Brandon’s TBE Digest 30 – [11.3.2011] New Jams, Remixes, & Covers!

Artwork by Jacob Youngblood Ziegler

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.

A big batch of goodies this time round. Plus, since it’s a nice round number Jacob Youngblood Ziegler hooked us up with a fancy Anniversary Edition of the TBE Digest art. Stare at it in awe as you listen.

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


♫ Phantogram – Don’t Move / Phantogram return with the Nightlife EP and this is a great sign of the continued sexiness these two are working with.

♫ Body Language – Seeds of Sight / More spaced out sex funk from one of Brooklyn’s finest.

♫ Vacationer – Gone  While not nearly as good as previous track “Trip” this shows good promise of more magic to come from this Body Language collaborator.


♫ Katie Herzig – Free My Mind (RAC Remix) / Like I said yesterday, there is no better introduction to an artist then a RAC mix. Sit back and let this one layer itself upon you like winter clothes on a brisk night.

♫ Humans – Avec Mes Mecs (Joseph Martin Remix) / Yes! Humans’ party anthem gets a body grooving remix treatment!

♫ Duck Sauce – Radio (Bastille Edit) / At least the endless wait for a proper Duck Sauce album is made easier by banging remixes like this from Los Angeles’s Bastille (Not the UK one).

♫ On-The-Go – In The Wind (Simple Symmetry & Lipelis Remix) / Russia’s underrated On-The-Go get a late night coastal drive wind on the face treatment and its niiiiice.

♫ Lana Del Rey – Blue Jeans (Penguin Prison Remix) / So Lana Del Rey is the hottest thing since sliced bread these days (but seriously, she is pretty hot) and we have all been waiting for a Penguin Prison album for like 34 years so this makes sense. Plus it just sounds good.

♫ Foster The People – Call It What You Want The (The Soundmen Remix) / Yes! Someone finally remixing this FTP jam! And it’s The Soundmen so double Yes!

♫ Mayer Hawthorne – A Long Time (Chromeo Remix) / Now this is a combination made in seduction heaven. Get limber! (For dancing, you pervert)

♫ Radio Ink – Rocket (The 14th Minute & Steve Frank Remix) / The 14th Minute do it again. Dance-tastic!

♫ Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Ffunny Frends (The Naked And Famous Remix) / Fast! Crunchy! Woo! Signature Naked and Famous.

♫ Fanfarlo – Replicate (Teletextile Remix) / Even more haunting than the original. I guess taking out the vocals will do that to a jam.


♫ Kanye West vs Washed Out – Diamonds From Far Away (Carlos Serrano Mix) / Not a bad pairing. Next collab, Kanye?

♫ Skrillex vs Capital Cities – Kill Everybody vs Safe and Sound (Soft Spoken mashup) / This song scares me and I still can’t figure out if its in a good way. I don’t know if I like my happy friendly Capital Cities being eaten by the Skrillex monster.



♫ The National – Twenty Miles To NH Part 2 (The Philistines Jr cover) / So that photo from the cover of Boxer is The National playing the wedding of close friend and producer  Peter Katis. Katis is also in a band called The Philistines Jr. The National apparently really like this guy. All I know is that I really like this song.

♫ Class Actress – Silent Night / Yup, its already time for Christmas covers!
