Above & Beyond - Small Moments Like These: 21st century Vangelis revolution. Get running.
Alkalino - Memoria: Is this a guilty pleasure? A sublime tribute? Or just the greatest dose of Nirvana you'll ever hear?
Altered Tensions - Force Of Gravity (Too Much Time In Front Of A Computer Remix): Blustery and sexy and enthralling IDM pleasures, from The Answer To The Question You Forgot To Ask
Anamanaguchi - Meow: MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW!
Bar-Kays - Too Hot To Stop (D.veloped Remix): We've moved in to a new realm of mashing here, where it just becomes sample drenched goodness.
Bomb The Music Industry! - Jobs Schmobs:
Caspar - Put A Lid On It: Squirrel Nut Zippers never sounded so good.
Dan Deacon - Lots: I’m not the world's biggest Dan Deacon fan, but this track off new album America has JUST ENOUGH zip and/or pep.
Eric Harvey - Tried & True: At first it's a normal cancon-ish folk song, but oh the female harmonies come in and then it is a classic.
Memotone - Low Light
Memotone - Rooftop: The new Memotone album "I Sleep. At Waking" strides the not-so-great divide between IDM and lush modern ambient sound art pieces. Admit it, you have them all in the same folder at this point, don't you? DON'T YOU? Well make some room because this one is a keeper as well.
Mykki Blanco - HazeBoogie: Blanco Blanco Blanco all over this shit.
She & The Sun - Bad Lover: Mellowed out pop folk from the self-titled album.
The 1975 - Sex (Liar Remix): Another remix of this great track, but now all sludged out.
The Allergies - Pick-Up Lines: This takes mashups to a new level of ingenuity. It is a great example of constructed narrative that can be achieved. See also: THE NEXT SONG.
The Monkees - Mary Mary (Jim Sharp DMC Edit): Such a smart mix, letting The Monkees pop siren song blast on through the DMC breakbeats.
Urbantramper - Kate Bush Saved My Life (GodWolf Remix): Kate Bush saved us all, you just might not have realized it yet.
XXYYXX - Amaze Me: Yes, you are definitely amazing, you glorious chromosonal chimera you.
Yahtzel - Beached: Big chunky downtown spelunking bass right here.
Yo La Tengo - Cornelia And Jane: Bliss rock from the new album Fade.
