Kicking things off are my 15 favorite covers spanning all genres and damn near all instruments. Guys! Girls! Guys singing girls’ songs! Girls singing guys’ songs! It’s mayhem! Strap in, rock on, and Read more

[COVER] Sunday Girl – “Where Is My Mind” (Pixies cover)

with your feet in the air and your head on the ground, try this trick and spin it, yeah

♫ Sunday Girl – Where Is My Mind (Pixies cover)

Holy smokes. Silence everything and let this one play loud against the hollow air of winter. If all the attention this song has gotten since Fight Club has worn it a bit thin then this will breath life right back in. Sunday Girl strips the Pixies classic to a bones of keys and strings and then laces the whole thing with the lean meat of her crystal pipes. It’s sparse. It’s gorgeous. It’s the beautiful sound of losing it at the holidays. It is also soundtracking a touching UK travel commercial.

[EXCLUSIVE RMX] Sunday Girl – “Love U More” (RAC Mix)

you can turn wine into water, turn sadness into laughter, but you know…

♫ Sunday Girl – Love U More (Sunscreem cover) (RAC Mix)

Sunday Girl may sing, DJ, and model but none of that means much in comparison to any musician’s true honor: being remixed by RAC. The indie styled gloss-pop songstress can be quite sugary on her original tracks so it’s a breath of fresh air to hear the sparse funk treatment RAC has woven into these delicate bones. Her voice pops so much more, it’s silky waves sharper as they deliver the harsh reality of the lyrics. Such bitter news has never sounded so sweet.

Remix Roundup Vol. 25 / 9.12.2010 / Joel & Scott present: Crystal Castles, Mike Posner, The Temper Trap, B.o.B, Rihanna, and more!

Let me introduce ourselves for we are the new faces….  Who are we you ask?  Well I’d like to think we laugh with the sinners and cry with the saints, but honestly we don’t hang out with too many of them saints.  I wish we were clever and able to come up with something sweet to say like this…

Born out of the mouths of wolves and serpents.
Raised up by degenerates and whores in the gutters of your forgotten cities.
Among the spawn of your outcast, your rebuked, your lepers.
Breaking bread with gangsters, hustlers, real motherfuckers
Scorned by your fearful leaders, and your simple masses.
Bearing no marking, no number, no names.
Only one sign, the Rad Omen.
For we are many, for we are many.

But, that would be ridiculous; as that is Rad Omens Bio on Myspace (damn).

The truth is that we are two dudes (Joel & Scott) from Seattle Washington that just love to get Nurdy’ and melt our faces on that dirty d-floor.   Remixes to Us are what platinum haired Bunnies are to Hugh Hefner.  We love Read more
