Delorean – Stay Close

subiza452

Barcelona band Delorean released their new album Subiza yesterday. I am listening to it now and every track on this album makes for the perfect summer soundtrack. Here is the first single titled ‘Stay Close’ which reminds me a bit of Swedish duo The Tough Alliance. I would also recommend watching the video for this track. It’ll make you long for warm weather and making memories in the sun.

Jamaica – I Think I Like U 2

rephlektorlist_coverartworklores_1

The band formerly known as Poney Poney has transformed into a band now called Jamaica. Their upcoming album, to be releases this August, is produced by Xavier de Rosnay (of Justice) and Daft Punk sound Engineer Peter Franco. This is a track from the upcoming album called ‘I Think I Like U 2′ that I find to be extremely catchy. Also check out the video directed by So-Me.

Snowden – No One In Control

snowden-slowsoftsyrup-608x560

We haven’t heard from Snowden since their 2006 debut album Anti-anti. They have broken the four year silence with an EP release titled Slow Soft Syrup that changes tone a bit from the dance-rock sound they are known for. This track titled ‘No On In Control’ opens the EP with seven minutes of a single banging drum, bells, the reverb of guitars and the drone of lead singer Jordan Jeffares’ voice. In many ways I actually think this mellow approach suits Snowden better. The entire EP is available for free download at their website.

Light Year – Night Vision EP

nightvision2

Fresh from the email box directly from BangGang 12s. The new EP release from Light Year called Night Vision is out and it is hot shit. The first two tracks from the EP are my favorite, ‘Night Vision’ and ‘Sex Education’. Both are synth infused electro jams with a tinge of house and sound like they could easily come from an artist like Kavinsky. This is the first original release, but Light Year has done remixes for such artists as Classixx, Bag Raiders and Toecutter.

Marina and the Diamonds – I Am Not A Robot (Passion Pit Remix)

Marina and the Diamonds

Earplug has just released a list of their top 10 favorite artists from SXSW. Topping that list is Marina and the Diamonds, aka Marina Diamandis, who just released her EP titled American Jewels. I am really digging this remix from the EP done by Passion Pit of the track ‘I Am Not A Robot’. It’s got a nice retro-synth sound and that noticeable Passion Pit sound. This will be a good one for springtime cruising with your windows down.

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros – Home (RAC Remix)

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

More likely than not you have heard the track ‘Home’ floating around the internets by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. The track is a folky anthem-type love song with a bit of humor. But if the original has a bit too much “folk” for your taste RAC (Remix Artist Collective) has done a nice remix. RAC has done a great job of keeping most of the original sound but gives it a little more giddy-up and some electronic elements.

The xx – Islands (CHLLNGR Remix)

chllngr

If you haven’t heard of The xx by now you have been living under a huge rock. To be honest I am not that crazy about them, but seeing how quickly they blew up a lot of people seem to. However, this remix of their track ‘Islands’ by the artist CHLLNGR gives the track exactly what the original was missing. The mellow electronic beat and drone-like synths compliment the vocals beautifully.

Late Of The Pier – Best In The Class

The other day I posted the video for this track. It’s been stuck in my head since, so I felt like I had to post it. It’s a single from Late of the Pier called ‘Best In The Class’ which was released at the beginning of this month, and it’s the best thing I’ve heard from them since ‘Bathroom Gurgle’. A perfect anthem to celebrate the beginning of Spring. Download and get down.

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.
