Scavenger Hunt – “Kiss Me Clean”

Some of use will never get truly clean. But that doesn’t mean we can’t let someone try and kiss until we get there. Cheers to TBE faves and Vinyl Moon alums Scavenger Hunt for the idea. And cheers for the killer remix below as well. I know what playlist I’ll add it to…

Bee’s Knees – “Love Will Never Do” (Janet Jackson cover) Feat. Scavenger Hunt

There are a lot of things to love in the world. That boy across the street. That girl at the gym. Fresh popcorn. Artisanal honey from free range (and spirit) bees. So grab onto a thought of whichever strikes your fancy most and space out with these sweet sounds from two of TBE’s favorites in your ear.   Read more

Scavenger Hunt – Wildfire + “Coffee” (Miguel cover)

New Scavenger Hunt jam got me wanting to run through the woods and hug trees and dance with leaves and start a nature-rave. Pop in all right places with that grounding touch that always keeps Scavenger Hunt easy to keep on repeat.

Also, I’ve been digging on this Miguel cover of “Coffee” since they dropped it but yesterday I heard the original for the first time (I don’t encounter many radios…) and it just made me want to listen to Scavenger Hunt’s version instead. Sorry, Miguel, still love ya!  Read more

Lenno – “Chase The Sun” (Cats Hero remix)

Sounds like… a damn winner! Literally. Remember back in 2011 when Cats Hero remixed Everything Everything for a contest and won? Well he did it again! This time for Lenno and Scavenger Hunt’s summer party jam “Chase The Sun”! Best part, he even infused a bit of that syncopated Everything Everything guitar into the mix. Connecting the dots!

Location: Kent, UK

Future: He wins. We win. Everyone wins.

Lenno – “Scavenger Hunt – Lost” (Lenno Remix)

Music for… Finnish fans of hometown hero Lenno to transport themselves to the tropical beaches of Scavenger Hunt’s soundscapes. In other words.

Location: Finland. Los Angeles.

Future:  Get into Lenno’s original track featuring Scavenger Hunt.

Scavenger Hunt – “Bones”

New Scavenger Hunt! As a lucky Los Angeleno I have been rocking to this song live for months. But now you get to live the magic of the sultry slow groover “Bones”. Get into the song here and catch them on tour now!

[PREMIERE-MP3] Scavenger Hunt – “Lost” (Noah Hyde Remix)

[soundcloud id=’137638401′]

When Scavenger Hunt broke onto the scene last fall with “Lost” it suddenly felt like Summer hadn’t left us. This magical remix from longtime TBE favorite Noah Hyde feels like the Summer of 1987 never left us. Hyde adds his featherlight tough to this airtight mood lifter, doing the original more than justice on its first remix (finally!). I’m just proud to have this partnership happen under the banner of the Burning Ear 5 Year Anniversary Album!

[PREMIERE] Scavenger Hunt – “Latch” (Disclosure cover)

[soundcloud id=’135582506′]

Scavenger Hunt have maintained a 100% sexiness ranking through their 2 original songs and 1 cover so it’s no surprise that they continue pitching a perfect inning with their steamy cover of “Latch”. The song that took 2013 by storm was wrapped in all kinda of production that gets peeled away as Jill’s vocals creep like smoke through a bedroom window. I may be speaking for myself here but I think this version dominates the original any day of the week.

The Happy Birthday TBE Album – With exclusive covers and remixes from Noah Hyde, Pr0files, Lincoln Jesser, Parade of Lights and more…

This is just a teaser to get you all as excited as I am. To celebrate the 5th birthday of The Burning Ear I’m putting together an album of exclusive remixes of covers of the best TBE jams of the past 5 years. Contributing artists like Pr0files, Noah Hyde, Lincoln Jesser, Y Luv, Wiley Webb, Memoryy, Germany Germany, and more will be remixing or covering songs by Miike Snow, Twin Shadow, Scavenger Hunt, Yeasayer, Phosphorescent, Rhye, Frank Ocean, and more.

The list goes one and makes my heart skip a beat every time I read it. And dont even get me started on heart skips when I LISTEN to these jams. Holy cow. You guys are in for a treat.

AND THEN, there is the epic album artwork above created by the amazing Meghan Ellie Smith. I’m basically a mess of excitement over here.

Stay tuned. The project rolls out next week….
