Giraffage | Feels
I first really listened to Giraffage during a Friday PortalsMusic.com turntable.fm blow out. Basically, for all those who haven’t tried it before, it’s a virtual club room, with full-on avatars, where you can listen to other folks who play their music for you. In most rooms I’ve ever been to, it’s usually hosted by a musician. Sharon Van Etten used to host them occasionally. The day I heard Giraffage, aka Charlie Lin, there was a room full of musicians, like Steffaloo, Happy New Year, and of course Giraffage, who unleashed a few new tunes. I can’t be sure, but I believe “Feels” was one of them. The whole time, Giraffage was blowing up the cyberspace joint. For those of you who want to go to a Portals Friday show (1 p.m. CST), click here. Until then, enjoy this beautifully immersive, blip track from the world of Giraffafe. You can follow him at facebook, twitter, and soundcloud. — David D. Robbins Jr.
