Butter Team Weekend Beats Vol. 24

Ever check a blog from another blog's blogroll and find that blogger is no longer blogging? It's really scary, because you wonder what happened. Maybe they disappeared in the land of frowny orange oompahs?

Until we get bored or busy, we promise to remain crescenfresher than a pair of Nike Lobster Dunks, which come with rubber bands on the toe, a tablecloth pattern on the inside and butter-colored laces.

This weekend starts off with the refreshingly underrated Air France from Gothenburg, Sweden, the closest you're going to get this year to a brand new Avalanches LP. AF uses about 10,000 fewer samples while still mainlining the subconscious undercurrent of every beautiful moment you've ever had or dreamed, symphonic vinyl crackles and faded polaroids, bam. We've had No Way Down on repeat for a few weeks, the digi version is definitely worth buying for $5.

Also funny how in February late-night headphone play was almost exclusively reserved for The Zombies, and here we are in June and nothing's changed.

Bonus retro rooftop bangers from Jaques Dutronc and The Bobby Hughes Experience whilst Yo La digs the scene with a mean gangsta lean.

Be excellent to each other.

Air France - Collapsing At Your Doorstep (from No Way Down)

The Zombies - Leave Me Be (from Decca Stereo Anthology)

Jaques Dutronc - Le Responsable

Bobby Hughes Experience - Sahara '72

Yo La Tengo - Be Thankful For What You've Got (from Little Honda)
