Shameboy – “Trippin” ft. Max Marshall (Christopher Norman Remix)

Longtime TBE fave Christopher Norman returns again with a remix that gently lifts you off your seat and nudges you into the night sky. The lights of your world below slowly fade to flickering specks and our mind opens up to a whole new cosmos of slow motion space.  Read more

The Vantage – “Place In The Water” (MARK CHILL Remix)

Add this massive body groover to your arsenal of battle jams to fight those Monday blues. Hard to be bummed when you feel like a 15 foot long alligator with sunglasses and a fashionable bathing suit taking over the beach volleyball court from all the chumps who don;t even know how to set. Eat sand! Read more

Max Frost – “Let Me Down Easy”

Music for… reigniting your love for Max Frost and slowly easing into the week.

Location: Austin, TX

Future: Max is signed to Atlantic so fingers crossed for a full album soon.

Bop English – “Dani’s Blues (It Was Beyond Our Control)”

Sounds like… a slightly calmer J. Roddy Walston. Just as jangly and catchy but a little less likely to fall straight off the rails. Which can be just right for a sunny Wednesday afternoon. Fans of White Denim will recognize the voice of James Petralli. Bop English is his solo project.

Location: Austin, TX.

Future: Taken from the debut album ‘Constant Bop’ out April 13th/14th on Downtown Records (US) and Blood & Biscuits (UK/EU)

Wild Child – “Rillo Talk” (apollo x’s waiting for the rave remix)

Music for… those of us in need of a bit of throwback funk in our smooth indie slow jams.

Location: Both from Austin.

Future: I’d like to see some real collaborations from these camps. Just hang and make it happen!



Tegan and Sara – “I Was a Fool” (SPEAK Remix)

Music for… Tegan and Sara fans who wondered what Heartthrob would have sounded like with a bit more edge. The wonderful dudes in SPEAK give us a taste by taking “I Was A Fool” through the back door of the madhouse and letting it play with the slightly unhinged.

Location: Austin, TX

Future: SPEAK will be opening for RAC on his upcoming tour, PLUS a show opening for Future Islands here in lucky-ass LA. See dates here.

SPEAK – “Gates”

Sounds Like: A beautiful future where synths take a backseat to innovative songs with interesting structure and no fear of guitar solos.

Location: Austin, TX

Future: A tour with Gemini Club and The Griswolds in June. Hot damn.
