band Mellowdrone, began his solo project Big Black Delta out of the desire to create a new kind of pop music. By purposefully doing everything slightly wrong in the studio, using any instrument available, and combining it with UFO folklore, the Big Black Delta project was born. BBD’s first release BBDEP1 is available to fans as a free download on their website through topspin and BBD is putting the finishing touches on a full length LP, BBDLP.
Apart from BBD, Bates teamed up with M83 to do a remix of Daft Punk’s “Fall” off the Tron Legacy Soundtrack and was featured on and did a remix of Sonioi’s track, “Houdini”. Bates also co-produced “Mountaineer” and “Lady Killer” for the band White Sea (with Morgan Kibby of M83) and often writes and performs with them.

Which remix song is your favorite?
New digitalism, Eleven Tigers blends elements from all electronic genres into a psychedelic kaleidescope that keeps on giving. Jokubas Dargis a Lithuanian now living in London is responsible for all this madness.

Dan Black rules. This was the song that made me listen to Kid Cudi because Cudi remixed it. I want to show the comparison of the two music videos here. Tell me which one is your favorite and why…
I’ve never seen two music videos so similar in which an artist was more or less surgically inserted into half of the video the same way his vocals are added into the song. Either way, I think Dan Black makes some most incredible music. His entire album “UN” is awesome! My other favorite song on the album is U+Me, but there are a lot of other gems in the track list. Anyway, here’s the other song where Kid Cudi was added. Which of these would you make the indie electronic song of the day?
I think I just realized what the problem is with music today. PROPRIETY!!! The reason why music suffers sometimes and why good music is hard to find is that people don’t share enough, and that’s because of money and the fact that our culture does not spend money on art and music. No, instead we spend at least half of our energy and funds on building bombs to destroy things, bullets to kill people, chemicals to speed up the growth of our subsidized genetically modified food, and research how to find ways to make people dependent on drugs so they come back every month to buy more of the drug instead of actually curing people.
My point here really is that artists should be collaborating more. Just like how gene pools require and benefit from a constant mix of diversity, just like eco-systems, music needs more marriages of two diverse styles. It’s a fact, when you mix two creative and vibrant things that come from different backgrounds but that are from the same species you get the most beautiful results. I present this song to you to help illustrate my point.
Upon previewing the songs from both the band Planet Funk and the DJ producer Benny Benassi, I could not find a song that either band produced that had more richness than this one. Now, that could also mean that when you combine the total sum of time that both artists spent on the song in their own respect perhaps there was more energy poured into this song, but that’s also kind of the point. From new blood, collaboration, sharing of ideas, and having a creative dialog you get things like “The Postal Service”, “Zero 7″, and a whole slough of other bands that I can’t think of right now because it’s late and listing a bunch of bands isn’t important, because I think this point illustrates itself.
So basically, I wish more remixes were made, I wish artists started out with more “Open Source” rights to their work or collaboration was facilitated more.
It produced great results, and makes for great Songs of the Day!
