The October 18th release of Penguin Prison’s self-titled debut is interesting for a couple reasons. The first thing is that I didn’t know it came out until 6 weeks late. And I think the second thing is directly tied to the 1st. Penguin Prison has been around so long that it seems hard to believe that his album hasn’t been out for years! TBE has been posting singles from the album since 2009 (above) and that doesn’t even include “Something I’m Not”Â and “Fair Warning” which also came out as singles before the album came out. Add on the heavily remixed “Multimillionaire” and new singleÂ “Don’t Fuck With My Money” and Read more

â™«Â Penguin Prison – Worse It Gets (RAC Mix) / Damn. Jams don’t get much fresher than this. I haven’t heard the original yet but I couldn’t wait another moment to share this slice of audio perfection.Â PenguinÂ Prison and RAC are both firing on all cylinders on this buttery smooth funk fest. This jam could cure depression if administered in daily doses. For reals.
This is it. The best of the best. As determined by me and in alphabetical-by-artist order. This list has been a labor of love and it is an honor to pay tribute to so many fantastic albums. With that said, don’t hesitate to lift your leg and leave your own mark in the comments. Or just track down the albums here that you don’t know and get down with a good set of headphone. I know these lists are self indulgent and often pointless but they are fun nonetheless. A big thank you to all the TBE readers who stick with me day after day and trudge through my ramblings. Ok, I’m out. Carry on! Read more

Holy shit. I just finished putting together this Roundup and it’s a beast! Fantastic remixes of Miike Snow, La Roux, Lykke Li, Phoenix, MSTRKRFT, Daniel Merriweather, and oh so many more. I won’t waste much time here cause you people have work to do after the jump. Oh, and regular readers will notice a few new features. I hope they make your Roundup experience just that much more buttery smooth.
Jack PeÃ±ate’s sophomore album dropped recently and although I had heard lead single “Tonight’s Today” (and seen the crazo video) I was not that psyched for it. For me his debut LP Matinee was fun but forgettable. I guess it’s not a big surprise that on an album titled Everything Is New he flipped the script on us. Gone was the perky and snarky ska pop of songs like “Have I Been A Fool?” (below) and in it’s place was a real maturity, both lyrically and musically. Within the context of the album, “Tonight’s Today” suddenly made a lot more sense. Other great tracks like “Pull My Heat Away”, the title track, and second single “Be The One,” combine to form a great album that reveals more and more with each listen. “Let’s All Die” is the 8th of the albums 9 tracks and despite it’s title is possibly the most fun one. Apparently it’s not an actual recommendation but a recollection of a New Orleans funeral Jack saw as a youngster where all the celebration and partying at such an affair made an impact on him. For those of you new to Jacky P. here is the pretty great “Have I Been A Fool?” for proper chronological listening.
