Lorde – “Team” (DELUKA remix)

As an early Lorde supporter, I’m as happy for her success as the next guy but I’ve got to admit that some of her recent tracks (“Team” included) left me underwhelmed. Cheers Deluka for kicking some life into the jam with this bouncy hip-shaking remix. Just a touch of that spacey M83 synth vibe goes a long way. I just wish this was the version I heard on the radio all the time!

Buffetlibre – “Royals Ft. Emanuel (I’m From Barcelona)”

Spaniards and longtime TBE faves Buffetlibre just released a new covers EP with something for everyone in the indie family! First off, all sale proceeds go to the awesome relief organization Oxfam International, so you know its a legit project. Secondly, they cover 2013 favorites like CHVRCHES and Lorde, as well as older classics like Neutral Milk Hotel and Jesus & Mary Chain. Even Dragonette lends some help on a track! It’s a beautiful celebration of song with some amazing talents at work. Dive in and enjoy! And don’t forget to check out Buffetlibre’s other work. Like this killer “Blurred Lines” remix. Hot damn.  They slay like few others.

Buy the Elaine’s Ghost EP here. Seriously.

[EP] Lorde – THE LOVE CLUB (w/ “Million Dollar Bills”)

Lorde

and now i’m letting you know

New Zealand’s Lorde is not just another indie-pop-girl riding the trend (even though she is Grimes-approved). Even though she is just 16, I feel like something great is going on here. This post is weeks late because I couldn’t figure out which track I liked best. So dive into her waves of tiny swagger and get funky with the chopped beats of “Million Dollar Bills,” the slow burn of “Royals,” or the laid back synth bounce of the title-track. Its all good in Lorde’s hood.
