Brandon’s TBE Digest 23 – [6.2.2011] New Jams, Remixes, Mashups & Covers!
Boy, this one was a long time coming. Either you are all quite patient or you didn’t notice. Either way I have been busy as heck which just means that all the tracks I had compiled got whittled down to just the gems. Rock.
For more jams by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!
NEW RELEVENT JAMS
♫ Memory Tapes – Wait In The Dark / New Memory Tapes! This guy just has that touch. Never my favorite songs in the world but I always enjoy hearing them.
♫ Javelin – Cowpoke / Javelin released a new album of western-soundtrack-esque songs that were inspired by their US tour last year through the Southwest.
♫ Bon Iver – Calgary / New Bonny Eye. Word.
♫ Two Door Cinema Club – Something Good Can Work (RAC Remix) / It came up on random in my iPhone and before I could check whose remix it was I was already thinking “Damn, this is niiice.” You can imagine my lack of surprise. The phrase “solid like a rock” may need to be updated to “solid like a RAC.”
♫ Freelance Whales – Hannah (Ra Ra Riot Remix) / Freelance Whales and Ra Ra Riot together on a track? Why hasn’t this happened before?
♫ Beastie Boys – Make Some Noise (Passion Pit Remix) / The same could be said for this pairing. Triple chocolate funk.
♫ NewVillager – LightHouse (PUNCHES Remix) / More Punches!! And on that sweet new NewVillager track to boot!
♫ Alex Winston – Sister Wife (Ladyhawke Remix) / Allegedly Ladyhawke’s first remix ever. So at least we know what she has not been doing the past 3 years. Where you at, girl?
♫ The Chain Gang of 1974 – Undercover (Twin Shadow Remix) / Don’t know this Chain Gang fellow but Twin Shadow sure makes him seem intriguing.
♫ Freelance Whales – Girl U Want (Devo cover) / Yes. This is what is up.
♫ The Silent League – Texico Bitches (Broken Social Scene cover) / Don’t know the original but this cover sure has legs. That run. And arms. That shred. Ungh. Love it.
♫ Mayer Hawthorne – Mr Blue Sky (ELO cover) / Fun times.
♫ Ezra Koenig – Papa Hobo (Paul Simon cover) / That guy from… you know… covers… oh whatever.
