So I sat down to post the Watch Out ’09 mix and I was suddenly paralyzed by a fear that my beloved Little Boots would be lost in the shuffle and go under appreciated. That’s why I have decided to hold off on the mix until tomorrow. Until Then…
Bask in the diminutive glory that is Little Boots! If you haven’t heard of this wee synth powerhouse yet then you clearly haven’t been eavesdropping on my iPod (or reading any music blog with a pulse). Besides sweeping awards all over the damnplace she has a fantastic YouTube page where she takes viewer requests for songs to cover and then does so with a variety of bleepy-blippy-flashy instruments. I highly reccomend you sink your aural teeth deep into this one. And if Meddle doesn’t put a little swagger in your scroll then let this remix drop on your dome.

Wallpaper. (punctuation included) are two dudes making funky-glam-dance-rock out of Oakland CA. Their tracks are rivaled only by their fashion sense.
RAC (Remix Artists Collective) are four globally dispersed DJs who have actually never met. They take turns remixing everyone you have ever loved (and then some). You will be hearing a lot of their jams in the future.

eMusic calls Sin Fang Bous “Iceland’s Sufjan Stevens” which I find to be a bit preposterous because Sufjan’s tunes are never this cacophonous and rarely this propulsive. This guy is one to watch in ’09.
Speaking of 2009 this Friday will feature the latest MixTape from TBE “Look Out ’09: Where the music promises to be better than the title.” Thats right, my picks of some artists that we will (should) be hearing much more of in ’09.

I am loving this big ups to Norm MacDonald. Tell me again why Conan has a talk show and Norm doesn’t?

I’ll tell you what the street sounds like, it sounds like a sliknky riding a bicycle and drinking sunshine in a can. Yeah, like that. The two guys in Friska Viljor show us (once again) that Sweden has the rest of the world by its collective musical balls. P.S. I had a lot of trouble picking which track I wanted to put up here. They are all different and they are all great.

I figure you cats might need an extra beat to digest Part 1 ofÂ What Up ’08? so I’m gonna hold off on Part 2 until Monday. Grab it then, put the 2 parts on 1 CD and let it rock your week until the wheels fall off.
Until then…there is Valentines Day! You know the drill, either you are disgustingly happy or disgustingly sad. EIther way, get over yourself and your need to be validated by others and grab this head-bobber by Beautiful Small Machine. Upon first listen I was hooked by the sweet vocals and bouncy drums (and photos of the mega-hot singer Bree on their MySpace) but with further listens I discovered this to be the most poignant love song I’ve heard in a long time. Take a moment to really listen and I think you will find it descirbes a relationship around you (If not ALL of them around me). If you dont recogize who its about then its probably you. Happy Valentines Day!
On a side note, I helped produce a Valentines Day CD that is available in stores here in Poland. Its a co-production between TVN Lingua (my work), Universal records, and a Polish internet dating service. The 2-disc set has a mellow/dance split that reads better when you replace “dance” with “euro-spazz-trance.” Either way, check out the track list and some samples afer the jump.
