I can’t believe it’s August already. I can’t believe TBE is almost 6 months old. I can’t believe this is the 8th roundup of remixes. I can’t believe you are still reading this. OK, now I really can’t believe it. I cant. Seriously, nothing you say can make me believe you are still reading this. It’s called belief dude, it’s personal, I don’t have to explain or justify it. I mean, yeah, I guess if I saw
Holy shit. I just finished putting together this Roundup and it’s a beast! Fantastic remixes of Miike
I really don’t like MSTRKRFT. OK, I really don’t like MSTRKRFT on their own. Their remixes are usually super on point but their own tunes are usually borderline unlistenable. They have always been obsessed with their own image and when I saw them play live they seemed more interested in their cigarettes and Crown Royal then in playing any decent music (no remixes?!). Well, recently they recruited John Legend to do vocals on a track off of their new LP. The whole thing screams “cheap gimmick,” especially because “Heartbreaker” doesn’t sound like a MSTRKRFT song at all. It’s not self indulgent, it’s listenable, and by golly, I think I like it. It took a few few listens to get over myself my disdain for MSTRKRAP but I am sold. This song is a jam. And so is that artwork! (Waaay better than the album artwork.)
Bury your face in MySpace /// Johnny Legend too!
