Favorite Songs of 2010, #11

(This is our 3rd annual “Favorite Songs” series. It’s a forum for Range Life friends and family to share and celebrate the songs that moved us and meant something to us in 2010. Songs are presented in no particular order. We’re posting weekdays until we’re spent, so keep checking back. Submissions are welcome! Send a song link and whatever you want to write to zach@rangeliferecords.com)

Today’s post is by Steve Swyers aka Say My Name aka The Kid. His S/T EP came out earlier this year on Range Life.

Song: “Galaxy in Janaki” by Flying Lotus

Song Link: HERE (mp3)

I picture skeezy, strung-out aliens lazily swaying to this song in some decrepit Martian Studio 54. The combination of harp, syrupy strings, slightly off-beat percussion, spacey keys, and the wankiest bass playing this side of a Victor Wooten CD works beautifully, somehow. Maybe I’m going out on a limb here, but I have a feeling this Flying Lotus kid is going places.

– Steve.
