[STREAM] DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE know YOU ARE going to hear their new album like A TOURIST is going to get swindled in a taxi

and define your destination, there’s so many different places to call home

I’m pretty stoked on this new Death Cab song. Sure, their last album could put a hyperactive 8 year old to sleep and their current look is rather creep-tastic but I wouldn’t be surprised if Gibbard and Co pull it out big time on LP number 7. Codes and Keyes is out May 31st and what’s odd is that Ben Gibbard and Nick Harmer have both been quoted as saying it will be “a much less guitar-centric album than we’ve ever made before.” I don’t know what to think about that since the guitar noodling is what makes this track so fantastic. Weirder things have happened  [I’m not going to say anything about She].

[STREAM] BIG SLEEP may only be about as real as GHOSTS

i’m dreaming, you’re bleeding, depleting, i’m bouncing off the floor and your ceiling

Nothing like a Saturday to sneak in a cheeky stream here. Nobody knows squat about Big Sleep except that are from Manchester and have neither a Facebook nor MySpace. This is the lone song on their Soundcloud but it’s a rock solid jam and I’d be doing you all a disservice not to post it here. So dive in, enjoy, and keep an eye out for more from these guys. I know I will. Ghosts by B I G S L E E P

Remix Roundup Vol. 43 – 4.29.2011 [LYKKE LI, MOBY, FOSTER THE PEOPLE, THE KLAXONS and more… ]

If you are an avid TBE follower you may have noticed we have had some hackers on our site lately.  So, we thought we would let you know we’ve hired some robot ninjas to judo chop the shit out if them.  Oh, you didn’t hear?  Malware Ninjas to the funking rescue!  They have laser beams, flying baby space saucers (just like the movie Battery), boob guns, and really… anything your imaginative mind could ever muster. They are now here to stay and solve any issue TBE may ever encounter.  For now, in this thing we call “the mean time”, enjoy our latest edition of our Remix Roundups.  Annnnd, by the wayss, we are experimenting with some new graphics from our local Austin friend Danielle Villarreal.

[MP3] DREAM JEFFERSON are probably happy as Canadian clams that they aren’t at WESTMINSTER ABBEY

that stance harder than a frank miller batman, couldn’t get a grip with a wish and a fat chance

♫ Dream Jefferson – Westminster Abbey

Royal Wedding, Will & Kate, blah blah blah. The ONLY redeeming factor I can find in all this is it enticed Dream Jefferson to squeeze out another track that I can rub on my ears. This tribute to lost chances with a future princess is a much smoother affair than their epic party-rap EP Sasquatch Bury Their Dead but still has their Grade A Canadian maple syrup flavored stamp all over it. So watch the wedding – if you must – or just kick back with this jam and thank your lucky stars you aren’t waking up at 8am to fight through throngs of Royal fanboys eager to throw their necks out trying to get a look at a parade. You can also be thankful “Westminster Abbey” is the first single off of Dream Jefferson’s upcoming Punch Perm EP. Now that’s news worth some TV coverage.

[MP3] VACATIONER invite us on a well deserved TRIP

i need a fix to put me to sleep, a permanent kick of what’s kicking me

♫ Vacationer – Trip

Sit back. Yes, just sit right back in that chair. Close your eyes and listen.  It’s the sound of summertime and it’s getting louder thanks to Vacationer. I have no idea who they are or where they are from but I do know they are taking me on a journey to a magical place. Their perfectly titled debut single is also their only track but with sounds like these massaging my ears I’m less worried about them flubbing a follow-up. And even if they do, I’ll be too relaxed to care. Or I’ll be watching the video again. Nice.

[MP3] SLEEPER AGENT are going to GET IT hot and steamy for DADDY

oooh, i’m not a baby no more

♫ Sleeper Agent – Get It Daddy

Rambunctious drums, fuzzed-out guitar,  yelped vocals, and a dollop of “Ooh-oooh”s and we’ve got a firecracker of a jam to propel us out of any Easter-feast stupor we may be suffering from. This Kentucky based band have a full-length on the horizon in August but before then will be heading on the road with Cage The Elephant and Manchester Orchestra. I have a strong feeling that catching these guys live may be the best way to full soak in the sweat of their southern fried soul-punk. Mmm, mmm, good.
