For more jams by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!

NEW RELEVENT JAMS

♫ Jamaica – 1324 Jericho / New Jamaica track from their debut album I’ve yet to be inspired to listen to. Anyone heard it? This one is kinda basic but fun.

♫ Operator Please – Catapult / Australia’s Operator Please dropped a couple super-fun jams a few years back. Their latest has some spunk to it too.

♫ TV On The Radio – Caffeinated Consciousness / Well, it’s certainly no “Wolf Like Me.” New album is out soon.

♫ Big K.R.I.T. – Time Machine / Is it just me or is K.R.I.T. just not as exciting as he was on K.R.I.T. Wuz Here? Maybe I’m crazy.

♫ Junior Boys – ep / New Junior boys album is out in June. More synthy sexy fog machine music.

♫ Childish Gambino – Break (AOTL) / Fun(ny) guy Childish Gambino just dropped a free EP here and then supplemented it with this topical rap over Kanye’s “All Of The Lights.”

♫ Hugh Laurie – Guess I’m A Fool / Dr. House recorded a southern blues album. Weird.

REMIXES

♫ Local Natives – Who Knows, Who Cares (The Botaniks Remix) / Just when you though there couldn’t be another Local Natives remix The Botaniks blow up the whole spot with this amazing thing. Mmmm, so nice. So funky.

♫ Architechture in Helsinki – Contact High (Clock Opera Remix) / When Clock Opera aren’t being the nicest dude’s ever they find the time to work remix magic like this bubbly ear beverage.

♫ Gobble Gobble – Boring Horror (Sundance Remix) / More “Boring Horror”! More Gobble Gobble! Oh, you don’t like it? That’s not what your body said! Oh snap.

♫ Rebecca Black – Friday (RL Grime’s Which Seat Can I Take Remix Ft. LS Royale) / More “Friday”! More Rebecca Black! Haha, but for reals, this remix has some nice flow and smooth rhymes, although it does seem like he is rapping to Rebecca. Kinda creepy. The remix’s artwork is pretty hilarious though.

♫ Cold War Kids – Louder Than Ever (Active Child Remix) / A dark and haunting take on this jam. Funky and eerie all at once.

♫ Bear Hands – High Society (Andreas Lust Remix) / This song is a straight jam no matter how it is served. Bon appetit!

♫ Jackie Wilson – Higher And Higher (PUNCHES Remix) / Throwback fun for the whole family courtesy of the awesome Punches.

♫ Mona – Shoot The Moon (Dave Sitek Remix) / Dave Sitek. Again.

♫ Warpaint – Undertow (Javelin Remix) / Javelin. Yes! Don’t know why the volume is so low but I like Javelin’s funky icing on this cake.

♫ Body Language – You Can (Keep Shelly in Athens remix) / More fun(k) from Body Language! This one is kinda spacey and chill.

MASHUPS

♫ Xaphoon Jones – The Jackson Pit / The title says it all in this nice cut from Chiddy Bang DJ Xaphoon’s 2nd mixtape. It’s available free somewhere.

♫ DJ Invisiboy – Black and Yellow Face / A fresh mashup from DJ Invisiboy who also just dropped a whole free album of jams like this. “Get Close To Me, Papi” is a good place to start.

COVERS

♫ James Vincent McMorrow – Whip My Hair (Willow Smith cover) / Nothing will ever top Skull Tape’s cover for me but JVM does a damn beautiful take on it here.

♫ John Legend – Rolling in the Deep (Adele Cover) / Sing it Johnny!! Those pipes are out of control. Can we get a duet album with these two? Like for real.

♫ Anni Rossi – Rude Boy (Rhianna cover) / Awww yeah. Niiice.
