We all remember On-The-Go as the best band to come out of Russia last year (BesidesÂ Pompeya…) and thankfully they’ve survived another winter toÂ commissionÂ some remixes of their One Spark EP. Kapus tightened up that beat, made the synth line sound evil, and gave the vocals an ominous chipmunk quality, all adding up to a damn groovy jam.
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 inÂ bold.
A big batch of goodies this time round. Plus, since it’s a nice round number Jacob Youngblood Ziegler hooked us up with a fancy Anniversary Edition of the TBE Digest art. Stare at it in awe as you listen.

NEW RELEVENT JAMS
â™«Â Phantogram – Don’t MoveÂ / Phantogram return with the Nightlife EP and this is a great sign of the continued sexiness these two are working with.
First Pompeya and now On-The-Go!? Russia is killing it this year and my ears couldn’t be happier. It starts with a heartbeat and then from the first second of delicate piano chords and vocals “In The Wind” commands your attention, reeling youÂ furtherÂ in with every addedÂ instrument. Even though there is something very melancholy in the music I can’t help but feel wide open and invigorated every time I hear it. It kinda reminds me of the last Foals albumÂ and that is a high compliment.
Hailing from the decaying Russian car industry city ofÂ Togliatti, On-The-Go somehow channel a lush equatorial energy that one doesn’t associate with Mother Russia. Take a look at theÂ gorgeousÂ video for “In The Wind” (below) and it may change your mental picture of Russia forever.
“The Whaler” expands their sound with a little moreÂ swaggerÂ and swing, bringing in a guitar line that melts my ears with every note. So nice. Anyway, On-The-Go have an EP called One SparkÂ and I will be going to get it now. I suggest you do the same.
