NEW RELEVENT JAMS
â™«Â 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.
â™«Â Javelin – Cowpoke / Javelin released a new album of western-soundtrack-esque songs that were inspired by their US tour last year through the Southwest.
â™«Â The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – My Way /Â Simon Muschinsky of TBE favorites When Saints Go Machine has a side project with San Diego emcee NOTE. This is it. Funky. Nice.
â™«Â Bon Iver – Calgary / New Bonny Eye. Word.
â™«Â Anna Rossi – Safety Of Objects / Anna Rossi finally comes out with some new bouncy original fun after her string of fresh covers. Her album Heavy Meadow is out now and streamable here.
â™«Â 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.”
â™«Â Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks (Myndset Remix) [Soundcloud]Â / Kings of the recent Great Escape Festival, Foster The People have a debut album out and a fresh new remix of their ’10 summer jam.
â™«Â Freelance Whales – Hannah (Ra Ra Riot Remix) / Freelance Whales and Ra Ra Riot together on a track? Why hasn’t this happened before?
â™«Â Beastie Boys – Make Some Noise (Passion Pit Remix) / The same could be said for this pairing. Triple chocolate funk.
â™«Â NewVillager – LightHouse (PUNCHES Remix) / More Punches!! And on that sweet new NewVillager track to boot!
â™«Â 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?
â™«Â The Chain Gang of 1974 – Undercover (Twin Shadow Remix) / Don’t know this Chain Gang fellow but Twin Shadow sure makes him seemÂ intriguing.
â™«Â Frank Ocean – Swim Great (Mo Green Remix) / Not a proper remix, per se, but just Mo dropping his own rhymes over Ocean’s 2011 staple of my stereo. Whatever, any excuse for more Ocean.
â™«Â Freelance Whales – Girl U Want (Devo cover) / Yes. This is what is up.
â™«Â 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.
â™«Â Trails – Animal (Miike Snow cover) / You know I love me some “Animal.”
â™«Â Mayer Hawthorne – Mr Blue Sky (ELO cover) / Fun times.
â™«Â Ezra Koenig – Papa Hobo (Paul Simon cover) / That guy from… you know… covers… oh whatever.
what happened to the dubstep roundups?
THE DETROIT SONG! YES!!! Papa Hobo I mean. Â ( i was born in detroit) <3 <3 <3Â
if you haven’t listened to broken social scene before this, you really should! one of the best in canada for sure.
You are so right about RAC. Midas touch. Just looked em up – interesting story. Kind of a remix hit factory. Reminds me of Swemix or something.Â http://remixartistcollective.com/who
The Freelance Whales remix sounds a LOT like Discovery. Makes sense, I guess, since Wes Miles made up half of Discovery. Haha
I know some of their stuff, just never got into them and had never heard this jam.
Yeah, except Andre does like 90% of their mixes (under the “RAC mix” moniker”) and then Andrew Maury does a few each year (RAC Maury mix). Andre is definitely the evil genius behind everything. And by “evil” I mean “awesome.”
The Mediefire file has been taken down, any fix?
Dunno why. Weird. You can still download tracks individually by right-clicking.
