WithÂ craziness ofÂ SXSW nearly a week behind us, its feels good to be home… and although I pride myself on my party prowess- I think it will take weeks to fully recover from that madness. Â 51 shows in four days… that has to be a record for an individual party. Â In the mean time (back in reality), I’m supplementing my diet with extreme amounts ofÂ caffeineÂ and sugar. Â If Im diagnosed withÂ diabetesÂ in a week, we’ll certainly know why.
Its only thursday, but with the combo of caffeine and the sweet tuneage below, a spontanouse dance party at work is absolutely necessary. Â Get down with your self.

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

Ace Reporter is TBE alum Chris Snyder who recorded a song every day of 2010 Â (!!) and released them all for free. Much to my peasant surprise, many of them were really good. To culminate his project he has whittled his mammoth collection down and re-recorded and mastered his favorites into a series of (also free) EPs that he is slowly releasing throughout this year. The first, named after one of my favorites from the 365 Project, was the Untouched and Arrived EP. EP closer “Frankfurt” steals the show with it’s driving rhythm and ripping guitars.
Another bit of Ace Reporter goodness is his list of favorite albums of 2010, rendered in the form of five cover songs instead of the usual jpeg and blurb that us bloggers squeeze out. Catch his renditions of tracks by 2010 faves The National, Arcade Fire, Beach House, and Local Natives.

Its been two weeks, but like always, Joel & Scott are back to present Remix Roundup Vol. 36.
Listen party peeps, in 10 we were supposedly “ready for a good night“, but let us tell you something little bit different for 11.Â In 11, we are going to create that good night. Â Why? Cuz this one goes to 11 and itsÂ time for some funky, dazzling, crunk, promiscuous, weird shite to go down.Â And, if that aint enough to motivate you.Â The apocalypse is approaching scary fast these days…
In 11, we forget the fly whips and go with fly chicks, and if your down… you might come to TBE to check out some wicked ass hits.
OHH YEAHZ.Â ENJOY BITCHES!

â™«Â Zero 7 – Medicine Man (Baby Monster Remix) / Here we have LA based Baby Monster giving Zero 7’s Medicine Man the treatment and hot damn we love this sweet sound.Â We met the chaps in Baby Monster a few months back while they were out on tour with the Klaxons; excellent live set and excellent dudes.Â We suggest you seek out their work, if you haven’t already!
It’s Christmas time. I’m in a cabin in the woods. My stolen internet connection is worthless. My family is going through some stuff. I love you all but I’m just not able to give this post all the detailing that it deserves. I hope that you are too busy with your own holiday festivities to care and can just kick back and enjoy this collection of jams for the interesting mix that they are. Dive in and enjoy. I know I’ve been.

At 16 tracks, Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs will be one of the most bloated albums on people’s best of 2010 lists. You can either takeÂ issueÂ that I called the album bloated or you can take issue that I assume it will make the best of cut, but the reality is that both parts are true. In this day of 9 track LPs and running times that barely crack the half hour mark, The Suburbs is practically a double album. Well, thank goodness it isn’t because a, who the fuck likes double albums, and b, The Suburbs works brilliantly as a cohesive 16 track musical examination of life on the outskirts of the city. I have never been a huge Arcade Fire fan but am always curious to hear what they are up to. First taste tracks “The Suburbs” and “Month of May” left me unimpressed but curious of what would follow. Fast forward 2 months and I didn’t need to venture farther than track 2 on The Suburbs before I was thoroughly rocking out to “Ready To Start” (above) and already convinced I was going to like the rest of the album. An hour later I was left more thanÂ satisfiedÂ and itched to repeat the adventure. It’s all the things that people love about Arcade Fire: anthemic, big hooks, lush instrumentation, but somehow it all fits so much better. While there are a handful of epic tracks, there are a bigger handfull that don’t really standout yet but are nonetheless essential to the experience of The Suburbs. I might not be humming them later but I sure as hell am not skipping them in the moment.
Early shoulder-shruggerÂ “Month Of May” has definitely taken on a new persona while listening to the whole disc. Initially seeming like anÂ awkwardÂ attempt at punk rock, it now makes perfect sense and I love hearing it rev up after the 4 relatively calm tracks thatÂ precedeÂ it. Anyway, I’m sure that at this point 94% of you already have The Suburbs but for those other 6% I encourage you to give this one a chance. It just might change your opinion of Arcade Fire, or at the least, 16 track albums. And definitely go check out their video experience for “We Used To Wait.” It’s interactive in the smallest way but packs a huge punch for the short line of text you will enter. And besides, it’s Arcade Fire set to film, something we can all agree is awesome.
