Brandon’s TBE Digest 26 [8.10.2011] New Jams, Remixes, & Covers!

Brandon’s TBE Digest is a place where I gather up all the recent jams that are worth a listen (or 10) but don’t necessarily need their own post. Here you will find new tracks by known bands, remixes, covers, and even mashups if they are interesting. My favorites of the lot are in bold.

See that nifty little intro in italics up there? Yeah, it was brought to my attention that these Digests didn’t come with much in the way of explanation and even dedicated TBE readers may not really understand what the heck these are considering I haven’t explained them in about 22 volumes. Oops. Anyway, this Digest has some real jam-a-roonies so quit reading my baloney and get in there!

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


♫ The Rapture – How Deep Is Your Love / The Rapture return after waaaay too many years absent with a jam. It’s no “Whoo Alright” but it does bode well for more sweetness from these guys.

♫ Toro y Moi – Saturday Love / Toro y Moi gave us a Summer present! Thanks Chad!

♫ Teddybears – Weed In A Rizzla (feat. Trimbal) / I really don’t know what to Read more

FUNERAL PARTY knows that NYC MOVES TO a different beat than THE SOUND OF LA

useless talking about that now, everybody still likes to fuck around

♫ Funeral Party – NYC Moves To The Sound Of LA

Those are bold words to throw out in a song title but LA natives, Funeral Party, are more then welcome to rep my hometown on this jam. From the cowbell, to the propulsive guitar shredding, these guys sure know how to get me moving! And the song is actually apparently about how both trend-setting cities are lame, so think on that for a bit. In fact, don’t. Just rock. The band’s Bootleg EP dropped a year and a half ago but has two more solid cowbell-infused dance-punk jams worth picking up . Even though they just opened for Julian Casablancas on his solo tour nobody stateside except B over at Audio Muffin seems to have them on their radar, and he wrote about this jam a year ago. Funeral Party are finally picking up some traction in the UK where this single is dropping soon and where they recently opened for The Drums. Let’s hope their live show has tightened up ’cause this would be some fun shit to get crazy too!
