Brandon’s TBE Digest 26 [8.10.2011] New Jams, Remixes, & Covers!

Brandon’s TBE Digest is a place where I gather up all the recent jams that are worth a listen (or 10) but don’t necessarily need their own post. Here you will find new tracks by known bands, remixes, covers, and even mashups if they are interesting. My favorites of the lot are in bold.

See that nifty little intro in italics up there? Yeah, it was brought to my attention that these Digests didn’t come with much in the way of explanation and even dedicated TBE readers may not really understand what the heck these are considering I haven’t explained them in about 22 volumes. Oops. Anyway, this Digest has some real jam-a-roonies so quit reading my baloney and get in there!

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


♫ The Rapture – How Deep Is Your Love / The Rapture return after waaaay too many years absent with a jam. It’s no “Whoo Alright” but it does bode well for more sweetness from these guys.

♫ Toro y Moi – Saturday Love / Toro y Moi gave us a Summer present! Thanks Chad!

♫ Teddybears – Weed In A Rizzla (feat. Trimbal) / I really don’t know what to expect from Teddybears any more. This is kinda a jam but it sure is different.

♫ Outasight – Figure 8 / The original track behind one of the years best remixes doesn’t pack quite the same punch but it does have a fun video. Grab his whole EP for free here.


♫ Tim & Jean – I Can Show You (Jump Jump Dance Dance Remix) / Both Tim & Jean AND Jump Jump Dance Dance coming through big time here! More of both, please. This is nice! Sing along with me!

♫ Givers – Up Up Up (CSS Remix) / CSS have always had a flair for remixing and it’s nice to see them back in the game!

♫ Channel Cairo – Twenty (RAC Maury Mix) / RAC Maury reminding us that there is more than one King Midas working in RAC Castle. Anyone heard the original?

♫ Punks Jump Up – Chimes (Younger Than Me Remix) / Punks Jump Up finally lay down some of their original stuff and then get it nicely flipped by Younger Than Me. Plus cowbell! Friday night, are you here yet?

♫ ANR – Stay Kids (Memory Tapes Remix) / It’s a lot like listening to the original. Until you realize you are in a dream. And you can fly. But only like 4 feet off the ground. More like floating really.

♫ Glasvegas – Geraldine (The Soundmen Remix) / The Soundmen tackle an odd one here but not-surprisingly come out unscathed and benefitting us all for the effort.

♫ Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata (Sound Remedy Remix) / Sheit gets twisted. Beware. But beware in a good way, if you know what I mean. There is dub-step afoot…

♫ Funeral Party – NYC Moves To The Sound Of LA (Dave Sitek Rmx) / I was searching for more Sitek remixes and found this old gem. Always nice to see a remix of a track I covered way back.

♫ Austra – Spellwork (MNDR Nighttime Remix) / I saw MNDR play with Mark Ronson a few weeks back. I still can’t figure out if she is hot. But I do know this remix is pretty cool.


♫ Turboweekend – With every heartbeat (Robyn cover) / Awww, yeah! A whole new feeling on a classic.

♫ Kate McGill – Flaws (Bastille cover) / Tender and sweet “Flaws” cover for a different spin on the epic original.

♫ Salem – Till The World Ends (Britney Spears cover) / Jesus, guys. Way to creep the hell out of this one.
