French Horn Rebellion & Bee’s Knees – “Catalina Dice feat. Boulevards” // Felix Decombat


I wasn’t sure what French Horn Rebellion were rebelling against, but after their collaboration with Bees Knees and Boulevard, I’m pretty sure it’s “lame parties”. Because “Catalina Dice” is guaranteed to prevent exactly that. Bring some funky brass to your next soirée.

French Horn Rebellion – “Presentation (prod. Champagne)” // Christopher DeLorenzo

“Presentation” is about the delicate balance between being true to yourself when meeting someone new while also trying to impress them. In that spirit, The Burning Ear thinks you should unleash all of your weirdest dance moves on date #1. The Sprinkler, the Shopping Cart, that weird one you saw Uncle Roy perform at your cousin’s wedding – don’t wait to unveil them, just put them all out on the table. If the other person is “the one”, they’ll accept you for who you are.

Or maybe there’s a reason we’re a music blog and not a romance blog. It’s a fun song, ok?

French Horn Rebellion — “Seven” // Jenn Liv

New from old school TBE faves French Horn Rebellion who always bring the grooves. And this time brought some tears as well.

“When you’re far apart from the one you love, at the moment you are finally reunited, nothing can come between you and destiny. But destiny can be like a mountain. It takes a lot of work to get to the top, but even then, dark emotions like jealousy can throw you off its peak, and toss you into the shadows.”

French Horn Rebellion & Savoir Adore – “The Fire”

French Horn Rebellion & Savoir Adore - The Fire

There were a coiple years there after 2009’s “Beaches and Friends” when it looked like French Horn Rebellion were gone forever. Who knows what they did during that downtime, but the Brooklyn brothers are back with some serious sounds. “The Fire” is their third collaboration this year and I’m loving how each pairing brings a new texture to their sounds. Keep it coming!

[MP3] French Horn Rebellion – “Caaalifornia (The Soundmen Remix)”

The Soundmen have been behind a lot of my favorite remixes of the past 4 years and this take on recent fave “Caaalifornia” shows exactly why. They aren’t afraid to take a track in a totally weird direction. This is the kind of script-flipping that made RAC great back in the day. Push the envelope. Take me somewhere new. I will follow.
