TEENAGERSINTOKYO Are Coming Around

The band TEENAGERSINTOKYO have been lingering around for a while now. They have released an EP and a few singles over the past couple years, but we have been awaiting a full length for some time. The wait is nearing an end with their debut full length album Sacrifice that is due out May 24th. This video for their single ‘End It Tonight’ was just released and it has refreshed my memory of how much I like these guys.

Sobering Stats: Musicians Getting ‘Ripped’ Off?

selling_out_550

Here is a pretty well designed info-graphic (from Information Is Beautiful) about the amount of online sales a solo musician must sell in order to make a US monthly minimum wage of $1,160. It’s a bit sobering to see how little they payout is for some of these services we are buying from. I mean, $0.0017 per stream on Spotify?! It almost makes me want to start purchasing directly from the artists themselves instead of iTunes. It also makes you realize that most of the musicians and artists you listen to are probably doing it more for the love of what they do rather than the money.

XLR8R’s Take On Coachella 2010 and “DubStep Crusties”

dieantwoord2

XLR8R has written a wrap-up on Coachella this year. Their take on the festival is a bit jaded and cynical as they tend to be sometimes, but their view on what they call “Dubstep Crusties” is pretty hilarious.

“As dubstep has become the de facto rave music of the West Coast, crusty hippies have ditched Phish in favor of Bassnectar and the DJs at the Do Lab, a tropically themed tent that stood amidst Coachella’s five main stages. The dubstep featured was of the wobbly, beef-tenderizing variety rather than Kode9 or Burial, which was totally fine with the nu-ravers covered in burlap-sack clothing and glow-thingies. For some reason, the distinct scent of beached salmon clung to the area by Sunday.”

If you can’t tell by now, besides a few exceptions, I am not much of a Dubstep fan.

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.
