[GIVEAWAY] Princeton’s ‘To the Alps’ 7″ Vinyl Giveaway

Princeton's 'To the Alps' 7

If you have been following The Burning Ear for years then you know I love me some Princeton. And if you are a Vinyl Moon member who refers a friend then you might get their LP Remembrance of Things to Come in your next shipment. So yeah, I love spreading the good Princeton vibes which is why I’m stoked to be partnering with Hit City USA to give away of Princeton’s 2011 “To The Alps” 7″ single. It was a limited pressing of 500 colored 7″ vinyl, released March 29th, 2011, exactly 5 years ago today. So we’re giving away 5 copies!* The band is no longer active but have been rumored to be plotting a few reunion shows… This is the perfect way to get hyped for them. Read more

Remix Roundup Vol. 50 – 9.1.2011 [Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse, Theophilus London, Active Child, and more… ]

And we’re off. After far too long a break and a road trip from hell, I’m back. Not just in Washington state, but I’m here to blow those sweet little eardrums out.

It’s hard to believe its been a year since Scott and I joined Brandon and took over the remix responsibilities for TBE. Yet here we are a year later, a year wiser, 360 days more disinguished and more handsome than ever.

So, let’s do this.

Remix Roundup Vol. 50.

Keep it Nurdy

♫ Jason Derulo – Don’t Wanna Go Home (SmarterChild Remix) / SmarterChild gave us his amazing remix of City and Colour’s “Fragile Bird” a few weeks back under his other production name Richard Powda’.  This time he drops a floor pleaser sure to melt dance floors around the world.  Fan his Facebook.

♫ Battlekat – Into The Forest (DREAMTRAK DIAMOND SOUND Remix) / Its not often enough we get DDS mixes, but it apears to be worth the wait.  The synth build around the 2:40 mark is genius.  Raise that glass and cheers to the heavens. Read more

NEW RELEVENT JAMS

♫ Jamaica – 1324 Jericho / New Jamaica track from their debut album I’ve yet to be inspired to listen to. Anyone heard it? This one is kinda basic but fun.

♫ TV On The Radio – Caffeinated Consciousness / Well, it’s certainly no “Wolf Like Me.” New album is Read more

Joel & Scotts Remix Roundup Vol. 30 – 10.29.2010 [Lady Gaga, Clock Opera, Vampire Weekend, Zowie, La Roux and more]

Look people, its Halloween weekend which means shits going to get a little bit bonkers (at least here in the US).  We, Joel & Scott happen to be rather large fans of the ridiculous.  So, since we are so thrilled about this special weekend we wanted to set you off in epic fashion.

Here’s a massive cup of RR Vol.30 in your eardrums to start your weekend.

Yeah, that’s right…  We have a ridonculous logjam of tunes to throw at you.  Looks like our goal of just 12 songs is out the window, as we will have to bump it up to 20 for a while to get rid of some of this mass.  You’re welcome.

Lastly, don’t forget to break some dance floor hearts this weekend.

And oh yeah,….  Get Nurdy’

♫ The Dance Party- Sasha Don’t Sleep (Dillon Francis Remix) / Brandon posted another rad mix of this song too, not to mention the original track back in 09.  We’ve really taken a liking to this Sasha girl, and we’re pretty sure  that this Dillon Francis remix will keep her dancing.

♫ Lady Gaga- Monster (Computer Blue Remix) / Ummm yes.  Computer Blue, the duo from OK city have graced all of our eardrums with a BANGER.  This one is special.

Look forward to more from them as I slowly relinquish my iron grip on this site’s content and open us all up to more sweet sweet jams! In the meantime I have a fresh batch of remixes from my own satchel of fun to share with you all! Quick, get to it, it’s Saturday!

ACTIVE CHILD ponders what will happen WHEN YOUR LOVE IS SAFE in his heart

active child

somewhere between making love and being friends

♫ Active Child – When Your Love Is Safe

There are great songs about falling in love and there are great songs about breaking up. This is a song about that disturbing middle ground. And it’s great. Props to Active Child for repping Los Angeles with quality jams like this. “When Your Love Is Safe” has been haunting me for days now and I just can’t stop singing (moaning?) along. I really wish I could write more on it but I am typing this outside in -4 C temperature and my fingers apparently don’t love you all as much I my heart does. Alright, enough sentimentality, this is a song about heartbreak! Get in!
