First up, you all should check out my new mix this Friday. It will be livestreaming starting 8pm
details up at http://www.facebook.com/events/306756056095963/
But it will rock your Friday night, looping through the evening. And if you tune in, you'll get the advance download URL. It won't be available to the rest of the world until Monday.
On with the blog!
Black Elk - Aphotic Widow
Black Elk - Sparks: Ethereal and acoustic bliss from the new album Sparks.
Bon Iver - Michicant (Pair Of Arrows Remix): This track is all about that bicycle bell ringing. SOLO! OK also the wonderful soaring background vocals.
Cajsa Siik - Was I Supposed To: Lovely little pop.
California Wives - Photolights: Short and soaring.
Carrousel - Where Do We Go From Here: Yes yes, I too thought this would be a rendition of the song from the Buffy The Vampire Slayed Musical. Still, it’s a pretty great consolation prize.
Crystal Castles - Baptism (Sound Remedy Trap Remix): Trap is mostly a joke now, let's move on.
Death Grips - Klink (Djemba Djemba Remix): Down the harsh, up the love, and let the Death Grips synths shine!
Ellie Goulding - Hanging On (Svyable + PRFFTT Bootleg): Great Goulding track gets a slight rework.
Little People - Aldgate Patterns: Soft and warm and organic IDM that tickles me so.
Oh No - 3 Dollars ft MF Doom: Tony snippet from the new Ohnomite. And yeah probably the 80th time Doom has rhymed "mic" with Dolemite
papercutz - Where Beasts Die: The vocals on here are fabulous.
Penguin Prison - Little Secrets (Passion Pit cover): The bombast of the originals probably intimidate a lot of cover events, but the adorable cuteness of this one is the perfect angle.
Photek - Pyramid: Wow, hasn't this guy been around since forever? Oh teenage junglist version of me squees in delight! But the heady adult in me appreciates the atmospheric breakbeats.
Purity Ring - Crawlersout: Another great track from the stunning album Shrines.
Soreng Santi - Iron Man (Black Sabbath cover): No explanation needed.
Soul Khan - Wellstone ft Akie Bermiss: Love me some slick and well done politically soulful musics.
The Pauses - The Beginnings of Things: Sounding a bit like Metric, all the concentrated fun.
Y La Bamba - Squawk: End it off with this pair of addictive guitar and vocals!
