TBE Digest 11 – 6.28.2010 [Klaxons, Local Natives, Of Montreal, Brandon Flowers, !!!, …]

Yo! Here is a bunch of stuff you might be interested in hearing/downloading/jamming to/raising an eyebrow at! Your options are basically limitless!

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

♫ Klaxons – Flashover / Klaxons’ massively acclaimed 2007 debut never struck a chord with me but now that I have been revisiting it I am realizing I missed out on an awesome album. This new track of theirs isn’t getting me as hyped as I am for their old stuff but who knows what will happen when I hear all of forthcoming Surfing The Void.

Do I even need to write intros to these things anymore? I’m trying to keep these things leaner and meaner so let’s get on with the show!

♫ Prairie Cartel – Cracktown (Hey Champ Remix) / Umm, did you read who is on this track? Yeah, its fresh, but you knew that already. Bust out the strobe light and get freaky. [original post / more HC]

♫ Fool’s Gold – Surprise Hotel (Mad Decent’s Toadally Krossed Out Remix) / Toad croaking! Yes! Leave it up to Mad Decent (Diplo from Major Lazer, as far as I know) to come up with that stroke of brilliance. [original post]

♫ Major Lazer – Jump Up (Laza Beam Remix) / Speaking of the Major, how’s this jam for a “Jump Up” remix. Nothing mindblowing but it’s hard to mess up the banger-ocity on this track.  [original post]

♫ Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me (Gigamesh Remix – FINAL Version) / Mike Posner is back with a new mixtape full of his stoner hip-hop jams. There is an early version of this Gigamesh remix on it but ignore that business cause this is the version that you are supposed to be loving. If you are listening then you know why. [original post / more Gigamesh]

♫ Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) / It’s A-Trak on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, no surprise it’s a goodie. Better late than never.

♫ Phoenix – Armistice (YACHT Remix) / My favorite new remixers thrown down on this Phoenix jam (from their Wolfgang remix album.) If only they could make their own jams this listenable. [more Phoenix / YACHT]

♫ Passion Pit – Little Secrets (Hey Champ Remix) / Hey Champ put this one through the discofier for a jam worth of your best head bobbing, finger snapping, dance moves.  [more PP / HC]

♫ Just Jack – Doctor Doctor (Fred Falke Remix) / Fred Falke mellows this jam right out, turning it into one of those walking-home-at-twilight jams. [original post / more FF]

♫ Sean Bones – Dancehall (Bodega Girls Remix) / This one gets a bit repetitive but I’ve also found myself zoning out to it.  [original post / more BG]

♫ The Hood Internet – Just A Friendomania (Biz Markie vs Phoenix vs Classixx) / The Hood Internet are back again with this decade-mixing mashup that is inspired, to say the least. [more HI]

BODEGA GIRLS AIN’T music to sit to so grab THAT COLD one and join the party

Bodega Girls

you took what’s mine and made it yours, and that ain’t alright

♫ Bodega Girls – Ain’t That Cold

This song is a party. Like a whole party. A really good party. All in one song. You know how I feel about this: I feel awesome! Boston’s Bodega Girls previously gave us a remix of Port O’Brien that didn’t leave me expecting this level of fun from their original material. “Ain’t That Cold” is a back-and-forth breakup throwdown between jilted lovers that finishes the fighting by 2:55. The next 2 instrumental minutes of party I are surely for the sweet dance-off. (Winner gets the cat.) I love how they tae their time with the track and clocking at over 6 minutes it still ends too soon. Bodega Girls’ straight up guitar and drums party are definitely being slept on right now. They have barely 1300 listens on Last.fm despite a second stellar track “She’s Into Black Guys.” Grab that one over at RCRD•LBL and if you are really feeling them then bust over to their fundraising site where they are offering some wild package deals to raise funds for recording.

VS.You know what sucks? Being underwear-bound at your laptop because your face-hair trimmer lost charge midway through it’s duty so you cant shower or go out. You know what is great? Remixes and beer! What happens when you put them all together?
