Brandon’s TBE Digest 16 – 11.23.2010 [Theophilius London, Passion Pit, Girl Talk, Tegan & Sara, …]

TBE Digest 16 by the burning ear

I’m trying something new with this weeks Digest! Peep the tidy Soundcloud player above for individual tracks and comments from me (beginning of each track). Zip file is still downloadable below!

Please let me know what you think of this tighter, sleeker, TBE Digest experience! A massive pain in the ass or a step in a good direction? (It’s certainly a hell of a lot easier to put together…)

Remember, for more jams or by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!

Remix Roundup Vol. 26 – 9.18.2010 [Ra Ra Riot, Big K.R.I.T., RAC, The Ting Tings, Crystal Castles, ARMS, The Ting Tings, etc…]

So props to Joel & Scott for dropping some of their remix knowledge on us last week. 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!

ARMS avoid the HEAT & when HOT jump in the WATER

blood on your face, you were born for the chase, wherever we go

♫ ARMS – Heat & Hot Water

Back when ARMS first grabbed my ear it was the side project of the guitarist for Brooklyn’s Harlem Shakes, Todd Goldstein. Now that those TBE faves have broken up, Todd has fleshed out his solo project and followed up 2008’s Kids Aflame LP with a free EP! As if that beautiful album art wasn’t enough, “Heat & Hot Water” immediately stands out with it’s vibrating bass, tinkling drums, and Todd’s fantastically tender vocal stylings. This guy’s voice is just great. The ARMS EP is overall mellower than Kids Aflame but still a good (and free!) starting point for new fans. “Shitty Little Disco” below will give you a taste of what ARMS can do when they get pumping. “Whirring” is also an essential track and along with “Kids Aflame” should help you decide if you want to go on living without ARMS.
