Sleigh Bells – Infinity Guitars Music Video

Sleigh Bells are my favorite new band of the year. I can’t wait to see them live.

Stream Röyksopp’s Entire New Album ‘Senior’

Royksopp

Röyksopp’s upcoming album Senior is said to be the older, darker counterpart to their previous album Junior. It’s nearly a complete 180 from the happy sounds of Junior. Dark and mysterious, the album takes a much different and dare I say even quite odd approach. Stream the entire album below and pre-order here.

Senior by Röyksopp

Röyksopp – The Drug Music Video

The Uniques CD Artwork by Pišta Kráľovič

PosterClosedDetail_600

The art of CD cover design has nearly joined the art of record cover design and is all but gone. However, there are still a few people out there doing some pretty amazing designs with their CD releases. Like this design by Pišta Kráľovič for his band The Uniques.

“I made this album cover for my band packed into an A3 poster. After I folded it I realized that the paper has so much friction that it holds the CD without any glue or plastic.”

I am pretty sure I have posted about 8tracks before, but recently they updated their interface a bit and I have had a renewed love for the site. The website’s simple, elegant website allows for users to create, share and listen to mixes compiled of all genres of music. A great way to discover new stuff.

Jef Barbara – Wild Boys Music Video

Today I got a submission in my inbox that had nothing more than a link to this amazing music video for ‘Wild Boys’ by Jef Barbara. Many videos that try to replicate that retro 80s look fail miserably, but this video was either really shot with a super-old VHS camera, or the effects were very well-done. The previous wouldn’t surprise me considering his debut album is only being released on cassette. Awesome!

Hooray For Earth – Surrounded By Your Friends (Twin Shadow Remix)

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Twin_Shadow

Twin Shadow has been making some waves throughout the internets lately. I recently purchased his new album Forget, and I must say I quite like it. I am also really liking this remix he has done for Hooray For Earth, who I had never heard of before this song, but will surely be checking them out after hearing it.

Muscles – Girl Crazy Go (Muscles Inception Remix)

Monday, October 18th, 2010

musclesyim

The last I heard of Muscles he had quit the music business because of problems with his label Modular. This disappointed me because I love his music. However, I was happy to see that if the rumors were true at the time he has apparently changed his mind. A new EP by Muscles titled Younger & Immature is due out October 29.

Here’s a remix of the first single from the EP ‘Girl Crazy Go’. Check out the music video for the original version here. From the sounds of it Muscles hasn’t lost his musical touch, or his ego.

Sleigh Bells – Run the Heart (Bassnectar Remix)

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Sleigh+Bells+sleighbells1

Music by Bassnectar isn’t something I would normally post here. For the most part I feel his stuff is for dirty rave hippies, and if you read this blog at all you probably know how I feel about the wobbly bass-heavy Dubstep. That being said this remix done of Sleigh Bells‘ song ‘Run the Heart’ is still bass-heavy, but not completely overboard. It also manages to keep a lot of what makes the original track so good.

Martin Solveig ft. Dragonette – Hello

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

dragonette-martin

Chances are if you spend any amount of time on the internet you have heard ‘Hello’ by Martin Solveig featuring the lovely Dragonette (considering it went number one on Hype Machine). But I couldn’t resist posting this super-fun dance-pop masterpiece. It’s basically impossible not to want to dance to this song. I don’t know a lot about Martin Solveig, but from what I have heard and seen so far I am liking his stuff. Purchase the EP with several remixes on Beatport now.

Millionyoung – Local Joke (Neon Indian Cover)

Friday, October 1st, 2010

million-young

Millionyoung, aka Mike Diaz, is shaping up to be one of my favorite artist of 2010. I really love this cover he has done of Neon Indian’s ‘Local Joke’. He adds his own personality to the song, so much that it sounds as though he could have written it. I am looking forward to a full-length album from him.
