MP3 blog 2013/01/11

blog 2013/01/11 - somehwat nameless, somewhat endless

And we are back to our regularly scheduled awesomeness!
Big thanks to M.S. who sent me an amazing Sol Lewitt book:  http://www.amazon.com/Sol-LeWitt-Views-Susan-Cross/dp/0300152825


Dark Horses - Road To Nowhere:  Sweet vocal layers of mellowtown pop blissout from the new album Black Music.

Death Grips - KLINK (42ghosts Remix):  The #1 priority on a DG remix is to give it some freaking SPACE.  Allow that shit to breathe and let us DJs get all up init.

Dinosaur Jr. - Don't Pretend You Didn't Know: 
Dinosaur Jr. - See It On Your Side

Do Make Say Think - Greed Waltz:  The glorious sway of the surf guitar and horns is pure coastal bliss.

Ellie Goulding - Only You (Dopeshoes Dancehall Remix):  Goulding remixes OH SO WELL and this is another perfect example.

Iyes - Lighthouse:  A taste of the XX sounds here, but ain't nothing wrong with that.

Jenn Grant - I Want You Back:  From The Beautiful Wild, Jenn Grant is the pinnacle of that CBC sound.

Jessika Kenney & Eyvind Kang - Tavaf:  I immediate go for anything with Kang on it, and the new album The Face of the Earth is an incredible notch in his discography.  Highly recommended.

Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Drank) (Bird Peterson Remix):  The top single from Lamar's debut, given an extra oomph BP.

Mann - Bend Ya ft Kendrick Lamar & Frank Ocean:  How do you end up with the #1 and #2 artists of 2012 on your track???

Mykki Blanco - Wavvy:  Blanco Blanco Blanco = hotnesssss

The 1975 - Sex (Ryan Hemsworth Remix):  Hemsworth sasses up the most overwrought pop lamentations and makes it more epic than 80s U2.

Tinashe - The Last Night On Earth (Giraffage Remix):  Remember what I was on all about with Hemsworth?  Yeah well Giraffage brings the goods too, but now with even more popbounce sweetness.

Tori Amos - Jackie's Strength (Gold Dust version)
Tori Amos - Precious Things (Gold Dust version)
Tori Amos - Silent All These Years (Gold Dust version):  TORI AMOS!  Remember her?  Remember those days in grade 10 spent weeping deeply in the corner of your school with Little Earthquakes on repeat??? DO YOU REMEMBER???  Like most people, I drifted away from Tori when she released a music video with a face CGI implanted on to a foot.  She's done stuff since then apparently, including a pretty decent album for Deutsche Grammaphone.  Following in the footsteps of Antony Hegarty, she releases an album of classics with an orchestral backing.  I'm not too critical about the newer material I don't know, but oh oh oh oh the classics, they swell!  The production is impeccable.
