[PREMIERE – MP3] Germany Germany – “Radiowave” (Germany Germany 2014 Darkwave Edit)

[soundcloud id=’136038376′]

Germany Germany has been underrated and under-appreciated since day 1 but his 2010 super-jam “Radiowave” is an absolute favorite of mine. When the Vancouver Groove-master volunteered to re-edit his own song for the TBE 5 Year Anniversary project I was excited to hear what he had cooked up for us, 4 years later. Its a rare occasion to hear an artists second take on their won music. In this case things got, darker and more twisted. Probably a lot like us compared to 4 years ago. Get into it.

[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.

[PREMIERE] Kid Cadaver – “Stable” (Don Loemax remix)

[soundcloud id=’134505793′]

Kid Cadaver snuck onto the scene in 2013 with one of the most enduring and catchy indie rock jams of the year. If you have seen their sweat soaked live sets, then you know how much more known these guys deserve to be. Hopefully this adventurous remix by newcomer Don Loemax gets them some more ears.

Happy Presidents day! Get weird!

[PREMIERE] Lincoln Jesser – “Run My Heart” (Twin Shadow Cover)

[soundcloud id=’134772808′]

Today is a special day in so many ways. Its Friday, its Valentines Day, and its day 2 in the release of TBE 5 Year Album tracks. This one comes from Los Angeles’ Lincoln Jesser who delivers a fantastic take on Twin Shadow’s “Run My Heart”.

Lincoln Jesser has been going strong for months now, releasing great tracks on the regular. His signature mix of synth and soul makes each new track highly anticipated. However, I don’t think anyone is ready for the magical things he did to “Run My Heart”. That slow grind drop gets me every time.

[PREMIERE] Memoryy & Brothertiger – “Ambling Alp” (Yeasayer cover)

Welcome to The Burning Ear 5 Year Album, a celebration of the first 5 years of TBE. This collection of exclusive covers and remixes includes our favorite bands of the past 5 years.

[soundcloud id=’134418710′ playerType=’html5′ width=’100%’]

To kick off the 5 Year Album Memoryy and Brothertiger are taking us all the way back to 2009, to one of the best tracks of the first year of The Burning Ear. Yeasayer’s “Ambling Alp” was an instant classic the first time I heard it and this cover puts a beautiful spin on the churning beats and dueling vocals. I’m imagining Memoryy and Brothertiger singing back and forth from different space command centers swirling through the stars.

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….
